Maybe someone could suggest an edit to that section of the wiki that indicates the existence of UFoZS?  "As of July 1st 2021 the forum has been deactivated, although a group of former administrators and moderators created a new forum with the same rules and ideological stance as the original."?  Sure it's self-serving for us, but it's relevant and factual and might help increase membership here.
I'm afraid that's not going to be possible.  The ZS BoD wanted it kept clear that we are not affiliated with them. Such a note would make it seem we are

Would starting our own Wikipedia entry be possible or do we have to wait until we're a significant enough place to be notable there ?

Too soon, IMHO.

Too soon, IMHO.

So we wait awhile and then make our own Wikipedia page ?

That sounds fair.

The odd part is that I'm an approved Wikipedia editor.

I've had the urge to sign up to edit Wikipedia pages, but part of me says "You've got too many accounts to places online already, doofus."

The other part is distracted by stuff on sale over on Midway USA. :smiley_crocodile:

Okay, so how did I miss the "More" button in the emoticons list until today?  I'd seen various emoticons which weren't in the standard list, but just thought that people had a trick to pull them in from somewhere else.  Yay!  :smiley_cheer:

Just so as not to drive you crazy, there are tricks to getting non-standard and "not open to the general public" ones.  There are several that are in the standard list but not displayed in it, you have to know the "code" to use them.  There are also ways of bringing in ones from elsewhere.

Do we want to do the UFoZS fleet numbers or wait and see what happens?

Give it another year.  I have a few things planned but I have to do a bit of prep work first.

Fleet numbers?  Are we getting those for our vehicles like they had on the old site?

It's in the works, but it may be a bit until we fully roll out the program.

Can we pre order/request numbers up front?

I'd ask NT2C about that. I really don't know enough about the program to give an answer on that.

Depends on who does the bookkeeping involved.  Some of us can be rather relaxed in our handling of things  :smiley_hippie: while others may be more strict  :smiley_talktothehand:

Book keeping?  I can make a simple Excel sheet for tracking who/numbers assigned etc.  Let me know how I can help or when we could discuss further... Once the dust settles and we get to that point anyway.
