fwiw,
I find people on r/flashlight extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly

A story:

——

A man moved to a new town. He asked a local resident whether the people there were friendly or not.

The resident asked the man, “What were people like where you used to live?”

The newcomer scowled and said, “They were really an unfriendly and rude bunch, and I couldn’t wait to get away from that place.”

The resident said, “Well, I’m afraid you’ll find the people here are pretty much the same.”

A week later, another man came to town. He happened to meet the same resident and asked him the same question. The local asked this second newcomer the same question: “What were the people like in the town where you used to live?”

This newcomer smiled and said, “Oh, that town was the friendliest place you could ever imagine.”

The local returned the smile and said, “Well, I’m glad to hear it, I think you’ll find people here are very friendly too.”

A forum like this lends itself to easier searching & information retainment. Reddit suffers a lot on that front. It’s ironic… as the advanced software of Reddit could be adjusted to give it a better “library archive” experience, but they just don’t do it.

Yep, threading and finding new comments on a post is another deficiency. I can’t believe that a site with their level of resources can be so clumsy and limited in that respect. If a post gets more than about 20 comments it’s almost possible to read them all, with some getting buried by the threading, and others getting hidden depending on the popularity of the posts surrounding it.

So true, that parable is a real gem. My corollary to it is also one of my favorite jokes. A guy goes to the doctor: “Doctor, I hurt everywhere! It hurts here (indicating his chest) and here (touching his neck) and even here (touching his shin).” The doctor takes him by the hand and replies: “Hmmmmmm, yes, that explains it. You’ve got a broken finger.”

Nice!

I read a fair bit of Ask A Manager so i know there are lots of rotten situations but your outlook on life will play a large part in determining your potential.

Only reason I visit that trash forum once a fortnight or so is to check Vinh’s modded lights, however I haven’t even bought one since I started buying Emisar lights.
FYI: if you even mention this forum or link a thread here your post is deleted and you get a warning, that is beyond pathetic.
Anyway, that forum is a business, not even comparable to this excellent forum. I did have a good laugh when I got a PM from the new owner asking for money for membership fee’s. Can’t even sell your lights over there without membership fee’s Facepalm
