Respect & finding it here.
« on: March 31, 2003, 01:59:00 PM »
Seems to me that most respect each other on this site and it is a very freindly place to be. I really like it here and believe this is the place to talk about trad topics. You've got me for the long haul.

Seems on the "other" site, especially one forum there is a lot of name calling and disrespect going on. I noticed one thread on the LW that had been closed a topic regarding this site. As a visitor some weeks ago I noticed that anything to do non-sponsor topics or relevance - the topics would dissappear. Is it just me or have others noticed that too?

Don't know.  I haven't really been there since this site got up n'runnin'.  All I know is this is a very pleasant and warm place to be, and was very much needed.  Enjoy!!!  :cool:

Respect is some thing we all have to earn by the type posts we add.  Discipline on the other hand is some thing the moderators will have to dish out.  All I would ask is that we all try not to be deserving of disipline but that when needed it will be administered in a fair and equitable way.  Not like it has been, is being, and most likely will continue to be done on sites that will remain unmentioned

Much of the respect factor has been built into this forum after bad experiences elsewhere.  I don't feel like there is a "muzzle" atmosphere on tradgang, simply a gentleman's agreement to keep things friendly.  As Meathook has often said, most folks would not verbally say the things in the presense of the other party, that they feel free to type..........quite an observation.   :eek:  

I am very much enjoying the "campfire" atmosphere and come here to chat without the potential for ugliness.  It is OK to disagree, but not in a way that leaves folks bitter or angry.  We all have our own way, but that is not the ONLY way.   ;)

I am with yall on this one. I really enjoy this site the way I used to enjoy the other one. I used to go to the other site first thing every day. Now I check it every once in a while. Trad Gang rules.

DL2, this is a Friendly site mostly because it's about Bowhunting and so far no politics are involved. Involve politics like you have on the "other site" and you may notice a change.

Let's leave it on that other site.

This site is great. I'm tired of all the c$%^ on that "other" site. I posted some info about a new bow that I bought. Wow, I was slammed long and hard by some people. Even got a few private e-mails. All I did was post the results of some testing on the bow. Even the bowyer contacted me to say that my test data was similiar to his. Geez tried to pass along some cool info and had my families ancestory questioned. No more, this is the place.

You certainly can feel the difference here.  I like many already mentioned made looking on the other site one of my first daily things to do.  As things started going the way they did on there I spent less time there.  This site is a fresh and welcome change, and I for one support the moderators in their position of keeping respect of each other as an upmost priority.  Thanks guys for a great place to come and learn.............

Supposedly my development was just short of a rock, potato, or some sort of small furry animal. Depends on who you were talking too  :D  . Doesn't matter, I just ordered another one of the bows  :D    :D    :D  .

This is my new home also.  I had grown really tired at the old site.  However there were just no options.

Well, I certainly tip my hat to the boys from Georgia for there creative spirit and for being the great guys they are.
Their intent was to have a site founded on respect and wisdom and that's cool. However, I also have to commend all who have entered here so far. Without a doubt all here are conducting themselves with a degree of professionalism and integrity which make me proud to call this group "brothers".
Who was it that said, "united we stand...."

Charlie, I agree with you 110%.  Lance, Terry and others gave us this site and just ask that we be respectful of all.  All those who have used it so far have been those I too would want to share a campfire with.  I believe Lance, Terry, Admin, etc will do all they can to keep it that way but they need the help of all of us here!  :)

I still appreciate what the LW did for us all. We all have made friends (and some enemies) over there. I still check in every day, but I post less and less. It's just to easy to get into an argument over there. But I will NEVER have a negative word to say about guys like Pat and Brian.

Tom is right, the gentlemans agreement over here to keep it civil is contagious. I like it.

Been shooting a bow and arrow for over 50 years and learn something almost every day here. One thing I do know is respect. I respect everyone's opinion as long as it’s given in a constructive manner. Take what helps you and think about the rest. They may be right.  :saywhat:
