Suggestion MOTD should be updated.

    The last thread I found about it was from 2011, and it could use a bit of an update. Attached is what the current MOTD looks like. As well as the MOTD from DOGZ GG, and a possible updated MOTD. Personally I think the rules could be displayed in the MOTD. Yeah, I think most times players who break some rules are just unfamiliar with what the rules are, and for players to look at the MOTD they still have to click the button and look on 2 separate pages for the ZM rules and the global rules. I think just displaying them may at least help in some cases, or possibly prevent some players from breaking the rules. While the current one does fill its purpose to a degree, I think the majority of the negative space could fill in some information.

    Heres is DOGZ GG MOTD.

          That negative space is only visible because your resolution is larger than 1920x1080. It exists so the MOTD works well on most resolutions. If the resolution is too low everything gets jumbled (see screenshots below).

          The only way we could utilize the negative space seen at 1440p+ and make the MOTD look good at lower and larger resolutions is if we implement media queries - something that wasn't supported a few years ago - to show/hide/change things based on resolution size. At that rate it would make more sense to redo the MOTD's entirely, something I hope to do sooner than later.

          Thanks for taking the time to suggest this btw. Appreciate the effort and input.

            Anytime! I didn't know that it scaled to resolution, that makes sense though.
