Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Evening all,

    Just had a quick trawl of ArmyNet and the welcome page (after I'd struggled with the new password system) came up with the following plea which I thought might appeal to some of the Arrsepedia experts:

    Nicking another one of our ideas I see ........

    But none of the serious contributors ;)

    I foresee this will be about as well used as their forums :)

    Web 2.0 just doesn't respond to orders.

  4. I couldnt see any of the usual suspects from ARRSEpedia being allowed within sh1tty stick touching distance of the Armypedia.

    Far too corrupting / libellous / seditious / honest / subversive / outrageous / offensive*

    * Feel free to add delete as appropriate.

    I am struggling to see what purpose it has. Surely they would be better off making sure's entries were correct.

    Turns out they have simply copied the wikipedia and dumped it wholesale into their site.

    If this does not breach the letter of the GNU FDL, it seems to break the spirit.

    Not sure what impact this will have though:

    Shame it wasn't arrsepedia they copied and dumped, might have made Armynet a little more useful.
