Greetings all.


With the roll out of 8th edition, we have decided to start rolling out some changes to the B&C as well. We had wanted these to coincide with things like updated software and a repaired server but as ever, Real LifeĀ®, comes first and as such some of the more technical aspects of the site are going to have to limp along for a tad bit longer. You can still help get us there by DONATING to the cause.



First, we have update our Forum Rules. Good a time as any to refresh yourselves with them.


Brought on New Staff



and are looking to update B&C101, The Mission Statement and MOD101 for starters.


In addition to all this we still have the planned technical updates (time permitting) to bring the server back to full operational power. This would also entail and update from the current IPB suite to IPB suite 4.2.x


We have a new skin ready for this (not a huge change from the current one mind you -- or is it?)


Perhaps the largest change (and one that has been hotly debated here for close to a decade) is the inclusion of = XENOS Forum =. This includes requisite LIBER sections for your DIY XENOS armies and army list forums.


Beyond that, XENOS are now permissible in the entirety of THE FORGE.


Currently the +MODERATI+ Group will be sharing moderator duties in these forums but as time progresses we know great members of this community will stand out as excellent material for being mods of the various XENOS forums.


As with anything on the B&C, this is all subject to change.


We will adjust/add/delete forums as both 8th edition develops and as the new forums themselves develop. This all to help maintain the great community that the members here have built. We know that same spirit that has grown and changed over the last 18 years will make the new XENOS related forums just as excellent as the rest of the board.


IN ADDITION, DUE TO THIS LARGE CHANGE, WE ARE OPENING UP DISPLAY NAME CHANGES FOR 60 DAYS!! JUST IN CASE YOU ARE ACTUALLY XENOS SCUM AND WANT TO BARE THAT BRAND IN THESE HALLOWED HALLS. ;)



Thank you all for your support as always.
