I'm toying with the same idea over on my own Irish forum.

My thoughts are that a friendly helpful "Trade member" is a huge asset to the forum membership and should not be charged more.

Maybe allow them to gather Brownie Points and after say 50 or 100 point be elected to a Super Trade membership. Trade Friend / Trusted Trader etc... Some kine of title that indicates that they are active Forum contributers as well as being in the trade?

Kind regards,

Stuart

The best idea I could come up with was RIB.net Promoter, but the definition is going to be too hard to police by my reckoning.

Some forums have systems for thanks or similar point scoring, which might be an interesting concept. None of the forums I regularly use have the system though so I do not know.

Anyroadup, Trade it is for me. Just need to save up the beer vouchers now.

I thought my disguise would stop you from taking the pees, how wrong was I.

What do you think? Channel Ribs... A bit more descriptive than being named after a brew shed?

Not really seeing as you are currently boatless . How about an interim 'Channel No-rib'.

You might want to correct the typo in your address on your new home page.
