I Know ### NukeWorkers...
« on: Nov 01, 2010, 03:28 »
Okay, stormgoalie made a comment the other day that got me thinking:

... can count on one hand the number of people on this site that I have worked with or met outside of the nuke industry, yet when I joined I still felt welcomed...

How many people on here could I actually walk up to in a plant, say, "Nice to see you again.", and get anything but a blank stare?

I glanced thru the member list and came up with 43 people I have worked with...how about you?

Maybe if we compared them to our Facebook account? A lot less anonymous that way.

6 to 15 is easy, I would have to really look to get into the 16 to 30 or more range. But I think I can!

Oh...just a 'caution':

PLEASE DO NOT 'OUT' ANYONE...we just want a count, NOT names...

Started counting and realized I know 6 now that I could probably walk up to and say hi without getting the blank stare.  May have met more, but I wouldn't count on it :)

I know Marlin, Smart People, PW Hoppe, TENN-1, HouseDad, Dave Warren, Lorrie Henson, Radwraith, Eric_Bartlett, RoadHard, Jr8black3, dinutt, Fishocker77, Daniel Dove, Barry Sapp, Jubal, Lama Grandma, and Lama.... Before online.  Beercourt, DJ@LosAlamos/Clinton, Rain Man, Shawnee Man and Nuclear Nascar first from online then in person. <-- Just gold members... can't list them all.

I know a lot of people that are registered, but don't use the site often...  And I know a lot of people that are registered, but I don't know their screen name.

You know, the site has a 'friend' list option.  Might be easier to use that.

I would want two lists; one for friends I have met in the flesh, and one for friends in online capacity only.

Not saying anyone would sign up below BZ, but I guess it is possible.... :D

I would say 10,000 although it is hard to tell since most do not use their real name.  Being a member of Nukeworker is almost like subscribing to Internet porn. Everyone does it, but no one admits to it.

 So far I have only identified one person. I’m a loner  :( . I’m kinda new to this site and also to the RP tech profession. I’m a Junior RP (I know one of the 10,000 out there right now :P ).

 I hope I get to meet many of you members of this fascinating site along the way  +K .

I have met about 50% of the people that responded to this thread.

It was great to finally meet you.  If you are around Saturday, it's my night off (If I don't get laid off sooner), we can have a drink.

Wow!  I don't know.  Talking about NukeWorker isn't something we normally do in polite company. :P   Oh yeah, that's right, we were taking about Techs.  Never mind! O:)

I think I'm bodycounting tonight...have the car packed and fingers crossed that I get to head to the house!  (If I don't post in the next few days, you'll know I got my west-bound wish! ;) )

I'll buy the first drink on the next outage we cross paths at.  Have a safe winter!

:)




...and thanks again for the stickers...I passed a few out in the shop and will plaster the world with the rest!   :)

Somehow I missed this topic when it was first posted!  Count me in the more than 30 #'s, although, most miss it!

As Mike mentioned earlier, we've known each other for...well.. a long time! ;) As well as most of the others I see on this thread! I guess that probably puts me in the over 30 crowd as well. I feel it necessary here to mention that I also knew the gentleman for whom this site was named. RIP Bob!
