It seems that a few of the forums I visit are getting 'silly' as it were.
Not mentioning names, but one of them has been going down hill (in my opinion) for a while now, with some post bordering on excessive spam and a bit of mudslinging going on. More than a few members have voiced their displeasure with this forum and left, or limited their posting there.
And now I learn that one of my favourite forums has now banned any topic post 1989 when it comes to modern warfare. Like - WTF?
It appears that this descission stops any forum members from posting topics or images from anything post 1989. This means I can't show off my 15mm Modern Aussies, or my Modern North Koreans... or .... yeah, you get the idea.
This sucks for gamers and traders alike, for it seems they can't display anything with a modern context.
No longer are modern 'imaginations' or 'what-ifs' allowed there, because it seems it will offend someone. Again, like - WTF?
It seems that the world needs to eat a few spoons of cement and harden the F**K UP.
rant over. Now on to the good part:
A good few weeks ago now I found a link in a fellow blogger's web site for a new forum for wargaming called 'The Wargames Website'.
So far this have been a very friendly forum, with most members enjoying things to do with war gaming (shock gasp!).
I have been making some posts there in relation to my 15mm Modern project, and the creator of the "No End In Sight" rules frequents there, so it has been useful to visit to ask questions or pimp projects.
For those that haven't heard of this new forum, please click on the link below.
