Special acknowledgement to major contributor Mark this month.


After spending some time on fixing data issues that had been present too long and working on some new navigation patterns, the plan for the next month is to address the data changes remaining to make team history more flexible to display. Beyond that, more time will be spent on improving navigation and other issues with pages that still have legacy design issues.
