    This will work a lot better if you sign up and share your thoughts.

    Don't be afraid.

    Let me guess. 1500 people trying to read and learn about bees and less than 100 or so with widely differing levels of experience talking. Hmmmmmm, Check out the recent postings for clues. I wouldn't blame many for being a bit apprehensive. Come on aboard folks. Don't let a NYC teachers one season of experience with one Weaver queen continue to be the dominant subject on this forum. There must be more experiences out there. Please?

    Anyone want to make a prediction of when the forum hits 1,000,000 posts?

    For those reading that have not registered, there are actual benefits to reading after registering, even if you never make a post.

    The forum software can keep track of what point in each thread you have already looked at, and can take you to the point where new posts are. But that system only works if you have created an account.

    And for those who are not quite sure what this thread is all about, see the What's Going On statistics at the bottom of this page:

    You're being very critical of me Mr. 'Yellow Dent #2 Corn'.

    Don't think for a second that I'll give you the moral high ground.

    It won't happen in this lifetime.

    Hey I like WLC, especially the new version who seems to have a bit lighter tone and a better sense of humor. I was attempting some humor in pointing out the obvious. Was I factually incorrect about something? He admits to being a teacher (or at least to having students), he has had one Beeweaver queen for one year, and it is perhaps the most famous queen on Beesource. That at least gives me the factual high ground, right?

    Jim:

    There's nothing wrong with running a business.

    However, I'm also a Biologist who has done genomics work on the bees I've had.

    We are not doing this for the same reasons.

    In reality, I've helped students of many levels, including graduate/doctoral students, achieve their goals.

    I've done more good, out of altruism, than you have.

    So, where do you fit in here?

    Sometimes I'm out working the bees. Sometimes I don't think I have much to add to the discussion. Sometimes someone already posted what I was thinking. Just cause these crazy thoughts are rolling around in my head don't mean they have to come out on the keyboard.

    Hard to believe that there are still actually 1000 plus beekeepers finding out how hard it is to post on Beesource with their Commodore 64s.
    I have exactly ONE hive more than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond question.

    A lot of us just dont have time; also I figure the search function will bring up ground that has already been covered so why post again and again? Any curveballs will get covered by Michael Bush et al.There is a wealth of real info here, but also some inexperienced beeks who chime in with their two cents. If you are a newbee you may find it very hard to tell the difference. Stick with Bush and you will probably be ok...

    Sounds to me like a dose of mine is bigger than yours syndrome

    Real biologists have qualifications.
    44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
