Man, he was posting almost every two minutes or so. He must really want that (fill in the blank) badly.

What I find weird is he has been a member since july of 2009.

Going for the 250 mark?

Yes.

Mosts of his posts are "Me, too". For example, "If you're using a mix of 40% or less...no difference. " from the thread concerning differences when using Nitrox with the regulator. Umpteen people already said this, including NavyHMC. Yet, our lad felt compelled to chime in. Why? Who knows.

If we're lucky, he'll respond to this thread and increase his post count even more. A bit of back-and-forth should put him over the top. :)

I'd rather read them in this thread than in a old thread where nothing new is being offered.

When you make 250 posts to this forum, you get a $50 gift certificate. Just ask Joe for it

Noob, Noob, Noob....I thought we talked about this.

Send Joe and Larry a PM or email and let them know you've passed the 250 mark and they'll send you a GC number to use. Also, you get a $10 GC at 10 posts....

We probably did. I'm sure I forgot while multitasking. I should have stopped working and did what was important. LOL

I'll pm Joe.

I finally PM'd for my GC's a few months back so I could get a new mask. As luck would havt it they stopped carrying the one I wanted that week so I haven't used the cards yet.

Does that mean you did not see it in the on-line store? If you want the mask PM/email Joe. I've ordered several things through Joe that "are not carried". If it's from one of their standard suppliers or vendors with whom the have a relationship, chance are Joe will deliver it.

Remember, ScubaToys is all about Customer Service.

Good catch. Weird. It started several days ago.

After it disappeared online I called them and was told they no longer carried it and, IIRC, were not able to get more. It was the Tilos Excel mask.

Amazon sells the mask for $47.

I bought that mask at ScubaToys a few years ago. It didn't fit my face, unfortunately.

Yeah I know, Amazon and a few others still sell it or I could find a knock off for ~$30. But I don't have $60 worth of gift cards with any of those other places...:smiley29:

Be careful buying from Amazon. Make sure you check the source of the item as they deal with LeasurePro on a lot of dive items. I don't know about you guys, but I really don't want to support that site directly or otherwise.

You can use both gift cards together in a single purchase.

ya but didn't they make it where the gift card could only be 10% of the purchass????

I remember them doing that right before I got mine, thought with a 4k+ purchase it was not hard to use it

I hadn't heard that. Doesn't really matter, though, because you can use it on multiple purchases until it's used up. According to Larry, he anticipates that $50 GC will initiate about $650 in purchases.

You realize that nothing happens at 3000, right? No GC. No change of forum status.

That's how I read it too, but ST applied my entire gift card value to a purchase even tho the gift card was about 20% of the purchase. They sho do know how to keep customers coming back don't they. :smiley2:

You get a Strip-O-Gram. With Joe.

The GC policy changed sometime early this year, IIRC. You used to be able to use either or both together in their entirety but that got changed because some people were trying to scam it by making duplicate accounts and there was just too much post padding. The new policy is listed somewhere, I'm feeling way too lazy today to look for it. Now you are only allowed to used a certain percantage of the forum GC at a time.

This is a big part of the reason why we don't see the same level of constant useless "me too" posts in old threads like we did a year or two ago.

Me neither--I NEVER PAD. Not even in high school. Okay, maybe once in Jr High before I became curvy. The toilet paper Mother pulled out...she made me cry with shame. Guess I shouldn't have worn her old bra on my head.

:smiley2: I already used my GC!
