Scale Sailing Models

Hey folks;

I started the process to have a new forum created here at RCGroups for Scale Sailing Models.

The premise is that we have a growing number of people becoming involved with building schooners, square-riggers, SC&H kits, etc and all the threads on this subject are split between Sailboats and Scale Boats tossed in among tug boats, racing yachts, and Footies.

Existing threads; some of which are listed in the Forum Request; would be moved to the new Forum. This topic would combine them under a common banner.

Please visit and reply to this thread

We are currently on step #2 below; looking for 50 replies and we have a way to go - come over and reply!

The rules of this site to start a new forum topic are:

Quote:
1. A new forum may be proposed by any user with at least 100 posts. Please give us detailed information so we can understand your request. Use this form to guide you. See an example request here.

2. Once your thread has generated 50 replies from other users who agree that the proposal is a good one, compile the list of names and inform an admin or moderator. The site management will review the list and most likely call for a vote.

3. The administrator will create a thread with a yes/no poll attached to it, and will announce this thread in the appropriate area. The poll will be held for at least 10 days, and it must gather at least 75% "yes" votes.

4. If the vote passes, the new forum will be created but put on a probation period for at least 30 days. During this probation period the forum will be monitored to see if it is being used. If the forum proves to be unsuccessful, it will be removed.

5. If the vote or the probation fails, the process will have to be started over, but no sooner than 60 days, please.

Please note that the site admins may decide to circumvent the above process, if the idea is particularly strong.

I think it would be within the rules and spirit of the approval process to PM or e-mail others that we know who would respond positively.
I'm going to my PM file and will contact others that would use the new forum.

Threads that outta go in Scale Sail

The existing threads that better fit into a Scale Sail category are listed below in no particular order.

I assume only the site's administrator can move the threads, but they will likely want the starters of the threads to Ok, or request, any such move. The user of the threads starter is listed to the right of each thread title.

If you are the starter of a thread listed below AND would like the thread to be moved into the Scale Sail category (When, and if, it's up), please respond HERE with your titles and we can be cleared and ready for action.
