    Hey Crew, it's been a while, for that I apologize!! Life's been throwing me curve balls but I plan on coming back here regularly again. Those of you who don't know me, I'm Russ Allen from Southern Oklahoma and have been airbrushing since 2010. I learn knew techniques every time I pick up the airbrush and look forward to helping others as I can! I've missed this place and I'm looking forward to getting back into airbrushing after a 2 year dry spell due to health issues and life in general but now I have clearance to get back to airbrushing and have my health back on track so I'm looking forward to catching up with ole friends here and meeting new ones!

    I own Insane Custom Stencils, we specialize in Fishing Lure Stencils but make all kinds of airbrush stencils. If we don't make it, we can, so holler anytime.

    Gonna browse around and see what all I've missed so let's do this!! Thanks for having me back!

    Welcome back Mr Allen, you have been missed :) Many have had curve balls thrown at them in the last few years - probably a good indication to the age demographic here !!
    A lot of the old gang is still here. Mitch has 'left the building' to persue other endeavours so now you have to suck up to me :)

    Welcome back Russ. You have missed loads so plenty to catch up with. Like Jackie said, there's still the old gang here.

    A little while ago a bunch of dormant accounts got removed to save the amount of data saved on the server. It’s likely that’s where the old account went.

    I see. I thought there's plenty of space on the server.

    Admins are sure;)

    Server might be the wrong word. I know it was done to help things run smooth, but I know next to nothing about running a website.

    There was a clean up of members who hadn't been logged in for a few years / members who were using our gallery as a storing place for their work but never participated in the forum. I went through all the names and retained all those I recognised but I must have blinked when your name went through because it wouldn't have been deleted if I had seen it. Apologies Russ.

    all of your old threads would still be here, just your account has been deleted

    No apology needed!! Even though I had to take a break from airbrushing I would still point artists in this direction!!! I've always loved this forum!
