History - ok
Book recommendations - ok
Average age of the people involved in the wargaming hobby - not ok

Am I correct here?

Not according to Octavian unless you're specifically referring to what gets moved to AWOL, and not what gets moved out of general.

History: not ok (otherwise why have a subforum for it?)
Book recommendatiosn : A bit fuzzier, but probably mostly not OK along with history.
Average age: AWOL fodder.

Expanded my answer while you were replying to be less flippant.

I just want to say, God, on behalf of all of us thank you for all of the good things we do in your name, like charity and forgiveness. That’s an idea we would never come up with. That’s for sure. You know that better than anybody.

Well, if I've got this right -

Talking about what gets moved is very similar to announcing it's going to move and saying you don't want it to be moved so I'm guessing this thread is going to stay on the front page...

The rest of them I'm not so sure about.

And yet this post brings no sense of community to the forum, while the "how old are you" post brought out no fewer than 80 wargamers who felt it was worth reading and commenting on.

He's not supposed to be head-shaking, he's supposed to be head-spinning. This was a close as I could find.

Yossarian would be so proud.

Where do discussions about the wargame forum set-up (like this) go?

Seems like Chit-chat is the only viable place,
along with all the other stuff the admin don't care about.

What are the rules if a thread is locked or someone is red-X, don't talk about it, right?
So...coming soon: "BGG Rule 4.5.16: If a thread is moved to AWOL you can't start a thread about why a thread was moved or why a thread was not moved or why a thread should be moved or a thread should not be moved..."

Roll a 1d6, if the answer is 11. then it stays.
Otherwise I do what the F'ing hell I please as I am an ADMIN!!!!
ohh no wait, Dice are for war games......I mean draw a card and if it has picture of a pony on it then ride it or have it ride you over to AWOL.

Clearly, wargamers as a group did not show enough love to the pony-geddon.... and now we are getting payback with the community version of a horse's head in your bed.
