I like it! (DBO)

Great points!

In fact, this immediately makes me thing of the other main hobby site I frequent -- boardgamegeek.com (or, BGG, for short).

If you're not familiar with BGG, it is the largest website/community for tabletop games in the world (in fact, they just recently hit a new milestone of 5,000,000 unique visitors per month!). It is mostly a database that contains game pages with images, rules questions, session reports, user-created files, and general forums for pretty much every board game ever (96,318 unique game entries as of today) as well as general forum threads that cover all kinds of categories.

Anyways, one of the popular features of the site - and in fact one of the main early focuses that instigated the community growth early on - are the session reports where people post a summary of their recent play session.

I think DBO could indeed be more positively engaging and interesting to log in to multiple times per day for the average user if we do return to having more of that kind of content.

That’s exactly the sort of thing I was thinking of.

I used to write those “Tales from the Lighthouse” posts almost every week, back when we were playing Trials all the time. Although that might be a bad example... I stopped writing those because people complained that those posts were making them feel bad because they couldn’t get to the Lighthouse, lol. But something like that might be great :)
