New Update on the Forum Ranks:


Several Rank Insignias were updated with a 165 x ___ pixel resolution, this is due to the fact that some rank images were horizontally unscaled (making the images pop out of the user window and interfering with the same user's post). On the other hand, some ranks got enhanced and higher resolution images (to make them look more crisp).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Special Rank Modifications


General: Changed the previous unscaled 206px 48px insignia with a stable 164px 38px one.

Previous Version:



New Version:



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Standard Rank Modifications


Captain: Increased the older (150px 140px) image with a slightly larger and more higher resolution enhanced version (165px 154px).

Previous Version:



New Version:



--------------------------------------------------------


Major: Increased the older (100px 105px) image with a larger and more higher res version (165px 173px).

Previous Version:

Lieutenant Colonel: Increased the older (100px 105px) image with a larger and more higher res version (165px 173px).

In addition to the changes on the graphical interface, we have updated the number of minimum posts necessary to achieve the highest ranks:


Lieutenant Colonel - 1000 Posts
Colonel - 1250 Posts
Brigadier General - 1500 Posts
Major General - 2000 Posts
Lieutenant General - 2500 Posts

A brand new major Forum Section was just created:



This section is fully dedicated to serve as:


1. TAOW Units "Showroom" ("Formal Presentation", Detailed Information & Images);

2. Discussion Forum (each vehicle haves it's own "Topic" with an integral mini forum, the very first post will be the "Main One" and will show the specific unit).


NOTES:
Please Note that this 'The Art of War Units' forum was just created so it'll be constantly updated with new content as it is presented, at this exact moment, the already released vehicles and units are being included, that'll take it's time as well.

A new forum section "Older Polls" was created to be the home of the polls which are no longer running as to avoid confusion with other possible running polls (at the moment there are none).

You can check this new section here:

I'm afraid that numerous The Art of War-related images are not showing up correctly at the moment, this issue will be addressed as soon as possible and all replacements will be separately reuploaded Thumbs Up!
