Good morning,
Hytale Community and Fanbase!

Today I'm writing to inform you all about a series of changes that we've made to HytaleHub.com, as well as all of our associated Discord Servers. Many of these changes are things which have long been talked about but pushed back against during the previous administration. However, after years of debate, we've decided to do what we believe is in the best long term interests of the Hytale community. We want to ensure that anyone using our sites is able to do so without feeling like they're being sold something, or having ads shoved in their face. We also don't want any user to feel "less significant" than another due to some sort of role hierarchy. HytaleHub.com has been here since December, 2018, and has for a very long time been considered the "go to" forum of the Hytale community. While many other venues exist, such as twitter, reddit, and discord, this is the one of the only sites solely dedicated to Hytale fans.

HytaleHub.com Changes:

The primary changes we've made include:
  • Removal of all ads promoting other sites, even those which are affiliated with the Hytale Hub Network
  • Navigation Bar adjustments to make finding relevant content at HytaleHub.com much easier
  • Removal of all market categories and forum nodes. This will all be migrated to HytaleMarket.gg
  • Implementation of several new backlinks to Hytale.com to make finding the game's website easier
  • Some minor sidebar adjustments
Discord Server Changes:

Since the Hytale staff team uses Twitter as their primary method of sharing new content updates (I.E. - Postcards from Orbis), we want to encourage people within the community to engage with the rest of the Hytale fanbase within that venue as much as we can. Therefore, we've hidden all roles from our Discord server sidebars except for the leading Staff administrative roles and a new "Verified" role. This "Verified" role can be achieved by following our official account on Twitter, @Hytale_Hub



Prior to this adjustment, the sidebar within our Discord servers was fillen with dozens of very specialized roles which we feel overly complicated our servers, and overwhelmed users so much that they felt lost/confused. Users with existing roles will still keep these roles, and going forward, we will certainly continue to have competition-style roles. However, the only two displayable role options within our server's sidebars will be the standard role, and the new "Verified" role.

That's all for today guys. We hope that you find these new changes agreeable. Please let us know in the comments below if you have any concerns, or suggestions regarding what we can do going forward to be a site worthy of such an amazing community. :)

How about making it so every post does not have to be approved manually. That would be nice :)
