It's just a matter of whether people are interested in advertising really.

Well, we will see. I can't wait for the first issue! By the way, I was on your site and noticed the forum - and decided to test it out. I only posted what I did for the reason that I couldn't think of anything else constructive to post.
Thanks Ben. Much appreciated. We'll see how things pan out

Re: Forum & Database Update

Hi everybody,

Sorry I disappeared over the weekend, it's tax time here in the UK and I had a tax return to do so I didn't get time to check in on this thread until now!

For those who wanted a little more background; I work with Hobbytalk Ltd (we're the ones who bought the Wings sites from Todd, Jim & Michael and who sold ownership on to MAS Media). I didn't previously work on the wings sites, I was mostly running some of the diecast car sites, I just came over here now to make the announcements and help out Justin.

During Hobbytalk's ownership of the forums (last couple of years) we never got involved in moderating or otherwise screwing about with the actual forums themselves and neither ourselves nor MAS are going to be moderating forums or telling anyone what to do on here or anything like that going forward - as some of you have pointed out, the community is all about you guys and the mods have always been drawn from your number; that continues as it always has. Justin & I have "admin" under our names because we have admin powers in case we need to fix tech stuff on the sites; as above, we will not be meddling with threads or moderating or anything like that unless we see trolls who've posted porn or anything like that, in which case we can kill it. Just like Hobbytalk did, MAS Media will just be running the tech side of things and the ads and mods will liase with them, but the mods will be totally responsible for running the community. Ditto if something goes wrong with the site (like the private messages stop working for example); MAS are the ones who'll fix it now.

As per Alex, also, they have technically owned the sites for 2 months now, we just hadn't transferred serves and were waiting til that was complete to do so. They also bought slotforum, hobbytalk and several other sites from us and as those had been transferred, if you go to them, you'll see the same announcement was made there and that nothing's changed on those communities.

@Alex, sorry - we didn't mean to take away your modding powers, I think you got changed down from Superadmin and weren't installed as moderator instead! I'll fix that.

@michael737 - just got your PM, thanks for offering your modding services, if nobody has any objections, I will give you mod powers too.

If anyone else wants to become a mod, as there are a few vacancies, please just send me a PM.

Re: Forum & Database Update

Baskingshark,

I would like to issue a public apology to you and MasMedia. I'm not too big of a fan to change and the threat of taking away the site. For after you said in the post above, I believe you that you state the site is staying and you have the respect of the members on this forum. I hope I didn't ruin my respect from you.


I do believe Alex should be given back his mod. power over anyone else.

Thank you for the confirmation. As long as little changes, we're all happy

I am happy to help out as a mod, and have sent you a PM. Always happy to help, again, as long as things aren't changed for the worse.

You're kidding, right?

If you let him mod he will more than likely ban everyone who says anything against him, basically he's childish.

Re: Forum & Database Update

If you're gonna be a mod, you can't insult other members. Either just say thank you and move on, or just ignore it.
