So far, that's the best feature IMO.
Thanks EG.

Unfortunately, we simply can't code it that way, as of right now. But it is something we are trying to implement. We are still tweaking things here and there, more features will come down the road.

"Votes" are the # of votes readers have submitted on games. For example Reader Scores (RS) and Hype Scores (HS).

This gives our readers a way of posting their review score of a particular game and it averages all votes for a total sum. Same w/ Hype score, games that haven't been released, so we see how much hype it is generating. If you vote on the RS or HS, your vote count goes up accordingly.

Unfortunately, the only 2 skins that will work with the main page navigations are OS 2.0 Default and OS 2.0 Default (no left menu). We simply kept the skins, because we know a lot of people don't like change.

Correct, and as you can see, I've been quite busy voting for games on the main page where as our fearless leader has not. Of course, there's that whole coding thing he's been working on, all the while raising a daughter, working, etc, etc, etc.

My goodness! I do believe I've come up with a new term. I'm a....VOTE whore!!

That's understandable. I asked because i'm one of those who don't like too much change and well, all that white space plays havoc with my eyes.
