Chilly welcome
« on: 21:19:01, 03/03/18 »
Made the cardinal sin of posting something twice on this site. Admittedly im a newbie to the site and i was trying to sell something....but tried to put up a couple of contributions just to show im interested ...but very chilly reception...if you are trying to attract new users can i suggest that some of the more experienced posters show a little bit more patience with new users...i think ill stick with trek lite nicer vibe....but each to their own


Thanks

Shame you feel that way as they're some very friendly and helpful people here, you're just experiencing friendly banter, but if you don't want to stay there's no need to announce it  ;)

We're just teasing! Tsk, people are so touchy nowadays!  ;) *

But it's slightly ironic, given that you're posting here about OM Forums which was a far spikier and acerbic place than this - it was downright hostile at times. In fact, that was a major part of its, er, 'charm'.

I'm sorry you feel you've received a 'chilly' reception so, by way of making amends, may I offer you a warm and respectful fraternal** welcome to Walking Forum.

* Winkie to show I'm teasing

** unless you're a girl, in which case a sororal welcome

I think you're being a bit touchy to be honest - nobody has had a proper go at you, just a bit of ribbing.

Crikey, if DA left every time anyone took the mickey out of him...well, anyway.


I noticed you recently joined Trek Lite as "Bruce" and have posted there about Outdoors Magic being up several times there too.

What's the special interest in Outdoors Magic Forum exactly - just out of interest?

OM is just about dead, aint it? I never joined, didnt seem to be much going on.
I wouldnt worry about the chilly welcome. There has been sniping on forums before, worse things happen at sea.
Just enjoy your walking.  :)

Thanks
Trek [censored]  ;D   rhymes with lite  ;D
I posted something for sale on there and got a totally irrational response from one of the moderators,
He totally over reacted and banned me, no explanation, no warning, nothing,
How friendly was that?
I think the "I'm a moderator" power must have gone to his head ::)
Anyone would think I committed murder or something
If I were you I would come back here,
There's plenty of nice people, and a few oddballs (no names mentioned) ahem  :D


So here's a warm welcome from me  O0

Hi all

Im male in case your wondering...maybe being a bit sensitive fair enough.... Gratiously accept your welcome skip😁. When OM crashed i had a  tent up for sale you probably figured that out Neil😰 . I was quite open about that on the other site and i had advertised on this forum as well so i did have a vested interest you could say.  In my defence there was quite a bit of chat about OM and i thought that the outdoor fraternity would appreciate mutiple posts...only kidding.! I still like looking at the old posts on OM some were very heated...does anyone know what happened to the guy who posted multiple threads on stuff...i mean it was pages and pages of links, he was quite entertaining O0

I'm  not very experienced with forum etiquette i only just started using facebook. So sorry about the multiple spam etc etc

Cheers beefy

I think on trek lite you need to have so many posts...not tried to sell anything there. On this site they seem a bit more relaxed when selling.
