    Because it seems to be all messed up, but i don't know how to fix it :D

    • Hi there! I will edit it to fix it up for you.

    • Thank you!


      I don't know how it ended up being like that, because in my edit settings it looked all normal, so i couldn't fix it.


      I'll check out the Guide, when it comes out :-)
