How long have you been a Forestry Forum member?
« on: September 23, 2009, 07:39:54 PM »
The question was posed in the Forestry Forum's birthday thread of how many people have been here over 7 years. I figured a Poll would better then citing stats. :)    So how much of the 9 years so far have you been around and how long did you lurk before you joined?

8 years and 63 days where I am right now, one day less back at home. I didn't really lurk much before joining as much as I did for the first 6 or 7 years after. Been trying to make up for it since then. Just had to break out of my shell.

Not long enough!  Less than a year.

Becoming a member of FF should be a college requirement for all those in the forestry/biology/ag majors.

And mandatory for all first time sawmill buyers (or builders). ;D 

Sawmill manufacturers should use this place as a marketing tool-
