Nice! :)
I see there can be different torches in the background, and the mods page has some "banners".

I've improved the email service. In the past, the emails that subscribers received only had links to mod pages. These emails now also mention the name of the person who commented or added a replay, the name of the mod, and a link to a new Email Service page that explains how to unsubscribe.

Also, as explained at the end of this page, mod authors may email a 1280 x 256 pixels JPEG that will then be used as the mod's header image instead of the default carousel slider at the top of the mod's page. This should allow mod authors to give page(s) about their mod(s) a more personal/themed touch, if they want.

Two examples are the new header images of Prince of Wateria and Micro Palace.
The "Time to move." text fits with the theme of the latter, because, as its cutscene text explains, the prince and princess have to move to a smaller palace.

Page URLs have not been changed, so no links were broken in the process.
Really cool design, good work. Can you add my multi games level editor to the list.

Probably not important, but...
I figured out why does IE8 display a certificate error for https://www.popot.org/ .
(This is probably also why Total Pack can't connect to PoPOT on Windows XP. See also this post: viewtopic.php?p=21666#p21666 )

Wireshark shows that Firefox sends a server_name header (SNI) as part of the HTTPS handshake.
IE8 does not send that header, so the server sends back some random certificate.
Now, this header is required if multiple websites share the same IP address: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Name_Indication
This is basically HTTPS's equivalent of HTTP's Host header: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_h ... Name-based

Konqueror on Linux does the same, and probably for the same reason.

That's temporary, the content provider is tinkering with the hardware.

Ah, okay.

It seems that only PHP pages are 503, static files still load: https://www.popot.org/popot.ico
