    Well Sr. Movieman, I think we've ruined this thread enough
    agreed, so I'll toss in something(hopefully) usefull.
    I don't think there's an XIP outside of a company rep that knew it was coming or expected it. I didn't. I was shocked and thought Charles was tapping the bottle that night.
    All I can see is you do what you can to help people, try and keep your temper( And I do have a bad one) and treat the people as friends that you haven't met yet.
    way too much bickering on this forum and mostly over really dumb stuff.

    I agree, people argue over stuff that really isn't worth arguing over.
    So... I'm not gonna argue the point that your CPU IS better than mine!

    I am surprised this thread is back on topic after the WCG guys started posting :P

    To become a XIP shouldnt be your goal when posting at XS. Your goal should be to help as many people out as possible and contribute useful stuff to the community. The XIP title can be seen as some kind of thank you for your efforts.
    And apart from the blue name, nothing really changes, so dont overdo it

    Very well put. The only thing I would change is the word reward to a Thank you from the staff for helping. That's how I saw it.

    WCG guys? HEY we are NOT the only ones that take threads off topic, just we have our own section for doing it ;-). So if a thread is in that section its fair game, but give it that so many threads are pirated by ANYONE.

    Fr3ak don't worry a title like that doesn't influence me at all.
    I post when I think I have something to input.

    Meh I've been wrong a few times.

    Wow. Some of you misinterpreted what I was asking. I thought it was some sort of dues thing. If you paid you were an XIP, and got privileges of some kind. Like private forums and stuff like that. I just wondered why there were so many different colored names is all. I'm not looking for anything other than information about something I am interested in, and sharing what little knowledge I've gained over the years. I just thought XIP's got to be more involved and seemed to know one another. All I guess I'm really looking for is a way to contribute as much as I can, and I thought you had to be an XIP to do so. I have learned more in my short time as a member of this forum than I've learned in 2 years at my job. Now I know all I have to do is post to contribute, well post relevant info and not crap. I'll try to keep the crap threads to a minimal from now on.

    Pretty much, share info, don't flame, hang out, take and give the verbal exchanges with a grin, and if you are promoted, cheers, if not, well.........maybe in the future.

    It seems the ones that become XIP, usually don't know it, till the rest of the forum does

    Xtremesystems "XIP" Requirements

    Here is what the moderators and staff look for when appointing X.I.P.: (In order of importance)

    1. A willingness to help others, particularly when an individual has little personal interest in the topic or problem. Like helping those when they ask questions that have been asked many many times.
    2. A demonstrated patience and reserve in dealing with disagreeable people.
    3. The ability to discuss or disagree in a topic on the basis of REASON rather than personal attacks.
    4. Knowledge in overclocking and computers in general.
    5. At least a little bit of time on the forums, 3 to 4 months at least.

    XIP just means you're at least semi intelligent and don't cause "problems". If you get a message on AIM/MSN from a super mod saying you're on the verge of being perma banned, you can basically forget about getting it

    Also, XIP has nothing to do with overclocking or benchmarking.

    They seem to like the XIPs to conform and not really disagree about things at all in general, it is very easy for anyone to take a disagreement (like the XS PSOM discussion of ST560ZF/OCZ 700wGX) where perkam and I disagreed on a few things, yet I ended up buying a ST560ZF(and it rocks), and later a ST850ZF(and its amazing) and perky bought a OCZ 700w GX. How ironic?

    Yup, common misconception....XIP is a the equivalent to an "XS VIP"....doesn't have to be a WR bencher, that's what most Legends are (and the easiest way to become a Legend). XIP can range from a long-standing member, to a manu rep, to an up-and-coming great bencher we'd like to recognize, to someone with great connections and market insight, to a friendly personality that's just easy to get along with and everyone likes

    Huh? XIP can disagree all they want. We ultimately pick people we like and in the end that results in a group of people that tend to agree, but there's NOTHING saying they have to agree.

    Whatever disagreements there were between you and Perkam have nothing to do with XIP....

    Thanks for answering my questions guys. I never thought this thread would go on for so long. Now I want to know what each color means That may take a while to find out, unless there is some sort of color chart. Kind of like our "National warning system" you know magenta is worse than mauve...that sort of thing...Then we can debate on what the best color is
