    DP 91 got a reaction from BarcaKes1 in Serie A Rating Predictions   
    Badelj to 90 was pretty hilarious but on the back of what from the Ligue 1 reviews seemed to be generous upgrades I thought it wouldn't be all to bad until this morning when as mentioned Bernardeschi still hasn't changed but more so Elseid Hysaj still only got a +1 to 89 which he should have got last time around anyway. 
    Over 13,500 minutes for Hysaj in the past 5 Serie A seasons where he has consistently been one of the best RBs in the division. A great Euros where fullbacks across the tournament tended to stand out anyway. 
    In the last 5 seasons in France, Ligue 1, Djibril Sidibie has recorded 8500 minutes. So that's 5000 less minutes than Hysaj in what is in all honesty a less competitive league to Serie A, he has had one season at Monaco, the other 4 at Lille, Hysaj is now in a 2nd season at Napoli who last year finished 2nd & this year will again finish in the top 3 alike to Monaco. 
    Elseid has 26 caps for Albania, yes a less competitive nation than France but that is not his problem & since he has played for Albania they have collectively gone to reach new heights as a national team. Sidibe capped 6 times for France now, didn't even go to the Euros in the summer. 
    Overall what does this add up to? Apparently Sidibe is a +3 & 90 rated player but Hysaj gets a consecutive harsh +1 & is now an 89 rated player. The consistency in rating changes is quite the source of laughs sometimes.

    DP 91 got a reaction from Tochukwu69 in Transfer Offer Responses   
    With the introduction of the new UI there has been a bit of a scale back in responses to transfer negotiations with for whatever reason some of the previous responses being removed. I'm sure it might have been suggested before but I believe that the personal response option is very much needed, especially within custom game worlds in order to enable more social interaction & also clear ideas on the potential of transfers being arranged / agreed.
     
    I am one who believes that the option to 'blank reject' transfer offers is simply infuriating & offers absolutely nothing to the transfer side of the game. The club bidding on a player receives no information in regards to the likelihood of a transfer being agreed whether they are available or not & additionally does not know if they were close to making an acceptable offer & so on.
     
    In the past I have seen for certain suggestions here to be able to, in the case of a part exchange offer, select which or both of the offered players are not good enough or even would be good enough (vice-versa) which was an improvement but I would like for the system to be improved more than this.
     
    A simple yet effective idea is to allow a text box for users to comment on why they are negotiating or rejecting an offer for a player. 
     
    I understand that in standard game worlds the downsides are that there is numerous reasons why it might not work; 
     
    Language Barriers Explicit Messages Simply Forcing Managers to Respond Whatever additional reasons I understand why there are negative points to it however I would argue there are plenty of reasons why those negatives are actually positives. Language barriers mean managers who are that keen to try & secure a transfer deal will go out of their way to use something such as google translate or whatever methods there may be to translate the message. Explicit messages, I'm sure SM can simply ban explicit words, furthermore if a manager resorts to using this text box to send explicit messages they are allowing SM to see that the manager is not using the function correctly or appropriately & is perhaps not the right type of individual you want playing your game. Forcing managers to respond in this way makes things social & interactive, positive things, the time it takes to respond is minor & debatably allows managers to come to a conclusion much quicker than current methods which can lead to further unwanted bids or unwanted players being offers, in turn no further offers being made when they had wanted negotiations to continue.
     
    Positives I believe there are many;
     
    Information - Which players you don't like, a cash offer you don't want, specific players you like, you will not sell the player & so forth. Social Interaction Speed of Negotiations On the whole I believe the ability to simply say what it is you want or do not want is a huge positive.
     
    An example offer;
     
    Manchester United offer £10m + Phil Jones to Manchester City for Raheem Sterling.
     
    Simple negotiation from Manchester City - £0m + Matteo Darmian for Raheem Sterling & the text message - I do not need cash & I'm not a fan of Phil Jones, I like Darmian however. 
     
    Basic stuff but instantly the manager now knows that cash is not necessary, often the case in most game worlds, Phil Jones is not wanted & therefore wouldn't be offered further.
     
    Manchester United reject the offer with the text message - Sorry not looking to allow Darmian to leave as he's my only RB, are there any others in the squad you like?
     
    This would end the transfer bids but it has opened up a medium for negotiating a deal. Manchester City if really interested in a deal now potentially feel an obligation to message the manager further or await a new bid & if the Manchester United manager is keen to make the signing they'll make a new offer. 
     
    As mentioned this is perhaps something that could be trialled in custom worlds first. Custom worlds are often managed & are competed between managers who know one another or are social whereas the majority of standard worlds have very little social interaction. Debatably they need it more however of course I believe there's more chance of the system being taken advantage of. Finally I also believe the system if put into place with a character limit to ensure some kind of informative response is made could contribute to being able to detect multiple/dup/cheat accounts in various ways.

    DP 91 got a reaction from Sir Rahul in Custom Game Worlds - New Advanced Rules & Features   
    Managerial Stipulations - The ability to tie in sackings to specific positions on each club. Example; Barcelona in Division 1 (20 teams). Should the manager in charge finish the season below 10th position in Division 1 they would be sacked. The ability to tie in specifics to clubs based upon the owners preferences for seeing certain level of clubs achieve specific standards is something I believe is very much needed in forward thinking custom game worlds. We are currently trialling 'Self-Imposed Managerial Stipulations' in Top 100 where managers choose their own criteria for the difference between success & failures in the season in which the idea is that they would resign if they did not meet the criteria they set themselves. This would be a very fair & realistic ability to apply within your custom game worlds. It would likely only be used in social & well managed game worlds however on the other hand if you create your own custom world and made entry public for it but with stipulations tied to every club it would possibly encourage managers to look at squads & assess if they felt they could achieve that level of criteria with whatever was available to them & therefore avoid the sack & keep their job. If you want to read more on the 'trial' Top 100 is having - http://smtop100.blogspot.co.uk/p/managerial-stipulations.html

    Elseid Hysaj gets a +1? Last season for Empoli he completed a 3200 minute campaign where the only better performer for the season was Rugani. Hysaj moves to Napoli & Rugani back to Juve. This season Hysaj completed 3600 minutes for Napoli in a title challenging campaign & has been outstandingly consistent, possibly only being outdone in that sense by the likes of Higuain whose consistency has been vital & has seen him break that long standing Serie A goals in a season record. Hysaj has missed 1 game which was due to a yellow card suspension, the game was against Lazio. This is almost an insult to the lad whom has been fantastic for 2 seasons running now, an 89 may have been slightly harsh & here we are with a +1 to 88 rating.
     
    Rugani has today also received a +1 for his 1300 minutes this season where he's obtained those minutes due to covering injuries at Juve to the likes of Chiellini. Until today I didn't feel the need to comment on the current rating changes taking place even though I have felt the French rating changes were below par & the last few days have additionally be hilarious at times. Somehow Balotelli having played 800 minutes this whole campaign in which he scored a total of 1 Serie A goal & also 1 assist received a -1 for it, he's been disruptive to boot & Milan have yet again been terrible quite frankly, their whole squad received sub-par rating changes by basically a whole rating in most cases. It's as if SM believe Milan & furthermore Inter are still big clubs that are title challenging, Milan aren't even close to being solid Europa League candidates currently whilst Inter have barely won a game this season by more than 1 goal & have been quite awful away from home, they've finished 24 points behind top yet Murillo as mentioned above gets a 90?
    On personal performances over this season he has not been to a 90 standard, when Manolas got his 90 he was fantastic, Murillo has not been to that same level, furthermore Wesley Hoedt has been a real standout centre back in Serie A this season, with some fantastic performances yet he got a +2 to 86 yet in comparison to Jeison Murillo on an individual basis there wasn't much in it bar more minutes completed by Murillo. 
     
    Why did Armando Izzo at Genoa not get a +1/+2? 
     
    Higuain has scored 36 in 35 games. He's broken a single season goal scoring record which has stood for near on a decade I believe, he is one of the worlds now very low total of 'pure strikers'. Additionally a couple in the Europa league & across the board a few assists. Some how this didn't warrant a +1? Sorry, are you sure?
     
    Here's something more. Plenty of pundits & people in the know within Serie A football believe that if Napoli had beaten Juve recently in their 2nd Serie A encounter they would have gone on to win the Scudetto this season that's how good they were. If you ask me, the reflection in ratings of some of the players mentioned for their contributions to that belief from top pundits in Italy this season is quite embarrassing in some cases. Jorginho, Allan & Koulibaly got +1 ratings, why didn't Ghoulam?
     
    Elseid Hysaj getting a +1 to 88 however, the same as Sime Vrsaljko received yesterday is the biggest insult. Whomever is making these Serie A changes has clearly not looked at statistics let alone actual Serie A football this season.

    On personal performances over this season he has not been to a 90 standard, when Manolas got his 90 he was fantastic, Murillo has not been to that same level, furthermore Wesley Hoedt has been a real standout centre back in Serie A this season, with some fantastic performances yet he got a +2 to 86 yet in comparison to Jeison Murillo on an individual basis there wasn't much in it bar more minutes completed by Murillo. 
     
    Why did Armando Izzo at Genoa not get a +1/+2? 
     
    Higuain has scored 36 in 35 games. He's broken a single season goal scoring record which has stood for near on a decade I believe, he is one of the worlds now very low total of 'pure strikers'. Additionally a couple in the Europa league & across the board a few assists. Some how this didn't warrant a +1? Sorry, are you sure?
     
    Here's something more. Plenty of pundits & people in the know within Serie A football believe that if Napoli had beaten Juve recently in their 2nd Serie A encounter they would have gone on to win the Scudetto this season that's how good they were. If you ask me, the reflection in ratings of some of the players mentioned for their contributions to that belief from top pundits in Italy this season is quite embarrassing in some cases. Jorginho, Allan & Koulibaly got +1 ratings, why didn't Ghoulam?
     
    Elseid Hysaj getting a +1 to 88 however, the same as Sime Vrsaljko received yesterday is the biggest insult. Whomever is making these Serie A changes has clearly not looked at statistics let alone actual Serie A football this season.

    Hope this thread hasn't been forgotten about as I believe that custom game worlds & the ability to make them unique & such is probably the future of SM & clearly where some of the best GW's lie due to the sociability & custom content some provide.
     
    A couple of ideas that I've thought about & discussed with some of the community;
     
    Chairman Loan Restrictions - The option to turn on & off the chairman's interventions for loans. For example, in a custom GW we have a 50 man squad limit which is an earlier suggestion of making a real limit rather than one GW's have to themselves police, now in that GW some squads have a big mix of first team & youth team squads for various tournaments that are run within it, again another earlier suggestion for creating custom tournaments in GWs. So my squad as the example has a first team of roughly 21 players 89-94 rated & then a youth team ranging 89-70. My limit with the chairman restrictions for loaning out players is 85 however I have players that are 86,87,88 who do not get into the first team & therefore sit there doing nothing when I would happily loan them out. The ability to lift this restriction in customs would be perfect as again the point I have always made is these are custom worlds & this kind of customisation is a must, if these additional rule changes are abused by owners then the GW would not be popular, IE. they would pay the price for abusing rules. Let owners have these kind of customisation abilities.  SMFA Competitions - Secondly I & many others 100% believe that the current setting of in custom worlds still only allowing gold members to compete in SMFA competitions makes them completely useless. I am in a custom world where we use friendlies to create our own elite competition because the SMFA is pointless as you get 4/5 human teams in them anyway & then only 1 of those is gold & actually controls their match lineups. I don't believe allowing non gold members to compete in the SMFA tournaments in customs is the answer for these competitions as still that would mean 4/5 managers & 30 odd AI sides competing which few therefore care for however it makes competing in the league / divisions more worthwhile. An example is that in this same custom world as soon as the D1 title is decided the managers in 2nd down then don't care if they finish 2nd or 15th as it means nothing. The current system is setup as rewarding glory for the title & otherwise nothing in the eyes of myself & many. As I have prior suggested in this thread a better idea is to allow full custom tournaments in the spare dates between league & cup fixtures, probably rather than allowing non gold members to play in the SMFA as like I mentioned, to play against 30 AI sides & potentially 4 other human sides makes the competition actually pretty unappealing.

    Pinned News Feed - Would it perhaps be possible for a Game World owner to pin a message they post to the top of the news feed so that it doesn't get bumped down etc. 1 message that would be changeable, it could literally be the owner saying 'Welcome to such & such' or they could here put information in regards to in game world rules such as a Youth Cup being arranged etc. This would be such a simple but great addition to the new UI & I know there have been hundreds of game worlds created & promoted over the years where unique rules have made said game worlds their own, being able to put rules at the top of your own game world so that everyone knows them new or old would be amazing. There is also a fair few examples where being able to use a link in this message would be great in order to allow game world members to use the link for blogs or Facebook pages which are a big part of these game worlds. I know & understand why links aren't allowed however allowing 1 link to be placed in this 'pinned topic' on the news feed by game world owners only would be amazing.
    Less Ads - Custom game worlds are paid for by the owners unless SM gives them away like they did upon release of the new UI, less ad's or no ad's would certainly be a step forward seeing that the game world specifically has been paid for & yet it act's currently just like any old free game world that also has ads which I believe is not right.
    Removing Managers - You are the game world owner & therefore you should have the power to remove managers from your own game world. If you were to remove a manager unfairly then the whole of the community in the game world would likely revolt & therefore your game world would have effectively set it's own death sentence which is why I believe allowing the owner to remove managers should be available & their choice to do as such because they will face the consequences if they abuse the tool.
    Squad Cap - Being able to set specific squad cap limits to; full team, first team, youth team. Not just the ability to set a straight squad cap but the ability to divide a squad cap between first team & youth team as well as ensuring that the tool takes into account players that have been loaned out or in also.
    Wage Cap - Something I am yet to come across in any of the game worlds I have partaken within to date however a necessary tool & improvement which would allow further uniqueness in game worlds. Again this tool should be customary also in allowing a game world owner to break up the cap between first team & youth team or just as a full team setting.
    Transfer Cap - Being able to limit a quantity of transfers over a season / period of time again would be a handy addition to custom GW's & help make them unique.
    Custom Cups - The ability to change the names of current cups (Cup / Shield) alter prize money, number of entrants etc. Either this or the ability to add 1 additional custom cup to the already set in place Cup & Shield. Within custom game worlds currently managers & owners when creating their own in game world custom cups are forced to do so via arranging friendlies. This would provide a helpful tool in order to properly setup these / this custom cup.
    Custom Prizes - Allow game world owners to offer credits or specific amounts for winning the competitions rather than just the economy settings which presumably set specific amounts at the moment & are not allowed to be altered. 
    Polls - A game world owner should be able to apply a poll with either various set messages or custom messages. These could be used for things such as; voting for a manager / player of the month / season. Voting for whom should be the new manager of a club that recent became available in the game world. Voting for allowing an individual back into the game world whom left before. Voting on rules within the game world & changes to current ones.

    No player is truly ever unavailable. You might get offers and you can respond them them with the message that 'The club does not want to sell this player' & sometimes you might need to use it a couple of times but in the end the manager gets the message.
     
    Also, by not allowing managers to have this option set it encourages managers to post on the news feed or to PM a manager to tell them a player is not for sale. 
     
    Big plus ++++ for social interaction within game worlds which many really need.

    Additional idea
     
    News Feed Breakdown - The ability to separate the news feed between; Transfer News & GW News. Would all for a much easier navigation of information & I also believe improve the social side of custom worlds. This could be an on / off separation ability which the GW owner can alternate between should they want it or not.

    Well a positive that in the last hour or so the latest update changes have been implemented which in include the 'new' homepage with the duel club & news feed messages with the managers list placed above along with the 'Clubs taken' total which looks very neat. Also good to see that flagging messages on the news feed is introduced although how likely it'll be that all messages flagged will be checked is up for debate.
     
    A separate tab for the schedule is very handy & is much easier to navigate to and between especially in regards to arranging friendlies and such which was a bit of a ball ache prior. Looks like a slight font change on the rating digits as well as players & club badges being presented in tidy boxes everywhere now which feels like a change somewhat to what it was prior. The 'Records' within the manager tab is a good move as this kind of information is a start to a lot more club related information I would like to see / have proposed in this thread in the past. 
     
    On the 'Game World' tab the 'Overview / History' tab still doesn't work and so far the loading times have gotten worse yet having also slowed down somewhat in the past month I feel. 
     
    A step in the right direction though, clearly it's going to take a long time for everything to be updated, improved & such but a step in the right direction in my opinion.

    DP 91 reacted to CAFC28 in Player concerns   
    Surely the best way to calculate concerns would be to count it immediately from when the concern was changed, and adjust the criteria for a concern to change slightly?
     
    Example:
     
    PlayerA, 90 rated fringe player plays 6 out of 40 possible games in season (15%) and develops a L1 lack of games concern.
    At this point, the games counted towards his concerns are reset to 0.
    If PlayerA plays 9 out of the next 10 matches, he's played 90% of games, not 15 games out of 50 (30% of games).
     
    The concerns are calculated over the next 20? 30? possible matches, so if they play 27/30 matches (not physically possible with the current fitness calculations, though!) their concern would drop.
     
    Have the % played requirements, and match number requirements adjusted per level of concern.
     
    Example, on a very basic level:
     
    No concerns - match % depends on number of players in same position, rating (higher rating expects to play more games) pretty much as it is currently. However, once a concern develops, regardless of rating;
    Level 1 concern - must play at least 60% of the next 20 matches, counted where match day fitness is above 90% and not injured/banned.
    Level 2 concern - must play at least 65% of the next 20 matches, counted where match day fitness is above 90% and not injured/banned.
    Level 3 concern - must play at least 70% of the next 24 matches, counted where match day fitness is above 85% and not injured/banned.
    Level 4 concern - must play at least 75% of the next 24 matches, counted where match day fitness is above 85% and not injured/banned.
    Level 5 concern - must play at least 80% of the next 30 matches, counted where match day fitness is above 80% and not injured/banned.
     
    I know it's a bit 'black and white' like that, and there are other criteria such as rating of other players in the same position, but part of the problem at the moment is the seeming randomness of it.
    A player can be 2nd or 3rd choice in a position and sit happily in a team for years with no concerns, playing 1 or 2 cup games a season. Another player can be 2nd or 3rd choice in a position, playing every couple of matches or so, and develop a concern seemingly out of nowhere.
     
    If concerns were more formulaic once they started, it could make balancing a larger squad or a lot of high rated players a bit more tricky - to clear one player concern, you could end up with a 2nd player developing a concern instead.

    In the Game World - Overview / History section then History - Honours - Would it be possible here to get a total of trophies won by the current managers in the game world here, how many total, what trophies and in what season. This would be a great way to see whom the current most successful managers are within a game world without going through every season manually.
     
    It would also in my opinion be a better way of telling / combining the stats given for the 'Current best managers in a game world' which seems to be totalled based upon games played / points won / average points won total. It would be great to be able to also compare managers by honours won.

    Apologies on the potential right forum topic for this as I don't believe it exactly fits into the Stadium threads or the Player positions and such threads.
     
    I know this kind of thing has been briefly mentioned previously but another example of something surely being wrong with the updates to the chairman that have been added since the new UI. I will post it in the stadiums thread also just incase as it also covers stadium related content.
     
    Tonight in a game world, Manchester United in D2 with their 75k stadium received a financial boost of £50m from the chairman. The club has a good squad, 14+ 90 rated players, including 3 93/94's, which I believe put's them well inside the top 5 in the whole of the game world in terms of strength in highly rated players. They do however have a large squad of 75 players and the average rating of the whole squad is 84. Their wage bill of £2.1m is easily covered.
     
    Now the manager had around £25m anyway before the chairmans cash boost for the club which now gives them around £75m. 
     
    Compare this to my Stoke side within the game world. Just promoted to D1 as league winners. I had £2m total, 37 players with an average of 86 across the whole squad & 10 90+ players, none above 91 a wage bill of £1.2m. Due to the promotion the stadium was increased from around 28k to 33k which is fine, it's in the joint lowest 5/6 stadiums in D1 but I've just been promoted, it's understandable. 
     
    My chairman however did not give the club any financial boosts whatsoever. So the comparison is a newly promoted team, smaller stadium, worse squad, less cash, no financial boost compared to the team with the better squad, bigger stadium, more cash whom got a £50m financial boost. If someone can explain to me that this is correct and fair I'll be impressed. If it comes down to a clubs fanbase then I believe this needs to be re-thought in the case of financial boosts because with this system in place the 'rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer'.
     
    EDIT:
     
    I have also been informed that Arsenal, promoted to D1 in 2nd place this season received £39m. They have 78 players, an average squad rating of 81, 12 players 90+ however they have; Messi, Ronaldo, Ramos, Pique, Fabregas, Silva, Rooney. A stadium of 60,000 & their wage bill is £2.9m. Essentially you've allowed the chairman to pay for their seasons wage bill even though they have a huge stadium anyway. Again, the rich get richer & the poor get poorer, is this what is meant to be happening?

    It's not practical to keep two interfaces up-to-date going forward.There's going to be lots of notices over the coming weeks advising managers to start trying the new one because the old will be phased out. We're also going to encourage them to provide feedback so that we can make changes before removing it. Plus the 2D matchday experience has been designed for the new interface and will be introduced all being well in January.
     
     
    Yes, that is correct as our priority is bug fixes and make changes to the new UI based on your feedback at the moment.
     
     
    (1) There are separate threads about changes to formations and where players can now play here. I'm not going to get into a debate on that subject as there are quite a few posts in that thread as well as this one that pretty much sum up my view on the subject and why AMs can no longer play as wing-backs etc.
     
    (2) The google hangouts that I held during the Summer were to let members of our community know about the upcoming changes and for you to provide feedback. Everything that I discussed has more or less been implemented.
     
    (3) It presents a new challenge to managing a smaller club. Some will take on that challenge but the majority won't as they like to manage ready made teams. If anything it should make managing a smaller club easier as you can pick up more bargains. Also if you have an eye for talent you will thrive with the changes because you can pick up new players that are added to the database or those that are breaking through very cheaply. When they make it their valuation will be a lot higher and you'll be laughing. 
    You are also contradicting yourself with this:
    "Interface, buggy as hell, nauseous to look at and uneccesarily complicated. It's like something out of cbeebies. Why would someone come up with that and more importantly why would decisionmakers agree that its good? The only way people would think that's good is if they don't spend any time looking at it.
    - The biggest problem of all is that you are not listening to the feedback, complaints, rants and suggestions of your customers. You have a duty to listen to their frustration just like any customer service team of any company. Deleting posts of people complaining is like hanging up on someone complaining in the real world."
     
    You are contradicting yourself with this because you are starting to become insulting not just to me but to others that actually like the new interface as well as those that have designed it. Ask yourself this, would you come on and respond to someone who is insulting and/or abusive or adds nothing constructive that can help improve the game for all members of the community? I've always said that if people offer constructive feedback then I will respond to them and nothing has changed with that. Also we do listen to all constructive feedback and not all of it can be implemented.
     
     
    1 (a/b/c) The old interface will be eventually phased out for all members. Those who aren't using the new one yet have plenty of time to give it a try and provide feedback so that we can make the necessary changes.
     
    1 (d) That sounds like a bug. Report it in-game as a bug and our support team will look into this for you.
     
    (2) We're aware of the majority of the issues that you've flagged up but others we aren't so thank for you flagging them up. We're currently working our way through the bugs and you'll see improvements on a daily basis and even more so on Monday when a new build is released.
     
    (3) There's a separate discussion here and here re formations and players.
     
    (4/5) Some good points raised and I can see the reasoning behind them and were sat here nodding at some of them whilst reading them. I've flagged these up to the development team to review.
     
    (6) Prize money and matchday income has also increased. I'll do a separate blog article on this next week just like I did for stadium building and attendances.
     
    (7) These will be added back in in the coming weeks.

    If you go about things positively and provide constructive criticisms on issues I'm sure they'll be looked into gents. Why is something an issues, the negatives, mention the positive and then discuss manors in which you believe it can be improved.
     
    I'm with a lot of you that have been discussing how player ratings & positions, stadiums and the increases and all of those things need to be addressed however most of the time I get the feeling you're all moaning about issues and slating SM rather than working proactively in order to try and work out these issues.
     
    I believe it might have been yourself 'metaphysical' that posted about player positions and provided a link. The post that it brought you too included reasons why particular players should have certain positions assigned and that's brilliant as it provides evidence on a suggestion which is great & I'm certain that the dev's will look through the thread and see such posts when they can.
     
    I do however believe that currently the SM focus appears to be on improving the UI and addressing the bugs and issues which need to be dealt with rather than the issue of players ratings and positions which is a large & time consuming task on the whole. 'Rome wasn't built in a day'. Debatably I think the biggest issue is with the UI for the majority of people and is probably the priority currently but of course the players positions and ratings need to be dealt with and will be.
     
    I'm sure that if everyone continues with these posts complaining rather than being proactive, clogging the thread and being negative towards the progress that is being made and will be made that this kind of thread will end up being ignored completely as there will be no point.
     
    Edit:
    Post's that have nothing to do with the UI will be deleted because they're in the wrong topic post. Having a tantrum about it will get you nowhere.
