    I joined my first visit but didn't get chatty for close to a year. I'm usually just a lurker on sites but this place is so friendly I just couldn't keep my mouth shut! I've been a member of Pattern Review since probably 2003 or 2004 and only have a couple hundred posts there in all the years I've been a member.

    I lurked for at least a year and I'm not sure why I didn't join sooner. I finally joined when I just had to share some information on featherweights. I enjoy being inspired daily by the wonderful quilts I see and appreciate all of the good quilting tips.

    Not sure if I joined the first day, or a day or two later. I guess you could say I jumped right in. I am a bit embarassed to say that I never did an intro post either, but I did fill out some info on my profile page. That should count too, right? I just have to say , I love this forum and have been seriously neglecting my Facebook account since I found this wonderful place!

    I lurked for a few months before joining. Then, I wondered why I waited so long. The people on here are fantastic and very helpful. So glad I took the plunge.

    I joined after about 2-3 months. I have noticed that most of you that have responded to the question are 'regular here'. How long does it take to get that status or is it by how much you particpate in posting or responding to other posts?

    By the way this is a great site with a whole lotta helpful and caring people! I love it.

    Did not lurk,as I could see that the group was welcoming, sharing and considerate and not the least hostile toward beginners who need to be encouraged.This board is a good promotion for the craft.

    I lurked for several month but got frustrated that I couldn't respond so I decided to bite the bullet and join and haven't regretted it ever since. I am not a "joiner" by nature. I really have to sit and watch and learn what is going on first. I don't jump in and get both feet wet first before testing the waters.

    I waited about 6 months. It seemed that everyone was beyond my skill level. I didn't have any friends that quilted so I figured that I would take the plunge and share with other quilters. I still haven't figured how to post pictures yet. But I sure am glad that I joined.

    I joined the first day I found the site. I was looking for something (can't remember what) but this site had the answer, and I've been here ever since. And found waaaaaayyyy more than I ever thought was possible. I love this site.
