If anyone is a Facebook user I've started a group for the builders to post pics and updates to once the kits start arriving next year!

Could also just post to the forum. I'm sure there will soon be a specific thread.

I'm of the Facebook generation! It sits as a neat app on my phone, quick access to my pictures and can share with friends and family if they're interested in progress.! If nobody else uses it it'll still be a record for me!

Part of me agrees, the problem with the forum is that it's quite long winded to post pictures to compaired to social media outlets. But I'll still post to here.

Facebook doesnt really work in a discusional format from what I've found, its an ideal platform for one off's and a gathering of like minds for an event but trying to follow anything on there just seems to be a complete nightmare and its not possible to actually search for anything of use, within seconds stuff gets buried in folks posting pictures of their dinner and stupid cat videos which can be seen on youtube anyway and I'm really not interested in someone "liking" some random twisted Daily Fail story either Rolling Eyes
But as I said its very good platform for the ealier reasons above and for that it cant be matched really.

Interesting! I'll certainly be a regular on this forum, with my limited skills and the first time a project of this scale I will definitely need the advice and guidance from more experienced people! I am a Member of a few Facebook groups for Mamod and Wilesco owners as well one entitled miniature traction engines who regularly post and since it's a closedgroup all I see is pictures of members engines and projects which is quite interesting and when someone posts it flashes up on my phone lock screen so I don't have to view all the other trash on there! I asked a question in the miniature traction engines group about STW and advice on going ahead and within a few hours I'd got 10 replies, many more than on this forum in the same time frame! There also seemed to be several comments on the forum about lack of posts and not much activity so just thought another avenue might be welcomed. From the responce so far it looks like it'll just be my own digital build diary to direct friends and family to should they show a glimmer of interest!

My only qualms with the Forum,as is,is the fact that people have a habit in posting there own build diaries,in the general model Sub-forums.
If the kept their own builds within the "Owners Photos" ,it would enable people to search,for important info i.e modifications,shortcuts,pitfalls or just general advice, rather than somebody whittling on.

I dropped Dean an e mail to see how they are progressing and first kit is still targeted for January and the castings for the saddle are on order! I really need to start buying some tools!

People on this forum are pointing out that not much seems to be happening!!! Not a surprise if new builders are starting Facebook groups for specific builds. It wonít be long before there will be no input at all on this forum. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Far better to post here, although I've been neglecting my duty and not posting so I'm equally guilty for a quiet forum.

Rob, at least you post on the forum even if itís infrequent. Not everyone can spend all their spare time building. I am in the process of drawing up the log pole trailer from the photos and drawing you sent to me a number of years ago, so might start another thread in the not too distant future.

It's the second time you've had a dig about me starting a Facebook group, I get it! As can be seen, I had an update following an e mail I sent to Dean so thought I'd share it here first, I don't think I'll be in much of hurry next time!

No personal dig intended. Itís just that if more and more people branch out to other social networks then the forum becomes a non-entity. This would be a shame that all the knowledge that is gained by current builders will be overlooked, especially if itís a new product that is being built for the first time. By all means publish your considerable efforts on Facebook, but please copy it to this forum as well, there are still a lot of people who donít want to be involved with social media. If I had the room I would certainly be joining you in the roller build, so I am looking forward to your input as and when you start your build. Very Happy Very Happy

Hello,


As being one of those who post a diary (sort-of) in the sub-group of the engine they built and also is not so keen, or interested in Facebook and the like, I still would prefer to see the progress of others in one place - the STW forum - rather than all over the different FB groups. Also I hoped to get and really got help and support from others here, whereas in FB I seem to see more posts of "look I am here" kind of thing (my 5 cents!!) but, yes, might also be due to the groups I look at.

So to me, let`s continue to post here where the STW famliy meets (or should Embarassed ) and if one really sees need he can still post a link to the other side.

Elwood

As a afterthought: How would you others out there like to have it: the built reports in Owners Group or in the sub-group of the real built? Comments please - oh, yes, that would be off-topic here, too Sleep
