        In that case, I reckon I can sign up to it if no better candidate shows up

          Hey guys, just logged in for the first time in many months and saw this thread.

          I agree with pretty much everything you've said, with the decline of the forums I pretty much don't interact with the online painting community at all anymore. Which is a shame as I paint much less as a result.

          Like many of you I'd like to see the forums make a come back but don't know how. Would it be possible to setup threads so that new posts also generated a post in a Facebook group? Might help a bit..

          I originally joined Wamp because of the competitions and though I haven't participated for many years I see them as great motivation/source of traffic.

          Many people have said some of the bad things about social media, I think what people like is the instant gratification/comments, hence maybe if we could get WAMP forum posts to generate facebook posts which could be 'liked' etc then maybe it gets some of that back?

            Heyy! haven't been around here for a while, just so much other stuff going on and mini painting has taken a back seat along with a lot of forum visits. Find I do a lot less painting now as I struggle with eyesight and my old hands aren't as steady as they used to be. How to revitalise I don't know, probably streamline stuff - when I was a regular visitor there was always so much stuff it took ages to get through it even when visiting every day.
            "I lOVE your attitude Wag - painting for the hell of it, because you want to - one of the best things I did was invite you over here as to me you invoke the wamp spirit perfectly." - thankyou DL !

              OK my pennies worth
              Streamline the **** out of the forum, ask what we want and fit the forum around that. We are a painter forum so would suggest WIP/ finished feedback/ hints and tips/ events meet-ups/ some where to moan about figures/ some where to moan about life.
              have a monthly paint.
              But I think you/we definitely have to many loose threads
              What made this forum big was we offered a saef place for new and established painter to meet and share the joy of painting.
              AS for Mod as I stated earlier I will be by my PC 24/7 so am happy to help
              Can I suggest we put up a thread asking what brings members in a what they want
              For example
              I will be looking for somewhere to vent on the poor cast's I have to paint :). I will need help with colour schemes and general banter about how poor England Rugby are or how great all my sport teams are. I will maybe post some WIp and finished commissions but generally will be looking to offer advice and tips to the new and army level painter (will leave display painting to the experts)
