    Your hair will stay thick and rich, your gut will vanish, your love-making stamina will improve, pheromones will trigger that make women swoon, your bank will begin to make errors in your favor, your boss will appreciate you like you deserve, kindly billionaire strangers will take you under their wing and teach you all their secrets, the GLOCK carbine will be named after you, your muscles will become chiselled and well-defined, your scruff if you choose not to shave will look manly instead of sloppy, your wife will find your snoring cute, your poop will smell like strawberries, your dog will never go potty inside ever again, your chosen candidate will win the next presidential election, and your car will get better gas mileage.

    All that, and a snazzy title under your name and access to Glocktalk Blogs!

    Well i'm just wondering what i'm supporting and what a membership entitles you to. I could not find anything, unless i'm not looking hard enough on this site. Just wondering. I'm intersted in being a member.

    Did you trip over the post by Eric stating that he's not sure what each of the levels will bring yet but he'll let us know as soon as he comes up with it?

    So, has the clock on membership officially started yet? It seems like it shouldn't start until we get the level appropriate benefits. Of course it's cool to get the labels early if it hasn't.

    Ok. I remember reading about this months ago. In that time, I've deployed and I come back after being in country a month, and he still hasn't answered this question.

    No offense, but this is silly. Absolutely silly. I won't be coming to this site anymore.

    At the end of the week my ass. Ban me, please.

    :yawn:

    I'd kind of think that someone who's been "over there" for our country could do better than act like a whiny spoiled little girl over something he hasn't and doesn't even need to pay for if he does not want to, but...

    Well,there's that "Marine" who threw a puppy off a cliff, and er... (thinking hard here...) ah, got it, General Wesley Clark. All those exceptions that prove the rule.

    So I guess I'm not utterly shocked by you. Just a tad bit disappointed.

    Tell ya what, I won't pretend to know whatever job it is you do over there, and you don't pretend to know enough IT to understand that a site the size of GT would be staffed full-time by anywhere from five to fifteen people, not counting data-center/hardware staff as opposed to just Eric and a handful of dedicated part-time volunteers.

    m'kay? :thumbsup:

    I would just like to get acknowledged for having a membership. Whatever the $35.00 bought should have been my membership. Yes, it went through the bank, but I have yet to see it on the avitar. Oh well, I guess I just contributed to a great sight. At least with raffle tickets I have a chance to win something.

    I don't need the recognition.

    You can claim CLM #19 if it makes you feel better.

    I get the benefits of the site regardless of what my avatar says.

    That's what I paid for, not a title or perceived prestige.

    Dang all I was asking is what benifits come with it. Like discounts on products, newsletters, etc. Would you pay for soemthing when you dont know what your getting? You dont throw money away for no reason do you? If so send me some money and I will print up a membership with photoshop and give you one. :supergrin:

    All I did was ask a qeustion. I love this site but if this is the way you guys are going to treat people when they ask a simple question then whats the point. You are just running them off. Why does everything have to be a joke.

    I just became disabled about a year ago from a major back injury that left me with limited movement in my legs and I cant work so I wanted to get involved with something and when I came on to this site I had a good feeling about learning more about the glock and the community of glocks and really enjoy this site. Alot of you guys have helped me with so much stuff like upgrades, the mechanism of the glock that I can work on my own guns. Its just really sad when I ask a simple question I get this.

    I agree with you. It was a legitimate question but some people saw the need to be jerks about it. Unfortunately, that's the nature of the beast here.....sometimes.
