I think need to get rid of the skinners, and movie makers forum and keep them it in GD, seeing how slow they have been the last few months, even gdd has gotten very slow and everyone is posting posting in ORR.

With olegs ready room more then half the posts in there are GD related topics. I think ORR should be used for techinical discussions of fms that have data sources, graphics, pdfs of flightmanuals only, if it doesnt have a source or proof the post will get removed. Also the community seems so seperated.

We should have Il2 modeling development here at the ubi forums instead of netwings "ken stallings is a great guy for allowing there.

Also it seems the majority of people who fly dont post here anymore but post at simhq even oleg himself

The stickies seem to be misused as well if favorite topics are going to be a sticky the front page is going to fill up with them

If it were up me this would clean up the place alot and make it easier for the moderators to control.

I would like a OT forum here but it would be alot of work for the moderators and currently cwos is the place to go, ubi should put the link on the front page of the site.

Also the front page of the website should be updated more with Eastern Front History articles

Well Thats my suggestion for making this place better and would like to know if the communuty feels the same way I do about this place

I think it would keep the forums more active, right now ORR gets the most posts, more the GDD, And might bring back more of the people who enjoy the sim alot and fly every other day.

Gibbage, jippo and all the modeling progress shots should be here.

Yes I totally agree with the 3D modeller forum! I have never done any game stuff but I have been doing CG for a little while. Check out some of my stuff.

I made this 109 model this summer, before I even knew about IL2. I haven't worked on it that much so the texturing isn't finished, but I would love to have a 3D forum where we can post tips and get feedback, etc...

The other organization you mentioned looks good too. Maybe even change the new Modeler forum you mentioned to an Artwork forum or something and it could be related to all things art-sy with the game, ie. modeling, movie making, drawing, whatever.

GD as a lot of OT, which I like, but your right in that you could stick half of ORR's suff in here. They're still much more focused, but I don't think they want it strictly technical. With GD the supposed intent is still FB related but it seems OT can run the gamit; people want to socialise, and crap. In ORR the sentiment is similar without the crap.

micky that looks good you should head over to www.netwings.org (http://www.netwings.org) and speak to gibbage also read the faw, i can see that that model has very high polys fb is low polys for fighters. Kinda messed up this post only gets 4 replys and aviation related discussions, stories etc get so many posts. I wish mods and more people would reply, and help taking steps on getting this done.

I agree LeadSpitter_
The boards aren't really being used for their true purpose. ORR has been a nightmare for some time now.
