Probably should've had this in last week's Tuesday Newsday release, but...

It was 2 years ago last week that we opened the doors here (8/31/18) and here we are!
 :party:

It hasn't fully developed the way we'd originally planned for it to, but what ever does?


So what do y'all think?   

Shoot me a PM if you prefer not to blab out loud, but we're genuinely interested in what you guys think about how we're doing and where we're going

I think its a great place with a good core of people. We have kept out trouble makers and, as planned, steered away from topics that caused controversy. There is plenty of hobby related activities either here or affiliated to ACD. OK, I accept that not all goal have been realised, but by the same token, its not been an unmitigated disaster either.

Happy Birthday, ACD!  I don't know what goals you guys had originally set out for this place, but I have no complaints.  8)

I like it - but.......

I just get confused with the forum names...that's all. They don't jump out at me as where I should be posting...not all anyway.

Sorry to be the only naysayer here - but you asked  :tickedoff:

Are you referring to just the ones under 'Wargaming' or the whole forum?

Don't sweat it. We want all kinds of feedback.

The intent was to get away from the stovepiping of digital versus tabletop games, and to focus instead on the era/topic of the wargame regardless of how you play it

for things that aren't workings, we were just grouping those into more general buckets since those weren't really the focus of what we were doing here

That was the intent, anyway. Not sure how well we've been meeting it...

Looking at the forums, it's really just the bit under Dip- blah...don't know what that means and the forum names under - they don't stand out as obvious and so mostlye I post under Simposia.

I wouldn't sweat it - i'm kind of mostly aware what they mean now - but it took me some time.

I have no complaints.  I really like that it's free of politics and similar topics.  It'd be nice to have more ASLers here, but I know where to find them.  At the same time, I like hearing about other games besides ASL.

Otherwise - great job building a great community!

It's been a good 2 years.

Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

You could always invite the ASLers over here  :whistle:

Congrats on the 2 years and I'm just sorry it took me so long to get here.

I'll echo JD's comments about it being a bit confusing about where to post certain things but it just takes sometime to get use how its all organized.

The only other thing I would mention is no real criticism of the forum itself but more of a revelation of my laziness/ineptitude but I sometimes wish it was easier to upload pictures to the forums. Maybe I've been spoiled or gotten lazy with the Twitter app being able to take the picture in the app and post it but there have been a couple times when I've wished for a quicker way here on the forums (There is the possibility that this way exists and I just don't know how to utilize it)

Also, getting involved with the guys on Saturday Night Fights has been a real highlight of my time here as well!

Are you talking about from your phone/tablet? or from a computer?

Sorry from the computer.
