I thought that it was a rather quiet month, as it seemed as though there wasn't that much activity in the past one or two weeks, and Shrine Discussions hasn't been as active compared to the month before. Turns out you were all busy with your shrines, I guess, because wow, look at all those new and revamped shrines!
Major Staff Changes - Please read this topic so you know which pages or topics to visit for information as to who to contact.
Staffing Application - The application form has been stickied and is now indefinitely open. We are currently especially in need of someone who'd like to help us expand Amassment via social media, namely Tumblr. Note that Todd, who is in charge of staffing, is currently busy, so there may be delays in getting back to you!
News Regarding Coins and the Marketplace - Coin distribution is, as of October, halted, and the Marketplace won't be around forever.
Amassment Survey Results 2016, Round Two - We've summarized our general direction and goals for the community in response to member input.
The winner of October's Monthly Spotlight is The Girl's Distracted, a shrine to Aikawa Akane from Mahou Tsukai Tai! Congratulations, Kiel!
