I think these are great. There's already a sense of community on UKCS and I think the posters add to it. Looking forward to seeing what happens with them in the future - perhaps notices of forthcoming events and things like that?

I find the positions on dustbowl rather distracting, especially stage 1 where they seem to be at the end of the corridors facing blue. I think i'm probably in the minority although. ;(

This is actually a pretty sweet idea.

Good job Xerxes.

I've stopped in the middle of a game a few times just to have a look at them. And they are quite a good idea

Is there a way to turn these off? Or not have them? They're really really annoying tbh, and I've seen afew people complain about them in the TF2 servers, at LEAST get rid of afew, like just ONE coming out of spawn, not like 9 plastered everywhere.

Possibly remove them for those who already have signed up? Since we're already here you don't need to advertise it

Not everyone registered with the forums regularly checks them, though.

For this reason it is important to keep the posters up, even for registered members, so they can see information regarding upcoming events, for example.

If you spot a particular map that you think has too many, then let an admin know :)

It's sooo annoying and intrusive! It's really putting me off the servers, yes I am aware that UKCS has Facebook, BRAVO!

I think one is too many imo. I don't believe that the servers now have to advertise on their own servers to get people to join the forums! Just a random message in chat will do, tbh, I prefer those tacky server with SourceMod that have "JOIN WWW.COOLCLANNAME.NET" flash up in text!

I think they're great and add to the community spirit, especially with members making their own posters and the SOTW winner being displayed.

It's the same with anything new, you always get a bunch of people who don't like change moaning about it. Remember the amount of whinging that went on when the forums changed? A vociferous few, some of whom left. More than made up for by the hundreds of new members who have since signed up.

I don't think a design change can be the reason why people joined :S I don't see the hundreds of new members, I see people signing up, posting for abit then not at all.

Then systems like this that help build awareness of all aspects of the community (including the forums) are important ;)

Sorry, WAR, I was unaware you had access to our statistical data sets.

We have seen a significant increase in registrations already since release.

That's irrelevant. I could name people who rarely post but have lurked on the forums for years and don't post or rarely post, a high post count doesn't mean you are part of UKCS more. I'm curious to why you alone seem to be riding this issue so hard when it has little impact on game-play. Surely anything that helps UKCS to grow and prosper as a community is a good thing.

The system is still being fine tuned having just been released a week ago...

Perhaps you should give things a chance as you sure do change your tune a lot.

this puts UKCS so far ahead of other communities in its abilty to bring players together, bring news ingame etc. if we have sig of the week winners, major events etc we can now advertise this in game directly to both regulars who may forget or to potential new members.

the posters arent massive and are kept in the format of the game so they arent that distracting. no more so that sprays that people put EVERYWHERE already.
