qwert

i think that the proposed staff sergeant symbol, in particular, clashes badly with everything else because the sergeant's stripes are upside-down! instead of having four different kinds of sergeant, i suggest that sergeant, sergeant 1st class, warrant officer and chief warrant officer are better names for the senior non-commissioned officers.

warrant officer can be a gold or silver crown (smaller than the one for colonel and without the red and blue inserts), while chief warrant officer can be a small gold or silver crown surrounded by a wreath of leaves.

we can't have lieutenant colonel because the proposed symbol is almost identical to the one for lieutenant.

[quote="lackattack"][quote="daydream"]1. somehow the pages are messed. i cant explain that much better, but if you click around on the [1][2][3]...[x-1][x] for a while you will notice what i mean.[/quote]

Fixed :)

[quote="daydream"]2. i added a friend to friends, and a few minutes later he told me he couldnt join because supposedly he was on my foes list. i checked and he wasnt, i took him off my friendlist again and suddenly he could join. so i think thats not doing what its meant to be doing ;)[/quote]

Well these is for British army,but if you notice USA dont have rank of Field Marshall,and also rank icons is not same like real Army rank symbols,and i just give examle,and creator of ranks can create some new symbol to implement in Ranking table.

The forum upgrade is much appreciated. However, is there a glitch with the speed games. I've tried to create some 1v1 speed games and as soon as I click my "My Games" link, the game disappears from my "Waiting Players" list and the game disappears completely. Any guidance would be appreciated

Speed games are definitely screwed up. Every multi-player one I've joined has disappeared in minutes. And I can't create one. As soon as I click "Awaiting players" to refresh, it's gone.

[quote="lackattack"]
* Ignore List is now merged with foes, so you can hide someone's nasty game chat AND forum posts by clicking "add as foe" on their profile. We've pre-loaded everyone's foes with any players on their old Ignore List. Right now foes does not allow comments but we are actively working on providing that feature (and pre-loading your old Ignore List comments too).
[/quote]

ok. two things:

1. Why can't we use BBCode any more? none of the [quote], [b], etc. brackets work...

EDIT: weird... quotes seem to work in other threads.... why not in here?

2. It says that foes list blocks both games and FORUM POSTS. What if I want to block someone from my games, but I still want to be able to talk to them on the forums?

Feedback for lackattack....IN the map foundry, the central column where the maps are displayed does not enlarge itself to anything greater than the column size within the page structure, therefore the large maps even a trifling 700px wide run under the avatar and username column, and one can't see the entire large map, the right side of the large map is sliced-off from display. :-(

You can't post/edit any post with an image bigger than 728 (?) pixels wide, either (thats what it says when I try to post there).
Which means it won't let me edit my first post in my map thread without removing every one of the images (or making them URLs instead) and no one can put up updates without A. shrinking the map below the size limit or B. posting all images as URL links....

It kinda sucks...

yep. thats fixed also.
now you only roll triple 6s and the defender only rolls 1s.
problem solved.

[smileys dont work in this thread, so insert a :roll: smiley here with your imagination please...]


I'm getting more used to the forums, and aside from the problems that have already been mentioned (and hopefully will be fixed) I think I will like this new setup a lot more.
