-June 2, 1998: The Dark Forest East (The area not the page) got way more dark and a lot less east. Relative Directions were installed, meaning instead of east and west it behaves from a first person view (i.e. you go left and right). Many people complained because no change is greeted with 100% agreement. It fits the premise of the area, but some who have yet to grow accustomed to it don't seem to like it. Dentin said in response "I had always envisioned DFE as a place that was really dark and nasty, where the sun never makes it to the forest floor, and where its difficult if not impossible to tell where the hell you are if you lose the path."

-April 26, 1998: The coding for mortal avatars were installed. This followed a long conference debating how the most effective way to alleve the animosity and hatred felt lately on the public channels.

Mortal Avatars have the ability to temporarily take a person's gossip, emoting/social ability, and outright silence them.
