While the 'request here' is not that dissimilar to the many others proposed over the past 8-9+ years I've been a member and 'moderator' of this
it would seem the overall consensus among staff is the same as with the previous, similar -type wants, needs and desires.
... that it would either prove the cause for or eventually create a 'caste system' of sorts, which, obviously would not be allowed nor sanctioned in
the first place.
the other aspect being, as has been noted by other members throughout, the further 'distinction' of a given Member over another given Member.
All Members are equal.... further distinctions, labels, etc only serve to cause/create unnecessary drama for the staff and boards down the road.
Just as withy the oft mentioned Top 50 ATS posters 'program'....
eventually, what happens when that "Nice Guy" or "Top 50 Poster" is either staff actioned, post banned or outright banned?
We don't ban folks outright, for any reason. Truth is, they typically ban themselves .... whethewr that be via extreme reactions to having a post
OIT'd, etc.. some folks just seem to react differetly whence they feel or have a 'following'
that's not going to happen here.
each and every upon their own 'merit', if you will.
I, personally, have the utmost confidence in our Membership's ability to discern/ ascertain diamonds from dust and bat guana from BS.
No. We won't be doing any sort of 'Nice Guy' [prolific poster program] anytime in the near future.
just as with many another topic [ W.O.D., etc] it's proven a failed effort , each and every - time.
