A chat room. The Guards Conterattack game would benefit from one.

I would be proud to run it again, with my able assistant, Cap Teancum.
If we do, can I be called moderator?

I'm genuinely thinking about creating a Mess Hall area within the Barracks, but we won't be needing a Moderator for it.

Perhaps a sub forum about all types of military rank, decorations, ribbons and medals given throughout the ages!

Could it be possible to even include the types of ensigns and markings used on vehicles, planes and ships as well?

There is an article series in the magazine about decorations and a forum to tie in with that would make sense - it could encompass some of what you list above.

Actual reviews and information, instead of the ubiquitous "posted link" without commentary so popular with some. Posting the link indicates the person went there and should have formed at least a rudimentary opinion of the content they are plugging.

All ACG reviews are posted on the front page of the main site and the link you refer to in the forums is merely a pointer to that review. You'll note that lately all our articles include the option to comment (like in a blog) but that it's wholly integrated into the forums - so any blog-type comments appear in the forums here and any forum comments appear in the article itself.

Maybe I am blind and just haven't seen it, but I was wondering about something on the Revolutionary war and the making of the USA. (articles of confederation, etc.)

The Revolutionary War occured during the Napoleonic Era...

Discussion of it has never been discouraged in The Colonial Era & Asia, as well.

This is not to say that its day may not come...

What about adding a casino or an arcade. I have friends in a clan that has Army System 2.2 on there site. I think that would be cool. I guess it's a game based in the Medival age or something and you get to pick from a group of species I guess you could say. You use the casino to get money to buy weapons, upgrade unit production, upgrade defenses and etc. and then you attack ppl for money as well.

If you guys think it's a good idea I'll ask them where they got it.

I wish you guys would hurry up and get that PDA/simple version of the forums out of "testing". All the little envelope graphics, etc bog down the loading times, when all I want to do is read and make posts. I currently have all sigs and avatars and ranks off and it still not fast enough.
