Please visit us if you have an interest in scale models of any type feel free to register and post your problems, tutorials or anything to to do with scale models
And what is your point? if you are saying that I am a 1 post wonder then you are wrong, I spend a lot of time on various newsgroups, that is there to stop people that have commercial sites i.e. that make money, I have set up this forum with my own money, the cost of the hosting and Vbulletin licence, and it is a free site for people with a common interest, and I would like it to stay that way.
This is the third (? maybe more) time that this advertisement has appeared. I saw it the first time.
Since I am only interested in model railways, and have no interest whatever in scale models of aircraft, cars, ships, model rocketry (what's a scale model of a model rocket?) I have no intention of joining a list which will inundate me with messages that I do not want to read.
That's fine, for most part it is a free world, you don't have to do anything you don't want to. But obviously you don't know what a forum is, it's not a "list" that's for sure, and you only read post's that are of interest to you.
Oh, I see. You have to log in to a web site, and poke around in there for the stuff that you just might want to read? Where on earth am I going to find the time to faff around with that sort of thing? I need all my spare time for railway modelling, and I already spend too much time at the computer.
No I don't think you do see, you don't have to login, you can view the forum and all the information there without being a member, and the biggest advantage of a forum over newsgroups, is retention, depending on your ISP the newsgroups retention can be anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, on a forum the information is always there, it becomes a valuable source of "searchable" info, something newsgroups could never be.
Anyway this is the last I'm going to say on the subject, you are obviously too narrow minded to try other thing's and by the sounds of things wouldn't want to share your knowledge with others.
This was an invite to many people not a personal invite to you, that's the good thing about website's you don't have to visit them if you don't want.
Incidentally, this paragraph is a shining example of what is known as an "ad hominem" argument. "Ad hominem" is an attack on the other person being argued with, and is used by people when they have no other way of countering their argument.
Anyone who has to resort to "ad hominem" attacks has lost the argument.
Do you have a problem with English? where in that statement did I say you can contribute to the forum? I said all the information is there and you don't need to be a member to view it.
You are sadly mistaken if you think this is an argument, I was just stating fact, after all it was you that started it and seem to take it personally, I had no idea that this was your personal newsgroup.
