    It's great to see members becoming JrVips but do we really have to see all these,
    "I've just become JrVip" threads?
    It's a bit like high fiveing yourself in public or likeing your own posts on facebook.
    Guys and girls; If members of the forum are happy to see you as a JrVip they will
    congratulate you in whatever method they feel.

    Self promotion only weakens your stature.

    Anyway congratulations to you all for deciding to make the move and thank you
    for you dedication to BHW but come on it don't make you a superstar.

    For some guys becoming Jr Vip is a big goal they have dreamt of and worked hard to reach. $97 is not tip money for everyone. I dont see much harm in it.

    In my opinion, I think that we should have a kinda dedicated thread (like a sticky)
    where new VIP's can post that they have just joined.

    In that way, the threads will NOT clutter up as much,
    and, at the same time, it will afford the new members the opportunity to declare
    that they have reached their target (or for whatever reason, or whatever motivation they had to go blue),
    and then other BLUE members can post their welcome messages on their (the newly added) respective posts.

    Also, if new members join for reasons such as to post a BST etc...
    it gives them the free opportunity to state that in their opening post!

    Just an idea :)

    Oxonbeef, I think you are overlooking the fact that there are children on BHW as well as adults.

    ... or adults behaving like children or both?

    in any case, I stick with my original proposal above :)

    I was thinking along those lines myself.
    I remember the elation I felt when I was made Executive Vip. We do want to share the happiness.

    I hear ya. Nothing screams mature community like "Look at what I got for Christmas"....

    The "remember kids are here" defense is 100% understandable, but off the mark. Teenagers are the youngest here who are serious, not kids, and they do know better. If they don't, they'll know a bit better now. "What are you talking about?! Teenagers are kids!" They drive, and vote, drink, do each other, and own firearms. No, they are not kids, they're adulterers learning how to become adults.

    On the bright side, least there's never been a "Thanked 6000 Times Club!" thread, which you are approaching(and that thread would be a delight to read. hint)

    People look the own self motivation, a VIP JR or whatever could be a short term goal wich will carry him on further, thumbs up for that

    Well, I feel bad because I am "one" of those new Jr. VIP's that made a thread stating it (today actually). For me, it was not about the $97. I make that in an hour sometimes. It was about achieving a certain goal for myself, and then purchasing Jr. VIP as a reward to myself.

    Also, not to toot my own horn, but I purchased a fiverr gig with a sexy gal pic to celebrate with BHW!
