The last Admin post is almost 4 yrs old? What is going on at SS?
If it weren't for JPG, this would be a absentee ghost website.

Perhaps if you looked in the right place you would find that the last post was Dec. 9, 2017. By my count that is not all that long ago.

It would also be interesting to know why you expect admin to be posting all the time...... perhaps if you look at the past history you can notice the job function.

This forum is provided by Shopsmith for users to form a community, and to help each other. I am thankful that they do. :) Admin does not usually intervene unless things get unruly, or there is a problem with software, or to deal with SPAM after it has been flagged by a member (they have been getting behind on this one recently).

I'm sorry but you are dead wrong. Admin is very active. Is this what the media is calling Fake News these days.

And... if you look more carefully, they were active today, opposed to the 26th as stated.

The screen shot I took earlier and posted says the 26th, apparently they checked in after that, ;)

Just proves that they are a presence here, but only intervene when required. :cool: :D

The one you posted shows Admin Last Active on the 26th in the 28th post you made viewtopic.php?p=247470#p247470

I was commenting that Admin was there on the 28th, reading comments which is why it states Admin's Last Visit was the 28th, the date of your post.

The Last Active (means the last time they posted something somewhere in a forum) was the 26th, but they were there reading on the 28th.

I understand they are a small company on the basis of number of employees, and that a number of seasoned employees have retired. There is a learning curve, but they are committed in to doing the very best they can to serve us.

I chatted with Robert Folkerth last month via email, and in a couple of weeks will be in his office in Dayton to visit. I will post an update on my visit afterward.

Actually the part you have circled is in the header and it is referring to MY last visit on that day. And I don't think it's accurate because it is currently saying my last visit was 05:00 May 2. (today) and I was working then. I suspect it is because I have the board set to keep me logged in, so the board software just updates it once a day for housekeeping.

Last active means the last time a member was logged in.

To find the last time a member actually posted, on their profile page click on search user's posts and it will the first one on the list. (the wording and formating may differ depending on what Board Style you are using)

I can certainly understand that it takes time for new employees to get fully up to speed. One of my first jobs was at a small auto parts warehouse, when I started the manager told me it would take a year to fully learn the job, being young I didn't think it would take that long, but at the end of the year I knew he was right.

I do appreciate the efforts the Folkerth family has and continues to make to keep the Shopsmith line viable, my post was to refute the original posters erroneous claim that admin had not been active in four years, which the regulars here know was not true.

I also appreciate the many things that you do for our Shopsmith community and hope you have a wonderful visit to the factory. I will be looking forward to your report. :)

All the best.
