While there has been “drama” in the lumberjock community as of late, and some of us feel a little divided (me included, and guilty of), lets not forget why we are here – To support, learn, and encourage each other in this awesome hobby we all share! After I was done going through the Hot Projects tonight, I decided I would take a look at Silent Projects to see what was in there, and I was amazed to see projects many days old, with no comments.

So to get past all of the bickering and moaning and groaning that his been going on as of late – lets all band together and see if we can keep the Silent Projects EMPTY! My goal is to not let any projects go over a day without some sort of comment! (not that i will comment on EVERY post, but if we all work together, we can make this happen) I think it’d be cool to see how many days in a row we could keep the Silent Projects empty! Instead of working against each other, lets get back to what we are all here for (like previously stated) – to encourage, learn, and support each other! WHOS IN??


You could also make it a personal goal to not let there be any silent forum topics, or blogs, etc. Anyways, just thinking outloud – thought it would be a good idea; a common goal, we can all work together to achieve and become a greater and closer community than before!!

haha – thanks Glivingston – while i wasnt expecting anyone to get THAT excited over it, it is a good idea! I know i feel excited when i get comments on projects/blogs/etc, and i also know what it feels like to not get any comments. Just trying to boost the or morale :)

This is good, I use to comment on almost every project but as our comunity has grown it’s all but impossible for one person to do that,So a group effort is a very good idea.

Absolutely fantastic idea Dakremer, good post…...
As you say, the reason people come here is for assistance, learning, inspiration, sharing, teaching etc. etc…....
Each and everyone of you LJ’s have the ability share information / talent / ideas etc….. and we should all make an attempt at it. IMHO

glivingston – I must say that I disagree with you on your comment. There are some EXTREMELY talented folks out ther with some absolute masterpieces, and although I cannot attest to seeing each and every on of their projects, I truely believe that each and everyone of them have reached out to share their skills and knowledge. I cannot think of ONE LJ out there that wouldn’t do this for another. I just think the comment was a little unfair, again, MHO…........ not trying to be negative.

I love looking at all the new projects and commenting on them too. You won’t get any argument from me.

oh Glivingston….what am i going to do with you? lol This is MY forum topic – so feel free to “hijack” – wont bother me at all. just keep it PG13, and no bickering – this is a happy forum…Plus maybe if we get enough conversation, we can come up with different ideas to ALL become closer and make this a better site (besides building a giant wooden bed we can all sleep in)

Very good idea dak and another one would be for those who have someone blocked maybe should think twice and give them another chance it could be a word or a comment taken the wrong way and if the same thing happen again you can always block back.

Gmann thats a great idea! I bet the majority of people who are blocked have no clue as to WHY they are blocked (unless there was some altercation) – it’d be a cool thing, for the “blocker” to maybe send a message and see what was truly up – maybe dissolve their differences….
