Title: First of all
Post by: King Kong on August 01, 2009, 10:10 AM
I would like to introduce myself to the moderator. It seems they run the show to their liking these days. I am a fefugee of sorts so a little gun shy. What was that noise?
Beside myself, how many Bonsai Masters contribute to this board so far? ::)
Have a nice day!

KK, we'd like to welcome you here.  As to the number of masters that post here, besides yourself, there seems to be considerable talent.  We look forward to your meaningful contributions.  We prefer that all topics be centered around bonsai.  Care to make this one about that?

Yes, I do care.  So far I have been introduced to a bsg moderator. You are suggesting my contributions could be something other than meaningful and I have trouble staying on topic.

Have a nice day!

Rather than have a bunch of introductory posts, all that was suggested, a little subtly, was that you post one of your trees and we could get to discussing it.  We continue to look forward to your contributions here.  Have any bare-root ficus that you'd want to post a progression series on?

Gary,
I, for one, am glad you are here. Here's what I was hoping you would contribute. First and foremost, I was intrigued with your hardshell form for root flare and butress on ficus. Can you show us how all that works and perhaps some preliminary results?

Chris

Ok, allot of effort goes into developing a bonsai related progression thread...allot. I have been burnt in the past and will not get involved again until I now there is rule by commitee. Some individual people get very trigger happy and like using their ban button as if they were the altimate savior. I would be more than happy to talk ficus but first I want to now who is running the show, subtly.

Welcome aboard.  From now on, lets keep these threads less introductory and more directly about bonsai.  If you'd like to discuss anything not STRICTLY related to bonsai, we'd love to have you in chat some time.
