New Session Manager

A new session manager went online today for adding and managing your sessions. After creating an account it allows you to add, edit and delete Multiplayer sessions. Sessions are still automatically removed 12 hours after they start. Session listings also now contain a link to a forum thread for discussions, which automatically deleted 2 weeks after they are started just to clear out old sessions.
