any of the full time pros like myself on this forum know that essentially what we do on a daily basis is market knowledge.....

so here's a proposal..... if you get good, helpful, accurate advice from someone on here that really simplifies what you are trying to do..... you should donate a buck.... if the advice is incorrect or erroneous, the advice giver should have to donate a buck......

any thoughts??

Um, I"m thinking no on this one.
It's a good idea, but that kind of defeats the purpose of internet forums. Which is to have the FREE exchange of information

I just donated some money, now you want more, why don't you just give out your home adress so I can mail it to you!We Market Knowledge -- posted image.   
Good idea, just don't think people will follow through on something like this, or they will argue that the info wasn't that great.

YEah, but do you really think people will come here for info if it's kind of expected that they'll pay for it?
I personally would go check out a book at the library to get the info before paying someone else for the same info.
Note that I share ALL of the information that I have acquired over the years for FREE. I could easily open up a shop and charge an arm and a leg for simple advise, but I don't. There's no reason to. There are so many other places that people can get the info for FREE!
Lets please keep it that way. I personally think that it's a little selfish to be even asking for money. If that's the case, then why did you even give advise in the first place?

Don't listen to poorman, all he does is inspire arguements. Since he is so poor I'll kick in 10 for him and 10 from me. And since I donated 10 for you, stay out of this thread and any other threads like this from now on.

Hell, I'll drop 10 too. I think its a great idea, but if I gave a dollar for every peice of info gained from this site, then how would I ever buy any equipment? We Market Knowledge -- posted image.

Well said, auex.  And the great thing about Paypal is that you can donate just one buck and it costs you no more than one buck.  I donated again a few weeks ago (my wife's name if you're looking) and it was just for the sake of helping to keep one of the internet's great forum sites alive and kicking.  It was only twenty bucks but it was tip money and so I thought  "If I can get a tip, I can GIVE a tip".  That came not long after I read that  the12volt had to consistently kick in on the monthly web expenses to keep this site going.  It's not enough to contribute with dialogue (and a poster with a question contributes just as highly as a poster with a response), we have to continually feed this forum with ideas like kgerry did in this thread.  The consistent thing about this forum's readership is that it is constantly changing.

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.
