Coffee Lounge Closed

1358 days ago by Martin Sojka | 221 comments »

The recent happenings in the forums made me think seriously about the future of LumberJocks. This website has been built on the foundation of woodworking projects and knowledge sharing instead of general chat site for those that just want to buddy around. I came to a conclusion that these two principal differences cannot coexist under one roof. I had to make this tough decision as soon as possible before it is too late. And I decided to go back to the roots of what made LumberJocks so spec...

LumberJocks Joins Escalate Media

1297 days ago by Martin Sojka | 116 comments »

We’re beginning this new year with big news. LumberJocks, as well as HomeRefurbers and GardenTenders joined Escalate Media few days ago. I know this is a really big surprise to you, it still is for me, and I want to share with you the history behind this decision… This was easily the hardest decision I had to make in my life so far and I’m still full of mixed feelings but I also believe that it is a change for the better that had to happen sooner or later. LumberJo...

New Features: Blocklists

1529 days ago by Martin Sojka | 103 comments »

Not one of the positive features but unfortunately it seems like there was no chance to avoid adding self-managed blocklists here at LumberJocks. Requested by many members recently I believe this new feature will be vital for further growth and good atmosphere here. When you choose to block someone, it means they: Can’t comment on your profile Can’t comment on your posts (projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews, workshop) Are removed as your buddy, and you are re...

Based on your suggestions, I’ve finally added Donations page!

Donated money will be used to cover the growing hosting fees, to buy banners and spread the word about our website and to make our unqiue Awards and Challenges even better… maybe I will also buy one-two beers if possible ;) You can choose between donating once or making a recurri...

20,000 LumberJocks Celebration #1: Day One

1463 days ago by Martin Sojka | 80 comments »

I was dreaming about reaching 100 LumberJocks one day when I launched this website in 2005… Then, when it got going, 1,000 seemed likely but 20,000? No way! Fast forward to July 2010 and it’s party time once again in our family of 20,000 LumberJocks. I’m thankful and overcome with happiness that you decided to make this online community part of your life. Sometimes I come across a post about ‘the good old days’. Yes, ‘the old days’ were really good but despite o...

NEW FEATURE: Insert Images Without Sweating

1384 days ago by Martin Sojka | 70 comments »

I’ve decided to resolve the major annoyance related to posting high quality blog entries on LumberJocks. If you want to add some nice photos to your posts and don’t like spending time with 3rd party photo sharing sites like Photobucket this new feature is just for you. After taking an estimated storage and bandwidth into account and doing some math, I came to a conclusion that it’s finally the right time to create a new bucket at the Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) for...

Advertising Policy - What's Crossing The Line?

2275 days ago by Martin Sojka | 64 comments »

My head is still spinning after adding the new site posting rules. Everything seems to be clear, there is only one rule that is already generating lots of controversy and questions (I got few only by PMs). Current version of the rule says: “Don’t advertise your business or the business you are affiliated with. If you have a product or service that you would like to advertise contact our advertising department. Note that labeling projects as “for sale” as well as add...
