A note on #240

The UID check prevents the use of multiple accounts on the same machine. This was done to reduce smurfing. The check existed back in time but has been disabled for a while – which caused The┬áRise of the Smurfs.

This check has been enabled again. As a result, every account which was used on the same system as another account, needs to be linked to steam in order to log in. Please contact an admin on the forums if you need an exception to this rule (but you must have strong arguments).

A note on #245

In future, it will be possible to inform all players about server updates/restarts.
