Title: Enough of the Welcome Threads Please!
Post by: aquaassassin on Mar 10, 2020, 04:59:18 AM
Please guys, enough with the Welcome threads. No one has replied to them in years. Itís a waste of everyoneís time. Itís only good for bumping down all of the great topics started actually involving HUNTING.

I try very hard to recruit guys to the site who actually contribute and make this site head back in the direction it once was. Itís hard when new fellas come on just to see a Main page with 46 welcome threads and not a stitch of info, reports, or stories about the outdoors because they were all bumped. This thread along with all the others has been dead 3 months! Many others are much older. What makes someone think itíll be replied to now?

The majority of these new members are Robots or people selling corny stuff. Then you get your guys trying to promote business for free. None will answer you, this is a waste of my time and yours. No one cares these days about post counts etc. please do not help make this place slower.

It has been months or years  for a few of you without a single word of praise for the folks busting there butts on here which I find admirable  about them or for you to post a outdoor story to share which is why we are all here. Why ? If you canít get out etc fine,  But welcoming people who will never acknowledge is sustenance now?

Iíve stewed over this for a long time along with others here. Itís getting to that point and Iím trying to be nice about it. Thanks for listening to the rant and in closing PLEASE stop making these Welcome threads and replying on them. If you feel you must just do it all on one like the comic one no one looks at so at least itís contained and easier to ignore. I like all you guys and no hard feelings but the hints are just not being taken.

For the most part I agree with what you say. But, some of us "older" ones are of the mindset, that if you say "hello" back to someone they might just start to talk with you. They say something, I say something, you join in and before you know it, WE have a new member.

I do think that any new person should add a location and maybe tell us something about themselves and their interest.

Facebook and all that new "stuff" has made Forums less active. I know I don't use all that, I don't have a cell or cell service where I live. Not sure if I am missing something or not.

However, I do enjoy reading your post. You sure do put your time in and your success really show.....Have a good day....h2l

I appreciate that! And likewise! My respect is mutual.

I wish it was still of the mindset to say hello and get a reply. Unfortunately the only times thatís happened in recent memory were guys I brought here. Not a reply from anyone else.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm certainly sick of the bullshit on the news. I'm ready to move up to my Shamp away from the rejects in town, no cable, sketchy cell service, but plenty of nature and stuff to do to get ready for deer season. I'm ready to hunt!
