    Designations are given either as a reward for monetary contributions to various campaigns or for service to OCDO. Time in grade is a consideration in the latter, as well as specific conduct/contributions to the forum.

    So if I send money (via PayPal?) to OCDO, I can be given a special designation? You got a link to where, how much?

    Don't think there are any current/active campaigns.

    color, no the stars should be considered like notches on the grip of his pistola from the number of smart arses he has evenhandedly banished in the name of maintaining fortuitous happenstance on this hear space of al gore's invention.

    I don't know for sure (I've never asked) but I think that the first star is added after a certain minimum number of posts. I can't recall seeing a long term user/poster with no star - maybe its because I don't pay much attention to that though.

    You want another one - take a couple of mine......they're heavy to lug around.

    Anyone that leaves of there own volition (not banned) is welcome to come back and join in the discussions. We might would all be better off if we stuck to facts rather than personalities. Smile a lot and be pleasant as much as possible - it works here just as much as it does on the street.

    I miss certain people that are not here any longer - you might be shocked if you knew who. Their posts were often like hard chaulk on the blackboard, but one was caused to think and maybe reevluate their thinking as a result.

    Unfortunately that is the best I can give you. Stars/recognition are not in my job description - John handles that .

    I have actually been wondering about that (campaigns -- what "OCDO" does outside of what the founders do as or not as "OCDO") -- guess I might as well borrow the tail end of this thread, eh? Any plans on new campaigns or "actual" activity that "members" can help with or participate in outside of simply ranting and raving on a forum?

    perhaps oc for me declined his star in a solidarity stand for those who have had injustice perpetrated against them by society in general!

    or we could start a membership demonstration on behalf of oc for me to finally be awarded his 'star' after all these long years of service to the forum.

    but i truly must state ####defender...you might wish to either find something useful to do in society or turn down the meds a bit cuz you checking everyone's star status against their post'gs seems to me just a wee-bit on the creepy side.
