    I dunno, I kinda like it. Obviously I wouldn't just pull all the example posts only from badged people because that would give the impression that we're the only people making good posts.

    On the other hand, this could lead to posting egos when praising someone for a good thread/post like we've seen so many times in the past (Gormenghast, The_Requiem, etc.).

    Looking for any and all input.

    I don't like this idea for many reasons, but I will just be terse about it.

    a) kholdstaire is an idiot he isn't going to be a TA for anything
    b) People try to imitate what they think is good and it leads to a lot of this "beating a dead horse with a dead horse" (i made up that term and it is so true)
    c) Ego boosting never seems to be very effective
    d) People do not read SHIT. Even if we show them good stuff, they probably will not read it. IF they do, they will not follow it.

    Summary: Waste of time.

    You don't like your tampon? Tony, how is that relevant?

    Yeah, it's a bad idea. I give him points for being creative, but Firebot is kicking ASS the past two days.

    people would just use 'template posts'. i mean it already happens, we get mimicking of steelicks/me/whoever in firebot all of the time.
