  Site Programming Changes
Our Campaigns is a work in progress. Some bugs still exist, and features are continuously being added.

On the left is a list of changes that have been completed and the dates they were completed on, newest first, since this feature was added (2/23/2005). On the right is a list of changes I will try to work on when I have time. You may add to this list once you are a member, but I reserve the right to delete or modify your suggestion.
