It is interesting that there is little response to content posted here.  I posted pictures, started a group, posted a long post concerning questions and strategy regarding a game and it has generated little to nothing in response.  Definetly less traffic here and I'm sure that is part of it.  Also, maybe the fact that it is very compartmentalized.  So if you aren;t looking at specific groups then you are missing content.  Not sure what the answer is.

Now , lets get some good threads going. I started a WW1 gamers thread over here ( I have one on BGG) a couple years ago. Zero replies. I never started an Eastfront gamers thread over here because there already were some (Eric Walters) but they all have dust on there cobwebs.-billyboy

Hello geeks! I'm Moruya23 over there. I think I'll still sneak a look there now and then. Will still use the game database of course but the forum, not that likely. I'm hoping there'll be enough interesting freaks over here to supply my chat needs.

Great to see you all here. Just a heads-up, the CSW Forum will be down starting next Wednesday for a software upgrade. It will be down for a few days, but this social network will be available. We are going to do some work on enhancing our CSW Forum services based on member feedback.

If you have any questions, please feel free to fire away. My direct email is:

Welcome all!

Peter said: "I think there's potential here. The format is certainly different. It looks very friendly for uploading and displaying content. I joined a bunch of game-related groups, though, and notice that many don't have recent activity. Is there a reason for that? Is it because most of the discussions are going on over in the CSW game-specific folders?"

I'm going to answer this based upon my experience with my more established group, as well as my observations as having been in a few groups before (like the PC Wargaming group).

In my own group, for whatever reason, with the odd exception, I have been the only one generating content, and have gotten almost no feedback. At one point (not too long after CSW Social was established), there was the idea that maybe the group I established might serve as a the defacto company site for HPS Sims (at that time JTS didn't exist), and that came from HPS itself... but, the features seemed a bit spartan (and neither I nor my co-admin there had time to work out the various quirks) -so we left it.

But, and this is the interesting thing, people kept joining up despite there not actually being any new content added there. I decided to drop my account; still it kept growing, then Tiller split off from HPS, and people were obviously looking at the Group here as some sort of official presence, and worse, were worrying about if talking about Tiller material was ok -that is when there was a discussion.   Since I had a lot of dead links up on that group, including some material on my own personal site (that I thought was fairly ugly...), I decided - not too long ago, to rejoin; although like Lewis - I forgot my original log in; and petitioned to John Kranz to re add me as admin to that group.

That's another quirk of this site- if the founder of a group dumps their profile, even if another admin was designated - that admin doesn't appear to have the ability to add other admins...

Now, mind you, I am still learning the features - and I think some of the features are pretty interesting in terms of potential - but I think that the group admins are largely responsible for creating areas within their groups for content to start. It seems pretty open-ended. In my own site's group's case -I've added pages for series... it also looks like you can add files (I think up to 8 mb files); what these pages are - is largely left to the imagination of the page creator.

Unfortunately though, I haven't worked out how (or if you can) to modify the look of groups (similar to how you can change your own page's look).

Anyway, there you have about what I know about things at this point.

I'm sure if we lost CSW Forum for some reason, this site would become hugely more popular overnight.
