Why Did You Join the V7N Community?
What made you decide to become a member of the V7N community?
Did you lurk for a while first? Or, just join right away?

Sad, aren't I?

pctec 03-26-2007 11:47 AM

I wouldnt say that exactly...
Are you sad? :(
You can cry on my shoulder if need be...

Bearsong 03-26-2007 11:53 AM

There is nothing sad about good research! :D

I confess.. I lurked several days before displaying myself. I could not resist being a part of this hilarious solution-loaded online world.

We sure are glad you decided to join us! :mrgreen:

I have been around since the old forums, so it has been quite some time. I know that I lurked for a few days, or maybe even weeks before actually joining. I can't remember exactly what it was, but there was something I wanted to see that it wouldn't let me unless I joined first -- perhaps it was the Private SEO Forum? Or, maybe I just couldn't stand not being able to respond to the topics and ask questions.

One thing I remember clearly though is that the people seemed so friendly that I just knew it was a community that I wanted to be a part of.

It seems I am always doing something that is not common or almost nobody does, or thought of, or hitting weird problems. I always do searches for answers but lots of them come up completely dry. On many of those, this forum showed up in the results a number of times and once in a while even had an answer where no one else did. After noticing that, I was here hunting another obsure answer and joined. I have been haunting members since :mrgreen: After reading more than just the threads that might have the answer I was looking for, I found this wacky group of people who have fun and share knowledge, experience, and even a little wisdom from time to time. ;) Now I'm addicted!

I don't remember exactly. I do know I was doing a lot of research and somehow came across this website. I knew I would join immediately after visiting as the place has a kind of "home" comfortable, community feel. Glad I did!

I joined V7N because V7N KICKS FUC*IN ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tnk 03-26-2007 03:57 PM

I joined v7n to learn how to improve my website and what's the latest

G10 03-26-2007 04:27 PM

I lurked for a while and then joined as I knew nothing about website promotion and wanted to learn.

Now, almost 2.5 years later, I'm still no better off :P

Actually, it's a great place as there are definitely a lot of good folk here and a lot of the people here have become my virtual family :)

Sorry guys, nowhere else would have me :|

I joined 5 months before I made my first post. I never really lurked, I just sort of forgot about it. Then one day, I think in November, I got bored at my frequented forum, and didn't like many of the other forums that I went to occasionally, and I remembered this place. So I came back, and now it's my second home.....I found out quick that this is a forum that you can find inspiration, I love the feel of community here, and there are very few condescending attitudes, though, it's necessary once in a while....;)

I was told there would be free cheese. As of yet I have seen none. NONE! :x

John Scott 03-26-2007 05:25 PM

I joined for the sex.

greg 03-26-2007 05:30 PM

wow it has been somewhere between 6-7 years since I have joined this place.

Back when john started it he was running adwords fairly heavily to build traffic(along with many other things). I was searching for something and clicked through adwords and found it. So I guess I owe john about $.45 or so.

Anyway, I just loved the community. It was young back then, only about 5 or so regulars. I use to be fairly active, was john's first mod actually. I just lost time for it i guess. I still look in from time to time though

the more webmaster forums u visit, the more u learn!

joecacia 03-26-2007 06:06 PM

I was looking around to have some information because I wanted to get into Graphic Design college, I didn't think I will be stuck for ever with an amazing group like V7 :)

EBORG9 03-26-2007 06:09 PM

Ferre pissed me off in the politics forum, so i had to join to respond to him.:)

Just kidding, I enjoy his spirited discussion.

I don't know how i got here, but what is worse is, i can't seem to leave. I have to stop by everyday to see what's going on, like it's one of your favorite bars that you must check out to see what's going on and say Hi.

greg 03-26-2007 06:11 PM

how did getting into graphic design school go for you joecacia? Not sure how much print related design you can learn here but i believe we still have a decent digital community here.
