Am I supposed to introduce myself anywhere on the forum or just start talking?

You must formally introduce yourself and then stand at a distance and wait to be invited to speak. Then you must only speak in the form of questions and never use any nouns. It is the way we do things here…

Finally, you must go to this thread and vote…

hahahhahaha Thanks StumpyNubs and the others. This forum doesn’t look like some of the others I’ve seen—it’s set up differently, so I just wanted to be polite….follow the rules…. thanks ;o)

you can stand in the corner
and mumble to yourself
and wait for someone to notice you

or you can do as you just did
and wait for someone to notice you

welcome to LJ’s

by all means
or blog as you feel

tell us something about yourself
and any work you like to share

Well, if I were you I’d just start posting. A lot of Lumberjocks will get to know you soon enough and there’s more help here than you can shake a stick at. You should just feel right at home and be yourself and have a lot of fun and get some real good help while you’re at it. Welcome to Lumberjocks. :)

Since you’ve already just jumped in and posted, I recon that will work.

You could also post info and pictures (we like pictures) of your shop. And of course you can never have too much information in your profile.

“Follow the rules.” Why would you want to do that. Then all the interesting and truly talented members will NEVER say hello to you…

Welcome to Lumber Jocks.

Welcome to the gang, and listen to everything stumpy has to say especially when he asks you to bring the bucket of steam to the wood show and ask him to show you how the board stretcher works.

Rules?? We have rules?? Wow. Live and learn. If you want to get in tight, follow Davids lead. Travel the country side helping other LJ’s. Or not. Whatever. But, welcome. What’s your favorite flavor of sawdust?

I just took a quick stroll through your website. You’ve got a lot going on! Tired this old man out. As has been mentioned there are a lot of good teachers on here, so you will learn a lot, and hopefully play it back by teaching us as well.

BTW – you live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Heck no , just start talking . Post anything you want in any forum you wish . If you think it’s not suited for a particular forum you can always preface it with the standard ” I don’t know if this is the right forum for this , but if it’s inappropriate…... blah blah .” every time….feigned ( or actual ) ignorance is so ingratiating and acceptable for any number of reasons . This is the Webb Site Guru forum , where you get ” connected ” and directed . I haven’t found a guru yet, but I am prepared to be a virtual guru to any one ….praise be to Shiva …the destroyer and tranformer. While you are here we will be serving everything from soup to nuts . Hide and seek on weekend late nights only . Set your sundial to Brezno time . Lights out by 3:00 a.m. Pevo and continental breakfast at 8ight. Absolutely no sandals , ‘traveling’ , good vibes , or backscratchers in the dinning area ! Pool is open 24/7,
swim at your own risk, and I suggest using the buddy system . Some sharks beyond the breakers at NSTF , I suggest you bite them style ,if and when the urge strikes . Buy an expensive camera and some
backdrop paper and some sopolistic crayons for craft hour , which is held in the annex . No ‘pulse’ only ‘shuffle’
and ‘tektonik’ in the rec room . Ready ? Let’s scROLL ...scROLL OUT…..Rock n’ scROLL…...scROLL ON …........Seawitch
