Welcome back freestyle readers. I've got another Scum Insider for you all, new writer StubbsKVM has a report about his SoC game, and Great-Ollie talks about clans, Canada, and hockey. You Stay Classy, CC.
Greetings Conquer Club clan members and enthusiasts, to another fine edition of the Platoon Report, where once again we've got all the news you need on CC's major clan events! IcePack kicks things off this week with a look at CC4, where the Round of 32 matches are mostly decided at this point. Next up, betiko returns with our first look in a while at the goings on in the Random League. Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about Clan League 5. Qwert has a great summary for us of stats from Phase 1, as well as updated standings for each League. The updated F400 returns to the Platoon Report - and there's a lot of movement throughout the middle of the ranks!
Last but not least, go check out the 3rd 1v1 Clan Challenge Prediction Contest. Entries are being accepted now that the bracket is set - survey the field of clans involved and make your picks here!
Enjoy, and good luck out there on all your fields of battle!
Hello friends, and welcome to your favourite part of the Newsletter, "War Games", where you can find information about CC Tournaments, and other stuff in the Tournament scene!
In this issue, amidst our busy work and holiday schedules, our writers faithfully deliver our usuals to the table with DaveH's Tournament Tips and TPA Wrap, as well as my Join This? Or Not! section.
Sadly, I cannot happily advertise any 'Extras! Extras!' for you to read all about in this issue. In fact, the Tournament Section is in dire lack of writers, with just 2 of us on the team. So if you would like to volunteer as a writer for the Tournament Section of the CC Dispatch - whether on a regular or ad-hoc basis - do please drop me a PM! We could definitely do with some help, no matter how small! (:
As always we have some great activity in the foundry. Some first time map makers enter the scene, and CC's Greatest Mapmaker, cairnswk, makes his return, dusting off 4 of his next masterpieces which were on hold. Waauw brings us a great review and strategy discussion for the BETA map Conquer 500, and I have asked my outside friend Mas Sue67 to help review some maps for us moving forward, let me apologize in advance.

The fact that are of your posts are dated June 16th is very deceptive!
Yeah, that's the date the template was made. Unfortunately, when you use the Copy Topic command it copies it intact including the date stamps. We put the correct date in the title; that's the best we can do.
Before this we used to squeeze the whole newsletter into a single post, and we had a dynamic template that could be used to create new posts with the current date. Unfortunately, the newsletter has outgrown the single-post format, and Move Topic and Copy Topic are the only tools we have for working with a multi-post thread.
We do have a newer template that we're going to use for Issue 100, so it will be fairly recent, but after that the templates will gradually get older and older again.
Okay, this works on vBulletin type forums, so you could try it here.
After creating your topic, lock it so no one can post in it (otherwise they will get to be the OP), create new post (can just say "test" or something.) Merge first and second (last) post together, but use the time stamp of the second where it gives the option. Reopen thread. I sometimes use a reverse of this if I am transferring ownership of a thread to someone.
No guarantees it will work on this type of forum, but there you go. Worth a shot!
EDIT: Since you have more than one post, you may have to do that for each of them. Thought it was one post that had the wrong timestamp.
