Only looked at this briefly but it looks like a great improvement.
A couple of issues I have found.

I am premium but I can read the tournament section (though I suspect the above post is supposed to say
You'll not be able to read this forum if you are non-Premium.


"Game Openings" as a section may cause confusion as discussions on the Southern Hedgehog should go into Strategy. Would it complicate things if it was renames to something like "replacements and substitutions".

Probably just want to take out the "non".

When I first saw "Game Openings, I had the same thought until I read the description. Perhaps "Game Availabilities" or "Games to Join"???

I'm going to have to make an adjustment after finally getting good at talking about playing DVFG's to now playing PbFDV's. or PFDV's....or PDV's. :D The new name is much clearer. :)

Yep a change in name for DVFGs was requested by Pedros as he was getting an increasing number of questions placed in DVFGs for variants played on the main site.

I've changed the site map info for Tournaments. I'll have to change the permissions on Tournaments for Premium members, I think...

I'll have a think about the title for Game Openings. Opening strategy isn't the same as game openings as and I don't see much confusion... But I DID want to keep as much confusion as possible out of the Forum.

Btw, there is still some tidying-up to do but I don't intend moving any threads about except where there are some necessities in Site News, especially in Information.

EDIT: Actually, I didn't have to change Permissions for Premiums - I'd just out-thought myself with the details in the site map. It should be that non-Premiums have Read Only access to the Tournament section. Premiums have full access.

Seems a little strange that the section for asking questions about the rules and giving advice on regular rules issues isn't actually under the 'PlayDip Rules' heading?

PlayDip Rules is about the rules of using the site, whereas Rules Questions is about the game itself. Fairly different areas.
