CBN means nothing to me, and frankly you're the only one whose made a big deal about it. If a rank is that important to you, then maybe you should post answers to questions and problems. That'll get my respect more then whining about ranks and vendor status.
Well maybe I did go a little over board on the lounge post....But you try to run a store, have a family, work a full time job, & ANSWER QUESTIONS from no less than 6 OTHER FORUMS besides this one! PLUS, answer questions from 2 newgroups & personal addressed emails too! The point I was trying to make in the lounge was that I wasn't happy with the way the CBN rank was made. As it happens, only very few people were even effected by that rank anyways....Nothing against the newer members here, but I don't claim to POST ***** MY WAY TO THE TOP as others do & have done on this forum. I think Mike has said the rest quite well.

If he doesn't have the information he usually doesn't answer it.
As for this vendor thing it is fairly simple. If a person wants to be recognized as a vendor they should be able to prove that they poses a business license and have some kind of place that they sell product as in an online store or a real physical store.
My time is precious to me, as I don't have enough waking hours to achieve even a third of what I like & need to do as it is! Yes, the CBN rank WAS important to me! As I felt I earned it! Yes I feel the Vendor Statis is important too, as I have set up my own store on-line & @ home too, complete with ALL the legalities done & paid for. These include, Business License to Operate a business within Canada; GST registration to collect GST; Import License; Export License; Business Bank accounts; Business VISA card; Business PayPal account; plus Suppliers that I have Charge Accounts with & others I pay by VISA/PayPal. So I feel I have earned the title of VENDOR too.
I do however fully agree with the Adminstration of this Forum as to their decission for not having the Vendor Rank too though. I do feel if offered, I would & know others too, would gladly PAY to be a Sponsored Vendor of this Forum too. But i see their reasons for not having it that way too.
