That's fine then. I had just looked at the latest image and thought it looked strange being right aligned. Ideally you wouldn't have one block on its own line like that, but to change it you would need to do a single row for all 7 places.


Good Idea! I'll check if it can be done single row.

[quote="Marvaddin"]Beyond the bonuses of the parties being a bit low...[quote]

Yes, bonuses. I would appreciate some feedback regarding them. Any suggestions as to what levels would be appropriate?

I think bump the party bonuses to 7, leave all the others.

I really like the left right divide thing, gives the map something to distinguish it from other maps, allowing for nuances in strategy, don't open another border.

Also change title of map to U.S. Senate, there are other senates in the world. :wink:

It isn't really a huge deal to me but I agree with those that believe the United States spelling of Defense should be used for a U.S. senate map. :roll:

More importantly if you keep the podium the only left to right access it is going to be very hard to hold and I'm not sure if the bonuses reflect that.

What color?

As for the CC Seate Idea youve been quite alone in voicing this opinion. Personally I like it, but I like even more to feel that I'm messing about In the US Senate. (yes, the last two elections left me a wee bit frustrated..)
I hope to see this map become very popular during 2008.

More voices about CC senate, people?

If you will make me senator, lol, well, I hate republicans because Bush is republican (by the way, I hate Bush). And... Clinton government seemed much more reasonable to me (although I dont know how it was internally).

like, Jay could be a republican senator.....etc., etc. of course u'd need permission to use those names.....

Ok, this could be a cynical way to gain favor for this map from people. "Get your name in".
The name Kyle was used in reference to Kyle Broslowski so it was already in the map. No prob to move it (especially since Rev Kyle was one of the first to belive in this map).
Mrvaddin is one of the most active in this forum it seems. His sometimes harsh but wellgrounded criticisms force you to rethink some ideas. I think a blue 'Marv' will soon be seen. :wink:

hmm...Andy. Time to immortalize that name as well?

well, i just thought it would be funny....

there are a lot of conservatives on this site

but, there are a million times more liberals, so, it would be funny to take over Jay's seat, or Kyle's seat, etc., etc.
