  • Quitting the board

    So I decided to quit posting here for good.

    I have been an active member of this community since 2016 and also a big contributor to the old database. I have not gotten used to this new board too well, and I have been posting a lot less. But a few days ago I decided to go all in again and start to contribute to the database. I made quite a few posts but apparently, even though I checked every car, I made a couple duplicates as the cars posted were not linked on the casting listings.

    After that, I got a totally inappropriate message from the database admin, basically calling me a newbie who can't do anything right and telling me over and over again, how hard it is to remove/merge the two topics. So that made this decision easy.

    Thanks to many awesome board members for many great conversations during the years. I will pop here to check the inbox to manage ongoing things, but I am not posting anything here anymore after this thread.

    Sad to read this.
    I hope this was just a misunderstanding and everything will work out again.
    I always knew you as a very productive and communicative member in all forums.

        Please reconsider, leaving this site is not a good solution.

          I have the same story, recently returned from a few years absence and posting to the database becasue there were no picture links to the list and I got the same notification, I thought about leaving but decided to stay and not post to the database unless it was a totally new line that was not here, like McDonald's. Please reconsider, your input is important, and meaningful, and the hobby needs people like you to actively participate.

            Ripa, please check your PMs
            The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

            Thank you for your understanding.

              That would be a sad thing to see you stop posting on this board, I really hope you guys can work something out so you'll stay, as I'd also have always enjoyed reading your contributions over the years.

                      I sincerely wish you would not go. I will greatly miss seeing your collection and what future dioramas you might build. I especially looked forward to seeing a Cars & Coffee type event at your parking garage diorama.

                          I too hope you will reconsider. The actions of one do not reflect how the vast majority of us feel about your contributions here.
