I can't go because of the ridiculous holiday booking system I have at work. I work weekends and nights, so I have to book a week off at least in order to be semi human and not surly and rude at the event. I have to book it up to a year and a quarter in advance to have the best shot at getting what I want. This year I guessed and book time off in August, but the meet up got moved to october.....
I play 40k. I want to attend the meetup. I don't really want to play against tournie lists. I just want to roll dice, and have a chuckle.

I've looked and its already an Event+ Announcement,Spack is ridiculously busy real world and I don't think any other admins or mods can modify how the 'last active post' system logs (or add the link banner into the coding of the top bit of website), but the way the site works is very open to bump abuse its inevitable that just with 3+ proper posts a week this will vanish.I'm not going to log in everyday just to link to something about Mansfield. :lol:

Can't get my head around recoding the forum top block to make sure this always pops up until dead, but I have tweaked the home page mod to shove the topic at the top as an announcement. I'll see if I can figure something out for the last post mod too, maybe have an announcements block and the current topics block separate.

EDIT: OK, fudged it for now, it'll show up to 1 announcement at the top, then the rest with non-announcement posts.

Work is stupidly busy right now, 2 days behind on a major project and a looming deadline on part of it of midnight tonight. Outside of work there are things going on I can't discuss at the moment, but might be able to post some brief details in the coming weeks. Chances are some of you already suspect what that might be ...

It seems we may have enough to put a team forward, have we decided what is happening? I suggest we go for an AoS vs RWI tournie. 12 a side in a something like a etc event each team has a captain and the team chooses who plays who but each player can only play an opposite number once. Each captain takes turns putting a player forward declaring the army type but not the details of the list, the opposite team then decides who with face that opponent.

Each side trys to win points for their team standing but is also competing for individual honours like best general most blood thirsty and best team play.

note first one offers a promo code if you are gaming.
I have no experience with either, but the northern lot have stayed at one or the other..can't remember which.. Bane talked about the travellodge as a chain..don't know if thats where they ended up.

I'm not sure about tournaments.. we do seem to be forming a pattern of forum guilt not liking tourneys poll, then relying on them and other places to get any bums on seats..because the pub is empty and the brewery is calling time. At some point we're going to have to beg Stunty to resurrect his planned battle of the forums, and just accept that people who consist of some occasional maybes in a 30 person event lose out. How do we break the cycle, stunty having to haggle other groups into playing us last minute puts a big burden on him and his talks aren't going absolutely smoothly this time.

The pub mentality is we each play a game against each other on the saturday, all 6-8 of us.. and then play some crazy randomness.. having subhired out the other tables for people to use as they wish.
The tourney mentality is its a proper full blooded tourney, where I don't get suckered into holding back, because we need the numbers...again (and we remember that this is how we do things now)

I am not really afterva tournie tbh, but I do feel that will pull the most people in from RWI, especially if we have a decent prize like before. A narrative thing requires more work to pull together and really only attracts fluff players which they seems less and less of. The idea behind the etc idea is that it requires less result management that before as the organiser does not need to run a swiss system and just needs to record no of games won per team per player and VPS per player.

However I can't even guarantee I will be there, so I am happy to take part in anything if I do actually get there, knowing sooner than later would be good tho.
