1) A "read posts since last visit" link would be nice.

2) A sailplanes only section in for sale section would be helpful.

3) How about a scale sailplanes forum?

4) The size limit on avatars is pretty low. Mine is only 14.5k but doesn't fit as the current limit is 9.5k.

Thanks!

There is read posts since last visit. top of page click "New posts" in main nav to show new posts since last visit. you can also view posts in last 24 ours which is on the quick links drow down menu in the main nav.

Once the sale section gets very busy we will break out the categories and make them a little more granular. With new forums it is best to wait until a forum starts getting volume so that will come including a sailplane breakout.

With scale sailplanes we are only doing epowered sailplanes. with that in mind would scale apply?

Avatars are small because they can really add up. Most images can come in under 10k easily. On rcu we did 7.5k even. You might try shrinking pixel dimensions just a bit. If we go beyond 10k dial up users can have a hard time. Imagine 30 posts on a page with 10k avatars, This is 300k in images which can take 10 or 20 seconds on dial up! Ouch!
