We welcome new members irrespective of experience. You can learn, relax and enjoy the hobby here...
We encourage discussion and we do expect the odd robust exchange between serious modellers, because hobbies generate enthusiasm… but we are committed to remaining a positive place for you to visit, so expect “good housekeeping” by our moderation team, keeping this a pleasant place to be.
A model railway related forum has to be a place to enjoy... so:
While DCCconcepts sponsor the forum and will offer customer service advice in a separate area, we DO understand that intrusion is annoying, so FOCUS moderators will move any branded threads to an appropriate area and keep the forum areas as non-partisan space as much as possible.
The FOCUS FORUM as a whole is guaranteed to remain totally AD FREE…
Images are easy: It can be frustrating when it is hard to post images or links, so we let you do this easily by placing them directly into your posts.
We also want you to share images of your modelling without complication or restriction - so we are pleased to offer you unlimited space for your model railway and thread-related images.
Additionally, we want to encourage the sharing of skills and techniques, but we also recognise the need for those who share things of value to be able to manage how it happens... so SELF Moderation is available - ie: more experienced members or those who create projects and layouts selected to be part of our “Inspirational layouts” or projects” areas will also be invited to moderate their own threads.
