Ohhh nice. Thanks, ryansoh3. I’ve been wanting this one. Count me in pretty please.

BLF has changed my life because I was honestly starting to get jaded with the other sites out there dedicated to my hobbies. BLF showed me what a tight knit community of friendly and generous people is all about, and I am impressed by the amount of knowledge everyone has. I’ve been posting on boards as long as there have been boards to post on, and this is one of the best discussion forums I’ve ever seen of any kind.

Ok, I belonged to LPF, under the same name for many years — I do lasers, too. But, I stumbled on this site, about a year ago, because I like flashlights, also. I quickly found how helpful, kind, and generous people were. I find spontaneity here, people are so genuine — kind: if you are not doing well in health, financially or otherwise, people just seem to immediately embrace you. Even when one looses a beloved pet, one can come here, and all feel the pain and offer their assistance. This forum is not quite like any on the net, sometimes I wonder if it might actually be Heaven, and all are really Angels — 0:) Well, maybe one or two Halos could use a little Silver (Gold) Polishing Big Smile Quite the cream of the crop, we have in this lot .. :bigsmile: Well, it has changed my life, seems more like home, sometimes, than home. Still might drop in on anyone of you and yours, for a Beer and a Couch to sleep on — 8) Cheers to the Best of the Net — and Hey, Mr. Admin, you are our Hero, Crown Beer Party Love

  BLF has caused me to reconsider whether having a paypal account was ever a good idea .

   Blf has taught me what a good light looks like ....what a bad light is ...and what  owning everything in between feels like .

  Nice giveaway

Thanks ryansoh3, BLF has changed my life by emptying my bank account. But, it is a good forum to learn more about lights and read reviews. Also, no Norm or Greta.

Thanks for the giveaway, ryansoh3!

BLF is a lot of fun.  It's a great place to research flashlights and to look for bargains.  There are plenty of interesting characters on the site.  I have made a few friends, and I feel welcome to an awesome community.  BLF gives me something to do when I'm bored, and I look forward to pages of new posts everyday.   Smile

Ooh shiny! Big Smile Thank you for the give away! Party

How has my life changed since BLF? Well, I’ve learnt a lot about flashlight-related technology. I’ve also had chance to meet some really nice people and enjoy being a part of a wonderful community.

Honestly, when I joined I did not think I would post much, just ask a few questions to help me decide which light to get. Here I am, eight months later; I can’t seem to leave! :bigsmile:

BLF has cost me more money in torches than I would have ever imagined. When I joined I had an X8 and a Skyray 818. Both of those are long gone and in the process I have spent well over $1000 on “replacements”!

In saying that, I still don’t have a Titanium light! Thanks for the giveaway.

Thank you. Very generous. How BLF has changed/affected my life.?

I’ve not been here long compared to some but I sort of feel at home here, my flash-light addiction was meant to get me out of the expensive hobby of being a knife-aholic.

The only thing it has done is to give me an unhealthy liking for shining Ultra Violet beams on things.

Also an addiction to the Solarforce L2 series, it hasn’t changed my buying knives.

In the true spirit of every forum – if you can’t decide, buy them both :exmark:

BLF has made me buy lots of flashlight, more than i need. but that’s usually how i do my budget hobbies, buying, trying/using (/hoarding? Oops ). i’m using my soldering station more than before i joined, and it’s nice doing some creative work, tinkering and thinking and doing (and re-doing, and re-doing in another way…)

BLF taught me that budget (read: cheap) flashlights can be fun because they have a lot of options, compared to the expensives ones.

Thanks BLF!

I'm switching my BLF account into LumenZilla. Thanks!

I joined BLF definitely not just for giveaway (although still hoping to be lucky one day). :bigsmile:

I started this flashlight hobby in early of year 2011, and I have been joinning this forum for almost two years. How does BLF change my life? Makes me poor and nearly starved living pass each day!

Ok for the serious note, gaining knowledge knowledge and knowledge. This community is very helpful and friendly, I am benefited from here A LOT, and I am serious.

From checking out once in a while, then daily basis, until now keep refreshing the BLF page even at my workplace! Oops

Thanks people for making this forum great, and thank you ryansoh3 for the generous giveaway!
