      Hi, I'm happy about the database and to have my collection safe on the site.
      Is it me or the system is a little bit low every time a page is reloaded?
      A suggestion could be to have the possibility to add a picture on the custom models section.
      Another one could be to have the possibility to add a new model when it is not in the database.
      Thank you for your daily work and I'm sure the site will become better and better in the future: keep up the good work!

        What pages are slow? If your collection is slow, go into preferences and turn off model ratings.

        Suggestion noted for the custom models.

        You can add a new model to the db here: http://www.diecastmodelaircraft.com/db/submit

        Glad you are happy with what you see!

          it occurred to me when i was looking up planes about the Colors used for
          have it
          want it
          trade it

          the blue color for "have it" seems subdued; pic


          maybe change it to green e.g. the green, red, of traffic lights in the US? the trade it already has a yellow/purple

            Agreed, changed it to a green, should be a bit easier to see now?

              Any way we can add like a little voting area? Pictures of collections are uploaded lets say on a sunday, we vote for a week, and on saturday when all the results are in the picture voted best will be featured on the site for a week till we vote on a new featured collection? Just a suggestion!

                Voting is already enabled, you can add a vote to any thread. Feel free to use that and start a weekly vote on different topics. Email us when the first is done so we can feature a photo.

                  way better This color scheme also if validated by health of a character presented in video games; green health bar = good, red = bad.
                  Don't forget to add a bullet for the next release of improvements.

                  pic shows all the categories selected.

                    LOL... we weren't going for that, but whatever makes your boat float! I was thinking of adjusting the trade colors to something else. Orange & Blue perhaps?

                      I mention the video game health bar because it's affected a larger percentage of the population in the last decade or so; even grandma knows about the health bar thx to casual gaming.


                      have you looked at the color on a pic to see how it looks;
                      you can always make a poll or included in a list of other additional appearance changes, then include on your next newsletter. This is also another opportunity for people to come here & start noticing all the AWESOME stuff that has happened in the last few months.




                      The green plane icons look good to me e.g. they stand out, unless you want to go overboard & have different colors for the number of plane icons to reflect how badly someone wants a model & make it more noticeable. I.E. (below) of course you can tweak the colors as these are just suggestions
                      • 1 plane = blue
                      • 2 plane = green?
                      • 3 plane = yellow
                      • 4 plane =orange
                      • 5 plane = red

                      I also like how the eBay logo is not faded when the model might be available on eBay

                        Great idea fleet.. we coded all that this AM!

                        You should now see color codes in your want list, as well as in want list for others!

                        We toned down the green, it was a tad too bright.

                          np, i wasn't emotionally invested in the colors


                          I do have a request, inquiry? I opened a poll to vote on total 1/200 planes & remember at the time there was problem w/ selecting a date. i believe it kept putting a wrong date where i didn't want any date to end the poll if possible. Can someone "unlock" the poll so people can vote on it forever or do i have to create a new thread??

                            poll is unlocked..
                            the colors were a good idea and literally about 10 minutes to create/code.. so it was easy.. thanks!

                              np, glad i could help . thanks for correcting the poll

                              I'm glad 10 minutes of programing is considered easy for those who want to do it or like it. If i had to do it, i'd start spilling my guts on every secret i ever heard or thought i heard in my whole life!

                                This should give you an idea of how quickly things can be completed. Other forums can't even fix basic issues, let alone anything mildly complicated. Yet they claim to be professionals - hiding any truth behind smoke and mirrors, and broken promises of a brighter tomorrow.
