Mac was "high jacked"? After Mr. Warfle's unacceptable behavior I can only expect an encore of ridiculous behavior and bad language. No thank you!

Re: Forum & Database Update

I have been collecting 1/400 and 1/200 scale models since 1998 and have seen the data base grow and become a useful reference tool for collectors, especially if you are a fleet builder. However over the past 2 to 3 years I ,and other seriously minded collectors, have experienced antics that makes my blood boil. I won't go further other than to say I don't consider rudeness or treating folk with contempt is acceptable. All I want to do is add threads that are relevant to the forum and make polite posts to those that have contributed in a like manner.
Recently I have joined other diecast model plane forums where the atmosphere is both pleasant and friendly, and to my knowledge, the moderators have never had to use the delete button. The lack of a data base is simply overcome by members helping members with any questions regarding past and present models.

Re: Forum & Database Update

You know Steve, for as much crap as you're giving waffle, without him there would be no database, not the one here on Wings900, not the one on the website you mention, none. He himself was the one that compiled thousands of fields of data and still does to this day. He was the one that put in all the input for how it was designed, and he is still the one that is trying to save this little hobby of yours. Did you know if it wasn't for him DAC wouldn't be here today? So while yes he does go out there and chew out an individual or two, I don't blame him. There's plenty of people in this world that need a good arse chewing and I'm glad someone is finally willing to stick up to them, some people might not like that but think of what he's done before you go bashing him. I imagine he'll have the last laugh if the rumors are true that the database and forum are going to separate and everything goes kaput.

Re: Forum & Database Update

I'm not playing sides here, but did you ever think that the information on the forum has to be protected, especially the database? It's no different then the legal jargon at the bottom of this website or any other? Did you ever think of all of the photographers who have to protect their photos? Or the logos on this website or anything else? Eventually websites do become valuable assets. In the end, from my conversations with him, he has very little overall to do with any of it besides putting the right people in place to make things run. If forum posts were lost, did you ask why and how come they aren't there? I hardly call putting legal protection on a website when he has offered his copy of a database for free usage to all of the members a very big thing to ask for, IMO.

All of this being said, the forum was great the way it was. When i signed up in '09 everything was perfect. Sure, i may have had a little trouble at first, but who didn't? I did however find my way around the site pretty quickly, and now i know where almost everything is. If anything happens to change that... Well, to be honest, i don't know what i'd do.

But one thing is for sure though: if this forum becomes focused on money, i am leaving. I know it costs money to own a website, but if W900 becomes one of those forums where you have to pay to be a member, im leaving. If i have to re-enter my collection, i won't. If the posts made so far are removed, im leaving.

Basically, if anything changes for the worse, im gone. I am out of here.

If anything changes for the better, i might stick around for a while longer.

At the same time though, all the changes i have noticed so far have been announced to the members before they were added. And if that stops, i'll be one step closer to leaving whether it's for the better or for the worse.

Like i said, when i signed up, the forum was perfect. There's no need to change anything.

In all reality, two of the original owners Todd & Jim were still active on this forum until recently and they have gone strangely quiet. All of the other volunteers that have been updating the database are no longer doing their normal activities (Carlos, Rex, Julian & others.... last update almost two weeks ago now... which is UNHEARD of...) something is much more then the public relations post by "Andrew".

If all of the team members left, and nobody is happy on the team, that means there are bigger issues at hand, which can be said of the failure of the owners of the website, and the necessity to have it sold off.
And the plot thickens....

Well you just seemed to be disagreeing with what anyone said. I'm not being immature, I am asking a question.
