"One day" ? What are you waiting for ? אם לא עכשיו אימתי

I figure it takes time to become part of this community in any meaningful way.  Based on my reading, I see many of the same people posting over multiple threads, understanding each others history and nuances.  They probably have met face to face many times as well.  As of now, I am a guest who wants to understand where he can fit in and contribute. 

Considering how much many of the people seem to know about MS, I'm not sure when I should speak up.  I enjoy learning, and enjoy teaching.  But, what can I teach to those who know so much more?  Things I haven't even considered before.

Just start posting whatever you think all over the place.  That's what everyone else does and it works fine.

Welcome.

Even if what think that what you want to say was already said, it can always be said again. Also, sometimes by someone else they can say one thing that they do or did that to you seems tiny and not important but in retrospect, it can be the missing piece to completing the puzzle.

One again, welcome.

PS. Remember, it's always easy to go into the pool in the shallow end and learn how to swim first. Don't just dive into the deep end without learning, it will hurt.

I've been MSing since 2011.  Seen lots of things over that time and learned a lot more by reading forums such as fatwallet, dansdeals, flyertalk, and more recently saverocity, among many others.  I've never been to a miles/points event though, but definitely want to change that.   I've also enjoyed meeting MSers while I'm out and about, and developing friendships with them.  It's fascinating hearing someone talk about MS 10-15 years ago.  It's something I hope I will continue to be privileged to be a part of

Teach when you can as we all are here to learn.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but Dan, can you send the emails of the deals earlier? By the time I get them it is always too late.

Thanks. Awesome site btw. I really like the kiddush hashem you made when you wore your yarmulka on the field of the world series game it was so special to see a yid like that.
