    Hi all,

    I have been busy with some additions and cleanup, on the forum.

    Under the Specific Model Categories, I have changed some of the forum names to reflect the interest better, and I have also added the Moderators to those categories.

    I have moved some of the competitions we held to a Retired Competition section, you can still view some of them, but beware that some if not most pictures might have been lost.

    If anyone would like to become a moderator, please PM me with the request, and which section you might want to help us out with.

    So you know who moderates which category, here they are

    Ashrunner == Aircraft and Aviation, Animals and Insects, and Real Space
    arosteguy == Commercial and Racing Vehicles
    ekuth == Real Space
    Amazyah == Internet Finds and Tools of Trade
    TheWebDude == Cartoon and Anime, and Science Fiction
    Nobi == Designer's Corner
    RichBohlman == Railcars and Engines
    cgutzmer == Reserves, Translations, Reference Shelf
    nebeltex == Armor and Military Vehicles and Gaming and Gaming Accessories
    Masamune Washington == Cartoon and Anime Models
    and me, rickstef in Commercial and Racing Vehicles, I know, I am also an admin, but I love these things

    Let me know if you want to help out, have ideas for other categories and the like

    Ok folks,

    those who are experiencing only 3 threads or so in the Rail car forum, go to your User Control Panel, and go to Edit Options, then scroll down to Thread Display Options, go to the last one Default Thread Age Cut Off
    and select Show All Threads, this way you will see all the threads posted

    Thanks go to TheWebdude to helping me out on this headscratcher

    Thanks Rick and Rick, that worked. I was set on forum default and must have passed a time limit for the "missing" threads.

    It had me stumped for a minute or two also.
    No thanks necessary.

    Just letting you all know, I have added a Figurine and Paper Doll section to the Specific Model group of the site, and have moved Mark's excellent Suit of Armor in to it

    I would just like to know if the RC models are going to be made out of card/paper.

    Paul a, I think it's a good idea to have a RC section, if the models are made from card/paper. But there are plenty of good RC forums out on the internet, if the models are going to be built out of other materials than paper/card.

    After all I came to this forum because it was a card/paper forum and not a models made from other materials forum.
