While I don't get, or agree with LostInTransit's perspective on forum build threads, it seemed he came here with the intention of sharing something we'd like to hear about. We also don't know what all else is happening in LostInTransit's life right now. Let's just keep that in mind.

Good point.  It can't be that easy to go through life with that big a stick up your ass

This is an interesting case of someone finding the right audience but having no idea how to interact with said audience.

So the thread title is kinda apropos?

Question: Will we be keeping this alive, like the Ignore thread?

Maybe Lost in Transit will come around.  I’m afraid there’s a lot more to their story than we’re ever going to know so tough to be too judgmental. I thought it was an interesting thread and was following along.

When I saw that this new thread title was the same as the poster's screen name, I just breezed on by. But once it got to two pages, I figured that I was missing something. I guess I must have been, but I'm not sure what it was, or if I'm even disappointed. 
 

Clearly, it was someone's First Day here.

Man, what happened here? What was the build?? It must've been cool.

Is this going to be like the "can we not hotlink thread" - except - "ye shall not comment on me build thread!" 

For the record please comment on my build threads, it gets lonely when no one interacts....

Less Lost in Transit, more like Lost in Translation. 

Too bad. Pretty sure we will be building this thread into something really not worth reading. Should be fun for a few days though. 

Oh, and in case nobody noticed, we don't really do "rules" very well. Just ask the lady of the house.

Quoted again. 

Some indication of interest is appreciated otherwise I feel like I'm sitting in a corner somewhere mumbling to myself.

What ever No Comment was building must have been cool, we are still talking about it even with out updates.

At this point it deserves a new thread, this one derailed.  New thread for updates, this one for comments, it's the new format.

In reply to akylekoz :

I didn't see what he was building and at this point I could not care less. 

People with that attitude have no place here. Any ridicule they receive is deserved. 

If he starts a new thread you can be damn sure I'll try to be the first to post some inane comment. Perhaps about the color of the sky and how it reflects off his windshield. 

Maybe he should try a blog or one of those videos where he can talk about himself for hours.

I have a feeling that he was using the forum format to try and drum up donations or support for his project, what with the calling vendors and no vendors willing to work with him comments. 

It was sure to be an interesting story about turning aminivan into a camper, with a fairly decent writing style. But, not now. Not with the way he went completely out there. No odea what that was about,  and in the vaccum of no explanation or discussion, cant really care. We are left to our own interpretation of his/her reasoning. 

 

That being said, i LOVE commentary on my buold threads and random posts. Helps me see the world/problem/project/idea from a different angle. And here, that angle carries experience and wisdom. That angle should be considered as a valuable input. 

Thank you all for being my homies.

In reply to Toyman01 + Sized and :

Agreed. I post to GRM because clever people will help me when I'm working through something and are interested in the silly things I do, I think most of us are the same in that even with some disagreeing here and there.... If he wants a blog, he should just make a blog? Kinda crazy to come on a message board and tell everyone to shut up and sit tight.
