    Let\'s bring back a few members

    OK, so there are at least a couple guys that were bluebies that had a boatload of great tech advice to share. They have lost access to this forum and we've lost access to their advice/humor/good looks /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    I'm putting up at least one membership in mid January. Randy might be able to put one up as well depending on the sale of a starter. If anyone else cares to step up don't be shy.../forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Anyways, what I'd like is some feedback and nominations for who you'd like to see a membership given to. I'll personally email the nominated people and ask if they're still interested in participating here so a membership doesn't get wasted. Hopefully we can regain some valuable input from a few guys if they're amenable to the idea.

    So post up your bluebie nominations...but lets try and focus on some of the guys we lost from here that spent the majority of their time in this forum. A personal example is Arveetek (Casey) smart fella, generous with his advice and really knows diesel junk.

    My nomination doesn't count..I'm leaving it up to you guys.

    So nominate away and lets see if we can't get a few of these guys back.

    Re: Let\'s bring back a few members

    If you find a post and their screen name is blue you've found a candidate. DieselDan is a good choice. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif IIRC there is also a Diesel Dan. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Yup. Casey is one guy I definitely miss around here.

    And what about calcide? /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Personally I wouldn't piss on the guy if he was on fire...however, if everyone else wants him here then so be it. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    So far we have more memberships to give away than candidates.

    Were you nominating Calcide Paul?

    Do you see those laughing/rolling faces beside his name? That about sums up my opinion of that clown. If you bring him back I'll be making a drive west so I can kick your scrawny butt.

    Well I had to ask.../forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Just because I don't care for the guy shouldn't mean much if others thought he could be of value here.

    Sounds like a good plan! I'll help if I can get rid of some parts and give up the dough!

    Re: Let\'s bring back a few members

    OK folks...I see we have a pretty generous crowd in here /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif What we need is a few nominations.

    So far Arveetek's name has come up and so has Diesel Dan's. So we have two nominations and anywhere from 3-5 offers of free memberships. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Start digging through the old posts...let's find a few more bluebies that seemed like they liked participating here. As well as bringing back a couple of guys that really knew their stuff it'd be nice to have a little more traffic in here as well.

    OK fella's,

    Arveetek is now orange./forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif If anyone else still cares to step up and turn someone orange I'd have to say (from the underwhelming response) that Diesel Dan would be next... /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Yes, you'll need Dan's email addy too though. Dsplus4@aol.com

    I just sent a note in to Steve with the payment but a pm to Steve would work just as well. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
