Title: technician-BEST of the BEST
Post by: viking351 on July 16, 2009, 12:46:50 PM
AJ
your give away contests are nice for the DIY but what about the TECH's?
Lets do a contest that rewards them= the best of the best.
I'm a chartered member and not against spending my money for good advice.
I'm willing to donate via PAY PAL $10 and hopefully the other DIY are willing to do the same to reward the TECH with the best track record, who is he? who has been the most helpfull?
JW, jumptrout, whirlpool tech, repairman..yeah who just to name a few).
if we can get 20-30 DIY to donate its a nice reward of $200-300 dollar gift card for the best tech.
regards

While it is nice to be recognized, my reward comes from helping someone else help themselves.
Everytime I get a new karma I perk right up knowing someone was satisfied.

How would that be decided and by who?

It's a nice thought, but to reward one person and call them the best because of someone personal opinion is not a good idea.

Technicians have the option to put there paypal info in there profile so the beer mug shows up under there username. This way other members can reward them as they see fit by making a paypal donation to the technicians personal paypal account.

Anyone can enter AJ's random giveaways including the technicians.

I know that AJ did do something at one time for the technicians using the money that was donated through charter memberships and other site donations.

From what I recall there were hard feelings at that time because of the technician the money went to.

Some technicians are more active on the forums then other, but all technicians are very helpful.

It's a nice thought but I think it would be hard to do without being fair to everyone that helps out here.

my father had a electrical business and when his customers asked for advice on  appliance repair , as a young man i would be the one he sent on a "FIX".
i remember replacing a "WIG_WAG or a drive belt (drop the trans thread the belt through the SPACER and what a nightmare.)
i did not want to be DISREPECTFULL.
I withdraw my suggestion.

certain brands (Asko, Bosch, F&P, etc)

Glad you withdrew the suggestion...

None of us here require any special recognition other than the occasional visitor who is grateful enough to reward us with a donation. I honestly think most people who gained help here would not mind giving up $5 0r $10 to the tech who did them the most good, but they don't know how the donation thing works. Maybe Mr Capone can make this part of his intro paragraph when people register to post.

Certainly within our own ranks, we have technician with all different skill levels, so they can generate the same donations by providing excellent and pertinent information on their specific expertise. It is when we get superfluous posts and off-topic comments that begin to degrade the visitor confidence in our abilities.

While it is a good idea to keep on track and try our utmost to relay our best answer in all respect, if we cannot have any fun doing it then what is the point? None of us that come in here are going to get rich by contributing what we know to this forum. The best thing that we can get is the knowledge gained by butting our heads together. When there is no skillful direction, the people fall; but there is salvation in the multitude of counselors. I am learning everyday. I only thought I knew something. That reminds me of an old saying:
 "I used to think I knew I knew;
but now I must confess,
the more I know I know;
 I know I know the less."
