With the risk of loss during the migration.
Maybe we could also search for a better forum using Joomla.
Well yes, the main issue I have is having to spread the same message multiple times to reach everyone. For example, our national tournament has a thread on vekn.net, on this forum and an event on Facebook and I will try to give it some attention in the other channels mentioned. So this means I have to collect participants from all those channels to get an idea of the number of players and make sure I don't count them twice when they answer on multiple channels. What I'm trying to get at is that I get the feeling that our multi-channel approach makes it much more time-consuming for me. It really was an issue for our Sabbat release tournament, where people could order decks and I had to try to stay on top of who had ordered what exactly.

Is there an issue promoting on several, if not all the possible, channels ?
I am visiting this website/forum (if not I wouldn't be posting). I just have to admit I'm not using it for weekly play anymore, as I have noticed the people from Ghent & Bruges (who are closest to me) have stopped using it in favor of other channels. So this means I come here once or twice a month mainly for the tournament info (and a bit more if we're getting closer to a tournament we're organizing ourselves). There was a time we made Praxis seizure topics here for every Friday evening. I think we have to admit this isn't the case anymore.

The majority of belgian players check this regularly.
If you check the history, this forum/website was up even before you started playing VTES.
So if your hidden agenda is just to close this website to focus on Facebook, just say so ... thank you.
I'm offering this, hosted on my server, for free, for the community.
Michel and me are investing time to bring back the website part of vtes.be and improving forum features.
But yeah ... I just don't understand.
Actually, there is a worldwide VTES discord. I believe you can organize online play (lackey) with it.
