    I think as far as when to remove an Exec. it should really be when they don't behave like an Exec. or stop doing what it was that made them an exec anyway. Maybe open it up to the forum where anybody can open a poll to decide if we still deserve our exec tag. Majority rules and we can be bumped down at anytime because sometimes we (myself included) stop contributing as much and that actually hurts the forum in my opinion.

    Yeah, what got them in , should alos be the qualification that will keep them in. Maybe there should be some sort of guideline that says that you are recommended to carry on contributing and as a VIP you have higher standards.So maybe there is something that would say, you need to share at least 1 method or etc...

    Why not have several VIP's in different areas- VIP in CS, VIP in Adwords, VIP in CPA.

    Really.

    It usually happens at the end of the month which is not exactly here yet, and with the latest drama onboard here. It could and probably will be slightly delayed.

    I think it's safe to say, the only way to go about it is people deciding who deserves it, who has been the most helpful each month etc etc, which I kinda think is the right way to go about it, it will inspire us jnr vip's to help out more, there are some really helpful on here and some who cannot be bothered, I am not saying I have met any, but I am sure there is, I try when I can. just my opinion anyway. I think it's just a matter of having someone watch over the voting and everyone submitting 1 person they choose that month and then someone counts up the votes. And then announcing it the first of each month.

    I'd be willing to take that job on if it were created Harro. And yes, I'm being serious. I worked as an admin/manager/secretary/correspondence clerk for many years. It's right up my alley and being that I'm home full time, I have the time to do it.

    As for the how of things, I feel that it should be based on merit, not on a competition. If we're going to be naming names as others have, my votes would go to thisoldhat, gimme4free, freethetv....that's just off the top of my head.

    I think that people know who is contributing at a high level. What about in addition to the current method, allow people on the board (maybe just Jr VIPs, maybe not) to nominate one or two people a month. Whomever gets the most votes is guaranteed to go before the Exec VIP board, then they get voted on as usual. This gives the Exec VIP group the same opportunities to vote in who they want in & when, while giving some opportunity for the board as a whole to make suggestions.

    Again, though - as a rule, I think people who are here know who the new Exec VIPs are going to be before it happens. While there may be people who 'should' be Exec VIP and are not, no one says, 'how'd that happen to him / her?' to those that go white.

    My apologies I thought it was, I thought you became jnr vip and then moved up to exec vip, I kinda thought that maybe it should be open for everyone. I have met some noobs who have some really good knowledge, So once again I do apologize.

    Maybe we should have a HaRRo challenge, the forum votes 2-5 people to take the challenge. Then HaRRo comes up with a challenge, and the last man standing wins!! :D

    Im not saying that I think that this is a best idea, but when brainstorming you are supposed just say all the ideas(good and bad)

    So : what about keeping the same system, BUT , ex vips have to nominate and then vote at least once per month..

    Not a bad idea i was actually thinking of this idea a while ago.

    Like the apprentice, where a few people come work with me (online ofcourse since distance would be issue lol) and i knock someout out each time until im left with one person :D
    Then the winner gets something :)

    I would like to say that competitions are a great thing for the forum and that i would also like to say that new VIP's should also have a short period of watch lets say 1 month and if they keep on contributing good stuff to the forum and are cool headed and good with the noobs because noobs are the newblood in any forum that may be a solution, one thing to always keep in mind THE FORUM IS BIGGER THAN ANY INDIVIDUAL !!!!!!

    that's a lot of jr. vips :/ and i can't say to base it on activity and what not because really, some of the more helpful mates I have come across on this board are not on here as often as the mates that just fill the board with fluff, ya know?

    i agree here; and too because everyone has their own specialties and whatnot, if a 'contest' where to ensue, I'd say one that is not too dependent on any one aspect would be ideal.

    I like this idea for a few reasons really. After all, you have members that think they are invincible because they have reached about the highest level they can. And others may have drifted to the wayside. I think regular members will recognize this, but I think the poll should be a percentage of the vote--perhaps make the votes on all levels? Sure a bit more work, but honestly I think it's well worth it. BHW was a great haven before and idk...just seems to be a lot of chittin lately. Due diligence now may perhaps lessen that?

    Can't really say what criterion a member should meet to be exec vip, but I am going to be straight up here for a few:

    1. I think they should have no recent history of "how do I make x-bucks in x-time" type posts [idk...like in the past 90 days...ideally more...] because really, if you read here, you find the info here. If you can't do that much, you shouldn't have exec status. [ohhh....and how about any that have a 'press thanks if you like' type post too....I can dream?]
    2. The majority of their thanks should not be via the downloads section. Now I have quite a few attributed to that section myself so I sure as heck know that people do like to share to share and because that is the nature of this place. So not one person can come and tell me otherwise--I relate. I'm just saying is that these are downloads that are usually found elsewhere first or leaked to you via other means. And then there are some that can really 'get' things...regardless, who is to say really? So you should be exec vip because you can copy and paste? Because you know how to upload a file? I'll take a newbie with a wow method anyday over a copy and paste expert.
    3. Not been banned in recent history. [idk...30 days seems fine..maybe more...just throwin it out there] Idk about ya'll, but I see rarely exec vips getting banned all too often and I think it's because they know [and try to respect?] the rules and have enough common sense as to staying in good terms. So as such, I think another potential exec vip should not have been banned recently.
    4. Be a donor. Now I know everyone gonna have some bs to say about it but quite frankly if you are making money online and enough to think you could boast the exec status, I don't see why you can't be a donor too. I mean, if you love this place so much, want to support it and it's members, what better way than to donate? Heck, if you want to be whiny about it, how about ya give the people the chance to vote and if perhaps the member or jr vip member [depending on how ya'll are thinking this out] is not a donor, they can be given the choice to donate then and there and get their title or pass it to the next mate. fair enough? =]

    Just some mulling around...I'm not the best myself with 'clarity', but I do try...

    While i like that idea. People should be willing to share without trying to win a competition. Thats the sign of a true exec VIP :p

    I think things are good the way they are, within reason of course, simply because if you start creating a set group of criteria to gain access, surely you'll only be creating hoops for the "Marks" amongst us to start aiming for? :)

    Saying that though, madinaz's idea seems pretty good, but may i suggest those that enter are perhaps pre-qualified by the VIPs? I mean there are many Jr. VIPS that post more unsubstantiated shit than newbies. After all anyone can talk shit and post count doesn't qualify their brilliance anymore than the size of my cock qualifies my ability to breed bengal tigers.

    I'm probably not the best person to comment on this though, as I personally have no interest in shooting for VIP - I barely have time to wank, let alone spend time contributing to VIPs, as well as helping those who make 500 posts a day and buy extra storage for downloads.

    Peace and loving.

    Yeah..well put sir..
    And there are plenty of guys who have been helping out and putting out methods no strings attached. They dont do it to get some money or get to some status. They do because they care for the place :)

    Offer 1/2 to people you actually see contributing on the forum.
