" That is amazing for basically a small core of friendly nutters, thanks Eddie.

Maybe I ought to try visiting your site myself ! "



Hi Michael :wave:


Another months figures on the desk at head office.

Not enough Site visits from YOU ! ;)

Si.


Remember that old poster ... ' Your Model Railroad Site NEEDS YOU ! '

Michaels cold-war era P.C. finally melted down BTW.

To iPad or not to iPad ... That is the question . . .

Just re-Posting this from a while back . . .



- - - - - - -



It's been noticed that there are a LARGE number of interesting Topics, that are essentially sitting in the 'General Talk - Off Topic' Forum & often get 'buried in history'.


So I've decided to dig up some of these dusty ol' 'General' Topics & 'Move' them to somewhere more suitable.


For example...

...'Does Anyone Remember Cardstock Structures' has turned into quite a long & interesting Thread.

It has been 'Moved' to the 'Kitbuilding' Forum.


This is pretty much only going to affect Threads that got started in the 'General' Forum.

A 'Redirect Message' will be left, if a Thread is moved, so finding a favorite should be no problem.


The 'General' Forum is sometimes where some of the Sites most interesting or unusual Threads get started.

Some get a few Posts, others get a few PAGES and THOUSANDS of views !


I hope this might help current & future Members & Guests find even more COOL stuff to look at on Freerails, more easily.

Topics in all the other Forums won't be 'Moved', just interesting things from 'General' to a Forum that is more suited to the subject.


:moose:

593,014...but who's posting?!?!?!  The same 14 I suspect L:

Nobody has posted in the O scale sub-forum in a month and if I didn't talk to myself in the RC section that would amount to the same thing.  The main contributor to the O scale forum has apparently left (a real shame too :shocked:), has anything been done to get him back ???

I'm as much at fault as the next guy, I only look at stuff that draws my interest and rarely comment on it.

So...we need to step it up and get more folks to post :old dude:

At least folks here post about what they're doing, one of the other forums I visit seem to concentrate on what the other forums are doing or on stuff that's no longer made, like they're "collectors of the obscure" or post stuff that's so far off the wall you wonder what they've been smoking [whack]

I think more folks would participate in the RC forum if we had a "RC for Dummies" tutorial.  Some of the talk is so convoluted that it's hard to grasp what is being said unless you are an EE.

Howdy Bob, I was the one who made the "honchos" start the r/c forum long ago. I kept griping and jabbering until the listowner created the forum to get me away other forums!
When I began the subject, I posted what I was familiar with-r/c car equipment in locomotives. After these many years, that is what I still use (I can't or won't afford the new stuff.)...if it ain't broke, don't f@#k with it!
I appreciate the response it has brought and though I am still the moderator, I feel that I have been "left behind" by the new devotees. Oh well, that's the fate of us old dinosaurs.
Try reading the original post about r/c http://freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=1221&forum_id=45 which began.."In the beginning,..."
Just let the kids talk about their toys, I am still running my old lokies, just like usual.

Woodie

Hi Bob :wave:



There is no doubt that it is the Members & their Posts, which make Freerails what it is.



The fact that there are over 1/2 a Million page-views a month ...

... is a testament to the 'quality' archive of material, Posted by our Members.

The more of course, the merrier !



There is a slight tendency in most Forums, for Posting to drop off a bit in the spring/summer months.

Gardening (my bugbear !), holidays, family stuff, can mean a bit less modeling.

The upturn in Posting between say September & May is consistently noticed.



Having said that, I personally enjoy Posting whatever the season may be.

Freerails has propelled my modeling forwards, like nothing else.

I like sharing my own crazy constructions & step by steps etc. ...

... which is exactly what I like to see & is often not catered for in magazines etc.



Some Members do drift in and out of Posting, as their 'life situation' changes.

I very much miss Michael (salada), as I'm sure many of you do as well.

His 'life situation' has meant a step back, from his regular & entertaining Posts of the past.



Whilst on some Forums, someone 'blinks' and you get 10 'attaboys'...

... Freerails, thank goodness perhaps, isn't total 'attaboy central' ...

... but the Page-views say it all, in terms of the 'quality' content on Freerails.



So I would agree with Bob.

Don't THINK about Posting a comment, a photo, a model, or an idea ... POST IT !

Some of the unusual stuff that goes up, is often the most commented on ...

... and sometimes the most viewed.



Of course, to the regular photo, model & layout Posters ...

... keep it coming !

If you don't get 10 'attaboys' for blinking, just check the Thread views.

Many people including TONS of non-Members are following your diverse stories each time you Post.
