I have not started yet but that is my own fault. Because I have just joined the fray, I will remain neutral.

Hi, I think we do not need a vote. To me.it looks pretty like most are supportive.
I would like to see as many planes finished as possible. So my vote is "yes"

I too think we need to give as many as we can, the opportunity to produce a finished plane.
I am supportive of an extension.
A realistic timeframe needs to be set, maybe all entrants need to be contacted by PM by the judges to see how much extra time is required .
There has to be a line drawn somewhere .Brad.

Some very good points coming in,
It does seem quite a few are in favour of a Time extension,
If my maths is close, from today till the end of June is a 137 days.
Brads point is correct too, we need a line draw somewhere.

There will be no Vote,
After discussions with Bob, and Ian W,
We have come to an conclusion, that most were in favour of a time extension none appear dead set against the idea.
The due date for your plane to be finished is now
30 JUNE 2021
So get a move on people(This one including)

I just went to look at the final entries in the "Plane complete, ready for judging" thread and was shocked to see only a couple of entries had made it by closing time. The first post in the thread still says "just remember to post by the due date, which is 26.3.21.". Then I had a look around and found the date was extended. It might be an idea to update the thread with the new date.
I also notice that 1 other entry is in its own "Plane complete" thread rather than the official sticky one. Can this be incorporated into the sticky thread? It's a fine looking entry and it would be a shame if it slides off the page due to other posts.
I know I'm not an entrant but I think it would be good to remove the comment posts from the "Plane complete" thread to keep it simple for reviewing. I'm hoping there will be a people's choice (or popcorn prize as someone called it) poll and I think keeping the thread for entries only would make it easier for everyone including the official judges. I know this would mean extra work for someone so understand if its left as is.Cheers, Bob the labrat
Measure once and.... the phone rings!

Thanks for the heads-up Bob, I have had my eye off the ball a lot these last few weeks thanks to lots of family business - nothing serious, just all the drama & rigmarole of getting a (very) elderly parent settled into new digs - it's quite the process!
I have asked admin to move bellbodyboards' post lock stock & barrel into the designated spot. I could move it using 'edit' but then it would show under my name which could be a bit confusing.
Yairs, some of the entrants are very chattery alright, and have added a bit of chaff to the wheat, but we'll winnow it out at the end. One thing I do wish is that the blokes would go easy on the "reply with quote" button. It's often done just to comment on or reply to one line or phrase in a long post full of pics. I guess it's harder for those who use their phones, to edit the quote down to the sentence or phrase they want to comment on (& remove the pics that don't need duplicating unless you are calling attention to something in the pic itself), but it would sure clean things up a lot if you could do so....
