  1. Thanks, good call - will do tonight.
  2. Thanks for the heads up, I'll look into Imperial Assault. Nice one - the more people who know about it, the more useful it becomes!
  3. Hey guys, I originally posted this in the X-Wing forum (as X-Wing came first! ) I have created an easy way to find wargame players worldwide. Armada was only added at the weekend, but X-Wing has over 400 players listed so far. It's a fan-made site, and non-commercial (more a labour of love): http://miniwars.co.uk/players EDIT ** The search filters are below the map (on larger devices) - these allow you to find by game and distance from your location. If a game ranks in the top 15 for number of players it gets its own page and (e.g. X-Wing is http://miniwars.co.uk/xwing-players). Cheers, elsmore
  4. Hi all, I've added Star Wars: Armada to the MiniWars player finder - I know this is the X-Wing forum but existing members might want to add Armada to their profiles. Star Wars: X-Wing is the 3rd most popular game on MiniWars - impressive for a relatively new game! Cheers
  5. X-Wing is the 4th most popular wargame on the planet! Well, according to MiniWars... Here's the top 10 - the results are skewed in favour of Epic because that's where the system started: Epic (245) Warhammer 40k (233) Warhammer (224) Star Wars: X-Wing (222) Blood Bowl (144) Warmachine (140) Space Hulk (135) Necromunda (125) Hordes (111) Mordheim (105) It will be fascinating to see how this pans out as more players jump on-board.
  6. Quick update - if you had any issues accessing the player locator, you should find they're fixed now. I've also made the mobile experience much better when searching for players or clubs (on my antiquated iPhone 4, anyway!) I'm also working on a tournament / event map - further info soon!
  7. I'd certainly consider it for a sister site. If MiniWars proves to be a popular and lasting service, I'll make it happen. If RL allows!
  8. Try entering "Street, Town" in the Town field in your profile (not sure how postal addresses work in Japan). If you don't want your street showing or it doesn't work, hit me with an email to the webmaster address on the site and I'll sort it for you.
  9. I agree - I need to make sure it's not forgotten. In time I'm hoping the blog and Mini360 sections will provide fresh content to keep people coming back. There's also the fact that it's a one-stop-shop, so as people migrate from game to game they only ever need go to MiniWars to find players. It looks well populated, but I can't see what you do when you've found a player? There's no contact button. BTW there's a clubs section on my site that you can use exactly like the player locator. If you run a club that plays X-Wing - feel free to add it (you can do this from within your profile). The email addy never gets displayed anywhere - it's to verify that you're a real person, and to send notification emails when somebody has contacted you. Sorry about the speed - you may have caught the site when it was caching new member data. Getting a site running that allows you to search so many games+profile data on a map while not taking minutes to execute said search requires some trickery behind the scenes.
  10. Thanks for your support, all. Have patience, more players are inclined to get involved when they see your map markers in their area. Great, thanks!
  11. Thanks for jumping on board, Vorpal Sword. Filtering is already there for 130+ games by game and distance from your specified location. See below the map (tablet sized screens and above) for the filter options. You can also view the general search page at: http://miniwars.co.uk/players It just happens that X-Wing is 1 of 6 games I've created a dedicated page for (meaning cached results to improve speed, which also alows me to remove pagination for convenience) - if that makes sense! I should mention - the mobile phone sized layout is still undergoing refinement.
  12. Thanks, all. It's a work in progress - there's much to do.
  13. Hey guys, I originally posted this in the Organised Play subforum, but it was suggested I come here instead. I have created an easy way to find X-Wing players worldwide. At time of writing there are 112 players listed, and I hope you'll see the benefit of this service and spread the word. It's a fan-made site, and non-commercial (more a labour of love): http://miniwars.co.uk/xwing-players C&C welcome! Cheers, elsmore
  14. Thanks, man. I'll post there. Mods feel free to delete this one etc.
  15. Hey guys, I hope it's ok to post this here. I have created an easy way to find X-Wing players worldwide.
