    I fear that I need to place a few guidelines for making a suggestion. Also to expressing an interest.
    Think about what it is that you wish to suggest. An idea plukked out of the air and sent in on the spur of the moment is going to get you more questions than anything else.


    I think it would be better with a concrete idea for a build than just a theme. We have had so many theme type GB's in the past and the active interest was all but zero. Plenty voted for them but no one entered anything come the time to build them.


    I am not saying do not suggest a theme; i am saying if you do, think it through and make a clear suggestion that all can understand. Also remember that it is your suggestion and not to let people sway your idea to fit their wants.


    If you would like to join the GB. Please make a clear statment along the lines of; I'm in. I want to do this, Add me to the list.
    Things like Oh that would be great, Good idea, I have one in the stash, are all a bit flimsy. The person that made the suggestion might not catch it and the quota may not be reached.


    I am not trying to be a grumpy old fart, I am hopefully trying to help.

    Good points Ian. That's why all my suggestions are simple and to the point. No room for questions or deviations, just wide open builds that everyone could join in on ( Irrespective of a favourite aspect of model making)......but within the context of the titles.
