  1. I've split the topic.. the Judging posts are here >> https://forum.ipmsusa3.org/topic/20447-re-judging-was-haters-group/
  2. This type of attitude is pretty common... it runs along the lines of "To justify what I like, I have to hate/insult/denigrate what you like." As an example, "I like Star Wars, but Star Trek sucks." and by implication, so do you. This is pretty difficult to counteract as trying to address it head on only solidifies their opinions. The thing to do (and I may not get this quite right) is to find out the what, where, why and how the other person likes Star Wars, without getting sidetracked into anything involving Star Trek. If they try to go negative, steer it back towards their positive feelings/thoughts about Star Wars. Do not at anytime talk about your opinions of either Star Trek or Star Wars. Only focus on them and their thoughts and feelings. If they persist in going negative, you'll probably get no where and will need to move on. But if you can get them to open up and get some actual, positive reasons for liking Star Wars, at some point you may be able to say, "Oh I see why you like it. Those are many of the very same reasons I like Star Trek, but I can appreciate that Star Wars is something you really seem to enjoy." Let them be happy about enjoying Star Wars on its own and realize that fact. Perhaps then they'd understand your appreciation of Star Trek. Now this is not an easy thing to do - and the fact that I even wrote this out would confuse the heck out of some of my friends, but so be it... Anyway.... I may add on to this later, but I need some sleep. Eric
  3. Interesting video.. http://www.scalemodelnews.com/2018/11/secrets-of-new-124-scale-airfix-f6f-5.html
  4. Its a shame that the Chapter in Tupelo closed down a number of years ago... E
  5. Don't bet on it. Online advertising does not bring in a lot of revenue. E
  6. Links restored. There was an issue on their web server. Eric
  7. Probably not... it might be a bit mean to make many copies of something just to avoid having to buy it.. Not really sure... Eric
  8. He has posted another video on scale figures - it includes a portion about pirate recasts of garage kits...
  9. A new Article at: http://www.scalemodelnews.com/2018/10/a-war-in-miniature-amazing-model.html Eric
  10. Here is another video... https://www.tested.com/art/makers/845811-adam-savages-one-day-builds-kit-bashing-and-scratch-building/
  11. I wonder if we could send Adam Savage an IPMS membership?.... hehe... E

  13. I think this might be the Nats issue... which takes a little longer to assemble... E
  14. The only online signup was for the Grex seminar... and that one is closed.
  15. After checking with Phoenix, you can now register for the Tour, but online registration for the Nationals will not be re-opened. You will either have had to register online previously or do so at the door in Phoenix. http://www.shopipmsusa.org/product-p/natsreg-18-tour-pima.htm Eric
  16. They work for me but the Tour Coord email is tours@ipmsusanationals2018.org Eric
  17. Hi, I am testing the ability to sign in using your Facebook account. If you already have an account on the Forums, you can setup Facebook logins via the 'Accounts Setting' menu. See the image attached... Eric
  18. Yeah, I might have duplicated topics... been one of those weeks... Email both of us, just in case... I don't think I've ever seen a Fact Sheet, so I don't know what info is on it. I've added more info to the Chapter web pages over the years and I doubt its on the sheet. I have thought about providing access to the CC's to their Club pages... at the moment, I have a function that emails all the CC's to get them to update the page info. It's reasonably successful but I don't get replies from everyone. My concern is that instead of the DLC and I having to manage the pages, we'll end up managing the CC accounts and any Club pages where the CC does not want to do so.. It is doable but it's not something I'm going to tackle without significant fraction of the parties involved on board... Eric
  19. The DLC can update the Chapter info which is what feeds the calendar... Eric
  20. The one thing I probably cannot do is dealing with Chapters who have two different meeting times during a month, i.e. the second Tuesday at 7PM and the fourth Sunday at 2PM. I can list those on the Chapter page, but not within the Meeting Calendar view.... Eric
  21. Would anyone find this useful? https://calendar.ipmsusa3.org/chapter-meetings Eric
