Default Name 3 Thread Starting Posts

The majority of the new forum thread was one of the most professionally discussed threads I have seen here.

Now lets start at the other end of that discussion.
Assume you had your private area.
What would be the first 3 threads each of you would start with?

Production rates to be expected from average painters for different things. Would be an interesting topic I think.

Can GMack be censored ?

no seriously:

best Marketting in this economy

Here's a long time fave of mine - Psych 101: sizing up the customer within the first two minutes of that first meeting and knowing what issues are most important.

If I get my vehicle lettered, do I really HAVE to stop driving like a MASShole ?(sorry, couldn't come up with a third quickly)

Thanks for most of those replies. I thought this thread would be an opportunity; for those that wanted, to lobby for their private area. With enough serious and interesting topics the forum might give it consideration. Otherwise it would just be another section. It is quite simple to overlook those threads you dislike and there is an abundance of useful information here.

With my meager 24 posts I am surely not going to be there but I would begin with:
If you graduated high school today; with all of the interests, knowledge and skills you currently have, what would you do? Listing some of the skills and knowledge will lead to better answers.

After that thread had been answered my next one is:
Why are you not doing that or something near that and if you are good for you.

Since I am not there, I do not have a third thread.

[quote=daArch;80868]Can GMack be censored ?

C'mon Bill, I was just trying to get my post count up so I can come into the new secret room . . . seriously, I haven't been around lately and didn't realize what a big discussion this had become. Sorry about that.

If I were allowed in, I would want to know more about social networking, talk seriously about different ideas for finding and keeping great employees (with an emphasis on finding), and just trade some war stories with some of the great paint contractors here.

No need for even a thought of apology, I know a joke when I see one.

Still, probably better to actually read the thread before commenting in another.
