Post up people!!!

It seems like no one is posting or making comments on new threads these days. I've noticed that many threads will have dozens of views and only 1 or 2 responses.

When members take the time to post up pictures and make new threads it's frustrating when no one responds, which leads to no one making new posts because it feels like they're talking to themselves.

So don't be shy people, I know there's a bunch of newbies here but your comments are just as welcome as anyone else!

I think one of the problems is some threads don't show up as new...I swear the last thread I started has not shown up as new/recently active...even though it's drawn a few comments. Then again, it is in "offtopic"

Hmm, I haven't experienced that problem, could certainly see how that would lead to fewer views and comments.

I think people just need to quit being shy and say something!

click the paper clip looking thing, browse to where you have the picture saved on your computer and click on it. then hit the upload button. if the pics are too big of a size it won't work so you may have to make them smaller if you don't want to use a third party site.

My wife spilled Bud Light Lime on my home laptop thus limiting my ability to access websites like this...



In 1915 T. Roosevelt said, in a speech to the KofC, "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. "

I was going to start a thread about this.

It seems that this site died since the last time I was on here.

What happened to this site?!!

Weird - I was just thinking that the other day. I'm a member of a New Zealand site and it has heaps of posts and replies every day - heck hundreds sometimes and that's from a relatively small catchment (total population of NZ is just over 4 million).

Maybe we are just more computer savvy.........

And it's is winter here!

I suggest to encourage more replies to your posts you use the following words in the titles: tits, boobs, hooters etc . and maybe some pictures ........

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

I have this dammed mouse that keeps building a nest in the tail of my 919. there must be 10 bikes in the garage and it's mine it wants to call home.
I just refinished the stock on my Charles Daly .22, it was so dark you couldn't see any of the grain.
If I'm lucky next weekend will be dry enough to ride.

Hey Rich! I have a Charles Daly 20 gauge shotgun, would like to see pics of your .22. Better kill that mouse before it starts eating the wiring on your 919.

Sticky traps. Just nabbed one a few weeks back. Haven't had a mouse in years until this one showed up and started darting around inside the house. He's now on permanent vacation.

That mouse ( or his kin ) chewed through part of the harness last winter and I had to patch it up.
Here's a couple pics before and after:

Southern Indiana has/had it's own failed attempt at reactor building. Marble Hill nuke plant. Billions dumped into the thing and it never got completed. It's now being demolished.
