I'm still hoping the General threads can rise up to the top of the forum again one day :)
Its place is really just below news.

counter/register

Hi folks, can anyone remind me how I set up a counter that I can increment each turn. When it reaches a certain value I can fire an event - I know there is
a way of doing this!

Thanks,

General discussions forum

Hi folks, I think there is a case for the General discussions forum to be placed back up at the top of the page underneath news. The Halloween thread didn't do well this year - not necessarily due to the forum change but a few people that PMd me with a quiz answer mentioned the fact that they hadn't...

Only four names in the hat this year. A poor turnout but a worthy winner! As far as the clues go – they were not easy. But a quiz with difficult clues is a rare thing these days. Not such a bad thing I think. The name of the young lady mentioned could be found by the filename of the photo R...

Last bump!

I should say that the Halloween prizes also have an American Civil War
theme so if you are interested in that then you still have time to enter.
If you are already in the pot but have no interest then PM me and I
will desecrate your entry.
