Thank YOU!
« on: September 13, 2011, 05:05:40 PM »
Hi all,

Every once in a while I get a nice complement about our discussion forum. Meanwhile, today I was reading another forum (shh, it is "Standard Gauge") and found their tone and demeanor, frankly, quite rude and disgusting. (Knowing some of the innocent participants personally doesn't help, I suppose.) Also, the moderators of that board seem to get no respect from its participants; and sometimes appear to have little authority.

Anyhow, I thought it would be best for me to pass the many complements I have received about our forum on to you, the WW&F forum members. For the most part, I rarely ever "moderate" anything. Instead, we have civil and fun conversations about the topics we share in common. And, whenever I have edited/moderated anything, the members have always understood why and respected that decision.

I think it's just a small indication why the WW&F museum is special.

Thanks for everything. Keep up the good work :-)

Doing way too much to list...

I too agree. Although my personal life has been keeping me away from the forums here alot. I do still love this forum to death and I love the WW&F to death and I must say that Ed and the rest of the staff memebers of this forum have done a great job at keeping this forum up and running. I must applad for such great research and tecnical skills have been brought out in this forum and I must say, out of all the 2 foot railway forums out there in the world, I personally think this one is above all #1 in my views. Congradulations for Ed and the rest for keeping the WW&F an intresting topic for all future railfans alike to enjoy and share thier views and perspectives on this great historic 2 foot railroad. :D
