I love that Forum games still contributes to your postcount but IK doesn't. That makes no sense at all.

The new forum is wonderful!
However... there had to have been another way to put in a rank at 1300. The ranks don't mean as much anymore and are easier to get. I don't like it.
But everything else is wonderful!

There is a problem with starting and joining Speed Games... The games drop off before anybody has a chance to join them. Other than that, the upgrades are great.

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.
