[bf1942] OT: please have a look at this, DICE Canada, resp. ANDY (or: Is this list still active?)

I think it's true that this list is more effective generally speaking than 
the forums, for both parties (if they let it).

I don't think any change to the nature of this list is necessary.

btw personally, I haven't even bought BF:V yet because I know it's not yet 
close to where bf1942 is, let alone actually finished.  I'm certainly not 
running a server for it...
