I am posting this and will take the fall if i'm not supposed to post another "model" related forum but its a shot in the dark I don't want to be the only member there :huh: http://fordscalemodelers.boards.net/
 
like  mentioned  I will take the  fall if  i'm  not  supposed to  post a  link like this  Erik  did  a  great  job  building the  site


I  give  Props to Eric,  A  few  years younger than  me  ( i'm 30)   And he  can  Build an  entire  Forum style  website  within a   days work....awsome I say   I build  models   and  lack the   computer  skills,  He  has  them  all    technology skills and   model  skills
  Guess  theres a  reason his  user name is  what  it  is......... B)

Good luck with it! Model car forums (even the most popular) seem to be dying away little by little. Every forum I'm a member of seems to have less and less activity. It's been that way for months. They were slow even during the winter months when a majority of people do the most building. I think a lot of people are now doing Facebook. I'm thinking about opening a Facebook account for the first time myself. I can see the advantages it has.

facebook  it  okay,  its  fast   easy  access  to  model  related  people, but  i get  tired  of  a   bagillion  little  notifications that  someone  "liked" something  i said  or  a  picture i  post.....  if you   like a   image  of  a  build  instead of clicking  "like"  write a  brief  comment  instead      yes its  easy  to  find and  connect  with  other modelers, i just don't feel its as  personal as a  forum..... That  is a " Opinion" of mine

I think you can turn off all those notifications.

Thanks for a bit of the ego stroke there Danny.

 

I figured starting a small Ford based community would be fun. Obviously,  everyone is welcome. I appreciate those of you who have checked it out.

No disrespect to Eric, but he didn't build that. It's standard off-the-rack forum software. All you do is plug in your forum's name.
