    I have of course. I also know that if you’re blocking your IP on this site, chances are good that you’re a scammer. This isn’t WikiLeaks, nobody needs to conceal their identities.

    Forum Rules info

    As for the terms of use? There’s a “terms and rules” at the bottom of every page which explains the conditions you agree to when creating an account.

    Forum Rules info

    The forum rules are simple, “be nice” and “no religious or political debates”. If you have a big long list of rules, you have trolls and wanna be lawyers arguing “it doesn’t say that!” Kellyann vanished for a few reasons. 1) her profile photo seemed to imply interests other than trains 2)...

    Network Issues

    OK, they think they've got it fixed. PHP scripts that keep bookstore prices up to date were bogging things down and network issues on top of that lead to a fail scenario. Has anyone seen any more issues in the last day or so? We did have one, they had to reboot to do some of the config stuff...

    Not only suggest using plywood, but don’t skimp on it. Get a decent grade and I like 3/4 inch so it won’t sag or bend when you climb on it. It’s the foundation of your railroad and nearly impossible to upgrade later. Not the place to go cheap.

    Network Issues

    The server network the forum is hosted on is having issues this weekend. They’re working on it (part of the hosting is 24/7365 monitoring and support) but it seems to be a bit of a challenge for them. Apologies if things seem slower than normal.

    Guess it’s time for a reminder... There are millions of places on the web you can debate politics. This isn’t one of them. Religion and politics are off topic here, please respect those guidelines.

    As for the bookstore. It is an Amazon Affiliate store, as somebody else mentioned, so no, I don't get to set prices. I have a list of new and used books that I think may interest our members. If you buy one, I get a small commission for referring you. The new books are easy, they're list price...

    So, are we running a "house of ill repute" featuring only Asian ladies? No, of course not! The ladies are of all nationalities, we can't discriminate! ;) The ads are from Google and they're presumably a legit business offering an actual dating service (no winking or nudges involved).

    Did U Tube Start Charging for Background Music???

    They don't charge for it, but they only allow you to post certain music. If it's copyrighted, then it has to be from somebody who grants permission for it to be used on YouTube. Details (they're complex) here: https://www.safemusiclist.com/can-use-copyrighted-music-youtube/
