Yup, its a shame. I have tried posting elsewhere, but there are so many uptight old men on overseas forums (mostly grumpy Americans, but they do have a lot to be grumpy about atm). I know that a lot of people are posting on Facebook, but Facebook sucks.
Looking forward to seeing your current builds.
It's been really strange seeing it so quite. I tried a couple of times to post on another forum, but like you said, lots of grumpy people, picking at silly things.
I have a look at whats new here most days - very little lately. I have been involved in a few forums in recent years. Most are on their death beds. The ones that are still active are way down on posts compared to a few years ago. When Photobucket started charging to host the photos many people left. Most are now posting on facebook as it is so much easier. I prefer forums such as this. On forums you can follow a build and I think they are a friendlier place. I am guessing that the days of this forum are now numbered.
I’m still having a look now and again. Had a burst wee while ago but work takes up too much time at moment, and packing up house. Moving back to Wellington as job in Auckland turns to #!*#!
Hope to be back into it soon, have heaps of good kits to make and throw some landscaping around.
Hey peeps, yeah I've been feeling it to, didn't want to do the "Oh god it's so quite here, shall I shut it all down" post, glad I didn't as long as there are people who still want to come here then I'll keep putting my hands in my wallet to keep the lights on.
Don't forget it's free to host photos here just use the
link on the top menu. Hell if the spammers can post stuff and use it then so you can guys/gals. Just remember to please keep the photos about models and modelling, feel free to post them anywhere, it's got full facebook, BB and PHP tags built in to make sharing simpler.
I've been building 1:1 scale again, working on landscaping the garden, my daughter wants her 21st birthday at my house even though she doesn't live with us any more (they get to make the mess we have to clear it up probably).
I have been building some stuff, built a bunch of tanks, planes and even a Cylon raider but they are are all sat in the cabinet wearing primer, just not had the bug to paint really.
