    A la Hunger Games...

    All right noobs. We're all just about tired of seeing you guys hanging around MF like it's the official water cooler of the email industry, but not contributing a dime. So, if you're going to continue to wait for the few people who DO like to blab secrets to post, we might as well have fun while watching you guys cower together like rats.

    Starting today, I will randomly pick ONE OR MORE new users per day from my barrel of names and announce him/her to the forum. These new users will have 72 hours to respond to the thread with an introduction of himself/herself as well as a contribution of ONE tip for the forum (e.g. something they've learned). Your introduction must not be less than one full paragraph.

    If there is no response within 72 hours, or your introduction is poor and a "blow off" or your tip reads something like "Don't use 50 exclamation marks in your subjects" you will be IP banned and left to fend for yourself out in the world without MF as your savior.

    If you have just signed up today, please be on the lookout! Every day a new random participant will be selected from the previous day.

    "This is how we remember our past. This is how we preserve our future."

    Forced participation in any forum will result in a reduced quality of posts. The biggest problem with forums are people that ask the same questions and fail to utilize the search feature. Also the over abundance of self-promoting douche nozzles offering their great IP deals with additional bonuses and 'specials' to entice ignorant suckers into parting with their cash.

    Agreed, but heck, I think many of us would be happy just to read a small paragraph of introduction to enhance the "community feeling". I don't expect noobs to honestly post astounding secrets, but they can say a little "Hey, this is my name, this is what I do, this is what I need help with, thanks"
