Vern, us non computer guys see everything in KBs and MBs! grin 300kbs would be great though...

You can get there with no resizing with just cropping sometimes and its very easy to do. Resize & Skew also, just lower the one number from the 100 depending how big the photo is,,,and you see how much bigger it is on your screen as soon as you pull the R&S up. [I probably described that all wrong]. sleep.

* And the forum itself..... You get what you put in.. Put in nothing and you'll get nothing. You want to get technical,,go for it, you'll probably get responses other that Oohh and Ahh...
All the sites are the same,,no cursing, no political.. To see every other day 'Is my SS cap skull real?',,well, I'd rather not.. There are good questions to be asked,,Police eagles,,dam,,I can't tell anymore. A real helmet with NOS decals on it,,,can anyone tell?
Anyway,, you guys want it busy? make it busy then.. Crybabies aren't cool....

GD was once the undisputed king of military forums!

No dispute over forum needs! Some might disagree!

But talking is good!

I fear,but could be wrong that some might have settled in to 5 or 10 members
on site and be content!
Big fish in small glass of water!

Some might have given up or just got tired! Many moved on!

I stopped posting! Walked away! But always checked in! Only took 5 min and I was gone
due to nothing happening!

Sure once in a while something might grab my attention!

Behind the scene we need new ways to support the forum and make it work!

If we don't the future is murky,my opinon!

GD should not be afraid to face your critics,take the blame and bounce back strong!

Will you or others be under scrutiny? Yup!

Nothing wrong with discussing our shortcomings and failure! You can't hide!

Whats worse is if nobody cares!!!!!!!!!!!

No body want to get involved,no one wants to be part of the new begining! And thats what I suggest!

Some might not want to hear it,some supposed to lead are silent, It hurt me to see this!


Some might not like what I say but It had to be said! Too bad! It's being said behind closed doors
and its the truth!

The hobby and its members have changed! Your either part of the problem or part of the solution!



I thought many areas need to be put together! Make strong sectons not 10 weak sections with I got a belt buckle to show every 6 months!

Thats why I suggested to Dave! Let me and Ryan do a collectors corner and get some life in it!

Or if you don't want me and all my pics and topics put some one else!

You could combine all previous posts in one new section!

You need strong areas that bring visitors and posters! You have some but add a few to them to work together!

i lone mod does not work as maybe they don't have time or ideas wher 2 or 3 in a section feed off each other!

No we are not going to replace the legends that once roamed the sections! But must find new ones that will not have what they
had but they left sone super info and pics to work with!

I believe some mods or members should tell Dave and Vern what they bring or could bring a section or for that matter the whole forum!

What do you have too offer members! What will you do to get us rolling again! Its a fair question!

Dave and Vern
What are you prepared to do and get us back on the road!
Once you have been a champ! That feeling does not go away!

I am partial to the Honor ring forum though.
I don't know of any other forum that has one dedicated to it so I am grateful we do.

Those new sizes sound like music to my ears! Thanks!

I know if it was me and had a chance to help I would go and get a German daggers forum banner
made and put on my tables like I did for World Military forum for Bob Rodgers yrs ago!

Covid is breaking and shows will open up! But down the road the forum needs to show the flag as they say!

Talk to new folks and invite them to a new begining!

Maybe print out some flyers for tables! Back then Bob Rodgers got me all that stuff plus table cloths!

Jim Wallace was around! Think I have some pics!

I know I would put my money where my mouth is for table banner! Others could step up if they wished!

New collectors could get pics taken like in the old days as they vist!

Forum owner could purchase one or 2 and send to members that are setting up at show! I don't set up in California,or such
but some one does! Then that member sends to another who is setting up at gun show or such!

Just idea's that are free!

I might be dumb as rocks but I can't be the only one to have some ideas!

If there is no interest I will not bore you! I will just ride off! Its up to all of you!

Hey Paul. You have some good ideas. If you agree, I'll set up a "Collector's Corner" forum with you as the Mod. We can even move this thread as your first post wink I still have the master for the original GDC flyers. I can email the master, or print and mail them out. Just let me know how many you want. I'll also look into having some table covers made.

You are cooking now! I would be happy to help! Just imagine if Dave had those SS daggers photographed.
you couldn't keep people away!

See how fast things can role! Thats a start for sure!

I would like Ryan Sellick to help!

Others would be welcome!

Thats great news as I didn't want to leave like shane!!!!!!!!!!

Please think of a combo sports,music car section!

It would be a blast! Oh Andy the military nut would approve!

Thanks

An example of Paul at his very best. Paul had the passion for sure....but in the past few months even Paul gave up on the forum. He tried his best RIP

He probably slowed down mainly because of health....

It has nothing to do with a particular site.. - The bigger 'Brown' site.. Might seem very busy,,,but IF I hear one more 'Is this SS eagle / Skull any good?,,' I'll go nuttier than I already am!,, It is every day! All day,,and their different subject areas are slow too...
. The German Military FundForum? was always very busy.. Last few years,,,super slow. There are categories there that haven't had a post in a year!

The History / research sites do weirdly slightly better but still a overall slowdown.. One thing for sure,,,each has a particular subject area or 3 they are very good in.. GDC,, has a few they're excellent in wink...Primarily its a dagger site. ALL the other sites check here. They might not post but its because they can simply look back with a search and with a dagger,,,the info is here..

-- We can blame many things in the slowdowns across the boards on the different sites.. The bad economies, lack of authentic items,,lack in a younger group coming in to the hobby,, the much better high tech reproductions,,prices!,,,and,,what just happened here,,the loss of a veteran members contributions due to death. :(,,etc. etc.

It takes commitment to post anywhere.. You need a good camera [unless your phone is that good],,language skills,,civility whistle... Don't really see things improving so much anywhere.. IF anything,,check the memorandum forum,,,. Got very big the last few years.. frown... Enjoy it while you can I say. ,,,and make sure your families have the proper info on how to dispose of your marvelous collection when your not here!
