r/BattleOfStalingrad has moved to r/IL2Sturmovik

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

As moderator of /r/BattleofStalingrad, letting all of you who Reddit know we have moved to a subreddit with a more intuitive name, r/IL2Sturmovik. I have noticed that this subreddit's name makes it difficult for people to find a reddit community just for IL2 content, so in an effort to get more people into this sim, I have moved the subreddit to one with a better name. Please support the new subreddit if you're currently a r/BattleOfStalingrad user.

I will try to set up an automod soon that will direct all traffic to the new sub.

Thanks for the heads up GridiroN. I've updated my bookmarks accordingly!


No problem buddeh. I have completed the automod so anyone posting in battleofstalingrad will be informed.

Good with the name change, but how come we just not direct all IL-2 content to /r/il2 ?


A couple words on that...


When I originally searched for a r/il2, for some reason it returned me nothing, so I made r/il2sturmovik with plans of making r/il2 simply re-direct to sturmovik. However, when I tried on my desktop later, it appears it was already a subreddit. I contacted the moderator of that sub to ask him if he'd like to merge subreddits, because il2 has a number of subscribers already but it's css stylesheet and theme is obviously non-existent, but the moderator has been MIA for almost a year. It's just a sandbox sub.


I'm currently debating if it's best to just send everyone to r/il2 or keep r/il2sturmovik as it will actually have some leadership/responsibility; not just a sandbox sub and hope everyone moves over when the quality of the sub is clearly better... I'm shutting down r/battleofstalingrad in 2 weeks I think so Ill have that time to think about it, or hope the moderator shows up. 


Another game I play, Mechwarrior: Online had the same problem with having 2 subs for 1 game, and all the mature players moved to the quality sub and all the younger kids/trolls stuck with the sandbox. 


Edit: I just checked the subs out... r/il2 has gone down by 100 subs...r/il2sturmovik has gone up 200+ in one day. So, again, something to think about.

Please keep r/il2sturmovik running GidiroN. The sub is slowly growing and looks great.




Thanks to both of you. 


Just doing my part :salute:

I had thought it was odd I couldn't find an IL2 subreddit.


Yes. The whole ordeal was mismanaged from the beginning. BattleofStalingrad was a bad name for a subreddit, and someone took "il2" I think just in the hopes of being the mod of a subreddit. Someone said if you googled it, BattleofStalingrad was the first result, but I honestly don't think many people google subreddits; they usually use reddit to find subreddits.
