  • There's no way to initiate contact with a moderator under the tab labeled Contact a Moderator unless you have previously initiated contact under My Towns > Message Moderators
  • Maps:Location coordinates haven't been loaded for groups other than western U.S. and the U.K. If the location coordinates haven't been loaded the group won't show up in a search. Some location coordinates are incorrect.
  • Notices have file descriptions showing instead of file names. This was by design since uploaded file names aren't user friendly.
