Hmmm...that is strange.  Joel Toppen runs it... If you have not heard of him, he is one of GMT's "go to" developers and has even designed a few games for GMT. The man also makes top notch Vassal modules.

Anyway, he is usually on the ball with stuff...so strange you have not heard back. Maybe vacation?

The site had a hiccup a few months back when FB did a sweep for socially undesirable sites. I heard that FB had snagged the site because a member was selling the game: "Hitler's Reich". Knee-jerk BS on FBs part. But FB is "free" so they can make the rules. Back then, the site was called the "Wargamers Marketplace" and was open. To avoid shutdown from FB, Joel had to change the name to "CONSIM Marketplace" and tighten up membership. So maybe your request is stuck in some lingering effects of that.

BTW, when you do get in...the community is a pretty good one. Joel has done a great job in cutting folks from the rolls who don't follow the rules. He has even cut a legendary, highly prolific wargame designer from the group; apparently the guy would take money, but was then just too busy to respond or actually send the games. Joel actively monitors the site, and has also quickly purged some real idiots who got out of line, or posted racist / extremist stuff.

Just got the invite today. More than likely the long holiday weekend.

Was hoping to see if I could find NaW:Desert Heat used, but I pulled the trigger on a new copy yesterday  :smitten:
