Hi Wocca,

I was actually thinking of this exact same thing earlier this evening.... I'll have a bit of a chat with Pete about it tomorrow as I think we have a skype session planned. It would be a better way of measuring contribution in terms of travel related information sharing, but of course doesn't really reflect accurately how busy a member has been on the forum....

Definitely food for thought though, thank you for thinking so proactively (there's been a few good suggestions over the past few days/weeks)!

Cheers,

Sam

Thanks for your positive feedback. I fully appreciate that the final decision rests with you & Pete

Hey Warren,

The posts in the off-topic forum already aren't counted when calculating user's member titles. I don't really care so much about the post count. It reflects quite well what a user's participation is like I think.

Hey Peter

Thanks for your comments. Coincidentally, you & Sam both posted replies to my suggestion at much the same time. Up to you two, to attach whatever level of significance you deem appropriate.

I can't understand why you chose to address me by my real name (above) in an open forum. I know that some very regular members do it with each other from time to time (including myself), but it can be a bit confusing for other members.

Cheers
Wocca

I just 'do unto others as I would have them do unto me'. But hey, from now on, 'Wocca' it is then.

Call me whatever you like, but just don't call me late for dinner

Hey, I just came across this thread, and am truly surprised at what I've been reading.

I must admit that I've never been even slightly offended by anything that I've read in the off-topic forum, whether it was directed to me or to someone else.

I'm also not bothered when threads evolve into something that has nothing to do with the original topic.

Further, I'm not bothered when threads turn into a "conversation" between what may appear to be a "closed group".

I'm of the opinion that you come to this site out of your free will, and so you are able to leave this site out of your free will. I also hate rules.

Finally, I'm happy to take the blame for anything and everything if it means that we just move on and forget it.

I like all of you!

I second James, and let's agree to close this thread too please and get back to business
