You need to break-up your roster page into squads of 5 or is it more than just that?   There's a couple of ways u could do that.

U could post them individually in a free text/html content sections for each member, and have the squad name in the title before or after the name.  The squads could be put going vertical down the page with the leader of the squad being the first person at the top of each column.

Sq1   Sq2   Sq3
Sq1   Sq2   Sq3
Sq1   Sq2   Sq3
Sq1   Sq2   Sq3
Sq1   Sq2   Sq3

U could also use something like Photobucket and make a gallery page for each squad with a member photo.  Then u could add an embedded page content to ur roster page for each squad.

Just some thoughts.

Aaron talked about changing the roster to allow characters to be organized into blocks, separated by headers, somewhat like the forums.  I think that would solve many problems.  SuperAdmins would set the name of the blocks and which toon appeared in which one.

For a fantasy guild, you might have something that divides by class:

MAGE
toon 1
toon 2
toon 3
WARRIOR
toon 4
toon 5
toon 6
CRAFTER
toon 7
toon 8
toon 9

You might break it down by squads:

SQUAD 1
toon 1
toon 2
toon 3
SQUAD 2
toon 4
toon 5
toon 6
SQUAD 3
toon 7
toon 8
toon 9

You could have a separate section for officers, etc.  If the category was selected by checkboxes (like medals), you could even have toons show in more that one category.  Say someone was a crafter and an officer.  You could opt to have the toon appear in both categories.

I really like this idea.

Is Aaron still contemplating it?
