Pushback - Aug 1st Availability online

Post by Jim Skach » Tue Feb 26, 2019 6:23 am

Greetings,

As is my curmudgeonly way, I will make my first contribution a pushback.

I suggest that the GFA not be available online until at the very least after GenCon has ended.

Historically, the GFA was intended to be something handed out at GenCon, then distributed *physically* be volunteers who would print a dozen or so copies and take requests to send them (and IIRC the only cost was to cover be printing and/or mailing).

I understand that the GFA is a victim of its own success and that this dream long ago dissipated like fog at a warm summer suns rising. But I propose that in honor of that dream, distribution/availability of any volume's pdf online be held until after GenCon.

If you do not agree, then you are clearly a heathen without taste and deserving no respect.

Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for the history lesson.

We have no issue pushing back the online distribution until after GenCon to keep it in the spirit of the original caretakers.

We will update the information and posts shortly to reflect this.

Anything that moves the nature or feel of the GFA back to it's Year One character is okay in my book.
