I haven't been here long and during my time I have tried to post sincerely and honestly.
I only give advice when I think it may actually be valuable.
I haven't started new threads when a search of the existing will answer my question.
With one (not to be repeated) exception, I have only started threads relevant to audio.
Even in the clubhouse I only post when the subject is something that I care about.
All of this "good behavior" has resulted in a low post count.
I am aware that the "race to 100 posts" is a major point of contention around here and as a result I have been even more mindful of my visible participation in CP. But here's my situation:
About a month ago at the request of a "high post" member of CP I started a transaction in PM. We came to an understanding that caused me to pack a box and get an exact shipping cost. At that point the other party vanished from the forum.
No judgment on that individual (i hope he's ok) but I now have a box cluttering the front room and the better half is getting upset. If I continue to post in the same spirit then I will not be able to legitimately offer the "package" to other CP members for some time. I don't want to post pointlessly and muck up the forum or make myself look like and a**.
So here's my request:
If you are a member of CP in good standing and are willing to see my situation for what it is then please post a random question for me in this thread that I can answer. I will only respond once for each post you make on this thread and only if it is directed at me. I know it's playing loose with the rules, but to me this feels far more honorable than the other options available to me. Please note that as soon as I hit the submit new thread button I will already have 81 posts. I'm not starting at zero here and you can all search my past postings to see that I'm not jerking your chain.
