    I’m not saying that everyone who has a massive collection is a hoarder. I myself have a lot of Ts. I’m just saying that the amount of Ts a person has is not a measure of how good they are in taking care of them. For example a person with a lot of money could buy a lot of Ts thus this does not directly mean that they provide better care than someone who has 10 Ts but is well-educated in keeping.

    Yeah I travel all over the world just to track them. I battle with them and collect badges. All my Ts can learn surf so it’s not a problem. :woot:

    Sorry, I admit it's a pet peeve of mine when people use the the term hoarder. But in general most of the people on these boards that I know have a lot of T's tend to also be among the most knowledgeable. More T's = more experience. Anyone with a lot of T's and little experience will either get experience fast or will have so many problems that they will likely leave the hobby.

    So you've got to catch them all? ;)

    I always thought you were too lazy to keep track of your Ts. I expect yours arriving at my door any day...

    Don't feel that way. It's better to own 1 or a few etc, and understand them really well, than own a ton and know very little about them.

    This poll is really interesting, their really is no middle ground. It seems like the majority have 20 or less and then when they really catch the collecting bug, its pedal to the metal with 90+ (the largest minority.)

    Hmmmm.... BRB, going to go melt some holes in a couple dozen Mainstays and prepare for the inevitable lol.

    Thanks,
