I’m a newbie, but i will give it a shot.

This is a huge forum. Huge spectrum of people socio-economically, age, sex, parts of the country, etc. Then you have the skill levels from none to Master. Throw in the specific interests (and inversely the not-at-all interests).

I saw that huge post. It is a lounge type post and does no harm. It is a social thing. Why not? I even made one comment at 200 posts that was a little too risque that they removed and you can see the confusion at around 200 posts about why they were 200 then became 199 magically. lol But I understand. The moderator made a call. I might have done the same thing myself. This is a family forum. It’s all good.

What you want to see and what I want to see is probably quite a bit different. I am not into bowls and pens and boxes. I can appreciate the fine work when I come across it. I keep my mouth shut about the fairly large ration of stuff that I think is a waste of time. But its not my time, and they like their stuff so I can appreciate whatever makes somebody happy to make AND the other people that make and approve of those things.

I was active in the RX-7 club forum for years. The largest post on that site in the 1st generation sections with many thousands of reads and thousands of posts was a thread titled “You know you are a first generation RX-7 owner when…” All the posts are all the members sharing mostly humorous comments that would mean something only to an enthusiast / owner. They made a t-shirt with scores of the best sayings on the back in the shape of a rotor (triangle) that i must say included three of my posts. What was the harm?

So, just be glad all these fine people are on here and there are many that share our same passions or have knowledge or opinion that we are able to seek out just by posting.

It’s all good. Something for everybody.

That’s the great thing about this country, no one is going to force you to read something that you don’t want to read and if some of us want to have a little fun, no one should try to force us not to. What’s the harm. There is still plenty of great forum topics and blogs and how tos and projects here to view.

At least here the “noise” is pretty well policed and most of it ends up in forums that I ignore. So I haven’t seen any real change since I joined—still a great bunch of woodworkers ready and willing to share ideas, encouragement and experience.

I think what pommy means is we see less and less woodworking posting the site is gone more to discussions on all different topics than what it is meant to.
With the CL the entire off topic was all in one location and we had the choice to read it or not, now the CL is everywhere.
What we need is a Forum for “stupid threads” with a heading it is your choice to read it or not.

Pommy, me old china, as the membership of this site increases, so does the variety of opinions and subjects increase. There is more than adequate opportunities for posts covering all kinds of woodworking ideas, projects, information and such. If members do not choose to post items or comment on anything that is meaningful to their particular “LJ need” then that is up to them – free country and all that jazz.
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” so the saying goes, so as an added bonus we had an area for “chit chat” or light entertainment called the Coffee Lounge which was abused mainly by sanctimonious confrontational addicts who went far beyond the code of decency, hence, an outlet for a “break area” was closed,much to a lot of LJs dismay.
Myself, being a lousy woodworkier, cannot offer much advice but I do submit sane responses to things that catch my eye or truly take my breath away or show a great effort.
“Off topic” posts are for those who could use a little nonsense to brighten up their day, and some posts lately have done a lot to boost morale, which I think is great. These posts are not just funny, but also demonstrate intelligence, wit and friendship without flaming arguments and hostility.
There may indeed be some stupid threads, but they seem to be restricted to the WW fanatics -my opinion.

I agree with bubinga there’s a lot of posts here because of the size of the membership. Many different types of people, skill levels, and interests. Am I interested in every post that comes out, NO. But that doesn’t mean it’s not liked by others. I’ve clicked on posts only to find it’s not my cup of tea, so I just move on and respond only to the posts that as Roger Clark put it “Take my breath away”. If the only posts here were about widgets, how long do you think this site would last?

LOL with agallant. If you’re not interested in a post, skip it. If the title sounds interesting, take a look. I don’t think one silly thread it’s a comment on the community or website. They’re just enjoying themselves driving the post count up with nonsense. I enjoy a beautiful piece of woodwork as much as the next guy. But I like stupid stuff too.

maybe have a forum called ‘the kennel’

someone can post a topic

Hey, I think this site is still quite amazing and informative, just this last week I learned about staining in layers, measuring out segmented turnings and got inspired to start two more pieces and rough carved out 4 spoons. I have also met a few more artists. And the tiny competitive person in me wants to finish new things before someone else posts the same or similar projects, tiny and personal competitiveness. I have helped a few people here on their projects and recently made two new wood-artist buddies. For all the crap that gets posted, it is as easy to ignore it as easy as it is to get sucked in. Self-control and brevity are powerful tools here… I fail once in a while, but with so many members if we all have a moment of angst and chagrin… it may seem like a lot over all, but it only a moment for each of us. ~ Just putting out some good thoughts. ~ e

For what it’s worth.

I think the number of views and comments on projects went down right after someone complained people were only putting, Good Job or Well Done, as a comment. Then someone complained about people posting to many projects at one time. Now we are back to someone complaining that there are not enough comments. I was just wondering if there was a magical number that would fulfill these peoples idea of a good posting amount. There is over 60 projects posted a day, you let us know Pommy, how many views and replies there should be and we’ll definitely try to accommodate your numbers.

WOOOOOOOAAAAHHHHHH, My fuse is lit.
Bamm, I go into hospital for an infusion, and when I return, something is posted that IRKS me. So now that I have been replenished with toxic mixtures, I’ll load all canons for a broadside.
YES, the majority on this site are Americans, and some are British Americans to boot. There are a host of British connected other countries represented here too, and much of many home grown American’s heritage can be traced back to Europe, especially Britain.
This upcoming wedding is NOT at this time a political event even though it is the marriage of the future Head of State – the county’s non political figurehead. The Queen, the current head of state has had the job for 60 ( not just 4 and then all change seats) years has done a superb job of maintaining the dignity and decorum of the country, she has NO political power, she can ONLY advise, but as “Defender of the Faith”, she is the guarantee that the country will be free to worship and select governments of their choosing. Most people, including some “recent” Brits have no idea what a Constitutional Monarchy is, all they see is the glitz and have some notion that being a member of the Royal Family is NOT some sort of constitutional imprisonment with no parole.
The British Parliamentary System is the basis for ALL westernized countries all over the globe, most independent countries choose to have a Presidential Head of State and a Prime Minister who is in charge of that country’s government of the day. In America there is only one “Supreme being” at any time for a minimum of 4 years – Head of State and Head of Government combined – in today’s world that would be called multi-tasking, and we all know how well that works? Believe it or not, communism is based on 1 person being in charge of everything, with no independent champion of the people.

OK. The wedding; This is a joyous occasion for 2 people who in this instance were not pre-chosen for each other, but went through a pretty normal courtship, even though the media hounds made it so difficult for them. This event is going to light a beacon of hope for all of us just by being something good, warm and fuzzy happening that takes our minds off the torrid problems we are all facing at home. Rejoice that there will be a day of worthwhile TV where something good is reported and not distorted, as is the norm.
For many Americans and citizens of other countries with connections to the British, this is YOUR day also, it is part of YOUR heritage too, and supporting this day will demonstrate respect for a country who is your staunchest ally, best friend and need I say it, the mother of your own country.
Whatever your views on Royalty and governments are, just remember your actions are seen as a mark of respect or disrespect to the country – Great Britain.

One of the threads has been going on for weeks, while the other was posted one hour before you looked at it. While it may have been prime-time in Australia, it was certainly not the time when most members were on here.

Roger,
I think a lot of new members are posting their projects and questions and then not replying to the comments made. This point was made as well in another posts. On a lot of posts you try to help someone and you take your time to comment and no response from the poster. Not saying everyone but it seems to be a trend, this post as an example, except I don’t we are being much help.LOL There are a lot of good conversations happening on here and then this guy has to comment on his limited knowledge about the sight, so it seems.

Oh yeah and the Brits are taken this country back one reality show at a time, so no worries. ;~0
I think the wedding is a grand event and hopefully sparks some encouragement in our country as well as in Britain.

I certainly don’t think it has anything to do with unruly posts, I thinks those actually help to the increase membership, maybe just in my own deranged mind. Just like most forums there are a lot of lifers that continually contribute and those that come and go like a well placed flatulent. Even looking back at older projects there is 1,000 plus views and only 20 replies, been that way for many moons. The projects are there to look through, get ideas from, and let everyone admire your great work. No matter how screwed up some of us are this is still the best site on the net as far as I have seen.

Oh my, the old adage “you’re F if you do and F if you don’t” is live on well at this site. You can’t please everyone with everything all of the time …...... people are INDIVIDUALS, not bloody CLONES of yourself. WW is the basis of this site, to me that means ALL related things to WW, including nonsense and light relief.
If, as a member you require Hard Core XXX wood only things then you have what you want.
If, as a member you require Amateur Skill things, then you will find them here.
If, as a member you require questions to be answered by knowledgeable people, then you are at the right place.
So why not, if, as a member you require some uplifting banter and make woodworking friends as a needed diversion or break from a WW task or problem, then this site might be allowed to give you that added feature if only some members minds are open a bit and not seem so selfish.
Live and let live, everyone enjoy your particular interest here and don’t venture into territory which is obviously to your dislike.

Well said Roger, well said. And, thank goodness there is no clone of me. Stay on top of those meds.

Twice blessed indeed, Saddle! Roger, I want to have dinner at your house! I have great admiration for you that you celebrate the occasion. Hat’s off to DaleM for the bluntness. I can only speak for myself, but I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the shop these days (plus, I’m awaiting an electric fix-up). It only takes a few minutes to get my fix here, chatting with a few people I respect, whether about wood or not. Maybe I just don’t see the harm.
