    Hey everyone. This is my first post here since I have only just now registered. I hope this place is welcoming. I do know a couple of users here but I'll wait on saying who until I get a better feel of this place.

    A little about me: I live in north Alabama and work in the Huntsville area. I work on computers for a living but I mow a few yards on the side for extra $$. I love to fish and fortunately, two of the yards I mow on the side are lake front homes on Lake Guntersville. I've caught some really nice catfish this spring.

    Things to do:

    1. Get comfortable with the setup here.
    2. Learn how to alter my profile to add things like an avatar and signature.
    3. Get to know folks here.

      Welcome! I have most of my family in Huntsville. Also fish Smith Lake when I can.

        Welcome Nalt!
        Take most of the yahoos on this site with a grain of salt & learn to read between the lines for an abundance of sarcasm from nearly everyone here.
        Get an avatar quick or Ox, the resident bovine potentate, will give you one that you’ll probably not like!

          This.

          Welcome @Nalt The unofficial rules are pretty simple: no whining about bad ratings and, um, that’s pretty much it.

            Thanks for the advice itsgr82bag8r and GBM. I'll look into doing that sometime over the next few days. I used to be part of the GatorSports.com message board back in the 2008-2009 time when Bama and UF played back-to-back SEC championship games. Those were some really good ones... :thumbup:

                  Lol. Our local minor League baseball team is the Rocket City Trash Pandas. Seriously, that's a true story... Sometimes you just have to go with the roll because you just can't make this stuff up... smh...

                    I felt like this was awfully damn close to whining about ratings. Didn't want to risk it.

                      Welcome Nalt! Hope you enjoy your membership. There’s a great bunch of folks to bandy words with, commiserate, and occasionally ignore. Kind of a cross between Cheers and the Long Branch in Dodge City. As long as you aren’t into looting and pillaging / peaceful protesting you’ll have a ball. Good to have you join.

                                    Welcome to the board...I also was on the GS board at the same time...do not go to the PF if you are not a Trump supporter/conservative/religious nut as it is an orange man circle jerk. Other than that, the board is good. And like another poster wrote, do not complain about the dislikes. Badge of honor.

                                      Welcome @Nalt as @itsgr82bag8r said, there’s a ton of sarcasm with posters but it really depends on which forum you’re in. That’s the beauty of this place. Takes newcomers some time to identify that with reading posts but overtime, if you make it and I know you will, it becomes very obvious.

                                        Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
