A CAPITAL idea?

Just had a thought....

How about lobbying lawnsite.com to start some financial rewards.... For instance, easy winners could be picked in the following categories:

1: Most posts in a month (volume)
2: Got voted "Post of the month" by his peers (popularity)
3: Started the most popular thread of the month as measured in responses.

This could be fun, and rewarding, and certainly would increase the hit rate of the site to the betterment of the sponsors and advertisers.

So, what say ye?

I am apart of another forum called glamisdunes.com. It resolves around the desert camping lifestyle. But they have things that when you hit certain amount of posts you get T shirts and bumper stickers. After like 10000 you get a special title and they have other special things they send out. It is pretty cool.

Actually, it is a good idea. I think we can put something together where people are rewarded for being loyal active members of the community. Let me feel around and see what I can come up with - maybe whoever gets to 20,000 posts first gets to choose which member of the forum gets banned....just a joke, calm down....

If I remember correctly, Pete said his role model was Donald Trump...

In which case his version of the Golden Rule might be something like "the one with the most gold wins."...

I think it could be more fun yet if we made it like Survivor and could vote people off the island.

If that didn't work chopping them up and feeding them to the sharks might.
