I would really love to encourage people to visit Seattle and Washington State in general (not for the food). If you want me to try and embellish my TR, I can try.

agreed, very nice state... the liver in Seattle (dont remember the name of the deli in a Albertsons) was AMAZING.

Comments:

1.  +1, DDMS top tab for organized TR collection may be a real draw and goto source for readers.

2.  Could be a potential business opportunity for Dan, as well, to have side ads (with discounts, of course) for the establishments mentioned in the TR

3.  Thorough editing and discretion necessary to remove all the great hints/workarounds/shtik (that are included in some DDF TRs) which we may NOT want to publicize and kill

4.  +1, potential notoriety will greatly add to the quality and quantity of ddf TRs

Add them to the Wiki.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

It seems to me like there was a decent pickup in TR writing since dan started this. Not sure if that was the plan, but it seems to be working.

  • 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.

I'm getting frustrated with friends and relatives saying "I saw on dans deals you can fly to Israel for x miles and I need a flight for 4 people on this specific date"

Perhaps it would be helpful if it was explained on DDMS about availability and saver awards vs. regular awards.

You will always have those people. If you actually look through DDMS closely you will see that Dan has published several articles about how to fly to X and how awards with different programs work.

Side note: Don't think thats really for this thread.

Bora Bora & Melbourne (A Mrs. AJK Special)
