Future of TF2R and our rebrand plans...

Hey everyone, I'd like to say thank you for firstly showing some interest in looking at this post.
I'm first off going to assume you're actually bothered to see what I'm going on about so I'm just going to cut to the chase.

As a few of you hardcore rafflers know, the site originally was setup back on 1st July 2011 on the old host (one where my site is hosted) by me and miz, the site was running fine and dandy in it's original early state up to 7th July where it was suddenly discovered by /v/ (yes I know what you're thinking, "LETS RUN THIS SHIT TO THE GROUND!") and it quickly boomed with activity, so much it was starting to affect the performance of the server it was running on as it's hardware was to be honest, mid range last year spec.
Because of this I started to look around to see if the site could be moved, luckily after I facedesked multiple times while looking at server costs I decided to ask our current webmaster Darkimmortal if it would be possible to move the site over the server they use for GamingMasters.
Fluke of luck the discussion went something like this:

Reag~ ?: I've got a slightly large question to ask
Dark: go on
Reag~ ?: Would it be possible to move tf2r over to your server?
Dark: yeah

So the site moved shortly after asking on 15th July to it's current goat infested home which is handling it much better than the last server, fucking magic amirite?
And that's pretty much it, was a rough ride at first but things have gotten pretty smooth now, minus for the few half done and missing things but they'll be done eventually (valve time).

So I'd like to say thanks on behalf of the staff for using the site and hope you continue enjoying the service available, oh and have some graphs.
We use graphs now, graphs are cool.

You make me feel all warm inside.
This idea was floating now for quite a while in my head and probably withing next week ( 2011.07.25 - 2011.08.01 ) page should go live. But I'm not quite sure what I should add to that page...
So far I will probably implement these ideas:
  1. Display user avatar.
  2. Display user name.
  3. Show user rank, and progress bar how much he needs to reach higher rank.
  4. Add auto promotions to system.
  5. Display last 5/10 raffles that that user has won at least one item.
  6. Display last 5/10 hes created raffles.
  7. Show hes daily/weekly activity on the website. *
  8. Add user report function.

Items marked with * are questionable.

If you have any other ideas, please share.
Well it happens to be that I finally ended up finishing. I though I will go with more traditional style ( static page, shows who created that raffle, what items are in it and how much time left ) but like it took raffle page style ( to update list live ) and applied it to this page.

Also as side effect, I had to ban 5 people within first hour after release.
Well if you see items that do not match their official names. Post here.
It would be nice if you could also post the name that is currently on the system and official item name.
This is probably the first thing to be implemented.
However I'm not sure if there should be option to disable Captcha for public raffle or not.

What do you think?
Comment to this post with any ideas you want to suggest to TF2R.
Hello everyone.
