Design Changelog | Changelog Forum 

Since its creation in late 2017, the Team Falcon network has gone through one name change (Joe’s World was originally the first site), and we’ve also expanded to include partner sites from friends with websites that wanted to work with us.  When we launched, the site was extremely basic.  As time went on, we eventually got ourselves a To-Do List and eventually put it online.  That list grew to over 100 items in a short period of time, and that’s including everything we’ve completed as a reminder of how far we’ve come.  A network crash in 2019 had unfortunately lost all of our progress, and we were forced to continue from where we left off last … without our list.

Everything that’s been completed on our To-Do List (Wishlist) will be found here with when it was implemented.  Other information can also be found at the different Forum links, too.
