I would like to think that most of what I splatter on these boards is worthwhile. I do have my detractors but I ain't gonna pet the sweaty stuff...or however that goes.

I for one ALWAYS enjoy what you you have to splatter. Keep on keeping on.

Where all did you work the old Aardvarks ? Any time on them at McClellan?
I had some hands on experience at RAF Lakenheath in 1982. As an ECS troop, I can't say I ever enjoyed working them.

I've been a member since Sep, '07 and have 2500 + posts. I used to post more, but have gotten to the point where posting is a chore if I don't have something interesting to add or haven't fished a lake/reservoir that hasn't been reported on lately. One of the reasons for that is that I'm active (daily) on at least a dozen forums covering fishing, hunting, guns & shooting, and cooking. There's just no time to post a lot anymore. I do appreciate others who post a lot and for the most part enjoy their insight on varied topics. I don't always agree, but enjoy them. Especially from all you young whipper snappers. Cool

Don't forget the "perks" of simply posting to post. You get access to the premium board where only premium members can discuss all the secrets....lol...I am one of those who doesn't post arbitrarily for the sake of meeting some obligation to remain on the premium board....hence why I was banished....lol.

You need to learn to say "way to go" or "nice" to every post, you'll be to 10,000 before you know it!

Interesting so on the secret forum how does that generate revenue? For me I’m not on that page as from what I’ve been told there’s nothing posted that couldn’t be posted on the open forum.

So hopefully a moderator can qualify if also posting on secret forum helps BFT generate revenue...????

Not a very well kept secret, everyone seems to know of its existence even if they choose to not post there.

It is on the Premium Board.

Oh goodie. Got another post.


PS...If you are not able to access the premium board and would like a copy of the 48 page writeup on Lure Fishing, send me a PM with your email address. It is a 5mb file.

OK here is a question about posts.
Do Private message to some one count as a post?

Had the same issue. Was on the Premium Forum, but because I don't Ice Fish and don't really have anything positive or even negative to contribute during the winter, my posts dropped off to the point where I wasn't maintaining the quota required. When I was advised of that, I just said to go ahead and pull me off the Premium Forum.
But it's no big deal

My first 8yrs was active duty C5, C141, F4, F16. Starting with Mare Island Naval Shipyard was the start of my civilian career working for DOD. I transitioned out of McClellan due to closure.

Way to go Gary, I feel the same way. Of course, I'm not on the Premium Board either.

Thats how I got here. Retired at Moody in 93, LSI recruited me and 2 of the guys in my flight in 69th FS to go to McClellan in 99 and do the workload move to Hill. Then got picked up by CivServ in 2000. All my aircraft time was on active duty. Now I'm in a shop in EMXG. No more dealing with cold or hot flight lines Wink Got 1 year 3 months to retire again, for good.

No, PM's do not count, only post made on the forums, all forums.

Some members do not like posting on the open forums, that is one of the reasons the Premium(P) board was created. Since the rise of Facebook fishing forums, BFT has been in a decline, it's sad we face losing this once great forum because we have so many lurkers that add nothing to this forum but view it daily but contribute nothing. That is one of the reason for the Premium board where member don't pay a thing but a little of their time in the form of making a few post to contribute to it. Everyone that wants access to the P board agrees to that rule before they can have access but then some members decide not to follow that rule when they find out we actually enforce a rule on that board. The P board isn't for everyone and that is fine but it does serve a purpose, even if not everyone agrees with it. BFT makes its money not by people viewing the post here but by people posting here. Advertisers pay to advertise here based on the number of post made and that number is way down. BFT is almost 20 years old now and it takes upkeep, in the form of tech folks fixing problems but it also takes coders to write new code when new things comes along, which happens more and more often now days. This entire reply was not directed at you Forest but members just needed to know what was going on and I think that was the reason this thread was started. One other thing, anyone that has lost access to the P board, for not posting can request access again after 1 years, if they have been posting on the Main Utah board(this board), during that time.

Thanks. I know some have no use nor care but I for one can attest other social media sites have a lot of info including a lot from the state DNR/DWR that post on these other social media sites.

Sad but forums such as this one et al are and will see declining posts and are equivalent IMO to what happened to vinyl records, cassettes, 8-tracks, reel-to-reel, Casey Kasem top 100, Beta and VHS along with laser disks to watch movies along with military aircraft.

Yea it’s technology good or bad but memories.

So again question does secret site or now as you identified known as “P” forum also generate revenue for BFT like the open sites? D

Yes it does, as I said, all post, no matter what the board is called, generate revenue. This is why in recent years we have allowed threads like this to remain on the main board, instead of it being moved to another board, like the Off topic board, there just isn't enough post any more. It will be moved to the proper board once it slips to the second page but we let them go now to generate replies, sad it has come to this but that is just the way things go. That is also why we have added many boards on BFT over the years, like R & R board, the beginners board and the ladies board, none of those, for the most part have succeeded.

On that note you can be certain folks have either left BFT or use it less due to the manufactured "rules". For instance other sites and FB pages folks continue to exercise their freedom of speech and can ask simple questions like "where were you fishing". Here on BFT along with the PB members cannot ask various questions or they to will suffer the wrath....lol...so when you consider BFT is financed partially by members posting you can bet your @$$ it has plenty to do with their dislike for Tyranny.

I have been a member of BFT for 10+ years now. I'm active with a couple of other forums but do see the decline in activity. One would think with all my years as a member my post count should be a lot higher, I was a lurker but a legal registered lurker. More recently I have become more active here contributing little things. With the separate state forum selection here Utah is one of the most active with members if not the most. I came to the conclusion 3yrs ago I do not like Facebook therefore I deactivated my account. I was hacked there twice in a 4mo period which prompted me to shut it down. Also with all of the political garbage I was getting fed up with propaganda. The one pro with Facebook was I got to see what other family members were doing outside my intermediate family that's scattered throughout our country. Now I had to make that sacrifice.
If I could change one thing here on BFT it would be to either add more Emoticons to the ones already in place or change out the existing ones for new.
