Is it supposed to be cut off like that at the bottom?

You should offset the boundaries of bonuses enough so you can see both colors at the same time. Notice the Milazoo (red) bonus is only seen on one side. If you look at one of my maps, you can see both colors in bordering bonuses:

The location of your bonus links is very confusing (many are not near the bonuses really). That should be more logical. They should also not be similar colors next to each other, that makes things confusing. The exception would be like I did on another map where there is a super bonus:

http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer?PreviewMap=9405

In that case I used colors from the same family, but added some gap to the bonuses to make it more obvious.

If you don't use that method, I suggest using black for a super bonus (makes it stand out easily as a super) and possibly just list them on the side rather than have them near anything. Or you can do like I did and use a different shape for the super bonus link to make it more obvious.

Honestly I didn't look at that because the links were far away and it takes a bit more time to look at them all.

Also, for some unknown reason to me, when you click on a bonus link it tells you what it is worth, but not how many territories it is. But in game it does. I have never understood that.
