    I feel ya there I have yet to suck up a rope either so I have not claimed those points yet as I do not want to jinx myself.

    @Julian in today's society we expect a trophy just for participating. My posts aren't "liked" and often don't provide any real value. I demand a category that gives me recognition for just showing up ... I want a participation trophy and rankings category like "forum participant" ;-)

    But @Ilmmct likes are so easy to get just post stuff that many people find useful like this here is an instructional picture of how to do hanging crunches from a wake tower surely this will be searched on here and get many likes for it usefulness.

    @Ilmmct excellent point. Which reminds me.....
    @Julian English is not my native tongue therefore I am in a disadvantageous position to earn trophy points. Can you lower the benchmark just for me?

    Interesting idea.....now you have me thinking....an "Anti participation" trophy could be awarded.....if you don't show up in x days.....we dock you points! LOL

    I'm actually a little serious here....if you haven't been on the forum in over a year or two...you likely aren't really a member anymore....and members might message you not noticing this....perhaps we should have your banner title change to inactive? Hummmm

    @Julian ... as the saying goes "either the carrot or the stick" ... works for me, because I am a regular "participant" just not high valued stuff worthy of a flag officer title.

    @Julian ... We have discussed this and seen it first hand, where a years old thread is suddenly activated, when a new member does a search (finally), and a historic thread is brought back to life. It's all good, but the new poster hasn't looked at the post dates to see that the thread was years old. He is expecting answers from posters, that may no longer participate. Even though we participate today, we can't predict our participation in the future...things happen. So I am on board with a banner to indicate an inactive member.
