BZPower Policy Change Reference

Recommended Posts

Every now and then, the way things work on BZPower gets updated, changed, or revised, but the changes are not always perfectly listed and visible, even if you know where to look. This can lead to confusion or even stress! So, in order to make policy updates more easily found, I'm creating this topic, which will function in the same way that the one for the Tracker in GD does.

 

That is to say that every time a rule or feature is changed - at the general forum or at the specific subforum level -, I will add it to this topic. The information will be added to this first post and in a new post in order to increase visibility as much as possible. I'll provide the date, section, info, and any necessary links.

 

If you have comments or additions, feel free to post here.
