'artnoon Martin.

Sorry mate, I've been on Kens' new thread since this morning.

Not strictly COIN, but designed to be used in a battlefield area.

Project only.

Oh well, back to work now, so OH please if correct

Edit:

Many thanks as usual to Mel for all your hard work

Demise of Heikki's Silhouette Challenge?

Sorry mate, I've been on Kens' new thread since this morning.
It would seem that everyone is now playing on the Google Group "Aircraft Silhouette Challenge" does that mean this thread will close and the list does not need to be updated?

As most will know I have been an active player on SC for some years. During the last few months the level of activity has declined greatly, with several stalled challenges, and on 3 occassions now I withdrew challenges simply becaiuse there was no active interest.

A forum such as this depends entirely on those competing to make it work. The number of regulars has slowly reduced and I can think of only 1 active joiner of the group in the last year. Meanwhile others have left. That probably says it all.

Those who know me will understand why I took the decision to set up a Google Group competition based on the SC format but without the constraints. Suffice to say there were personal reasons why I did this as well - it was just not the decline of SC itself.

I certainly have no desire or wish to see SC fail....but ultimately it has relied on the actions of 3, maybe 4, regulars. Take 3 of those away and it does not work - which demonstrates it does not have the players to support it.

Mel, as for your question, I am not able to comment as I have effectively left SC and will soon no longer be a PP member. My personal view is that you should leave it - I for one have very much appreciated all your efforts to keep us in control, but my advice would be to see if it gets going again prior to doing any updates.

Rosevidney1, its nice to see that you have an interest but it would have been better to have seen you join in.

I have enjoyed my time on this forum, and I really hope that it can continue, perhaps with some of the existing, and some new players who can make a difference.

Best wishes to all
Ken

Thank you for that Ken. I personally have not taken a very active part in this thread mainly because of the skill involved in producing the silhouette images. Perhaps we should revert to submitting challenges of aircraft identification from part photographs of aircraft in a similar manner to the old Avia Quiz as well as the odd silhouette.

Good morning all.

I echo everything Ken has said.

I too have enjoyed my time here, and would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to you Mel for your stalwart efforts in keeping the lists up to date.

Silhouetting is not difficult and requires no particular expertise, so if I can be of any help Mel, then please e-mail me, Ken, or Graeme and I'll do what I can.

You might recall that I taught Heikki how to do it and in short order he was producing some great stuff.

Thank you David, but to be honest I just find it too much of a hassle to go to all that trouble then post it and find it is solved in minutes.
It is a shame that you all find it necessary to move across to Google as this thread was renamed "Heikkis' Silhouette Challenge" in memory of Heikki who was a keen follower of the thread.
From what I have seen of the Google Group there are only 5 contenders playing and 4 of those were SC followers. However it is early days and I hope it picks up, myself I will stay with PPRuNe.
Mel
