"Session Reports"! (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.

The Co-op Night recaps I used to do on HBO seemed pretty popular, but unfortunately they took a lot of work and would not have been possible without films.

As someone for whom raiding is the my favorite activity, one thing I'd like to see more of is sharing of strategies and maybe clips of these strategies working. Maybe more live streaming, too, but I understand if not everyone is comfortable with that.
