Probably within minutes or hours Mighty Emperor should be the first to earn (and he's probably deserved many more) 200 GetSatisfaction/IMDb stars, for great answers, many of which probably took a lot of thought and hunting/pecking around to resolve.

He should be awarded an IMDb coffee mug (beer mug? Wine glass?) or T-shirt!

That brings up another idea...IMDb should offer that stuff for sale...on Amazon would be the obvious place!

I know I'd pick up some (my wife would love it! >sarcasm Icon<

Nice job Mighty Emperor! https://getsatisfaction.com/people/mi...

Indeed. One can also box off half a dozen a day with links to the contributors guide (favourites being: name merge and uncredited roles).

I thought the recent tomfoolery rather made the while star thing not worth tracking any more.

Not that I'm not on for a bit of friendly competition!!

He'll look good in a, "Do?...I do nothing...that's the beauty of it!" T-Shirt with the IMDb logo!

Just three likes for this idea. Well, three likes is better than being called "unpaid flunkies" and well, whatever Tupac would call us (that could get me censored for mentioning).

Great Job Dan!

Well there is the opportunity for a whole series of T-shirts:

* "Unpaid flunky"
* "I pick the low hanging fruit (but sometimes the fruits pick me)"
* "I'm highly intelligent (a crazy person on an Internet forum told me so)"
* "I deleted your posts because they were there"
* "Helping people on the Internet - the gift that keeps on giving (me ballache)"

Great job, Michelle (and GC too), I am sure staffers are less likely to get the stars, so that's a heck of an achievement! I hope Tom https://getsatisfaction.com/people/th... didn't hoard all the coffee mugs (haven't seen a t-shirt yet)!

LOL, okay, hotshot. I dare you to answer the next question before it's asked!

(Odds are, though, it's "I have two pages, how do I merge them? Followed closely by, "I can't authenticate by cp, and I refuse to give cc#, what should I do?)

I appreciate the thought...but I have been here active for a few days since I'm working from home and a bit limited in movement from a recent op...in order words I have found an excuse for being online as much as I am.

Thanks though....but for this (and some other reasons), I'm happy to remain just a user!

Even though he may protest otherwise, bob the moo has functioned as an IMDb Champion for longer than either of us would like to admit. I am very happy to see bob offer his sage advice here on Get Satisfaction. I hope when he recovers from his operation, he will continue to grace Get Satisfaction with his presence.

Mayor Defacto should also be recognized as an IMDb Champion. I have had the privilege of channeling his sage advice to IMDb's Get Satisfaction site on a few dozen occasions. I frequently learn something new and useful about IMDb when I channel that information.

I've done the Mayor Defacto thing a few times and agree.  I even, when in the middle of a thread, though..."I wonder if Mayor Defacto has seen this and messaged me," clicked on my PM's and sure enough...the answer was there!  It was amazing.  Of course, there have been a few that I didn't see until too late...
