that's why I'm torn between post count and member duration. both have pros and cons.

I think the post count could be minimal, 25-35ish. I've rarely come across someone who has been here for 2 years and only had 5 posts. it happens, but rarely

This is the only thing that can make the contest run as intended it is up to us as members now!!

Post count shows activity and interaction, unless they are posting only in "game" threads. It is up to the members to nominate people they SEE posting in threads helping others, offering solutions, contributing.

I do agree with the duration qualms, but lurking isn't contributing and this is what this community is about. People join to seek and give information, be a part of ownership camaraderie.

This was a great thing to bring up and a great discussion and I am sure it will continue. I think as others have spoken up it is something they are thinking as well. So great job on bringing this forward

This is funny! I think you meant to put a comma after Bluejet. Otherwise, you are calling him a lurker!
