Hmmmmm

Hmmm....good idea except wrong host. I do not use G-Mail so guess I will be left out of this discussion group. I am not a fan of Google because of many of their lack-of-privacy policies.

It doesn't important use gmail, you can create a google account with whatever mailbox you have (mine is not gmail). The account gives you the possibility to use the services but it doesn't automatically activate them

Why don't we just use the forum here? Or am I missing something? Martin went to all the work of setting up 2 fixed nights and times per week when everyone knows a game will be on... what more do we need?

Digby, the forum works well, but for scheduling and communication services is easy not see posts or see them with delay; Martin already has to maintain a mailing list, simply this will be a mailing list easier to manage, of necessary communications or rapid questions asking, like what mods for the match of friday, the doodle links, etc. The hoping is to attract in the orbit also people which don't follow regularly kriegspiel forum but want eventually partecipate to a HITS match for the week-end.

This morning I was a little in hurry, but I didn't want have given the impression the groups was planned like a substitute of forum; forums (or fora for the latinists) is done for a different type of communication that mailing list (the groups in this case has been set as mailing list), and you can also send invitation to join the groups. You can read a mailing list from a mobile but is not so easy read a forum, so for short messages you want to be read immediatly is better this form of communication; I evaluated also steam, xfire, etc groups but they useful only if all the people are only at the same moment. Forum remains the best for true discussion like AAR, technical descriptions, but if we wants more people on the forum before, we need to reach them using the game matches. The plan is to give to all the forum people the admin access for permit them to send invitations to people which express interest to the HITS matches

NOT

Post  WSH Baylor on Fri Mar 07, 2014 10:26 pm

I just received an invitation to join the Googles group currently being formed by member(s) of this K/S forum. I have most stridently refused the offer!

As I previously noted, I will not join Google because of their privacy rules and requirement for personal information that is not relevant to their needs.  I regret that the founder(s) of this new group find it necessary to "jump ship" from the currently available forum.  With the current forum and T/S, I can not see a need for another and believe the result will only be a diluting of information and member contact.

Further, why was this proposal not discussed in an open forum before it was created by the founder(s)?   Strikes me that the "tail is wagging the dog!"

I would urge the founder(s) to reconsider their efforts to move to Google and apply their efforts instead to the improvement and continuation of the current forum.  It has prove adequate and readily usable without requiring the users to provide the personal information "needed" by Google.

Jack the first proposal of a early watch system has been done here and I agree with Stefan: http://forum.kriegsspiel.org.uk/t1003-fast-announcements-of-ad-hoc-games .

I have not interested to maintain some sort of shadow forum like you seem to see in my action, my interest is to have a system of rapid information distribution for tell to people that on the Kriegs we are organizing something which requires a prompt attention,, KS people will have administrator permissions for invite and add users interested to HITS matches but not inscribed to the forum. I planned to pass the property of group to Martin when he'll learn to use the tool.

I have not discussed it (or better I have discussed in Stefan post, but no people replied) because is easier test the things and see if they work, that discuss on something people never tried before. Invitation is free, if you don't want you can reject it, what is the problem?

And no, I discovered you don't require a google account for simply receive\reply the mailing list information, is sufficient give a valid email address.
