I can think of two people who have agreed with me. Not sure to what extent but they have agreed with certain things I've said about this in the past.TommyBNSF wrote:Who said we're expecting a different result?

I'm not sure if you're not reading what I typed or what. Yes older crossings are less common than they were back then which is why I also think we shouldn't be as selective like it was. But being less selective isn't the same as just flat out documenting every crossing that we can find. And who said a crossing is unique just based on it's equipment? I think we need to make this site quality over quantity again. A definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.
This shouldn't be about hard work. I personally think you should transfer pages to a new site associated with Mike's Railroad Crossing forum but that's just my idea. And if you didn't document every crossing just because it's a crossing that you can physically document, you wouldn't have to put such hard work into the site. And you can maybe spend more time making sure there aren't any issues/errors with any of the pages before they go live. And you could also maybe spend more time and effort into adding a little more character into each page, I understand that (about character) might come across as too vague or broad. Kinda self explanatory I guess.TommyBNSF wrote: Do you really want David and I to remove our years of hard work to this site just because you don't like standard crossings? That's an insult to what we've done over the years, especially since unlike Mike, we both have jobs that preoccupy much of our time, so the time we spend documenting crossings and finding all relevant information about it is more valuable.
Both of your channels are pretty popular, I think the growth in the community because of you and David is from your Youtube channels, not the site.TommyBNSF wrote: As far as I see it, the crossing community has gotten much bigger we started our involvement with the site. Maybe not directly with the site, but especially on Youtube, the community has grown much larger, and much of those people have discovered this site and have appreciated what we have done.
I don't see why it should be taken as an insult... I don't expect either one of you to just blindly make the changes that I'd like to see done to the site.TommyBNSF wrote: That's an insult to what we've done over the years,
