I'd like to offer a polite suggestion to some of our newer,and one or two of our older members regarding giveaways.In July the whole giveaway thing goes gloriously crazy.its great that so many giveaways are on offer,but it might be nice if a few more people said thank you!Regardless of whether the prizes are offered by a knife or Multitool manifacture,or a private individual out of his or her own pocket,it cost nothing to say thanks or cheers...it is just good manners!Even a suitable emoticon folksThank you for your time,rant over

I agree with this, and I try to make sure I say thanks in every giveaway thread in which I participate. If I don't, feel free to call me out on it as it's not my intention to be ungrateful to all the generous folks here. I hope to someday do my own giveaway. The only problem is I don't really have anything that most here probably don't already have or care to own. Someday though, I will do my own as I feel I should give back to this wonderful community here
Oh and it also bugs me that during all these generous anniversary giveaways, I saw several first posts. I suppose that's ok if they were possibly lurkers who joined up and figured they'd try their luck, but I wonder if that's the case with all of them. I guess we'll see how many of these new members actually come back after the giveaways are all finished.
