Good day gentlemen
I had posted this idea already on the NWC forum and there it was adopted(http://wargame.ch/board/nwc/viewforum.php?f=45) and so I think it might also be worth to consider doing the same here.

The majority of games played here are the HPS/JTS games but there is only an unofficial forum that has a very low activity, our forum is very active and has a lot guys who worked directly or indirectly on these games and are members in this club, so I would find it beneficial to instate a feedback section, preferably a "Games Feedback Section" on the same level as the other forum subsections and within them there should be sub-sections for each game of the HPS/JTS series and within them threads could be started with scenario specific feedback concerning any problems like errors or balance problems.

Now not that I doubt the quality of all the scenarios, hell no but looking through the ones that participated in some way in making these games(designer, testers, etc.) I see very few names compared to the size(number of scenarios) of most of these games and so I wouldn't wonder if not all scenario would have been extensively tested and also not all possible sources would have been exploited, but they still could be tested and feedback given by the membership of this club and so these could still improve.

Besides that, starting to give feedback is usually a very good way to start a discussion about a scenario and the real battle it depicts, and I'm long enough in the "business" of providing feedback on other forums to see the benefit from giving feedback not only in improving scenarios & games but also in expanding & sharing knowledge.

I think this feedback section could be a good place to achieve all the above mentioned.

So is this an idea that can be adopted here too??

I love this idea. I would contribute on any scenarios I am familiar with as well.

Totally forgot that we have a forum for suggestions.
Could any mod please move this thread there?
