How long have ya all been members at Beemaster Forums
« on: October 10, 2012, 09:11:55 PM »
John started this awesome forum in February of 2004.I registered as a member in April of 2006. I was on a crappy dialup(because of the poor quality from my local phone service and it's outdated analog equipment). I became acquainted with many other members through the Ventrilo voice chat program.

The early days of voice chat over my poor dialup tweaked my awareness of broadband. Once on broadband and having great conversations through the board and chat programs moved me forward techologically beyond my wildest thoughts at the time.
John introduced me to the concepts of digital cameras,video recorders and we even ventured in webcams for a while. I can get most answers I need for technical questions through the forums as well as a lot of the latest info on bee keeping.
So much has changed in the last few years with Ipods ,Ipads smart tvs and so much interactive learning.Heck,i think this forum has been ahead of the curve with allowing embedded you tube videos and hi res photos. We took a lot of heat early on by allowing photos and avatars to be posted as this made slower page loading for dialuppers. But by sticking to our guns,I think it was the push for many beeks to abandon the dialups in search of something better.
It has been a fun six years ,and great fun meeting others from the forum. And I hope the fun continues for a long time.

Now,I wonder where I may road trip to this summer?  :) :)

March 2011, would have been earlier but every time I asked for a PW it went off into never never land. I got tired of using a European bee web site and finally got the request through. This is not about the moderators, it just would not go through.

When I decided there was too much BS on BS.

I had recently wondered what happened to you on BS? You know there is a really good bee forum in a European country that starts with a U and ends with a K... It is now one of my favorite bee forums... No BS from the site overlord, No Advertising, and a perspective that is much different from our own.

As far as my history on here: I signed up Aug 08 2006, but have never really liked the software this site operates on, so don't really use it much.

Bluegrass,
Now that you brought up about the software,is it just a personal issue with the software writers or is something lacking in the software itself ? If there is a bug that makes it unfriendly to you as a user,perhaps others have it too? Or is it something incompatible with however you normally access forums,such as a mobile app of some kind?
It may be an issue we can bring up over in computer help or admin forum

When I started on forums about 10 years ago I started on Vbulletin... the format is just what I got used to and now prefer. I know the layout and how to use the features of a Vbulletin forum... I like that Vbulletin lets you rate posts, leave reputation, post polls etc... Maybe this format does as well? I just never have been able to figure all the features out... Probably just operator error :)

Took you long enough.  :-D

Been here since October 2008. Not continuously, but that is another story.  :-D

Prior to that, I had been on only one other forum in my life. Was banned there, then I came here. The ban was revoked the same day since it was nothing more than a mistake, and when I refused to go back, then I was banned again for life. Sometimes it just does not pay to get out of bed.  :)

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Ken!  I can't believe how lazy you are when you can easily look up everyone's details, instead of having us go to all the effort of clicking on our own names and then typing out that information after a very busy day drowning worms or swinging in a hammock or whatever it is Bud has been up to. 

Anyway, I have been a member for 1466 days.

Been a member quite a while now it seems :)

Ken I remember too a lot of bad mouthing in an other forum about avatars and images and how we somehow seemed to snub our noses at anyone with dialup. The same people that complained never mentioned that avatars and images could easily be turned off in profile settings - another forum's political oversite I'm sure - lol.

The world of the Internet grew-up quickly, not everywhere, but most every where. And now people are disappointed if a hi-def video isn't attached to some posts.

A moment of thought though for all those we've lost and those who have disappeared for unknown reasons. I hope those who can come back some day do, and for those who can never are beekeepers in heavens gardens or resting in eternal peace.
