Woah, never really looked at my stats, nor cared really. This is a very good question: Why do I have more likes than I do posts? (assuming I'm looking at the stats correctly) This must be fixed.
I try to not say anything when there is nothing more to add to the conversation. On the old forums, which I lurked on a lot, I was always impressed by the amount of knowledge and depth of understanding being presented there on various topics. With the new forums, some of that got carried over, but still left a lot of room for a useful weigh-in, even by somebody like me XD
I want to be very active in the projects thread, as I do have a lot of (really awesome) projects I work on, but at the moment all of them are pretty much on hold because I have no room to work on them. Saving up for a house is not progressing very well, and nobody wants to loan money to me to get one anyway. Maybe I'll post in there for smaller less-awesome projects, like installing gentoo next weekend with a friend.
Anyway, on topic, I'm not really sure I want to join, as I don't really know what joining means. The first thread is not very clear on this.
