Would still appreciate addresses of similar sites / FB groups that cover this interest.

shame there haven't been any suggestions.

Im not that sure there are any to be honest, unless you go Stateside and there they seem to have spearate sites fro different WWII interests .. having it all under one roof as here seems rare .. ??

Far to split up on Facebook, much prefer all under one roof like here and PST. I think this is having a knock on effect on the hobby in general

I am inclined to agree, but cant see loads of people suddenly deciding to come back on here, particularly when there is no Admin/Owner about.

Always was way better than Face-ache. All I can find on the facebook page is adverts for selling stuff.

Having looked at Pssst Axis site, they're in the same situation. Everyone's been lured away to Faceborg and messenger.

At re-enacting events, seeing the groups working together, they're either under umbrella-Axis/Allied organisations, or the various groups know each other well from regular battles. On the ground, most groups interact and get on. Here,having driven others away, the anti-axis posters have themselves left too. Everyone's too busy, to discuss what they're doing over the bulletin board.

As a knowledge base forums win hands down over facebook.

I total agree, but I went over to multiple groups on Facebook because that is where I find more posts and comments than on most if not all forums. The main problem that I see with individual groups is that their subject is so narrow when compared to a forum, and unless you are a member of the right groups you do miss things.

The clue perhaps is in the title .. WWII Re-enacting.co.uk .. a WWII re-enactors forum ... not a German one, a French Brit or US one, not a Naval one or an Air Force Army or Home front one .. it encompassed it all ... and those that were able of course managed to find out what they wanted from the various sub forum topics ... not that much different if you think about it from FB as the main body with its individual groups within it where it seems you ahve to flit from group to group, unlike here where it is all to hand .. !!
