Who would be interested in a board specifically dedicated to the Ottoman Wars?

John the OFM15 Feb 2013 7:12 a.m. PST

I have no interest in it, but see no reason why we sould not have one.

Sysiphus15 Feb 2013 7:14 a.m. PST

I would like a board devoted to this topic.

Old Contemptibles Supporting Member of TMP15 Feb 2013 7:26 a.m. PST

Only if you include Mel Gibson as a member.



Better yet, Peter O'Toole as a member. My drinking buddy.

If not then I oppose all new boards except for the ones I like.

So I say no to you sir!

I would be interested in one.

Personal logo Extra Crispy Sponsoring Member of TMP15 Feb 2013 7:32 a.m. PST

Which ones?

mgdavey15 Feb 2013 7:40 a.m. PST

I'd like a board devoted to Ottomans. I mean the foot-stools.

MichaelCollinsHimself15 Feb 2013 7:48 a.m. PST

1460`s through to WW1
….against Venice, in the C16th & C17th against Hungary, Poland, C18th & C19th wars with Austria & Russia, against Napoleon and Russia & Britain… also fought with the Mamelukes and with Russians again in the 19th…
20th century sided with axis of Germany/Austrian lots to choose from and so that`s why this is cross-posted to all these groups.

Yes – would be a good thing.

CPBelt15 Feb 2013 9:11 a.m. PST

I already have a hard enough time finding stuff here. Please don't give Bill any more ideas!

KTravlos15 Feb 2013 10:15 a.m. PST

Nope. The period boards cover it adequately.

Inkpaduta15 Feb 2013 10:17 a.m. PST

A no for me.

Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut15 Feb 2013 10:22 a.m. PST

Yes! My favorite post-Ancients genre!

Druzhina15 Feb 2013 3:50 p.m. PST

No. Too many boards!
Only things I'm not interested in should have their own board.

Illustrations of Ottomans

Waco Joe15 Feb 2013 5:18 p.m. PST

As much as I like the subject I would vote no. It does not fit the current cataloging scheme.

CPBelt15 Feb 2013 6:08 p.m. PST

We need an Ottoman board like this lady needs another pair of shoes:


KaweWeissiZadeh15 Feb 2013 10:16 p.m. PST

From the amount of Ottoman related posts I've seen: no
For the sake of camel-artillery: yes

Kadrinazi16 Feb 2013 1:36 a.m. PST

I can't see a point for that.

Only after we get an Austrian Succession board and a Jacobite board!

princeman16 Feb 2013 3:48 p.m. PST

Why not? Does it hurt to add a new item? I can only imagin that this will add to everyones awareness of this period. Are we afraid to learn something new?

huevans01116 Feb 2013 7:07 p.m. PST

It's too small and specific a topic. If there was sufficient interest in Middle Eastern and South Asian warfare, I could see a general board on those topics.

But let's face it There isn't the interest, the volume of posts or the available resource material to justify it.

Old Contemptibles Supporting Member of TMP16 Feb 2013 10:27 p.m. PST

No, it will not add to everyones awareness of the period(s). Just the opposite. Because it will only get two posts a month if that. If you are not already interested in it, then you will not go to that board.

If you want to increase everyones awayness then don't segregate it to another board where no one will ever read it.

It is bad enough having rules specific boards but now someone wants a nation specific board covering many periods! Makes no sense whatsoever. Whats next a board, dedicated to all the wars Belgium participated in every period? That can get out of hand quickly.

Why not? Does it hurt to add a new item? I can only imagin that this will add to everyones awareness of this period. Are we afraid to learn something new?
I'm sufficiently interested in furniture that I'll look at Ottoman threads in the period fora I follow, but not enough to look at an Ottoman-centric forum. If a such is created, stuff I might otherwise have seen will end getting posted there and not crossposted anywhere, and so I'll miss it.

Which isn't necessarily a problem for me, but it certainly wouldn't add to my awareness of things Ottoman.

le Grande Quartier General16 Feb 2013 11:34 p.m. PST

I think John the OFM said it first, best. Good heavens, what discussion needs more convolution? Retreat!!!

colin knight17 Feb 2013 3:48 a.m. PST

It would get a few topics at first first then months would go by with nothing new to say.

Sandinista19 Feb 2013 1:22 p.m. PST

There is this link

xenophon20 Feb 2013 6:23 a.m. PST

Why not? If someone does not want to read the discussions they can always avoid it.

Grand Duke Natokina20 Feb 2013 1:38 p.m. PST

Boy, Imelda Marcos sure got short and fat.

jony66321 Feb 2013 3:29 p.m. PST

I do mostly Ottomans for Nap and WWI. I see no reason to have a community just for their wars.

Archeopteryx02 Apr 2013 9:52 a.m. PST

Yes please!

Slappy Supporting Member of TMP02 Apr 2013 12:45 p.m. PST

Perhaps dark age board before a piece of furniture? I mean seriously guys!

MichaelCollinsHimself02 Apr 2013 10:58 p.m. PST

To the question:

"Who would be interested in a board specifically dedicated to the Ottoman Wars?"

A total of 28 posters so far.

10 people understood the question and answered it:
8 said: "Yes"
2 said: "Conditionally a yes"

13 Said: "No"

In addition there were:
6 "spoiled papers" (with jokes & odd comments)


Grand Duke Natokina03 Apr 2013 10:10 a.m. PST

Okay, MCH, I would vote no.

MichaelCollinsHimself03 Apr 2013 12:29 p.m. PST

So we have 14 negatives now and one less "spoiled paper", but then the original question was only looking for the number of "yes" votes anyway :-)

Marcus Maximus03 Apr 2013 10:31 p.m. PST

Yes please

janner05 Apr 2013 12:33 p.m. PST

If there are enough threads to make it worthwhile, then why not. However, we don't seem to be overwhelmed by them so far…

So a no from me too for now :-)
