How many are done with NJH?

Recommended Posts

NJH has no leadership. Most of the moderators have given up on trying to control the Wild West
Fine, so why didn't you(mods)lay down the law? I know drag hand tied the hands of the mods but since before the sale an mostly after the site has gone down hill.

I have mixed feelings...

 

On one hand, since 2006 I've been wanting to have the right screen name "Williemo" instead of "Willemo" because NJH won't let you fix it without losing your "Buck Status". So now you know, I've been under an alias for the last 7 years.;)

 

On the other hand, there is no buck status here...I was...a Monsterbuck...a MONSTERBUCK I tell you! :first:

 

And now all those years of 1.54 posts per day might be coming to an end :banghead:

 

Now I am just a guy with 2 posts, no reputation and no one likes me !!:dramaqueen:

 

It might be a difficult transition...:cupcoffee:

what will suck one day is when njh is gone. we lose access to all those great posts. hell' date=' any telefante post is a shame to lose. i've been on NJH since day 2, i was member number 6, so i saw it all from beginning to now. wish we could turn back the clck and start all over again. NJH started when the begining members left hunting.net as soon as Kris started NJH up. building NJH was fun with everyones input. Kris did a great job and i thank him for that.

Never thought about that, Tom's threads alone is a HUGE loss.:crying:

Did you guys have mod access after the sale?

 

 

 

Again not trying to start rumors but I did see that avatar and thought it was funny and got me thinking.

 

He has been MIA the past months???? :popcorn:;)

Going on NJH is like when you were in high school and your parents went away. At first it was just a six pack, then after you were comfortable with that, the keggers started.

 

I look forward to sharing stories with others and learning from them on this site, which, already I am impressed with and excited about.

Funny thing was that when I first went on NJH, I had zero intentions of ever posting on the site. That's why I gave my screen name no thought. I go by Rusty Spinner on fly fishing sites, but I didn't think most would know what that is on a hunting site. All I really wanted to know is if my new deer butcher was a clown (he was and went under quickly). Suddenly I found myself a Monster Buck, lol

When the mods don't have the tools and support (of the owner and of the community) to control the forum, it's a neverending fight.

 

The biggest thing is not having a clear owner there that is taking responsibility. The site is "flat", moderators have limited power and absolutely no power to enhance or otherwise improve the site. It is what it is, nothing more and nothing less...and unfortunately for many users...what it is, is a mess.

 

And why should mods have an interest in managing a forum that they can't even get in touch with the owner of? That's like you volunteering at an organization, continue volunteering for the benefit of the organization but no one is actively running the organization and the owner doesn't pick up his/her phone or answer his/her email. What's the point of no return before you just give up?

I could never figure out what 68Ioweu1 was.

Did you just close your eyes and hit the keyboard with both hands simultaneously and let that be your username? :)

It's funny how I've spent all of 10 minutes on NJH since signing on to here last night. I think the double posts will go away once this site becomes more habitual. I automatically type in "ne" and the auto fill just does the rest but this afternoon, I remembered to type in njf, and here I am.

 

No need to mourn for NJH, Kris did what he had to do and we are here because of it.

Another good thing about this site - it is simple to add an avatar. No need to go to some foreign site in a vein attempt to get it on the other site.:thumb_up:

 

I was avatar-challenged on NJH:rofl:

It was the xbow bashing & selective moderating that started the fall of NJH. While the debates got out of hand in certain threads , it was allowing every xbow thread to head into the crapper that promoted the free for all message board.

I really like the fresh feeling this site gives off. I like reading all the positive vibes and that the mods here now have the proper tools to help keep this forum from being ruined with post that are to say the least not informative or demeaning to some. It is nice to read and post about hunting and everything that comes with it. It is okay to disagree but not to the point some take it. NJH was an awesome site when I joined in 2006 but in the last year it is sad to see it go down hill. I just want to say thanks to the mods who did try to save it and you guys are here now and hopefully nothing but good things for NJFNG and all who come on here to share in a way of life we love:thumb_up:

 

SS!
