Caution: May contain wargame like substance

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, fellow grogs, I'm pleased and delighted to announce the following:

Wargames/GENERAL is back!

What does this mean?

1. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY! Wargames/General reverts to being the go-to place for us to post any and all wargamer related content.

2. Wargames/Historical Context is hereby declared defunct; that subforum will deleted in due course. Posts currently there will be moved into General by me over the coming days.

3. Wargames/AWOL will remain open for us to use, both as a social space, and as a place where any problem threads can be moved to get them off the front page, if necesssary.

Note that the central issue as to why the split happened in the first place were threads that would become political appearing on the front page of the site. These threads would then get locked, or sent to RSP. It was annoying for everyone. This is the compromise: IF there's a problem thread, it now can get moved to AWOL, if necessary.

That is all. Carry on!

You have to, at least from a distance, look as if you know what you're doing, and I can manage that.

Finnaly it happens.
Great news Leroy.
What made the difference in this modifications? The run outs to CSW? Did the wargamers users made any difference?

Have the powers that be signed the treaty of Kerouac–Caen yet, giving the Beatnik Coffee Haus over as a permanent and perpetual administrative district of Wargames?

Any word on whether apolitical wargaming-related threads that were previously moved to AWOL will be moved back to General?

A simple and elegant solution. Really, wargame discussion overlaps between directly game-related and historical interest enough that having one forum for everything makes sense. An AWOL forum for "problem" and completely off-the-wall threads is a good compromise.

Excellent stuff. Will hand the Canadian flag out to celebrate. Common sense prevails and the nanny state takes another hit.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.
