Please, please James, give a little more attention to your grammar and spelling in trying to persuade folk to patronise your magazine. It's not very encouraging to give the impression that its editor is so careless in his presentation and approach.

I'm sorry to be negative but if you want us to subscribe, then give us the impression that you're prepared to take a little more care!

Your heart is obviously in the right place but please think a little more before committing thoughts to paper, (posting) and check, check, check!

Like Terry, I don't want to be negative. I think it's cool that you're doing a magazine. I agree about the grammar, but I'm also not sure that this "world record" idea is such a great concept.

There's no way to know who actually holds these "records". I mean, if I said that I've run 20 trains at once, who's to say that is any kind of record? Even if no one else posts a higher number, it hardly makes my total the "world record". Declaring it as such kind of sounds immature and unprofessional.

Maybe if the subject was "personal records" instead?

Again, I'm not trying to be negative. Sometimes a little constructive criticism can make a product better...just ask Auran:)

Thank you for your helpful suggestions. Below is the front cover for the Trainz world records if I get enough records for it. I know there is no way to check if the records are accurate but it's just kind of fun to see what people are doing out there.

So, James, rather than even discussing remarks posted to help you, you plough ahead with large garish graphics, presumably meant to impress!

I'm sorry my friend but you don't seem to want to even consider well meant advice from folk who have, perhaps, the benefit of the experience of many years of life and wish to encourage such enterprises as yours.

Enough said; carry on and good luck to you!

James

For a site at which you can look to give some ideas as to what can be achieved may I suggest this one. (http://www.virtualrailroader.com/)

Whilst I'm not in any way suggesting that you can leap in and produce something similar, or that you should even try, it does give some framework ideas on which you might build.

All the best.

Terry
