NEW LAYOUT at the directory!: Amassment has received an absolutely beautiful new layout thanks to the talented and hardworking Masao! With this new layout comes a new method of submitting/editing/removing sites, as well as getting yourself listed as a new member if you haven't done so already. (See the Directory Updates forum.) All these awesome changes were put into place to make Amassment an even more member-friendly experience. What a great way to start the year, eh? :D
