Default Well...

Hi Shan, I think we will all work it out. Just as we do on the jobs, I started this thread to get some things moving along, and clarified. I guess with my background I tend to read into things as they are happening, and like to see things progress , instead of regress. I have been on other forums where the folks are downright nasty, and nothing gets accomplished and folks feelings get hurt.
I have been on here for quite some time and would not like to see it change for the worst for those folks such as yourself, who really need some help with their projects.
And of course "we" ,thickheaded, know it all types, with everything to prove...tend to get heated, and occasionally competitive with the quest for the best answer...it's our nature.
I think that is why we get so many good solutions, competition is in the contractor blood.
This place will continue to move along, with the caricatures changing as they do. That is their nature.
Those of use who do stick around, we do it to help people.
Just because it is the right thing to do.

Then there are those Square Eyed guy's who have Glenn as a father, to keep the rest of us in line, and give us plenty of help along the way.
There are many, many, many others doing a great job also, and help to keep up the good times.

" It is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things"

I think that the forum is great! and I get a kick out of 'the quest for manliness' I tell all my friends about the site... they are too lazy to do anything though.... hehehe

The forum is seeing the highest registration and posts per week than ever before. So the community def. is not declining. It's in fact growing faster than before in both those areas.

I have dropped the ball and haven't been around much. The past six months have been extremely busy and the image below is one reason why.

I have improved attachments. I made the file size just under 200k and dimensions 800x800.

I'm going to send out a mass e-mail to members to try to drum up activity again .

I'm very open to ideas on how to improve the community as well as gain traffic. Some people were posting about us on Craigslist which really helped.

So I get to be the first to congratulate you and the missus.
I have 2 of those characters myself, I understand the busy part.
Glad to see you are OK and to have you back around.
See you in the funny papers.

Welcome back TX, sure know what you mean by statement " Busy", just realized I haven't said much over the past couple of weeks. This is sure a busy place these days.

I had an e-mail from Reported Post At House Repair Talk this morning.
The reason for reporting was "SPAM ALL OVER THE PLACE"
Sure enough lol.. There were 21 threads by nikepioneer trying to sell shoes, his listed location, China.
Thank you speedy petey, for using the Report Post button
I banned old nikepioneer and deleted all 21 entries.
Again, I urge you to use the Report Post button when you see something offensive.
Thanks
Y'all have a GREAT day!
