    Not sure if I did ask this before or not, but why not allow us to see some
    of the pictures people use here instead of the tiny versions we see now?
    Not sure how much space that would take up, hopefully not much effort
    required either.

    Yes, agreed, some legacy decisions such as the tiny avatars do need to go.

    This site has been around for so long now, that some design decisions made for the internet "as it was" are still with us now.

    And avatars for all will be available early next year too - not really a good reason to remain as a subscriber only feature if some community moderating system can be introduced to remove any that are inappropriate.

    RHP went online in February, 2001. Take a look at the "tables" link at the top of the page to find some member data.

    The number of players here increased very quickly so there wasn't much of a problem with finding a game.

    I suggest you join tournaments, ladders, sieges as well as play with friends.
    If you join a clan you will end up in clan games too. I like games that have
    a little more importance than just a normal game.
