Possibility of site name change - What do you think - POLL
« on: December 15, 2007, 16:17:53 »
The website has been running for less that a week and it has been really interesting to see how the site has developed, with out you, the members the site would be nothing and for that I for one would like to say Thank You.

What has stood out is that most people that are interested in model Tugs are generally interested in any type of Tugs, real or model and for these reasons we thought we would put it to the members that did they think a website name rethink was needed ?

We have been offered a chance to have some cool merchandise made and we thought we had better confirm once and for all what we will call ourselves.

Other names the site could be called is .....

TugBoatForum.com (perhaps opens it up to ALL Tug enthusiasts, not just model)

or

TugForum.com (shorter)

both names are in our ownership anyway and always will be and all names will always point to the same site ...but which do you, the members prefer ...hence the poll !

Thanks for all your continued support and contributions and together lets make this the Number 1 Tug Source on the net.

Cheers

Tugmaster

Zdenek,

Yes that seems to be the overall feeling.

We originally registered 3 domain names for the forum there being:-

ModelTugForum.com
TugBoatForum.com
TugForum.com

All three of these arrive at the same site but ModelTugForum.com works well but I think we will keep the other 2 as links and searches to the site, I think thats how things will now be left.

I think people can see we are open to ALL tug enthusiasts model and full size.

Thanks for you contribution and look forward to many more !!

Welcome Aboard !!

Cheers

How many of us built model tugs or watched them when we were kids?
Why did I join the Club? Not Because I have or intend to build a model tug, I built the Dutch tug Zwart Zee that many years ago I can not remember when.

No I joined to see some of the superb tug models some of other member have built or are building and at the same time enjoy looking at other real time tug pictures and possibly being of help to others tracing some Tyne or Blyth tug history.
At the end of the day we are all just mad about tugs.!

No the existing name is fine by me!
My Father,Grandfather, great Grandfather all worked on Tyne tugs.

Hi Tugmaster and all other tuggies,
Why change the name? This site is superb with many good members who enjoy either giving advice or showing us lesser mortals their undoubted building skills. I found this site by accident but have since visited on a daily basis.

I am one of the lucky ones who has been fortunate enough to have worked on tugs and my love for them remains as strong as when I went afloat at the tender age of 15 as cook aboard the SUN X1.

I have made some very good freinds via my interest in tug models and the real things and am the proud owner of three built by "model tugman" the VANQUSHER being the most recent. ;)

This site gives me emense pleasure as I am sure it does others please don't change the name!!

Yours with the greatest respect. :)

Ray
