I think that would be a good idea. The wow factor (to quote gimil - hehe wow factor) of seeing ALL the maps at once is great. It shows clearly how much community involvement there is in the site, and it as good an advertisement as you could possibly get for the site.

neat advancment, I think i personally would still have liked to see them separated into the 3 groups (easy, intermediate, difficult) as was dicussed at some point in the past, but that may be more difficult then it sounds lol just my thought

A browse all button is all you are missing I think, Lack. Otherwise, excellent improvement.

I like the old way better. I much prefer scrolling the page with all the maps laid out. I hope we are given an option in control panel to either use this new way or use the original way.

Time to retire this much loved sig of mine with a new clan.

I must say i like this ALOT more it makes tournament organizing a ton easier

Before - I would have to make a round with say 10 different maps id have to scroll up and down the list trying to find the correct map, sometimes glossing over it
Now - I simply go to the list and find the correct name, a ton easier on me :lol:

I'm not sure that Lack is all that keen on allowing people to switch back and forth. He hasn't ever given that option before except for a brief transition period with the site moving to AJAX.

ok yes this is a lot more organized but the old way was a lot better to me... i liked to beable to just go down and look at the maps.. plus when i first joined the site thats what really got me was seeing all the variety of maps the site had to offer.. i really hope this gets discussed some more and maybe have a poll to see what the majority of the people on the site want

This is a horrible change. I like to be able to look for an interesting map, click on it for full size image and decide if i want to play it. This will most likely stop people from trying new maps. They will stick to the ones they know the name of. Also new visitors have no (easy) way of knowing what the maps look like. Bad decision, imho.

you might want to add a small thing that says "hold [ctrl] to select multiple maps".
That just make it easier for people that don't know.

I don't like this new scroll screen......
what happens when you are a visual person and remember things by how they look then you have to scroll through all of them to find the one you want.

it was a good idea but it was not necessary to put it in because it hinders as much as it helps
