My one year anniversary on here!
Yahoo! It is my one year anniversary on here. I've contributed 830 posts, asked a few questions, got some answers that were helpful, learned about impeller kits, uhmw, using Simple Green HD in my ultrasonic cleaner, and Seafoam, shared my knowledge on here and others locally, this made me look like a real expert, Thanks! I'm sure I've helped some on here along the way. I never felt any questions asked on here were stupid, only questions that were asked by others that did not have the knowledge that many of us on here have been blessed to have. I learned that there are many obsessed, or possessed, on here, that snowblowers are a passion to them especially the Ariens owners! I knew Honda made good stuff but didn't know their snowblowers were that good. I've enjoyed the learning, the pics of old blowers and find particularly useful the Ariens website founded, originated, developed, maintained by SScotsman.
And there are several on here because of their passion for a particular brand, are the experts, in Ariens, Honda, John Deere, Yamaha, Bob Cat, Toro.
And because of the VOLUNTEER moderators watching over us, letting us sometimes go to the edge, not getting too far out, when the discussion becomes heated just before some of us makes a fool of ourselves before we get banned! Unbenown to most of us, when a discussion decision or a member decision requires serious action, the four Super Moderators discuss this among themselves. This I've gathered from my readings on here.
And there are several Moderators.
I don't know the differences or duties between a Moderator and a Super Moderator, but they put in free time and are never acknowledged except for one line under their name.
