at this point BRM has 208.276 members but , unfortunetly maybe few hundreds are posting at regular base so it was a very good idea from BRM to let some regular posters participate in the freerolls at party poker . Think that in the future it would be a good idea to do more of such things for the regular posters .

agreed. In some ways it kind of annoys me how much of the free stuff (not the NDB's), but like mob safe/draw winnings goes to non-regs..
I reckon there should always be more incentive to post. Like free mob shots for example , why not ONLY award to those who post ? and you get more shots based on how many posts you've made in the last X days or whatever..
I don't want to encourage spamming or anything, but i like the BRM forums, one of my fav net forums, but they're pretty quiet and given how many members there are it shouldn't be like that.
I think rewarding the members more would be a good idea, BRM wouldn't even have to be giving away any more than they already do, but just favor those who actually contribute to the community a little more.

Hello everybody! I completely agree with you guys. it does little that be better for the quality of the forum to encourage as many people as possible to participate regularly and seriously. See you soon for new posts lol!
The other day the safe got up to $110 and was won by someone who hadnt made ONE post on here. he'd just taken the money from NDB and then waltzes off with a cool $110 whilst regulars who strive to enhance this site get nothing.
There should be a rule that says to complete in hte safe comp. you have to post daily as well.. If you dont post you dont get a chance to go for it.

I dont really care about the freerolls, as I dont have time to play them anyways lol. But you have to understand that BRM is not only posting into forum, Its mostly built up for NDB and most players are here because of that.
I think its a great site and I do like the forum much, thats the main reason im here - to chat with other poker fans

Hey all. You guys have to understand as well that with BRM it not just the forum and NDB but those of us who also deposit and are affiliates. Yes there are over 200k memebers but many do not as stated post, many rather use the other benifits to this site. I am sure that Tony and the BRM crew ,( for instance MobManager who never posts on here, I think he has 2 or 3 times), are aware of what you are saying, but lets be real here. BRM's bread and butter comes from those who deposit and not from posting on here. The benifits you get from posting on here are not only a great community but points that you can use or save for $50

OMG i voted NO. I personally think the affliates should get more as they are the ones who bring in the traffic, and as Dlkiv points out the dosh comes from the those who deposit, or at least stay at a site making good rake. So the likes of rakeraces would be best, BTW id never win one. But do think with dedecated tim i could kick affliate butt...but id rather play.

I agree some type of reward would be neat for regular posters. I guess 1 problem would be people that hit lets say 40$ on the safe and then post like a maniac to get up to the 5000 points and then will we ever see them again???

To all who are asking for better benifits to the reg. posters let me ask you this. Do you deposit on sites after taking a NDB from here? Have you had anyone join from your affilitae link? Have you made $$$$ for BRM in regards to rake etc? Overall what have you done for BRM,( as they do much for us everyday), to contribute a little back? I personally could list where I have deposited,( I use the NDB to check out a site and if I like it I deposit as well as the DB that are pretty awesome), have donated $$$ here to BRM members, am an affiliate,( lol though not very good in that department), and have generated plenty of rake.
So list what you have done aside from psoting here and collecting points etc that would warrent more privligaes?
