One thing that has occurred to us is that we ought to sort out a way so existence of the forum is not dependant on one person. At the moment Emrys holds the domains which are the key to the forums identity on the web and rather than just transferring those to me it would be nice if we could transfer those to some sort holding organization so that if either of us gets run over by the proverbial bus these are not lost.
But there is no Gn15 equivalent of say the 009 society - I rather suspect this is in part because GN15 Gnutcases tend to be a little on the independent side, verging on anarchistic. So how can we organize ourselves? do we want to ? can we ??? or is it all unnecessary?
Well I think that's great progress Tom!
(I have never been one for wanting to join a local model railway club and there are several web based sites that seem to be full of over opinionated perfectionists that take things far too seriously and I steer well clear of those...)
Perhaps this is now the time to create something slightly more formal for Gn15 but I know it wont become some evil nasty monster as we are not like that on here! But simply for the sake of keeping this wonderful gnatterbox going.
Tom if you are ok to host this then if say 6 of us become The Formal Fat Controllers and another 4 or so are Moderating, I feel sure we are heading up the right track.
I am more than happy to be one of the above and will chuck money behind my big mouth too.
Lets get on and get this sorted
