East Midlands Stargazers has been upgraded. There are a couple of changes to note:

  1. The emoticons (emotes) have been replaced with emoji, which will work on any device. Previously our emotes were a little fiddly to use on some mobile devices. Emoji are also universally supported and the web is quickly moving to support these over the older style emotes.
  2. Dark site membership has been simplified. You won't need to go through a complicated "shopping" process any more. You can sign up for and manage your dark site membership using the link at the top of the forum. It's really simple to do.

Please report any bugs to a member of staff.
