Nobody seems to be posting here!

Seemed to be much more traffic when everything was on the message boards.

It is now :)

Yes it works but few people stop off in the Rule Forum Ghetto.

It would be much better to just have a DBX board in the general Medieval/Fantasy/Ancients area.

Some how Warhammer/Bolt Action/FOW still get on the general topic boards.

It seems to work 9 to 5 and hard for the money.

Par for the course, I'm afraid.
I took a tour of the rule-specific boards just out of curiosity, and a good many of them are tumbleweed accumulation facilities.

Apart from anything else, DBA in particular already has gold-standard online support in "Fanaticus", etc.

But remember the official 2017 battlecry:

"Cry MOARBOARDS and let slip the BOARDS of MOAR!"

Since Bill split the rules off, I hardly ever visit them anymore. It seems like a lot of people do (or don't do) the same.

I think it is all in how you think about what to post where. If the post is about a rule question or a rule comparison then put it in the rules section. If it is about a game with pictures using DBA then I would post it in battle reports. If it is about a DBA tournament, then post in the conventions area or in the general Ancients section.

I did find when I tried to cross post into the DBA rules section I did not see that asa a selection.

Ummm not for TMP. But it's working great for the new fanaticus site…

It would be preferable to have all DBX related material in one board in the general area with cross postings where needed.

Few TMPers bother to stop off at the specific boards or have the patience to look at many boards in hopes of finding some DBX content.

I still read it.
