OK, so this is quite an emotional moment for me. Not up there with my wedding, or the birth of my children, but in terms of Blood Bowl this is alongside reffing at the World Cup or winning my first tournament (both good things). This is why I am indulging myself by writing a personal post on the NAF site (something I’ve mostly avoided).
About 5 years ago I got seriously involved in the NAF as Media Officer, having been a member since March 2007, and I got involved because i wanted to make it better. One of the big improvements I was keen on was the website, and I was really pleased when the WordPress version of the site came along, and i was able to gather as much BB-related info in one place as i could. It has its critics, but I believe it is the best portal to BB content that there is.
Anyway, the other was a longer time coming, which was to make the Members Area something more, and we’re now pretty much there. We have Online tournaments being added, and today the new-look Coach Page is unveiled, with a record of tournament success, and bringing into the open items such as Head to Head, which has been there forever but only if you have known where to look.
So big thanks to Tiago from IE Solutions, who has been working with the NAF on this, and has delivered the Variant rankings, fixed the online sign up, along with a load of other stuff that had been “not-quite-right” ever since i became involved with the NAF.
There are more developments to come, but this is a significant change, and I wanted to celebrate it. So lastly, if you have won any awards, please nag your TOs to log on, go to the Tournament, click Edit, scroll down then add your names. It’s that simple. I’m off to add the Majors (not that I’ve won any, grumble grumble…)
