Wargaming blogs should be on the Blogs of war board.

And there is the Other wargaming web sites board as well under the General Boards.

POLL DESCRIPTION
Currently, in most of the major forum interest areas, there is usually a division into:
(blank) Discussion
for discussing wargaming and associated history
(blank) Media
for discussing books, films, boardgames, computer games, and other media
Should the definition of 'media' be broadened to include webpages?

Up until now, discussions about webpages – such as an article about some battle – have been placed on the Discussion board.

Should they be moved to the Media boards?

Or do webpages, ephemeral as they can be, rise to the level of 'media' for our purposes?

Is a blog article 'media'?

Is a news item 'media'?

I'm concerned that if media gets defined too broadly, then everything falls under 'media'.
