Congrats navyhmc! Now that you have reached 4k, you gotta make sure you stay with us. Don't go and pursue some other title on another forum. I am monitoring the craft forum websites...

I don't think Navy is in it just for the GMS gift card from Scuba Toys. I suspect he'll still be around (even after the ST shopping spree.)

Oh man I forgot about the shopping spree. One cart and two mins.in the store to load it up with as much as you can fit in the sucker (no two mins. on the web site and as much as you can fit in your online cart is out of the question). But its the first class flight to Dallas from anywhere in the Cont. US to get to the shopping spree that is the deal maker! 4K hear I come!!!

I wish they had given me 2 minutes on the web.

I would have done better if I was more familiar with the shop. I am not complaining though.

FYI, Larry does have some rules on the shopping spree. (check the link).

For example, you can't fill your cart with computers and regulators (and then EBAY them.)

I can't tell if you guys serious or joking about the shopping spree... if you are that is amazing.

Riley is jacking you about the first class flight. It was fine though. The hotel was good too. I cannot remember the name, but it is one that had a name :) at least. Nice. (It was the same place I stayed with my daughter's travel volley ball team.)

Why is everyone so surprised?

All Navy Chiefs just sit around and generate hot air. Usually with a cup of coffee in their hand. :smilie39:

It's part of their job description.

PS Congratulations.

Well Ni was just assuming it was a FC ticket I men with the the value of the gear you wind up the flight with there travel miles would be a drop in the bucket. At least they fly ya there though.......

Even if they did not fly me, it would still have been worth it. Scuba Toys ROCKS!

I can't tell if you guys serious or joking about the shopping spree... if you are that is amazing.

Same, though with the $4 Million revenue in 2007 (according to New York Times), which probably has increased since then, I really wouldn't put it past them... Anyone care to explain however?

Welcome to club, Navy!

You guys didn't get the first class flight? I really enjoy my stay at the W in Dallas, where did they put you up?

What really put it over the top for me, though, was the limousine pickup, the per-diem during my stay, and my private, intimate dinner with the models from the forum video.

Maybe that was reserved for the first GMS.

Mybe so. :) They put me in the Adolphus. "Airport limo" pickup. Pretty basic, but I cannot complain.

There a sticky or something that explains. I can't remember where.
You can' be posting "I agree" or "good Job" or "me too" the posts need to contribute to the forum.

(I think if you are under 18yrs, you need a parent's consent.)

How come I have not heard of this certificate before now? That adds credit to the theory that you're all jokingI live in Dallas, about 15 minutes from ScubaToys. Just before CompuDude made GMS status, I was in the store buying some knick-knack or whatever. As I was paying, Rick, Joe and I were BS'ing about various topics. The subject of the popularity of the forum came up. (Back then, there were less than 4000 members). We discussed the various levels, such as Guppy, Barracuda, Shark, etc.

Joe mentioned that Kalani AKA CompuDude, and his approaching the 4000 mark. There was, apparently, quite a bit od discussion between Larry and Joe concerning what the next level above Shark should be called and what the number of posts were required. So Rick speaks up and says, "I've read his posts. I dunno. Seems like a lot spam to me. Lots of good stuff on topic an very informative, but the rest...pfft!!" There were nods of agreement all round. We agreed; he was a Master Spammer.

"Regardless", replied Joe. The he said something like, "That level of commitment deserves special rewards." The result of that discussion and a follow-on with Larry, gave rise to the limo, Adolphus hotel, framed certificate, etc., etc., etc.

I'm sworn to secrecy concerning the 10,000 level.

I've heard rumors that you can get your own ST franchise after the 10,000 mark. The reasoning behind it was that since you obviously spend 10-12 hours a day here anyway, you might as be selling some stuff and making more money for Joe and Larry.
