Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

Jeff:

Thank you for the great contribution you have made to giving Escape Trailer owners a voice and a means of talking to one another. While each of us are proud of our trailers, it is a big help to decide what trailer to buy and useful modifications, learn more about our trailers, figure out how to handle normal problems, great places to go. The shows you put on which allow us to hear directly from Escape Trailer owners as well as Tammy and Reace gives us all a big boost. We all owe you a lot for this!

Brian

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

^ ^ ^ What Brian said.

It sure has gone by fast. I was one of the first to sign up when Jeff announced that he had started it up.

Another thing is that it has created a great community. I have enjoyed meeting the members online, and have especially enjoyed meeting of many in person.

I have the glory of being my own boss, who sits at the computer for about 6 out of the 10-12 hours I work every day. Dropping in here (and at a couple other forums) is a nice break to the monotony of office work.
I enjoy the few minutes a day I spend reading and posting here.

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

Thanks Jeff,
While fairly new to the forums, you folks have made us feel at home. We look forward to meeting many of you as we ease on down the road.

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

Actually you guy's deserve all the credit! I just created the framework, everyone else put up the walls, plumbing and finishing touches to create a house of Escapee's. And dare I say a it has been a "ton of puns"

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

Any forum that welcomes me is alright in my book It has been a fast two years. I wasn't one of the original members, Date Registered: November 29, 2008, 06:37:37 PM but darn close. The scary part is when I view the Total time logged in! Where did that time go?? As they say "Time Flies When You're Having Fun"!

There used to be a members list. I can't seem to find it any more. Any idea how many are among our ranks now?

Donna, you're weird. I can accept that.

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

At the bottom of the home page is Stats, which says we have 615 members, which I doubt. Or at least, we don't have that many active.
If you explore that further, you might find more info. I would, but I'm watching The Office reruns and then I'm going to put in a claim for overtime.

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

They just went to commercial so I clicked on the icon for Forum Stats and I'm not allowed access. Don't remember where the membership list is.

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

I removed the member list because I thought it was best not to publish the list as it showed email addresses.. Anyway that was the thought.

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

Jeff, on most other forums I peruse, the membership list is active with no problems. Members can choose to not have the email listed, and on most forums if you email, it goes through the forum software like a PM so the sender does not get your actual address. i have never had a problem from spam because of it, and I am listed on a few dozen forum sites.

I'm on another forum that uses this same software.... Using Simple Machine Forums software is a bit different than vBulletin or the Invision PowerBoard. When e-mailing another member, I find my software client (Outlook) opens and I can see the e-mail address of the person I'm sending too. It doesn't use the Simple Machine Forum software.

Now I understand Jeff's concern of not having the membership list available. Although I trust you all to not spam me

Re: Hey.. We're two years old!

Thank you Jeff,
This forum gave us a lot of information about Escape trailers. We used the information from other owners to help us order our new Escape 19ft Trailer.
