Musky - is your 'yes' vote for a separate RGS board? Or is it for a dedicated thread in which to consolidate an RGS build standard?

I voted 'no' because the poll asks specifically whether we need a separate RGS board.

If the poll asked 'do we need a thread that is a one stop shop for RGS technical/build data?' I would vote 'yes'.

There may be some confusion over the poll result.

dear me I'm really on another planet these days
I've read and remarked a couple times on this and now just noticed the voting options.
Having now thought a bit more about it I'm wondering what advantage/disadvantage there is (administratively ) either way, Moderators please comment, I'll hold my tick for a while (that was TICK btw)

The poll is about a specific new board (category), like previously done for "A7 46-50 Long Stroke Engine".

As for a topic about RGS (models, details, special parts etc), can be started anytime in for example 'Service Literature, Scans, Links, Documents'

RGS is out of my league anyway, and I can't speak for Musky, but it sounds to me like a bit of both (Sticky Board plus topic?) and I'd go with something like that *dunno*

Nothing to do with any elite. It's about a model variation, and about how to best serve info on the forum.

Was an easy evaluation when adding "A7 46-50 Long Stroke Engine", not so clear for any other model.

Agree. Starting a new board about what in essence is a "sub"model ain't logic. It would seem more logical to start a board on A65/A50's. Then there would be a board for the predecessor longstroke model, and a board for the descendent A65/A50 *dunno*
