Yorkshire is quite a well known place in England, its known as being hope to cheapskates, myself included.

Well, we've also now apparently started to fake our McDonalds stickers to get free coffees!

Some of you may be aware of Geoff Marshall, a somewhat well known YouTuber focusing on train videos, often around London. A while back I could been seen milling about on one of his videos, where I was one of a number of around 200 volunteer helping to make a map of the underground in the middle of a field in the summer.
In a video he uploaded today, I noticed another old time forum user. see if you can spot him. It's around halfway through the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9wGl43OX1E

Goodbye, EU. :( Hopefully I’ll be a citizen again one day, whether as a British or Scottish citizen remains to be seen though.

That “few years” will be 12 years ago this year! :shock:

You were indeed missing, Owen, but even without you as our legal guardian (and SROTU) we managed to enjoy ourselves! :mrgreen:

Now this is neat:

https://deepai.org/machine-learning-model/colorizer

It can colour in your black and white photos!

For example, here's a photo of a part of Stockholm back in 1898:

And here's the source of the above photo. Very not-coloured: Of course, it struggles with photos where the grayish and blackish areas are too large and under-detailed, nothing to use as a reference for the AI I suppose. Still, photos like the above come out real nice!

So like, how much does a person have to post the same spam in order to get a hit?

I check my email and I have notifications for the Loco section but all that was posted were 2 threads both titled "BUY COUNTERFEIT MONEY ONLINE."

Who really falls for that?

It's rare to be so honest when trying to sell something, so i'll give them credit for that.

I work in food service and if one of our dishes is trash, I won't sell it. Or if it's marked up to $30 for the 1oz of lobster.

I was just thinking that. In fact, the other day I considered making a thread to see if everyone agrees.

OTTD section seems populated, but Locomotion is just me and spambots.

The forums indeed have been rather quiet for a while now, but we're still generating a lot of traffic (and indeed spam :mrgreen: )

This forum still serves a very useful purpose in hosting OTTD development which is still active indeed, and also helping people with questions. The Off-Topic and general discussion outside of the games has indeed died down a fair bit. I don't know if there's a way to find statistics.

Still, we can all help by visiting more frequently and engaging in exciting discussions. Create new topics, discuss new issues, or just spam topics like your most recent listened to music!

Or this one, I suppose. I used to be proud of myself for being the most recent poster on several subforums (when I was being helpful) but now it's just sad, as if I'm talking to myself.
