Opinions seem to be divided. Both 1915 and 1916 have been suggested as start dates, and there are also other campaigns under way.

I have time to fly only one DID-type campaign, and I'd like to do it with Lou as the Gong Fairy. So I have no problems starting in 1915, if that's what the majority of people want. But the date should be such that it also allows full-fledged French careers.

Not sure if WOFF allows French in early 1915 - then it could be started in February 1915.
Or, if not, February 1916 ?
Maybe you should make a POLL about it, Lou?

Olham, I have almost no time to fly as it is so I don't think that I should be the one directing this show. For that matter, as things stand now I wouldn't have time to do the awards for another DID campaign anyway, (much as it pains me to admit it). I will say though that having another campaign in 1916 will likely be so much white noise, given the DID Centenary Challenge currently running in the same year.

I agree with Lou, why do you guys just join us in the Centenary DID and we can spiff it up however you want?

No Gong Fairy? Aww, what a pity! frown

Is there really any point then in starting another DID in addition to the Centennary one already underway? Should we all just join that one and keep it simple? I could that - I already had one pilot there (now KIA).

I agree that we should go with the centenary campaign rather than start a separate one. I loved this DiD format, but think that it's better to be in one big community.

I'm sure no-one will object to storytelling there!

I'm certain Banjoman can come up with a modified Google Forms capture for the 'new' Did Campaign. I'm just not sure whether I could download the results to Excel (as I always did before) to do the calculations for the points. Maybe the points don't matter!

I am starting to use WOFF UE for my own 'completely Dead' campaign. This means I use all the pilots which I have added at various years and various aircraft and will fly them all until they are all dead! I know I have about 33 pilots in there somewhere, and today flew a BE2c mission and a Sopwith 1 1/2 strutter flight. There are many others in there still alive, some are German as well. Once they have all 'gone west' (or 'east') I will start over. There are also many aircraft I have not flown at all. This sim will keep me going for years at this rate biggrin

Jim, we already have a points system that seems to work fine. I don't think the scoring system needs revamping, but it would be nice to come up with a 'gong' system sort of like Lou's.

Should we add an earlier start date, or are people happy with the two choices now available in Centennary DID (one in September 1916, the second in current date in 1917)?

I'm really hoping that if we use the Centenary DID then we won't start over because both of my pilots have been flying for about a year and half each and I would really hate to lose that progress. eek2

No, I was just thinking if people would like another start date for example in 1915, in addition to the ones already included. You know, to get a chance to experience the early air war again.

I'd be up for 1915, as I have an active career in 1917 in the other campaign, and a more relaxing one here would be good

Can people join the current one and like, catch up?

I'm trying to figure this all out and I've noticed that it's well along and has a real time schedule, but I see people talking about joining?

Just curious.
