All former front page news posts are retired to this News Archive. Preserved mostly for posterity, the posts herein - particularly the new feature announcements - vividly illustrate how far we've come since emerging onto the wargaming scene in June 2010.

Comments are still active on each and every post no matter how old. Should you choose to continue an old discussion the subscription system remains active and previous posters will be notified as usual.

Missing in Action

Due to a quick jaunt out into the local countryside, October Promotions will be delayed by one day.

So, those of you one battle shy of a promotion get a little more time to sneak in some experience, lest you have to wait until November.

PG Evolved

It is with both immense pride and relief that today I announce the publication of our newest article: A Two Player Double-Blind System for Panzer Grenadier.

Immense pride because this is a damn fine article contributed voluntarily by a regular member, demonstrating both the quality and activity of the PG community.

Relief because this article was supposed to be published 5 weeks go but one thing after another kept delaying the work - for which I deserve most of the blame.

Lastly, thank you to our author - Peter Lloyd - for his hard work and ingenuity in not only writing this article, but creating the system it introduces.

Online Applications &amp; Bug Fixes

By popular request, your User Profile tab has been redone to incorporate the addition of usernames for online applications such as Skype and MSN. The Player Finder has been tweaked to make room for this new data should you choose to supply it.

In other news, the Login System has been completely overhauled because some users were unable to log out. I'm pretty sure that all the kinks have already been worked out, but if you find yourself denied access to a page you previously were able to enter, please email me so I can fix it.

Record bug fixed...

The following bug has been fixed: When I submit a scenario by clicking "next step", it instead throws me back to my player "home" tab, without recording the scenario.

Recent rearranging of the code that drives My PG-HQ left out one little bit of boolean logic, the absence of which rendered the system blind to records without AARs.

Are we subliminally encouraging our users to write more AARs? Nah, just a bug. :-)

Thank you for your feedback!

While we had been hoping for a clearer consensus, the final results of the poll were still valuable. A 19.5% feedback rate is great.

The Annotated Rules team is hard at work, and plan to finish the first draft by early September.

As for myself, it's time I got to work on that Player Aid section!

More tweaks and the August Development Plan...

By popular request, a list of all plays logged including rating and AAR (if present) can now be found on each member's profile, as well as on the Home tab of your My PG-HQ.

In the Library, if you visit the page of a scenario that has been played, it now lists all the members who've played the scenario and the ratings they gave it.

Going forwards, the August Development Plan includes the Player's FAQ, the House Rules section, and the Player Aid collection.

Game OOBs have arrived...

As part of our ongoing mission to bring you Panzer Grenadier information found nowhere else in the universe, the PG-HQ Library now lists complete Orders of Battle for every game in the series.

Simply visit any game's library page and immediately below the scenario list you'll find the complete OOB for that game.

Stick with us folks. We're only just getting started!
