This is, obviously, not a Poll thread.

Assuming you visit at least somewhat regularly, Why do you come back to visit the Elsmar Cove forum?

I visit the Cove because I am addicted to it. :D

I visit again and again for technical information - to provide answers to various queries, moderate forums and in turn learn new things myself.

I visit because the site has lots of useful information and tips. It's a minefield of information that i can sit and go through at my own place:)

As well as a place where I feel I have some friends around the world, I like the opportunity to share opinions and hear other people's points of view on subjects. I also get up to date information on topics such as updated standards and I like to think that I can offer support to others who are not as experienced in creating and implementing management systems.

I like the Cove because it´s the first virtual place that I´ve found that´s not a "Give me ...Give me..." or "can someone send me a copy...". The discussions are fantastic, the input, the knowledge, the sharing of experiences and information are the best I´ve found !

Congrats on the initiative and the Mods for keeping the Cove going ! :applause:

I regularly visit due to the vast experience & helpfulness of many of the members here - I try to add my own value as well - but the forum has been of no end of help to me and there are many other conversations I've seen that have widened my "quality horizons" beyond my current field (medical devices).

Also the coffee break section does have some thought provoking threads & a good few laughs as well for when I'm ready to hang to rope from the rafters in the office! :bonk:

I enjoy helping people.
I learn something about quality/ business every time I visit.
I learn there are more ways to view anything, than just my own.

In addition to opinions already given, The Cove is great place to road test your ideas/opinions/systems/processes etc. Also it is a source of comfort and re-assurance, coz it's a lonely place out there....

I joined a long time ago and spent some regular time here; even contributed $$$ long ago (sorry Marc but I will again) then I got really busy and only came back once in a while. But recently I have found my bearings and have returned (to some disappointment I am sure) but seriously: I find this a great source of information, helpful insight, and generally very good conversations. I tell many of my friends and counterparts in quality about this site and invite them to join to see the wealth of information here and to contribute to the discussions.

I enjoy discussing things with people and I have taken advantage of the blog a few times. This has to be a tremendous job controlling and monitoring all of this and the big cheese and the other moderators have done an outstanding job!

If you can't find an answer to your question here at the Cove then you won't find it anywhere...:bigwave:...people are generous with their assistance and tolerant of people not wanting to do their own work...looking for a free-be form or procedure is one disappointing aspect but it does maybe get people interested in returning.

I am also a PC gamer and use Teamspeak and my own website to talk with people all over the world; there is nothing better than meeting people with common interests (at least professionally) and getting to know a bit about them and differing opinions on topics. This site offers much more to people than just technical information and templates or files; it offers a chance to participate in a global community; discussing anything and everything (within reason)…

I keep coming back because of the topics, the people, and the conversations...

Other than that; Marc might just hunt me down and I can't have that...:sarcasm:
