Special acknowledgement to major contributor Mark, and Joseph this month.
With much of the immediate needs to address navigation and other issues corrected, attention will shift to bigger issues like continuing the schema changes needed for teams and leagues to allow them to be displayed and navigate as visitors intend. Some focus will also be needed on infrastructure. This may result in a lack of visible updates except data until complete.
