Hi all

Part of my plans for 2013 is to cut back on forums and focus all of my efforts on my site. This way I can post more article like entries and those who are genuinely interested will know where to find my stuff. Some of you may have already signed up to my workbench and anyone on YMR is equally welcome too do so if they wish.

This will be my last posting on YMR, I'd like to thank all of those who have followed what I am up to and provided comment and I hope to see some of you on my site.

All the best

Jim

That's a great pity Jim. :cry::cry:

I can understand your point about double posting but many of us, me included, struggle to keep up with what's happening on here at certain times of the year and to visit an additional site could be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

I've really enjoyed seeing what you do and have learnt loads from your posts - even if I don't have the skills to achieve the same results .............:oops::oops:

With regard to comments, these are perhaps not as plentiful as you'd have liked but, to me, there's little point in just saying "great" for the sake of it and, unless there's something specific we want to ask, just seeing your results was always worth a look - they were always "great".

Maybe you'll make YMR an exception ........................:roll::roll:

Hi Jim would just like to say how much I enjoyed looking through the stuff on your website. With regards to forums I know where you are coming from as I just dont have the time anymore to be as active as I used to be although I gave up posting on quite a few forums due to lack of intrest from others. Maybe there realy arn't that many intrested in AC modelling ! :lol:

All the best Jim I will continue to follow your progress via your website. ;-)

Don't you believe it Dave. :shock::shock:

The power system isn't that important - it's the modelling that counts and yours is up there with the very best of them. :thumbs:thumbs

Sorry Peter but that paragraph sums up exactly why I am cutting back on forums. You see I have added a workbench to my site where people can comment or sign up to email notifications when I add a news or workbench item. I can't make it any easier and yet still people who claim to be interested can't even be bothered to click a link and stick thier email address in.

I've spent a decade or so spoon feeding stuff to people on forums who really aren't that interested, for that decade I've been saying the layout is 20 years away and now I don't think I'm any closer. I dread to think of the time I've wasted posting stuff on forums.

At the end of the day if the layout is ever going to get done I have to stop wasting time posting stuff where it's not wanted and the fact that only two of you have kindly commented backs this up.

It's not personal but it's how it is.

Cheers

Jim

Hi Jim,

I used to follow your thread avidly when you were building structures but recently it has mostly been about modifying 00 Gauge locos and rolling stock which, as an N Gauger, is not really of much practical use or interest. I do look in on your web site occassionally but I don't register as I don't wish to receive notifications of things that will probably not be of interest.

I've had another look at your site, but it is still the same for me -- unreadable.

A black (or preferably dark grey) background is great for a picture gallery, but it's hopeless for text. I can't read large chunks of small white text on a black ground without getting a headache.

Sorry, but there it is.

Martin.

And I agree with Martin - photos perfect  but text-- not really very viewable.

You've never mentioned it before Martin (so no point saying its still the same if you never said anything) However sign up for notifications and you'll get them in normal email format - problem solved.

Exactly my point Trevor. I'm wasting my time posting stuff on forums when it's of no interest. This way those that are interested can follow in one place. Those who aren't, like yourself, dont have to wade through it.

No one needs to appologise for not being interested in what I'm doing, I know it will only appeal to a specific group of people. It's not a problem.

Cheers

Jim

That's the problem. For you Russ's site works. For me it's scruffy and doesn't flow at all. You cant follow my site, I can't follow Russ's. No one solution is going to suit everyone.

To be fair though Russ' site isn't one, it's an article. There's little difference between that and the stuff you can download from the articles page on my own site. They tick all of your boxes.

It's a bit like train sets really, But I will have a play with the workbench page later and see what it looks like reversed. If I don't like it I'm going to put it back though.

For me - it's not a commercial concern. I'm inviting people to follow along if they want too. If they don't then fine. The whole model is built for me, I'll only exhibit it because people have said they want to see it. I don't even like exhibiting!

Because I'm doing this hobby for me is not a problem. If you think it is then that's your concern.

Cheers

Jim

Well taking Martins advice I contacted a dozen of 'my readers' that I knew would give me honest feedback (and not just tell me what I want to hear) and asked about the colours of the workbench page.

Not one wants to see it the other way round and 5 of the 12 said they actually found white on black easier to read than other sites. I guess the masses have spoken and seing as I have a couple of hundred subscribers and only Martin and Ron have ever mentioned it (ive never had an unsubscribe) I guess it's not an issue for the rest either.

So, with thanks to Martin and Ron for thier feedback, I'm afraid it's out of tune with what I and my readers want so it's staying the way it is.

And with that I shall take my leave. I wish YMR and it's members all the best.

Jim

I have followed this thread from the start and have been following your email updates and if anyone has never looked through this thread it's well worth a look, top notch modelling.

Hi Jim.  Super layout from what I have seen so far, but your 2030 or never? comment gives me, and no doubt other members, some concern if we will still be here in 2030?   Best wishes. Kevin
