I have a question:

After maps come off BETA (as you said, about 2 weeks), do they get a "New!" thing on or does it become a normal map thumbnail?

After the Beta Stage, they'll get the "New!" thumbnail. :)

If beta version can be changed during the test period, you should maybe put a version number next to the beta stamp on the maps. So each will know when it has been updated.

Perhaps at a later date such version numbers may happen, but for now we'll just keep things relatively simple and see how that goes.

This is a great idea. Is it possible to set up a feedback link from each game into the relevant forum section for bug reports etc? Saves having to navigate through the forum structure, and might mean that bugs are cleared up more quickly.

Currently, the maps thread is used (found under the stickies in Final Forge), This has been proposed (along with having a link to tourney threads in Tournament Games)

This should probabally go in Suggs and Bugs anyway (the suggestion, not the announcement)
