Yea Debbie! I believe most people feel like you do. As for me personally, I’m reminded that Christ was a woodworker. So, I apply the WWJP rule: “What would Jesus Post?” Have an awesome day!

Congratulations Debbie for choosing to stand on your soapbox, when the easier choice would have been not to!
I agree wholeheartedly with Benji’s comments. The LJ community should be about sharing ideas about wood, design and all things that make woodworking fantastic. Not to be used as a forum to share personal beliefs,
whatever the “flavour” they may be.
Thanks for all the great work that you and Martin put into this site.

Debbie, you hit the nail squarely on the head. Many prospective employers are now surfing social media sites checking up on future employees. It makes a great difference what we say in online forums. Like the guy in the coffee shop loudly having a phone conversation with his blue tooth, we bloggers need to remember that what we say here does not go unnoticed. Bless you and thank you.

The emag is a great side dish to a exceptional website. I thank for your commitment to its content. You are right on with the things we post. Your not just adding your .02 to a post but letting the world see what your about. To better the world of woodworking and to pass it down to the future woodworkers we need stay on the subject that this site was originally set up for not our causes or political opinions. There are plenty of forums out there for that. Again thanks and keep up the good work.

Well said Debbie, I couldn’t agree more.
That having been said, I believe that the online woodworkers as a whole are much better many of the others I’ve seen out there.
The positive comments and postings here on LJs goes a long way to generate goodwill in the community.

I would like to comment on the Lumberjocks site but I’m not sure that this is the place. Please forward it to the relevant people.
Problems in navigating between someone’s projects and everyone’s projects, or between someone’s home page and lumberjocks site home page.
We, the members of this site are used to it the navigating is obviously.
I tested my case by giving the link of my projects or my home page at this site, to people who are used to computers site but not to this site, they were confused.
For example, when they stay on one of my projects and want to continue to see my other projects, some time they jump to everyone’s projects by clicking on the button “projects at the top of the page. (There are 2 lines of HOME, PROJECTS….. at the top of the page – the main and the personal, the personal is written by small blue digits)
The button for continue navigating to the personal projects or to every ones is at the left side of the screen written with small fonts, white digits on light brown background.
I suggest, not changing only the font but to make a radical change in the navigating.
In order that you can navigating in the in the “main site” area and once you drill down to someone’s project or home, you will see his “sub-site” only and a big button for clicking to go back to the “main site” area.

MsDebbie, I agree with you getting on your soap box. It is a shame that some times things need to be said to help keep this a “WoodWorking” site. Thank you for the great magazine and all the work you and others do to make this a wonderful site.

Keep up the great work.


-- Scrap Wood's the best...the projects are smaller, and so is the mess!
