    I sometimes wonder about that. I wonder if there's anyway we could send a monthly e-mail or something to people. It would have to go through Wiz of course. I'm guessing the idea wouldn't go over very well though. IDK.

    I 2nd that!

    Congrats to those who made the stones list tonight, nice list. :D

    Like to all the team members? What would the email say?
    brandonwh64 says thanks.

    Not much. How's it hangin'. Maybe a few interesting stats (I know some of the guys here can do shit like that from memory :D ). Show any new badges available, new projects. Basic stuff. Short and sweet.

    Funny this conversation is a happening. Yesterday at work I was thinking of something similar as I pass all these idle members who have zero's. I also imagine what kind of ppd's the team would be getting if they all came back at the same time.

    I can dream can't I? :ohwell:

    I'll bring this up to W1z later, never hurts to ask heh? ...This is a great idea and I'm sure after some emails a few members might come back at least for a bit.

    Maybe if it's worded real polite like "hey we missed you all. We're just sending this greeting to see how you are and bla bla bla sentimental stuff" you know...nothing intense. :laugh:

    I mean, if I received a PM like that I would have joined back in the forum at least even though my temps were too high too crunch 24/7.

    Anyway, I got a computer to build...so off to work I go!!!

    Damn... lost my Thanks button :rolleyes:

    How about adding into the message:
    - team position (this month on the 1st of the month)
    - team position (last month on the 1st of the month)
    Maybe W1zz can cache these 2 pages on the site with a link we can send out in a monthly message. I'm not sure how that's done or how much trouble it would be??? W1zz did say at one point that there was some extra space available for storage.

    We don't have to say much but seeing your position drop each month from not contributing may be enough to inspire the idle members to contribute again. :)

    And we can always do it as an opt-in sort of deal by adding something to the user options panel in the control panel.

    Hmm, this is a great idea!!! A monthly news letter, so to speak. As for space CP, you might mention to W1zz that if he has a problem with that I would be more than happy to dedicated an unlimited secure FTP for the cause. I could get that set up pretty easy and give you, being the captain, and whom ever it is that contributes monthly news the login information to the ftp.

    We could also set up a mass email base so it would just be a push of the button to send it to all the WCG TechPowerUp members each month. Would not be all that hard to get set up. Hell we could even put some of the current member cruncher builds with images in the news letter as well. Might help inspire some of the inactive members to find parts. :)

    Oh hell, we could even include exclusive team member parts available only for active WCG members in the news letter!............Holy crap, now I am excited about this. LOLOLOL

    You guys want to PM me your ideas so I can gather an example together before submitting it?
  14. twilyth Guest

    Maybe you should just run the general idea past wiz first - otherwise there's no point in doing any prep work. JMHO though.

    Yep I agree. Maybe just run it past him as being a general WCG news letter to help get inactive members excited again about crunching for the best damn WCG team on the net. :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Thanks Stinger it is very appreciated when our efforts are noticed. :toast:


    I want to give a big thank-you to all that have helped with parts and such for my crunching rigs.

    Especially Stinger, Norton, and Cp.
    Stinger buddy, I just noticed all four of my main crunchers have at least 1 part I have gotten from you. :toast:
    Norton bud, My top cruncher is mostly parts I got from you and atleast one more has parts from you.

    Cp if it wasn't for your generosity my newest cruncher would be coming to life this very moment.

    There are more folks from here I have gotten parts from to bring these rigs to life. Thanks you all very much.




    Also tell them they are about to lose there spots to some newbs. :roll:
    stinger608 and ChaoticAtmosphere say thanks.

    As far as the News letter goes. The mailling list will take alot of work. Out of the 361 members a few have been guest from XS and other teams that registered with TPU but have now left, also a few TPU members have been banned from TPU that crunched with us, also saddly a few have passed on.:cry:

    You have a good point Mike. It will take some effort to "weed" through the list for sure. As you said, some have been banned and unfortunately some have passed. :cry:

    None the less, I think with some work we could get a good list of 100 to 200 that many are still active in the community and have just let things slip, if you will. I think it is worth the effort after hearing what Mindweaver had to say about his pop. :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    However, wouldn't the list be for inactive members? If members no longer are on our team, I don't think we need to send it to them???

    As far as members passing on, not only stan but you can't forget loonym. :respect: :respect: :respect:

    Also, I think I can say that I might have another rig online very soon thanks to acts from members of this forum/team. I mean, I'm speechless, I don't know what to say or how to thank anymore. I just wish I had time and money to meet all of you in person, like you guys have to be bots or something. Don't think people like you'll exist nowadays! :respect::respect::respect:
    Norton says thanks.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I couldn't agree more CP. I have never met a group of people that as friendly, giving, or compasionate as you guys. You guys have made me want to strive to be a better person myself. If theres anything I can do for anyone let me know and I'll do the best I can. :respect:
