    no one appears to be coming to the site so i thought i would post something here in the hope that others will join, people like gafftaper and I, have tried to recruit before this with no much luck, so from the bottom of my heart i offer you this good advice, stop being a visitor and get involved in the community. it doesn't matter how old you are or how much experience you have, what matters in that your putting you opinion in on issues of a technical theatre nature.

    so a plea to all you "guests" join controlbooth let's get our members up a little more.

    YES! Do join we know you are there lurking. Wouldn't you rather have a name and a voice? If Hughesie and I can put aside our differences over the metric system and come together as one. Surely you can take 3 minutes and register.

    What do you want us to do record a... HUGHESIE... I've got it! We need to get everyone together and record one of those "We are the world" all star songs to get new people to join Control Booth.

    Ok, now work with me...

    There comes a time when you give up the metric war
    When the world comes together as one.
    There are people lurking here
    and they need to join control booth,
    so they can post too

    Chorus:
    We are the booth
    we are the lamp heads
    we are the ones who make a brighter day so lets start posting

    2nd chorus could go:
    We are the booth
    we are the noise boys
    we are the ones who make it sound ok so lets start posting.

    Help Me Hughesie!! It's a start but it needs work.


    and please join control booth you don't know what you are missing!

    I was going to remain silent but I can't. You two are dipsticks. If this goes any further I'll ... I'll ... words fail me.

    Just doing what we can to make the booth a more friendly place. Van sounds jealous that we don't have a Carp verse YET.

    There comes a time when you give up the metric war
    When the world comes together as one.
    There are people lurking here
    and they need to join control booth,
    so they can post too
    and share their view

    Chorus:
    We are the booth
    we are the lamp heads
    we are the ones who make a brighter day so lets start posting
    and stop your ghosting

    We provide infomation of a technical theme
    some of the questions, are quite obsene
    but we still try and help, it's the controlbooth way
    it helps us sleep better at night
    it's the controlbooth way

    2nd chorus could go:
    We are the booth
    we are the noise boys
    we are the ones who make it sound ok so lets start posting.
    and stop procrastinating and get your words down on computer

    Join controlbooth!

    There's one problem with this thread Hughesie. When we did our last big membership drive the active membership was down in the low 290's if I remember correctly. It was so successful that the current total active membership is 314. We were already being successful!!

    I was being ironic. It didn't turn sour.I dunno, I did my best, got someone to join and now Gafftaper thinks I have Mutiple Personality Disorder and am in fact two people. "What?" "No" "I've told you not to bother me when I'm posting." "You can come out later when we're alone, cos now the computer is watching."
