    Default Old ! (new boy) New member

    Trust you will forgive me if I am approaching this 'New Member' business , all wrong.. Being an 'old' radio 'Ham' anything electronic or otherwise, always interests me , hence my interest in this Digital Forum : NO!!, I am not a so called 'leecher' , I presume that means using the forum to pick someone else's ' brains' ? Although, what use is a forum if you can't pass on your ideas? , without 'bitching' ??

    the trick is to prove to the community you are not just here to leech, and also to not boost your post count by "contributing" to random posts right off the mark. Post genuine worthy information, sparingly at first. Dont ask for information straight off the mark. Read the welcome message. Follow each sub sections rules and after a while we will see you are going to be a genuinely worthwhile member of the community.

    Anyway, welcome onboard. Another tip to sort yourself out from the leeches, spammers etc is to change your avatar - the amount of leeches ive seen who can even be arsed to do that is countless.

    Enjoy your stay

    Thanks for the 'welcome' ? message. Why would I need to 'change my Avatar', tp be a 'worthy' member ?

    CallmeGoose was simply trying to help, your welcome message is well worth a read if you don't want to come a cropper and if you don't like the fact that this long established (Circa 2000) and popular forum has rules then you won't fit in, your choice. . . we are both a resource AND Community...
    If at first you don't succeed.....redefine success. . . .

    Unless of course your name is Goldberg or macmilm, where it's perhaps quite fitting.

    Welcome to Digital Forums. Forum etiquette is quite high on the list here, like in real life you treat others with respect and you equally get it back. Contributing to the threads with good constructive posts gets you noticed for all the good reasons. with time your post count will go up and you will have full use of the forum. This has been put in place to stop Spammers,Leechers and generally 1 post users that want something for nothing, they try and get it and go.

    Digital forums has been going years and has a large fan base. some actually pay for the privilege and they get bonuses over non sub people. With time you will build up friends and likewise you will be seen here as someone that can contribute to the DF Community.
    Enjoy your stay

    Already spent many nights in Macmilm's room, but with his wife and not him.

    Shame, as I expect his bottom hole to be nice and tight unlike his bike, sorry wife.

    True story that you are only gay if you take it. You can be on top or bottom and be the giver.

    If it makes you feel better by believing that then that's fine. If it makes an Ostrich feel better by burying it's head in the sand then that's fine too. (">

    An Ostrich burying its head for what reason? So it cannot see what you and Larry the Lamb are doing? or was it Shaun the Sheep?

    I think you need to stop doing the ("> at the end of every message BigBird and start using a new one.....

    May I make a suggestion ..

    There's nothing going on between me and Larry. I'm not that way inclined. And anyway Baarbra would never forgive me. (">

    I don't fancy getting a Nosh off a sheep, so I would have to do behind.

    Oh, you mean the three of us and not a spit roasting?
