Welcome to the ResetEra July 2018 newsletter! Although to some these are the summer doldrums, we've been hard at work throughout to make ResetEra the best it can be. We've got quite a lot to share this month!
Milestone: 40,000 Members!
Few thought we'd be here so soon, but if you haven't been following the counter located at the bottom of the front page, we're pleased to announce that ResetEra officially has over 40,000 active members! We warmly welcome all the newcomers and thank everyone for helping us reach this incredible milestone. For the record, this number represents only valid and active accounts. It does not include unapproved accounts, accounts that never confirmed their emails, or banned accounts.
Mod Team Update
As our numbers continue to grow and the workload increases, we find ourselves in need of more help to meet the needs of the community. This month we added five new moderators to the team! Please welcome:
We're very proud of the strong contributions these rookies have made already as well as their firm dedication to the community. As always, you can find the updated staff roster here.
ResetEra 1.5 Update / 2.0 Mention
This month we released the long awaited ResetEra v1.5. This update included a number of significant bug fixes for the DayEra and NightEra themes, as well as the brand new min/max variable width feature so you can decide how much horizontal space you want to use! For more details including a full list of changes, please check out the update thread. If you experience any new or recurring bugs, please report them in the bug report thread.
In that same update thread we also talked a little about the upcoming ResetEra 2.0. That's right, work on "the big one" is now in full swing! We're not ready to pull back the curtains on all the details yet, but suffice it to say that we're very excited. We look forward to sharing the first details with you in the coming weeks.
Official ResetEra PS4 Dynamic Theme Released!
Last month we highlighted an effort by ResetEra's own m0dus to create an Official Dynamic Theme for PS4. Thanks to the amazing talent of m0dus and input from the community, the theme is now complete, released, and available on the North American PlayStation Network! Best of all, it's absolutely free for everyone! You can get the full details, including how to download the theme, how it was developed, and more in the official thread.
We also updated GiftBot with some new features for everyone's favorite friend. There is now a cooldown period between wins and an internal blacklist of the small handful of previous GiftBot abusers; these members will be ineligible to win future giveaways. For full details on this update and future updates to GiftBot, please stay up to date with the Giftbot announcement thread. There will be more features to come in the future!

We'd like to highlight one of our communities where you can play a game, yes, a game, with other ResetEra posters, right here on ResetEra. It's called Mafia, and if you've ever played Werewolf, Town of Salem, or the like then you're probably familiar with the kind of game this is. The community is currently organizing signups for their latest season of Mafia, and they need more players! You get the full details at the Mafia Season 12 sign up thread.
Over the past month, ResetEra users have been voting, debating, and discussing a lot of RPGs. Why? To create the 2018 edition of ResetEra's Top 101 Essential RPGs. While voting is already completed, the results are being unveiled over multiple days. At the time of this posting, ranks 41 through 101 are currently live with more on the way soon. You can join the discussion at the ResetEra's Top 101 Essential RPGs thread.
If you enjoy watching TV, like most of us, you might find it hard to keep track of all the shows available in any given month. Thankfully, there's a ResetEra thread by RatskyWatsky that has your back. Each month he creates an exhaustive list of TV shows including breakdowns of the new shows premiering that month. Check out the TV in July 2018 thread for more.
Like we said at the top, even in the heat of summer there is a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes here at ResetEra and in the community at large. As we continue to build on our progress, we're open to trying new ways of engaging the community. Towards that end, we're now hosting an experimental Feedback / Community Discussion Weekend in the hope of encouraging a constructive discussion with and between members.
That wraps up the ResetEra July Newsletter! Thanks for being the best community on the internet. See you next month!
