I would like to add my two cents here. First though is a big thanks to greg for this forum. I enjoy your magazine and look forward to it. I buy it before i buy any others. As for the forum here, i have been on it for six months now and have found it to be a excellent source of info and a great way to pass the time at lunch. I have made a few friends and learned a lot as well. I have found items i couldnt or didnt know about from members on this forum. I look forward to reading what my other fellow modelers are up to and seeing their wip, and finished works. I think this imho is the best forum for model car builders and it would be a shame to lose it over a few bad eggs. I have also seen the therapuetic benefits through reading different postsof this forum for helping people recover from illnesses and accidents. So please keep this in mind before shutting it down if it ever comes to that. You would lose a lot of knowledge that you cant find on other forums. I enjoy reading the little quips and comments on the forum. Even harrys. So keep up the hard work. I appreciate it and so does everyone else on the forum just my two cents.

I would really hate to see this forum go.  I too think the vast majority of members do appreciate the time and effort that goes into a resource like this, so please don't let the ignorant few ruin it for everyone.  Thanks for all the work you put in Greg, it really is appreciated.

I subscribe to the mag and love this forum.  Many thanks to Gregg and everyone else that keeps this thing going.  I actually enjoy reading the occasional nay-sayer, gives me food for thought.  After all, if it weren't for the crazies I wouldn't look as sane!

I really love this forum and appreciate it very much!!!!!!!! I buy the magazine as well whenever I stop in the hobby shop, if they have it. That's usually all I do buy there.

Gregg, your forum motivates me to build. It's members teach me how to build. Your site is the window in which I get to display my efforts. I'm certain that's the spirit in which you and Jairus started this forum, and the spirit in which the vast population here values your forum.

 

I'm willing to bet there are also a few callous knuckleheads in Hawaii, but you would agree they don't in any way represent the island community. This forum is still the village you hoped it would be and the vast bulk of us (less vocal) visitors are immensely grateful for your hospitality.

150% agreement with ALL of the above.  Like my friend Tom says about the magazine's delivery to subscribers, (and I know not all will agree with this, and if you don't, keep it to yourselves PLEASE).  "We pay for 9 issues per year...... We get 9 issues per year... Why does it matter WHEN we get them..??"  Yes deliveries could be more timely sometimes, but deal with it already..!!  The Publisher will eventually get it worked out.

 

This Forum has helped so very many of us, if not ALL of us, to learn more about our hobby and to build better models.  Negative comments, snarky remarks and personal attacks could ruin this place for ALL of us.  Please, please, please do NOT let that happen.  It has been said by more than a few people here that if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything.  Let's ALL play by the rules here.  Be nice and "share the Blue crayon".  Gregg's rules are common sense rules.  Besides, it's HIS ball so we "play by HIS rules".  If you don't like the rules of THIS game, go find another one.

PS: As we used to say in the enforcement of laws and keeping of peace game, "Illegitimi non carborundum."

I have not been on here as much as I would like lately, but I just wanted to thank Gregg and the Mods and others who work hard for our enjoyment, I am trying to spend more time on the forums because of the knowledge and community here, I would be completely saddened if Gregg had to make such a drastic decision that would affect so many good people.

Please respect the rules, and as so many have stated, his rules, don't like 'em, just leave.

Me, I am sticking around because I think Danno has some cool illegal carburetors for sale, and I would like one for my next General Lee project. How cool.

Mike

 Greg has stated he is paying for this forum out of his own pocket, every month, every year and its obvious its a thankless task at times.

 

Some sites I belong to have a ' Donate ' which you simply click to make a donation of the amount of your choice.

 

Maybe this could be looked at here so we could give Greg something back and remove some of the burden he alone is carrying to host this forum.

Every time the Forum goes down for a few hours I go into PANIC mode.  I know I'm not the only one when I start receiving emails from others asking what is going on with the forum. No other forum that I know of is this easy to navigate and when you need help someone always steps up to the plate.  Please keep it going!!!      I hope you get any problems sorted out in time.  Thanks Gregg and to all the moderators who I'm sure you couldn't do without.

Gregg, I joined this forum a short time ago. I left another forum because of the things you ran into lately on this forum. You are doing a magnificent job even though there are times I'm sure when you just want to give up. Don't!!!! It's because of this forum that my grandsons are taking an interest in building models. It's something we can pass down to another generation. So thank you for the hard work and dedication that you put in this forum.
