I just wanted to say you all realy make people (me) feel welcome and comfortable on your site! And as you can tell I am getting over my fear of posting! And everything about this site is awesome! I used to be just hooked on CL and Ebay! ( now I have a new Favorite) Well sorry to take up your valuable time, you can go back to your GT's now. Chris :smile1:

Getting used to a forum is hard at first, especially if you are new to the forum and new to forums in general. Glad to hear you are warming up to the site :D

Thanks for the kind words Chris, appreciated by all. This is a very welcoming site, the members here are friendly and knowledgeable and eager to help when they can. I think this is what leads to the easy to reply atmosphere here. Post away, someone has to catch up with Daniel :smile1: :poke:

It is just that over the years I have been to hundreds of sites! I would post a comment or ask a question and never get a response! Then I came here and it was like I was asking questions to a family member. Anyway Thanks everyone! Chris

I always feel like that when I join any site. Im always worried people will just right me off as some dumb kid that doesn't know anything, this site was very welcoming to me and nobody has treated me different because of it. Im glad you are a member, you are a smart guy!

Chris, i have been a member of many different fourms under different handles and is still a member of all thoses fourms before i settled with my nickname Trowel, GT Talk is the one place i always come back to, you can hang out here with the guys and learn from the old timers and they will help with any onegoing projects you may have going one, people come and go all the time but the ones with oil running thrue their vains lives and breathes GT and engines.

Chris, I'm glad you are feeling comfortable here. It is a very friendly forum. I have similar feelings when new on a forum, you just don't know how it will go.

Goes pretty good here huh?

You know what? I'm glad a *kid* (not dumb btw) is on this site! Most young people today wouldn't even know what a tractor was let alone a GT!

It's nice you found your way here. There are forums where you get snubbed but I have never seen that here. Everyone is very much family here. Glad you feel welcome.
