Come on Guys, don't be shy!!! Get your photos in.....it gives us lots to talk about. Feedback is always positive, whatever level of woodworking you are at. It is really what keeps this forum going.

Its great to see all you newcomers here, but we would all love to see photos of your projects!

I agree get you pics out. You shouldn't worry about other people's opinion of your work because most of it is positive and useful as i have found out and like. Especially when you admit to something and find out from others that your not the only one. Then you learn and are encouraged.

Then Sparky can take the p... out of you! We always like his comments.

The good thing about sparky taking the p out of you is his animated smileys, they always give me a giggle. Al

Like is right, we all started somewhere and without feedback we probably would never improve. It is often the case that we under value or appreciate how good an item of work is, until we are told that it is honestly good.

Post your photo's and treat the remarks like a super market, as you go around you only put into your basket what you like and not one of every item in store.

 I'm pretty sure you'll be going out to get a huge trolley!

Regards Rob.

It would be interesting to know how many of the 3000+ members have written a post let alone started a thread.

I agree the galleries are good especially for starting different topics of chat, but it seems that there are a few regulars, then a few less regulars & finally those who post a question, then dissapear forever.

I`m not being critical, i enjoy the forum. I just think at least 2/3 of members have never  posted anything. I think this is why gallery postings are low.

I like the metaphore of a supermarket.?

But i also agree with Baz, i have only been a member for a short time and i could probably list the "regulars"

We need more galeries as well as posts and threads.? go on its fun really!!

Most people just browse the galleries to get ideas to start with, then the questions & get the answers, then start a different hobby!

I don't think in all of my postings that I've ever taken the p*** out of anyone.

Anyway, so I've read, you cant take your eyes of the front cover of a certain magazine.........crikey mate, you'll go blind on this months addition of it!

Interesting point.

 Perhaps Ben should write in the magazine about this or on the front page as many (I would think) of us regulars come straight into the forums and then go back to the galleries to view new postings.

The thing i don`t understand is you don`t have to register to read the forum posts or see the gallery or view any part of the site. So if you are not going to post anything why go to the trouble of registering?

Terry`s right "it is me"!

Keep up the good work, taking the mick , but I agree with Mikes comments and must post some more pictures.

I was dissapointed with the feed back I got on the thread I started, from 3000 members

Yes mate, it did fizzle out didnt it..........Lets hope some newbies decide to add to the forum AND gallery as we all learn from others.

Marc

PS; Would be nice to view a list of members and have the ability to know who's signed on or off the site.

you seem to apear in so many threads i think a lot of members await your every comment, your encouragement on so many threads alone should bring them flocking, and of course your smilies.

Thats the creeping out of the way...... but i think a list of members is a good idea as to whether they are logged on or not ?.... i never log off it is so much easier to flick between this one ebay and my email if i only log off when necessary?

That was beautiful creeping........one of the best I've heard or seen in ages, even beats the wife's "I put coloureds in with the whites by mistake and your now going to wear pink knickers but, I'll buy the Chinese tonight!"

I think it may help if members should sign in to even view the contents of this site. That way a log would be show how this site draws its members in. We may have over 3,000 members but as mentioned here and before in other threads, only the web master can tell if its 20, 50, 150, 800 that comes on here during the day.

Its wouldn't hurt as it is a free site.
