    Add a "changelog" tab to the spawnmenu.
    -provides quick access to recent gamemode updates
    -Why? We cannot force everyone to go to the forums just to look for the changelog. Some may want to know what changed in the updates. For instance, added prop limitations, nerfs, buffs, added and removed stuff.
    -I made a test tumblr of what I had in mind:

    http: //devinityfmupdates.tumblr.com/
    http://drpitlazarus.altervista.org/devinity/fmupdates.html

    Add a "help" tab to the spawnmenu.
    -provides basic info on the gamemode, how to play, and extra information/tips.
    -made from scratch html help page, not finished

    Add a "other reason" for ban and kick in right-click menu
    -when banning/kicking someone for an unlisted reason, you have to type out the command in either console or chat, which takes more time.
    -it would be a bit easier if a pop-up came up (like voteban) with a text field for # of minutes and another for the reason.

    I like this a lot. There are so many members who don't want to go on/sign up for the forums to see simple changes to the server whenever an update is pushed. And if so it's better than the !motd command because people can find rules easier. I can't see anything wrong with this.

    For the help page, would you like it if the back to top button went all the way to the top or (current) go back to the topic you clicked on (clicking btt on commands will go to commands at the top).

    @Bayrock, @Donkie, what do you think of the OP.

    As far as the button on your help page, I think it works fine either way but I'd personally have it go to the top.

    Great job providing your suggestions and examples. I'm not opposed to adding a 'changelog' or 'help' tab, and it couldn't hurt to have access to that info in-game. As for the 'other reason' suggestion for bans; I'll add that to our tracker, and try to have it pushed with the next patch.

    Update:

    I've implemented the 'other reason' feature you've suggested to the scoreboard:

    It will be included with the next patch. Other feedback is welcomed.

    @Dr. Pit Lazarus @Bayrock We should really include a list of current staff as well in the help page with links for their steam profile.

    How about adding short descriptions of our different events (ie, Pirate round)?
