So our old system had campaigns and operations. The former being more complex group builds with a theme and highly planned and structured setup. The latter being informal group builds with maybe a subject (type, brand, or model of vehicle/aircraft/ship, etc). The ‘Campaign’ option basically became the default choice for everyone setting up a ‘group build’ and thus… we called them all campaigns. But that was not the original intent. Also I think campaigns were longer and operations less so.
So… do we keep the ‘everything is a campaign’ vibe or do we try to differentiate between group build organizers who are obviously trying to make something special and not just ‘hey… anyone want to do another Sherman group build?’. Not that I am knocking the Sherman campaigns, just not sure why we can’t have both.
Also I don’t like that every single group build has evolved into being a year long. That seems like a long time to me. I think our original group builds were more like 3-6 months and sometimes they crept into longer than that. I did some digging on other sites though and I was stunned that on may sites a time range isn’t even mentioned. Nada. I didn’t get that. Yeah we have been doing this Sherman group build for 2 years now. You wanna try it? How is that a group build?
I know some of you guys are saying… hey Jim… don’t mess with what works or how we want to do it. But… you all wanted me involved in this process, so you get what you get.
Feedback? And yes I will listen.
