    I think that this should be moved out of the coloraze area and into its own thread.
    I have decided to pretty much write trackmill from scratch. the backend has gotten pretty messy and needed a big time refresh, as did the design itself.

    On the 8th I said that It should start being released in about 2 weeks. I had some family stuff going on last weekend so I was set back a 4 days. I also have a big non trackmill related project that I need to get done by the 28th, and thanksgiving is coming up so there may be a few more setbacks. I will keep you guys updated on how far along things are.

    "manage tracks page"
    not started, but it will be simplified and improved

    "create level page"
    not started, but it wont change that much.

    "Gallery page"
    40% complete.

    I do want to point out that in 2 weeks we will START rolling it out. I am not going to flip a switch and convert the entire site, but rather do game by game. my though it to start with izzi because it is a good game, but does not have the thousands of people playing it like coloraze, FR2, FW, and SSS. I will push out izzi and give you guys 4 or so days to find all the bugs. Once that is done I will release the design on another game ever 2 days.

    Can we get some info about the new ratings system?
    And for the create a level page, I suggest you move the level editor in the middle and then have an ad on both sides of the screen.

    with the new rating system you will be required to be logged in and your ratings will be public.
    however, I will still store ips. So people are not tempted to multi account.

    This may decrease the # of people that rate, but my hope is ratings will be more accurate.


    1-3 thumbs down
    4-6 thumbs sideways
    7-10 thumbs up

    it marquees when you mouse over, like "new levels". Shows the last 10 votes. Clicking on the name brings you to a page where you can see how that user rated all levels

    if you have a high score before you submit your vote will count as 2 votes.

    ^ That's my job :( Nah, jk thanks for the help man. Just remember, not all of the top rated maps are the best. Find ones that have sustained the test of time as well. And pro tracks are always safe to use ;)

    I know. I tried not to scratch the surface, but that's what I ended up doing anyway. =/
    I'll search through the tracks and see if I can find some good ones hidden among the numbers of pages :)

    Heres what I've collected. Just try not to get duplicates if possible. Again thanks for the help.

    what about weighted voting?
    and maybe you could just have the three types of thumbs be the rating device, and show a tally of them..

    I feel like the buttons and search bar need a deeper blue. It makes it look more TrackMilly.
    But other than that, looks pretty sexy and uber handy :p

    Will the game previewer (mainly fr2) be adjusted so when you use the mouse wheel to zoom in, it zooms to where the mouse is pointing rather then off to some distant land?
