I wanna start calling dedicated HUKD'ers VIP's...

Whats do you think the criteria should be?

I'm going for...

1. Over 1000 posts.
2. Full reputation bar.
3. Over a year of "service".
4. At least 1 hot deal over 100 degrees.

What do you think?

(PS: Flame wars begin?)

divisive:roll:, and personally I dont want to be called anything on here thanks.. members status is enough

re edited , gary good idea on the messenger thingy though but not for me

From a non VIP view, maybe a step too far....theres me thinking we were one big happy family :)

Mods and admin are enough surely? Don't see the need and agree with dogcop.

Great ideas otherwise though :thumbsup:
#5
It wouldn't include me, so not worth the trouble to be honest. :)

cant't see why not, sounds a good enough idea to me...... but then you will always get the sarcastic remarks from some members....not sure why they bother to reply to some threads..........

Why DO you wanna start calling dedicated HUKD'ers VIP's?
Not clear to me what the point would be except that you could tell whether they had a hot deal under the belt: the rest is just there already.
I'm definitely not being sarcastic because I'm too new and inadequately flamey.:)

who do you want to know what the word " sarcastic " means?
#13
its not a good idea...its like your better than others....and your not.
#14
Can't see any real purpose for it other than to make some people feel better than others, and some people feel lesser than others. If there was a good reason for VIP status, I'd suggest those people are too sensitive and should just get over it, but as there's no decent reason what's the point in risking upsetting any one?
banned#15
dont know what on earth anyone would get from this, its not like you would be any more thought of than someone with 10000 posts, this place is here for the deals and to pay a wage, those that post mean nothing more than those who dont

but some would love to see themselves better than others, and thats dangerous :roll:

Sounds a great Idea! Gives us all something to aspire to :whistling:

You could also arrange to have a medal posted to you on the achivement of this most prestigious status.

Well done you!:thumbsup:

i agree with starlet tbh, it will cause more grief than be beneficial

Would 'VIP's' have to qualify in ALL these catagories or 2, maybe 3 out of 4 as......
1. There are 'spammers' that have been run down for doing nothing here other than having a laugh, some of whom can build 1,000 posts in a VERY short space of time....the quantity doesn't signify quality as I'm sure you'd agree.
2. Again some people have said that the top section of the rep 'chart' is a joke & full of backslapping Misc & randomers...is it really the best way to gauge if a person is very important?
3. There are members that have been so for over a year & have barely posted into double figures.
4. So a member that posted 5 x 99 degree temp deals is less important than someone that posted 1 x 101 degree deal 11 months ago??!?

To be honest Gary, you've done tons to benefit this site, have helped a lot of people save money & made me smile with a stack of dry put-downs, but this is truly a joke of an idea.

VTB this is sarcasm at its best and take some rep from your effort it puts my statement to shame and perhaps someone ought to check your post against mine and spot the difference
I was thinking about we could wear those badges like they have at Burger king with the stars on while we are sat at out computers ... happy days :-D

Have read dogcops post a few times and still can't see how it was sarcasm. :?

Thanks dog_cop, if we backslap each other enough that rep bar will be glowing before we know it, surely justifying our place in HDUK'S elite.

Just another 900+ posts to go. I'm going to be really busy this weekend :-D

I don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight, the excitement is just too much to take!

Gary, you are truly the oracle of HDUK. I think I can say on behalf on all us minions’ a big thank you for your guidance and wisdom.

Tobe honest I don't like the idea purely because it would develop into a kind of "them" and "us" situation. Sorry.
#33
Pointless in my opinion, I'm sure we all have our own opinion of each other ie. ones we'd go for a drink with and others who we'd avoid - the ones who try and stir trouble in threads they have no real reason for posting in otherwise.

There are some genuine people on here I gauge I would get on with in "THE REAL WORLD" and there are some on an imaginary power trip.


Although the top members could merit some sort of badge like a blue peter one giving them exclusive discounts and free entry to theme parks and hey what about a free dunkin donut too!

does that include a free trip to the US to use the dukin donuts voucher?
#35
So, what do you reckon then gary-rip, after seeing what replies there are so far?
If it's just to qualify for your nice buddy thing, there's no need for the VIP status at all is there?:)
Those who aren't buddies would still like, I would think, to have access to the on/off line info for the mods.It's excellent that you have these good ideas but it looks like the 'VIP' isn't one of them.
