I just hope he changes his mind and stays, because I have found his questions (and the answers he gets) most helpful to me. We seem to be at similar skill levels (newbies starting out, but willing to invest effort to learn), so his activities in the forums have aligned very well with my own needs for learning and sharing.

We could argue this until the cows come home. To me it read as an apology.

No offense to the OP, I understand he is young and trying to get a grasp on things, but I guess unless you grew up using usenet and participating in rec.woodworking you can develop a pretty thin skin about these things. I read Tim's post and went back and reread it, and still found myself agreeing with him, to me it was basically nothing more than tough love and some good advice.

Tough love can come at a price...

I complained on a forum that hacking wood wasn't woodworking and got put in my place quick. No BS on that forum..
It's a good thing to be firm, but not good instruction if allowed...

Stay with us as I have found this site to be most helpful. Looking forward to sharing some projects in the works. You can tell by the stack of boards and logs in the shop and basement.
I also feel that Tim was offering an apology.

I am active on this site from dumb luck as much as anything. When I got started (re-started?) in woodworking, I looked for a forum, and this was the hasty "best" choice at the time.

Please forgive me if I am overstepping here, but:

Are there other woodworking forums that you would recommend?
Is Woodworking Talk the best woodworking forum that you have found?

Probably not, to some, otherwise they would be here, and to others that is why they are here. I am a bit old fashioned and still adhere to the unspoken rule that you don't refer members to another forum because you think it is better.

To keep it in 'the family', you can also participate in RouterForums.com and LumberJocks.com. They're both very good and very active woodworking forums.

I've been here almost since it started with Texas Timbers as the chief moderator and fearless leader. The site has changed ownership several times since then and he went off and started his own forum, Woodbarter, but alas he has passed on. Another moderator, R Brown, also left and started his own forum, Woodchat. I belong to both of those, but seldom visit since I consider this forum "My Home". I have more posts than anyone here, so I have a pretty good foundation and a good reputation, lots of "Likes". Some will say that doesn't matter, but it tells you a lot about who the member is. You don't have to agree, but it's a place to start. I was asked to Moderate 3 times over the years, but chose not to. My computer skills suck and my 2004 Dell computer sucks even worse. We have had a large turnover of members over the years for various reasons, some of which baffle me. Good folks just up and leave for no stated reason. Others have passed on and have left their posts as their legacy.

Is it the best forum? The best forum is where you get the "best" answers to your questions and find the responders friendly, have a sense of humor and give detailed replies, at least that's my approach.

What were you expecting him to say? I think he said what was needed without superfluous words.

Each forum offers different things. Why many are members to several..

Except me I've been kicked off two forums so far. Those forums hate professionals...

My account was suspended at Woodworkersone this week for some reason. I have no clue why. I've yet to have a Sawstop or any argument over there yet

In my world an apology acknowledges what you did, and you take ownership of it. No butts, and no pushing of the blame to anyone but yourself.

"I'm sorry YOU thought my words were harsh" still blames the person he is apologizing to.

"I'm sorry I offended you" takes ownership of the situation.

Or even "I'm sorry my words were harsh".

Just the way I was taught, and the way I taught my children.

For those with positive comments - thank you for your kind words. They are greatly appreciated.

For those without - not worth my time.

I love being called "Young" thank you - I didn't realize 60 was still considered young LMAO!

I've been involved in forums way back since the days of usenet, BBS's and when you had to type in the long URL to get anywhere on the internet.

That being said, this is one of the finest forums available - I am on several others as well.

Here when the answers are positive and helpful this forum has the most useful responses, IMO of course.

You may as well just stick around. You can't let one incident out of many spoil your entire experience, besides where else you gonna find a great bunch of guys like us?

New2,
Iím glad to see youíve not quit this forum.
As with life, itís some days chicken and some days feathers. It wouldnt be realistic to expect every topic to be enlightening and ever response to take the topic to a new positive level. But its gratifying when we find topics we enjoy and responses we find helpful. As one poster recently said, with most things there are several different ways to get the same results. Some times itís not a right way or best way but a different way or alternate way. We get many different responses to the same question on this forum and it then becomes a matter of choice for the OP to choose what they feel is the best method to use.
