I appreciate it and it was really cool to make all the divers founding members who joined the forum in early days.

It was impressive, most forums would not have done that or they would want to charge extra to do that.
I have to tell one thing Larry know how to keep his customers happy…………lol :)

I have to tell one thing Larry know how to keep his customers happy…………lol And not just Larry. His spirit, and Joe's, permeates the entire staff at ST. They are there to help the customer make the best choice. Sometimes, they'll recommend a lesser priced product if it better suits your needs. Joe did this with me the very first day I walked in his shop. He even refused to sell me anything because I knew nothing about scuba and had not yet registered for OW (I registered a few days later). This was in sharp contrast to other LDS's that pushed products to me on the same day. I did not hide my scuba ignorance from any LDS. Only Joe took that to heart. I buy outside of ScubaToys IF AND ONLY IF they do not carry AND cannot order what I'm looking for. ST ALWAYS gets first option from me.

Well, when it comes down to it, you are the forum. I just have a little server space, and a ton of work from Tommy! But you guys are what really makes it, and the folks that suffered through out initial start up and cross over - it's really the least I could do... I had some other ideas... but this was the least. :smilie39:

Suffered? In all honesty, it was probably the most painless cross over I've seen.

All I would demand on top of this is make this forum look like a damm spread sheet……….lol
1 – this is addictive might have to go to rehab
2 – makes it hard to be on here and do work or atleast make it look like I am working……..lol

The second thought, my bro, TheSmoothDome, is right on the money. Wisdom, as we've come to expect.

You know....WORK. Like clean your gear, change out your old fin straps for spring straps. Put new batteries in your lights, or charge them. Tie on a new bolt snap. The list goes on & on.

Get a job that requires you to be on the net 24x7, then no matter what you do it looks like your Working!! (even when goofing off with Larry/Joe and crew) :smilie39:

Yes....we "Founding Members" are quite knowledgeable and important.

Now...if you could just change the "Tadpole" moniker under our usernames, to something cool, like
"Dive Stud" or "Widow Maker"...........

What's the criteria for founding member?

Harshal
08-03-2007, 09:24
I don’t know, but my feel is all the people who joined the forum early, in first few weeks of it being started.
Larry might be better at answering this question…… I just took a shot………. 

What we did was run a query for all members who had 10 posts before we did the cross over to the new board format. But heck... get some more posting and at least you can move from Tadpole to Guppy - or all the way to Grouper and beyond!
