WMB is getting a makeover!

Want Midna Back started back in 2008, and a lot has changed since then. We’ve seen a major revision of the site a few years ago thanks to the implementation of WordPress, allowing for easier publishing and navigation, but with this new times focused on creating websites that are mobile-friendly and a bigger focus on social media, we needed to give this page yet another makeover.

The process is happening soon, with the website going into maintenance mode tonight as we make all the necessary changes to the website in the process of the next few days. In the meantime, I want to remind you that the forums will remain accessible for users to participate, and as always you can access the WMB chat (albeit we might push the Mibbit Client to a different page).

Feel free to comment away if you have any concerns about the site’s redesign – if you have any questions, be sure to fire them away. We hope you enjoy the new site as we deploy it this weekend. LB out.
