The last 3 I asked.  I had one that said yes before that, but I got busy as it was Christmas time and didn't follow through.

It's been a number of years since you have done these @Jeff f and they are a lot of fun. I am wondering now that you have a lot of different members if it would be time to maybe give it another try? It IS winter after all.

Possibly. :)  Be a lot easier to do with a facebook podcast but I'm afraid a lot of members can't or won't see those.

I too would suggest you avoid faceplant. I am there, but there is too much nonsense these days with 'outsiders' throwing in comments, but the video aspect would be fun I guess. I know the one other forum member I am friendly with does not use FB either. Seems like keeping it in the family here might be the better way to go. But it's entirely your call. Is there a forestry Forum presence on FB? If so, I missed it.

I stand corrected, there is, in fact, a forestry Forum page on Facebook, which I in fact 'liked' several years ago, but there has been little activity.

The Forestry Forum facebook page is only there because someone tried to set up a fake one years ago, including stealing our logo. It took a lot of Red Tape to get facebook to take it down. They said I needed to keep and maintain the actual page after that.  I feel facebook is useless for the type of information exchange we have here.  Everything we do here is here. You can find the first posts ever made easily.  I have used it a few times when we had technical troubles here to get the word out, but I don't allow any running questions or posts there. If someone posts there, I tell them they need to do it here.

I'd love to listen to podcasts of other members discussing saw mills, lumber, portable mill business etc...


if there's a facebook group where they are at or where they will be I'd join in a heartbeat!

What happened to people not volunteering to PodCast
« Reply #18 on: September 10, 2019, 09:01:54 PM »
I just found this forum and boy did it make my day! But...

Doesn't anyone find it ironic that the topic of this post is basically that the podcast is discontinued because nobody would offer to participate? And then the only response from you guys was "Ya really, I want to hear more." or "Yes, I want to hear this person, and that person..." without a SINGLE person offering to help. When I joined this site 3 days ago, it didn't cost me a cent. I've since found tons of valuable advice here. Now, I understand that we're all busy folks, but there seems to be plenty of time to respond to posts, or search the database for ones own benefit. Would it really be that hard to give something back to the forum by helping out on a podcast here and there. This forum has over 35,000 members! I'm positive that at the very least, 25% of you are skilled or highly skilled Loggers, Mill Workers, or Foresters etc... That means if (are you ready?) 1/4 of you guys recorded 1 podcast a week, with 1 other member, minus 2 weeks a year for holidays, then there would be podcasts with new speakers every week for the next 87 years!

So I will ask our Fearless Leader - Jeff's question to every member of the forum one more time... Will members please step forward like the real men/women we all are and volunteer to give back to this forum by helping make a podcast? I will. I'm a textbook example of a "Jack of all trades but master of none" however, I have managed to pick up a thing or two in 45 years that someone else would probably appreciate hearing about. I highly doubt that I'm alone in that respect.

@UGiles perhaps it would help if you evaluated the demographic represented here. Mostly they are males, over the age of 45. Of course we have some outstanding women, but they are, unfortunately, in the minority. They are hard working folks that are self motivated to try new things, figure out solutions and keep pressing until they succeed. They are very knowledgeable mostly having gained that knowledge through hard work and more than a few mistakes. They are happy yo share their knowledge to helps others get a leg up. BUT, I think you will also find out that in spite of all the photos they post of beautiful work, difficult tasks completed, and even some bone headed mistakes, they are a humble bunch. Nobody is really jumping the gun to blow their own horn or put themselves up as an 'expert'. We all feel as if we have a lot left to learn and would rather listen to folks smarter than us. That's why you see folks quick to post who they would like to hear from, but they never put their own name on that list.
 Anyway, that is my take. I do not represent the views of the management or the members here. It's just my view after hanging around here for a while and enjoying the company.
 Welcome to the forum and if you are planning on hanging out, why not fill out your profile info a little more so we know something about you?
 I too would like to hear more podcasts, but I also know it is a lot of work for Jeff to put it together. I respect his time and think if he has it to spare, he would pursue it. Having run digital setups like this myself, I have a great deal of respect for the time that is required and would never ask the SYSOP to do more unless he was of a mind to do it. Enjoy your time here.
