We've managed to bring in several supporters to the proposal, but it's still a long way from getting out of the definition stage. It was pointed out to me that most of the questions we could ask about miniature gaming should be on-topic on http://boardgames.stackexchange.com/. Just to be sure I opened a meta discussion there to see if the intended direction of miniaturesgames.stackexchange would work there. It looks like it would.
So, we have a choice to make. We can continue to support an independent site, or just merge in to board and card games. Board and card games does need some extra support to get out of beta.
I think that going it alone would mean optimistically waiting several months before we could even think of getting miniature gaming into beta. I'm eager to get to work asking and answering questions right away.
I started a discussion topic on the merge. If you are following the project, please join in the discussion and let us know what you think.
If someone from theBack40K could re-blog this, that would be awsome. Thanks.
