Leaky valve recently posted a thread asking "is this place dying?" The general thoughts were that it wasn't but it is certainly slow at the moment. I don’t think anything has really changed since the forum started back in 2012 so maybe now is the time…… lets blame it on the 7 year itch So lets do some brainstorming What would you like to change, we want to hear it all, the good, the bad and the left of field ideas. I'm sure there are some things that annoy you and equally some things you would hate to see go. There may be some things that we can’t change due to logistical limitations but let’s see what ideas you have I know this section is dedicated for 'forum ideas' but realistically there hasn't been a lot of input so I’m giving this a kick in the pants. We want to keep it newbie friendly, we have a ‘Spread the love’ history of helping newbies on their bumpy journey and that needs to continue. There are many Social Media options for people to showcase their work and get their name out there so I'm not concerned about that side of things at the moment. Some of the suggestions already in this section of the forum include • a Manual Section. that would be do-able, but maybe a section with a suitable title that could include manuals for common airbrushes, Paint TDS's (technical data sheets), General info for compressors. • Group Challenge – we all had so much fun with the Gargoyle– No time limits, everyone has the same reference, but you need to do a step by step type of thread so that newbies can see that there is more than one way to approach a subject and what a little bit of artistic licence can do to change a reference. Mr.Micron did something very similar with the ‘big boy/big girl challenges a few years back, I joined in and it was great fun and pushed me. Maybe we need to rename the “OC Challenge section” to “Challenge yourself” • A ‘old timers/old fart’ section ? where those that have been members for many years and know each other VERY WELL can sit and relax and talk about random stuff without fear of offending newcomers • A ‘DIY section’ which could be a sub forum of ‘tips and tricks’ ? We really don’t want to get to a point where we have a forum section for everything that we can think of but maybe we just need to refresh the line-up of forums @Leakyvalve @markjthomson @AndreZA @Ronald art @Mr.Micron @twood @Franc Kaiser @MarcosD @DaveG @Zotilraxx @SiRoxx @huskystafford @Vladimir You guys all commented on the 'is this place dying' thread, so your input would be very much appreciated.
