Forum Turnoff

Not open for further replies.


Jan 20, 2005
Checking the forum today - I see two locked N scale topics - both resurrected from the past by new members to this forum ( less than 4 posts each ) who obviously found a topic from the past that interested them and wanted either more info or at least comment on them.
The poster slammed them to the floor with as much internet tact as a 2x4 and safely locked the topic.
Is it any wonder why posts from 2 or 3 years ago are still current posts or on the first page on this particular forum. No one is interested in chiming in or posting if they are gonna get slammed right off the hop. It's a forum to read and enjoy for everyone -and it's not the only forum out there.
I think the poster and his position on this forum with his upteen posts should be setting the example to the newbies to the forum - not turning off those interested in contributing or wanting to participate.
Just a thought.
