Facebook for me is when I fall asleep reading, and get bonked in the face.

Like Dave, I've been spying over there for about a month or so. I tried to post something about a week ago and it didn't go through. I know nothing about Facebook so I'm sure that I did something incorrectly.

It looks like a pretty cool group to me. I think some people think it's either/or. I like both formats.

family, events, articles, news, humor, updates, and tons more with FB, probably too much stuff.
Yes my point exactly- too much stuff If I wanted my old flame from the 7th grade to catch up with me I would join Facebook.

But like I implied earlier I will probably eat my words one day and come begging for an invitation to Tile Geeks- right about the time the cool tile guys find another place.

There's no such thing as too much. There is such a thing as hearing something over and over repetitively. That's when something gets old. If you limit yourself with either format you'll be fine.

I've not been on here for quite a while. Like some others said you can only read so many times to use the search function. Or my personal one was the constant reply "can't see it from here". Always rubbed across as a smart ass comment. After time, just got burnt out. I'm no longer qualified to post in the pros. Moved on to the land of hackery. I tried going to tile geeks, but it eventually turned into the same thing for me. What saw, cutting machine, etc are you using. Last time I joined Geeks, within a week I was getting daily spam from all the corporate members. Tried a few other groups and about the same. Vary rarely get on my facebook account and shut down the business page too. Let my website expire. Tried deleting my account here awhile back. Sent an email request to an admin, we see how well that worked. Anyways, I've rambled long enough. Time to go...

All the discussion of perhaps adding a "pro only" area, and this just quietly went away. Now Mods are "weekend" locking threads that may or may not reopen ( kinda seems like telling a child to go sit in the corner till I tell you to come out ). No adult wants to be treated like a child.....Even if they're acting like one.
Either Do or Don't....Enforcing the almighty MAYBE seems pretty puny to me.

I would have posted most of this in the mud box, but the applicable thread is currently unavailable.

Admittedly, that discussion has been in low gear lately, but it's for sure not over.

We do intend to launch a pros only forum and have been discussing the mechanics of it for some time. I think we are about there. Please stay tuned.

You may be assured that everything posted here is read by the higher ups. That would be Marge and the other moderators.

Getting back into tile

I have been out of tiling for over two years and i am getting into my own business again. I still visit here time to time and i always think how much this forum has done for the tile industry. Go JB. You will be seeing me soon. Hope to post some pics with the works in progress.

In all honesty, I stopped coming here because of the one sided product placement tactics used here. Case in point, if you search old threads, you will find a thread that was started comparing the Kerdi board to wedi. It was several pages long about how much better this new product was compared to its predecessor. I actually found it an interesting read until I discovered one fact- the Kerdi board thread was 6 months ahead of its release. John posted pics of him building a shower with the KB, again before it was in the hands of the contractors. I don't remember anyone here doing that when USG released a foam board, or any other new product for that matter. I think most are very aware of JB's involvement with Schluter and how they help fund this site, all it takes is to look at the Schluter booth at coverings and other industry events and look for Mr. Bridge.
I am not opposed to corporate sponsorship but it blinds people. I have also come across threads in which there were issues using some of their products and the thread will either get moved or deleted. TG has no sponsorships nor advertising so there is no favoring of one product over another. The constant "Schluterization" as is called here was/is over the top and caused me to leave here.
As professionals, we look for unbiased reviews of products we want to try out so that we can be kept abreast of these new products that are available to us. I was reading a thread here today about the GoBoard and the mods/pro's gave it some passing comments but I don't think it really answered or helped the OP's question. It's one thing to promote an advertisers product but it's a whole other thing to act like you don't.
Having a closed forum for a segment of your Pro users would go a long way to maintaining membership. I think this is a valuable resource for the DIY users but for us Pro's? It has just turned into a Schluter commercial.
You asked for honest feedback. There you go.
