New FB Group for Russian Civil War
« on: July 16, 2020, 09:34:27 PM »
Yep, finally I went and did it. Noone else did with the 100th anniversary of the conflict happening right now. It's a conflict wrapped up in my earliest wargaming experiences, and I'd love to create a place to be a clearinghouse of ideas and information on the conflict.

You can find the group here!

Can you make it Public so those of us not on FB can at least see it?

Thanks

It is of course entirely up to the guys who run it but I wont be posting in Public Groups I am afraid.

I would be very interested in such a group but there is no way I would join FB. Just wondering why it has to be a private group, oh well i will just stick with LAF forum i suppose.

Being private does stop it being spammed by folks with no interest but who just like winding others up, or worse want to spout their political ideology all over your hobby.

For me personally its more about how it interacts with my facebook community, the majority of my facebook is about friends family and Rugby, we use it pretty thoroughly to organise training games etc, anythign I post on a public page is immediatly spammed to every other person I have none of whom have any interest at all in wargaming so for me if its not a private group I wont post at all. Shame really there are 5 or 6 groups that cater for my hobby interests that I avoid because they are Public.

Actually roger has a very good point here. I recently had one post denounced as racist and all but got called something that I am most certainly not.

It wasn't a pleasant experience.

Having said that, I am a member of quite a few public FB groups so I suppose I should accept some taunting  ???

In regards to the private/public discussion, I am in a number of wargaming groups on FB and I deliberately interact less with the public groups. My friends and family don't need to see all my gaming antics, and I'm not organised enough to manage a separate gaming profile.

For those of you who aren't fans of FB but still want to be involved, I'd recommend building a 'burner' FB account and use it exclusively for the gaming groups. There's groups I manage with a number of such accounts, and it's just a matter of making sure they're not troll accounts before allowing them in.

This illustrates a) that Facebook is a poor user experience and b) Facebook isn't built to the benefit of the people using it but the advertisers.
