A Whole New System

Over the next couple of months, we will be completely redesigning the system and software we use to run Humble Cookie. For instance, the website will not use WordPress after the update as it uses older technology which is not customized to our needs. Hopefully this will make the overall experience of using the HumbleCookie website an easier and more pleasant one.
