"genuine E3D V6, has never failed me".
 and it never will I suspect... In the world of clones the .4 nozzle given me a smoother cleaner finish with top surface  " think in part because of the more flat on the nozzle than a v6.
    you mention jams!!! in the heatbreak  >:D with the volcano it come with those dreaded all metal heatbreak  apart from the end into the heater block there a small piece of teflon, but these heatbreaks jam all time unless you  do a DIY polish job thou with the volcano just aint a problem unlike with the v6 counterpart block. " they worked fine on both I have. "now with a range of nozzles from .25 to 1.2 a bonus in the clone world.

  "But you know bajdi we shouldn't go comparing clones to genuine only upset some folks!  "quality control doesn't exist either you could make up a nice looking hotend by chance, thou even the ugly fkers still work.. nice hotend linked above am in the process of taming, but am diverted  by  print surface... now cave overhaul in progress so sry  for delay in reply bud.

Glad to see a new source where I can get parts from. Now I'm looking at their electric motor range: Right Electric Motor.
If I ever came across a new one soon, I'll post that right away here. How about you? What is your newfound source for great deals and selections?

Hmm the volcano prints better then the V6? Care to elaborate?
You know I'm very happy with my genuine E3D V6, has never failed me. Never had a blocked heatbreak or nozzle.

I agree with pretty much everything you said the question is how to develop a larger core community, I think we can move forward torwards a site that has the best of CKR and RR, part of the point of this for me is how we get there.

Although I should add, I totally understand the sheer difficulty of achieving that. You basically need to be a website designer with a lot of free time to pull that off. If I had any of the skills and time needed I would offer up.

This site is mainly about the people, for me. People who are passionate about building robots and have advice and skills in that area.
     It is however still a php forum and this means it is always going to be about the people and the subject matters discussed, rather than the projects. I think there is a limit to what you can do with a php forum, which is always going to limit growth.
    I stumbled upon a website recently ( society of robots) which seems to have some of the ingredients that would make a really good hobby robotics site, except user led projects on the homepage. It has news articles, industry sponsored adverts, beginner robot projects and a forum. Much like the lmr of old, but not much in the way of visual stimulation or user interaction that I can see.
   CKR is extremely visually pleasing. It has the user led projects on the home page. Systems for 'collecting' projects and following users. Interesting design motifs. But lacks the user interaction, shoutbox, active forum, etc. I really like the concept of it being 100% family friendly but I think that is also it's limiting factor. I don't really think kids are so fragile to necessitate the need to censor bad words etc. I think it is just part of taking part in the internet.
  RR has a great user interaction, great forum, great people, freedom of opinion, irreverent humour, with helpful people and passionate robotics enthusiasts.

I won't mention the original site, other than to say it had all of the above but with key addition of a core of 'community' contributors who did things like modding and adding content and crucially some interaction with professional roboticists and industry figures. If there was a model or formula to making a hobby robotics site super popular and fun it would a combination of all of the above. The closest thing i can find is HAD. The lure of having your projects seen, rated, followed etc is really the fundamental drawer for makers. The drawer for those wanting to get into making is looking at these projects and trying to emulate them, being able to message those makers and get advice, finding the products necessary all in one place etc.  These all seem to be the necessary traits of a really successful and fun robotics website.

"Firstly I want to apologise as I seemed to have hijacked your AGM post. That was not my intent."
 no apology needed you raising some good points.

"Almost as though we’ve started discussion on one of the AGM topics before agreeing on an an AGM or an agenda."
       lol thought that myself but its the normal for us, as we flow with things, we'll have our AGM without knowing we had it :P

 with Oss 
"Let's talk about all of it, I think it would be best if all ideas were out there for discussion, any suggestions should be considered and discussed I'm wide open".
