An example of the confusion caused by the use of pseudonyms on forums, people don`t know who they are talking too, which can lead to offence being given at times :D (not in this case)

I had no idea you were MrCreak either :lol: :lol: :lol:

I used a pseudonym when I joined the Forums as it seemed to be the thing to do at the time....if I changed now no-one would know who I am anymore.... :lol:

Just one of the good things about the old SOTCW Forum was that people used real names

Doing it for one Journal was time consuming and difficult. I won't be doing it for any more. If anyone else wants to take up the challenge, shout up.
Well I would consider it but I think I should want a clear idea of what we aimed to achieve. Doing a complete journal might be too demanding but what if we redid what we could get cleared as some form of compendia? That would enable publishing some of the past material.

I don't quite understand. There are 50-odd Journals that we don't have available in digital format. If one Journal is too demanding, then what are you offering to do?

Maybe that instead of trying to get permission from all the contributors to one particular Journal to contact people who have in general written for the Journal and see which of them would give permission for their work to be put on the website? It’s not important then for it to be shown Journal by Journal, it could be listed or searchable by theme or by author’s name.

Just to be clear I’m not volunteering to do anything myself ( I have done something similar a while back professionally for a couple of years a while ago), I’m just saying this would be another way to approach it without being completist about it. And in Wargaming terms I got a lot of permissions when I first set up the Vintage Wargaming blog including people like Don Featherstone (RIP), John Tunstill and Airfix.

Some of these gave blanket permissions so you could start with some of the more prolific contributors or some of the more memorable marerial.

There’d need some thought to be given about using their email addresses to contact them to make sure SOTCW keeps on the right side of GDPR.
