    Default Nice Update!

    Octoclops Approves!

    I love the direction this has taken, and I can't fault anything, great choice.

    The only thing I can think of that I'd like to see added is a "New Forum posts" link on the front page instead of needing to head into the forum itself before seeing it (I probably use that link more than any other).

    Haven't noticed any problems yet.

    I just hit "What's New" and it takes me to the forum automatically and shows me the new posts.

    Pretty good. But...

    Perhaps it would be good if
    Code:
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/
    defaulted to
    Code:
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/forum.php
    .

    We are actually working on getting more content delivered to the front page. More feature maps, challenge announcements/winners, polls, as well as partner links, news, gallery hightlights, etc. I admit it is kind of bare right now, but we plan to fill it up, as soon as we can hire (ok, cajole) some decent help!

    I think what su_liam means is not that www.cartographersguild.com should go directly to the forum, but that forum.cartographersguild.com should

    Dammit its just lost my post....

    Anyway, I was saying some fluff but ill shorten it now to:

    Can we have a link to the most recent posts instead of the Whats new posts. The most recent one can be obtained if you "mark forum as read" followed by the "Whats New" button again. It comes up with a message box saying that nothing is new but would you like to see the most recent posts. Can we add that link to the forum tools links ?

    I'll post this quick in case it loses it again !

    I can see about adding it as a menu option.

    And now we're talking about adding things ... On each profile page there is an about me tab. I would like to have the option of a text field where you could actually write some stuff about who you are and perhaps link to things you've done so you can present your works in a nice way.
