    BattleForums now has a Googlemap page!

    [​IMG]

    Be sure to check out the 'Googlemap' link located in the navbar on every page to update your location information!

    I'm also pleased to note we've managed to get the extended options viewable again to members when posting new replies in 'Advanced Mode' and new threads.

    If you find you're experiencing problems with anything on the forums, you're always welcome to voice your concerns in our 'Forum Support' section, or you can contact an Administrator. :)

    The frappr thing wasn't working well, as it used zip codes, and just said your location was in the middle of that zip code. I like this more, plus, it is more official.

    I'm having a hard time making those images into a legend at the bottom. Right now is the default layout, however the templates are somehow read-only. Something I'm going to play around with tomorrow on the StarCraft: Ghost skin.

    If you hover over them it'll show red are for Moderators/Admins, yellow is for members. I also suspect it only shows up red for ONLY Admins and Moderators (Not global mods, staff members) as that's another default setting the hack is being very picky about. I should have that taken care of by tomorrow if things go smoothly.

    I think you should type the name of your country, Manuel. Otherwise people will think that Mexico is now in Spain:D
