I really don’t fit in here anymore « on: January 29, 2024, 06:26:01 PM » Author: Silverliner
I think a lot of the members here are stuck up and cliquey and see me as more of a nuisance when I’m around. I lack charisma and I find learning social skills incredibly difficult to make myself more warm and interesting. So I feel I should delete all my pics and close my account. And focus on the FB groups instead.

Please don’t. I know the site can be subjective sometimes and has kinda stunk a bit lately, but don’t throw in the towel yet. I respect you, you’re one of the last original members. Facebook is toxic as h*ll to be honest. Feel free to reach out privately if you want to.

Hey Dave  , definitely don't go !!! As I said in the other post  , this site is definitely on a down swing right now but I'm sure it'll pick up eventually .  Besides , we have several mambers here who can personally vouch for the cliquey , snotty  , stuck up people on FB !  Please stick it out !! In the end , I think you'll be glad you did !

Hey Dave :) You are the valuable member here knowing lots of bulbs you have identified where otherwise it would been forever unknown.

It is certainly not the same on this site anymore. Not what it used to be. Still some good people here but they are all going inactive unfortunately i have not uploaded much to here or been on much in the past 2-3 months and everyone seems new its all new people. Theres barely any original members left on here from when i first joined. I will still contribute and never close my account though.

Yoooo... you're one of the OG members on Lighting Gallery. You're also one of the main member names I think of each time I visit Lighting Gallery.
And it's been that way for years. You're an OG bro... a legend. More people care about you than you may think. You've got a ton of interesting lamps and
gear in your collection, which is another reason why you made it to the OG level in my book, several years ago. Same goes for Patrick, Danny, Daveman, and
all other familiar names I've seen on this site back around 2010.

Stop replacing fixtures that can be retrofitted.

Hey Dave, you have a large collection and the knowledge base to go with it; losing you from this site will just give the rest of us one more reason to delete our photos and accounts and never look back. Please, don't throw in the towel just yet. Hang in there. :) :love:
