Keep on posting. How long before you hit 6 figures?

Congratulations on the post count.

I think you’re doing a great thing for Lumberjocks. When I signed up, I got messages on my profile welcoming me. This surprised me and I thought it was a robot, but it really was a user being friendly. I’ve never experienced an online forum welcome before and I’ve accounts on many different forums.

Tell you what Jim. With you i know that at least one person will look at my humble projects and give some positive feedback.
