July 2017? Really? Back when I was a Moderator here at SimHQ, it was a requirement for Moderators to contribute articles, reviews... Things have certainly changed around here. Sad really.

There are admins and regular members here who are very capable of and I'm betting willing to write reviews, after action reports etc. that would make good articles for the main page. Just ask.

Some of the posts (reviews, after action reports etc) around here would make good articles.

Back when I was a Moderator here under guod, it was a requirement for Moderators/Admins to provide content i.e. reviews, articles... Shortly thereafter, things, changed. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure that the current Moderators/Admins are very capable, but, why put the responsibility on the members to provide content like we did before 2017?

I think a few members might see it as an opportunity rather than a responsibility.

I have often wondered why the articles stopped three years ago. I guess that explains it.

Posting new content would help keep the site active/relevant.

Hey Ghost, why don't you submit an article? That'd be pretty sweet.

I've done my fair share here at SimHQ (as a Moderator). Thanks.

Well write us some more! We could use some contributors, as you say.

Before anyone gets too exercised about articles for the SimHQ.com website, be aware that somebody with access to control/edit that content would need to be lined up. That would need to be set up by RacerGT.

The forums are a subset of that. I am an an admin of the forums, but AFAIK I have no access to control content on that website. It is a different kettle of fish.

I had suggested too that AARs would make for nice articles as F4UDash has stated. Maybe a new one posted every other week or so just to keep something current on the main page. I've been wanting to do another Hidden and Dangerous 2 AAR as well as an AAR for another unique game that I've been slowly working up a story to go with it. I think Racer even mentioned at some point he welcomed folks to do articles.

AARs can even act as a look back to simming/gaming gold. Individuals could also do "retro" reviews to perhaps foster interest in folks to return to or play for the first time older titles.

So nothing has changed since before I took off the Moderator hat.

Mr_Blastman, I'm going to leave that chore to others that have the time. I currently have very little as a CAP Squadron Commander, it keeps me pretty busy as well as my full time job.

I guess I’m just not getting the point you are trying to make Ghost. As you’ve mentioned before, you haven’t been a moderator here for a long time and you haven’t been a regular poster on the site for a long time as well. What do you still have invested that makes you so sad that articles aren’t published any more?

I asked to be removed as a Moderator due to the changes being made at the time. I haven't been a "regular" since then either, true. Probably for the same reasons. Personal ones that were discussed behind closed doors. Back then there was, as stated a requirement for Admins and Moderators, not to only Administrate as well Moderate, but to also provide current content. Heck, We'd cover E3, E For All... in REAL TIME! Not so much any more. And then there's those pesky Infolinks... UGH
