    First thing that kind of stands out is ( "Accredited Categories" x n ), multiple same lists. Also, I believe those extra categories were supposed to show different types of categories, I really dont want to go through entire list and figure out where something belongs to, but it seems this would be too much scrolling even when sorted.

    Maybe if there is some category, which has few entries and at least some sorting value, that could fit between "Follow Casinomeister" links and "Accredited Categories" in SINGLE line, would be much better solution.

    Big question is what should be there.
    Casino Software, there are already numerous casinos that use more than one software provider.
    License, I dont think that it is a most important thing among other categories, maybe I am wrong.
    Casinomeister Awards, this is what I see at that single line sorting menu. Also, it would appear as separate from all other more general categories, this is after all casinomeister.com and not some random casinodatabase.

    I`ll update if I find anything more.

    Main content. First appearance, looks fine, maybe adding slightly different shades, not much, to make items more separated. Bigger separator would not be the best choice in my opinion because it would take too much space on the page with so many items.

    Otherwise, im looking forward on using new section and I think those new categories will make it a nice tool for casino comparison and if stars allign bring better experience to players.

    Not a bug, but I would like to mention a little thing.

    Some casinos do not have any pending time. This sometimes means that withdrawals are automatically flushed. This is not mentioned in the accredited section. For example will these casinos be listed as casinos who do not "manually flush", which in a way indicates something negative. One example is Nordicbet, unless they have changed something most recently (it also says that they have a 24H pending/reverse time).

    The "categories" list is something I've tried working on, but unfortunately it's a vBulletin issue. In order to fix this, I'll need to rewrite some of the php templates - which of course is a possibility down the road, it just won't happen this week :p

    As for now, all categories are listed in alphabetical order instead of grouped sections.

    Over the weeks that I was creating the separate pages, the template evolved a bit. For the next few days, I'll be getting them on the same sheet of music so to speak. For those casinos that have 0 pending time, I need to create a new category so they will be listed as such - and move them from the "flush" category to the new one. :D

    I agree the list is way too long, if they were in subsections, maybe that you could click to collapse/expand?

    And how far back do you go for the awards category? IMO it should be the most recent awards only, because things change a lot (rushmore) and it gets confusing for people who are new.

    Also if you click on "Everest Gaming" none of the icons display except for Everest Poker.

    The one bug I'm seeing is that every time I click a different category, the new page displays that category list multiple times. I've currently got SIX of those lists on the left side of the page. No wonder it seems long!

    As I mentioned, this is something I need to fix with a programer :D

    Rushmore got an award? :p One thing about the awards, it's a historical document so to say. So it's hard for me to determine when the cutoff date should be. What I might consider is a player choice awards in the near future to be an additional accolade. But that would have to be something way further down the road.

    They haven't sent me the logos yet.

    It's not a bug. The casino's template is inherited from the accred template. The accred list is long, so I have the category "widget" embedded on the left hand side six times to match the length of the accred list. Unfortunately, each casino page inherits this template. There is no way of getting around this - bummer :(

    Instead of using the category widget multiple times couldn't you just add an invisible box at the bottom? Like just a transparent png or even an empty div that you could set the height of with CSS?

    Just brainstorming, I have no idea how this vbulletin thing works, but if you could do something like that, then you could set the height of the empty box as a variable, then cobble together a little math formula to change the height of the empty div dynamically depending on how many entries are in each category. Say for instance each entry takes up 100px in height, it would be the amount of entries in the category x 100px then subtract the height of the category widget thingie and the total is the new height!

    lol, or maybe I don't know WTF I'm talking about. ;)

    Hey Bryan, on the new accredited list there's no category for whether the casinos accept Canadian players. Now that the whole list is alphabetical I'm seeing casinos I've never seen before, but don't know if they take Canadians or not. Could you maybe add that as a category as well?
