- We do actually have some professionals here. When you wade through the posts I'm sure you'll find them! Welcome to Discuss Cooking and I look forward to some of your favorite recipes!

Hey Cordel, I only joined DC at the end of Oct and I am not too far from 500 posts already!!! Okay I am a blabber mouth, I know!! But to get the most out of any forum, you need to contribute, even if it is only to have someone tell you that you are on the wrong track. At least that gets the discussions happening. Without activity, forums fall over. We don't want that for DC!! It doesn't take long to go up the ranks like that!

There are quite a few topics where my knowledge has been severely limited but then by further reading, I can see a point that I may be able to contribute to within the same thread, even if it is just querying something that is different to in Australia. I haven't started many threads but I try to keep an eye on the threads and post when I can. I also hate to see someone post a new thread and then not have anybody respond to it, so if I can make that person feel like they have been acknowledged, I will, even if I can't actually help them.

There are also so many game threads that you don't need to know anything about that you can join. Have some fun and create some too!!

Thanks, Bilby. Your post in my introduction thread kept me coming back, so I have been trying to follow that example. As time goes on we newbies will get to know others, and be more willing to start or contribute to threads.

Cordel, don't think of yourself as a newbie!! Think of yourself as a member and don't hold back (within reason of course!). Some people with very few posts have been around for ages, they just don't post. If you do something that isn't quite right, someone will politely tell you. For all we know, you could be the most experienced chef on the site. It is only what you type that will tell us otherwise. Anonyminity gives confidence or bravado if you let it.

Glad I inspired you. Now, I just need to find your first thread and remember what I said!! LOL

I totally agree. There's alot of forums where I take in info instead of posting alot. Good attitude to have.

Hmm, I am spending too much time cooking, I guess. I am not posting at nearly your rate. Bilby's posts are chatty and easy to respond to.
