    Default Cockytalk Resource list

    Maybe an idea for a stickied thread. Here is the premise

    There is a vast amount of posters with resources of information. I know that usually threads start out with "Any Legal Advice Appreciated" or "Does anyone know...", so I thought if there was a database of volunteers that might be willing to let people know that they have a well rounded experience in that field (not some article they read off the internet to make them sound like an expert), it might be helpful.

    For example, there might be a lawyer or two on here that could help shed light on legal issues.

    LegalCock=attorney
    JudicialCocky=attorney

    Of course, if someone did not wish to be on the list, that's cool too.

    Thoughts???

    We had a thread like that awhile back, where everyone listed what they did. I've recently moved into corporate recruiting, so I wouldn't mind knowing who does what on here. I might need someone sometime.

    I like the idea. It's kind of like reddit but much smaller.

    I volunteer to (attempt to) answer alcohol questions and state laws pertaining to alcohol.

    I really like the concept, but I'll be curious how this is generally received. I think there could be a problem with people being bombarded with requests for free information or services even though the experts' livelihoods are based on that field. For example, I think we all know Cola Cock is in the graphic arts field in some way, and I've seen him get slammed with requests for mock-ups, revisions, etc. of lots of different things. I guess it's the old idea of, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free," type of thing. But, as you said, people can choose not to identify their fields of expertise.

    this is kind of a similar theme to cacks thread stickied at the top of the forum...



    To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

    I do IT work for a living and have done so professionally for a little over 4 years. I don't mind a question or two here and there.

    I teach physical education, and coach high school wrestling. I also have an extensive knowledge of snakes, and have experience catching venomous snakes to relocate.

    I think Cack's is more for networking. This would be more like, "Hey Cocky0, my computer is showing this error message that say blah blah blah. What does that mean?" or "Hey GS, I need to buy a gift for my boss and he drinks Scotch. Suggestions?" That kind of stuff.

    Not really a master of one thing, but very knowledgeable at plenty.

    Outdoor Power Equipment suggestions, Guitars/accessories/etc, walking concierge for Clemson, Myrtle Beach, and Anderson (I can tell you where to go, exactly how to get there, and what to expect... I'm there enough), distilled spirits (recommendations, recipes, about, etc), Mustangs (questions, mods, how-to, etc), Braves baseball (history, current, stadium facts, etc), just to name a few.

    Yes. That is what I meant.

    Feel bad for anyone who is a doctor or lawyer. I can attest first hand as I will be out on the golf course with my dad who is a doctor, we will have people join us, or join a group. Inevitably they will ask what he does, and then 10 minutes later its "hey doc, I have this pain in _______, what should I do?" He tries to be polite about it but I know he hates it.


    That being said, I work in healthcare finance consulting. I know enough about the Obamacare to scare people, I have read and re-read the regulations surrounding the ACA probably 6 times. And I don't go into the Political Forum (mostly because I am a registered democrat, and I know about all yall, lol). I work mainly with hospitals and travel extensively in the US for work so I tend to know about business traveling.

    So most people will say, "and what exactly then do you do?"

    I work for state government in Procurement, specifically IT Procurement. I manage the state's IT Temporary Staff Augmentation contract, and also handled procurements for agencies that are over their authority limit (typically $50,000).

    I helped purchase the control room equipment for the beast board for USC for example.

    I'm a certified Personal Trainer. I also have a lot of knowledge on nutrition. I know Gaichon is as well. There are alot of workout threads that pop up and I try to contribute but I usually end up posting alot of the same info over and over.

    I love helping others and don't mind sharing info. I've thought about having a business to do nutrition counseling and workouts online. Kinda like a life coach.

    Good list so far. In the next few days, I'm going to try and compile an organized list and post it
