Whats up with new members?

buckeyboybuckeyboy Member Posts: 5,833
I see a lot of new members make a few post and then they are gone . whats up with that[?] are we that offensive.[:0] I've even seen questions asked, we respond and they never even read the answer or say thanks.[:(!] not trying to sound prudsish but just my thoughts if your not gonna do somthing go all way or don't bother. anyone have any thoughts about this. "OH" and leave out "Buckey you scare everbody away"[?][?][?][?]

    Ya know Buckey....most of the new members join the forum to find an answer to their question, and when they find that answer, they are done. Not saying that this is the right approach, but not everyone is a forum junky and knows the ropes of the forum junkies, (funkies)

    Gun bans have never accomplished anything, other than to create a safe working environment for criminals.

    No, don't ban Fannin, he's the one who recognized the only worthy professional baseball team in Illinois! {Maybe it's because they're not IN Illinois, they're just across the (itty-bitty) river in Missouri.} There sure aren't any worthy baseball teams in Cook County!

    Instead, let's ban those professional Wrigleys gum-chewers and maybe those Sox, too!

    A wise man once said, "GO CARDS!!!!!!"

    That's a big 10-4, good buddy!

    Oh, Buckey....Don't worry about me. I can dish and receive. That's what it's all about. See, Being a Cards fan, you know what winning and losing is all about....But being a Cubs fan is a little more one sided. [:)]

    Big Al, Nice to see another intelligent member in the forum.

    quote: Ok, is your name "big al" or "bi gal"?

    Bang, I sign my name after every post with a little comment in parentheses, in the same manner as, and with Juju's permission. If you really wanta know, just read the signature.

    And I know you're "just funnin"....that's all part of the fun. Just like pokin' fun at those perennial losers, the Cubbies! [:D][;)]

    Actually, guys & gals, I was LMAO at the ummm.... shall we say, "consistency" of this post on the Archery board. Here's a question from Buckeyboy asking why new members leave so quickly, that has been hijacked into a vote to ban a new member! Hang in there, Fannin!

    With your vote, Buckeyboy, I believe you answered your own question!!![:0][;)][:)][:)]

    OOPS, lost another one.[:0] sorry fellas. NOT . I actually try to see how persistant new members will be when challanged.[;)] lets us know if they have any[8][8]"S[:0] The only reason I like this forum is because of the regulars . I have visited other forums and they are on a power trip. They are so *. nit pickey little friends. all the regulars here are cool. even if its not about archery.

    Okay FANNIN, I'll reverse my vote, and give you $10 if you just admit that the Cardinals are Neo-Commie Pinkos.

    Well, it's hot (104 degrees) with a slight breeze and less than 10% humidity. But that's in Tucson, Ben. The Cubs train (if you call it that) up in Mesa, AZ at Hohokam Stadium, I believe. That's where we send all the "hokum" teams, Mesa and Tempe, Arizona. Yeah. [;)][:D]

    quote: OOPS, lost another one. sorry fellas. NOT

    You cain't count, Buckey? Two "Ayes" and two "Nays"...that's a tie, not a win. You sure you're not following Chicago Cubs score-keeping tradition?

    I guess it's true what you said, Buckey....

    Big Al (who knows the humidity back there is WAY higher than 10% and is very glad he's out here!) [:D][:D]

    Sorry folks.....today was my golf day. Damn it was hot. About 95, but don't worry everyone, it didn't mess up my game....still as bad as ever.
    Buckey, I'll have to admit, I'll never be a regular here...I just look in and see if something is worth commenting about when I'm bored (Guess you can figure out if I'm bored or not). I do like the irony of you post in this topic though.
    Ben....Ben, Ben, Ben...you can keep you $10. I bet a guy $100 last year that the Cards would have a better reg. season record than the Cubs...Needless to say, he wouldn't bet me again this year. [:)]
    Nuff said.

    NO big head at least not on my shoulders[:D] just my opinion. ELDER just watch the little stars next to your name and they will let you know when your a member.[8D]I take my hunting seriously and my archery. but half the fun of it for me is the ball busting and comrodary when it's not fun and like a job I QUIT.[:0] This was my main beef someone comes on a forum to ask a question. I take the time to research and answerit trying to make them feel welcome. they never even reply. So that leaves me to believe they are most likly some smart * from another forum who is using my answer to post somewhere else.[xx(]

    Man....you guys get offended too easily. I guess my dry sense of humor doesn't show up very well in a post. I am NOT one of the * forum guys, by the way. I am you're typical "new guy" to forums though. And Buckey yes I do hunt. I have only been at it for about 3 years though. I was raised a city boy, who's dad didn't hunt. My father-in-law is an avid hunter and now I am in the learning process. I just got into bow hunting. My first kill with a bow was a 25# Gobbler with 5 beards and 1-1/8" spurs. I am planning to go Elk hunting this fall in Co. Anyone Else from MO, by the way?
