Awesome man, glad to have you over here! What is great about this forum is that it is still new and developing and because of that the users here have a lot of input in choosing the direction it goes. Everyone has been super cool here and it seems like people are really working together to make this community into a unique place that many of the others lack.
That is awesome you picked up the Elex, seems like everyone is loving it right now. And you bring up an interesting topic about adding to this Community Preview Program by lending out personal gear. I think that is a great idea and maybe something we can discuss more about. I too have a plethora of gear on hand that I hardly use and would be willing to make available as a loaner.
