I've been on many forums in the past and still am for many different things and one thing I find enjoyable is having a thread sticky or page for people to show of pictures of every brand or version of something for example
There will be threads as such
Show off your ______ here
The blanks would be
Peterson

Caminetto

Mario grandi

Rad

Etc
It would be great for new comers and everyone really to get an idea of every pipe maker or brand there is and it will show there styles and techniques off.
Just a thought I think it would be fun to go through pages of nothing bout pictures of beautiful pipes.

Well you wouldn't be obligated to participate Roth so not to worry its solely a picture thread wouldn't even have to be one you personally own maybe one you just found online and want to share.

I like it! What if you just start one thread called "Show Off Your..." That thread could contain links to all other "Show Off Your" threads. Maybe that way if enough people participate and we have at least a few carvers/brands to start with maybe a mod can sticky it? It's a cool idea I personally don't think we see enough tobacco photos what does this blend look like when you opened it. That could just be a single thread. Sounds like a good fun and informative idea :)

Smokeybear: I like it! Of course, living near the Great Smoky Mountains NP, we are accustomed to seeing wonderful, in living color, scenes daily. Ahem!
Great idea. I'm in. And, I'm ugly as a rusted bucket bottom, Roth.

I like that idea smokey!
As for roth, I believe he is some kind of pipe puffing alien! I mean 10,500+ posts, not humanly possible :wink:

ok done so ill start a thread that will highlight the rules and instructions of this and ill also link all the Show off threads to this one thread so that its all organized. if you want me to start a show off thread for a specific pipe (ill also make one for tins and tobacco) then just let me know and ill create it only so we don't end up with duplicates.

Sorry, but I'm against.
With over 500 pipe brands and over 5000 tobacco brands, having a show off thread for each one is just going to litter up this forum. Already, I can't see half the things that were going on yesterday and today because of all these newly created "show-off" threads. :crazy: Please stop this madness.

I enjoy looking at pipes! I am more of a tobacco guy but am eager to learn more about pipes. Keep 'em comin'!

I'm sorry about that hfearly surely I never meant this as an inconvenience for anyone but I understand your frustration I assure you it won't be this way all the time it's only cause we are building the foundations of the thread and once they become part of the norm I'm sure that they will only pop up once in a while which in that time I can only hope that you grow to enjoy them.
Regards,
Andrew

Thanks for your contribution freehand that's all I can say a little optimism would do you good I fully understood the meaning of what you where trying to do but I took it with a grain of salt now it's there as a sticky and your a part of it so get used to it and be proud of it

and mine had more contributions than his one that was mostly him. It is sheer clutter and garbage!
One more thing this seems quite irrelevant being you jacked the title of the "Show Off threads". I thought i was being fair and kind by using yours despite its purpose to mock me instead of incorporating my own to push yours aside. so you still got all the credit to that thread not like i stole it lol.
Anyway it is what it is.

Glad to have you here freehand :roll:

Maybe next time just come out and voice your opinion before you go through the mocking channel first. Last time I checked we are all grown men and women. Obviously it's already a sticky so someone thought it was a good idea and it won't clutter up "your" pristine experience here any longer.

Great idea, I've already seen some great pipes that might not have been posted (or at least not seen by me) otherwise.

smokey, if you are having fun with this then go for it. No one has the right to call your threads clutter and garbage.
Freehand, you are out of line, no one is forcing you to open Smokey's threads.
hfearly, so you have to scroll down an extra couple of seconds, is that really going to diminish your experience here? Smokey is just trying to have some fun, no reason to rain on his parade.
