Forum Update | August 2022

Announcements category

The new Aɴɴᴏᴜɴᴄᴇᴍᴇɴᴛs category (#announcements) contains all of our official announcements for games, SDG, and any other ongoing projects. Patch notes, teasers, giveaways, events, and more can be found there.

Announcements that would’ve previously been found in sub-categories such as U3 Announcements or U4 Announcements have been moved into this new category, and those old sub-categories have been removed. For now, announcements regarding this forum will continue to be posted from the SDG Forum sub-category (#meta:forum).

With this change comes several new tags, in order to make filtering for specific announcements easier. Filter by game, platform, or type (#announcement, #blog-post, #news, #patch-note, #event, #teaser).

Unethical Conduct policy

The Code of Conduct has been updated with a new Uɴᴇᴛʜɪᴄᴀʟ Cᴏɴᴅᴜᴄᴛ policy. This policy is a revised version of what used to fall under the Posting Etiquette policy.

The Posting Etiquette policy has since been updated to remove any duplicate guidelines.

Meta: Miscellaneous sub-category

The SDG Wiki sub-category has been merged into the Mᴇᴛᴀ: Mɪsᴄᴇʟʟᴀɴᴇᴏᴜs sub-category (#meta:miscellaneous). There is now a new #sdg-wiki tag which can be used in that category.

All topics originally within the SDG Wiki sub-category have been tagged and moved into Miscellaneous instead.
