In terms of replays, and stuff. Do you want the ability to upload like on vB? Or perhaps we could set up an uploader on the site, and you could link to it from here.

Other ideas also welcome.

uploading here would be easier, but i think there should be a subsession for the replays, one for strategy, one for clans, and a misc one

Best way would be to upload them to their own section and, similarly to the news system, have a forum comments section for the replays too. Would also be good to have a sysnopsis of the replay posted in the replay comments section. Browsing the comments on the forums gives a brief outline of the replay, but a link to the main replay info page where a more detailed description and a thumbnail may be. I dunno, i'll quit rambling now Tongue

I like that idea more than having them in the actual forum. They are files after all, not forum threads.

Yeah. Having them exist in the current files database with their own comments thread automatically being generated sounds like the best idea. Similar to the maps at the moment.

Maybe you culd zip up the replay and post it as a zip file then play it out.

also make sure that there are instructions, most people don;t know how to put work replays properly
