I personally actually don't like the colors either :lol: :lol:

But I think they will grow on me. I am just happy they extended the medal caps for the long term players

The Ads shouldn't be there for New Recruits, based on lostatlimbo's comments.

Poison isn't cheap, it was probably a premium user who poisoned him.

smart updates which will probably increase premium members. will the medal cap not be lifted for general achievement and general contribution medals? and the ads aren't annoying at all, just ignore them!

That's a great point. Until you play/finish your 4 or 10 games or something I think the site should remain add-free.


Step 1: Extend "news recruit status" to 25 games to get used to site features, spoils, large variety of maps.

Step 2: No ads until you leave NR status

No one is particularly close to 30 on those medals. Iron Maid has 19 GA, and Dako has 20 GC. I'm sure once we get into a position where it needs to be raised, it can.

I quite agree. A smart move I'm sure. Make the site most inviting to NR's. Although there should be a warning stating that once you've left your NR status, there will be (hopefully) non-invasive advertising for those that maintain a free membership.

This will happen when the new medals go live!

As for the claim of them being text ads:
When reading our programmer's synopsis, I misread his statement as textual ads when he had typed contextual ads. Editing the OP now.

I'll look at some of the other suggestions in this thread as well (such as making New Recruits not have ads). I'll see what boss man has to say about it :)
