Please note that queries to Paul Freshney as Model Boats magazine editor should  be via the contacts given in the magazine or by email to editor@modelboats.co.uk  and not as personal messages on the Forum.
 
Anything to do with the Forum or the Website generally can be via personal message to myself as I will be monitoring them.
 
Thanks,
 
Colin

I do recall that Paul asked a question of Vinnie relating to the submission of articles for publication on the site,  given the remarks in your posting can we assume that the same pm procedure will apply to this process?

John, I assume you mean articles posted by Members as opposed to those published in the magazine? I can't give you an immediate answer on that as I haven't started looking at the article facilities yet. My immediate priorities are sorting out the reported glitches on the Forum and then updating the outdated magazine content on the website. As I think I've already mentioned, the basic instructions for administering the website run to 16 pages and are still not yet complete so there is a lot to take on board. I am however compiling a list of queries and requests for attention as soon as time permits and have added this one to it.

Hello Colin
 
Yes it is the posting of articles on the site to which I refer and thank you for your rapid and candid reply.
I agree that the outdated content needs addressing and thank you for being so proactive in dealing with our glitch problems, it must be a very difficult time for you keeping all of these balls in the air.
 
Regards
 
John

Hello Colin
 
You have been a very busy bee sorting out the outdated content and the home page is getting to be very interesting again.
This is really good work and I am sure that you will be keeping up the new high standards, it looks like we might have the makings of a great site after all.
 
I look forward to a far more dynamic site in the future.
 
Regards
 
John

Thanks John, still quite a bit to do yet to get up to date though. I do have an idea or two to keep the site looking fresh but I'm keeping them up my sleeve for the moment.

Hello Colin

It has to be said that the site is looking a lot better and that the level of member involvement is slowly increasing, you have even re-vitalised Pauls faith in the site, and so I believe that the congratulations are well deserved.
New ideas????
 
I hope that you wear short sleeved shirts

John

Bob,
 
No, they are probably not. There are some ongoing bugs in this area which technical support are aware of. Apparently the whole website including all the magazines are affected. There are a range of issues which have been prioritised and which are being worked through.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
