    First post: joined august 2015 and has 34 posts ~7 in give aways
    second post: has been here since Nov 2014 and has 42 posts ~13 in give aways
    third post: J.Gennaro joined May 2015 and has 7 posts ~ in give aways
    fourth post: viking, joined October 2015 and has 5 posts ~4 in give aways
    fifth post: plant#1 Joined April 2015 and has 29 posts ~9 in give away

    Now, I only glanced so these may not be exactly accurate, and are the other posts amazingly informational and participatory? I don't know, I didn't look. But I don't think if those were MY stats, I would exactly consider myself as an "active member". And that's why we felt the need to add on that people wishing to use "Give Away For Active Members" should specify some type of requirement.

    Remember, that YOU get to pick the requirements, we wanted to leave that up to you, we did discuss making up our own "what makes you "active", but deiced not to. Since as some point out, they may not want to go by post count, or time on the forum. You get to put in your own requirements, for your giveaway so make it whatever you think makes the eligible for your giveaway. Or post it as a normal Give Away and let it go to whoever! =)

    Is it normal practice on this forum to list members and then put them on blast like above? I was considering switching over and making this my main forum I post on, and planned on doing a giveaway myself. As for the number of posts, it is worth mentioning that it's hard to have a high post count when this forum isn't nearly as active as it was in the past (or so I've heard), but the reasons why that is the case are becoming apparent.

    Not normal, no, but it's info that anyone can see. He was simply making a point, using hard data. It was nothing against you or those users, believe me. Nobody was "calling you out", but for the purposes of a giveaway titled "For Active Users", you hardly qualify. That's not a judgement against your character, just an objective evaluation. The people here appreciate it when their plants go to growers who stick around and contribute, rather than people with their hands out wanting to flip free plants on Ebay or whatever. It's a....touchy subject, lol.

    Zath got it right. I will also note that I said in my post

    Now, I only glanced so these may not be exactly accurate, and are the other posts amazingly informational and participatory? I don't know, I didn't look. But I don't think if those were MY stats, I would exactly consider myself as an "active member".

    Absolutely nothing against you or the others I mentioned, but it made a good point as to why the new rule was put into place. So people know exactly if they are eligible to join that giveaway. You seem to have pointed out why you think you were eligible to participate in it, but since the OP didn't write out his requirements we just didn't know if you did or not.
    Thanks,

    Is it your normal practice upon meeting a group of people for the first time to ask them for free stuff before at least saying hello and introducing yourself?
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Subrosa, the more I read from you, the more I get the feeling you are very difficult to get along with. Most of what I've seen from you in the past week has been unnecessarily negative and/or rude. Could you tone it down a little? I suppose, considering my post count, I should count myself lucky I've been able to avoid your vitriol, but I feel really bad for the others who've been on the receiving end. :/
