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.

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.

http://www.army.mod.uk/newaac/organisat ... anks13.htm
http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/lf/English/1_6_1.asp

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

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.
