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 Life®, 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. msn-wink.gif

 

Thank you all for your support as always. 

 

 

-- The Staff

... really? We're breaking that fundamental rule now? Huh.

 

If we're being quite honest, I'm not a fan of the fact we're allowing Xenos... but changing times, I guess. I dunno. I'll have to reflect on it some more.

Now we can be the best 40k site for every faction, not just the previous B&C selections. And no more shutting down threads and or removing pics because a xenos was in the background.

Fair enough, I guess. But... it does take a bit away from what made the B&C special, IMHO. A forum for Humanity first and foremost (or pure Power Armor in the old days.) That's what our community was built on, to an extent.

 

Like I said... I don't like it. That's my gut reaction. Doesn't mean I won't accept it, and, perhaps, over time, come to appreciate it.. But... I do need time to reflect and mull it over a bit.

Believe me, this very discussion has been played out several times among the mods and admins, and many had your same reaction. We expect a lot of the members will too, but this decision was not made lightly and we think it will be better for the board as a whole once the shock wears off.

In hindsight, the release of Genestealer Cults made this kinda inevitable, no? There's now a Human faction that is inextricably tied to a Xenos faction. The initial decision to not have a GSC forum must have played heavily into his debate.

Genestealer Cults was definitely one of the triggers.

So when some call him tyrant, world-burner, apostate and butcher, remember this: He commanded armies on a hundred worlds and spanned cursed stars where saints would fear to tread, and in doing so held back the night. Monster he may have been, but he was ours and I for one thank the God-Emperor for him." - Inquistor Marr, Speaking of Lord-Errant Cromhal, Supreme Commander of the Aegisine Crusade, M.39

I legit thought this was a prank until I saw the forums down below. Crazy, but awesome. My only reason for not wanting a xenos army is cause I couldn't share it with my favorite community, now I can.

Monolith, you make a good point! We have updated the rules of the board to help with that very thing and I urge everyone to look over them because some types of behavior that was previously tolerated no longer will be.

Not a fan, but it's not really our decision to make, so it is what it is.

 

I just hope there is swift and immediate action for any of the stupid "oh no another marine release" and similar comments that we all come here to get away from. Kind of sick of sitting through 6+ months of xenos or chapter-that-you-can't-use release and then have some jackass tell me I should be thankful that Deathwatch got a release or something.

With the community we have, and the fact that ALL the Mods have jurisdiction in the Xenos forums for now, I expect that the ones that will benefit the most from this will be the current membership. I realise the fear that this might make B&C much like other general 40k sites but I think we can make this work. And by 'we', I mean all of us.

Wow. 

 

I immerse myself in Warhammer Live's 24-hour day long extravaganza for the release of the new 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000

and I return to the hallowed halls of the Bolter & Chainsword and find this? eek.gif ohmy.png

 

Wow. What strange portal in the Warp have I traveled through? 

 

I'm a zombie, an anachronism, a Flying Dutchman, a dead gamer fifteen years dead

Change is everywhere, rampant, and the next generation of gamers are a "purer breed". 

 

Wow. 

 

The time has come. I know it in my soul.

I cannot escape my duty to the Bolter & Chainsword.

I don my armour and weapons. My destiny calls, and I go.

The Forge will not be divided.

 

Any particular reason? We've already got an issue with log overload. It makes more sense to simply split them into three for ease of use.

This will inevitably happen in the N&R section, but it'll be easier to police in the subs.
