Happy Holidays!

Yes. We're still here. We don't want to say that Weasyl is to thank for repelling the apocalypse, but we do want to mention two important facts:

1) Weasyl exists.
2) The world didn't end.

You can connect the dots however you like, but it's something to consider. We did, and we've made quite a few updates to the site.

You've probably noticed that page titles now display properly on submissions, even with the use of special characters in the title. We've also made it possible to use an animated GIF as a thumbnail for your submissions, for those works that just cannot be summed up in one static image.

We've also updated the way multimedia submissions are handled, and users can now update their embed URLs after the fact. This makes it easier to correct any mistakes when uploading, rather than having to simply start over again from scratch.

Literary submissions were also revised; .txt files now require UTF-8 encoding to be uploaded to the site. Additionally, we've also fixed a critical error with our uploading system. As some of you writers may be aware, at times when you attempted to upload a .txt to the site, the file would be denied, with our system claiming it wasn't a .txt. We are happy to report this is no longer an issue! Happy posting you craftsmen and women of the written word!

To avoid confusion, we've removed mentions of "User Groups" on the site while this feature is still being ironed out. We'll update you on the progress of this feature as we are able to work on it!

Finally, for new users we've also fixed our Captcha to be much more responsive than it has in the past. Now you should be able to join our site with ease!

We're also happy to announce that we've surpassed 70,000 submissions! It's wonderful to see so many people using our site daily, and for us it's the best present our users could have given us this holiday season!

Thanks for all the support you've given us, and be sure to let us know if you have any suggestions for the site or see any bugs that need to be fixed either on our forums or e-mailing Support@weasyl.com. Follow us on Twitter, Tumblr, and our forums, and feel free to wish us well this holiday season. Happy Holidays everyone, and have a great New Year!

I've connected the dots and came to the conclusion that the world didn't end because Weasyl exists.
