    - Infos concerning the new team in this thread:

    Hello Community!

    In this post we would like to tell you a few details about our progress.
    As you can see, we are done now with the new login system!
    We also made progress with the ranking, but are not fully done yet.
    The important part about the ranking is that the games that you play now
    are already being recorded in the database.
    In other words: your games count!
    As already mentioned in the article on the front page, this ranking is in beta state.

    We just have to code the website, that actually displays the ranking,
    right now the ranking is in the database (invisible for you).
    We are also working on a profile page for each player.

    Two features of PokerTH do not work yet:
    - the player avatars
    - the spectator tool

    But be assured that we are working on these issues and that you can enjoy them in the future!

    Happy Playing,
    Your PokerTH Team

    everything is a question of organisation.

    It might be a good idea to delete the old serverlist from cache:
