    Although much great fun can be had in so many of these "feel good" threads

    I would very much like to see more of the substancial information elements

    I understand that it will take some time to accumulate some depth of knowledge

    but I believe that we all need to focus on more pertinent "stuff"

    Its starting to build. For example the Delta, JAL, Hilton and Hyatt forums, and many of the others for the biggest programs, have a good amount of substance building up; rental car and the smaller programs are still very weak areas.

    Another month or two and I think this place will be quite well rounded. Or at least, rotund.

    The "beef" can be found many places (even for a vegetarian like me).
    The destination threads with all their pictures are fantastic.
    As new folks find MP and ask questions, content will automatically build.
    And personally I hope that MP never ever becomes an info only place. Way too dry for me!

    We are fortunate now to have MP, FT and so many other websites. No one place can do it all.

    Glad to see this got moved. Seems we have some busy mods today.

    As for where's the beef? Content is growing. You don't want it rushed or the content will be lesser quality

    I'm happy with the content I see building considering the site is officially only a week old.

    The game and "feel good" threads attract folks and many of them will also add content to the miles and points threads.

    Let's see what this site looks like a year from now. I'm betting it will be vastly different....and in a positive manner....than it is today.

    From the title, I thought this would be a thread about the lack of cow and bull avatars relative to all the cats, dogs, and other animals. When I started to read the OP, I thought this would be about grain-fed versus grass-fed steak or the geographic origins of good prime rib. Instead, it's a vague compalint about the start of MP. I'm disappointed by the content in this thread.

    I think we're horning in on the issue, and we can easily steer things in the right direction and fatten up milepoint.

    We don't want to farm out the job when we can do it all ourselves.

    Yes, I'm getting quite experienced in spreading chicken sh*t and working for chicken feed, as well as meaningless crowing and running around aimlessly like a chicken with it's head cut off; I'm sure that, as we move forward, those skills will be quite appreciated here.

    If you think that's funny, you'd better hope Canarsie doesn't spot this thread- he'll bust your chops.

    And considering the every widening variety of creatures I see running around MP, we can be assured of an enormous diversity of manure.
    It is my humble opinion that diverse manure will lead to a higher yield of crops and the ability to sustain a ever growing herd of beef cattle.
    I'm just worried about fitting all those highly fattened cows, chickens, etc into first class.
    Some airlines are gonna see a lot of stuff hitting their ventilation systems, if you know what I mean.

    Oh damn, I just realized the OP is a large lion. He probably just started this thread hoping to find his next meal!

    I have a ready solution, driven by my veagn compulsions. Use a litle soy cream, it makes all the grains so much more moist and refreshing, mashed beets also help a lot.

    that is what you meant is is not? [​IMG]

    iI detest dry sights or dry sites or dry venues. I guess I spent too much time in Saudi/
