Gamers Talking

Find Players

Searching in your local game store or on message boards to find other local gamers can be pretty frustrating.  Roleplayers & Tabletop Wargamers have challenges finding other gamers who live near them.  Everyone hopes to find people interested in the games they like.  When you do find other gamers then you're crossing your fingers hoping they'll have similar opinions on genres & play-style.  Find Gamers is doing it's best to help you find other people that match your interests not only in Roleplaying but also Miniature & Historical Wargaming.

Gamer Profile

After registering and building a Gamer Profile, you'll be able to search for local gamers in your area or those interesting in playing online.  Other people can see your favorite games & interests then contact you about tabletop gaming opportunities.

Online Gamers

If you live in a sparsely populated area and can only game online, then you can add `Game Online` to your Gamer Profile.  Find Gamers show your Gamer Profile in the Local Gamers search (Within Canada, Great Britain & USA) but also list you in Online Gamers listings.

Find Conventions

Another feature is our member driven Convention & Event list.  Any registered user can create events.  They can be Conventions, Online Events or the more popular Local Only Events.  Local Only Events are often used for:  a local organization's game day, a hobby store's tournament or class on painting miniatures. Our gamers are looking for Roleplaying or Wargaming conventions, be sure to add yours.

Comments

I'm representing 3-4 players looking to join a play-by-post game of Vampire: the Masquerade. Three of us are experienced players who have played Vampire in different formats and also done our time as Storytellers, the last is familiar with PbP but is new to the World of Darkness.rnrnWe are particularly interested in finding a game with a level of challenge to it, or an appreciable balance between risk, game mastery, and reward. We're not power-gamers - we write character sheets, not probability tables - and we understand that the Jyhad is a shadow war of politics and innuendo, not blood pools. V20 is our preferred system (and why would you hate yourself enough to run Revised now that V20 is out?).rnrnMore than happy to talk in detail, check out your site/game, etc. And if you want us to check out a game that gets into the same kind of themes I've mentioned above that isn't necessarily Vampire, shoot, let me hear it! I've heard stories about Legend of Five Rings courts that are as good as any from the World of Darkness.rn

For a better understanding of these preferences, there is a question in the Edit My Profile section of the FAQ.  It's titled "What do the Roleplaying Preferences in my Gamer Profile mean?"  Select this line to open the FAQ in a new window.

Groups & Games Updates

We've made a couple of minor changes to our Group Finder pages.  These changes were to help clear up some confusion and make it easier to navigate the Groups. 

Breadcrumbs were added to the top of the page.  The selectable "I'd like to" button was moved up to the breadcrumb bar and is now green instead of blue.  We hope it makes the button easier for members to find.  A fair few of our members weren't aware the "I'd like to" button allowed them to add their own groups or change the search from Local to Online Groups.

Over the years a few members have asked why we don't have a Game Finder - well, we do.  Take a look at the search results, each line shows you the game each group is currently playing.  And to emphasize that games are listed, some of the in-page text was changed to Search Groups & Games.    

Let us know if these changes are helpful to you, we'd really like to know.

Login Bug Notification

Hello Gamers.

Yesterday a troublesome programming bug was discovered and fixed.  It was a coding error that could trigger during the log-in process, it could have affected some of our members under the right circumstance.  Our database was not exposed, it was not a web-site hack.  Luckily the problem was found quickly and patched.  

In the right circumstance, the bug could have allowed someone to log in as a different user.  Luckily, there isn't evidence of a single account affected.  We have thousands of members - however fewer than 200 members could possibly have been affected while the bug existed.   

I wanted to make certain our members knew about this incident just in case someone was actually affected.  Good communication is the cornerstone of trust, especially with so many large company websites not informing it's members for months or longer.  

Members who could have possibly been affected will receive an email today.  If you don't get the email, then you were not affected.  

If you do receive the email, it does not mean you were actually affected.  It means your account was logged-into during the time the bug existed.  There are still no signs of any accounts compromised.


If you do get the email, this is what you should do:

  • Check to make certain you can still log-in.  Your passwords could not be exposed even if someone logged in as you.
  • Verify the email address in your Gamer Profile hasn't changed.  
  • Examine your Gamer Profile settings.  Are your avatar or text comments in About Me the same?
  • Confirm your Gamer Interests haven't changed.  This include Game Systems and Genres.


Members who receive the email and believe they were affected should Send Feedback.  Please provide information explaining why you think you were affected.
