Do you have a "forum buddy"?
Posted by: space-time
Date: August 12, 2019 07:39PM
someone know knows your real name, address, tel number, and who could contact you/your family if you don't post in a long time?

or someone who could get in tough with you if this place go down and we need to regroup somewhere else.

It seems that most prefer to be keyboard friends, That is you are familiar with the nickname, the general location of residence and personality, and that's where the line is drawn. Doesn't seem as though there is much want for face to face, having a coffee or adult beverage, etc.
I have tried a couple times to get a few together and chill at a backyard BBQ or restaurant, but no takers.
That said, there are several forum members that I read all their posts, as they are interesting and have interests similar to mine.

MattKime and I are FB friends and there's others that know how I am through posts on here and CaringBridge due to the loss of our son 8 years ago.

No.

There are members of various forums whom I hold in high regard, largely because of their demeanor on forums, I think them to be decent people in face-to-face conversation.

But as to personal information, I tend to keep most of that to myself.

My crosses to bear, if and when I have any, would not be crosses to bare.

This question fits with my thought in posting for support.
I felt that, based on the number of folks who showed up for the luncheon, there should be at least a few who could pitch in person to assist me now.
Apparently not...

Davemchine is a good friend. Met him through the forum and have enjoyed his many family visits to Kauai. If other forum members are visiting the Garden Isle I'd enjoy meet ups.

I can't speak for everyone but in my case a big part of that is that I have either never heard of or have little if anything in common with the few forum members who live within driving distance of me.

I have met with at least a dozen people but most of them were as members of the other earlier place. I have bought and sold items with a few more, so it is possible that someone could track me down if I stopped posting for some reason. None are currently people that I converse with frequently outside of the forum.

Some of us even went drinking with him after the show.

Not me. I shared my IRL persona with folks during the mini-Leader project and had several dealings with Spearmint and a few others, but otherwise I'm the guy in back lurker. Just barely here and not missed when gone.

A little difficult to meet up with other forum members being the token Brit here. Having said that just over 11 years ago I did see JJ and his wife when I did a charity walk. I believe he was posted over here for a while.

no but i'm pretty sure if something happened to me my son would come on and let y'all know. he's aware how much time and energy i've spent here over the years. in fact, just yesterday he asked me about jimmypoo and microchip13.

where is microchip, btw?

Hi everyone,

Only one or two members know my real name and have my basic contact information. I've spoken to a couple of members over the phone, too. That's about as far as I'm ready to go for now. However, I can assure you that if anything were to happen to me, my wife would absolutely get in touch with you. I made sure she has the appropriate access and knows who to contact before posting anything into the forum itself.

Robert

I was wondering the same thing just the other day. Despite his fascination with what I consider to be the ugliest generation of Nissan Z-cars (ah youth... my first car crush was a purple '66 Pontiac Bonneville), he had the makings of a true car guy and I'm always happy to see more of those/us around.

I had lunch with him several years ago when the company he had been working for in college in Colorado got bought by a larger company and relocated to the SF Bay Area. His plan at that time was to take a year off from college and work for them in the Bay Area. I assume / hope that he did go back and complete college and is now working somewhere in the tech industry.

Here's the thread he posted back then about it.

I am working up to completing my "what you need to know" papers and contacting the forum is one thing that I will include ... when I get around to it.

Really do need to get around to it!
