WFF Thanks for the memories. I'm stepping down as a moderator

There is nothing wrong with 25 watts. In fact they are the accepted and recommended standard by the International Outdoor Lighting Council (IOLC).
Maybe you think you know more than they do. You must have voted for the current dim bulb in the white house. ☺️[/]
Re-read my post, there’s a couple of key words that you may have missed.

Ps: suggest more than 25 watts when you read anything.

A very close friend of mine on the board sent me this. I have to share because it's funny and true. She modified it for me.

Stole this from another group

**A day in the life of a WFF admin**

Q: How many people does it take to change a lightbulb on WFF?

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.

7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

17 purists who use candles and are offended by light bulb discussions.

6 to argue over whether it's 'lightbulb' or 'light bulb'.

Another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid.

22 to tell THOSE 6 to stop being jackasses.

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is 'lamp'.

15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that 'light bulb' is perfectly correct.

13 to say "Do a search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs".

249 to post memes and gifs

19 to post that this sub-forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb sub-forum.

11 to defend the posting to this sub-forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant here.

12 to post unintelligible or unrelated crap.

8 to ask what the heck they are talking about.

16 to post that they are sick of light bulb threads and 47 remind them that they don’t need to open and read the threads.

36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty.

7 to ask if the brands of light bulbs used are worth the money.

19 to tell them that if they like the light bulbs, just buy them.

5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs.

9 people to post pics of light bulbs they hope to buy someday.

3 people to post that they are stupid for spending that much on a light bulb.

15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and use their own light bulbs.

3 people to post that they can’t figure out how to post pictures of their light bulbs.

6 people point them to the sticky on how to post pics.

2 people to post that still can’t do it. And complain to admins. Again.

7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's.

13 to comment "This thread sucks".

5 to post to the forum that they will no longer post or are leaving because they cannot handle the $!%cking light bulb controversy.

6 to report the post or PM an admin because someone said "f÷×$"

22 to ask why people were getting their panties in a wad and leaving over light bulbs.

34 to post cry baby memes.

13 to ask why people need to announce that they are leaving, just leave already.

39 to blame the admins over making them leave.

67 to predict “he will be back”.

4 to say "Didn't we go through this already a short time ago?".

1 to bring politics into the discussion by adding that (insert politician of choice) isn't the brightest bulb.

4 more to get into personal attacks over their political views.

5 admins to ban the light bulb posters who took it all too seriously.

1 late arrival to comment on the original post 6 months later and start it all over again!

That perfectly sums up the shit you've had to deal with!

And you always did it well! I hope this frees up some fishing time for you.

Cheers!

Jerry, you are a great example to all the guys and girls out there of what it means to volunteer. There are a lot of us who put in time in ways that are never paid, for causes obscure and not. The fact that you spent unpaid time (and heartache) doing this and your Vets on the water program, and that you did both outstandingly well is truly first class. Cheers to you, here's hoping at least some of the volunteer work was also a joy!

I'll still be around. I may even post more now.

Luckily almost all my work here was done before and after work or during my 3 breaks during the day. Occasionally on the weekends.

Thankfully the board hasn't cut into my fishing time all these years.

Thanks for the kind words. I always joked to Chris "Thanks for doubling my pay this month, oh yeah 2x0=0". Both had their ups and downs. I'm still volunteering with active duty and vets, just not in save capacity as I once did with PHW. Helping other fishing programs. One actually helps military/veterans and ANYONE who has lost the use of an arm and still want to tie flies and fish. Still a deeply rooted love for me and don't think I'll ever stop helping our military and veterans.

Wait, you mean that moderating a forum involves work? Who'da' thunk? I thought this place runs on cruise control cuz we're all such responsible and respectable types. Well, most of us. And most of the time.

Kidding, and thanks for your efforts Jerry. Hope we still see you around.
