Hey, all. Noted, and all I can say is that we do our very best to keep things on track given limited time to spend doing so. The Forum is obviously quite busy right now and we have a lot of new people, which is the norm after a Mars landing.

Frankly, we rely quite a bit on you old heads around here to help show the newbies the ropes via leadership by example, and that's really the most effective means. If we went really hardcore in terms of moderating we'd end up with hundreds of threads with just a few posts each. It's a balancing act, always. smile.gif

However...definitely agree that Phil's map thread has become a bit cluttered; that can be fixed.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Thanks for heads up on the traditional role of the map topic. It is probably not obvious to any new members which thread is most appropriate for a given post. The Mars cartography category is a much better fit for these kind of discussions (unfortunately, a distance measured on a map is not necessarily the same distance measured on the ground).

Yeah, our bad; they're listed in two places, this was one of them. Now fixed. Thanks! smile.gif
