JoeDios Recall
 
The lack of activity on JoeDios is disappointing. I admit Iíve been a slacker the last couple years. Even though I wasnít active, Iíd visit the site almost daily to see everyoneís photos. GI Joe and JoeDios brings a little joy into my life, Iíd hate to see it die.

Iíd like to encourage everyone to get back into posting on JoeDios. If youíre in contact with other members, invite them back.

I know a lot of you are using Instagram, or whatever, but you can post your pics on JoeDios as well. Got old photos you havenít posted here? Post those too.

All it takes to bring JoeDios back to itís former glory, is for us to post.

I comment on pictures from time to time. As for posting, I've really got to upgrade my technology. Old camera and computer.

Lava Boss 03-21-2020 07:07 PM

My camera isn't great, but to be honest I just don't have that much interest in GI JOE. I think about taking photos sometimes but cannot think of anything to do with GI JOE.

Yeah, my camera is about fifteen years old. The auto focus doesnít work very well.

Wifey and I just moved into a larger place with my own room for toys and crafting. I really plan on getting back into the swing of things. I have been building models and customizing lots of various items. I cant wait to show them off.

Looking forward to it. I went through your archives a few days ago, so many great custom setups.

JoeDios' most prolific commentator keeping up the good fight.

Love posting here. Was inactive since 2013 but I personally like the gallery here and the like-minded people. I get that with Facebook as well but you get so many pics at once. It kinda desensitize you. I don't do Instagram because I have no celphone and Flickr, just don't feel like joining.

Yeah, the members here have been a lot of fun to share the hobby with. Only wish we could get more of them to return.

JoeDios is the best option for me. Facebook shrinks and compresses your photos. I have no interest at looking at badly cropped photos on tiny little screens, with Instagram. I used to like Flickr but they locked me out of my account, I assume because of inactivity.

Yeah, they do. Sucks bigtime.

Lava Boss 03-27-2020 11:59 AM

I fear Flickr is on its way to becoming a pay site since Smugmug took over.

Instagram always lowers the quality of my photos for some reason,maybe it's their size or that I'm using a PC not a moble device. It's frustrating.

ThinkTank 03-27-2020 12:10 PM

I haven't been on Facebook since 2017. I recommend disconnecting from it as soon as you can. I haven't been on Flickr for a while. I like that a lot of people were there posting, but it can be overwhelming with all the groups and galleries and various themes that compete for my time. It also seems that Flickr is where a lot of JD people went after the dust-up a few years ago, but they don't seem to be active anymore. Now would be a good time to get back into it, especially if you are sequestered at home, like me.



RTG- if you are out there, come back.

Social media expects people to be viewing everything on their little phone screens, plus shrinking and compressing photos saves bandwidth for them. They donít care about quality.

Iím locked out of my account, but if anyone else is using Flickr, post a photo there and add a link to JoeDios, invite everyone to return.

I didn't know

ThinkTank 03-28-2020 08:15 PM

i actually logged into Flickr today and requested to get in the Outrider group. I have a handful of O-rings and lots of vehicles.

A lot of great old JoeDios members in that group.

I am planning on binging the show for inspiration. I stopped for a while. I had started to print a bunch of stuff that was going to be with zombie lab and cobra figures. Then the printer broke down. I just need to fix the printer then back in business on that dio.

Hello All,
Hope everybody is safe at home with your families and taking all necessary precautions.

I am going to try and post more pictures of my collections, but I only have my phone camera for that. I and also have to finish overdue work from the office; thankfully I can do that from home.

Best regards.

Yo Joe!

Work is interfering with my Joe time too. I had a shot done a couple days ago but haven't had the time to add the special effects.

Recently watched Pyramid of Darkness and also Resolute.

Michael Mercy has a YouTube video from February where he and 3 or 4 other guys watch Resolute and comment to each other as it goes. Occasionally they put up a new still frame to make sure you are close to where they are.

So I had Resolute going with the sound down, and then listened to them on YouTube.

Not the same as watching with a friend, but close enough during our current times.

Might give it a try some time, but talking during the movie could drive me crazy.

I loved Resolute, best movie/TV version of GI Joe. I didn't get some of the mythos changes, but the animation and character designs made up for it.

selvaland 04-10-2020 01:07 PM

Hi everybody! Glad to read all the posts!
Very happy there's some activity back here!
Have always loved to post and comment here, joedios just have his place in my life!

Dirtbag 11-12-2021 02:55 AM

Hello everyone.

It has been a while since last time I posted. Hope everyone is safe and well. Slowly but surely getting back into Joe.

Glad I was able to log in to my old account.

ThinkTank 11-22-2021 05:45 PM

Iíve been active on Instagram and Twitter. Iím cross posting some here, but not much go joe. You can always view Instagram on your desktop monitor, the pictures are the same as far as I can tell. My website is being updated and changed to reflect the world building Iím working on.

Lightning LA 08-10-2023 05:53 PM

It's good to see some familiar names from the glory days, in the past week I've got my Joes out of storage. And I have that spark to get my Joe Room finally setup, and start taking pictures again. It's definitely sad to see the lack of posts on here, but every new post helps. I know this was the spot from 2005 to around 2012, and the Guy who 1st introduced & got me interested into taking pictures with my Joes was a member here. I consider him one of if not the best to ever take pictures with Joes, and he was only O-Ring, just like me. He went by Outrider, but those who were lucky enough to have him as a Friend knew him as Craig. So if any of you newer members want to see some really amazing pics look him up on here, and check out his threads. He was a master at weathering Vehicles and he made a thread on that. Well I hope to see more of you Guys. Yo Joe!
