I've made a few nice updates to the site. The biggest surprise is, I didn't add any more downloads! XD Some of these are big changes, some of them are smaller. I'll list the important ones. Everything else is just like... fixing typos and stuff. For some reason, Google Chrome's Spell Checker doesn't work on PLH's text fields. >.>;
Firstly, I've been going through the pages getting rid of stuff we didn't need. Ironaically, we're now down to ten pages, which is the normal cap Webs has on free users like me. ^_^; There was nothing useful I could've done with the extra pages anyway, so I decided not to waste the space. The changes I made are here:
- Deleted the Rules page. I copies the rules into a stickied topic on the forums, so they're not lost. I also updated them a bit.
- Deleted the Community page.
- Deleted the Calendar. Its only use was to remind us of PLH's birthday, which I saved into a text file (PLH was made on August 14th, 2010, by the way). Maybe if we start holding more tournaments (which requires more interested members!), I'll bring it back.
- Re-arranged the top bar:
- Removed Calendar and Community
- Added Forum and Members
- Moved the existing selections to fit relavence... or something
- Made a few updates around the site, such as changing up the descriptions of some forum categories, removing the link to the now non-existant Ladder page, and other random stuff.
In somewhat more exciting (?) news, I've re-opened the tournament. In a way, it was never really closed. But anyway, I have a plan for it, now. Anyone who wants to register for it is free to do so. I even have a legit prize, now! You'll be the first member to have themselves featured right up next to the PLH logo, which I will make and upload upon the tourney's completion!
Get full details on the new details at the topic, HERE.
I think that's about it. So now, I have a question for you guys.
I recently became more familiar with Wikia thanks to another project of mine. As such, I've been debating whether or not I should transfer the game information pages over to a Wikia site. I recently upgraded the site to Webs' new SiteBuilder 3, so I'm looking to see if they come out with a new Wiki app first. If they reply to me and say that they aren't or don't have it, I'm going to go ahead and put them up there.
So, the question I have for you is, considering Wikia would be a decent way to host this type of thing, should I delete the Photos and Screenshots and Videos pages? I'm not sure if anyone even gets much use out of them aside from maybe getting the box art or something, which I could easily add to a Wikia page. If I get the O.K. to delete them, the extra pages would be available to me for any future ideas I might have. For instance, I'm thinking about adding an on-site chatroom somewhere. I'll probably be more likely to create an IRC channel, but I'm not too sure on how to do that.
Anyway, let me know what you think in the comments!

Can't say it's a big surprise, but the PLH Grand Opening Tourny has been officially post-poned until further notice.
Anyone who has been keeping up with the site has probably already noticed that I let the start date slip by me. Life has been more hectic than ever for me lately; Not to mention we didn't meet the minimum amount of contestants. I just haven't really had the time for side projects like PLH.
Meanwhile, the people at Tetris Attack.org seem more interested in just doing their own thing. I was hoping they would be a little more enthusiastic about it, but that's okay. It seems they aren't as incredibly into the game as much as they were when they started up. But that's just my observation.
Anyway, just needed to stop by and lay down the news. I will be continuing to work on the site when I have the time and drive to do so. I'm gonna have to put PLH on the back burner for now. Anyway, if registered members want to help out, I believe it's possible for regular members to add photos and videos to their respective sections. Of course, there's also the inactive forums. You could always make a few topics over there and post around a bit to get it started.
If you REALLY wanna help out, you could try making a video of Puzzle League gameplay and slapping the link on at the end and such. YouTube seems to be where it's at for advertising, so if you want to see more activity, that's probably you're best bet if you wanna try it out.
Enjoy what the site has to offer so far,

This piece of crap website won't let me copy/paste from Wordpad. The gist of the message I wanted to send was:
- Today sucked BIG TIME. I am PISSED OFF.
- Forgot to open the tourney thread yesterday due to real life. It's open for registration now.
- No word from TA.org. I'm gonna look for a Contact us page on thier site and ask them to hurry up and accept my forum registration.
EDIT: Turns out the topic was never locked to begin with. Bleh.

I recently checked the site's visitor statistics. A few people have begun to trickle in from websites we had been advertising on! I'm going to keep on making videos on YouTube, and hopefully there are some other places for links to go.
Since we're starting to get visitors, I have made the decision to begin our very first tournament! This tourney will be a simple Elimination Challenge. Here are the full details!:
Name: Puzzle League Heaven Grand Opening Cup
Game: Planet Puzzle League (Nintendo DS)
Type: Elimination Challenge
Date: September 1st - September 30th
Welcome to Puzzle League Heaven's Grand Opening!!! This is a momentous occasion, and so, we are holding our very first Wi-Fi tournament to commemorate it!
Registration begins on September 1st, 2011. Registration continues until September 15th, 2011. Registration will close at 12:00 AM on September 16th. This day will be used to create match line-ups. These pairings will be posted in the tournament's forum topic on this day. At 12:00 AM on September 17th, 2011, matches will begin.
Puzzle League Heaven account is required to participate. Further details to come.
I'll post the tourney's topic soon with full details on how to connect to your partner over Wi-Fi, Time Zone information, and rules. September is a few days away, so I'm going to do my best to spread the word before registration starts!
Meanwhile, I've been working on some other stuff behind the scenes. I'm going to be adding the PLHGOC to the Calendar, as well.
Good luck, everyone!
