Reading these lofty titles leads one to believe the bequest should be via 'thanked' rating, rather than number of posts.

Anyone can punch a submit button 5000 times.

Unless this is the winner:

Unless this is the winner:
I think a good response to a query should be the weight. Not just the post count. The 'Thumbs UP' should be used to factor the value to the OP that the responder provided otherwise anyone( which they can) 'Thumbs UP' which should be a lesser value. I like jeremy's idea of 'KISS' here on LQ.

Quote:
excerpt 'guru';

A guru provides not just instruction but "guidance, protection, and grace." Until guru came into our language, we had no word for that most intense of leaders and teachers.
I do remember 'The village idiot' on Larry Lujack's radio show many many years ago. That's one funny guy! Resourceful, No. Funny, Yes!

At this point in time I don't have a suggestion for jeremy's request. My response to you was in that it is more than just pressing the submit button 5K times to me when participating here on LQ. I want to give back to the community as a lot of the other helpers do. Not everyone can afford the luxury of having the ability to pay for a help desk or responder.
