Just a little tidbit here: getting involved in conversations in the other parts of the forums and showing us that you know your stuff, are willing to share, and are willing to be humbled when someone calls you out or corrects you could keep you in climbers for a long time. You might accidentally learn something in the meantime, and it only costs the time it takes to read and type.I’m still waiting for you to contact me...I’m somewhat new to this forum so I don’t wish to do anything outside of accepted protocols... is there a way I could get in touch with you?

That is a lot of apology. Breathe easy, man. I'm just offering unsolicited advice to someone I don't know.thanks for replying....since I am new to the board, I do not have years of archived material/posts for anyone to review to determine if someone would be willing to do as you suggest b/c you know how "you would get along" based on such material and I would suppose past exchanges archived in the material.
I really wasn't looking for lots of exchange on the board (not that it might not be welcomed at some point in time when I had the time to participate more freely) as I have mentioned I simply lack the time for it at this point. I came here while killing time in a hospital waiting room, saw something about a specific person who might be looking for a job. This person/Poster, according to his brief resume, possessed the types of criteria I am looking for from candidates for a position I need to fill at my company. I made a query regarding the proper way to approach the person so I wouldn't offend anyone or break any protocol om your site.
I never asked anyone to "trust" me...just asked someone who said he was interested to "respond" to me for brief discussion to determine if sincere interest may exist on BOTH sides after some brief interaction, so that then and only then, potential levels of trust could be developed between both parties and a move toward any working relationship could have a chance to occur.
I apologize to all here that I could have possibly upset. The reason I kept asking for protocol info is/was to avoid some unwritten codes I seem to have know broken...I did not know only persons who have been longtime members of this board and have posted continually were welcomed to place information about a potential job in a thread/forum where the site seemed to direct and even welcome such info. I tried to do everything I could to list the info for the person who posted a brief list of skills and certifications without stepping over any line. Then after he indicated interest I was unsure if there was some other way contact was preferred so I asked about that and was politely advised and took the advise of the helpful poster. Then this happened, with no further interaction on this board other than a "thank you" to the member who advised me politely re a private message option.
I have not come here to offend or upset anyone, have not tried to act like anyone's long lost friend, or to pepper the board with lots of blabber in an attempt to get along somehow. I dont have the time to do so now even if I desired to, which I certainly do not. I just wanted to get info to a guy who seemed like he might be interested. I'm sorry if that created some level of distrust, it certainly was never my intention.
If this is a board for only those who actually climb trees and not for those who own companies and employ people who do such dangerous and respected work, I shall exit and apologize for ever intruding where I shouldn't have.
I never intended to ruffle the feathers of even one soul here and sincerely apologize for having done so.
...this isn't facebook. They asked for a username and I was drawing a blank. All the other forums I belong to know me as BetterTrees. I didn't want a tree name on a tree forum. It's not distinguishing at all. I thought "maybe something witty." And then it clicked. Surely something as simple as a handle isn't offensive.Would hope so, but don’t have much time to spend on here and would be very unlikely to have anything I said confused with “witty”
Dude many of us have run a business or are currently running one in the tree industry, that's why we are here. This is an open forum for things like meeting potential employees??? Learning about new gear? Learning what advancements are being made with that gear? Having fun... Maybe seeing how others are tackling their work? Sadly we also discuss the unfortunate part of this work too.Would hope so, but don’t have much time to spend on here and would be very unlikely to have anything I said confused with “witty”
