Major Command as a Second Family

Recently I have read a few posts in The Mess that has a player venting about family issues . We all can use some vent time for various reasons. What I find so amazing is the fact those issues expressed in The Mess show a depth of personal experiences that someone would not disclose unless they felt completely at ease with posting them in public ( so to speak ) and carry a heavy dose of personal pain that normally no one would disclose to people.

I will not name that player out of respect for them, but be it known that Major Command contributing to being an outlet for this kind of discourse is therapeutic in more ways than the usual game site can provide. We have some very special people as members, and [some challenging ones]. With that said, it goes to show that our members have experiences and lives that sometimes need an ear to relieve stress, The responses I saw to that particular thread were compassionate and encouraging. THAT is what makes Major Command special ! Players form partnerships, friendships, and count on there being the same type of members. Ya just can’t find that on other sites, or at least that has been my experience.

The people here are fantastic, and Major Command will continue to not only provide gaming fun but when ya need a friend you can find one here. I might suggest another forum slot… for personal stuff that would be considered classified info and posters can send “read permission” passwords to others they want to discuss things and keep it private. Just a thought… Semper Fi !

  1. Interesting points you raise Legionbuck. I have been concerned with the absence of one of our prominent players who has not signed in for some time. While I respect the right of players to come and go as they please I have thought recently it would be comforting to know this player is OK and that the powers that be in MajCom had some way to check that they were OK.

    • Yes, I wish we could do that too. I think a few people had a bit of a fright with chefsmitty when he went AWOL about a year ago. Glad to see him back though. 😉

      • Too add to Friendorfoe’s point…. those who knew me “personally” here knew a lot about me. The fam, sports teams, hometown and the name of my restaurant. SOMEBODY CALLED THE RESTAURANT AND CHECKED ON ME!!! I was busy at the time and couldn’t get to the phone, but they asked if I was there, alive, and doing well! So to the entire MC fam….. missed you, love you guys, and good to be semi-back!!!

  2. Nice essay! I’ve had some nice personal interactions with a few people here. One player asked about my icon, and it was related to a T-shirt, so i sent him one, and he said it really made his day when he was having a rough week. It made my day, being able to connect with someone like that. Another friend I’ve met here is one of my two closest friends that I’ve never met in person.
