Hi All,

Did you know?--

There are 29 JR. Members  (3%)

18 Full Members  (2%)

5 SR Members  (0.5%)

1 Hero Member---Busted Knuckle  (0.1%)

5 Moderators  (0.5%)

the rest (867) are mostly under 10 posts.  (93.7%)

that is somewhat remarkable to me for some reason.
i think some very few of us seem to spend a lot of time here.
What do YOU think?

Devin,

I seem to view alot of readers that don't post.  Yes, I'm on the board alot! so I usually see who is on.

I think there are many that gather quite a bit of information without posting.

I did the same thing a couple years ago.

For instance,

9 Guests, 20 Users
Users active in past 15 minutes:
Nick Badame Refrig. Co., Nemos88, Moof, guy 4905, niles500, 1967_MCI5a, HighTechRedneck, rayshound, SpaceShipBuffalo, belfert, Devin, gusc, Beatenbo, vaunter, NJT5047, NewbeeMC9, David Anderson, roadrunnertex, Lee, Len Silva

Right now we have 29 viewers reading posts. Not all are posting, Most are just reading.

Nick-

It seems about normal from my experience on other boards. Each one has a core (rotten?) set of people who give the the board it's direction and flavor/style. Many others just lurk in the shadows taking in everything. When I join a new board, I try to read a lot of the earlier posts before I post. Hopefully I won't upset the moderators or keep them too busy...  ;D

Hello,,, just my 2 cents,,, I have been enjoying this board and the BUSCONVERSION mag since 2002,,, I started my conversion in 2003 after a friend, Dan Slaughter,,, who owns a bus body shop in Dallas, TX, convienced me not to replace the engine (454) in my 1986 Southwind,,, I dont post much so I am called a NEWBIE !!!!! My 83 njt is about 75% complete,,, I have spent over 20 hr reading almost every post????  I am not a SLOW reader!!!

I love this board and it has helped 90% with my progress!!!!!!

I can't remember how I became interested in buses, maybe the mind protects me from the pain!  I researched the web for somewhere around 2 years before I made that fateful decision to buy!  I know that two or three conversions that had sites full of pictures really fired the flames!  The old saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words", sure hit the nail on the head! At times I get a little frustrated but that never lasts, I haven't come across a situation that I couldn't handle, every single question I've asked has always been answered! Some really take the time to go into detail and i appreciate that also.  The work, dirt, rust, sweat, blood are easy............dealing with suppliers  ::) can turn your hair gray.......most are very good, some others well you find those in every thing you do!  I don't post much unless i need to ask a question or think I can answer someone else's correctly(there probably aren't many of those).  Most of all I enjoy the photographs..........and humor!   Thanks everyone that has helped!                    Pat ;D

Yeah, then some of us old dogs are still trying to shed that "Jr. Member" status.  One of the
drawbacks of "starting over" on a new board. :)

Thanks to you and others who have made positive comments along that line.  One of my "problems"
is that I don't suffer fools gladly, and so I come across as pretty strongly opinionated which some
folks have trouble with, and I'm also outspoken.  One gets that way after years of dealing with what
I sometimes call idiots.  Whether they are or just act that way...  Who knows? ;D

I just feel a responsibility to pass on things I've discovered in the hope that somebody else can learn
the same lessons with a bit less effort.  Something about "lighting the path for those who follow",
which I think is one of our main purposes on this planet.

Another proud lurker here since July of '06..We're in an old class A now which we plan to sell in August and replace with a seated bus which we will convert. Every day here is a learning experience and it's given me a good idea of what Im getting into !!

My main problem is a lack of a computer for the bus and my inability to stay home where I have a planted computer lol.  As soon as I get enough money scrapped together for another run, we're gone, only to drag ourselves back to the house on fumes lol.  This has been ongoing for a long time now.  Does anyone know of any medication that will cure this condition?
