It's been a while since I arrived on this board and I'm trying to remember how I stumbled upon it. It's been great, I tell you, though I find I check the board far too often. It's a pleasant distraction from the hard work of the day!

Anyway, I wonder if we could encourage visitors to stop lurking (like I did for months) by showing them quickly what wonders this board holds. Did you see that there are now more than 15,000 posts? Incredible.

You know, a quick link to the Matt Dellinger article, links to one or two or the great reviews you guys write, some of the photos, and other good stuff that you all recommend. Maybe it could be placed as a sticky (?) on the 'Arrivals' thread?

Don't worry about hurting my feelings by telling me it's a dumb idea, because I can see the other side of the argument. Part of the fun of discovering this board was seeing how great is is over my first five or so visits.

I can see that being a good thing for sure, we need a "whipping room" or "hazing hall" hosted by Brodank - kind of a welcome beat down if you will Laughing Laughing Laughing

Seems like it should be a sticky in "Arrivals".

KG, wanna be a moderator? You really have gave the place new legs and fervor already... might as well make it official!

I'm on it! May take a while, but I'm gonna look for some good stuff!

Everyone's suggestions welcome!

I think we're all agreed on the Dellinger article and maybe the Pure Music interview, too.

You had me scared there for a minute!

Do me a favor and recommend a really good review of the boys or a particular group of photos, won't you?

I have an idea to throw out there. Ketch has a lot of really good quotes and some of them don't stand out in a whole interview. If you had maybe a quote of the day or something maybe people would get more out of it. I don't know if this fits in with what we're talking about, I just know that KG is the master at unearthing these words of wit and he would be the guy to do it right!

Hey now. I have been pretty tame as of late and I have not seen any posts from Mr. Dank recently. Keeping it pc may just be too easy for ya. Don't make me get saucy. Laughing

here's an example on how to make a text link

type LINK

highlight LINK with your mouse

click the URL button

after the first URL, in the brackets type =

paste your actual link after the =

so it should looke like this except I added an * so you can see the code,

[*url=http://www.oldcrowfans.com]LINK[/url]

just take out the * above... then it will look like this

LINK

Thank you, Rodge! You anticipated my question! (Have you ever taught? You have the patience it requires.)

I would like to see a video clip section, I am proud of my Youtube clips and have 30 or so from 3 shows up on my youtube channel, After Boone Pittsy and I figured out we had the whole show between the 2 of us,he uses Project Playlist and I use Youtube if we had a Vid Clip section where we could post just links to clips for a specific show that would be cool. If this is a stupid idea or against the rules I will submit myself to a Penelope/Brodank beatdown Laughing

I think the links to the stuff under the respective dates in the "Live" section like we do now is the best way to go, imho. I am re-titling the section right now, so if there is Video linked - the title will (eventually) say so.

babyskitties. My friend called kitties skitties. And my skitties are my babies so I threw that in for good measure. That is my dearly departed Frankie on the left. She was two months shy of her 20th birthday when we had to euthanize her back in June. Crying or Very sad The tongue is some weird shit she started doing at about 18.
I also watched your vids with the fish and your casa. My boyfriend is a serious angler and his last name is Smith so I showed him the lake footage. I bet you considered being a teacher, huh? I'm going to school to be a teacher and it seems like people who get off on sharing their knowledge and experiences and wanting so badly for others to feel the excitement they feel are all cut from the same cloth, despite their actual profession. I get called intense by everyone I meet (shocking, right?) 'cause I always have something to tell you, or show you or a million questions to ask you and I really want you to wrap your head around what I'm saying. I had the pleasure of meeting Ketch once and he's the same way. Stares into your eyes and really speaks to you, wanting you to hear him and it seems he has a genuine interst in what you have to say.
