...I’ve only been on this forum for about a week now, and I can’t begin to say thank you for all the welcoming messages, and the kind comments about my pouches. Another forum (that shall remain nameless) that I stumbled across and joined about a week earlier was pretty good, but had some negative comments at first. The forum suggested new members introduce themselves and talk a little bit about what they do. I did that, and some people said it was blatant advertising. I re-checked the forum rules and it said if you are representing a company, please be up front about it.
In fairness, several members (including the forum moderator) came to my defense and I appreciated that.
A third one I joined about the same time, had comments about my pouches like “hmph, you’ve invented plastic” and “where I come from, we call that a tarp”.
I appreciate constructive criticism and have received some in the past several months, which have resulted in improvements to the pouches, such as the tie-down loops that were one member’s idea.
So, thank you, good folks, for the welcomes and I look forward to trying to be a useful member of this forum. I would also like to say that Lumberjocks is, by far, the most professional looking, and well done of all the forums I’ve seen and/or joined.
Keep up the great work.
