You will soon start to see UKCS posters appearing in game on CSS, TF2 and DoD. The contents of the posters will vary over time so we can advertise to players special events, tips, news and help players get the most out of UKCS. We will be looking to the ARTy members of UKCS to help design posters and the reward will be to have them seen by literally thousands of people. Graphic designs like "sig of the week", can also be turned in to posters where the winning entries will soon be able to be seen by thousands, not just forum users.
We've developed a powerful poster management system that allows us to control which posters appear on what games or even specific servers if we want. This means we can target the right messages to the right player groups. The more posters we have the more variety you'll see around the map. Currently we only have a few different types but we will soon have more variety.
This is currently live on TF2 and DoD, and will soon be rolled out to CSS.

Below is an example poster currently in use. The poster was created by Jerry Sentimento who did an excellent job of giving it an authentic poster look.
