Glad to hear that. We use Vbulletin, one of the best forum programs out there, and it's specifically designed to handle a large number of concurrent users. It's a very stable and well designed program.
If you've visited the railroadforums section, you'll see that there are consistently 100 or more users online at one time, and it runs well.
> and seems a lot more diversified.
We're also open to suggestions and ideas. We have quite a few special interest areas, and we'll be glad to add more if there's interest. So if you'd like a topic for your favorite type of modular design, such as N-track, or one about modeling in On30 or whatever, just let us know. We'll do our best to provide areas that match our member's interests.
Hi Rex, don't worry about that, if it does, it will be stamped on right away without punishing the other members. A word to the wise though, if someone starts trolling, just ignore them as if they hadn't posted at all. Their post will be removed and life will go on around here as if the incident hadn't happened. We value our members, without them we couldn't have a forum. Life's like thatI just hope none of the that mess has followed any of us over here
Railphotog said:With this forum and Railroad Line Forums I also discovered recently, the MR forum is becoming more and more irrelevant to my interests these days. I don't really need nor want to read a threads that say "What kind of railroad are you?".
These kind of threads if posted anywhere else, will be moved to the ANPL CLUB CAR (off Topic) they contribute little or nothing to real discussions. Having said that, I admit they do perform one usefull function in keeping a group together until someone thinks of a good topic to discuss."What kind of railroad are you?".
