Master of Community



  • Dear challengers,  

    The third Masters Community Challenge is beginning today!

    This event is intended for all associations! We're searching for the most fabulous association in the Rail Nation community! But who should judge which association is the best? We think the community! In this challenge, the community will be able to vote for the association that deserves victory. All members of the winning association will receive the title Master of Community until the end of the Masters period.


    ► Event description

    • We invite all associations to participate in this challenge by creating their 'association footprint' and posting it in this > submission thread <
    • The 'association footprint' is a short and creative presentation of your association (you can see an example below).
    • The submission thread will remain open until Monday, 30 September 2019. All submissions posted in the submission thread will not be visible to the public until Monday.
    • On Monday, 30 September 2019, the submission thread will be locked and all submissions will be published.
    • At the same time, we will publish a poll where the community can vote for the best association
    • The voting period will end on Monday, 07 October 2019, when all votes will be published and the winning association will be announced.


    ► What could the 'association footprint' look like?

    • Create a short post with the following details:
      • 1) Name (Association name and logo)
      • 2) Motto or philosophy (A quote or sentence that represents you or is just catchy)
      • 3) Vote for us! (Two or three sentences about why you deserve to win)
      • 4) Optional extra (A picture/meme/GIF of your choice to emphasise your association's character)
    • Only one submission per association is accepted (coordinate with your members to make sure you post only one submission)
    • Need inspiration?




    Good luck! We are looking forward to seeing your footprints!


    Your Rail Nation team

  • Hello,



    Is Rail Nation distracted and pretending that the unjustifiable should be understood?



    When it says: OPEN UNTIL 30 th, in HUMAN language it means that on that day the function remains socially valid for 24 hours, and this is how it happens around the world, even for tax payment .... but what we must understand with these following sentences?

    The RN closed the participation in the early hours of DAY 30 and with it achieved the HISTORIC feat of having published in just over 5 hours the name of the 12 associations that first submitted their data, but after all not even their logo displays at the time of. vote.


    Associations that saved the 30th by improving their holdings like LYNA TRAINS, tried ... tried ... tried .... but left out, ..... because after all Rail Nation, which is supposed to have rules with Strictly speaking, it forgot to say that attendance closed at 06:03 am (GMT + 1) and posted at 11:16 am (GMT + 1) contrary to the socially accepted deadline rule.





    For this, and because they did not show the effort of the presentation, it would be better to have the simple names of put all the associations to the vote.



    Anyway, Rail Nation at its best.


    Good luck.

  • As a German I am not a native English speaker ... however, I learnt that "until" definitely includes the day/hour/minute.

    So, "open until 30th", as my teacher told, means - like Lyna said - including the whole day (30th).

    If they had planned to close at early morning hours of the 30th, they should have said something like "submit your post before Monday, 30th".


    That is, how I learnt it ... would love a native speaker to confirm or to teach me the correct way. Cause, if my teacher was right, Lyna made a point.

    Beliebt sein ist eigentlich ganz einfach:

    Man muss nur immer sagen, was die anderen hören wollen.

    Leider liegt mir das so überhaupt nicht.
