Am i the only one impressed that JERRY did a poll?

As Unca Jerry's official technical support person, i must admit that he's come a long ways!

Yep, I'm moving on up in this Technical Age.

Especially since our Logical Moderator was nice enough to send me DETAILED instructions on which keys to poke!!!!

Really just wanted Mr. Wickliffe and Mr. Holley to jump in.

We could "out" them.

Joe Pilar is at my house right now, and he just let it slip he has at least visited the Forum. :p

Man I thought I was bad. There are 397 members on here with out a single post. Please explain to me the difference between a lurker and a non lurker. What determines this number of posts, content or useful information? I think I would be a semi lurker!!:lol:

Lurking / Learning ?

I'm not sure I understand this post, What should be done with members that don't post? I am a registered member here and find this forum extremly helpful to me as I am just a novice that happened to come across a real nice Trumarc pup. I have trained dogs before to be OK hunters, but I thought I would like to learn more this time around. To be able to hear what people like Mr. Aycock and other legends in this sport have to say is invaluble and an honor. I have never posted here, but LURK every day, not to play with friends, but to do my home work, so I can learn to be the best master I can for MY friend. I didn't know I was doing something wrong. Thank's, Court

Hey Backpac,

I don't think there is necessarily anything wrong with lurking at all. I think what Jerry is talking about are those who are very experienced and could add a lot to the discussions.

I think that many lurk without posting to avoid controversy, pissing contests, and other potential negatives.

you said: "I think that many lurk without posting to avoid controversy, pissing contests, and other potential negatives. "

it does tend to get a bit testy around here at times... :shock:

and that tends to be a bit daunting to those of us less experienced... :oops:

It's the passion.

This is a passionate hobby/sport/addiction.

Some feel strongly one way. Others feel strongly the other way. Still others feel strongly both ways. The coolest thing, I think, is the fact people are willing to talk/discuss/debate the who/what/why of their feelings.

Don't be shy...jump in and voice your thoughts. The worst thing that could happen is you might change your mind and, as long as you post on this Forum you will NEVER be wrong...just blame ShaYne for giving you your start in the game and everyone will "understand." :roll:

Regards,

Joe S.

"Lurking".... I learnad a new english(am?) word today. :)

For a couple of hours ago I asked question on a swedish gundog-forum and the answer I got was that "XXX has alreday explained the problem in another thread". I was advised to search for that tread (by myself, no link here) or buy his book :roll: .
Felt like a schoolboy for not have keeping me up to date on everthing that was posted on the forum. Mayby is custom to first "lurk around" on that site for a while before you bother the highly honored gundog specialists?

I am a relative newbie to this forum but have posted a few times but mostly I sit back and learn.

I find this forum to be very insightful and helpful but a tad "intimidating" :oops: for an amatuer and non-insider to the forum. This seems like a tight bunch of folks here (referecne the "Tragic Accident" thread).

Not to say I am shy about posting a question, I do but I get a lot just reading. The comments are more evenly presented here than on some other forums I have visited.

Thanks for everything I have learned so far and what I am sure I will learn in the future! :D

Hope Jerry is still getting a kick out of some of these threads from his perch in heaven. Course, maybe Jerry's wimenz have him too busy to look in on us.
