Cleaning out the Backlog
Posted on Oct 11, 2021 by Miranda Gemini

So, I've been pretty lazy about keeping up-to-date with this whole "Top Hacks" thing. In fact, looks like I haven't touched it at all since.. 2014? Good lord.

In an effort to remedy that, here's a link to a form in which you can nominate 6 years worth of hacks for their respective years' awards. There's no mandatory categories, so feel free to nominate only for the categories you wish:
I'll likely close voting at the end of this month, and hopefully have something special planned for the 6 years of voting.
Thanks for sticking with us for so long!

We're back on the Internet

Our hosting provider had a server failure recently that took the website and forums offline for a few days. They've finally gotten everything back up and running, and we were able to bring everything back up again thanks to Mon732. However, some recent submissions to the main site may have been lost in the database migration :(

Keep hacking Metroid everybody!

Forums are back up

The forums are back up and running thanks to Dopey.

Everything should be fine but if you notice anything broken please let us know by posting in the bugs and discussions board.
