    Default Forum @ Railsim?

    Why was the forum at Railsimulator website closed down? Was it because they did not want have to answer any awkward questions about RW? Quite often threads were locked and posts deleted anyway, so maybe it was becoming somewhat pointless IMWO!

    They have already advised there will be no forums for RW, all will be answered in the Wiki.

    As I never could understand their forums, I doubt I will do any better with the Wiki.

    They certainly do not have the touch it takes for community relationships. Maybe they should just hire a community manager...

    There is an Obama guy that has Community Organizer experience. Perhaps he might consult.

    Really a messy forum. Never understood how posts got mixed that way, i'm certainly not missing their forum. On the other hand their presence here is equal to zero, having seen some recent posts by Rsderek in UKTS.
    Sorry if i misspell. English is not my native language.

    Just my speculation, not constrained by facts, but that the forums were taking up too much of the very small staff's time. If you want to develope new addons and enhancements for the product with five to seven people on board (I don't know this is all they have, just going on what I have heard elsewhere??), then they will have to spend more time in designing and building those products, and less in monitoring and replying to forums, particularly stuff like "I have a 80486 computer with a built in video card, RW won't run, what should I do?".

    Obama would just blame all this on Bush and apologize, for "all" Americans, for having different types of railroads that those in Europe. It is our fault after all.
