I have been enjoying this website for four years now. I have met lots of cool guys and couple jerks (countem with the fingers of one hand).
I've given out 53,000 plus thumbs and given 360 GG in tips and a couple hundred more in gifts.
In return I've spent around $5000 dollars on games and probably another thousand on other wargaming related items. Christ! I could've bought a car!

I enjoy the camaraderie and the games. I'm glad I rejoined the hobby and don't regret a dollar I've spent (I wheel and deal a bit, if I don't like a game its out the door!).
Hopefully the latest yearly tempest in a tea pot will blow over.
I am also active on CSW forums, CSW Social. Facebook vassal wargamers.
I'm working on a vassal mod for a Publisher/Designer and I'm playtesting for a Developer from MMP.
Love this stuff!
I have around 6 or 7 games in progress on vassal/skype .
I was out of wargaming for close to 15 years until I stumbled on this site 4 years ago. I'm sure glad I did!
Thank You all and Thank You BGG!

You're a good Geek, Bill.

In 10 years that $5000 car would be a rusty piece of junk.

In 10 years your wargames will be OOP collector's items and worth a fortune on eBay.

Except the east front ones. They'll be all worn out and faded from use. Maybe a few choice WW1 games as well.

Actually, considering Bill does most of his wargaming on Vassal, his games will be pristine. His computer on the other hand... whistle

Which one is you in CSW, Billyboy?

What game are you working on Vassal and playtesting? I am interested to know. I guess they must be WW2-related, right? They would be my must-buy when you finish.

Bill is the kind of wargamer I wish I never met.shake

Due to his uncontrollable positive additude towards the Der Weltkrieg Series I've allready started to spent a fortune on those!

And to make matters worse!!!
I just bought a second hand copy of DAK2!! Because he was making snarky comments about how GREAT and SUPER, the OCS-system is.

AND I DON'T EVEN NORMALLY PLAY WW2 GAMES!!!

So Bill,
I'll send you the bill later!cool


Keep 'm coming.

Cheers,
Haring
