Reasons for these changes as follows....
The ban appeals forum was a mess, and we missed a lot of appeals. We make mistakes, we are human, but hopefully it will be a little better now. The new bug reports/feature requests section should hopefully lead to quicker resolution of website and server bugs. Please visit it frequently to rate the topics, as I will be using this to determine what to fix next, or what to add next. As for the statistics page, this has been the result of a lot of hard work, and MCdigr is looking to improve, do me and Josborn8 a favor and sign up, and give feedback as to how he can improve the service for normal users.
