Check out our new support desk!

We had some complaints about the current support system.
Existing tickets cannot be viewed so nobody knew when a bug was already reported or not.
Now we have a complete new support system! You can report bugs and also view the titles of the existing bugs!
Also it is possible to mail bugs to support@buddystream.net, you then will get a new ticket assigned.

Please check out the new system, we tried to fill some bugs from the old system but it is possible we forgot some bugs.
Feel free to report new bugs.
