We are into some grey areas here:

(a) Who actually runs the site? Thankfully, it does not need much moderation, but a couple of us have administration rights. Mark (MJ1) tends to know what he’s doing, and me considerable less so.

(b) Whether CFNA is a legitimate subject? I know something of the game but have never played it. It ticks some boxes but perhaps not others. It is certainly a wargame, and aims to be a very historical one. It also features team-play, and the need for communications. Whilst not structured as a traditional k/spiel, there is fog-of-war I think. But that tends to arise from the sheer quantity of information, rather than the lack of it. Overall, my feeling is that it’s close enough to a k/spiel to pass muster.

So ‘officially’ please feel free to continue using this forum and/or migrate to the new one, as seems most convenient Smile

If other cases arise in the future, we will treat them on their merits.

I am somewhat confused as to what the intentions are in terms of using this site for CNA. VASSAL is evidently the site on which the game is played. Not having read the four pages leading up to this how it relates to Kriegsspiel is not clear. Not being a VASSAL player I do not know how it operates and how players exchange comments with each other and play the game. Perhaps those who want to have something on this site could explain what having it on this site would add to the site for us and what it would give them in preference to being anywhere else?

Other issues aside I shall in any case have to withdraw from this game. I unfortunately can't commit my time to it in any reliable way at the moment, too many other things are going on. My apologies.
