Happy to be a member here
« on: July 14, 2008, 11:39:43 PM »
Well many of yall know that I am a member of several forums.

I have been a member for over 5 years of a forum that is related to my occupation. Needless to say someone posted a thread that I dont know was a joke or true about getting a guy from that forum to moderate it. Needless to say the admin of the site made a post which consisted of name calling and then topping it off with being a smart ass to that particular forum. Kind of like if Keith responded to a post in the stay at home dads forum and called out all the stay at home dads and  then was a smart ass. I dont know about yall but thats not how I roll. Needless to say a moderator start making smart ass comments to me after my post and we went back and forth a few

Just wanted to say thats its rare to find a forum where the staff are not  :asshat: and I'm not saying that because I'm on the staff here. I've watched a few of my favorite forums shrink or go downhill or disappear. On the same token I've seen stuff happen on forums and here where a moderator or someone apologizes even though they might have been right because it was the right thing to do.


Just wanted to say I'm thankful for the guys and staff here, we have a chance to be real with each other yet understand each other or handle differences by appropriate means, keep up the good work everyone :up:

yeah, I gotta say, of all the various forums and boards I've been on in the past, this is definitely the most civil one...probably the only board I've seen where people behave like people, not like anonymous internet people.

This is a good forum, for sure. I think a big part has to do with the like mindedness of us all toward being dads and men. Grown men who have a solid grasp of reality and can recognize what is right, yet with a keen sense of humor and willingness to use it.

Thanks for the post Joey. I thank all of the staff and dads here for making this place what it is too.

I gotta admit fellas,i've never been a huge fan of anyone outside of England,europeans in particular and americans in general,but you guys have shown me that innate xenophobia isn't always the way to go,for me to have hung around this long at DP says something for the company i'm in.i may not always be able to game with you cos of you lot being in 3 different time zones,but regularly hang around DP just chilling or arcadeing,i've seen too many clans and organisations fall apart cos of bickering and in fighting,mainly cos ppl dont have the maturity to sort their differences,just shows what being a Dad does,don't it,big up to the Admin and all the regular fellas.

All comments above are the truth all the way. I'm so glad I stumbled upon this site. Thank you Keith for putting it all together. Thank you to all the staff members for helping keep the ship afloat. And the members, you guys are why we exist and grow larger. Without you all, it'd just be us admins and mods, and quite frankly, I'd get tired of them after awhile. Just kidding. Everybody deserves a big pat on the back and keep it up

This is never more evident than when playing online with most of you.. we more often than not call each other by our first names, rather than our screen name or gamer tag.

What a lucky and fortunate find when I stumbled on Keith and a few by joining a random Forza room. Thanks again!!
