I'm new here and tried to post a question yesterday regarding cues. I saw a message about my post having to be approved by a mod???

The post still has not shown up nor have I heard anything back. Is there a particular reason for it or do you have to be a paid member to post a question?

Maybe I missed the information, but would you please explain the Mr. Magic Threshold that separates the various classes in our little capitalistic cue society?
I understand what you are doing with this plan, but with all due respect, I honestly don't like it. I have been in this community for much longer than most of the fishes around, and one thing that has made it work all these years is the freedom and equality of all members in our community. We don't need a caste system here.
As with all things, this change is most likely based on a profitability analysis. I hate to see this, but I understand. The whole world has the same illness. Everyone wants to get rich, grow bigger, consume more, rank higher, best the others. Why not milk it here too.

Hopefully, a worker ant silver-level minion like myself can still voice an opinion of dissent, or shall my home be covertly surrounded by Super-Gold Cue Dealers, friends of pro-pool players, and other highly-valued billiard corporate members to extinguish this nascent uprising of the worthless masses? Rise my fellow silver skins! Rise my bronze-bellied, t-shirt wearing, bicep tattooed, low-credit hustlers! Your participation is no longer valued at the same level as the Elite! You can look into the pool club boys, just don't touch the $%^& water.

Okay, sorry ... you guys aren't like gonna' demote me for this are you? Cause I can like delete this post if it makes you angry and stuff. And if you Masters of Webdom will make me Gold man, I'll even say I like everyone and that this whole Olympic strata thing is a super-doper idea.

Yeah, that's the ticket Mayberry.

How do I become a silver remember?


If you lose, you're actually losing to yourself because you gave your opponent that chance by not keeping him to his seat.

You definitely seem to have some issues. Why don't you try donating some money to this site that you like so much?

Double gold - 06-20-2013, 11:05 PM

How about a double gold status? I want to be the first if possible. I get more enjoyment from this site that any other out there and want to contribute to it even more. Even if I get no double gold, I'll still send in another contribution, just let me know how..

Um can I just say that supporting the site with a little donation does not confer any extra privilege or protection when it comes to the discussion part of the forum. The rules are applied equally randomly to all members regardless of the membership status.

Hmmm, Rain Man ... The Mars Man. Seems as though THE MAN be all over this Thread ...

I done been fightin THE MAN all my live-long days, and now he done made his way into this internet thang.

I's got issues too ... Lordy, Lordy, what's I gonna' do but go and buys me ones of them there gold bar things. Uh huh. I be movin' on up then. I be a real Mr. Somebody then, likes that man from Mars be. Yes sir, RESPECT, that's what I's gonna buy.

Actually GoldMembers, all I really wanted was for someone to explain this system. There wasn't even an email notification. I see now that Gold is for a cash contribution. That's fine ... Cheesy ... but fine.

Personally, I don't like it. As one of many voices still allowed to speak here for free, I can - not like it -all I want without having any "issues." Websites generate revenue with web traffic. Other revenue can be obtained by taking it from those such as the Case guy that generate sales revenue from the use of the site. A small fee for listing items in the "For Sale" category would also generate revenue. In other words make revenue from Commercial Account holders and those profiting from the site via sales. Even links, such as the signature link to my web site, could be a benefit of only commercial account holders. No color-coded boy scout badges are necessary. Creating a perceived strata of class on our Board based solely on monetary contributions is -- in my opinion -- a mistake.

I'm mainly just having fun with you guys about this. I love the site, always have, and wish the best for it. But I don't need anyone telling me what or whom I should support. In essence, The Man from Mars is pointing out one of the basic problems of the system. He is already looking down and finger pointing the Member that didn't do what he did. We don't need that here.

My apologies if humor disrupts anyone's business Karma.

All the best AZ!

3. All details are here : Benefits of joining AZB


This new system is a way for us to reward those who are active in the community (Silver gets you 18 month of extra archive compared to Bronze), and of course those of you who contribute and help keep this project going. Celebrating 15 years next month !

We hope you enjoy the new website !

please don't take this the wrong way, cause i'm new (although my BF is o-l-d....) and i have 0 problem becoming a member.

question: is there an option, for me to censor/prioritize, the threads that i'm interested in, personally? (or delete the ones, that i am not)

i ask, cause there are so-oooo many threads daily. and it's time-consuming to find the ones @ page 3, etc, that i was originally paticipating in....
thanks & again - no offense!

If you have commented on a thread you are "participating" in it. If you just want to follow it as a matter of interest without commenting just left click on "Thread Tools" and then left click "Subscribe to this Thread" (See Below). In both instances you will receive an email notification with a direct link whenever someone posts. Hope this helps!

thank you, Bob!
ok, help me w/ this - i run through 100-200 work-related emails/day. if i ADD this option to my email, and the thread(s) take off @ 300 comments @ 8 fricken hours....then what?

i guess i was hoping that in purchasing a membership, that i could have some "private" options, to "delete/hide", any threads that didn't pertain to my interests....again, no offense. i do know that this option exists, if i don't ever want to see posts, per certain members.

again - thank you for your time!
