Too bad, because I like discussion. How do people with lots of posts and/or quality posts directly (as I explicitly wrote) lead to profit for the man running the show?

Useful posts on DDF = more active users/traffic = more deals being posted on DDF = more content for DD to get deals from = profit.

What he ^ said.

@AJK:
Do you get a HT for helping TR's get to the main site?


What do I know, I only work post here.

Hence, indirect. I'm curious what AJK thinks I said incorrectly. ETA: Based on his quote, I think our definitions of direct and indirect are very different.

B/c not every deal/perk/trick that pple post makes it to ddms. So if someone is contributing to his full strength and pple are gaining, just b/c there is no HT, why shouldn't he get credit for his help and contribution??? Just my 2 cents.
Did you read my post? I explained that those are 2 different groups. Those that contribute directly to profit and those that keep the forum alive and strong. Regarding your last point - NO ONE should feel that they deserve credit for their help and contribution. If Dan feels that one day he wants to reward people, then gezundeheit. And, once again, if he decides to reward only those that directly led to profit, great. If he decides to reward only those that make this an active community, great.

Fair & Balanced
here is my proposal

the DO participants should be voted in by DDF members, if everyone is selfish and votes for themselves there's no winner.
If everyone plays well, the winner will represent the ones who voted them in.

How to implement
Generate a report with members starting XXX post count. (those that don't post aren't helpful)
use ssi to create a custom page (to verify membership)
only members with xxx post count can vote (to prevent new registrations to vote [current members from creating new accounts to vote again])
a member could only vote once (other wise its pointless [Suggestion: maybe redeem HT for more votes])
there's a minimum vote count one needs to be the winner (to ensure global participation)

After all it's only a game and everyone understands that a game has winners and losers, for those that get insulted for losing a game this is good therapy

anyone for it?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Sounds like a popularity contest as there is nothing for other members to gain by having helpful posters get a free dinner.

It'll just end up being a bunch of random votes for who people think would be funny, probably vast majority for Henche because than he'd have to show up.

Are you saying that Dan has not, in the past, held a DO or 2 and invited just who he wanted to attend? I find that very hard to believe. Why all the publicity about it now? It's clear that there is a need for people to go unnoticed on this forum and never be recognized for their willingness to help anyone who asks. The holy rollers (or inner circle) will remain as such and dole out help to whomever they deem worthy. I'm just glad for the people who do help me and for the ones who ask for help and make me feel like I am worth something.

There was a targeted promo and you didn't get chosen. Stop complaining.

If that came to be, could we get hm, cv and cm all in the same room at the same time? I'd buy a ticket for that one!

I learned in a PM the gender of Henche's spouse.  Unfortunately, we live in MA, so knowing someone's spouse's gender doesn't get you very far.  :-X
