    Rumours on WarSeer

    After discussing this heavily with the Mod Team, I'm here to make an announcement about a change in policy for how rumours are dealt with on WarSeer.

    Many will know that over the years WarSeer has gained a bit of a reputation for strictness of what we allow to be shared on the site when it comes to rumours. This was simple practicality.

    However now things have relaxed a bit and we have decided to make some changes.

    This has been the case for a few weeks now, but after a stealth trial has been pretty positive, we're making it official

    Now, this doesn't mean things will become a free for all. Flagrant copyright violation will not be tolerated and outside of the news forums (soon to return to News and Rumours) we will not be so tolerant of people who decide to paste whole pages or more of rules.

    But please bear with us whilst we find out exactly where 'the line' will fall on rumour sharing.

    Added to this, thank you for your patience whilst we sort through all the comments the community have been giving us about WarSeer Reborn. We want the site to adapt and grow in line with what you all tell us needs to change. Sometimes that change takes a while is all.

    In the meantime, go forth and gossip! Rumours have always been a key part of WarSeer. On a personal level, I'm glad I can oversee a more relaxed attitude on the site again.

    As you were,

    This is great news. The new GW really is making me happier each second, and things like this really show the effect a better company can have.

    Sounds good. I mean the world has changed a lot since the times when we basically knew the exact contents of a new codex or army book a while before they are released and GW themselves are running their very clever community page. (on top of this we got sites like BoLS and the spiky one who'll post anything that generates clicks whilst adhering to their narrow target audience). All the more i'm eager to see what substantial rumours actually emerge.

    Re: Rumours on WarSeer

    I understand that the team had to enforce a stricter policy, but honestly that rule that forbade even links to other rumor sources bordered on silly. It did a good number on the board. I always considered N&R to be the lifeblood of Warseer. It was why I and others used to flock here. There was no better place on the web for this, with all the old regulars like Harry and Hastings and all the others whom I have forgotten over the years. By bearing down on rumor leaks GW tried to kill this place, and in my opinion the mods were all too eager to become accessories to this murder at times. Why visit this site when all it does is relegate you to some other site?

    However the crisis is over now. And ironically with GW being far more open minded regarding informations it kind of feels like this place is no longer needed. The situation is reversed now. What GW didn't achieve with strictness they now achieve with openness. Why should I visit Warseer to scavenge crumbs of rumors when dubious persons like a certain Lady Atia can post the entire GW release schedule months in advance? And also GW killed my game so why would I care in the first place?

    So before I congratulate you to your decision I take the liberty to ask if there will be anything worthwhile to read on this board. I know some mods used to have a very intimate connection with various birds for example, it would be good to know if those still exist or if they all flew away in the meantime.

    And I also want to know what GW is going to do with the "Aelf" range and when!
