Advertising is great, but surely you want to at least bring the look of the game in to the 20th century before doing another big compaign?

Your advertising a game that has not changed in any way to bring in the people who have played it before and left. So why keep doing somrthing that does not hold players.

I say this from my point of view too, the game has nothing to make me want to play apart from friends. Though I can chat to them and not play.
The truth is there, just don't look blindly

Requests for bids is going out this week on new graphics packages and interfaces (Home page, Play Game, CS, Local). Might also look into custom css for wiki, forum.

This application does not yet support secure browsing (HTTPS).

That needs changing

Yea, I saw that too earlier, in honesty the app is in order to allow logging in via FB, accessing SMR via FB isn't so great (frankly it looks even worse than normal SMR :P ).

It's probably not that easy to fix because it will likely require a genuine certificate.

Hmm Certificates arnt that bad, think i paid around $60/year for mine

Though do we want to enable playing SMR via facebook?

Because if so we could always look into a new template designed specifically for facebook (probably slightly scaled down from regular)
