I've set up a GitHub repository for the Deer Tier codebase here. The code could still use some improvements but it's in decent enough shape for sharing now. Anyone who wants to work on the website can go ahead and submit pull requests but please make sure your changes have been approved by the community first. It's probably a good idea to discuss the changes on Discord.

Hello, I'm MrLandmaster's brother! He doesn't have as much time to work on Deer Tier these days so I'll be taking over most of the development work. We started by implementing a new two-level category structure, along with some improvements to the data schema behind the scenes. If you find any bugs please send them to support (at) deertier (dot) com. More improvements coming down the line!
