Not a bad idea. Especially since the forum search engine is absolutely worthless.



Wait, so its not supposed to show you results for your search criteria as anything that uses the same letters in any order?

OK, I'm something of a game spoiler sometimes... How about putting all posts about modelling in one forum, and then having a really good search engine that lets you prepare a list for youurself - with all posts about german aircraft in 1:72, or all posts about gravity feed airbrushes, or all posts about humbrol paints, or all posts about decals printed in italy?

'Cause if we split the forums really fine enough, we will have categories with no posts at all or just one post in them, plus lots of mis-posted posts (hey, wrong category!) and most viewers will use "recent posts" anyhow.

For now a zero-cost solution is to take a good internet search engine of your choice and type: cs.finescale subject - where subject is what you want to find. This way you can find pretty good matches.

This could be smartly supplemented with an AI program that would tag the posts to help with searching - like when a poster types, for example "Iwata" the post gets tagged #airbrush.

Awright - thanks for reading and have a nice day


All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!

It's a good idea,we have previously asked for different sections,but I think it's a money matter as it costs to redesign the forum.Maybe they will do something,the mods will have to answer

Splitting the Techniques page...
Posted by Thuntboss on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 9:57 AM

After reading a thread about having a seperate page just for airbrushes/airbrushing, it seemed a good idea to carry that a bit further. Among techniques, there are several sub groups that typically cause a large amount of questions to be asked and it would be extremely helpful to have specific pages to ask questions concerning specific areas. An airbrush/airbrushing page, a photoetch page, a glue/adhesive page, etc. I would limit it to specific techniques and building processes OTHER than basic building.   Food for thought at any rate, yes ?
