But, isn't the Forum Games a sub-Forum of the IK?

Have you considered putting the avatars back on the left side so the maps can flow beyond the fixed width the forum width is set at? Other than that, I'm not sure how you could fix it.

That wouldn't work... There are other things that you can do though...

BTW - keep an eye out for the next BOB - it will have a special "Swap Avatars" feature - that does just that!

I really dislike the new rank system, but I guess i just have to get used to it :S
and there's no way I can get an 8 player speed game started. I get the feeling that you are auto-dropped after 5 seconds of inactivity, instead of 5 minutes...
am i the only noticing this? I guess so, because everybody loves the new update..

wouldnt it make sense to still count Ik / forum games posts but put them in brackets after other post count? a lot of people only post in IK or forum games , and i think it would really misrepresent how much people post. I dont really care just seems strange to me.

Talk about issues with the upgrade, I direct you to the Suggestions forum. There you will find numerous Topics discussing such issues.

I feel cheapened by the free promotion... people will always want to play up in rank whatever you call it due to the scoring formula.

And now all the threads in callouts need to be conformed.

You're definitely not the only one. I started a BUG discussion on it in the forum. Please add your complaints so it gets noticed by the moderators. This is a problem.
