Just like to say welcome back to GF! Hope you enjoy your time here again. If you have any questions feel free to ask anyone. They'll be more than happy to help out.
Anyways, Most of the important things have been mentioned that have happened except for a fairly new feature that has been implemented into our version called "Sprite Island". There is Sprite Island Guide
about how to get it. As others have mentioned about the server merge and the removal on the Sprite Protection System(bot), the economy has gone bonkers on Quill where as Ponchee's economy is heaps more efficient and better at this point of time. Hopefully it will stabilize some time soon.
Along with your account issues, I wish you all the best in getting them back and happy gaming! :D See you in-game hopefully.
