Apparently some straw broke the camels back this year. While we certainly crawled from a deep underground to a more shallow soil, I did not expect us filthy casuals to rub elbows with actual supported formats. But now it appears that we are a thing in the eyes of The Grander Community. This brings great responsibility. I think we might need to
