Mega-Threads in Chaos Dwarf General Discussion


Greetings, folks!

Multiple existing threads have been merged and hijacked to serve as mega-threads fo AoS Dawi Zharr & Twisted Duardin, T9A Infernal Dwarves and KoW Abyssal Dwarves and Blood Bowl & Fantasy Football Chaos Dwarfs. Please keep most AoS, KoW, T9A and BB Chaos/Abyssal/Infernal Dwarf discussion to those threads. Topics which do not necessarily need a new thread will me merged with the mega-threads per routine, going forward.

These big threads are for the need of Chaos Dwarfs Online to register in the top search results for evil dwarfs in the various new settings. By keeping discussions concentrated we stand a better chance to appear on the Google radar in the current split wargaming milieu.

Unlike the aforementioned AoS, T9A and KoW Mega-Threads, the BB/fantasy football one will also feature relevant miniature news from all companies (whereas only GW/FW will show up for AoS, and Mantic for KoW).

The Staff




Upcoming Overhaul


Also, a big overhaul/reboot will be attempted later this year. Tjub and I are dead set to make it or break it, and give CDO the critical technical features which allows for direct image upload, such as Imgur, Reddit or Facebook sport: Mantic's Kings of War Forum shows the way forward.

This forum that refused to die, for the race that refused to die, have fought many succesful rearguard actions over the last years:

We met the Photobucket crisis with stubborn toil and escaped with the vast bulk of our accumulated image treasures intact. We have managed to keep the flame alive and sport lively activity from our members in all the new major wargames out there, where many other forums died in the wake of the End Times. And while our numbers have dwindled, our creativity burns as bright as ever, and the forum is overall a friendly community.

Yet the magnetism of Facebook with its intuitively simple image upload is proving too great a challenge to overcome with our old tech. So we will have to rejuvenate CDO's software and catch up in the race for the sake of our long term.

Chaos Dwarfs Online is now over 12 years old. It has been a creative hobby hub of brilliance from the very start. We hope to make it bloom anew in numbers for our next dozen years ahead, even if we have to restart it on a new site to acquire all necessary features. There might be a crowdfunding attempt; we shall see.

Be assured that all our treasures will be carried over by manual labour if a reboot occurs. We will not lose our past to safeguard our future.

Special thanks to all our active members, new and old! Stay tuned as ever, and keep sharing your ingenious creations. Takes Hat off

Cheers

While I acknowledge the ease of posting to facebook, for me this forum sparks more creativity than a casual scroll through facebook. Personally, I find that participating here in this well curated environment with such collaborative folks to be more rewarding in the long run. Here's to the revamp going smoothly, Zharr will survive!

Jupp, I think most of us feel kind of the same regarding "social platforms" or Forums. So with the ability to host/upload photos to the forum will make it alot smoother to post and hopefully survive for years to come...

Absolutely fantastic ideas. And the great thing that a forum can do that Facebook and the like haven't mastered is proper and decent blogs. As well as easier search functionalities and just straight up finding topics you want to read/talk about by getting a headline and choosing to pop into the conversation.

You guys have done fantastic work from what I can see over the last few years and I'm grateful you've kept things going and given me a place i can come back to.

RE: CDO Website ChangesHashut's Blessing 01-22-2020

Thanks, tjub! I have many and varied plans for the dark future. I mean dark plans for the many and varied futures. I mean... urm.... Cake?

I do plan to start up a new blog as I try coming back into the fold. I still technically moderate the Chaos Dwarfs Online Facebook group too. I'm aiming to build a full Age of Sigmar Legion of Azgorh force and I want to paint all of it properly and as best I can. I'm also looking at Star Wars Legion - have some models, but not been able to prime them over winter. Looking to sort out proper terrain and gaming area and start playing. I also plan to still use my Chaos Dwarfs for some 8th edition playing, if I can find some local players - not sure yet if I'll finagle the bases onto trays or just go for 4th edition big hats for 8th and Forgeworld roundies for Age of Sigmar or what. My big plan is still to make my K'daii Destroyer (a treat after building the core of my force) from all those years ago when I was still frequently on here (for Age of Sigmar, I plan to use Orghotts Daemonspew's rules as they seem to most closely fit the profile from the Tamurkhan book).

I want to get back to being active on here (and in general, frankly) and get involved in the contests and pushing forward witht he Chaos Dwarf narrative where I can. I gotta earn my username back, after all Wink
