As our friend PhilIrish suggests, we have to work to give you an integrated experience between the new Forum and Paintmap.
In order to move in this direction, now you can post your new paintings directly form Paintmap to the forum. This is the checkbox you will find in the new upload form.
In addition you will be able to choose the board that suit your painting.
At the other side we are making your map more accesible from the community. All your posts will show your last map linked to your Paintmap Profile.
We hope these first features and the unique login system help you to enjoy both faces of paintmap.
