Mark, I don't understand this. The site is and is supposed to be software neutral. I believe that the owner does have revenue share deal set up with PF for click throughs, but as of the last time I talked to him several months ago, he has never made a single dime from PF based on this (ie, there is not enough click through). The "vast" majority of the regular posters over there use either Photoshop/GIMP or Illustrator/Inkscape for their maps, with some CC maps and a few from other software. This is one of the reasons I would really like to see some people who are masters of FM to do some posting over there, to better represent this product.

Joe
