The new website is live!
« on: May 29, 2014, 11:45:43 AM »
Marcus has managed to make it all happen, and www.yourmovegames.com now has our new website.

Please check it out, let us know anything you think should be changed or added.  And let us know if you'd like to be part of the team that keeps it growing and current.

Errata spelled wrong (Eratta):
    In the Games menu and on the Downloads and Rules page

After getting to a faction page, is there an obvious way to get back to the main BGFW page?  Unless I'm missing something, it seems the user would need to either hit the browser back button or go back to the Games menu and select Battleground.  Perhaps a link or close icon to return to the originating page? 

You are welcome to use the revised reference sheet I posted some time back.

Glad to see a new website up and running.

Looks great, Marcus!

My suggestion would be to remove non-existent retailers from the retailer locator...

This was a huge team effort and I'd just like to thank everyone involved (again).

Kaile, of course, made all the graphics -- our new top-of-the-page banner, the various buttons, etc.
I wrote most of the text but a bunch of people helped out, either writing stuff or doing editing.  (It's hilarious that one mistake we didn't catch was errata.)
Marcus did just insane amounts of behind-the-scenes work, figuring out how to port over the forums, transfer both hosting and domain registration, organizing images for easier site editing, all while cleaning up various by-products of the company CEO (and web decision-maker) being a guy who basically thinks computers are magical typewriters.
Corey coordinated the whole thing with our Kickstarter launch and identified a lot of "to do" tasks that otherwise might have fallen by the wayside.

tl; dr -- you all rock.

Yeah, I watched Marcus go through everything it took to get the website ready, migrate the forum, then coordinate the two server hosts (twice!) to make this happen.  Every single person in this community owes Marcus a beer...

I fixed it on the Downloads and Rules page but it was spelled correctly in the games menu unless I missed something

I have included at link at the bottom of each faction page.  Thanks for the suggestion!

Hmmm...don't see it any more either.  

Thanks for all the work you and everyone else put into this.

Thanks for catching it!

I'm no expert on these things, but the errata page seems a little out of date. I noticed the Dark Elf lowblood levy wasn't shown with its reduced attack stat. Also, the +2 attack dice isn't shown on the combat card, is that official or not?

You're right, that page needs updating.  I'll get Kaile on it on Friday.

Are there any others we're missing?
