How can I become a contributing member, or whatever you call this when you pay something to have a little more than a free member?

I do wonder if these Green Stamp Of Approval, where a good idea or a bad idea? Recently some members have been issued by the owner of this forum with an impressive green stamp (Cruising forum supporter) creating a new category of member whoís are given a greater importance because they reflect (support) the view of the owner of what a CF member should be. In clear the owner approve of some and disapprove of otherís. These set this forum in only one direction, one flavour, that only members with a green stamp hold the right answer and CF just become a propaganda tool. It could also be that in the future only green stamped members will provide answers. To muddle further the value of these green stamps, they can be purchased for a modest some, curious. A poll on the subject would have been interesting and my vote would have been: a bad idea. To all

funny, that's not me at all. I've told quite a few to piss off because they had cranialrectosis. So yeah, I don't exactly play well with other all the time.
This would muddy your hypothesis I believe.

The impression I get is that it was to label some as having an amountable experience in boating whether it be commercial, pleasure, sea time or maintenance. The web site World Cruising and Sailing Wiki - Cruising Guides - Sailing Blogs - Boating - Marine News from CruisersWiki was referred to the labeled asking for their experience/contributions.

What is this "Wiki"?
The World Cruising and Sailing Wiki is a collaborative effort by cruisers from all around the world, to willingly share their knowledge of cruising around the world for the benefit of all who follow in their wake. Unlike a static website or printed publication that soon becomes outdated, this World Cruising and Sailing Wiki will always be up-to-date as members from all around the world have the ability to alter/edit/add to articles on this free, online World Cruising Guide, 24 hours a day.
How does this "Wiki" work?
No specialised skill is required to contribute to this World Cruising and Sailing Wiki. However, only registered members can login with their username to do this, so, please register - it only takes a minute and is absolutely painless. When logged in, each section and article in the Cruising Wiki has an EDIT button to enable you to add/edit anything. See the "HELP" and "TEMPLATES" pages (L/H menu) to assist you with the very simple editing process. Add your valuable knowledge so that others who are following in your wake can benefit. The World Cruising and Sailing Wiki is written for cruisers, by cruisers - sharing their knowledge in the true cruising spirit.

"cranialrectosis" Nice word. I live with it, fight it, and embrace it. C'est la vie. But it does kick off my a.d.d..


Reminds me of a song;

Not exactly. Wiki contributors are not related to member status here at CF. To post there you must register at that site and become a wiki author.

For more info about the Cruisers Forum Supporting member green label please read here. Being a Cruisers Forum supporter and a wiki contributor are not associated.
