While there is quite a lot to do, I've started working on this site again, even if its dead it's good practice.
I've been mainly focusing on improving the styling (you should notice some improvements already), code cleanup, and improving the user interface. Before, my front-end skills were not as honed as my backend, but I basically spent over an entire year doing mostly front-end work. You should see some improvements already.
While I need to catchup on github issues, I think the most important thing to focus on is user-interface improvements. I was thinking about how to improve the design for sub information, having it appear as a button on the top is horrible UI, but the issue is I didn't have enough horizontal space on small resolutions. The idea I came up with is a sort of a tab system, with the link to sub information being where the "last online" text used to be.
It's honestly incredible just how much work went into this site, but everything still looks like ASS because almost all the work went into the backend (I also didn't have great design/frontend fundamentals whenever I started this project).
Anyway, I would type more, but I doubt anybody will even read this. lol

Oh, you're the guy who suggested different languages and then helped with the translation to French.
Thanks for that. As of now, while things are being updated, I'm not going to worry too much about keeping the translation text current. Once the ui is stable, it will be easy to translate any new/modified words, and consciously make the ui laguage-adaptable (for example element lengths for words in some languages are way longer, but this can be planned for in advance.
I was updating the translation file a few weeks ago, I really liked some of your translations, I even updated some of the English words to reflect yours.
