Massive thanks to Nicky firstly for getting this forum going. Another massive thanks to Paul for over seeing the day to day running. And now another massive thanks to Brian for stepping in and taking over. We are all ever so grateful to all three of you. I would be watching soaps on TV if not for here  Embarassed

For some reason I cant put anything onto the DRM Forum at the moment. As I dont do Facebook or Twitter I would be against using these as the only way of running the forum. Thanks to Nicky for his efforts and good luck to him in his future projects. More than happy to help finance the forum. Chris

Going by the suggestions and agreements regarding a fee for membership and the access levels to different people, this is how I would scale the access to the forum

Non paying members

  • New Members
  • General Chat
  • Wanted
  • Picture Gallery / Videos
  • Links


They could only post in the wanted section after 25 posts

I agree with all that has been said and think going down the route of paid subscription to access all forum content is a good way to go.
Anything to keep the forum going!

I think a lot more people are going to their own facebook pages now rather than forums. There is a good few models ones about now which is why some forums maybe struggling

Facebook may reach more people through groups, but i find them to be very impersonal. Sure more people will see your models, but does that really count if you dont know them. Personally, with the community we have here, i respect their opinions, comments and critiques of the models i build to be invaluable as i know their background whether its from a builder, decal maker or collector. That sort of feedback has made my models better than they could ever be on facebook alone as i respect their input far more than someone i dont know on facebook. Of course this is from someone who only set up a facebook account to try sell a few models.


Just to update the original reason for the thread. Nicky will be sending me over the details of the forum in the coming days. Ill have a look at what can be implemented through the admin panel and make a few announcements in the New Year. Nothing drastic but a few changes many of which have already been mentioned.

Thanks for the update, Brian.  Very Happy 

Facebook isn't going to be an option for me - I'm against it in principle and have seen several people make mistakes that have cost them dearly by posting pictures or making comments about what they have been doing when they should have been at work!  Shocked  Not a good idea!!

100% agree with your comments about the Forum's community, Brian. This is unlikely to be replicated on Facebook, so let's keep on going into 2014  cheers . Cheers Brian, Steve

Agree with the comments regarding facebook, not really the place to discuss stuff, it's ok for posting a few pics or looking for people to buy models. To get advice or help then the likes of this forum is the only way to do it. I think there's a fairly regular flow of people on here who are committed collectors and builders plus a few who fancy giving the model building a go.

Can't wait for the changes, think this forum is on the same platform as one I set up a few yrs back, very easy to use

just to add my 'hear,hear' to steve's comments on facebook....i don't like the thing at all and what it stands for...just my opinion i know folks....but there is def a sense of 'community' on here, and i for one appreciate the difference between real 'friends' and the 500 or so many fb users claim to have, even though they have never even met them! i know i wouldn't have half the collection i have without the members on here... I love you  
would also like to wish brian all the best in his taking over and running of the forum, (with undoubted continuing support from ol' moneybags!),  i know we all appreciate your commitment m8...so thanks!  cheers

Well done and thanks Brian for taking on the running of the forum, very much appreciated by all of us.

I agree with most of the previous comments, the forum is much more personal than Facebook, and we have a great community on here.

Look forward to the forum going onwards and upwards in 2014  cheers

Delighted to hear the forum has been given a new lease of life. Whatever support I can give will be given willingly - that unfortunately does not extend to the intricacies of web support (coming from someone who can't post photos on here). Onwards and upwards .
