Hello there ^^

Out of curiosity more than anything, I was wondering if the copywrite at the bottom of the site is meant to only be up to this year and its adjusted automatically when a new year comes around, or if someones just hasn't gotten around to renewing us for a period in the future.

Tech answer: the year increments in realtime, like it does on basically every site on the Internet that shows a copyright in the footer. Anybody showing a year past the current year in that spot is being silly.

Legal answer: copyrights don't need "renewal" or "registration" as such, they aren't trademarks. As Aelyria is a living breathing work, even assuming copyright duration based on "anonymous author" duration, we'd be covered for 70 years from the publication of a given post.
