I was reading the review for Bounding Fire's Blood and Jungle and I noticed that the links in the article for other products do not work. If I run across any others I'll let you know. Thanks for all your great work.

Things seem to work fine, after my modest navigation on the site.

I've spent several minutes cruising the World of ASL section. Specifically, I clicked on links that I've never clicked before to ensure that there is no cached stuff on my machine to give false positives. No broken links were encountered, nor broken images etc. It was not an exhaustive test, but it was quite random, and nothing jumped out as a problem.

In the page for "Critical Hit Vol.7 #1" (which I got to by more-or-less randomly clicking on various tags) there's a link at the bottom for "Facing the Blitz". That link is broken.

Being brand new to ASL, your site has been of great help to me. I really find the information informative, helpful and interesting.

Re the links: I have a broken-link checker that i use and for some reason it did not pick up on the examples you found. when the site is stabilized I will fix them. But anytime you find a broken internal link like that, please let me know and I will fix it. I have not had complaints about any large number of broken links until today.
I thought only Trump blamed the media... ;)

Mark, found an error in your HP! review:

A few other little changes also appear in the rules, some the addition of errata or clarification that have nothing to do with the Finns. For example, Romanians troops with ATMMs may now use them even when Berserk (the rule now reads “unbroken and unpinned” rather than “unpinned, Good Order.”
The ASLRB Index states that berserk units are not in Good Order.

If I understand what Mark has written, he is correct. The rules used to say that units that ATMM could only be used by unpinned, Good Order units. This is bad both because it prevents Berserk units from using ATMM, and it also prevents Melee units from using ATMM. The change now allows Berserk units and Melee units to use ATMM. I think you are reading what he says backwards.

The change was made to bring this rule in line with C13.7 (after the Journal 10 errata). Had this rule not been present on the Replacement Page, regular errata would have been issued for it.

Your site has adds enormous value to our hobby it is an incredible resource yet you do not appear to have ads so you are footing the entire bill. This does not seem quite right to me. I did not see a place on the site that allow users to help with the cost do you have a place where people can donate a few bucks to help with the cost?
I do pay for the website and associated costs myself. I do not openly solicit donations on the website but I do accept them from people who want to help out. If you pm me, I can give you an e-mail address that you could send a donation to via paypal, if you are interested. Thanks!

The real news is that the year is 1/6 gone, and there are no 2017 products or reviews.

You're right, I did switch the "was" with the "is." Thanks.

Ah I was thinking of PM as "p"rivate "m"essage. Thanks!
Personal Message, Private Message - basically the same. I think in this forum-software's lingo it is called Conversation.

If you have a look at the top left of the GameSquad screen, you'll see a miniature of your avatar. Clicking on that will give you a drop down menu from which you can choose "Conversation". Selecting that will allow you to begin a new conversation with another forumite. And I believe a limited number of further users can be invited to take part.

An alternative to vonM's method is to look at the appropriate name beside a post (in your case Bob Walters), click on that and the forum software will bring up a similar pop-up menu and by clicking on the "Start a Conversation" item you will be sent to the 'Conversation' screen with intended the recipient's name already filled out. So look for one of Pitman's posts and do that.
