Kinda cliquish, too.
Dear 2nd Class Member
Funnily enough I agree with you.
- seen similar elsewhere on Forums
, ends up creating a them and us atmosphere. not so much from any resentment from the great unwashed
but from the sense of importance and entitlement that some
will gain from it. CF.com is (largely
) free from those stuck up there own backsides with an inflated sense of self importance (which IMO is one of the things / keys? to CF being welcoming to all, especially boat newbies).
Some people you can't
give a stripe to. even an imaginary one. (and funnily enough not always affects the expected people).
Having said that, I would be happy to accept the pictures in my Signature (if I can be bothered to write another one!) and the PM box upgrade very useful
.........now having the privilige of being part of the select few who can buy stuff from CF? - yer gotta be shittin' me!
Sounds like the Readers Digest prize draw
A good idea to blame the Al-Gore-Rythmn
But I would tweak it to rate long serving members who have posted (or simply logged in?) in the last year, even if overall not much posting
going on..........either that or change the name badge to "Contributor" rather than "Supporter". or do both.
Overall I would make that category label a lot less visible - might just be me, but never comfortable when someone slaps a label on me.
