Help – Find “How to” articles for web site navigation. This will give more in-depth descriptions to the features outlined above. Also there are articles related to registration, contacting ODGW, and much more.
Last Year, ODGW was besieged with several challenges due to various bugs and gnomes that were running amok in the old web site. We, therefore, spent no expense (really, one of the talented members of our group did it for free) to squash the bugs and exorcise the gnomes. (We hope)
We have migrated the forums and user accounts. We have taken great care to capture all the data from the old site and port it to the new site. If you find something missing please let us know.
So you have read the good news: new site, new features, same great service, etc… Now for the bad news: the one item that we could not port over from the old site was user passwords. (And if you think about this it could be a good thing knowing your account and password was safe even from us..) If you had an account simply go to the Help section and look for the “Logging In and Out” news article. This will help you but if you are having problems and nothing seems to work contact firstname.lastname@example.org. One of our friendly staff will help you through this transition.
Thank you for your support and steadfast dedication to our products over these many years. We are like you in as much we like to game and think wargaming is a fantastic hobby.
