had a post on this DG in 4 months,could we make it a RRDG(rant and rave DG).We could post good/bad trader alerts and anything else(hobby-related,but would be locked on other DGs)and the other DGs could be used for what they are intended for.......Dan
I sure have gotten a lot from this DG since August 16th.This is constructive comments-British and Commonwealth and that is fine.I'm sure you have nothing to worry about;it'll be here.I was just making a point.This and other sites have no problem holding a model companys' feet to the fire;why not retailers and traders??????Dan
hey,this DG is fine,as far as I'm concerned.I would like to see a DG where we could at least keep the retailers and traders working for us and not against us.Cromwell and Tankrats come to mind.We would have the ranting and raving(OK,discussion)in one place and could keep someone from making a big mi$take.On the other hand,a good trader could pull in more bu$ine$$.Advertisement is everything,so they say.A reward for being a good steward of the industry.
The 'feet to the fire' thing came from the fact that we are allowed to slap a manufacturer around if they produce a 'bad' kit.Someone starts talking about a bad trader,they get locked down.On a dedicated site,maybe we could find out if the trader in question is trying to do better or is still ridin' the same horse.Maybe save the community some heartache or even get some better service.I doubt that it would happen,because there wouldn't be enough interest.But,as it stands,you miss things if you don't hit every DG all the time.Come to think of it,it wouldn't work.Everybody would be trying to contact Cromwell.......Dan
if we had a ranting and raving DG,you wouldn't have to participate and ruin your perfectly good day.See,that is the benefit of it.Anybody starts a rant on another DG would get locked out.The rant DG could be the complaint dept.......Dan
Sorry Dan, but those things tend to turn me away quickly, there is too much in life to rant about as it is. My modelling is my release from all that rubbish. I am sure someone out there gets their jollies that way and I know a few like that and all they do in the end is to ruin it for everyone for the sake of ten seconds of infamy.
Sure some kit manufacturers and retailers need a jolt but I really don't see the need for a specific area and it will quickly turn into a personal slanging match. We have seen and heard it all before.

I visit this site (ML) at least once a day but I have never noticed this DG. I like the concept of the group build and I thought that this topic would be chugging right along. I guess not with no new post since Aug 17. Thats a long time.
For the Commonwealth DG. You can rant a little on the General forum, too much ranting is bad for you anyway.
Like others i noticed this DG only after Feb 2010 and presumed it was closed. At the moment i'm building a lot of British stuff and have lots of questions and models to post. Dave.
