It also is not the best title for our thread, as it implies a haphazard, or "backwoods" approach to model rocket design.



I have to disagree. If it truly implied "backwoods" it would be called "Rockets I done thought up by my ownself".

I didn't say the designs were "backwoods", Bill, only that the thread name might have given that impression. It sounds like something that was "jest throwed together" without any forethought. Looking back at the long list of work represented in "Scrounged", it's nothing if not thought out. We may have reached a point where we can visually see what a model needs before putting parts together, but we got there by a lot of trial, error, and computer use. I wanted to present that idea in the new name, that we are a group of developers using modern tools and materials with classic, traditional building methods to produce really great models. It sounds a little more "professional"...

I'll be up north snowmobiling over the holiday. Hopefully Buzz will be in town to do this.

..... maybe I'll be up north snowmobiling too?????

Hey guys, I know I mentioned splitting this up before and let it slide. What I can do now, if it makes sense, is to split off everything since 1/1/07 to a new "Scrounged '07" thread. Then I'll lock the original thread and maybe rename it "Scrounged '06". When '08 comes around I can do what Craig suggests. Even if I'm a week late I can always split off anything since 1/1 into the new thread.

(Mock 'Wild Kingdom' voice) While Buzz and Scott trek deeper into the arctic wilderness, I'll keep track of their progress from a location farther to the south...

Hopefully not freezing myself...

I've already created the "Designer's Studio" thread for new messages and designs, but I like the idea of breaking the old thread into year-based segments for archiving. Sorry I didn't get on this sooner.

OK, the thread has been split into Scrounged 2006 (closed) and 2007 (open).

Question What the ???

I go and leave you guys alone for just a few days and look what you do . Just split my whole world in three seperate threads .

Grinchy Yell " There'll be hell to pay!"

Besides I was hoping to soon reach that 1000 post and then onward to 10,000.

Small Question Added:
I would like to be able to always see the Scrounged-Up 2006 thread when I go into the Projects Threads. I there a way that I can mark it so that it will always appear when I log on. I use this thread alot when using rocksim for reference and hate to see this thread lost in the system.

Thanks, JP

Maybe they can make that thread a 'sticky'? So it is always at the top of the forum...
