Thanks Gunnie, I think you should also find a permanent location to the "Campaign Closet" in the Campaign folder too...

Campaign Closet? Do you mean the Campaign Docket - or the Gantt Chart we're thinking about creating?

Sorry Gunnie, what i meant is the campaign docket. The hot weather (is over 40 C down here and there was an hour and a half power black oot today) is melting my brain. Of course we have to find a place for the Gantt chart too in there...

Yes! One question - it seems everyone needs a little extra time to complete Campaign entries. Do you think that we're not setting enough time from the beginning? Maybe we should make a Campaign 90 days, 120 days, or whatever we agree makes sense. What do you think?

To be honest I think that most of the campaign "durations" until now have been set only an educated guess... To standardized the campaign duration to 3, 4 or whatever months is a good idea, and I think it will help rationalizing the efforts everybody out there is putting in organizing things. the most part of us (unfortunately) doesn't make his living from scale modelling and time is precious...

Campaign Closet? Is that where we throw the old campaigns into when they are done?

I set the Barbarossa campaign to start when the actual invasion began and set it to end at the traditional end of summer in the US (Labor Day).

My motives were to force me to build a German armor kit. I picked Barbarossa since it lacks zimmerited vehicles. I did not pick a North Africa or Battle for France campaign (also zimmerit-less) because I figured if I did I would do an allied vehicle.
