how can we help each other? The Warpath Community Center
 
eventually it would be very cool if we could figure out ways that we could help each other, either by information, services, discounts, etc that we can offer each other.. and knowing who contains/offers these things

my proposal is that we mention our jobs/careers, specialties, hookups (if comfortable), etc and we figure out our network of expertise around the site

being as that we're all united by a common cause having nothing to do with who we are by life choices we should have a very broad base of fans.. everything from ditch diggers to lawyers (not to elevate or make light of any career) that can help each other

for example.. I've worked retail, alternative health, etc

some key interests/knowledge that I hold happen to be health and nutrition, of course my work, computing, etc.. I can expand on actual expertise, experience, etc

say SkinsFan23 (fictional user, I think?) is a roofer, we have a list of users/specialties and when someone has a roof leak he can look to that guy for helping points or even a service referral

what do you guys think? I've done this elsewhere and been able to hook people up with product discounts, advice, etc and it's a great resource that ties the community together

Lol, now all the salary cap stuff makes more sense. Funny though, if I had actually stopped to think about it I would have pegged you as an accountant.

Great start schneed, sounds like you're quite analytical, which isn't a great surprise, but the depth of it is nice

Finding sites has always been helpful to me.

VA Gun Trader has armed me on the cheap. Thanks

If you need an ally to fight the NWO, I'll do what I can.

I like the idea of this thread. I'll play.

My education background is business administration. I worked as a mortgage broker for a while, so I know a lot about the finance side of real estate. I no longer work in the industry, but I know lots of people who do. Anyone looking for an honest, knowledgeable mortgage consultant, I know plenty of people. Also, I have a few realtors in the DC area that I'm close with. Basically, if you're looking to purchase or refinance, I can help out for sure.

Currently I'm the beverage director for a restaurant group here in the DC area. If you want a reservation and killer service at 4 of DC's top 100 restaurants, I can help you there. However, I'm not willing to openly discuss what specific restaurants I work for, so PM me if you're interested there.

I also have a lot of experience with exercise and nutrition. I'm a bonafide gym rat. Also, my fiancee has multiple personal training certifications and has a degree in applied physiology and kinesiology. So anyone who wants any advice on workouts or nutrition tips, I'm happy to help you out.

Oh, and I'm a Florida Gator, so if you need any advice on kicking the crap out of Tennessee or Florida State, I'm your guy. :)

This is like the sober version of Angry's Pay It Forward idea I take it.

When it comes time to buy a home, I'll be asking a lot of questions to many of you here

to bad this didn't come out when I worked in Marriott Revenue Mgmt, I use to be able to get hotel rooms for $29 a night for myself and friends and family.

Cool thread.

I'm a network administrator for Mars, Inc. (M&Ms, Snickers, etc) so I'm happy to help with any IT related issues. Also get candy hookups from time to time, so there's that... In a past life I was a broadcast journalist, but gave it up due to being absolutely miserable. That said, I have strong editing/proofreading skills, so if anyone needs a second set of eyes, hit me up.

I'm currently a server admin and support specialist here, so any computer questions, I'm glad to answer.

Have a BA in Graphic Design, but Summo is waaaaaaaaaay better than me, but I can still answer questions.

Also have a decent amount of car knowledge, so I can answer simple to intermediate car questions.

Wow. I'd love to know what working at Mars, Inc. must be like. Heard it's pretty secretive inside those walls. Have you ever read this book? It's one of my favorites

Not to be confused with this great book
