VWF forum milestones... how far we've come since August 2007

Postby Mark » 11 Aug 2007 01:19

Hello all

The Victorian Wars Forum (VWF) is a new online discussion site which went live on the 10th August 2007. As with many new forums it will take time to get to the attention of those who might be interested.

If you have found this forum and decided to join yourself please do tell others you know about it. The more 'genuinely' interested and like minded people we can attract the more valuable the VWF will become.

Forum Milestones

Postby Mark » 10 May 2008 12:42

I thought it would be nice to have a thread recording forum milestones as and when we achieve them.

At the time of posting The Victorian Wars Forum has reached its first little milestone - 1000 posts!

Fantastic. The way some of these topics and posts are going, this is going to become an excellent Victorian Military resource on the web in itself.
