With the “old forum” resurrected and the “new Invasion” forum abandoned, you may consider doing a few things before everybody forgets what happened.
1. Structure of the new forum was better than what we have here. “Colors, schemes and research” shouldn’t be within “Modeling Soviet Warplanes” category – it’s about the real planes colours.
2. We need “Sources” category in this old forum too. A place for links, books, magazine articles etc.
3. You may also transfer the most interesting treads from new forum to this “old” one. A-20 build for example.
4. Check who are the members of the new forum. There could be some of those who couldn’t sign-in to this forum. Sign them into this old forum.
Hope this will help.
