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.

The Compendium ( In Feature Creep)

Our members might notice a new option in your menu options today.  The Compendium is in beta testing for our registered members.  It is intended to be a by the numbers catalog of high quality web sites that will be scrutinized by the toughest critics we can find - our members.

At this time The Compendium is accepting website recommendations.  In the near future you'll be able to report bad links and more importantly you'll be able to vote on sites that appear in the page.  The site's rank will rise based on your votes.   During beta testing an error or two might creep in, please report those errors in Feedback when possible.  The number of features The Compendium eventually has will be driven by its use.

Emails, Aol and My Thinning Hair ( In Feature Creep)

It's come to my attention that a small percentage of users haven't been getting emails from Find Gamers.  This affects notifications about messages from other users and password reset information.  After doing some digging and subsequently pulling the hair out of my head in repeated frustration, I discovered that AOL is blocking those emails.  Ironically enough they own several hosting companies where other user's email domains reside as well.  So those emails aren't reaching users either. 

Ironically Google Gmail is fine.  Also all emails going to domains hosted by Google are getting through without a problem.  For that matter pretty much everyone else is getting their email as well.  Too bad Google doesn't have a hair restoration product to save me from AOL, they seem to have everything else at the moment.

Still - this is pretty frustrating for me since it keeps a couple dozen of you from getting email notifications from Find Gamers.   I've contacted the AOL postmaster service but they blame somebody else.  The somebody else blames guess who... somebody else and the circle of blame continues.   I am trying a few tricks on my end and our hosting provider is looking into solutions too.  However if nothing gets fixed soon I'll probably start sending the automated messages through a 3rd party email provider like Mail Chimp or something similar because ironically AOL doesn't block them.

So I'll try to keep everyone up to date on this issue and hopefully have an update for you next week.  Keep an eye on this new entry for new information.

UPDATE (8/4/15)

It looks as though we're finally got AOL, MSN and Hotmail to accept emails.  Holding onto my `woot` until I'm certain.

UPDATE (8/18/15)

99% of all emails are now reaching users.  Some occasional password resets were not.  A new fix is in place that should catch those and send them correctly.  All of the bad emails end up in my inbox but remember that you can send feedback without being logged if you continue to have trouble.
