A small change has been applied to the helpcenter.


* Anyone that does not have access to the site AdminCP will not be able to see the author of a helpcenter article

- Removed Killerteddy


Due to the change in the way helpcenter articles are displayed, any issues you may find browsing our helpcenter should be reported using the "Report Topic" link at the bottom of the article's content. This change was made to maintain a more professional look to the Helpcenter, as opposed to having it look like a blog.


+ Added some pretty banners to the official Elaztek blogs

+ Added new profile fields: Gitlab, Github, Xbox LIVE, Minecraft, Steam, PC Specs, CU Forums Username, Website, Gender

* Modified internal staff tasks to not show descriptions on importance level - the descriptions made it difficult and unclear what to select, as they were written in the context of bug fixing (over on CU) rather than, well, anything else.

* AdminCP now uses HTTPS

* Users will receive an email if their account is logged into from a new location

- Removed Killerteddy
