    I agree that it will be based on speculation. But I still support it.
    As for it affecting user sign up, you guys can make a system that only members can only view it. You can make an extra option in User`s control panel from where we can access it.

    ...or, make it in such a way, you must become a member to view it, hence increasing user sign ups. Can use it as a way to increase our user base.

    Talking about that. I think SevenForums turned out quite well. EightForums is almost certainly headed in the same direction.

    Nice idea, but I think Microsoft is so unpredictable, you never know how far down the line you are. If you ask me, this would just a) disapoint people and b) Make people want to only register on the forum when the bar is nearly full ie. the forum, in the long term, people would loose interest.

Does anyone here know how to progress in Pinball F2 in Windows 8/
Man oh man! I love pinball! The last time I ever played pinball on a Windows PC was 2002!! :eek: I love the new pinball game in Windows 8, I'm addicted. But theoretically, I should be able to advance to new and different tables from what I've found about the game on Xbox. Does anyone know how to?
