... I'm an EDCF Supporter. [Despite Moderator Administrator beneath my mugshot, this is strictly an unofficial-just-another-member post, one contemplated for a couple of months.] 1. The often-cited EDCF atmosphere: 99.99% of the time, EDCF'ers are a civil, friendly, knowledgeable bunch, here to have a fun time with this EDC weirdness.2. I've gotten much from this community over six nine ten years; happy to give back in some small way.3. What better way to add a little "color" to my avatar box than to adorn it with a Supporter ribbon?4. EDCF is arguably the largest gathering of gear-geeks under one roof across the entire 'net — closing in on 30,000 35,000 43,000 47,000 Yes, CPF is larger. Blade is larger. But with a narrower focus. On EDCF, I can indulge all of my hopeless addictions in one place.5. I've met — virtually speaking — many fine people here, and am pleased to call them friends.6. I can count on finding a heads-up when new gear hits the market, often with informed reviews and reliable sources. Nirvana for an EDC junkie!7. Every year I spend at least [classified in case my wife sees this] dollars on EDC goodies. In comparison, the EDCF Supporter Program is uber-cheap. As little as $5 every three months. A genuine bargain!8. I admire and respect people who put heart, soul and dedication into an undertaking, usually at great personal sacrifice. That describes JonSidneyB, our inexhaustible leader/owner, who makes this thing work with little fanfare and no complaint. He just does it ... and we benefit.9. Having had a career in the wonder world of finance, I'm big on cost-benefit analyses. The money I save as an EDCF'er pays for my Supporter contribution many times over. How? I can list/sell EDC goodies for free on B/S/T. I can buy like-new or gently-used gear on B/S/T, often at significant savings. And you can't put a price on knowledge ... plenty of it around here.10. I'm likin' the new forum software a lot! Jon has spared no effort (or $$$) on the conversion and resolution of the inevitable post-conversion issues.It's fast! It's inexpensive!
