The Banding News
We got forums!
I have set up a web discussion system, it can be found in the top menu as Forum
. It should provide a smoother experience to people wanting to talk about the game and their variants, than the Usenet gateway
also present here on the site. For the die hard News fans - this web forum can do threading, too :) I also noticed there's a serious chatter in the Ladder comments, so the character unrelated parts of it could move to Forum, where they will be much more visible. People desiring their own variant's subforums are welcome, too.
