I have to agree with Phil. When I first started visiting this site, I mostly read, but did post a few questions here and there. But what I found out is that I am passionate about what I do professionally, and that has driven me to be more active on this site. And I believe that is the same for the other "heavy hitters" on this site.

Passion for thier profession, and a desire to help others to be as passionate for thiers. As you learn more about how to use SQL Server to its full potential, the more engaged you become in both your career (profession) and its community.

Cool

I agree with Phil and Lynn. I started out as a reader/learner and as I read more posts and realized I could help I did. Now I do it because I want people to understand how and why SQL Server works the way it does, why I think it is a great product, and why there is always a reason to do things the best way.

Another natural outflow of participation in the forums is the desire to contribute to the community via articles, scripts, and editorials. Many times these flow from seeing the same questions/errors over and over so you KNOW there is a misunderstanding of the issue and want to help correct that.

I started posting on this forum because I wanted to improve my own SQL skills, and trying to figure out other people's problems seemed like a good way to do that.

I think it worked.

You know, I work for a sole proprietor and am the only employee so, it's only me and my boss. I hardly ever see him because I am always out helping the clients and where I go I am the only programmer so I don't have someone to talk to whenever I had some great solutions or successes in SQL or other programming platforms. Even no one in my family is in IT exept for one brother whom I hardly ever see. What I'm trying to say is SCC is a place where I can share my successes by writing posts or articles and I gives me great pleasure. I enjoy reading and posting here.Smooooth Smooooth Smooooth

As one of those "wallflowers" I have to agree with Phil. I have enjoyed reading the newsletter and various articles for over 5 years, but only answered about 3 user problems (usually because someone gets there before me on the ones I can answer!). I also really enjoy the non SQL editorials, they help me avoid becoming narrowminded.

Keep up the good work SSC, you certainly make my world a better place.

I agree with all the wonderful things said about SSC.. it could not be more true.

How ever i hv seen a couple of wall flowers who joined long time back, posted/answered a couple of questions and then whoop disappeared.!!! . It bothers me a bit when some people try to use this site to get their homework done or ask questions without themselves trying a bit (especially interview questions) .

All said and done SSC ROCKS...
