In the course of a year, I meet a lot of upholsterers, and upholstery supply salesmen who used to be upholsterers. When "talking shop", I usually mention this discussion board. I tell them how to find it, and register/login.
The next time I see them, I'll ask if they visited the site, and what they think of it.
So far, no one that I've talked to has shown any interest. It's strange, because most of them seem eager to talk about everything from sewing machines to Quickbooks, so it seems like this would be a good fit.
Have any of you been able to turn anyone on to this discussion board?

I mention it to as many people as I can.  It's hard to tell if anyone comes here because there are an awful lot of lurkers. 

Regardless, this is a huge tool for the entire industry.  I think it's a great forum to exchange tips.

This is just a thought, but I find that people who don't know how to type are really at a disadvantage on message boards.  Participating  can be slow and sort of frustrating.  One of my good friends from my college days doesn't use e-mail very much for precisely that reason. 

I have to say that "Personal Typing" was probably one of the smartest, most useful classes I sat through in high school, lol.

I like it here and I've told some others about it and have not seen a single one of them get on here.

Now I know that I got on here many months ago....but I'm pushing to get things going so I can work my way into doing good quality work for a fair price so I can get out of the IT industry.

So like it or not....you're stuck with me.  :D

Thanks a Bunch,

Hey, poor typing skills doesn't keep ME away. At least YOU sat through typing. As a senior in '76, I couldn't imagine EVER needing to know how to type. I've been using the "hunt and peck" method for so long, I'm too set in my ways to learn how to type now.
I think this forum is something that people just have to find on their own to fully appreciate.
Have you ever recomended a movie, or restaurant to a friend, and they HATED it? BUT... if THEY had found it FIRST!!!

Same here.  I've talked with friends, reps, co-workers, other people in the biz and I've never seen them on here or when I talked with them they had never visited.  I have no idea why other than that they are just too busy or aren't' comfortable using the computer for communicating with other people.

Some people I know seem pretty sure that they're are people out there waiting to take there credit card numbers and social security numbers, and they're right, there are, but you just have to use common sense.

I know there's a lot of lurkers around.  Even me, I read whats going on but don't really post all that much,but I come to this website just about everyday.

Lurk on lurkers!

Every time I see this thread topic......it makes me want to finish the saying.......

You can lead a horse to water, but if you can make him float on his back? Then you've got something.  :P  ;D

I am a lurker also. I am also a 2 finger typist, graduated in 75 and like Sofadoc never forsaw the need for typing. Thats not what makes me a lurker though I read every post. Im on here a couple of times a week. Lack of knowledge for the subject is usually what keeps me quiet.

Maybe the typing thing was more directed at girls... you know the whole "vocational" thing and the secretarial option.  I was college bound and knew I'd have to type papers (professors don't accept papers that are untyped) so I figured it would be a good thing to know how to do!  Turns out it was, too; I made rather a lot of "pocket money" typing papers for those who didn't know how.!  I was pretty busy long about mid-term.  :)

It's soooo much easier now. You just pull up a few sources on the web, do a little cutting and pasting, and click "Print" ;)
