We will convert to HOTS on 1 Jul 2013. Please let me know if any violent objections. AP will also do some research on the conversion process to ensure we don't face any unexpected surprises (e.g. triggers or abilities breaking, game crashing, units missing models).
Rationale for timing:
- 4 months since HOTS release. This gives enough buffer time for people to upgrade. There's no hard sales figures on HOTS, but my sense is at least 80% of StarCraft II players have upgraded
- With the new introduction of 'Spawning' by Blizzard, NOTD is technically accessible by everyone (just not in all conditions - without HOTS you can't join a pub NOTD game alone).
- There's useful content in HOTS (models, sound, abilities and terrain) that we can use. It's meaningful enough to give the developers more tools to polish...
Put simply, if you haven't noticed the read/unread and page/link icons aren't exactly fitting of our general color scheme, so I'd like to get them redone, right now they're in sprite sheet form (See below, that's 4 images in one single image) so I'd like submissions in that same form, and same dimensions.
So what do you get for this?

Apparently some people have some issues with CSS being cached from previous forums, try using Ctrl + F5 to clear this, or occasionally ctrl+shift+F5
If you were a Black Ops on previous forum, PM me to have it reinstated, we're using this migration as a way to weed out inactivity.
You don't need to manually do YouTube links anymore, just paste the link to YouTube video and the forum will auto-parse them. This should also work for other sites supported by the site, like Vimeo and such.
[align=center] is now [center] and same for left/right aligns.
URL's? Just select the text you want to use as a 'link' with mouse then hit the little chain icon at the top of the editor.
