    I am sure many of you do know the SPG and HH lurkers from FT and always appreciate their help and input. What are your thoughts about inviting them also to join MP? If many of you support this idea, I would be more than happy to drop them an email. In addition to this maybe some of you do have a contact with some other hotel and airline lurker?

    Any knowledgeable person who can help with concerns/questions is most welcome IMHO. It is all about community and links to the airlines/hotels/ etc

    I think that all the concierges and lurkers from there will wind up here--the smart ones at least...;)

    I'm sure they will all be over here soon enough. They are trying to provide that extra level of support for their customers, so it would logically make sense.

    Actually we did some research against several of them over the past few weeks and are creating a small program of expectations and consistency for them—properly identified with a custom title for all lurkers, etc. We likely won't introduce that until right before launch as we still want to focus on the needs of these members first—make technology work and build great and compelling content and features. But they will be welcomed as we always want to find ways to ensure customers get customer service. Good question, thanks.

    If CO Insider is not welcome here, neither am I. [​IMG]

    Seriously......the Lurkers have always been a very welcoming and helpful presence on Flyertalk, so I hope they are welcomed over here, too.

    Actually, he would tell you that we asked his advice for MilePoint and he pledged total support for the members here—so you are stuck with us.

    I love how Randy pops up with his well thought out answers to so many questions. MP is going to be great!

    Superb news!

    I hope that MilePoint proactively reaches out to lots of airlines and hotels to establish a semi-official presence here in a similar capacity as whats been going on for sometime at that 'other' place.

    I just hope that Delta sends us Deltalina and not Shen Anna Ginz.

    I certainly wouldn't object to Deltalina (here posing with a soon-to-be-legendary (at least in his own mind) MilePointer:
