Coronavirus - Covid-19
« on: March 21, 2020, 04:51:29 PM »

 
As the Coronavirus is such a serious topic, and probably over the coming months may have devastating effects in many people lives, we have decided that it is a topic that is best not discussed, or argued here on Modelboatmayhem.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51711227 ( BBC )

https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response (UK government )


Other than Personal notices,  cancelled or postponed events, other opinions / discussions / topics will be deleted.

That'll do me. A hobby forum should be a place of refuge.

Afraid I disagree, it affects us all so much we all feel it.  It should be allowed to be discussed within reason.

It might be worthwhile having a moderated thread for people looking for support or even just someone to talk to.... (Skype, messenger, etc)

Sure he has enough to contend with on Mayhem and face book, let alone another thread,  or media platform to control which would get out of hand as they always do.

HI all we are at this moment in information overload reference the above. I hope to get some building done over the next 12 weeks so lets use Mayhem for our hobby and not another media outlet. Were ever possible let us support members who may need someone to chat to.

If, like me, you are feeling anxious/unsettled then the advice on this website is very helpful https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/coronavirus-and-your-wellbeing/
If anyone needs to chat then there's a private messaging system here on Mayhem. Meanwhile I've just been outside in the sunshine and given the grass its first cut of the season. It's made me feel a whole lot better.
Look after yourselves and stay safe.

Well said gentlemen!   :-)

We have our own little 'community' we've built here on Mayhem.
We have got to know a bit about each other, even in a small way, so lets build on that.... and continue to encourage one another and 'be there' for each other too.

We all in this for the short and long-haul together.

Well said :-))


There is enough depressing stuff to read and live through at the moment- I donít want to read about it on my favourite modelling forum as my work at the moment is stressful and depressing enough.
We can all help each other by maintaining a bit of normality on the forum and if you need help we are, of course, here to help.

Why is it that those who don't want to read about Coronavirus feel the need to click the link to a topic that is about it?

Not interested = Don't click link.  :-))

I agree with others, Ban Coronavirus on the Forum, come here to get away from stuff like that, enough of it on the news, also these things tend to swamp the forum in postings, pushing anything actually interesting of the front page..

Accepting help and putting up with the restrictions beats the heck out of the alternative.

Hi Regiment.  I am OK with the vac but I think you are going a bit too far with the washing machine!  Think of the implications for all of us if our ladies ever found out we could use the washing machine!
  I used to repair mine (good old days) but denied all knowledge of how to operate one.  I admit to doing the ironing now and again, but washing machines!

All the best, keep away from the rest of us and hope we all come through intact.

Hi regiment, you have got away with doing household chores but it's surprising what you can do
You can even peg the washing out in this fine weather {-)


My wife bless her suffers from MS so I have had to do everything as a matter of course but l find
Ironing therapeutic I really enjoy that, and cooking, baking etc
