I was kinda slow getting started at"posting"on this Forum. But now it seems that I post "too much"............it's seems that I have accuired "C3VR Forum Addiction Virus." I HONESTLY DO NOT POST just to get POINTS.I HONESTLY LIKE the MEMBERS on this FORUM. That's my 2 cents and if someone has a problem with that, please PM to complain, don't be goin' behind my back...not that I'm sayin' anyone has......
Vette(s): had a really nice one. sold it to a good friend. Purchased 2004 custom coupe in Feb. 2009 did not tell anyone here until August 2009. BAD I KNOW.
Not sure when this thing got started, but i just have to ask "WHY???" I mean Adam, boss man, you have be saying in the past that you needed some help with getting shark bytes out and help with the annual gathering, and thing of that sort so why are you/we looking into having more trouble than it is worth, personally, points, giveaways, would be a gross miss use of your labor, time, energy, and resouces. People come here becuase of the site you put together and we are the reason people stay, anything above that is swimming up stream. What to do something special than just do that, watch a new member post alot for tech answers or gives good tech answers, mail them a tshirt, or a manual, or something else. You see someone with 999 post when they post thier next one they get a pm and you send them something. Easy cuz it is all in what makes you feel good, and everyone loves good surprizes,, I know that i could care less about points or any of that crap I became a lifer, becuase this place is full of life. I give something away every week, why because it makes me feel good, makes them feel special, and they are going to tell some one and that person is going to come shop my department to see if they will be so lucky, maybe they will. sorry this is so long. Larry

My aren't we an opinionated bunch... I don't really see much harm in your suggestion Adam. I guess I never really thought about a need for a posting incentative.
On the other hand I think is a nice gesture from you to reward those that have contributed. (Heaven forbid me for this...) Guyz like Joel, Mike, Ken & numerous others have come thru for many of us several timez over.
I doubt that it will change the complexity of the Forum much and if it should then I suppose you could unplug it anytime you wish. Afterall it is your show.... for now though herez my
Vette(s): Used to own a 1979 Corvette now owned by JB79
I think based on these comments, I'm going to hold off on this. I do like the "just send someone something as a surprise" idea, though. I'll have to figure out another way of mass rewards. The posting thing could be too ugly and too much work.
The thought is good but i believe it will add to a lot of BS postings. Maybe if you count the post and had a quarterly or semi annual drawing for a prize for the most post or post the quarterly top posters and let the members vote as in the corvette online show.
