While playing ANR for more than a year, what I'm missing is a central hub for the game. I'm reading on stimhack which is a great forum and I love the articles! On top I visit the Reddit page.
I don't use FB so I might be blind on this eye.
But what I'm missing is a central hub for the game and not only a place for discussions like Reddit and Stimhack.
I would like to get a summery of @Elusive ban list without following the discussion. I would like to know which web pages are important, which podcasts, where the videos from worlds are.
Would like to know that in Germany there is the HDS forum which is important, that 22.214.171.124 exists and where I get more info and who is responsible for it and perhaps that there was a Big boys 45 cards ban list.
And so on....
I think discussion platforms are not a good place for summarizing information. They are good for discussions, but not to collect information and present them I a easy to access way.
It should help me if I want to get into a new topic but would help newbies very much as it would be a place for orientation.
After surfing the net for ANR for over a year I have the feeling I know what I need, but sometimes it's hard to find Infos becsuse they are buried in the 25 post of a thread. Same regarding the current approach of a ban list. Would like to know when the discussion is finished and just like to use it. But don't have the time and interest to follow it in detail. The big point is, we have good discussions but we need a place beside this where information is easier accessible.
I might be the only one feeling this. But I think this would also be a part to encourage new players and lower the entrance burden.
I would like if others feel this would help in general and them.
And on top as my time is limited, but I would be able to provide a technical infrastructure such as domains web space to contribute.
What are your thoughts?
