This should be fun
This the only forum I have ever joined ( shocking - I know - lol ) - I jumped right in and a member sent me a message to do a intro post - and I did ! This was my first and the BEST - How lucky am I !
I did way back in 2012.
No I did not, there were so many members that were on the other Talk boards, it didn't seem necessary.
BTW, here's my first post.
Thats been 3 years ago i can't remember why i joined now lol! I stay on here cause a better mix and what it has become.
I think some people "lurk" until they want to say something - then they have to join ?
I haven't been kicked out of a forum yet so I'm not that terrible
I believe I did here, which is unusual - usually I just jump in without an intro.
Yes. I always do when I enter a group. My thinking is that I'm joining a conversation mid-way and those already involved have the right to know who I am and where I'm coming from.
Too, since the forums I join (many -- but few that I stay active in) are typically based on a narrow and specific interest sharing how such has come to fit into my life just makes sense.
That said, "lurking" has never been my way. Not with guitars. Not with anything. (Especially not -- well, when I was a young man -- with women).
I didn't think to do it back when I first joined the S-T forum 2 yrs ago. Just started yapping about my newly acquired VM70s Strat thinking that like the many other guitar forums, it wouldnt be exactly friendly to noobs. Got/shared info and moved on. I even had a handful of Squier guitars by then.
I forgot all about the forum until a year later when after getting reacquainted with my Jaguar I remembered the forum and logged in looking for some setup tips or something. Then I posted my surf vid with the kids as a Jag tone sampler and was amazed my the warm welcome. @duceditor Don gave us a nice shoutout and created a thread on families that play music together. From that point, I was hooked! But never really made a proper introduction.
I've only been an active member of one other forum, surfguitar101. I used to think that was the friendliest group. S-T changed my thinking on that. I don't really check in much over there anymore. This is the place to be.
By the way, hello! My name is griz, and I am a guitaraholic. It has been 6 mos since my last guitar acquisition. It's rough going, but I try to take it day by day...
Cheers, all. Thanks for having me.
As far as I'm concerned, this is now our Unofficial board credo.
All new members should have to fill this statement out upon joining.
I probably would have but don't believe there was anyone here to introduce myself to..
My first post:
Interesting to see that Thinline Tele in Shoreline Gold. I regretted trading it away so I recently acquired another. There's a thread somewhere here about the "New" TL Tele. I'm not letting that one go this time around.
I did. After reading this I am sure everyone is going to go back and look at their own intros. I went back and found my first Squier in that post. An Affinity that played really well for me at the time. I think that I sold it because I found out about the smaller nut and body thickness and thought I should be learning on a "full sized" guitar. Shame on me. Now those things are kinda mute as long as it plays and sounds good. Here it is:
I joined just to buy a MIK Bullet from mkgearhead and didn't do an introduction thread. Real glad I stuck around though.
Yea, I did. I belong to a few military forums and they have pretty strict SOP's about providing an intro before posting. So I did the same when joining this group and its sister groups.
I did do a new member intro, nearly 10 years ago. Has it been that long?
I had picked up my first Squier at a local pawn shop and found this forum. Joined a couple weeks later once I saw how friendly and helpful a place it was. Besides, we have Papa Joe, that alone is worth sticking around for.
Same here. I never introduce myself but did here. No clue why.
I can't remember.
I just figure that by introducing yourself as a new member is the polite thing to do. I'm very old school.
