I'd rather get back to what this thread was for. Developing a list of people who want to play their games a certain way. Debates about organisers, whose game does what and when, and any other political debates are for another time and place. We had roughly 25 enthusiastic responses before we side tracked. Is it possible to clean the thread up, please? Just so we have a clear picture of who's on board. Thanks

You can have your own section which you admin (or anyone else you choose) - you invite people to join or ask them to invite themselves to the special interest group. You are all free to discuss whatever you like, how you like, on multiple threads within that section.

I second this. The thread was not supposed to be a discussion but showing your interest which started promising.

If it makes life easier and allows people to declare their interest, then that's fine. Thanks

So here is a new forum section for you: viewforum.php?f=261

You are currently admin. Every forum user can see the contents of the section but only those you register will be able to post. This will free you from random postings and ensure an undiluted engagement (and also prevent accusations that the forum has gone elitist and only 'likes' hard core red squirrel immersive games).

You can add people yourself via your user control panel > Options > Usergroups > Manage groups > and then on the right you will see Edit members. And you can promote anyone you like to join you as admin.

Anyone can request access themselves by clicking here: memberlist.php?mode=group&g=768 and you just need to approve the request.

I won't be joining so as not to piss you off further :wink: but all and sundry are invited to express an interest and join in with pvtjonny's idea and push things further.

Thanks CW.
Guys I've started us off in the ww2 airsoft experience group and added you to the group. If I've missed anyone or if anyone else wants to join, please just stick in a request :good:

Please help by taking some ownership of this group and contribute where you can.

Thanks

Well, now the original part of the post has been migrated somewhere else, can I seriously ask what the actual point of it all is, and possibly have a bit of a discussion about it?

The list of people interested is basically all players who already attend events. It just seems like a case of preaching to the converted, and with the best will in the world, I can't see what it will achieve. What we need is new converts, not another list of existing attendees.

Saying 'I'm interested in an event of some non-disclosed description at a theoretical point in the future' is all well and good, but it all depends on the game specifics as to whether I (or anyone else) is actually going to attend. If it's US only, I'm out. If it's Russians, I'm out. If it's on a weekend I'm doing something else, I'm out. And I'm sure everyone else on that list has a bunch of similar caveats.

As an organiser, I'm afraid it doesn't help one jot. I already know there are people out there that are interested in attending events. What there aren't is enough of them free or interested on each particular weekend.

Unless I'm working it, as I have done with some GMA games, it takes a very special ww2 game these days to get my attention, and being honest, only Hut 9...


This thread is probably for those slightly more positive about and still committed to WW2 airsoft and prepared to attend even if they are not in command and their friends aren't going.

I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

Fair enough, I'll leave you all to it. Cheers for the discussion.

As this thread is back on track, I would always make more time for a more involved game. I would be happy to help out anyway I can. Though I haven't been able to make the games that got cancelled, it really saddened me to see. Also slightly worries me that organisers aren't going to make the effort any longer, and that the games I have got leave for are going to be cancelled too.

So add me to the list!

That 100% is not the case, keep the faith! And recruit some chums into WW2 airsoft, it is in everyone's interest to do a bit of networking. (Gah, I can't believe I use the word networking. :P )
