Great to see this group is still attracting new members and new builds. Who knew it would be so popular!!
However, this popularity may have led to a few builders joining thinking its a cool place to be (and they'd be right ; ) ) but not thinking their builds through fully.
As a result we have a few vehicles that have been enthusiastically 'claimed' and then we've not heard from the builder since. Now we're not the sort of group to demand 'activity', however a 'claimed' status against a vehicle does stop someone else joining the group and building that vehicle.
So the time has come for some spring cleaning:
Team Owners and Admins: if you have a 'claimed' vehicle in your team, or see one and know the claimant isn't around anymore, please feel free to put a notice either here, or in the relevant team thread, alerting the position will be returned to 'Open' status unless the claimant says otherwise. If they're still active they can confirm they still intend to complete their vehicle, and if not their position can be updated.
Does this sound ok to everyone to keep the group tidy?
Hi Ape. Sounds good to me. I am also guilty of claiming a vehicle but have not had time/pieces to build it. I have claimed a vehicle in Nick’s Ecurie Ecosse team. Nick – Are you happy to wait a little longer or would like someone else to have a go? Permalink

I'm happy to wait and see what you come up with. Permalink
FYI all: This is more concerning people who joined, claimed a vehicle, and haven't built anything at all (or been present here), rather than those who have built a vehicle already and have then claimed another one. Permalink
If as result of our tidy up you require updates to your team you can either;
Do these yourself, by removing/replacing the inactive member/s and turning the claimed car/s to 'Open (and green), and the overall team status if required.
NOTE: If you do this please save a copy of all of the html into Word or something before you make any changes, in case of errors.
Request the changes via the 'HTML request II' thread and someone can complete them on your behalf.
