    How many members are active both here and on TOBB? (at least I know that that means)... I barely have enough time for MP, but I'm curious how much cross traffic there is. (i.e., am I mostly "covered" by just participating on MP)?

    I used to follow but honestly on the forums I followed it has turned into a whine and beatch fest so I do very little there now.

    Ditto for the most part. It's way too hard to follow along over there and I prefer the helpfulness of the members here :)

    Milepoint for me. No use of other sites.

    There's more info there but more community here, so I participate at both locations.

    Good to know. I feel like if MP is supposed to be a community,where you connect, learn the laws of the land, and make a contribution, it's awful tough to do that in two similar communities at once. Sorts like being a Jet and a Shark. For now, I'm gonna be a Jet (MP)...

    I participate on both sites. But I do have about ten times more posts on MP despite having been on FT longer. But there is lots of good info on FT(found one tidbit which saved me $250 on a recent car rental), and I have found a few places where I can have fun over there and avoid most of the snarkiness.
    So, I am grateful to have both sites to learn from and participate in.

    I started my FF blog reading on TOBB but walked away when MP began...as others have already said...this is a community...TOBB is a group of DYKWIA folks that are more arrogant than...

    I play on both, but spend more time here. Like miles and smiles, there are some areas on TOBB that are snarkfree.

    I'll cut to the chase.

    Unless you're going on MegaDo, most of the topics here have little to no new action. If I check Flyertalk, there are lots of new topics in the forums that I read. When I check Milepoint, there are very few new threads.

    How would Randy tackle this? If you've been reading Randy as long as I have (1988 - Inside Flyer), I'm sure he'd say that if everyone reading this would post 1 new thread in the forum of their choice (MP has over 70,000 members),
    there would be hundreds of new, valuable, and informative posts on milepoint. That will have a domino affect on all the forums here.

    Solution:

    Post a link to the thread that you start. This will encourage others to follow. :cool:

    I'll start... http://milepoint.com/forums/threads...-the-chase-credit-card-on-an-award-tix.44617/

    I may be more of the former than the latter; probably why I haven't subjected you to my presence on a BRT.

    Not to worry, I've had 'difficult' riders in the past. :p

    I haven't plumbed the depths of TOBB since I felt that they had zero respect for PMCO Million Milers. I did not want to try to explain to them that most of us actually did fly a million BIS miles on CO metal. Some of them seemed convinced that the most any of us had flown was a handful of flights on the Concorde. I really do not have time for conversations that are not constructive or at least funny in a positive way.
    As an aside, shouldn't it be VSLdbaVAL?

    Lurk on both, but the advice of dhammer53 may be the kick in the pants I need to become more active in a useful way.

    I participate on both, but I'm not a guru. Maybe one day. I pay attention, avoid drama, apply useful lessons, and share when applicable.

    Mrs. Sendbillmoney approves of this hobby of mine because my family has benefited from my knowing how the pieces fit together.

    It seems common for the folks on here to be active on TOBB, with little negative fanfare. What about regulars on TOBB also being active on MP; is that a recipe for being labeled "persona non grata"?

    Speaking for myself, no. The intelligencer on this board has a high tolerance level for some of us. :D

    I post only here because I have slowly learned civility from the MP participants without a "moderator" to teach it to me.:)
