Seems like we are getting spammed here already!

I thank the two of you. You are really most unhelpful.

Somehow I had the idea that this was a forum for those serious about wargaming.

Looks like we have wandered into another Kiddie World.

^Dude, are you serious?

Lighten up.

We are happy to host all of you here and would love for you to integrate into our well-established and tight knit community, but you can't be so sensitive over a couple of comments that were clearly said in jest.

If you have any real issue with a post please feel free to report it, or PM me directly. Additionally, if there is anything you feel your group needs to make your experience here more productive, again, just reach out directly.

I am. Posts with absolutely no relevance to the subject do nothing to enhance the subject at hand.

If this forum believes otherwise, them a wargaming "grog" you are not.

Filling up a thread with nonsensical posts are the province of those who just wish to disseminate crap.

^Maybe you should just go back to the Matrix forums then? Or to wherever you came here from.

Quite honestly, I've tried to be welcoming and accomodating to your crew, but I've received nothing but complaints since you arrived. "The registration process is too difficult"; "the anti-spam measures are too cumbersome"; "people are posting off topic comments in our thread"...Just wow. Heaven forbid someone casts a little bit of humor into a website for wargames. End of the world. 

You are guests here and have done nothing to introduce yourselves to the community. You're off to a very peculiar, and not particularly positive start.   :idiot2:

We are serious about improving an unsupported game, namely "The Operational Art of War IV". Neither the current developer nor the retailer has an interest in supporting this game. We heard that this forum would be a good place to continue the conversation about creating a newer version of this game. We would like to create a much newer and most importantly - supported - version of this game.

If members here feel that it is necessary for us to wade thru posts like that, then you may feel free to ban me, because I really get tired of such behavior for those who consider themselves a "groghead". I've been playing wargames since 1967, so I obviously I know nothing.

Thank you so much.

Nothing here is necessary. Feel free to stay, feel free to go, good luck with your game and good luck with your manners.

I asked my secretary to join our group in my backyard and she did.  I handed her the bottle of champange and asked her to open it for us:

I've just now gotten up from my pre-bedtime nap and I've had a few rules rolling around in the back of my head that I'd like to introduce to the group:
(1) And I'm afraid I'm going to have to insist on this one....When you're posting some verbage on this thread please avoid the following phrases:
Operation Paperclip
Midnight Climax
Ultra MK
Prism
Pence is an undercover fag
Trump is our next target
Nuclear Winter
NSA
CIA
NCIS
Air America
Top Secret Noforn
National Reconnaissance Office
MoonBase Olympia
Area 51
Militia of Montana
ISIS
Taliban
Palace Blue
Palace Gun
Palace Sword
North Korea
ICBM
Tactical Nuke

There are others but these are those on the tip of my tongue right now.  The reason is that these phrases trigger a record to be made at Ft. Carson by the NSA [ good evening gentlemen ] and I'm already on a "watch list" I suspect.   Also, don't say anything you wouldn't want a cunt to see.

I for one can say I'm 1000% confused as to WTF is going on here.  So, sorry for my previous random comment, I try to be welcoming to new people with a bit of humor.

If you want to see how a developer can come to this forum and build a following, check out the Admiral's developer thread on Task Force Admiral.  He came on, was open, friendly, and directly discussed what he wanted to do. 

He got volunteers, financial offers, and a lot of support and advice.  We keep on giving it too. 

Being a Grog absolutely means there's some grumbles.  But, we're still a community that goes back to the old Wargamer days.   We have a sense of humor to which we are not apologetic.  And we also deeply support people that want to build and develop.  We just kind of like to know WTF is going on first. 

Forgive us for being a bit contrary and confused for a lot of people with less than 10 posts appearing and not telling us who and what they are.   We get a TON of bots here and sometimes we expect the worst.

Anyway, accept my apology for a random funny comment, or don't.  I can grumble with the rest of them, but I prefer not to if possible.

Okay, I can see that I need to come clean about Alana.  Miss Alana Maria DelRay-Barre is just a name I made up.  And she's probably from LA instead of San Antonio.  She's a porn star and I liked her face so much I made it my  desktop.  I'll have to find a blonde for my avatar just for giggles.
