There are still 4,839 Members. A large proportion of whom contribute. Some of those who resign frequently have alter egos in the Forum.

A large proportion of members, and I include myself in that catagory, do not post answers, for many reasons,
ie.... A topic has been covered by others with more knowledge on that particular subject or
a topic has been covered by others who have noticed that thread or question first, and have maybe solved that particular
problem. I for one see no reason to post just for the sake of it as some seem to do,  to be honest I really dont see a large proportion posting, but I do see a nucleus of about twenty who contribute on a regular basis, and then some of them  use the site to post between themseves , and what they say has no interest to other,s.
This week two of our most knowledgable members have left, you say that they have alter ego,s, maybe so, but no more I suspect than some of our esteemed moderaters, Why has the thread by Dicky D been shut down, he was only saying goodbye to other members, and he never gave a reason for his leaving, or slagged anybody, but was instantly shut down, like it or not that smacks of Big Brother.
I for one have learned a lot from these two guys, at least they answered queries ect in english, and not spent hours trying to write rubbish in a scots accent, between themselves.  I think that that there leaving is a great loss to Mayhem.

This is just getting silly.
Egos'? Second identities? What on earth are you playing at. "Playing" being the operative word here.
If your aims are to bring this forum into disrepute and quite possibly bring it to an end; then I congratulate you. You're doing a wonderful job. By your lights. Not by mine.
I've sort of noticed that quite a few "new" members are fairly "transient", have no input to anything remotely to do with model boats/ships and seem totally fixated on this "Chit Chat" site.
An imponderable problem for the moderators, perhaps.
I have no answer, but others may have. I hope so.  BY.

As with all things there comes a time in peoples lifes where sometimes you need a break or to really let it blow and get it out of your system, hell i know i need to sometimes, take a week out or something come back refreshed.
The problem is many take things to much to heart, i know i do sometimes and its not just on a web page it can be in the real world as well, September marks the start of the winter season, many forced back to the sheds to do something to keep there mind sane as the lakes are starting to become off limits for what ever reasons.
 The other, xmas is just around the corner and as all know can be a stressful time for all, combined with a financial obligation to put the family first instead of your hobbies many don't build or buys kits this time of year so what happens.. BOREDOM! and with boredom comes the range of a 'million' posts a day 99% of which are total rubbish just to say ' hey im still here take 2 mins out to listen to me gabble on about nothings' to which the normal response is what we have seen over the past 2 weeks basically a  big 'shut up were tired of hearing your drivel'.

My issues are and always have been the hijacking of posts to talk nonsense other then subject matter related and when you make a mistake to have that thrown around every other post as a full on face smacking.

everyone makes mistakes its part of life its part of a learning curve. you make a mistake you learn from it you move on.

Im quite a pig headed guy no doubts there but that's my character, but im also a nice person to talk to, i will always try to help even if i do get it wrong but the intension was good, regardless how others perceive it.

and this is the general way for all people on here i expect, but at the end of the day and im sure i have said this before on my other account, not everyone will get one with everyone and such is life, but frankly do you really care what words on a screen say about you when really your nothing but a 'avatar' no one really knows who you are generally (although some do, in which case they already know the real you and they wont judge they will just understand)

at the end of the day this forum is for the sharing of information and we all have one thing in common which is the hobbie even if we cant all connect on a personal level doesn't mean that we can't appreciate others skills, information & knowledge they have accumulated.

and there in lies the issues and i mean no offence to anyone with this comment but a lot are stuck in the past in an old way of doing something, not open minded enough to understand that things change, generations see things differently, the world is different to many compared to others and until we can all understand each other there will never be a universal peace or understanding between us, but until that time all i can say is when the **** hits the fan take some time out, come back refreshed, forgive and forget move on and enjoy what we all have come here to enjoy!  :-))

Prophet
A lot of what you have said in previous posts have been very long winded, maybe that,s your way. You seem a very knowledable guy, but you strayed away from model boats, and became very opinionated, there in lay your problem, Most of the disruption this last week or so can, in all seriousness be put down to your being a bit of a barrack room lawyer. If you really believe in all you say, why have you changed your name three times, you know you have, your writings are a dead give away, and  why do you seem intent on stirring things up on here. I quite liked one of your initial threads about building a springer for your little girl, that was an interesting thread with good subject matter, why, could,nt you just carry on like that and earn the respect of guys who have been on this site a long time.
Insead of having an opinion on every single thread.

err i changed my name once so i dunno about the other 2 your suggesting, you might want to get your facts right there.
 if you must know i have been active on the tug forum there not here, and im not 'stirring' things up im just pointing out the fact that it takes more then 1 person to tango.

in regards to my build threads until peoples overall attitudes change then no one deserves to see what i do.

no disrespect to anyone but i only came to the forum to share my knowledge base, to which many times including the 'springer build' i got my head ripped off - moderated -  over my interpretation of a plan that was supplied by the very forum im posting on! basically since then i haven't posted on any of my build threads, what's worse im not sharing the finished springer photos nor the photos and video of  my daughter having her first sail with me, I have now finished my huntsman build (paints hardening off as we speak)  yet again another build thats not going to be shared on here, and now im working on 2 tugs, neither of them are to be shard on here either!
i fail to see why i should waste my time sharing my personal enjoyment with others who will at the first instance stab me in the face and laugh!

 believe me i have no issues not coming on the forum and not sharing my knowledge and experience with anyone here, if that's the overall feel of others then tell me now then i can quite easily stop then its not my loss its yours, do you know when i shut down my Prophet account i had over 200 emails sent to me asking why i left and where my posts are and when am i comming back?

just because a small minority don't like my opinions dose not mean im disliked.

and that's why i have returned today as a small minority of regulars asked me to, trust me when i tell you i can quite easily just close the lid on my puter and not waste my time with those who don't appreciate my knowledge,

i don't get paid to come here and help out, i do it as a good deed the same as most of you, which a lot of you should bloody remember sometimes.

its not a **** stirring matter its a matter of respect, if you don't show me some the hell your getting some back. you have to earn respect and to be honest many of you lost mine a few months ago with your own 'opinions' over something i want to do!

so here it is if you dont want me here on the forum tell me now make it an easy choice not to return because frankly after reading that little 'opinion' of yours just reitterartes my overall feel that this forum is not worth my time nor effort, no wonder - moderated - <*<

I joined the forum, not long ago to learn about model boats.

I get the impression from the last few weeks, I have joined a group of cantankerous old "last of the summer wine" type wise guys, who can't accept anything unless it is done just how they think it should be done, and take great delight in picking holes in other peoples opinions.

I don't understand whats going on as I thought this was a great forum when I joined. I am a boat newbie, and the knowledge of the members, and the skills on display are awesome. What gives?

I don't really know ANY of the members on here, but having just read this post, I have to ask. "noone deserves to see what I do"? really? Ok. That makes things a bit clearer.

Don't tar every one with the same brush Matt.  There are still a lot of very experienced modellers on here happy to share thier tips, tricks and skills with anyone so concentrate on those and don't be put off by the arguing and opinionating that goes on occassionally.

Bunkerbarge is right. Mayhem is a pretty relaxed and friendly environment where almost anything goes. Most of the time that gives it a positive atmosphere but the occasional disadvantage is that every now and again we do seem to get these 'grandstanding' periods where a few people want to assert themselves one way or another and friction results. On other Forums this would probably not be tolerated. Model Boating attracts people from a wide variety of backgrounds and once you get off the subject that we all have in common then these differences can sometimes become apparent.

All we ask is that discussions be conducted in a polite and friendly manner without becoming personal. Some people find this difficult to accept and object to being moderated when they overstep the mark as defined by the Mayhem ethos and rules. Most people settle in fine, but if they feel that the Mayhem environment is not something they are comforatble with then there are plenty of alternatives which might suit them better. Martin's policy is to run Mayhem for the benefit of the majority and that's a very sound approach to doing things in my view.

If you look at the posts over the last week or so, despite the 'excitement' the Forum has been chugging along just as usefully as ever, just a bit more 'froth' than usual on top!

I think the dark night are drawing in and people are spending far too much time on the web rather than building and sailing!  %) We're all on here to enjoy the hobby and promote it as best as we can. Come on guys and gals, people make their own choices and should know how to behave. Let's get back to what we're all here for, boating not bickering...Dave  O0 O0 O0

I recently had a state-of-the-art defibrillator installed inside my chest. The nifty thing about this particular gadget is that it sends a daily ECG report to the local hospital via a wireless link from the defib' itself and then to a device which is permanently hooked up to my telephone line. If for any reason my heart is going out of sync, the folk at the hospital immediately receives the relevant warning on their computers via the telephone link, and then they holler to me that something is amiss and to get my butt into the hospital pronto-like before I end up having another heart attack.
Clever stuff, eh?

Heart attacks does funny things to the human psyche - it totally changes one's outlook on life. for instance, there was a time when such terribe spelling as that written by our new man Master Cheif would have sent me scatty. But these days, even taking ito account the fact that he cannot even spell "cheif" correctly means absolutely diddly to me at all. Furthermore, the fact that he sings his own praises all the time and somehow believeing that much smarter members than him are even remotely interested in any egotistical "advice" that he's so hell-bent on trying to share - even that doesn't bother me one iota, either.
In fact, this is the best thread that I've read in yonks. Mr Master Cheif just cannot seem to grasp the fact that folk are hinting to him to belt up, and yet he still persist in trying to shove his holier-than-thou ideals down our throats. This thread truly is the funniest thing since waking up half way through the defribrillator procedure and overhearing the Cardiologist telling the nurse a joke about the the Pope, the Nun and the choirboy.

I would like to make a suggestion drop the chat section / humour section on this forum far too often it seems to get out of hand then BIG BROTHER in the form of a moderator uses their power to cut the thread because it runs against their political ideology.
THIS IS THE ONLY FORUM ON WHICH I HAVE NOTICED THIS LEVEL OF SILLY NEGATIVE COMMENTS.
I will do my part by never responding to this section again honest (until some ***** winds me up again :}

Question.
Is there a way in which the Chit chat posts could be shown on a different recent posts section as I think they can somtimes swamp the general Model Boating threads.   :-) That way if you want to chit chat you go there, away from the main board as a chit chat thread can lead to so many posts in a matter of minutes that it moves the general posts into oblivion.

Incorrect spelling is annoying but it's not a deal breaker (sorry, too much American TV!), Mayhem is all inclusive....

Thanks Bunkerbarge. I know I am a relative newbie, but I think I have been on here enough to make a comment.

I certainly don't tar everyone with the same brush, I don't want to take sides either! I see a lot of sense talked on this forum, I just find it slightly odd, I am a regular member on a fairly small flying forum, where I know many of the posters in real life, and on a large model car forum too, although I don't really know them personally in the same way. This is the only forum I have ever joined where there seems to be a string of people throwing their toys out the pram. (just to clarify, some of the posts I have seen of this nature have seemed reasonable to me, and some not, so I am not critisiszing everyone who has posted a "make a statement" topic).

I have to say the chat section is important in any forum, it helps us to find out about each others personalitys. I don't think it should be dropped. I have never seen comments of the type we're discussing on another forum, I don't know, but I think it's because if people say things that are well out of order, they pretty much get shut down straight away by everyone who reads it and told where to get off. I don't agree with posts being locked or removed because they say something a mod doesn't agree with. I don't agree with Dicky's farewell post being locked at all. I don't know the guy, and I don't really know what has happened. I know that if he had posted some inflammatory comment digging holes in the forum, then it should be banned, but I don't see the problem with the post????????????? (apologise for excessive question marks).

I have read posts from first timers where their spelling and punctuation was critisized, in fact it happened to me when I first joined and I take pride in the fact that I never use a spell checker because I think we should all be able to spell, but we can't all spell and we have to accept that. I hate text speak, and on all forums it's banned, but you can't criticise for the odd word or phrase that has become common useage in english. In FACT! All you criticisers who use smileys, they are "txt spk" so I suggest you get over yourselves.

Anyway, I have said before I know I am opinionated! So I suggest you all consider yourselves told! ;) and get used to it. :)

***One of the biggest concerns of the moderators right now is the level of sniping going on. And it is clearly seen on here as well.
It needs to be respected that people here have lots of knowledge. Some of it not all members will agree with. The writing style of some members may not be appreciated by all.

But that does not excuse personal attacks. And it may not be noticed but there are instances of members ganging up on others. I don't mean in an organised way, but a de-facto harassment of members.
There are rabble rousers and there are followers.

This is very much against the spirit of mayhem. It is unnecessary.

Please stop sniping.***

Matt I think you make some very good points and, refreshingly for one who considers themselves opinionated, in a polite and well mannered way.  A lot of longer standing members who consider themselves equally opinionated could do well to take note.

Having been with Mayhem for a few years I have seen a number of ups and downs and I'm sure we'll go through more as time goes by.  Unfortunately what seems to get in the way more than anything is peoples ego's.  Too many seem to think that because they have posted more than anyone they have a right to thier opinions over any one elses or because they build more models thier techniques must be correct etc..etc..  At the end of the day if every one respected each other there would never be a problem, but sadly human nature doesn't work that way.

As regards locking DickyD's faewell post, unfortunately when people decide to move on it seems to be the norm to try to cause as much disruption as possible in the process.  Why wouldn't some one simply leave for instance, why do they have to advertise it?  We all have varying ideas of our own self importance, usually quite out of synch with everyone elses' or reality, and we like to think that without us the world will fall apart.  I am well aware that if I didn't turn up to work tomorrow things wouldn't stop and if I left Mayhem it would carry one equally as well without me but some people don't seem to be able to accept that.  There has been a lot of behind the scenes communications going on regarding DickyD and his displeasure at some recent events.  Unfortunately he couldn't accept the dent in his ego and so preparred to cause as much unrest as possible as he departed.  His parting swan song post was calculated to cause this unrest, in conjunction with pre-preparing other members to add to the post, so it was locked to prevent that happening.

At the end of the day we have lost a valuable contributor, which is sad, but no-one is any more important than the other members and no-one is above being brought into line.  There are a number of members here who have recieved some form of moderation or another and have admitted it was right, apologised and carried on with life.  I have a lot of respect for them for simply being honest with themselves and accepting what was said.

The future of Mayhem is in the hands of people like you Matt so I hope you can see why things are done the way they are and enjoy your time here and become a valued contributor who can help others along the way.

Wullie, If you notice, I pointed out that some text speak has become so common in everyday useage that people use it in real life. I tend to restrict myself to that, language does change over time, whether we want it to or not.

Also, did the irony escape you? Did you not think I may have been doing it on purpose?

All tents in the UK have air conditioning. The on switch is normally indicated with a "zip". Likewise, the entrance to the en suite facilities will also be indicated with the positioning of a "zip"  :embarrassed:

hi all

I have been deliberately keeping out of this riff-raff and you may moderate this if you wish -

 Sorry John,moderated,  your comments are just not unhelpful at the moment.
 DickyD has made his point and left because of unreconcilable differences with myself and the way I choose to run this forum.


 I hope I'm seen as acting in the members & forums greater interest.  I'm not going to please everyone all of the time but I do
 bend over backwards double trying to supplicate all Mayhemers... just not possible in every case.   Admin.

hi all

Yes John the truth did hurt. Dicky was also responsible for bullying another member to leave the Forum, please include ALL the facts and not just the ones that suit your present cause.

Does the truth hurt????

Derek, you misunderstood Martin's offer of a tent - it was for your boat. You must sleep under the stars yourself - isn't that what you all do over there?

 {-) thanks Colin.....I will keep this thread open & hopefully full of humour....just prior to the Bill  :police: @ 2030 hours on ABC1 tonight  >>:-(

Not sure if I can make Wicksteed ...our OZ national carrier Qantas has just kindly quoted $23,270.42 for my still......unfinished 1800 mm long model of PS Decoy....baggage class to UK & return to OZ  <*<

So best that Martin keeps his mouldy [with holed sided..without en-suite facility <:(] tent for an other unsuspecting visitor  :P .....Derek

PS....the stars here tonight are hidden by a rain cloud......... >:-o

Is a  jpeg  image the same as  jpg  and if so why can't I upload  jpeg's  <:( <:( <:( <:(

Allowed types listed are, "Allowed file types: txt, doc, jpg, gif"
Title: Re: All is still bright in the House of Mayhem!!
Post by: Colin Bishop on October 02, 2010, 12:24:50 pm
jpegs are usually the same as jpgs so there shouldn't be a problem, but have you reduced the file size to under 160kb? The files that come out of the camera are much too big to upload on here.

Colin

Post by: RaaArtyGunner on October 02, 2010, 12:29:08 pm
Colin,
Tried to upload an image and told me error wrong file type, can't remember exact wording but think was told JPEG wrong and listed the acceptable ones.
Will try again and note the error I get.
Title: Re: All is still bright in the House of Mayhem!!
Post by: RaaArtyGunner on October 02, 2010, 12:33:51 pm
Tried again and pasted the error, see below  <:( <:(


An Error Has Occurred!
images.jpeg.
You cannot upload that type of file. The only allowed extensions are txt,doc,jpg,gif.

.......  looks like RaaArtyGunner has been on the TURPS again   ...he cannot get his images straight  <:(

An Error Has Occurred!....he says....... ;D ;D ;D

Let us pray for this lost soul in his (Queensland) land of lost electrons................ O0 <:( :kiss: ....Derek
Title: Re: All is still bright in the House of Mayhem!!
Post by: Colin Bishop on October 02, 2010, 12:41:42 pm
In that case try renaming the file to give it a .jpg extension. In Windows you have to set the display to show the extension, see here: http://www.mediacollege.com/microsoft/windows/extension-change.html Hopefully that will do the trick.

I have had that problem myself with files sent to me.

You may say that I couldn't possibly comment!  :police:


Much simpler smileys, consisting of type characters eg :-) were used on teletypes when I worked in air transport back in the eighties and subsequently in email all before the dreaded mobile.  :-))

 It looks like we're loosing 2 of my favourite Mayhemers.  I'm really sorry to see them go but I've spent many, many hours
  working behind the scenes this week trying to smooth  things out but I failed. I fully understand any disappointment they may
  have in me.

 Richard, John, you'll always be welcome on this forum and I hope we can find a way facilitate your return to the Mayhem
 in the not too distant future.


 But what is done is done and we (I) need to move on.
  PM email if you wish but any further comments / posts on the forum will be removed.



Hey!  I know it's called Mayhem,
 but lets talk about model boats again!
