Rules?
« on: December 23, 2011, 09:32:09 PM »
Dear List folks:
    This is interesting being part of the launch of a new forum in paper modeling. No Rules is good rules? or Keep it clean and calm.
Thanks,
MILES

Right now...for me...its the place for "News" from Dave's Card Creations.
So, I guess I set the tone for those posts.

But it is also the Message Board for canadapapermodelers...so there will need to be a set of guidelines for that area.
Only thing I am immediately concerned about is the format of the posts within the Canadian Model Directory.
I'd like to follow a pattern for posts in the Directory so its easy to look for and find a model.

For the rest of the discussion, I hadn't put much thought into it.

Heres some general rules then...

1. No Porn
2. No Spam
3. No Cats
4. No Plastic

Note: Rules to be amended when I feel like it.

I know that there are paper purists out there.  How much digression from paper as the main part of the model are you going to tolerate? I.E. wooden dowels, balsa,putty. Etc.etc.

Mike, this particular thread (and Mile's first post) have to do with basic Forum Etiquette and Rules of behaviour.
I think Miles is asking, do we allow some of the off-topic banter that occurs on other forums.

[My answer is "you are free to joke about Useless Cats all you like!"]

Your question is about what Model Builders tolerate in respect to building "paper" models...right?

Are you asking this question in reference to a specific model or build?

or are you just asking in general?
This would be a topic for the General Discussion area.
In fact...I think I will go start the thread right now!

THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS UP!
