Dreamhacks: An apology, and a question: What do you find difficult on a Dreamhack?

I have a bit of an apology to make.

I haven't been doing a lot lately, and I'm keenly aware of that. I could use this space to find a bunch of excuses about why this is the case, but I'm not going to do that. I'm just going to say that I apologise, and that I'm going to try to make things better. Starting now. (Actually, starting yesterday.)

Because I haven't been keeping in touch, I know I haven't been very responsive to questions and comments. I want to change this, too. As such, I want to do a redo of a previous post that I made a few years ago: What do you find difficult on a Dreamhack? I want to try to help people and fix any issues they might be having.

Also, if you have any questions or comments about the Dreamhack service in general, please do leave a comment, or send me a PM! A comment would be preferable, but I'll be glad to respond and/or help if needed regardless.

I've just updated my DH for the first time in a long while and I got this message:

What should have I done?
