    Sorry for the delay but it's finally launched. Due to the delay I'm giving all of the 2016 Patrons an extra week and a half to receive the discount. For 2016 Patrons, the discount will be applied at checkout.

    Thank you for your support.

    Just bought my golden IS-2 to say 'Thank you for this great website' once again!


  • 2018 2017 2016

    Got an error message dj, but think I have paid. Sent you an e-mail. Let me know if I need to try to pay again.

    BTW - you may want to look at your opening post which contains some confusion between 2016 and 2017.

    David, I just purchased a gold badge to support the forums and sent you an e-mail with my e-mail and username. 🙂

    Thanks,

    I am new to this hobby and have been lurking here learning from all of you fine folks.  Just contributed and making my first post to show my support and thanks for all the great discussion here.

    Cheers!


  • TripleA Admin

    Thanks everybody. Since there a ton of these coming in. I'm going to assign all the badges once per day. The time of day will vary but will either be the first or last thing I do daily.  😄

    So since I do not have a badge I guess you did not get my payment?

    Welcome to the forums dajokr. Always cool to have new members. 🙂

    Thanks!  Glad to be here.  I got back into the game about a year ago.  Bought all the current games, found a classic MB on eBay, and even picked up a few of the nice addons from HBG/IWNGU like IPC chips and dice.  I was only able to play one game of global (tripping all over the rules the whole time) but it was a blast!  I think I must have spend days watching Young Grasshopper's videos on YouTube.

    Took a life break to move to Japan (I'm a US Naval officer) and am starting to pick it back up again.  Just bought a whole bunch of custom battle pieces from HBG and I'm looking for some playing partners.  Also tracked down a VG copy of AA50 on eBay for a not-too-outrageous price, so I aim to get into that one too.

    I've actually been playing 1941 solo the past few weeks, trying out different strategies and working my way back through the rules.  I will soon move on to 1942SE and AA50.

    All of the people on this board are extremely helpful, even with the questions that could have been answered by 17 seconds of reading the rule book. 😉

    I have also enjoyed all of the customizations here.  In particular, I have really appreciated the work of Young Grasshopper and Siredblood.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone around.

    That is awesome. Thank you for your service. There is a lot of talented people on this website. I learned to paint my pieces, because of the help from members, on this forum, so don't hesitate to ask questions.

    I'm also a piece junkie and have almost everything HBG has to offer. I've filled, 15 of the plano fishing tackle boxes, full of pieces, and I've found all the axis and allies games through ebay, so I know what your talking about, lol. 😄

    Well it seems my first attempt to buy a gold badge has failed as that badge is not showing on my posts.

    I am feeling discouraged by dj's failure to answer any of my attempts to clarify whether that is the fact, either in this thread, or by PM or by e-mail. When I get my bank statements I will double check and then decide whether to try again.

    I enjoy this forum, so I might offer a lower level of support regardless.

    My apologies for a not very positive post amongst all the demonstrations of support, but by being open with this I might just encourage an improvement.

    Sorry PrivatePanic, but I have to come clean… I told djensen that anything that Brit offered for Patron support, i'd double it if he didn't attach the badge to your name... it's how we Yanks operate, sorry.

    Thanks for the work on the forums.

    Ive met tirano, siparo, imperious leader at gencon.

    Ive spoken to young grasshopper and black elk on the phone.  Ive recruited hambone, josh randel, trev, and others who already lived in kc, some who are experts and some who havent played since Original.

    Many times beat and lost to Bob Roby, two time gencon tourney winner!

    Many times i have beaten and lost to my former student, now teacher, Dave Marts

    No doubt it helped me become a better player and meet my goals

    A community is what you make it, the league, the national tourneys, the supporters and the rest.  kudos to Dave Jensen and Greg Smorey for being huge boosters.

    Good Luck Have Fun,

    Ill see you in Indy!


  • 2016

    And I've made my pledge for 2017… as long as my badge shows up before that Brit's does, i'll be happy!


  • 2018 2017 2016

    You are probably on a safe one there Wolf. My willingness to financially support an organisation that cannot be bothered to reply to me is NOT increasing by the day! :roll:

    On a more serious note, did you try PM'ing him directly?  Maybe that would work… (you'll still probably have to double the bribe that I did to prevent your badge from showing up)


  • 2018 2017 2016

    Yes I did Wolf. Also an e-mail. Plus about 4 posts in this thread.

    Sigh… I am sorry for your troubles... I hadn't pledged previously, but I had noticed some folks with 2017 badges, so I went ahead and did my cheapo Bronze pledge (single dad with limited funds and all).

    If your frustrations continue and you want to come to the US to look for him and demand your badge, you're welcome to do a stop-over in Pensacola, where you can swiftly have your British forces arses handed to them by my Goose-Stepping Germans in a round of 1942.

    An invitation that is almost too good to miss. Almost ….. 😄
