    Any way to ignore the Usenet forums? I just loaded up the TG site to find 1300 new posts?

    There will be, yes...

    I have just gotten the feed working and am doing a bit of testing. I will be making some changes to the site in a couple hours that will separate the new posts from the new usenet posts.

    The biggest problem right now is just the initial propigation. Once the existing content in the newsgroups are sucked in there won't be nearly as many new posts the next time you log in. But once you read all the new TG posts, make good use of the "Quick Links > Mark Forums Read" link in the top menu... :)

    Look for an official announcement regarding the USENET integration tonight as well! Not only are we able to retrieve and read USENET posts but we will also be able to post directly to the USENET groups from within the TG forums.

          Very nice to hear. I was a heavy USENET reader a couple years ago, but that died down quite a bit in the past 16-18 months. It will be nice to pull in some USENET feeds and be able to read/post all from the Tactical Gamer site.

              Re: Usenet

              I just changed to a different newsfeed provider. The one I had previously integrated with insisted on putting their own footers at the bottom of all messages posted through the feed. I promptly dropped them and have picked up a new feed provider.

              As a result of this change it is possible that there MAY be a duplicate of some of the messages in the USENET groups. But this will only be a one-time event and will be resolved shortly.

                Will we be able to post to these groups from here?

                3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

                  Absolutely.. Posting rights have not yet been activated by our provider for the TG feed, but they should be active shortly.

                        Posting rights will be limited to Supporting Members only, I hope? I'd hate to see people registering here just to abuse our USENET setup...

                              Posting rights still have not been approved. I've opened a trouble ticket with the feed provider to see what the deal is, but if you've posted in the groups already it is likely that the posts will NOT go out to USENET until this issue has been resolved.

                              I'm not sure if they will propigate automatically once the upstream feed is allowed or if they will need to be re-posted. But I'll be sure to let you know as soon as I do.
