great guest editorial!!! i like where the new recruit who wasn't around for flame wars and never saw the flame wars here, knows enough about flame wars to declare their omission a wonderful thing. wonder how he feels about the sneaky underhanded way it was done under the guise of a "joke" by an admin that was/is a figment of someone's imagination, and how he feels about some of the truly great threads that you can't even visit to see some of the great posts... yeah... let's solicit opinions from members about things they don't even know, as long as the further the CC kool-aid consumption... wow...-0

p.s.- a very nice pro CC article from a "member" with 1 completed game, and zero ongoing as of now... another made up CC Member?

Hooray for elfish_lad's mighty 4 posts! It's like reading an article written by a student that's been asked to comment on the Roman invasion of Western Europe, you weren't there so just exactly how are you expected to KNOW what it was like? How can you articulate what it was like to have the Roman legions marching through your village/town on the edict of this 'Emperor' that you've never heard of before? Particularly from a perspective that is skewed by 2000 years of history that's undoubtedly also been coloured by political bias.

Simply put, you can't.

This is not a criticism of you Elf, it's a criticism of the newsletter editorial team for picking you to pass comment on something you can't reasonably be expected to give an informed opinion on.

In My Humble Opinion
This is an attempt to gloss over the dissatisfaction of the forum visiting public with the removal of forums deemed by the management to be 'unsafe' and 'likely to cause controversy/trouble(possibly of a legal persuasion)'.

I hope to be interviewed by archeology magazine this month. I will tell them how I know nothing about actual digs, but liked to dig in the sand on family vacations to the beach. I am sure my level of expertise will have the editor's chomping at the bit to get me involved.

Also if there is a tournament section in the CC news, why is there a separate tourney newsletter? Maybe they should all be combined, in order to actually make ONE newsletter rather than several.

oops, my bad, i looked up elf. regardless, i am sticking by my half-cocked comments, because they are still mostly correct/true, excluding the number of games played...-0

p.s.-brett, i am more well versed in the art of sandbox play, due to having a 5 year old. however, we tend to build dams and atom smashers in his box... guess i'll submit an article to popular mechanics...

There's also a Foundry section. They're both in the CC Newsletter so that people who only read this one can get information about the other areas of the site they don't visit. I'm going to keep it shorter than it has been in the past so that it doesn't look like a partial copy of the actual Tournament Newsletter.

WidowMakers says goodbye
A bit of sad news in this issue, as we bid a tearful goodbye to the great mapmaker WidowMakers. He's been around since '06 and has pumped out 20 of the greatest maps that CC has seen in its 3-and-a-half-year history.

Hmm,im now 3 month retire from MapFoundry,and you dont put single word in Newsletter abouth that. Well its good to see how people care for mine work here,another good reason why im retire from map making.

If you didn't know, qwert, maker of your favorite WWII maps and Europe 1914, as well as the new Peloponnesian War map, is leaving the Foundry in exasperation of the long process. We all know he'll be missed, as it seems there's no persuading him to remain and keep pumping out great maps for CC.

All you guys do is complain, at least some of us are trying to make a positive contribution to the community, the negative posts that always come from you, is probably the main reason why people don't use the forums. If you don't have something positive or constructive to say, how about leaving your thoughts to yourself.

Furthermore, elfish_lad sent that article to me asking if i would put it in the newsletter, i did not go to him asking if he'd give a new recruits perspective.
