Member location

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…

Forum Offline -- Group Hug Time

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.

Anyone…

Checking on possible lost content

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…

What Gaming Gifts did you receive?

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…
