Time to go.

I posted just one photograph of my platform lighting effort on a Facebook Group and in two days has had 60 Likes and 12 Comments, this thread and post with far more detail and description of things has had a mere couple of thanks and a couple of comments from the few that actually follow my progress.

Such a shame but seems a complete waste of time resizing pictures etc for such little response. It is not encouraging, so a big Thanks to everyone that took the time to read and help me this far.

Bye, regards, George

Good morning George, I really enjoy your updates. As has been remarked before, elsewhere on the NGF, far more people watch and read than post thank you's or responses. I do hope that you will continue to post.

Hi George  :sorrysign: I have to say I am very guilty of following posts and not actually commenting or giving thanks.  Whilst I'm on Facebook, I am not a big user of it.  That said I am a member of the NGF group on there.  I'll be sorry not to see any further developments on here, but if myself and others lurking in the background participated more...

 Thanks John.

If you or any others silent or otherwise want to watch developments then Geominster is the Facebook page, it is closed group so you will just need to request to be invited from that page.

I am already on the Facebook group so will give it a look the next time I go on there, it may actually get to go on Facebook a bit more often.

Sadly it has far more activity than Forums these days. Check it out.

George, agreed as above I do have a habit of sitting in the background and watching, shame there will be no more updates. As one of the minority that doesn't use Facebook I will be unable to keep up with you progress. :-(

As fate would have it, I was catching up on this thread yesterday on the train and went to the trouble of scrolling back up to the top of a post to add a thank you (definitely an argument for the button to be at the bottom of a post), but didn't get see this page. Oh well.

FWIW I post pictures of my layout here as it makes a good record of progress, it's a bonus if anyone else comments/thanks. If I want the instant gratification of likes etc. I go to Facebook.

Sorry, George, but your decision to only post progress on Facebook has lost you a keen follower as I'll never be found on Facebook.

Just had a nose at the FB group.  Personally I prefer the forum as you have a thread to follow for peoples projects & discussions.  Not being an avid FB user it appears to be just a bunch of random postings which makes it difficult to follow someones progress as all their post are not together.  Then there is the time factor; there just are not enough hours to browse in so many different locations.  Whilst I'm guilty of not participating enough on here, I do enjoy the postings that the dedicated members of this forum produce.  The fact that several contributors around the UK and the world can even "virtually" link their layouts makes for some very interesting reading and I really hope this continues!  Now I just need to get my act together and get something planned, the space has been identified I just need to find the time and get my brain in to gear.  Actually I think it may need a jump start before getting it in to gear...
Definitely disappointed that I won't be able to follow Georges progress on here any more.

I too read the majority of posts here but certainly am unable to reply to them all. I have a thread here that is read by several but only a few post. It does not concern me as those who want to post, will, and the posts I make hopefully help others. I find this a great community where answers can be found and questions put without fear of seeming stupid. I do not like nor use Facebook so I'm afraid I wont be able to follow your progress.
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Sorry Mick but it is a far more active community, my Facebook page is closed so only those that I know will ever see it, that way it is not open to some of the abuse Facebook is known for. This Forum unfortunately is read but not replied, I will miss you also and if you want to see Geominster on Facebook let me know and I will gladly grant access to you or anyoe else who wants to follow the progress. Chris from Prague is a regular there now, he said he ddnt do Facebook either. Times change you know.
