I'll add that it does not display properly in Netscape 7.0. The heading
(Rocketry Planet with the associated menus) shows at the top, and
'Featured Links' shows properly at the left, but the rest of the page is
way off to the right and requires a large scroll to the right to see.
I understand you may not want to support a browser that old, but I
though the info would be usefull anyway.
Not a bad design ... looks like you put alot of work into it
Please don't take this the wrong way but it looks like a fancy clone
of TRF . Is there a need for another forum ?

I like it. TRF isn't as good as ROL used to be before it was
"improved." Sorry guys but that's how I see it. I appreciate the
efforts of all three but at this point, it looks like The Planet will
come out the winner.
Thanks, Phil. And remember, The Planet has just begun. In fact, it hasn't
even been officially released, but there doesn't seem to be any more bugs
reported and most all requests for improvements have been considered and
The biggest improvement suggested by several was for the web site links to
include an alphabetic navigation system so users could just click on a
letter and go to listings that started with that letter. This has been done
and works very well.
None of this means The Planet isn't open to more ideas! What we are trying
to consider here is what needs are currently not being met in the community
and fill those needs. One such idea I just came up with involves the
possibility of using a bulk video storage solution such as YouTube to
warehouse rocketry video with the content imbedded in Planet pages.
The only similarity RP has to TRF is that we share the same company's forum
software. TRF uses version 2.2.9 which was released in November of 2002.
RP uses version 3.5.4 which was released in February of 2006. Beyond that,
the similarities end here.
Rocketry Planet also includes news, articles, web site links, auctions and
real-time chat. Perhaps you overlooked them in your initial visit?
