...and it's goodbye from him and it's goodbye from me.
« on: June 04, 2018, 09:06:20 AM »
Ok, hold the front page

Forget everything I said about closing for business.  We're not.

I am flabbergasted but I'm delighted to say an anonymous benefactor has stepped-forward to bale us out with sufficient funding to allow us to continue for at least another two years and perhaps quite a bit more when topped-up with a little advertising revenue.

Yes, you heard that right so, forget what I said, ok?  I need to go have a lay down now, I'm flabbergasted but very, very thankful.  Until now, and after the flying bug left me a couple of years ago, I presumed this place was dying a death but I now realise just how much it means to so many people.  That, in itself, is very humbling.  I better go tell Gerry the news!


Dear all,

It is with some regret that I have to announce that this forum will be closing its doors on 30th June 2018.  Since we launched in August 2001 we saw incredible growth up to the point it almost became a full time job for myself, Gerry and our fellow administrators and moderators but over the last few years we have seen activity slowly ebbing away, largely due to the increase in Facebook Groups and other forums.  Today the cost of running RCMF outstrips the income generated from advertising by some margin and this is no longer sustainable.

It's been a blast.  We've made some great friends for life but now, it's time to move on, the world has moved on.

Thank you all for your participation and your support.

Regards
Nigel (aka Wiz)

Wow Whiz!

That really is very sad news  :'(

Many thanks for all of the time, effort and resources over the years from those that made it happen. 

It has provided such a useful source of information, inspiration, support and, on occasion, entertainment.    I along with many others have turned many  "virtual" friends into real friends and its passing will still be a great loss.     The diversity of threads across modelling, "other technology", and real-life subjects has been spectacular with so many thought provoking stories and characters (and, of course, there's been the odd pra.. but this is the real world).

Thanks once again

Alan

Noooo!

But totally understand where you're coming from. We have a similar situation, as I'm sure a lot of clubs do, in that our website forum for club members is very quiet.
Times have changed thats for sure It's a real shame that there doesn't seem to be an easy route to integrating a members only forum with social media.

The problem our club has is that there are people who do social media like FB/WhatsApp/Instagram etc and there are those that don't, but do like PC based forums

We'll be going back to printed newsletters if we're not careful!

Thanks for all your efforts Wiz - have enjoyed being part of all this

This is a real shame for me. Not all of us are Facebook and other social media users, so will really miss this forum when it goes.
Anyway, many thanks Wiz and co for all your efforts in bringing this forum to us all over the years.

I have so much enjoyed my time on here, and the help, support and advice that I have received from everybody has been invaluable. I can well understand your decision - it must have been a hard one to take.
All the best for the future, Nigel, and to Gerry, and, in fact to every member.

I've been on board from the start of RCMF's humble beginnings with Wiz at the helm, and of course not forgetting Pheasant Plucker without his input in maintaining the forum, who knows might have happened..... ;D

I'm sad probably as much as anyone else that the forum is closing but as the saying goes "All good things.....etc.. "

We've had some great times, not just on here but at the fly-ins that have been organised over the years starting with the Linton bash, again thanks must go to Leon for organising, the Old Warden events that been staged. Thanks to BigA, Andy Symons, for organising the fly-ins at Castle Howard and to the members at WMFC for later events.
If I've omitted anything please....

Finally a thanks to my fellow Administrators and the Moderators, and you of course the viewing/participating members.

Oh Dear
What a sad end to such a wonderful model based forum.
I am really sad to hear this news, thank you very much
for all that you have done for us without much thanks.

As I have said before, you don't appreciate what you
have until it is gone.

I am really shocked at this news.
This forum has provided an invaluable means for me
to promote my numerous events and I have really appreciated that.

Another sad day for the modelling fraternity.

Thank you very much, you will be so sorely missed.

Yours Sincerely Phil Goff

Sad but I think inevitable. What's going to happen to the forum data? can it transferred to a searchable website. It would be a shame to lose this resource.

Sad news indeed Nigel, thank you and Gerry + all the mods. Had some fantastic times and laughs on here, learned a hell of a lot, made some great friends not too many enemies and laughed along the way. Good luck in all your future endeavours, let's all try to keep in touch, suppose I will have to get on faceache now.
It's been a blast thanks everyone.

Folks, for those that want to keep in touch and have a "forum-esque" place to discuss stuff, Facebook Groups works very well.  Free & easy to set up too.  I run a local community Group with 16,000 members and it's really taken over from this kind of forum.

It looks as though I may have to bite the bullet and have a Facebook account. Having absolutely no knowledge of how the facility works, is it easy to find the sort of group you mention.
On a personal note, the support I have received on here during my darkest hours recently will never be forgotten
Thanks again

I would echo the remarks of others; this has always been a good place.

We've had our ups and downs - I think our highspot was when we clubbed together to rescue a damsel in distress. That's something we can all be proud of, regardless of anything else that happened.

So thankyou Nigel, Gerry et al. Thanks for creating it, thanks for sustaining it and thanks for putting up with me. If it can't continue then that's just life, I suppose. Sad it's going, but happy to have been a part of it.

Michael,
I am in the same boat as you.
I vowed I would never go back to Facebook
after my account was hacked after about four days.

I would like to go where all the other RCMF's are going.
Particularly the Black Sheep Sqn.
If that means Facebook well reluctantly so be it.

Added myself to it. I hope all will 'bite the bullet'. I already have some of you as FB friends and it would be a loss to all if we lose any. .you dont need to go on any other FB page if you dont want to, just set your posts to 'friends only' and bookmark this page.

Sorry Bob but I think that does RCMF a huge disservice!  It will be ok for general tittle-tattle (if you like it sequential and easily lost or forgotten) but a very, very poor substitute for what we had here.     

I whole heartedly support efforts to encourage Mike to join the new group, along with everyone else I like to think the community has provided him (and many others) great support at times of need and to have a place to go is great - but it won't be the same, not by a very long chalk.

But do join Mike!

The Facebook Group doesn't have to be "Closed", I set it up this way to begin with, it can go public but we need a couple of admins over there to filter-out the spammers because you'll get plenty of those!

Thanks Nigel, Gerry and the mods, I will miss this forum a lot, faceache is no substitute as it has no permanency and no structure.  There are build threads and projects documented here and nowhere else, representing probably hundreds of hours of effort and all this will be lost - its very sad.
Good luck & thanks again

Will think hard about it overnight as it is something I always said I would never join. However I do think k I am missing out on a lot, and if I do decide will sort it tomorrow when our 3 year old great granddaughter can run me thorough it. :D :D
Now that I am older I thought it was nice I seemed to have more patience,turns out  I don't give  a sh*t

Your not wrong about facebook, it's full of utter morons. However i do use it but just to keep in touch with distant friends. I am also in a couple of closed groups for subjects i'm interested in.
learn to ignore the bits your not interested in and you'll be ok.

Sad news,  :'( I've always enjoyed coming on here, even when there have been disagreements the usually just result in humorous light banter, unlike some US forums which get downright nasty.

Best wishes to Wiz and all the other admins and moderators for the future.

I usually check in here daily and have done so for a long time, so will miss this place and the characters on/in it.
Iíll join the FB group and add it to my many other model and motorbike groups....

Thanks to Wiz and all those who made this place a centre of entertainment  and information.

This is indeed very sad news.   It will be the end of an era.  :'(
Many thanks to Wiz for hosting this splendid forum.  I shall miss it.

I have no interest in Facecrook, so I am not sure what happens next.  $%&

Dear All

I think I might have found a solution for our problems with the closure of this site
and for those who have no desire to sign up to facebook.

There is a site I have been a member of for years,
it is quiet at the moment so we will have to see if we can liven it up.

I have posted something under events and
the Black Sheep Sqn. is under building site.
Just to check that it is working.

It is very similar to this site.
Look under forum when you get there

www.flyingsites.co.uk

You will have to register.

Regards Phil G.

Hopefully John,
We are about to liven it up.
It is very similar if not the same to this site
so no one should have any problems using it.

It is there so why don't we use it.
