The official social platform for ConsimWorld
[update-1] We have been working all day with the software vendor and our hosting provider on the major outage we experienced overnight (four separate individuals have been on our case). Unfortunately, what we have encountered is still undergoing investigation. While the good news is that all data is safe and backed up, we are still not sure if it's a hardware issue or if it is code-related/possible corruption issue.
Testing continues as we work to diagnose the issue. I am committed in…Continue

I typically get a lot of requests of members asking where they can go to find members that may live near them. My answer is you can try a search under our MEMBERS tab area, which will work so long as the member entered their location in a way you are actively searching. Another option is to click on the MAP tab and see who shows up in your general vicinity.
If you all haven't had the chance yet, I highly recommend you spend a few seconds to click on the MAP tab and edit…Continue
I feel like I'm losing part of my arm with the forum going down. It has become a staple of my life. Well, we hope the upgrade goes well and I thought I'd set-up this blog so folks can share what they will be doing between now and when the forum is back online in a few days (based on our schedule if all goes according to plan). Keep in mind we have the webinar tonight per our news desk announcement, as well as our live chat session tonight that immediately follows it.
A few things going on that I want to make sure you are all aware of!

Okay, I notice a lot of iOS game talk over on BoardGameGeek. Does anyone know if someone is working on a ZunTzu/Cyberboard/Vassal like gaming platform on iOS for the iPad. That day must be coming....
I checked in this morning and found some recent blog posts missing and having to re-verify some new member requests. I think the ning network (this service) may have lost some data over the last three days -- which is the first time this has happened that I can recollect. I'll let you all know what response I get in the meantime as I didn't see any alert from them about lost data. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. If you submitted a membership in the last 2-3 days and don't appear to be…Continue

Thought it would be nice to share any stories of games folks received over the Holiday season. Whether you treated yourself or bought from a loved one, share your story with us. I'll kick things off by stating I received one game this year to help bring our kids together for the holiday -- Ticket to Ride. Yup, not a consim title, per se, but something the kids really enjoyed.
What new games are you now enjoying at your home? And are you…Continue
