New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

  • Future of card & boardgaming...

    I know most of you are hard core wargamers and my question is mostly to those that play all different kinds of games.

    We've seen a rise in boardgames ever since the late 1990's...for the past 5 to 10 years the game industry has been booming. Last year 882 new games were published and the year before there were in the 900. Yet, of all these 800 games only 100 have sold well and only 20 to 30 can be considered as great overall games...
    This leaves me with two questions:

    1. How long will this trend continue?

    2. Since the yearly percentage of great games (20 to 30) is so small compared to the amounts that were published, I wonder if the publishers really know what a good game is and what a bad game???? Even if you consider the 100 that sold well.
    This means that only 1 out of 8 publishers know a bad game from a good one!

    What a waste of money and what incompetence!



    Kind regards,

    I walk by one of those boardgame stores several times a week,

    I see a lot of franchises, like Game of Thrones, Walking Dead that sort of thing,

    a lot of genre games, like Medieval or Western, War or Horror, I suspect those things sell by the cover alone, for gifts etc..



    My personal problem with boardgames is they require a group of likeminded individuals to get together on regular occasions, which is not always easy.

    Tonight is one of those occasions but it'll be a poker game, with a playstation on the side I think
