Leatherman sent me some crap. I think I should share. PM me your new address.
subbed as well
For those of us that don't really want to maintain two threads (and would like to preserve what is pre-existing) can moderation simply move the old thread over to the breakroom?
i have seen many people suggest that but no moderator has replied to the question yet, I've seen thePlumbah move and merge threads before, i dont know how much work would be involved on their part, i really dont wan to cause a fuss, or if they would even be willing to do it but i know its possible
I was a moderator on a Linux forum several years ago and know it can be done. With as many threads as we all have it is no small undertaking, but possible.
We are asking these questions now and should have resolution in the next couple of days.
No. None of the forums or sub-forums are to be chat rooms or personal blogs.
From the beginning, this privately owned forum was about the gear, giving folks a place to discuss their interests in a friendly and respectful manner. It still is. And people forged relationships through their posting responses to others' comments about their gear. It was not sterile. It was not stilted, but it respected the individual's thread and stayed on topic. If the comments drifted, staff stepped in and reminded folks with a "Back on topic" please. And it was good.
As the forum grew (and continues to grow) at a pretty dang fast clip, not every incidence of off-topic posting was identified and nipped in the bud (one of the reasons we have the report button so that members can let us know when something is amiss or awry), and members sensed that it was okay to carry on conversations within a thread. Because it was allowed, some members took it to the extreme, somehow making it legitimate. It isn't.
The Breakroom is an off-topic area of EDCF, intended to provide a place for non-EDC topical discussions and findings. For example, you smoke cigars? What kind? Have some good news to share? Super! Let us congratulate you. Want to host a givaway? Cool. Those are break room topics, not politics, not religion, etc. Nearly any topic that conforms to the family-friendly expectations and rule structure of EDCF is fine, but no, personal threads, where people can carry on conversations about whatever, are not allowed.
From the rules: "The Breakroom is not intended to be anyone's personal blog, a chat room, a vehicle to inflate post count, or a forum for a personal agenda in any venue. Threads deemed as such will be locked or removed."
We allowed a few of the threads like "Three good things that happened today" types where members are allowed to post some random things that allowed a short response. They, too, got out of hand. And we had to really rein in the giveaway threads because it became a time-intensive nightmare to eliminate the posts that were not entries.
What happens is that everyone jumps on the posting wagon, and when someone who comes looking for info on gear clicks on the "What's New" button, he/she finds a bazillion posts on stuff that has nothing to do with EDC. It gets annoying, and folks who visit for the gear lose interest and leave, too. They may not post a lot, and they may not be the most vocal, but they come to see what folks recommend or are modifying and find those types of posts are buried beneath the back-and-forth chat threads. They click on a page to view someone's edc setup for the day, and find ten pages of conversation that have nothing to do with what the person is carrying for the day.
What we want to do is to keep the other EDC threads topic specific so that someone who is interested in knowing what others carry or think of an EDC item or create doesn't have to scroll through posts that don't contribute to the thread, however fun and friendly those comments might be. It can be tedious and distracting. Community is still forged by respecting a thread's intent, and the rules have always been there; by joining, each member agrees to abide by those rules, which includes abiding by staff policy and decision. From the rules: If any member has questions or concerns about a staff decision or action, they should address them by messaging (private conversation/PC) a staff member, and not discuss, debate or question in the open-forum. Doing so is disruptive and itself a rule violation.
We encourage members to help maintain the forum’s integrity by using the “Report” function when inappropriate content or rule violations are seen.
We appreciate your cooperation.
Is the answer 42?
really need a sharpie... Black, red or blue ??
I usually carry both black and red, some things black doesn't show up well on but the red does the job
Black goes with everything.
I carry the stainless Sharpie as well in a work bag. I keep forgetting to take it in to my garage and see if it will cling to the magnetic tool bar on my work bench. If it will, I will probably move it to my work bench, or pick up another.
I keep my sharpie in my edc organizer
When I finally get around to 'subbing' people's threads.....
We do this whole.... moving process.
We all know the lawn ape is easily confused after being grassed out all day.
If this is the break room, why is there a picture of gear?
I'd definitely 'return to sender'..... On that craps-shoot.
But, if it's Ti, it won't stick !! Stainless is like... So Yesterday !! :-/
There you are! Subbed.
A titanium Sharpie? Surely such a thing has never been done! But Oddly enough, when I googled it, I was directed right back to EDCF. metropolicity has made them out of aluminum and copper!!!
Nice carry my friend. Subbed!
Thank you my friend.
