    Keep a look out for Richard Horne's updates on G+, as he has had a "Eureka" moment and is hoping to have a solution to the bed glass chipping saga. He will post final results after further research with more filament.

    yeah no kidding! This is really annoying to have two communities, having a weird hybrid conversation spanning two sites in some strange mixed threaded conversation

    The advantage with G+ is that it gives you a live feed that is easy to check and see the new updates without walking through the threads.

    Hi Henry, Richard has been around on G+ for a long time and hosts his own site for 3D printing being a RepRap aficionado from the start and this is an issue for the wider community. I am sure, if requested, he would post here too.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    If it were only these two - but then there are still updates on the KS page, including comments, and a wild zoo of hangouts, drop-ins and -outs, videos, and probably some more. Just surprising there is no facebook, twitter and yahoo base (yet).
    I would appreciate a single usenet-newsgroup. But I would never dare to say so... ;)

    I tried to ask him before to join this community. He ignored that

    My guess: this is a corporate site and so off-limits to a committed open-sourcer.

    It is great for people are are actively checking the site every few minutes and having current conversations. But horrible for those who are unable to. You're forced to read through everything (even if its something you have little interest about). On this forum you can quickly see each topic thread and has better search.

    I think hes invested into the G+ platform for so long its hard to change. Someone should script together a RichRapRobot that just copy paste his G+ messages over here everytime he posts. :) There has been quite a bit of good tips and fixes that deserve to be on here for all to see.

    Ordered a couple. Worth a punt for £6 especially as I plan to use plain picture frame glass beds.
