    I hope this is not the end for Ftrucks,
    with AC and the full release of GSC allot of our clubs are suffering at the moment.
    I have tried to support this sim now for a number of weeks. always being here on a Friday night to race, but after last week i was totally wasted from all the skinning, and with only me and kjell who signed up , i decided to have a rest.. i needed it :)..

    whilst i can appreciate its disappointing to wait all week to race and find nobody there to race with or just the 2 of us, its up the the RD community to sign up and add interest if they want a sim to succeed, We as staff can do our bit putting on the races every week but without guys singing up and going on the servers, it will fail :(
    This sim has so much potential and is real good fun..
  11. And a well deserved rest it was! :)

    But, personally I must admit that I think this sign up system with open signups for every day of the week is poor, I'd rather have set days of the week and try to work that into my scheduele, because like it is now I think a lot of people won't sign up, they wait to see what day others sign up on so they don't have to race a small grid, and due to this some people that would want to race don't because they never signed up.
    I might be wrong, but I'm guilty of thinking this way myself at times.
    So, instead of only complaining about the system being poor, I'll also add an idea on how to change it for the better (IMO ofc).
    Make a single post for the week, and add a poll, let people vote with multiple choices which days they wanna race on next week, close votes on monday and set up a race or two on the or those days with the most votes.
    Or, simply just go back to having set days for the races, either way is better than how it is now imo (a system which probably would work if it was a immensly popular sim, but let's face it, FTruck is a niche sim :p).

    Did ye, aye?

    It's a shame :( I was the same as you to begin with Rupe, being there every Friday and pestering people with tags to get racing but because I've not got as much time now I don't really bother with it anymore, it's still my favourite sim but it takes me a couple of hours to get up to speed for a race and that usually ends up being time wasted as no one else signs up or there are only 2-3 of us.
