      Additional thought on the member map. If you don't want to put the pin on your house, put it on your local FLGS.

      This is quite a few requests, but you asked for it. I know there is limited time everyone can put into content and website development, but here are some things I thought about while listening to the podcast.

      *A place for "Variants" (Maybe a forum category?)

      *An easy way to keep discussions on articles/blogs going.
      -Far too often a great topic gets bumped to page 2 and all conversation stops. I'm wondering if there is a better way to keep track of article conversations.

      *Some sort of polling/ranking for a community consensus
      -I'm not sure if something like this already exists, or the logistics of putting it in place, but I think it would be really cool to have a vote/poll/rank'em on various things like "best globals, most annoying cards, most polarizing abilities, ugliest dice, rank each Marvel set, most "fun" cards, most wished for IP, etc. This would just be a fun, lighthearted way to keep the community discussing the game without bringing up the same 4 team-build archetypes and 50ish power cards.


      The rest of these are sort of content related, and many have been at least partially discussed before. It is just difficult to locate them within the website after they aren't on the front page anymore, and some could use an update given new sets have been coming out as such a brisk pace. I guess a more "one-stop shop" spot to click and find the following information would be very helpful to new players and veterans alike.

      *Various "How To" topics (These have been done before, but it's difficult to find because they get buried in an article or forum post) like:
      -How to play (and find opponents) online. (Skype, Hangouts, etc.)
      -A step-by-step setup guide of online play, discussing equipment/hardware/apps/etc., and also resources to find players.
      -How to get different types of people into the game (Board Gamers, CCG players (MTG especially), comic fans, role play fans, video gamers, frugal types, "I gotta have it all or its not worth it" types)
      -How to keep players into the game. My area has had many who have gotten way into it, then back out just as quickly because they can't keep up with it, they disagree with rulings/interactions, etc.

      *Bring back some form of "Reading the Rainbow".
      - I do enjoy draft/limited/in-set coverage.

      *Bring back some form of "In the Lab/In the Field" (Although pretty difficult with Vassal no longer available, and Shadowmeld doing so much other stuff now).
      - Crazy combos and interesting builds are tons of fun to hear about.

      I had more, but they escape me. This is more than enough to keep you guys busy.
      (Oh yeah, writing "guys" reminded me...maybe some way of getting a female perspective once in awhile?)

      The DiceMasters Reddit is actually a mature and well behaved place to talk shop.
