    'er we go again...

    So I was looking in the completed sections and have come to the conclusion that things could be better. I fear that there are a lot of completed GB builds that get missed when most people good directly to the completed sections for all the builds to see who has finished what. The only thing is...

    Can normal service resume

    As the title says, over the past few days people seemed to be getting a little stressed over one thing or another, mostly because if someone writes something different people can interpret it in different ways. Can I just clarify that Patrick was NOT banned, but he was shall we say put on the...

    Hints and tips for newer members...and the not so new

    It has been brought to my attention that some posts, mostly those that are asking for help, could be a lot more detailed. To help those that are seeking help, here are a few suggestions: Always look to see if there is a section in the forum that is most relevant. Title the thread in a more...

    Picture posts...

    I note a rapid increase in the amount of people posting some form of 'funny' Picture by way of a comment or reply. Please remember that John has recently moved to a new server due to needing more room. Filling the forum up with these so called 'funny pictures' is not, in my mind what we are...

    Whoops!

    It would seem that in my confused state of mind, I had made a small error regarding the dates on the GB's. To get them all to fit in the calender, I had stretched them to four months, so you also get a whole month longer to build in. I have now corrected these dates, so relax, you have a...

    Server move

    Sorry about the downtime over the past few days, it didn't go as smootly as I would have wanted, but everything should be ok now. I've moved the forum out of the community directory as it wasn't needed and I think that was causing problems, you might need to clear your browsers cache, if you...

    Moving posts...

    Hello boys and girls. Can I ask that we try to post in the sections provided for our builds. It would seem there is confusion as to sci-fi and Figures. I noticed it just now when looking at Monica's Dracula..Which was in Sci-fi, under construction. A closer look revealed several figure...

    At the suggestion of several members, we will give this a try. However there are some rule which shall be followed. In the spirit of the Forums these rules are, for a short time, open to amendment. I am writing these purely on the fly and will probably miss something. Any comments and or...

    Site down time

    Just to let you know that I will be moving the site to a new server but I'm not sure when. I've got till the end of March but I will probably do it a lot sooner, the server we are on is getting old now (in computer terms) I've had it for 3 years so it's time to move, and the new one will be...

    Whops I made a boo boo.

    Due to me being a slacker I forgot to make an introduction post for this. It was the intention that the buildings in this GB should be whole and not a ruin. HOWEVER, as I forgot to make that clear, Ruins will be allowed as long as they are the predominant feature of the build and not just as a...
