Topic tags/keywords: question

Hi friends

I have posted in the past saying I hit 20.000 comments and had a lot of feedback anywhere from “big deal” to “get a life” to “congrats” So I debated about saying anything this time when I’m about to hit the 50,000 comment mark but I thought it was a good opportunity to tell all of you how grateful I am for you sharing your projects,positive feedback and sometimes just telling my I’m wrong about any particular subject, regarding certain operations in woodworking or other wise . I try to be a positive force on Ljs but have had my off days like anyone,so to those I might have offended let’s start anew.
One thing I think that is important is to make new folks feel welcome ,so may I suggest that you take some time and welcome new folks or even those who have not had any comments on the projects that they have posted, to me having things positive and encouraging others makes LJs a better place .
I’m glad there is a LJs to all share and learn together.

Well that is quite a number, Jim! Congratulations on your milestone. I think it is nice that you share with others and make everyone feel welcome and like part of the group. I remember you were one of the first ones to welcome me and comment on my profile and it kept me coming back. Keep it up! Here’s to the next 50,000!

Wondered why every place I stop you were there before me. LOL just thought you might be an official greeter? Some projects have no comments but many views.

People post projects to be part of this and each entry is personal. You serve them well Jimster :)
