- Thanks to <@545657088534249477> we've updated our sounds list with names, still found at <>
- Moved the creation guides from the wiki to self hosted to prevent data from being changed or lost
- Added some preview text to devtracker searches to help bunny find things
- Updated the design of the guides page, making it easier to navigate to updates and their subsections
- Updated the design of the styles list and some of the collection pages
- Switched to int ids for videos linking to channels, as well as removing hardcoding for featured channels, this should allow for a faster lookup
- Removed welcome text messages

- added new localization tag [$localization_id] (TODO: bypass cache)
- Added our rising tides guide found at <>
- Added rising tide links to the homepage for a limited time
- Added a long shade biome rotation tracker widget to the homepage thanks to sly
- moved stampy the tourist wild trovian mana widgets to a new section along with the long shade biomes
- first images in the carousel will no longer force thumbnails if the image is below 856w and 400h, this allows pretty transparent if desired
- Cut down the size of the news list by removing previews, images, and split list into gamigo and trovesaurus news
- Added button to hide sales from the news on the homepage

Thank you to our gold supporters during June who keep the site alive CayooVR, clashofbanana, naPnaD and KatashiHiro, if you would like to support the work that we do feel free to hide adverts with Trovesaurus Gold <>

- Adjusted the style and removed user and comment links from the homepage recent comments and comments page, the only link takes you to the page the comment was on
- Standardised the light/dark themes to use bootstrap default instead of bootswatch, currently shadow just uses dark, light theme has lost the green trees to the side
- First pass of rearranging item pages, moved most information into their own tabs to condense the page
- Fixed an issue preventing companions from loading rig and blueprint information (as they were handled as items)

- Turned off the anniversary emails for art uploads
- The gallery list has a new design thanks to <@89918356290797568>
- Added the Discover tab to people who aren't logged in
- Removed the feature for logged in users to see art that they haven't liked yet, the performance tradeoff was not worth it

- Removed a number of links from the homepage
- Replaced the carousel image scroller (used mostly on mod pages) left and right images to be hosted locally and not on imgur
- Fixed an issue where External App Token wasn't showing for people on the user page (it still had the development visibility)
- Added a patch date for strings listed on the search
- Added a mod category for "Waypoint"
- Condensed the categories of mods on the homepage
