    Hey man, just a few follow up questions here...
    A few months ago you said you were working on another use for the credits..is there any update there?

    I see this is affiliated with the Seahawks and Chargers too, whats the story there? (not that its a big deal, they're decent enough)

    How come I cant say " ******* **** in a ***** just dont forget your *************, ************!"

    (just playing, but were there profanity complaints?)

    Not thats it terribly important but where can I find an article about the ratings, rep power, experience, and title progression? (i.e. Waterboy, undrafted free agent, 7th round pick, etc...) and at what post count(s) do you upgrade and in what order...again, not terribly important, but I am curious.

    Thanks in advance, Josh

    Ahhh, much obliged, Jess!
    Since I have you one on one at the moment, may I ask a question to you?
    (its not important, but I'd be a liar if I said I haven't wondered) Are you a guy or a girl? and who -was- that lady in your previous pic?

    I'm a dude. (Disppointing, isn't it? :p )

    And that was Michelle Beadle from the show SportsNation on ESPN2. She will be my wife someday. She just doesn't know it yet.

    Were those two related? And I won't be offended if they were.

    Great question. I have been making progress on this, but I keep getting pulled in different direction for other projects before I can finish that one. However, I will give you some details.

    The main idea behind the credits is that people can contribute on the site and then contribute to something in real like. For example, you can exchange 500 credits to offset a pound of carbon emissions. This might be an off the wall example, but there are going to be a number of charitable organization that we are going to have involved in our credit system. Food for homeless, school supplies for needy kids are a few examples of other things we are going to be getting involved with. We are also looking for local charities within Green Bay that people can donate their credits to in exchange for whatever that program is in need of.

    So back to the carbon emission example, when we reach 1,000 pounds, we will donate the cost of that to carbonfund.org with the program they have setup.

    Here is another site that is doing this. We are trying to model this project off that site:
    Redeem Butterfly Credits

    Bigger project then I expected, but those credits are going to mean something! Might even bring back the casino, but that depends on the demand from the members.

    I would call it an affiliation, it is letting users know we(my company) has other sites in their network. Now if we ever acquired a Bears or Vikings site, you would not see that logo on the bottom. :)

    We just wanted to make this site/forum a little more welcoming. I know that no one likes to be censored, but it is a necessary evil when you are trying to grow and go mainstream.
