Welcome Comrades to the 29th edition of the Dispatch! :)

This week we have an interview with the admins, with answers direct from lackattack and AndyDufresne we hope you enjoy what they've put together! :)

This week saw a surge in tournament participation since the new Tournament Database was released! I'm told some tournaments have been filled in less than 30hrs!

Today we say farewell to one of our long time reporters, thenobodies80. He has been with us from the very beginning and has done a phenomenal job, we wish him well as he now moves on to bigger and better things =D> Taking his place as Foundry Team Leader is natty_dread who i'm sure will do great things with the foundry section! :)

Also jpcloet will be sadly leaving the newsletter after being here from the very beginning, but it's all for a good reason, that is so he can dedicate more of his time to making clans bigger, better and more exciting than ever before for Conquer Club! Taking his place as Clan Team Leader is laughingcavalier who has shown himself to be a dedicated clanophile (is that a word?) and i'm sure he will do an awesome job! :)

We also welcome 3 new reporters onboard this issue! BoganGod, MarshalNey and Hopscotcher have recently become Clan, Foundry and Tournament reporters respectively! Please make them welcome =D>

We hope you enjoy this weeks issue!

This article is not very full as most of my work has been put into the first 3 tournament announcements that have been recently released. If you want to see the crowning piece, just check out the New tab at the top of the page! \:D/ Amazzony has put together some quotes about College Sports Tournaments, so be sure to read that before enjoying the new database.

Hi everyone! The Foundry section is going through some changes. Firstly, our beloved long time team leader thenobodies80 is stepping down from the leadership of the news team, to concentrate more on other duties. He will remain in the news team as a reporter, while I, natty_dread take the leadership of the team. I hope to lead the Foundry section to a new era of glory and Foundry reporting. Also, we welcome a new reporter, MarshalNey, to the news team.

These last two weeks have been hectic also in the Foundry. There are changes to the organization of the forums, some ongoing improvement by the moderators, and new cartographers appointed to the team. Of which you can read more in the news below... We also have dolomite13's history article, another special foundry article by me, and of course the latest maps in development. Have fun! ;)

Erratum: when I said Generation One was famous for it's mapmakers I did of course mean famous for its tourney organizers. Apologies g1

Cup Scores are outdated by quite a few days.
Wish the admins would've picked some of the serious questions, too, rather than all the "banana spank" ones.

Yes, it's not like there were a lot of serious questions asked there. We were hopeful for some serious answers/insight into the admins and running of CC. Of course, based on the fact that there were lots of terrible questions asked we shouldn't be surprised that the interview was as pointless as it was.

Considering the questions you've asked clapper in the latest interview with a moderator such as "what do you think of panda porn", I don't know if you can see the hypocrisy in that statement. We sent all the questions asked to the admin and the best of a bad lot were selected for answering. There is no point complaining, the admins answered what the CC users asked. :roll:

I screwed up my original statement. Let me restate myself:

Based on the number of serious questions vs terrible questions asked of the admins, it's no surprise that there are not very many insightful answers. It's a shame the community didn't give better questions, and the admins didn't choose to more fully answer some of the good ones that were posted.

As far as panda porn goes - what happens in live chat doesn't always stay in live chat. That's all I'm saying.
