Well, I quite like my "nameless pieces of hacked wood" hanging up. But then, I have never been one of those purists who will only have something rare and collectable. If I like it, I like it. I'm starting to feel that those of us are newer to the forum aren't quite good enough for the cool kids since we have stuff that wasn't bought "in the wild" or is mass-produce tourist stuff made in the Philippines. Not just this particular thread, but lots of other threads as well where newer members are put down. The common complaint is that TC is slow because of the newbies posting threads on existing topics and all the old members are being driven away. Maybe it's because the newbies are often treated like red-headed step children that we eventually go away before we had a chance to really get to know people and the culture of the forum.



I agree 100%
And that's why I will just keep lurking and not post.


Oh shit....

Stick around, some of us here like redheads...



And don't take things too personally, you need to be thick skinned just like a Tiki !!

But do try to take something positive away when long time Tikiphiles chime in. It's not "Cool Kid" snobbery but rather high Tiki standards cultivated over time.

The difference is that we are not trying to keep ourselves "special", but that we are trying to keep Tiki special.
