How about a sticky ( How to ) page that would cover setups, nitro tuning, electric setups, etc... Just my 2 cents.

The ability to vote people off the island. Ignore just isn't enough for some people.

The moderators end up starting little cliques where a certain few can post whatever they want where ever they want while others get banned for even a small disagreement with the "wrong" member.
You mean the pig stye known as RCG?

How about total ignore. When you add someone to your ignore list there is positively absolutely zero trace of their existence.

I never used ignore so the change wasn't important to me. I think the site works well though uploading pics is a little more convoluted than other sites. It is enough where I don't upload a pic very often because of it. As far as the argumentative folks, well that is life in a social setting. They have their experience level, they just don't understand that their experiences aren't the end all be all nor are their experiences the final word in a subject. Nothing worse than a self professed "Expert" that dogs the crap out of everyone else because he can do a few spiffy tricks and spends money on a bunch of stuff. It's off-putting and insulting and frankly pretty needless.

Yeah I do like this site the most out of the available heli sites and the classifieds are top drawer. Over the years it seems to have calmed down. I remember when I first started viewing this forum before joining, it was flame fest after flame fest. Hyenas on a carcass, you didn't dare say anything or you got jumped by what was most likely teenagers or adults with teenage level social skills. It seems better now. Bearing in mind I feel a well adjusted teenager with a passion for the hobby can contribute to a site like this. Just like a 40 year old can tear it all down.

Any of them.

Every site with a bunch of moderators ends up the same.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Some one mentioned avatars at the start of this thread. Just my two cents, but I Hate the dang things on the other site. I think that they are inmature and all they do is get in the road. I am 65 years old and I am probably showing my age but who need the avatars. Grow up kids.....LOL

I think RR is rather unique in the rc world. I hope it stays that way.

That said a scrach n sniff would be nice. Just lightly, nothing with lots of 'twang

Avatars allow you to personalize your postings. Instead of just a name it's a name plus picture. Sometimes the avatar is humorous, sometimes not. I like avatars personally but I am fine without them.

I am not talking about the ones under your name. I am talking about the ones in the body of the message, Very distracting to me.

I have to agree that the product affiliates seem to be everywhere on this site pushing their goods. I don't know if someone is genuinely answering a question I may have on what to purchase. I am in the process now of determining what new helicopter to get which you can't even ask on this forum. You either get someone trying to sell you something or an angry salesman when you tell them to beat it. I realize the decision on anything is ultimately mine but it does stink.

As far as adding moderators to the site.... I tried the other site and immediately left due to the moderation and the 'god' like attitudes. I have to admit though I have contacted the moderator here and he is far from friendly in my experience. I view it like this.. without the members there is no Runryder, HF etc... Forum software is available everywhere(custom or established) and it's truly the members that should be thanked.
