Re: Cats like this icon idea?

That icon might be tricky to pull off in 32x32 resolution. Also, this isn't "cats play this icon". LOL

I did find a free at icon that shrinks down pretty well:

Re: Ad pop ups?

It sounds like the problem isn't prevalent, so that's a good thing. But if it does happen I want people to report it immediately!

Re: Glossary Needs An Update

With your help I was able to make extensive additions to the Video Game Terms page.

I noticed I hadn't reviewed any Astrocade titles for a while. I'm not sure there are any left after this!
