Re: SOTCW Future Offer

To be clear, the following is on my behalf only. I didn't discuss what I'm about to write with Phil or Andrew. We knew when we took over that membership was declining, and we tried to reverse that. We created a PDF version of the Journal because people have been asking for it for years. We made it a...

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

2) Agreed - do you know who is the treasurer today and what level of oversight there is ? I can answer this. I'm the treasurer (as it says on the website ). Andrew has the same access to the bank account as I do. Andrew and Phil both have full access to all the online accounts, so can see every tra...

Re: Over & out

How about a modest fee that provides: Access to material behind a firewall :?: That's been suggested before, but frankly, ideas are cheap. People have suggested a paywall before, and there was little appetite for it, and even fewer volunteers. In another thread, you suggested a £10 fee for access t...

Re: Over & out

So lets be clear ..is it the overall view the Society including the forum be disbanded. That's not my view, no. Nor is it the view of the team as a whole. We're trying to keep the society going , albeit in a very different form. There will still be articles and reviews (assuming we get them), which...

Re: Over & out

To be clear, the text of the announcement is here: https://forum.sotcw.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=788 Regarding membership, I think it's a bit of a nebulous concept. If we were to maintain a membership, what would that mean? What would someone need to do in order to be considered a member? What benef...

End of Subscription 15 - major changes

The following was sent to subscribers on Thursday: Hi, When we published Journal 94, we said that we would continue to publish Journals for as long as we had money to print them and content to put in them. We received enough content to publish Journal 95 in July last year, but we still don’t have en...

Re: Journal 96

I suspect I (and others) have been guilty of assuming everyone knew the same history that we did. For the last while, there's been the possibility that the society would cease to exist, but we've been hoping to avoid that. In the past, the society has been largely defined by the Journal.

Member query

A member has asked if we know the address of the South Leeds Wargamers and the address of a military history booksellers in Harrogate.

Do any of you know either or both of them?
