    Indeed, it was silly of me.
    And a new thread is going to be noticed more then a single post in an already cluttered thread.

    You can request a mod to change the thread title.

    I agree with you on the new thread per update idea, it takes too long for people to notice the old "catch all" threads. New thread for new news.

    I guess that's why it explains the date being day/month/year instead of month/day/year

    Changed the title.

    Personally I'm not going to mind a new thread per update since updates don't even come weekly (so the forum isn't exactly cluttered), the old one's not a sticky and doesn't have the info in it anyways, and like Snailface said people are going to be looking for topics with the specific version, etc.

    Thanks for the thread title change.
    Hope that clears things up for people.
