Lets Get More Users

Hi all I have noticed that the RCGroups forum is still thriving and was wondering if we could push this forum on there when new or returning users pop up. I do think that this is a better solution as the RCgroups is just one thread and doesn't have any structure.

Its also because I'm finding myself reading two forums to catch up. :lol:

Don't know what you think

Maybe, just maybe it would also help a little to install the tapatalk extension to this forum. (https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=2267791)
At least quite a lot of my forum users are happy that I installed this extension to my forum...
I for myself I am always happy to find a forum which makes use of tapatalk for my phone.

One more thing: I am also missing a 'Forum overview' link at the top - not only at the bottom right...

I'd tend to agree with you. Things can get quite lost at "hobby" forums.

Plus, you'll end up with a hand-full of Phantom Flyers.......that are totally clueless about a product "they know everything about".
Really - Really good forums take awhile to get going. I've been a member of airlinepilotforums.com for about 12 years now. When we first got started, there would never be more than 2-3-4 folks online. Today, we easily see 1 to 1 1/2 thousand daily. It took 3-4 years to get to that kinda number. So have patience, to see if this things got legs enough, to support long term growth. You done good work so far, so it's hard to imagine serious flyers won't end up here. Might not be a bad idea to contact Xiro. Possibly to include a re-direct to this forum for support & flying discussions. Don't see any conflicts that are apparent doing that......maybe that'll work [?]

If they'd be clever, they would do that even without asking them...

Assuming they're knowledgable of this very forum. Then again, they might be the type that needs some prodding.
