Welcome to the ResetEra June 2018 Newsletter. That was quite the month, wasn't it? Our very first E3 has come and gone, and summer is officially here!
Some of you have been asking about our stats during E3, and we're here to deliver, courtesy of our wonderful tech team! Breaking it down, here's the total number of posts and threads created by day:
June 09, 2018: 45,386 posts, 172 threads June 10, 2018: 53,506 posts, 176 threads June 11, 2018: 76,623 posts, 255 threads June 12, 2018: 87,566 posts, 291 threads June 13, 2018: 51,745 posts, 239 threads June 14, 2018: 46,438 posts, 231 threads
A big thank you and hearty congratulations to everyone in the community for making our first E3 such a tremendous success. You guys are the best!
We would like to highlight in particular the efforts of ratrosaw and the rest of our tech team in keeping the site up and functional during E3. These guys are unsung heroes who labored tirelessly behind the scenes before and during the event, making adjustments on the fly so that each day the servers ran a little smoother. Not only did they overcome a tremendous challenge, but thanks to this experience we will be even better prepared to handle the next big event.
For anyone who might be curious about such things, you can read about the work that went into our server preparations here in greater depth.
Ongoing GiftBot Development
Now that we can safely take our focus off of E3, we hope to put out new updates to GiftBot in the near future. It has come to our attention that some lurkers have unfortunately been exploiting GiftBot in ways that go against the spirit of what it's all about. Our immediate priority will be addressing this by implementing limits to how often you can win and by taking action against clear abusers.
Although technically a July achievement, we want to give a warm shout out to ElephantShell of NHL Era who today made our ten millionth post here on ResetEra. This is an extraordinary landmark and we never imagined it'd be reached so soon. Here's to the next ten million!
Official ResetEra PS4 Dynamic Theme Development
In response to high demand, the ever talented m0dus has launched a community driven project to develop a premium quality ResetEra dynamic theme for PS4. We have given this effort our official blessing. Throughout this process m0dus will be soliciting feedback from the community and may even live stream some of the weekend coding sessions! Once completed, the theme will be made available for free.

As a reminder, Video Game Community Spotlights were shortened this past month due to E3.
June was Pride Month, and in recognition we'd like to highlight a few threads that celebrated the occasion!
Queer? Here? Used To It? It's Pride Month! is a celebration of all things Pride Month.
There's also the wonderful Pride-ify Your Avatar! thread for those who want to add a little rainbow love to their avatars.
And of course we'd be remiss to not highlight our LGBTQ community here on ResetEra in the LGBTQera |ERA1| (We're Queer) thread.
A successful E3 is both a milestone and a coming of age for ResetEra, but as far as we've come already, we're not content to stop here. There are big plans already in motion for even more improvements to the site, and we're looking forward to sharing more about that in the months ahead!
