As a mode for bringing the rules to the obvious and unavoidable fore, it is a great idea, as people can no longer complain when reprimanded that they weren't aware of the do's and donts of posting..But, and it's only a small but, will the rolling screen and constant message not become tiresome to the frequent members and those who are well aware of the rules? You'd get used to it I suppose.
 
Updates on the total Quiz and AE Magazine could also be placed there when necessary..
 
If there were to be awards, like has been suggested before, the winners could also be posted. Just a thought.

I think that some of the blacklisted topics should be un-blacklisted, but not many others think that so Its a moot point.

The scroll will contain the 10 pieces for the time being. We do intend on adding new information as events unfold. The scroll could, in essence, be utilized for many announcements in the near future.
 
We are in no hurry to open old cans of worms. The Blacklisted topics will remain in effect. Only when those issues become today's news will they be open for discussion. Then one can find the opportunity to post under Current Events only.

I have a problem with the scrolling 10 pieces, in no. 3) there is a 'hat' in there that I think is a mis-spelled word.

Parnell,

Believe me no one is happy about them being blacklisted, least of all me. But as the past has seen those topics decended to a level that is not in the best interests of the forum.

Also I don't know if this is the right section but could we add a 21st Century section to the website for essays and such?

If you mean for 21st Century history, then well we already have a forum (s) viz current affairs and Modern History which covers it v well.
 
If you mean writing essays well we have a mag for that. Get in touch with Dawn of Paul.

Forgetting me Sparten???

I believe you are correct though Kevin, we don't have a 21st century section on the Main Site. And I'm afraid that creating it would be a bit... smudgy. PM me and I can solve your problem I believe.

Also I was wondering if it would be a good idea to start a recomended reading list for each section so people who frequent this forum can have more tools in terms of the education of history and other subjects.
 
I could contribute greatly to the Military History, Modern History, and Current Events section in terms of this if anybody wishes.

You mean recommended reading for each forum (thread would be asking just a tad too much!). Actually Kevin. We could do a pilot study. Pick one forum. Submit your selection of reading material to one of the mods of that forum. Have them open a thread with your references in it. Let's see if others add to that list. Has potential. Btw, remember we still have our History Portal with gobs of links - http://www.allempires.net/forum_topics.asp?FID=50

Could you guys get andrew and Beylerbeyi to reconcile, then you could reopen my thread on Ottoman territory in Africa. It's the third thread i've created that you guys have closed, and until Beylerbeyi and andrew started arguing it was a good thread. I intended to make a few more inquiries and contributions in that thread.
 
I can't agree with you guys holding informative threads hostage when you could simply warn offensive members individually or ask them to reconcile with whoever their arguing with, which in most cases they are likely to do, including this one.

I closed it yesterday while dealing with the problem that arose between Beylerbeyi and andrew.  Trust me, in dealing with the situation behind the scenes, I have championed re-opening the thread the whole time.  I find it very interesting and have contributed to it.  Once I clean up the offensive posts, it will then be re-opened.
 
EDIT:
 
I have re-opened "Ottoman territories in Africa."  Please notice my preface to the re-opening at the bottom of page 2:

Maybe you guys should have someone thats like a sertified history professor to clean stuff up and tell them what really happened a hastings or somthing because when somepeople put stuff down their just trying to sound smart when what they wrote is historicley incorect.

Hello.
I am new here- first post - and am sure this is old news so not a 'suggestion' as such. But is there a search engine, either for the forum or the Bibliography of recent publications?
Currently my main interest is the 15th C. and Italian Wars Swiss, and was wondering how I could find my way to publications or discussions on that topic, or other specific topics. Thanks

Well first of all Welcome DrQuahoq
 
secondly you can find the search button up the top under the scrolling messages, just click on that and type in what you want in the relevant box and where it says 'Find Posts' click on the drop down box and set it to any date for the most results.

Hi DrQuahog. At the top of the page, you will see a "search" tab (with a piece of paper and magnifying glass next to it). Click on it, and from there you can search all of AE' archives for specific words in posts and topics, as well as how far back you want to go in time. You are also able to specify which subforums you would like to search in, such as "Early Modern and Imperial Age" or "Military History". I hope that helps - if you are still having trouble, let me know or PM me.

Well, thank you for the rapid reply.
Sorry about that- in similar forums, and the all seem to have similar formats, there was a 'search' box in the corner with a place to type a query. I hadn't noticed the icon in the menu. Thanks again.
