Re: Challenge 2015

We will, but start date and theme are yet to be determined.
It needs a bit more publicity in advance to make sure more people participate, which seems where the last one fell over, sadly.

Re: BUILD A STRUCTURE CHALLENGE WINTER 2015/2016 VOTE

I have contacted our president to see how we can increase participation. It appears that some were unaware that this was even going, so the first step for the next challenge is to make sure it is promoted/advertised better.

Re: PanPastel

yes, have used them, followed the same series, I'm really impressed by the ease of working with them , highly recommend it. They may appear expensive but they'll last a long time.

Re: Posting Failure

Hi Deano, that's odd indeed, I'll have to look into that... I must admit I haven't used the 'preview' button myself recently, but I'll give it a try by posting this message...... ......And that seems to be working OK. How are you adding the pictures? Are you trying to post them directly to the forum...
