    Red Hot Pawn's Hall of Fame (28 Dec '15 17:58 / 2 edits) Thread 166828

    "Annual public recognition of individuals is appreciated and reinforces loyalty in any corporation. Russ, why not innovate a similar concept in your online correspondence chess site with public forums? Here's a suggested format for you to consider for implementation early 2016:

    1) The dozen members with the earliest dates of joining who are still actively making chess moves and/or posting to public forums..

    2) The top ten chess players with the greatest volume of chess moves as documented on the Most Active Players Table.

    3) The top five members with the greatest volume of public forum posts during their membership if the archived data is still available.

    4) The top two or three members whose public forum behaviour consistently exemplifies RHP Forum Guidelines and TOS Standards."

    "Thanks for christening this idea with your own suggestions. With respect to 3): Red Hot Pawn advertising revenue depends on public forum activity and chess game volumes; however, it's essential to maintain quality standards both to attract new site members and retain members of record. Recognizing "most lines of text into a thread" in my view is a nice rather than a must have criteria. With "5) Greenpawn..." would the time frame for these "games" be the prior year?"

    What is your estimate of the proportion of RHP's revenue that comes from the advertisers whose products are exposed to those engaged in public forum activity?

    But you have claimed over and over again that such revenue is significant. Russ hasn't. So it's you I am asking.

    So, point (3) of your OP is an idea of yours that cannot withstand even just one simple, pertinent - but inconvenient - question, is that the long and short of it? 😉

    so much depends
    upon

    a red wheel
    barrow

    glazed with rain
    water

    beside the white
    chickens.
