March 7th, 2019: The smilies on the forums and Discord server have been updated to use the same names. This change also fixes the issue where emojis would replace smilies if they used the same name, as all smilies now have unique names.

Reactions have been updated to use Azurill smilies instead of the basic ones. :hmmazurill: and :nanihmmazurill: have also been added as reactions, with :hmmazurill: giving +1 reaction point and :nanihmmazurill: giving no reaction points.

March 13th, 2019: We've released some new user banners! For now we've added the "League Champion" and "Creative Soul" banners, for winning a competitive battling tournament and an art contest respectively. These banners have been given to @Stralend, @Moxie, @Nuuk, and @atlus? for winning the MarriProm tournament/art contest. More information about how banners will work in the future can be found in this thread, where you can also bring up your own thoughts.

March 19th, 2019: We have made a minor edit to the Official Rules of the Marriland Forums regarding Rule #6.
Since profile comments are displayed on the front page, users are not allowed to use offsite links in them. However, they may advertise offsite projects without a link, directing others to Private Messages for more details. Onsite links are exempt from this rule.
Additionally, all share buttons and embedded media (barring YouTube and Spotify) have been disabled in order to reduce clutter as we move to comply with Europe's GDPR.

March 19th, 2019: In light of the changes to policies made over the past few months, the Censor Bypassing and Inadequate Posting (roleplaying rule violation) warnings have been deleted. Violations to the Roleplaying Rules will now be handled similarly to board-specific violations in other sections.

March 31st, 2019: The winners of the most recent mafia game have gotten new user banners to celebrate their victory. In the future, the badge will be themed off of the winning party, so green for town and red for mafia, etc.

April 2nd, 2019: After a fun day of making jokes and talking like Team Rocket, the Rainbow Rocket takeover has ended. Here's all that's happened:
  • The Team Rocket Hideout has been archived. Thanks to everyone who make threads and posted there, it was a blast!
  • The Rainbow Rocket skin will stay up, although it's been modified a bit to cause less eye-strain and actually use the full rainbow.
  • The [rainbow][/rainbow] BB code is still up, but the button has been removed from the editor.
  • The default forum skin is back to Cobalt Two, and Team Rocket's Hideout can be viewed in other skins.
  • The Rocket Azurill emote will stay - again, thank you to @theDINOsaurus for making it!
  • Users can still join Team Rocket through their profile (for now), but staff members have their original username colors instead of rainbow. These groups might be removed in the future as they become obsolete. Banners and username colors still only appear in the Rainbow Rocket skin.

April 3, 2019: We have added a rule about cursing in thread titles. We've learned that the censoring system does not censor thread titles at all, and so to keep the forums swear-free for guests we've had to add this rule. We won't issue warnings for this unless it's done excessively (which isn't likely to happen in non-malicious situations), but please try to avoid putting curse words in thread titles.

May 10, 2019: We have made a distinction between Mutes and Bans in the Warning Definition thread in the MID. These changes are due to the different system Xenforo has in place regarding warnings, bans, and appeals.

- Mutes are used as a consequence for users who fail to follow the rules. They activate automatically after a user receives enough warning points, but can also be given manually if staff members deem it necessary. Users who are muted can access the forums, but have limited actions. If a muted user wishes to appeal their mute/warning, or if they want their content to be changed/removed, they may respond to their warning PM. Muted users appear the same as regular members, and after the mute expires they may continue using the site.

- Bans are given to spambots or users who are no longer welcome on the forums. They are usually permanent, and completely limit a user's ability to access the site. Banned users may appeal or make requests for their content to be removed by emailing the administrators at forums@forums.marriland.com. Banned users will have their username struck out, and their profiles are unable to be viewed by regular members.

March 20, 2019: There is now a user banner for the winner of the Nuzlocke Hunger Games, @Kaori! Because we have a bunch of these banners now, we've also launched a guide to what each banner is for under our help pages. Be sure to check it out!

June 8, 2019: The link to the Azurilland Forums archive has been removed from the forum listing. Unfortunately, the archive is broken and doesn't display anything anymore. If the archive is restored we'll re-add the link, but as we are separate from Curse now that's something beyond our control.

July 5, 2018: The Smash Camp forums have been archived, and all forum username colors have been changed back. Cabin 3 (People of Play) will keep their user banners until next year's Smash Camp. For the sake of organization, all of the URLs that had custom routes for the scavenger hunt have been removed - to accommodate this change, all of the pages are now listed in the ??? subforum, which has also been set to display instead of being hidden.

July 20th, 2019: An update has been made to the rules of the Competitive Battling subforum. The deadline for thread revival within that subforum has been extended to 1 year to match the general rule of the forums, rather than the previous limit of 1 month.
