    I haven't been a forum member long but am on here a lot and I was just thinking how quickly you start to recognise the names of members who post a lot,it's like having lots of new friends,does that sound soft lol..?

    I've been a forum surfer for almost a decade and never understood post padding of days gone by.
    Here is an example of how it should be, like you wrote .
    When I subscribe to a thread it didn't take long for me to start to look for certain names posting in it. I usually remember names for the trust worthiness of their replies , good or bad
    Dontunderstandmyipad is my Ipad hero on this forum is an example. I don't know anything about their post count or length of membership, just that I can trust their posts

    Well, sweet poison is a very common poster to see considering she is about to hit 9,300 posts. :D
    I am only on 2,360.

    Well if we are naming names then I'd say Twerppoet is top of my list, his advice is always good plus a great sense of humour.......if I knew half as much as TP then I'd be twice as clever as I actually am.

    Oh, my favourites are TwerpPoet, Tim Spracklen, Dontunderstandmyipad, I could go on but there are loads of friendly people on here who I rely on and are there in a crisis. I couldn't do without their brilliant advice and help. Good work!
    Oops! And Gabriel1 of course!

    What worries me is when familiar names disappear without any explanation or good-bye!! I've seen a few previously frequent posters just stop posting (and, no, they weren't banned...:D )

    Yeah, yeah! That's what you say........it's not like I am a conspiracy theorist or anything but I heard that you mods have a secret virtual dungeon where you keep unruly posters......

    Familiar names are great.
    Tim is my hero.
    Always polite and patient.
    Twerpoet is a hero with his knowledge.

    It's a great forum.
    Keep up the good works everyone.
    It's fun as well as informative

    agree with all that,coming on here is part of my computing day now,in fact facebook is quite neglected sometimes,would be good if there was a button where you could "like" a post or comment.

    I'm still new but Tim has helped me so much and this is probably the friendliest board I've ever been on, Thanks all so much.

    What about me? Nobody mentioned my name. :(

    Just kidding, I don't know half of what people like f4780y and DUMI know.
    I have just been here a while.

    Tim and sweetP are just awesome.
