    Okay, I have taken the online gaming a bit further, I am hoping this might attract some new younger members into the forum not just to play games but think a bit about the forums main reason for being here.

    I am also hoping that it may interest the *cough* older forum members (my dad included) to have a bit of fun!

    So what I have done is for a two month period only as a trial is to set up a nice server at a cost to me to see how much interest it generates.

    The server is fully patched with a game panel to play about every war game out there, Call of Duty, Wolfenstien Enemy Territory and all the others you would expect.

    So what I need is some members to test drive the new server and play some games to make sure I have it all configured properly.

    So if your interested let me know by posting in here and also state what games you have to play.

    I would like to encourage Wolfenstien Enemy Territory players as its free and those that dont want to rush out and spend their cash on games will be able to use Wolf ET to join in.

    Let me know your thoughts!

    Interesting development Lee, one which should further interest in the Forum. Have you ever considered adding something for modellers?

    Cheers, Gerry

    Very much so Gerry, I have noticed that there are a lot of modellers out there and although not my cup of tea I am very interested in often looking over the sites that specialise in it.

    I will give this some thought. Appreciate your feedback as always though in terms of how it should be set up.

    Lee, my modelling days are over - when active it was confined railway layouts for our oldest boys! However, modelling has a huge following in various fora: perhaps the largest, http://www.armorama.com/ has nearly 49,000 topics posted to date.

    Perhaps a survey as to interest would be useful. I certainly will be more than happy to help in the setting up if the demand is there.

    Sincerely,

    Gerry

    Ok, let me canvas some opinion and we can take it from there, I know a modeller who might be interested in helping us out on this.

    Yea. It would be very nice if you would post the servers IP adress as it comes on-line. I am quite sure there are lots of people out there waiting for this big moment. I wish you good luck and hope that this would be a success.

    Oh, I wont be openly posting the servers IP address, this is not a public server, it is only for members, although the games will be password protected.

    At this moment gaming is by invitation only. Once we are happy that its all tested we will then advise the wider membership how to access it.

    Okay. Understood. Afterall it would not be nice if those "Unwanted" players would show up.
