Whatever floats your boat...
I am still seeing some issues with The Ark regarding permissions. It would appear NIng is still buggy since migrating some of there server info. So sorry guys. You may notice that not logging into the Ark may get you a slightly different experience than being logged in. This is not by Syd's design, and I have not altered any permissions or setting from the way Syd set up the Ark. I promise you.
Let me know of any issues that really hinder your ability to share on this site. And as always, complaints can be left on OmegaSquad's page. (Assuming Ning hasn't accidentally removed it.)
That Being said.... please feel free to visit the Ark's new official Complaint Department: COMPLAINTS GO HERE
