All he means is that you reapply for certain cards and get the bonus even if you already have that card and haven't cancelled it

Starwoods preferred guest. I'm going to guess that you're coming from the DD mainpage. Try doing a little more research before you start applying for cards

edit: why isn't it giving me the warnings that a new post has been made while I was typing?
cuz you responded at the same second ;)

True.
But I think we need a thread like this. Or at least, a real FAQ.
+1 i think there should be a a "search thread" - because the problem with searching these days on DDF is (sometimes itll help) many times u need info and its hard to find with so many posts and threads. and sometimes if u write two words itll bring all the searches of both words seperetly. so in the thread if i would only ask if i couldnt find in search bar and if someone knew where it is - he'd post a link to it or quote.
what does spg stand for?
that u can find here

Sure. Where's AsherO?

Now that's what I call flame-bait :P

If people can't browse/search (or have no common sense to figure out the answers to basic questions using those methods), I'm not going to spoon-feed them. Newbies learn, n00bs never mature and often morph into leaches or trolls (IMHO).

An easier way is to click on the title of the post (i.e. "Re: Basics") and then copy the link it takes you to...

The one I quoted.

DovidR is suggesting that I should be the one compiling a beginners wiki (he was replying to Bubbles).

oh i see. i agree. i thought u were saying in general (and regarding my post:)
i think there should be a a "search thread" - because the problem with searching these days on DDF is (sometimes itll help) many times u need info and its hard to find with so many posts and threads. and sometimes if u write two words itll bring all the searches of both words seperetly. so in the thread if i would only ask i couldnt find in search bar and if someone knew where it is - he'd post a link to it or quote it.

It was tongue-in-cheek Asher, your impatience with newbies is legendary on these boards.
But I really think we should put together a real FAQ and sticky it.
Hey, you would be pestered less, right?
Dan probably agrees because his top thread says "and FAQ"
