Yes, infrequently. Load can be caused by things like forums searches, crawler bots, etc.
I find that if I click on a bunch of articles at once, so they can load as I read other articles, I’ll get that error. If I load 1 new article as I read another 1 from before, I don’t get that error.
I tend to read things on the internet that way - load up all of the sites to read today, or load up all of the “new” messages and then read them one-at-a-time. On this site, I often find that approach backfires with 503 errors.
@SS-GEN Well to be fair, donations here don’t go to supporting TripleA and its lobby/dice servers just the A&A website/forum. So I would encourage players to consider splitting their donation if they post a lot here but use TripleA and its servers as well. You can go to the TripleA website or forum to donate:
It will probably be February/March before I get them hammered out completely (I’m currently arguing about them in the House Rules forum as we speak) but I have a full up set of rules I could send you now. I suspect you would prefer one clean set of rules, so unless you tell me otherwise I’ll send you an email in early March with the full up set of house rules for you to read, play, and react to. As I’ve said before, I never claimed to be the second coming of either Larry Harris or Max Michael. Just somebody who found something to tinker with a long time ago.
Send me one version in March after all modifications have been made… Cheers.
Will do. Just the idea of this coming to pass has me grinning from ear to ear.
I plan to finish stitching the rules back together this weekend and sending you a copy Sunday night. My $50 is still ready if you’re still up for this.
I would like to donate now (and also in the 2017 support drive). I don’t see a donate button and searching or “donate” didn’t help. Please advise.
It will become available on the right side of the screen, just above the “Buy Axis & Allies” block (See there: 2017 Support Drive - Coming Soon!).
What you can do is:
Enter the chat with your respective chat partner.
On the upper right of the chat window click on the arrows symbol to enlarge the chat window.
Scroll to the very beginning of your chat.
Use the search-feature of your browser, then.
how do I gain reputation and how do I create a group?
What is called “Reputation” and how to gain it is explained here:
Concerning “how do I create a group” I can only guess that you maybe mean a ‘chat-group’?
Look here how to do that:
Otherwise please explain what you intend to do. What do you want to create a ‘group’ for?
@djensen apologies I just saw this message now.
I would have some ideas if you wanted to use them to increase interest or activity at aa.org, but if the plan is to help other communites, I’m not certain how best to achieve that, though I love the suggestion from SV.
@Midnight_Reaper Thank you for posting this. I have forked this posting to a separate topic.
Let me just add that it would be great if everybody noticing spam would refrain from commenting on spam postings.
Flagging the spam is totally sufficient to bring admin/moderators into action to remove and purge the dirt.
Further commenting on spam means that we unneccessarily would have to deal with those comments too, that remain somehow isolated when the spam/the spam accounts have been removed.
Thank you all for your help to keep this forum clean.
@akreider2 said in Editing our Posts:
I see I can edit my own posts in this forum if I click on the three dots.
I want to be able to edit my posts in all forums, including the play by forum one.
Actually, I can edit my above post, as well. It is in the Play Boardgames forum that I cannot. And again, it is the mislabeled title that I wish to fix, in this case.
@SS-GEN said in The new forum has been a lot of work and it's not done yet:
I know it’s getting better but I posted a reply for my game report in house rules and with the changes the stuff just gets buried. Somebody post another tread reply and such now you have to go threw every topic to find it. Just sayin.
If I’m understanding correctly, there’s no difference between the old forum and the new forum for this situation. If you post a topic, and a bunch of folks post different topics, your topic will eventually end up on another page unless somebody replies. On forums, “stuff gets buried” all the time.
Also, you absolutely do not have to go through every topic to find your topic. This has come up multiple times, there are tips and tricks that cover this, I added helpers in the navigation bar. Not to be harsh but I’m just not sure what else we’re supposed to do.
Here’s a recap of your options:
Notifications: there is a bell near your avatar on the toolbar. When somebody replies, there will be a red number. Click that and you’ll get all of your notifications.
Replies to your Posts: I literally added this to the toolbar because people were complaining about finding their stuff. It’s the double-left arrow in the nav bar. It’s literally the same as clicking Notifications followed by “See all Notifications”
Recent Topics: Click the clock in the nav bar. Where it says “All Topics” select “Watched Topics” instead. You can even select a category to further narrow it down.
Recent Watched Topics: Click the eye in the nav bar. That will give you “recent” watched topics, including any topic you made or any topic you replied to. (I think I’ll change this to the next one)
All of Your Watched Topics: Go to your profile. Click the 3 dots. Click Watched.
Your Topics: Go to your profile. Click the 3 dots. Click Topics.
Bookmarks: If a particular topic is super important, then click the three dots on a topic, the one next to Reply, Quite, <heart>, < 3 dots> and click Bookmark. To find your bookmarks: Go to your profile. Click the 3 dots. Click Bookmarks.
That 6 ways to find your stuff. The old forums had a stupid icon that was hard to see and made no sense, I think it was a face or something. The replies to your posts was nice but we have that and more.
Note: there’s a bug with your watched topics if you have infinite scrolling turned on. I’ll file it later.
Oh, one more thing. The huge Japanese battleship was called Yamato. Yamamoto was the name of Japan’s most famous admiral. Maybe the arrival of Admiral Yamamoto would indeed correspond to having an extra battleship, but I’m not sure that’s what you intended.
@Imperious-Leader said in Axis & Brollies : Action Cards and Event Cards:
you should set it up with card decks made at “Artscow” or something like it in terms of name. They are sold as long as you set up account and you will earn a bit of change
www.makeplayingcards.com was recently (2019) used successfully by siredblood to produce his “Blood Bath” A&A version card deck - at a resulting fair price for consumers
drivethrucards.com was recently (2018) used successfully by Young Grasshopper to produce his co-deck “Omaha” and “Utah” cards for A&A G’40 - at an absolute steal of a deal for consumers
If you have not already done so, please consider selling your deck(s) at either or both sites - I would love to see you get paid for your work.
Since I had the U.S. naval colors out, I pushed through with the Lexington rebuild.
Here’s the previous look.
Reused everything but the rear structure, boosting the fwd. island about 1.5mm. Rear section fabricated with styrene stock.
Think I might have gone a little to big? Still 100% better. That’s what I get for trying to use the rear of a classic tank turret the first time.
Stay safe all.
@Midnight_Reaper said in 20 Years of Axis & Allies .org:
@CWO-Marc As for what we did and did not have back in 2000, I made a small chart
Great chart, Midnight Reaper; it brings back lots of memories. A further point to note is that, in Classic, only the infantry sculpt was nation-specific and was based on authentic WWII designs; the equipment sculpts started following the same design principle with Europe / Pacific / Revised, though it took a long while to achieve (by combining E1940.2, P1940.2 and 1941) a full array for everyone except France. We were also treated to some neat special-category sculpts: the German blockhouses in D-Day, the American and German trucks in Bulge, and the entirely-other-war sculpt set of 1914. Another nice development in the official games has been the addition of China, Italy, ANZAC and France to the original five powers (US, UK, USSR, Germany and Japan). And in the early days, people who wanted extra types of units (or extra colours to represent other countries) had to make do with third-party products like the Xeno and Table Tactics ones or the Enemy on the Horizon expansion set, the quality of which was uneven and the availability of which wasn’t always great. Things certainly have changed.
