Well, I think most of us Mods and Jeremy have gmail accounts already. I think at one point we were all hit with invites to give away ourselves and I think finegan has like 5.. he was being a bit of a gmail hog since he wanted to experiment with gmailFS..

Maybe you could just bribe members if they want one, they have to earn it by posting something in the HCL or put up a Review..

Even though I already have one, I feel a bit appreciated . By the way, how do you become a Senior Member? I don't see it as a selection for my rank...

HCL

I would be interested in a Gmail invite But I also have a couple questions as well. I've been messing with linux a while now (fedora, suse, slack), I haven't really posted much cause I still consider myself a noob. But I love linux, especially fedora. Funny thing is that that is the first time I have really looked at the HCL.
Wow very nice and informative.
I posted about my printer after doing a search for it and it didn't show it listed.
So now my question. Could someone check the above link and make sure I filled that out right? I have a couple more I can add but want to make sure I', doing it right first.

Thanks!
Crane

Actually I would think 5k posts is easier to get to in less amount of time nowadays.. we have more members, more threads/posts/questions created and so on..

I remember the days when I would login at the end of the day, 24 hours would have passed by and there would be 30 to 50 new posts. Now I go 24 hours without logging in and its reaching almost 2k posts in one day...

To Email other members, note that you can click on the "profile" button of a member, then click on the "Send Email" link. That approach does not require that a person publicly announce his/her Email in a post -- J.W.
