    Default life span on ei.

    Hey just wondering if there is an average life span of an EI forum member.

    People come and go all the time but whats the average staying time.
    How long does it take for them to get pissed off and say feck i'm out of here.
    Who is here the longest aswell.

    It depends on what people get from here . One thing that helps is a thick skin .lol doc
    Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
    People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do .: doc

    You bring that up more than I did. And for the record I never mentioned price, only the brackets they are put in

    Lie expectancy seems to relate to whether a Mod has it in for you!

    Why would a mod have it in for you?

    Well as for me, I've been on for more than 4 years now, though my number of posts may reflect the fact that I don't spend large amounts of time posting on the forum. I probably had less than a dozen posts in my first year here, and I honestly avoided posting (though I was a prolific reader of the posts/forum) as there were quite a few bullies and trolls back in the old days, before there were mods. I'd picked up the posting right around the time when mods came in, and a few of the old bullies of legend were banned.

    I suppose I've also mostly restricted myself to posting when I have something on my mind, or when I feel I have something relevant to add to a conversation. I'll also post occasionally on the odd 'Congrats' thread, but not always.

    For me, I think the biggest thing that has keet me from getting put off and quitting the site is AVOIDING ARGUMENTS; I often try to read through a topic/issue that's under heated debate to understand the argument, but do my absolute best to NOT GET INVOLVED. I keep my opinions on all that stuff to myself, and that way you don't make any enemies. I'd probably disappear from posting very quickly as well if I had people jumping all over anything/everything I said on any topic, just because they're upset with me about something else I did/said about another issue.

    So my advice? Keep it civil, avoid arguments as best you can, or at least keep it from getting personal if a difference of opinion does arise. Show respect for the others on the site, and most of them will show you the same respect back.
