I wanted to start by thanking Formina Sage for all the hard work that it took to put the new Breakroom together.
I've been an Admin for a forum and I know how much is involved so I deeply appreciate what went into putting this together.
Thank you.

The second part came out of one of the introductions where Guest Attendant mentioned that he found the site from this link on Yahoo answers http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...7125016AAL20bR which is how I got here.

I'm just curious. How did you find your way here?

I too would like to thank him as I have also admined many a forum such as this. Thanks for the Hard work Formina Sage!

And I found the original site by accident. I had registered and read a few things but never really posted or contributed. Then one day when I went to go check it out again I noticed it was no longer there. I waited a few more days thinking maybe the server the forum was hosted on had crashed or something, but no.... it was gone... gone for good I thought until... BAM I did a google search for it and found the Yahoo! Answers page containing the link to this site!

Man am I glad I did and I'm glad that I feel more inclined now to get involved! :)

A coworker told me about the other site about a year ago. I didn't join till about a month before it went down. He reads it daily. I asked him to let me know when it was back up and running. He sent me the link to this site in IM and bam, here I am. Funny thing is he registered the same day I did and hasn't started posting.

I would also like to say a huge thank you to Formina Sage!!

I was doing a few searches using key words from our page and I saw Hardlinesmaster at the Topix site, the first familiar "name" in my searches!

Well i was looking up some information on target, just seeing how people handle different areas differently, and i came across this site on accident. really couldn't believe that there were actual employees posting about stuff on target, really helped me realize what to expect around the store and getting to no different areas better and how they perform.

but i think all of us (or most of us) are lucky to come across this site on accident. Makes me feel that if we were all to work together, we would make a bomb ass target store.

I found orig BR on a deal site. Someone posted tm's were complaining about guest misusing coupons. I saved it but didn't really read it until I became a tm.

I found it in yahoo answers.

At first I searched in google thinking it might have been in the news that the site had been taken down for some kind of criminal investigation or something. :D (I sure hope it wasn't.)

I stumbled across the old site by Googling a question about a Target policy. I registered, read around and forgot about it until the other day. Decided to go check it out again and saw it was down and found the link to this on that Yahoo answers page.

When the original site went down, I headed over to Topix & read about this new site!

Thanks for the hard work to get a site up & running. It is very much appreciated!

Awright, you guys! Show yourselves! I can hear you lurking! (the floorboards are creaking)
I'm here, just not as much as the other site. Hardlinesmaster had my personal email and gave me the heads up about this one. I'll be around, I'm just not sure how much I like the idea of this site just up and taking over, using all the same graphics and basic setup of the other one. Don't get me wrong, I thought about making a new forum myself before this one popped up, but I think I would have changed a few things to give respect to the other site's creators. No offense to this site's admin, it just feels a little weird.

Yahoo answers for me too. I personally like the set up being a lot like the other board because I know my way around! Thanks for bringing the board back to life.

I was doing a search for the 9200 PDAs which took me to the thread talking about the new PDAs and various stages of testing of new equipment and then the rest is history. The best place to find out just about everything and ask questions!
