Quote from: Peter on June 05, 2018, 16:45:28 pm Unfair... all a long long time ago, a bit like the posts on FS until last night. Will be nice if people can still pop over from time to time, now that they've found FS again.
Quote from: philbert121 on June 05, 2018, 16:55:35 pmSo happy to hear this news. Now I'm more than happy to subscribe a donation per month to stop having this scare again. What say thee all?
Quote from: Wiz on June 05, 2018, 17:15:36 pmIt was a long time ago and, honestly, I can't remember what the spat was about? I was far more uptight back then.

Quote from: fly-navy on June 05, 2018, 19:05:16 pmI am all for a registration fee, even an annual DD to maintain the site.
Quote from: JohnP on June 05, 2018, 20:26:12 pmThe exact details are lost in the mists of time... But there was, some years ago, an appeal for cash to help fund the forum, as a result of which I've been happily paying a very modest sum annually - I think it's a tenner? So the mechanism exists, somewhere! It comes out of my paypal account if that helps trigger any memories!

Quote from: pooh on June 06, 2018, 09:46:42 amDelighted to see there has been a reprieve. Note that last word !The site nearly died. Whilst Wiz's time commitments are a major factor, combining that with having to subsidise the site financially tipped the balance towards oblivion.In another life, in a galaxy far away, I was a member of another, totally unrelated site which faced a similar fate. The site owner couldn't support the site financially, so I bunged some money into the site and it survived - for a while. Then it failed. Why ? Because people didn't contribute their posts, they visited but didn't post.Sites live or die for two main reasons. Cost and content.This site now has had a lifeline thrown to it on the financial front. So we now have a couple of years to get the content right again -threads like the Black Sheep thread are what we need, friendly banter, build threads, discussions over how/what we fly (or don't), opportunities to meet.Advertising needs viewers, if ten people visit the site per day it doesn't take a genius to realise paying good money to advertise isn't going to butter the proverbial parsnips. If 100 visit, perhaps the parsnips get the butter. People visit because there is interesting content.We can't help but suffer the consequences of the ARTF version of life. Click, click, get an instant fix, don't build, buy. Don't think, google. So if you want to see this site continue, participate, contribute and stay away from Facebook etc where the "site" will fade as soon as something more transiently interesting flits past.

QuoteI appreciate that would lead to a traversal of the Meridian for you Pete but you have to live dangerously occasionally
Quote from: PDR on June 06, 2018, 16:07:29 pmWell as I wasn't thinking of giving it an undercarriage I would be stunned to see that as well!

Quote from: PDR on June 06, 2018, 15:08:36 pmAnd with that thought in mind - while hunting and cataloguing plans a few weeks ago I came across a plan for a 1/10th scale Hurricane which I drew up (loosely based on the shapes of a single-channel model) and built for an OS40FSR back in 1980ish. Would a 50" Hurricane appeal as a build thread?PDR
