Added "-Memoriam Account-" To Jack's and Gem's display names. :(
Advertised some more.

Created a stripe account for users who do not want/like/use paypal to donate via stripe instead.
Created a donorbox pop up in side bar that lets users decide which service and how much to donate with various different currencies. (Can add more on request.)
Figured out, finally, how to display larger avatars so that users can show off their beautiful characters if they want.
Added the ability in chat for members to view member character's profiles via click on name, drop down list
Updated our facebook page with correct URL, new logo and screenshots of forum, homepage and new chat
Added GR to RPGInitiative's directory listing.
Double checked that our links on advertising forums worked and they seem too?
EDITED TO ADD: various performance tweaks. Hopefully, no issues crop up from them.

To Do:
Figure out why the bb code for lists is not working.
