Topic: 50 Post Exception to the rule
Message: Posted by: kcalB (Jan 21, 2005 04:40PM)
When a professional performer joins The Magic Café and supplies a link to his website to be published along with an avatar, I strongly feel that it is sufficient proof of sincerity and the 50 post rule shoud be waived as a profesional courtesy.

Welcome, Sebastian!
I am under the impression that the 50 post rule is not about being "in the know". It is primarily about being a regular contributor to the Café - one of the magicians helping magicians, professional or otherwise.

Laughing Otter, Thanks for the welcome,...if as you say it's about magicians helping magicians, I wrote a lot of helpfull posts that didn't count on my tally of posts during the period when the site was under reconstruction by Gene.
The way I did this was by initiating and overseeing an online telethon to raise money for Gene to purchase a new monitor.We did raise a considerable amount of money in the short time that we had to work and it helped Gene who puts a lot of his own time into the Magic Café to do his work with a better tool.
At any rate once I get to 50 posts I will be offering some things for sale of my own creation.

Sebastian, Laughing Otter is correct. It's not just a matter of being someone in the know. There are many members on the Café who have more than a average knowledge of magic but who are not strictly professionals. The 50 post rules gives a member a chance to familiarize themselves with all the rules of the Café as well as give the staff a chance to get to know the member. It's like a training period if you will.

When Gene set up the temporary Café during the search engine conversion, he made it very clear that it was only temporary and had nothing to do with the real thing.

O.K. I got it now, It kinda reminds me of the courtship with my wife in a way.
50 dates before any real intimacy, See you in 35.
