    Yeah the website is much better for me too. Great work.

    I'm still puzzled with the guild search function. You can't seem to search for guild abbreviations or "parts" of the guild name. You have to search for the exact string, or at least the beginning few letters of the exact string.

    Right now the search function is a very rudimentary check vs the guild name. As I work on the guild search more I will make sure it does a better check of guild name and abbrv.

    I just finished added keyword search functions to the compendium articles so I can tag them with specific keywords to make sure our players get high quality results for common search terms.
