Followup to: Fmt Changes

The new version of FmT 2.0 will soon be here - in about 2 weeks. As detailed in the previous announcement, many of the old FmT features like Train TT, Speedometer, Geo Location, etc. will be REMOVED. It will be a bare-bones simple app, focused on trip blogging.

will be a much smaller and lighter app, focused ONLY on trip blogging. FmT is NOT a Rail Info app. It will be focused on making your Trips more enjoyable and for sharing your Trip.

1. All Trips will be posted to the IRI Trip Diary. You may edit blogs, etc. and the same will also be updated in the IRI Trip Diary.

2. Both Train Trips & RailFanning will have separate categories.

3. The aim is: ALL trips in the new FmT app MUST be enjoyable for the travellers and enjoyable for those who like to follow trips. We CANNOT have boring Trips and inactive users.

4. After the rollout of version 2.0, FmT will NOT be open to all. We ONLY want active travellers and users who actively enjoy following Trips. We CANNOT have tens of thousands of inactive users.

5. ONLY selected IRI members will be able to use the app. All other users are free to uninstall the app. We want ONLY a FEW Selected Active IRI members in the app, who are interested in logging trips and are interested in following other Trips, and who provide Active Encouragement and post interesting blogs.

6. I shall personally work with our pilot users to make their Trips more engaging for others. Just like our FM group, FmT pilot users will be active daily either in tripping or following Trips.

7. I shall be personally inviting some of our IRI members to use the app. Other members will NOT be able to use FmT.

Once again, the main focus will be to make your Trips more ENJOYABLE. ONLY invited IRI members will be able to use FmT.

Many new blogging-related features will be introduced in the weeks/months after the initial rollout.

The centre of RailCal was the availability, which can't be there anymore, because...

Anyhow, there are tons of things to do, and many developments are going on in the background, and this community will surely start expanding and growing again very soon.

Travel SAFE

1. RailFanning does NOT MEAN dangerous pics/videos.
2. Doorplating pics/youtube videos are strictly FORBIDDEN in IRI.
3. Take plenty of food pics and other safe pics.
4. Write human interest narratives to make the pics interesting.
5. Enjoy blogging and travelling SAFELY.

REMEMBER: YOUR LIFE is the most precious thing, NOT RailFanning.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
