    Paying members of the forum to post would run counter to what I founded the forum on. There are probably some folks on here that should probably be paid for their time keeping this place the way it is (ToUtahNow) but it still remains a completely open and legit community.

    We have contacted a few handfuls of folks on here for the field testing of quite a few products. They work hard and spend a lot of their time giving us feedback. Sometimes they like the new product and sometimes they give us some feedback that is hard to swallow but ultimately makes a better product for everyone.

    You can thank this forum (as do we) for some of the new products that are out on the market now. A few products that have launched in the last few years have elements both big and small that were directly influenced by the forum. Field testing is extremely important to us and customer input is key in us "getting it right" There are actually hidden forum sections that groups of field testers participate on and discuss the field trials as well. Some of you have been parts of these.

    Thanks again everyone for keeping this forum what it is. And thank you for everything you guys and gals contribute.

            All,

            I was tied up for the last few days and just checked out the recent pages. Great to hear everyone chime in and thanks for the input!

            P.S. BTW, DirtyHands, you know I could never sink a putt like that again so I had to be bold...hope I'm not asked to make a repeat performance.
