I always think of it as being like setting up a stall at a market fair and not expecting to have to pay for the pitch.  A little buying and swapping amongst the folks wandering around the market is one thing, but trying to run a business is quite another.

Well put, it's one thing to go to the mall to meet someone to buy sell or trade a couple things, but to set up a shopping booth or store front in the mall with out paying rent is just plain wrong. And like I said earlier, the price of how much you should give back for rent, should be based off of how much store front you use! JR

Just a little bump back to the top in case anyone needs a bit of a reminder that members here are not here for the benefits of shameless self promotion.....

I could hot stamp it on people's foreheads, that doesn't mean they are going to read it.   :ahhh

Apparently I'm not the only one that thinks this way!

Others simply won't care so long as they get what they want.

I wish this wasn't a sticky so I could bump it to the top  :D

Just wanted to say I agree with everything in this thread, and to thank Grant and everyone who have worked hard to make this a forum worth joining.
I've gained a lot of knowledge asking questions and reading threads both old and new, and tried to give back what I can in the form of answering questions and donating here and there.
I only give money to what I consider to be worthwhile efforts, whether it's for charity or otherwise. I wouldn't give one corroded penny to any other forum I've visited, and I've handed a little more than that to MTo.

This post is swerving quite dangerouslyaway from its own point, so let me just say this- if you're looking to build or expand a business that is relevant to the interests of this forum's members, cough up the smurfing cash and do it properly. This is a good group of people who love to buy new gear and discuss it. It's a reasonable fee to turn such a diverse, global group of enthusiasts on to your product/service, and I guarantee money well spent.

Ok, rant over. Back to the fun, eh?  :drink:

Well, I'm new here. I really have to say that I appreciate the helpful atmosphere, the knowledge and expertise and the self control that I have witnessed among members.

I'm not selling anything and I have no "connection" to any product or service I discuss.

I have one friend who sells an excellent pre made tinder for fire pistons on EBay.

But if your waiting on Raven to use you guys to make a living, pull up a chair and grab a Jack n Coke, cause you've got a long wait on your schedule.

I will drive you crazy with questions that a lot of you will say "why didnt he just google"

Well I did...and that's why I'm here.

 I like learning from people who have BTDT, saves me mistakes. I make em by the truckload...

.I appreciate it when mods and admins lay it out, and let you know what is expected, and then WORK WITH GOOD MEMBERS to guard the community from the less respectable.

Thanks Grant, mods and members for allowing me to be here. I'm not loaded with cash, so my only method of contribution at this point is discussion, but if there's any way I can "pay my dues" faster and help out, let me know....

I hope no one ever says "just Google it" since that really defeats the purpose of a forum.  In my mind at least, a forum survives on discussion, which tends to get very short if folks just answer everything with "Google it!"

You'd be amazed at how many folks stumble on a forum and think "Hey, I should just advertise my product or service here- after all, it's a forum, it's a place for people who are interested in this sort of thing."  I like to equate it to Burger King- they have a nice parking lot, and serve as a good destination for people that want hamburgers, just like MTO does for our members.  The spammers are like people that go to Burger King and set up a BBQ in the parking lot and selling burgers, thinking it's totally okay since that's what people came there for.   It isn't.  Burger King doesn't just set up shop for free, and neither do forums.

As for paying your dues, well, hang out, share some thoughts, ask some questions, give some answers and just enjoy the place in the way it was meant to be enjoyed and we'll call it even.  That's pretty much it- it's simple, but that's the way we like it.  :D

I will never say just Google it either ;) Never have had it to happen to me on here and I don't expect it to happen to others either :cheers: Discussion and questions are why most of us made it here to begin with :tu: I was looking for more info on my PST and LM in general and here I am so many years later still learning :D

I have seen people ask questions in other forums and older members bash them for various reason and ask them why they don't know how to use search or not introducing themselves first etc. etc. MTO is like that and I hope it never gets that way :cheers: Even if asked before I will try and answer any question anyone asks here and if I can't try in point them in the direction that they can find an answer :like:
