Glad the doofus didn't come here.

The older I get, the more I feel like I am a stranger in this world.  I think that is one reason I like riding a bike.  When I am on my bike, I am twelve years old again and the world is a beautiful a

That’s DP’s airplane. As far as I know he is the forumite with the most toys.

I didn't have many posts there, so I don't know a lot of these people.

I also found many people to be hostile and unwelcoming.

You were a noob.  :D

Yeah.  Many were really nice.  I started posting there when I bought my first bike, it was a hybrid.  I had so many questions.  Some were answered kindly, some not.

I thought it is was hacker, hacky or something like that?

I usually have a brief thought aboot hacker, hackier, hackiest when doing laundry.  Like last night when I thought a bit and then changed shirts when gathering laundry so as to have more for work. :D

This one seems very hard to remember for me, but one of the big contributors to the LF.

To @ChrisL

This one from the LF looks a little clearer and more defined than the one you have now.  Just thought you might want to adopt this older one if it looks better.

In the image the guy actually has a head but I couldn’t format it to fit in the avatar... the original image was saved to an old PC that is long gone now so the headless rider just stuck... 

If I ever mess with my avatar I’d actually like to get that guys head back in the picture.

I hope you don't mind, I edited it for you.  Let me know if you want it reverted.

It is interesting to see the ebb and flow of posters.  I think we had a hilarious time with hackier, but then he just seemed to sour on it, even before the death of the LF, but it may have been the transition that did it. :( 

But irregardless, for all intents and purposes, I am more talking aboot ebb and flow with forum conditions held constant.  Like for instance there once was a poster named Cyclist who was aboot as addicted as me.  Then poof, gone.

They were brutal to noobs on the LF

i hung out in beginners and maintenance for quite awhile posting there. I read over at the love forum but didn’t start posting until I had a good idea of what to expect. I probably had more than fifty posts before I started posting in the LF. Nobody even noticed I was a noob. Several years later and hundreds of posts later Jason noticed me and thought I was a noob. The regulars filled him in. He was my least favorite poster on the LF.

It might look better if you made the fill-ins on the side white or gray.  Let me know if I can help.

Bicycling should have done more to prevent that.

I bought the bike, then had a million questions.  I searched for cycling forums, thought that one by a prominent cycling magazine would be helpful.  I even subscribed to the magazine.

I toughened up a bit, but then I started picking fights.  I stopped posting.

I think when people talk aboot negativity there, it was aboot 70% due to him. :(

Can you turn it into a transparent png?   That would show up best in the various themes.  I can later, I have photoshop on my PC upstairs.

They just really lost interest in it.  Back when the Internet was new I think it probably got more attention.  Once it became a backwater, it seemed to be cast adrift.

Probably on my photo editor, but it might take a while to figure out.  Sometimes they look good if you just add the same coloration of the areas close to the fill-ins.  So if it is gray, I just sample the color near the edge and insert it on the sides.  I'll give it a try, but it might be a little later before I can get to it.

His avatar was a lion tamer in a red jacket with a whip.

He was very Good to me and spent many hours helping me develop a web page. I liked the LF and spent the waning years posting here and there as (montana_cyclist).

Oh yeah!  That was my biggest disappointment by far that he didn't make the leap because I really liked his posts.  Lost to the dustbin of history. :( I also REALLY want to know who 4paws was!  I loved that droll pooch.

Do you have @Further's?  He can't remember what it was.

I looked for it but couldn't find it.  Did he use the same name?
