All this input about the word "swag". I can't believe this is foreign to anyone, but it might just be that I listen to a fair amount of sports talk radio. They refer to apparel like Red Wings swag, Cowboys swag, Notre Dame swag.
I was invited here by a member. Cant' remember if it was Jason or one of the ladies - we were both members elsewhere and one day I got a message, "Hey, Mark, I found a place I think you'd like........."
I ended up a staff member after posting here for some considerable time. I think it was Reba who approached me. In any event, there is no application process, it's a matter of being asked. I think it was my humble avatar that convinced them.
Back in 2003, I purchased my 1968 Camaro my dad called a StoveBolt. I found some car forums and spent a lot of time on them, but many of the members were harsh and that's when I stumbled into this forum. It was way different in 2004 when I joined.
The "other" site with .com was actually a splinter group from this forum and they took a good number of our members. Ive seen this one other time, but they were short lived.
I can't remember the first time I was a moderator here. But this is, and has always been my home.
I was here when we went from PHPBB to VBulliten and I personally migrated and moved the site to our current software. Nick made the jump to the virtual server and now I'm back to ride the easy train. Not really, haha, there are some changes coming!
