Some of the tools with multiple pages have been condensed into one page - Artifacts-Search.asp and Artifacts-Results.asp are now both part of Artifacts.asp, for example. The nav links on the left are fixed, as (I think) are the links to those pages from elsewhere on the site. If you go to the old pages you'll just get redirected to the new, so no harm, but if you have any bookmarks to the following pages, or have a link on a site somewhere, it should probably be changed. The old pages affected (and that you might have linked) are:

Edit: Some more!
All pages in the /skills/ directory - armor, weapons, combat, tradeskills, magic, and skills.asp
All pages in the /attributes/ directory - attributes.asp, strength.asp, dexterity.asp... well, you get the idea.
Also on these new pages, all the text except for the nav links on the left are sizable via the zoom feature in your browser (previously only Firefox could resize all of the text, and it still does resize the nav bar). This may mean the default text size is somewhat larger or smaller depending on your browser and version...

More small news for you today:
Discuss this news! (12)
The article showing Yuen Lee's class pictures is now spread out by realm, so you don't have to load 40 or so pictures as soon as you view the article.
My weaponspeed calculator, formerly sitting with its own little link over there on the nav bar, is now an Article and can be found at http://www.classesofcamelot.com/Articles.asp?id=26.
The navigation on the articles is a little less blatant (there isn't one on top anymore, only the bottom of the page) and hopefully somewhat more useful - there are "Go to page" links for articles with 3 pages or more.

Just a couple of the many changes that'll be coming over the next week or two:
Discuss this news! (41)
The Articles page is just sort of general purpose - right now it has fan art and a couple editorial-ish pieces I've written, but soon some other miscellaneous pages will get stuck in there as well.
Speaking of Fan Art, a set of stories called 'Above All Else' is making its debut on CoC over in the Articles section. It's well written and, although it's also the size of a small novel, it's worth the read.
The other new thing today will hopefully increase the number of user submissions we get... it's the comment page. Nothing fancy about it, it's just a text box for you to enter a comment and a few options on the category. Comments can be just about anything you want - a suggestion for the site, correction of some wrong info, fan mail, hate mail, dirty limericks - whatever you want. If you send in a comment, I will see it as soon as I come to the site, so it's the best way to get my attention. Of course you can still email me if you feel like it, but with the comment page you needn't leave the warm and fuzzy confines of CoC.
Oh... and the patch notes listing is up to date for patch 1.76A.

Mythic announced the new server ruleset - dubbed the "Alternative Rules" server type, its main differences will be:
Trials of Atlantis: ToA zones will not be available, nor will Artifacts or Master Levels. You will be able to play ToA races, however.
Mythic plans to open two servers of this type, named Lamorak and Gareth; there will be a sneak preview on July 12 for those with accounts open before July 1, and the servers will open to all on July 14. Both servers will have normal naming policies (neither will be RP).
Ranged Buffs: All concentration buffs will have a range limit of 5000 units, and will be available only to the buffer and his groupmates. Anyone outside of the group cannot receive concentration buffs.
/level 20: This feature will not be available on this server type.

Patch 1.76C is on Pendragon now, featuring more guild systems:
Discuss this news! (35)
- Guild RvR Missions, which provide bonuses to the entire guild when completed.
- A GUI with tabs to show you recent news (somewhat like an automated version of the Scroll of Valor), a sortable list of all guild members both offline and off, and a sortable list of alliance members, online and off. The GUI also has buttons for some of the guild /commands.
- The Guild Dues system (again?).
- Guild Banners which provide AE buffs when summoned and will be able to be captured and turned into housing trophies.
