Amazing what you find out from profile diving - Page 2

post #16 of 30
I actually try to read a profile for every thread I read. I especially like when people say a bit about themselves, instead of just the Headphone stash; with that, I have to clean up cat hair and watch the Jets hopefully win; mine is updated...

profiles are interesting, and they let you know where the person posting is coming from. Personally I can't understand lurkers, head-fi is such a welcoming and friendly forum its hard to believe anyone would think they have nothing useful or valid to contribute. If nothing else, at least come and chat in the lounge!

There are quite a few of us, I'm sure, that are not bitten by the headfi bug. I joined in late 2003. A few months after that I bought my first and only pair of headfi cans. I do lurk and comment on the occassion when I see newcomers asking for help.

I've done very well to be able to lurk and post(albeit rarely these days) and not feel the urge to upgrade. I consider myself blessed.

I did sell my previous cans of yore. I am currently using my bros SA5000s that he has not had use for.

I get particularly anoyed when members create threads and then isntead of updating the first post with new information, they just keep posting one-line-posts. There is one particular member, who speaks a lot about portable amps that does this all the time, it really pixxxx me off!

There is always the "ignore list".

LOL, I'm sure there are many people with very old profiles. But this thread is a good reminder to update.

i gave up updating my profile since it changes every 2 seconds lol - now i just put the up to date stuff in my sig and let the more recent items that i abandoned fall into the pit.

I update mine every know and then however I sort of just create (or destroy) things on a whim so I have the same approach to my profile, update it every know and then when whatever info in their is set in stone rather than partially done or a potential purchase.

I for one have a small post count but I've visited here daily since my join date. I find I enjoy just reading the forums especially member's lounge. Being new to the headphone scene I find myself unable to provide much assistance to anyone, so the brunt of my time goes into browsing the members lounge and commenting once in awhile.

I like reading profiles. I've been around here a while so it's especially fun to check in on people who I saw join and ask about "the best amp for my Grado SR-60?", compared to the four pages of gear they show now.

I put my up-to-date information in my sig as I never really knew what to put in my profile. I should really update my sig so it only shows what I have got now and let the older stuff slide away into my profile instead.

Laziness is the motor of new and improved technology.

But you're right, you just reminded me to put something in my profile.
