5 STAR IS THE GREATEST

When Linda Buquet started 5 Star Affiliate Marketing Forums she wanted a successful community. She had no idea it would become this successful as quickly as it has.

I have mentioned several times that I would love to see the membership reach 5,000 before the end of this year (2007). I came up with an idea and I was going to call it March to 5,000. Members would participate in special activities, until we reached that goal of 5,000 members this year.

I later thought that it might be a good idea to not just settle for 5,000 members by the end of this year. Aim for 6,000 or 7,000. The idea would be to have as many "quality members" as possible by the end of this year.

Linda does as much as she can to try to be helpful to members. She often types while in pain due to carpal tunnel. She has even mentioned that she sometimes types with her feet. I really don't understand how that is done.

I know she wants to have many more quality members. She doesn't want the type of members that are often attracted by membership drives with a contest to see who can get the most people to join. They often attract spammers and people who will only post one time.

This is a very helpful community and it is a very friendly community. I felt if something could be done to get members to know each other better and to have a little more fun, members might want to do as much as they can to help get more quality members to join. Having more members will help make 5 Star Affiliate Marketing Forums even better.

The purpose of this thread is to help 5 Star members get to know each other better and to have some fun. There will be humor, fun contests with no prizes, entertainment, games and much more. It might take a few days for you to get a good idea about all that will be done in this special thread.

Something different will be happening in this thread everyday. I hope you will make it a point to check this thread on a daily basis and to participate in it as often as you can while we see how many members we can get by the end of this year.

This will be a long march. I hope you will enjoy it. I know all of you like 5 Star and want it to be even better than it already is.

Let the fun begin

There were 4,076 members when I made this post.

Countdown to 5,000 Members ---- 924 to go

Probably the best way to get this started is with some humor. A little laughter will help us all feel better.

Add a funny video to this thread. Just make sure it is clean, in good taste and funny.

We all deserve to have some fun and enjoy a good laugh.

I will begin it with this from Johnny Carson.

Great idea Larwee. I hope we can all help her and the rest of you achieve this goal. Also a good first post kick off with the Johnny Carson clip. Funny thing is I actually remember that show airing on TV. I guess that really shows my age when so many people today don't even know who Johnny Carson was.

I've got an idea that might help spark a membership drive. If all of us that have blogs could do linkbacks to this thread that might be the ticket to getting the 900+ member count.

Gotta go. School starts back today and within the hour I'm going to have 250 newbie 6th graders roaming the halls at my school. I'll try to check back in later today.

Yeap, agree it's a great idea. Can't promise I can make it every day, but will try to as much as possible. :)

Guess I'm showin my age, too. :D Brings back some nice memories. Don't remember when exactly this aired but my Mom (bein the worry wart that she was) would wait up for me on my date nights a lot. (This was when I was pretty young.) Remeber quite often the two of us staying up some to watch tv. Not sure which came on first but my Dad used to be pretty strict and didn't let some tv shows on. (He'd be asleep by then) Her and I would then watch the show SOAP and we'd watch Johnny Carson. The animal shows with this guy and the woman I believe was from the San Diego zoo were always our favorites.:D Loved Johnny Carson anyway but shows with the animals were always the best:D

Thank you Larwee......great start to the week

psssst - I'll tell ya....is there anything Linda can't do?? Types with her toes???? Soon you'll be telling me she can type with her tongue, too. lol :):) Ya never know......she could be doin little tongue exercises getting it in shape so it's nice and strong and there she'll be one day....typing away with her tongue.:p ;)

In all seriousness....I know there are people who due to circumstances may not be able to type with their fingers and have had to learn other ways to do it....am in no way poking fun at them or anything. Have nothing but the most admiration and respect for those able to that. :) Would be nice to be able to type with my toes.....especially if I had two keyboards....I could get a whole lot more done.:)

RedHat39, I hope all the bloggers take you up on your suggestion. How about 10,000 members before the end of this year?

I hope you do check in as often as you can since there should be a lot going on and something different everyday.

Purplebear, I didn't make that up about Linda typing with her toes. Possibly it is her feet. But you get the general idea. She types with her fingers but also uses her feet or toes at times because of pain. As I said, I don't know exactly how it works.

I am glad you like this and I'm glad you will be checking in whenever you can.

LOL -- that makes two of us, Redhat! :D

Love the idea, Larwee and will do all I can to help! Will try to find a funny video, too...
Let's rumble!

I love this. Some kids put a skeleton hood on one sheep and it's scaring the others!

Great idea Larwee. Will do all I can. P.S. the two videos were fun, the one with the sheep reminds me of a cardboard owl we put up on halloween one year and it drove the cat nuts. P.P.S. I remember Carson too...lol.

Deb, I often like to do things a little differently than other people. That is why I took this approach. I am glad you like the idea.

I hope you will be checking this thread as often as you can. There will be something different everyday.

Hi Larwee

Great idea and it was good to see that you kicked off the funny clip with a monkey! Monkey clips alone will bring you in 924 members possibly even more.

Here is my favorite funny / monkey clip

Purplebear I knew you were a heart breaker!

Jamie, I guess that clip speaks for itself.

Glad you are participating and I hope you will check this thread as often as you can.

There will be a lot of different things going on and I'm sure you will want to get involved in many of them.

Oh what fun! Thanks so much for doing this Larry. What a great idea!

FOR THE RECORD - I don't type with my toes, don't think I'm that coordinated. :p

I just mouse click with my foot when my carpal gets really bad, since mouse clicking is one of the things that hurts the most. I have an old 2 button mouse, took out the roller ball so it can't move or point and put it on the floor. Then move with my hand, click with my foot. :)

Need to get some projects finished then am excited to go find a fun video to share with everyone. What a great team building idea Larry!

I knew it involved your foot, feet or toes in some manner. I got the details wrong about the typing but I guess I had the general idea.

I thought you would like this. I am glad to see that you do. It is also very good to see that the members like it.

This is going to be going on for a while with all types of different ideas. It should be a lot of fun.

Tomorrow's topic should be what can you do with your feet? Everyone submit photos of their feet :D

Glad you clarified Linda, I was trying to imagine someone actually typing with their toes and it seemed impossible...although I'm still tempted to try when I get home tonight :p

Typing with toes - it CAN be done - just not be me. :D

Wow Linda that is impressive. I could never do that as my big toe and the toe next to it do things in tandem and plus I have a spastic little toe that is twisted. Basically, I could never be a foot model.
