Yet again, this is a rather different listing for the past year compared to the previous years at first sight, but one which still features some of the people who have significantly helped Maine On2 modellers in recent years;-
Bill Kerr was the editor, publisher and chief compiler of the original web page version of these FAQ’s, as well as an outstanding scenery modeller, and sometime Moderator of the Yahoo! Maine On2 and Maine Two Footer groups. The scenery extra posting allowed us to show more of his scenery and the scenery techniques used by his close friends.
Trevor Marshall did a lot to publicize Maine On2 modelling during his active On2 modelling phase, was a Moderator of the Yahoo! Maine On2 group, and helped Bill Kerr with the content of the original web page version of these FAQ’s and the Fotopic site. Trevor was one of the friends that Bill Kerr nominated to ensure the continuing availability of the original FAQ content to modellers, and he was responsible for setting up this blog site.
Terry Smith was working on an update to the Tin roofs posting for the original web page version of the FAQ’s when that site went belly up, and it has taken him until half way through this year to catch up with the subject!. Terry has also served as a Moderator of the Yahoo! Maine On2 group, and also helped Bill Kerr with the content of the original web page version of these FAQ’s and the Fotopic site. Terry was another of the friends that Bill Kerr nominated to ensure the continuing availability of the original FAQ contents, and he has been responsible for re-publishing the original contents on this blog site, as well as writing up new topics.
Comparing visitor and viewing numbers for 2015 with 2014 then we have had a slight decrease in both.
The nationality of viewers is pretty stable, with some 70% of the viewings being made from the USA, with the United Kingdom in second place with some 7% and Canada in a very close third with 6%. In total, the blog has recorded viewers from 53 different countries around the globe this year.
We hope that our viewers have found the site of interest over the last year. We have more topics and content in-process, so keep coming back in the coming year.
….. enjoy your trains and browsing in 2016.
