What prompted you to join this site and this local forum in particular?


Personally, I joined when development in PG was taking off before the Great Recession and the bottom fell out. I was involved in local development meetings, was a contributor to Rethink College Park, and participated in other development-focused forums. I came to this site for two reasons. The first was to glean inside information on certain projects that I couldn't get through the media. The second reason was to share information about certain development projects and initiatives.

I joined to offer relocation advice, and provide a Western Maryland perspective on statewide discussions that is sorely lacking sometimes.

I like reading the local stories and keeping up with local events. I joined to get relocation advice many moons ago... and when I move, I often read this board about areas and ask questions. You have to filter through the BS, but there are some useful comments on here.

I originally joined to check out some interesting local news of both PG and the DC area in general. As a matter of fact, I spend my time in other threads on CD as well. Aside from the DC and PG/Suburban Maryland threads, I also hangout in the City vs. City, General U.S., NYC, Baltimore, World, Video Games, Pro-Football, LA, and Travel forums.

Because someone clued me that a poster was spreading bull**** about my location. He really looked like a developer tool with the misinformation (polite way of phrasing it) he was posting about plans and even the uses of the buildings he showed in the photos.

There was a lot of interesting topics, and I thought I could add to the discussion. I knpow a lot about this area and like to help. I hate the constant arguments on race, though, and try to avoid those threads.

I joined to really give advice on relocating. I am somewhat rare in the fact that I have lived, worked, and/or gone to school/college in Maryland, DC and Virginia. I feel like I have enough of a feel of each area that I can point people in the right place. I also feel strongly about the varying opinions of PG. I dislike people who speak negative erroneous information about PG but I equally detest people who ignore constructive criticism and spend time trying to mislead others by exaggerating facts. Both are bad so I like bringing a balance. I also like talking about sports and politics.

I joined because I was going to move. It has been a great tool to check out different areas all over the US and the world. Since I joined I have met amazing people, have traveled to all 50 states to check out recommendations, and have - actually - increased my appreciation for where I live. After hundreds of thousands of miles traveling all over the place, it turns out home sweet home is the best place for me.

So I joined to find a way outta here. I stayed on the site because there are some amazing, wonderful, caring, helpful and delightful people in this little CD village. I appreciate the care and concern shown by the Moderators who keep comments from deteriorating into the kind of nastiness you see on many other forums (not to mention places like youtube and others...) I much prefer CD to Facebook, which is often just a brag-fest. The majority of the CD peeps really do care and give great information and advice on everything from what to have for dinner tonight to where to find things in your city or online. Vacation trips can be scheduled just by asking a question in the forum of your choice. IMHO it's a gem and I'm happy I stumbled onto it.

And no - I'm not a Mod and I didn't get paid to post this. I just appreciate a good communication tool/social site when I see it.

I joined because I moved from the area (Calvert County) and like to keep up with the region.
