I guess I was surprised that I rated a well something member, who knew. I read people’s ideas an can intuit if you know your stuff. I make lots of pens, sell lots of pens and other stuff, but definitely do NOT think of myself as any kind of expert. I just try to make better items each time I work. I do like to share and possibly teach as that’s what I’ve done for my career.

Call us what you wish, I appreciate your efforts and like the new software as it handles my photos much better. Thanks Jeff.

Wow. I just looked at my join date....It's been NINE years! Doesn't seem that long since I started turning again.

I look at post counts and go, "huh" and move on to other things. It's mostly just interesting to get an idea of how long the poster has been around.

I look at post counts every now and then, they usually aren't important to me. As a former member that was gone so long I had to register again, my post counts are not what they could have been.

I'm not real good at answering turning questions so I mostly read what is posted as answers or advice following someone's questions. Maybe this is because I don't have the technical experience or because what I've learned has been from my own experimenting. I've only had one person show me anything about pen turning and he wasn't really all that knowledgeable but I ran across him on a woodworking forum and he came across as an expert with a high post count but I knew different. With that experience I don't put a lot of weight behind the number of posts.

So, 6 to 1, half a dozen to the other on what post count and respect rankings mean to me.

Do you know your old account name? I can merge that account with your new one and you'll recover your join date and post count.

I can't remember it or the email I used for it. I'm not worried about it, just used it as an example. Thanks for the thought and offer. . . Tony

Jeff,

I was looking at the member list to see if a local penturner might be a member and ran across my old account name, Hemibee

You have been merged. Check your join date...
Thanks Jeff, I didn't realize how long ago it was but now that I think about it that was just before a shift and location change at work and I got real busy causing me to lose a lot of available personal time on the cpomputer.
