Post wise, I feel this forum should be a little higher on the list, we do see a fair amount of traffic here.

Really I am not joking. Its sad it got moved to the bottom. Just another reason to leave. Sad you demote the forum that badly.

We're in the process of making some other changes, and we'll explain when we're done, but the short story is, we're reorganizing some things to make it easier to find things and get around. The order of forums on the main page is about logical structure, not necessarily importance and/or traffic.

Then it would only be right to reserve judgment until then.

CIOR, I think you're being a little extreme. Traffic has nothing to do with it. Besides, this forum is in the Top Ten on the home page... doesn't get much higher than that!

Besides... you ain't seen nothing yet.

Did Mike mention that position on the forum was never related to popularity or what the owners thought of the forum.

If you cannot make it down to the MR forum go to the homepage and click the link for model rr on the lower left if you cannot make it down to the bottom.

Don't worry COIR I believe in you, just do some quick finger cals before you visit rr.net.

Being a casual browser here, I was a tad confused scrolling to the usual spot to see the Model Railroading forum... 'gone' :-)

After a slight panic, revealed it being moved to it's new location.


Ahhh forget it...... I just bookmark the forum page, as it tends to be the first and only thing I visit on railroad.net :P

You see, now this kind of crazy talk gets me worried...
Besides kvetching that there are too many of them, has anyone been complaining about the order/organziation of the forums?
No, of course not - mostly we complain about Otto locking threads :P
