Thanks Whovian!Welcome, Joe!
I will be interested to see how the site moves forward under your editorial control.
One suggestion I do have, whether it's for you or someone you designate, is to not forget the forums when talking about the direction of the site and your plans for it.
I would really love to see a revitalization of the community that the forums on the old site generated. I was just starting to get involved when things went down the crapper. A lot of good community members left.
I plan on sticking around to see how things go, but I hope part of your plan involves the community, not just the site itself.
Dear Joe,Not to worry, I'm quite relaxed here. Don't mind me.
I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread down - I think we're just beating a dead horse at this point. Your concerns have been heard loud and clear!
You're also more than welcome to pick up this conversation in another sub-forum, or my introductory post in 'Announcements' for anything relating to me and my role here.
If you have any other questions about any of the issues discussed in this thread, please don't hesitate to either PM me here or email me - joer [at] wargamer [dot] com
My door's always open for you guys.
I do have a couple of questions...
While I can appreciate that the entire thread was off-topic,—focused on form and content of your debut post rather than on the subject itself (Eon Altar)—was a "lock down" really necessary? While your position as Editor-In-Chief obviously provides such an option it does seem a wee bit heavy handed. Yes, you claim to have got the message "loud and clear" but surely there is some good to be found in allowing a saddened, disappointed and frustrated community to air their views and concerns amongst themselves? Given free reign I'm sure the thread was about to peter out on its own.
But okay. My second question concerns generally moving forward. What in your view is the difference between Pocket Tactics and Wargamer.com? And if there is a difference how do you propose to support that difference?
Hello Snotty,Hi Joe,
One of the most missed features from the old forum was the like button. We could all 'like' a post we agreed with to show we acknowledged it without having to spam the threads with 'I agree' type messages. In fact there were a variety of like style buttons, similar to what facebook has now.
I dont know if its in your power to implement this feature here, but I know you would instantly ingratiate yourself to a lot of people if you could bring this feature about.
