It is time once again to remind people of this function. I, myself, am guilty of non-compliance. Each time I remember to use this feature, it slowly fades from memory and hence this reminder to myself and others. I would put a sticky at the top of each Forum to notify members of the rate button at the bottom of each post. I am encouraging members to use that function, when they find a thoughtful post, an entertaining post or for a particularly clever retort. It gives the postee 1 dollar. I am somewhat amazed that only one person has broken the $1000 mark. I do know some have already used $500 on the italic feature. It has been 2 1/2 months since the 1st influx of people here. At this rate, the $3000 feature will take another 2 months for some to reach that mark for a total of almost 1/2 year.
