Pay it forward!

I had an epiphany last night. I was laying in bed thinking about how I really need to get a Jeepforum membership because of the useful information I have obtained on it…but then I said “Nope, not going to get myself a membership!” Now before you bash me for being cheap, listen to what I am going to do instead…I am going to donate money to other members that have started threads that I enjoy or, more importantly, that have give out advice that I have actually found very helpful. Just to make sure this system actually will work, I just donated $5.00 towards member Sky Hye’s membership upgrade account (because I found his "H.I.D.s on my TJ=WOW!" thread very helpful), and sure enough his balance is now $5.00. To do this all you have to do is click on the members name next to their post and then go towards the bottom and click on the link that says “Donate to XXX’s membership fund”. Then just use a credit card or PayPal and donate however much you want. Simple! So the way I see it, if I actually am giving back to this site and contributing, before too long I should end up being able to get my own membership from those that have found my posts helpful. I know it isn’t a perfect system, but this isn’t a perfect world. Perhaps tinker bell just blew a little pixie dust up my arse this morning and I have gone temporarily nuts, but it sounds like a good system to me.

So, if you like this idea here is what you do…
1st) Crawl this thread so others see it and we get the ball rolling.
2nd) Go donate a buck to the guy that started the thread you are thinking about, yeah you know the one, that one that helped you get that one thing done!

Have fun!

Good idea, we had this a little bit ago going on during a membership drive.

Unluckily for me, the guys I owe the most to, are already members.

Don't you still have to pay yearly for memberships? Can't it just go towards next years dues?

I like the idea of this thread. Will I see $5 from members for my floor thread? Doubt it, but it would be nice to be able to buy another 6 mo - 1 year membership because of it when this one expires.

This is really is a great idea I haven't been on the forum that long, but it's great to reward people that contribute something helpful.
