Pining...just remember, the mods there, are the same mods here.  So while the rules we have developed here are different then the rules in place at wargamer, I'd say you still should avoid insulting the mods in either forum.  We are just following the rules and instructions as determined by the site owners. 

Anyway, good to see you here. Have fun.

Slight correction - some of the mods here are the same as there.

The statement about ownership is correct - we run things differently here.

But in the end, asking why is less important than the results. If you see something here you don't like, let us know. We'll do our best to figure out what's wrong and correct it.

In the mean time, let's have some fun.

Everyone naked and into the pool!

Oh wait, that probably falls under the category of  "too much gay talk".

Mirth, for a brief moment I imagined we were at a big party with tons of chicks and it was all just fine. So I knew what you meant.

As much as I love this place. It could use some chicks.

What I meant was, the only two mods left at the wargamer are both mods here. That's all.

Just a thought, but perhaps one way to recruit more non-XY-chromosomal members to the forum might be to stop referring to them as "chicks"

Good point.

Guys, from now on we're calling chicks "hotties."

Instead of "non-XY-chromosomal members", I recommend "XXX-chromosomal members".

Slam hounds?

Seriously, I think in order to attract more women, we need to stop talking about wargames.

When do we talk about wargames?
