Well I just thought I'd add my tuppence worth and throw my teddy in the corner about this merger of TA & OTC.
Being ex OTC and currently on a non military break before being a STAB I was under the impression that I was moving onto bigger and better things, if this forum merge is anything to go by I better prepare for another five years in the pool of reservist stagnation... fortunately I'm not that naive (I hope!).
The two entities are completely different... ARRSE headshed take note of the revolting masses and give us our separate areas back.
Guess we should all just be grateful that the OTC crowds appear to be absent at the moment and aren't turing this dissent into a slanging match.
I would guess most of them are off on annual camp and away from their universities and free internet access for the short term.
NO I am still around and i have posted my reservations to the bosses. Have heard no reply as of yet so keep watching this channel. Am still a mod so you can throw abuse at me and i will pass it up the chain of command.
There is a web presence as such at the moment but it is in a rather sorry state of affairs due to:
a) being constrained in function and layout by the Army Content Management System (ACMS)
b) being neglected after my moving to the smoke for bigger and better things (ie money & lifestyle).
As my teddy is still in the corner about the main issue of joint TA & OTC boards the domain's that I have just renewed will be lying dormant and the half-written code will still have all links to ARRSE disabled...
