Just click on the Thread menu and there is an option to send a message to a moderator to move the thread.

However the other contributors to the thread might be less than delighted to find that the thread has been moved to a forum that they do not subscribe to.

Have you guys thought what kind of "sticky" information that would be helpful to new people? Maybe list of tools? Glues etc.?

Current list of kits and/or manufacturers maybe, since kits seem to be getting harder and harder to find. List of balsa suppliers maybe. List of links to plan sites like Outerzone & Hippocket and maybe the links to plans threads here on RCG & RCU. Probably need a volunteer to keep it all current and updated though since it's very frustrating to click on outdated links that no longer work.

I hadn't thought about that-there was a discussion recently,that got a good response for a young person starting out,while waiting for his kit.

Sounds like a necessity to me.

No one has said that there aren't balsa builds, they have said there isn't one place dedicated to them, big difference.
You hit the nail on the head and that is what I have been trying to say all along. Thanks for trying to explain the issue for everyone to understand.

You are not building so why are you even in this horse race? Why did you even show up at the track?

This is my last comment to you. I will ignore anything further.

What you see here Robert is a textbook example of Recreational Arguing. Some feel the need to argue about something solely for the sake of arguing. Some people seem to take pleasure in arguing with others and if they feel they "won" an argument, they are happy. Sadly, this is not against RCG rules and the only prevention is just not acknowledge their posts. These RAers will try and try to get you to argue with them, say nasty things about you in response to others to bait you into arguments, but hold your ground and say nothing back to them or simply say you are not interested. In time, one can hope they move on to other "victims."

In the 7 years here on RCG I have seem so of the best in human behavior and unfortunately, have seem some ugly things as well. I think RCG and other forums are an extremely valuable resource but I realized long ago that no everyone practices the golden rule. Another

Recreational arguers lose interest when they don't get a response,much like bullies.....In fact they are bullies of sorts,never accepting things not going their way,then buddying up to try to sock it to you again.

I've had my fun with a couple here,but eventually somebody loses interest(usually me), and sees it for what it is.

History is just that....let's look to the future.

Utter nonsense.

I comment on these proposals and I have done for years because I care about this website and I have a reasonable understanding of how it grew and how it functions.

The post above is exactly what I was speaking of when I mentioned making these issues personal. It does not address in any way, shape or form, the issue itself, it makes totally unwarranted accusations of "recreational arguing" and it does so towards a particular poster.

I've asked you nicely before and I'll ask you again. Your continued harassment is not welcomed. Please stop.

There is no harassment on my part Frank, I am merely replying to the points that you are making in your continued posts on the topic, including those which have been incorrectly accusing me. It would be extremely simple to stop making those false accusations, but when they continue, then it is my choice whether to respond to them, or not..

Dang, put it to rest. The new forum was voted on and passed 97 votes to 10 votes and is on the approval phase with TPTB. If there is enough interest in it tomake it viable, good. Otherwise it'll go *poof*.

I wish it luck.

You seem to be describing yourself here. Since you keep making repeated postings arguing with and insulting leccyflyer and you then have the cheek to advise "holding your ground and saying nothing" I'd say that makes you a "recreational arguer" par excellence .

And now I've joined in....but that's o.k. I freely admit I sometimes find a little amusement from these goings on, particularly when there are several people who all really cannot stand not having the last word .

BTW leccy,sorry but on the main point you're wrong. Until this new forum suggestion there has never been a single forum dedicated solely to wood builds of anything no matter what type of model. There have been many forums where these builds were and still are appropriate but none where the ONLY criteria for inclusion is "made of wood" and it's considered reasonable to mix up electric indoor models, gas giant scale, 3D models, sailplanes and, since it's under Aircraft General, presumably autogyros, ornithopters, free flight and control line models....just so long as they're wooden .

Thank you,slipstick......Rctrainerplane and I spent a lot of the summer trying to get it right....You finally conveyed the idea across,much better than we did.

His original idea was to gather everyone who HAD AN INTEREST in any kind of balsa (read wood) build in one spot to share ideas and promote building.

Nary a mention of WHAT you were building,as long as it was wood.

There's a thread elsewhere concerning wetting balsa to facilitate bending it-the information there is priceless-those are the ideas we wanted to present here.
