    The next VIP status shall go to the one who can crystal clearly define its meaning in the context of this forum.

    And why would you want to be a VIP?

    No ...on a serious note. I would only say it's likability. :)


    But, then there's still Vin.

    If the criteria for VIP status is some sort of secret, even to those that have had the title bestowed upon them, then what's the point?
    Seems more like a participation trophy they give to every kid in the contest.
    Sorry, second place is the first loser.
    Set a goal or don't bother.

    Competent or useful in someway, for all parties involved.
    Why? I don't know. It creates a positive feedback loop which can end up being useful to everyone.

    Don’t know the specifics on it here, but in other forums from other times in my life, the title was achieved by several requirements.
    1. Being very knowledgeable in the subject matter related to the forum.
    2. Sharing that knowledge over time with young guns looking to learn.
    3. Encouraging the young guns to learn and share in order to keep the subject matter alive for the generations to come.

    Before I joined, I read many of the threads here, so I wouldn’t come in like a dummy, but as usual I was a dummy, but I kept at it and a few of the guys I met here became great buds, and I went back in time so to speak, by reading many of the different threads from years ago not just current ones, and the way I found this forum, was because of wanting to purchase the Dsl40c, I read the entire thread when it was only 300+ pages, and there were so many cool topics in that thread alone that I had to join to share some of my findings. And to be able to chat with all of the great members here.
    Cheers

    In answer to your question: rather than giving the generally ambiguous VIP title to "whomever" why not just do away with the the VIP title altogether? I personally don't see the need for it, not to sound ungrateful by any means at all, but I'd just rather see good members remain good members, and let that be that. If they wanted me to be a moderator, well that time passed in 2017. Otherwise I'm happy to just be Vin Smith.

    Vin Smith doesn't work. It would have to be something like Vin Petrucci or Vin Garibaldi or Vin Vintage.
