Welcome Back

The Hip Talk Discussion Forum was hacked a few weeks back. It has taken me a long time to fix it. The only backup I could use was way back to April 2020. All members and posts up to that date are available. Anything newer has been lost. I am sorry, but that has been the only way to get things up and running again.

I need Some Points
« on: April 03, 2011, 07:04:10 PM »
Hey I just noticed some of us have one star, some have three. How do you get more stars? Pat, do I have to do a Surface Hippy Video or sing a song? I could do a remix of James Brown get on the good foot. How many stars in that worth?

The stars are rewarded to you by the software for making posts and replies.  I am not actually sure how many posts you need for each group of stars.  We are all stars so don't worry about it.  If you stay around a long time and post a lot, you will get more and help a lot of people. That's always a good thing to pass along your knowledge and experince.

You are a STAR in my book!   ::)

Star check...

I'm pretty sure it's just based on number of posts.  Something like 70 for two stars and 100 for 3?

Not just the number of stars, what about the colour? Why have Chuck and Pat got Purple and gold stars? Life just isn't fair, is it?

Chuck, not only have you got more stars, and they are purple, but they are are bigger too! Aren't they? Bigger! You have got bigger stars! There is definitely favouritism on this site. Shouldn't all stars be the same?

Where does this lead? Is it that BHR patients get more stars than C+? Do people wish Depuy have their stars canceled? Do bilaterals get more stars? That would not be fair, I cannot help it my right hip has not degenerated enough. I am a degenerate in general.

How about a system where the stars are colour coordinated to the device. And you can have no more than two stars. Well, how many hips have you got? Uncemented, ceramic and other specialties get extra emphasis, but no more stars. Mid section and mini hips get a diamond instead of a star.

The current system where the number of stars is related to the number of posts can't be right. You could post any old rubbish!

I am with Lopsided. What's really going on?  Poor Depuy patients. Why are my stars so small.  Is it related to the size of my incision. I got a 10". So what so of you have a 12"

Hey, since we are the youger. More competive group we need th channel our energy somewhere. How about a race to five stars? Anybody game?

Hey I am going to make a Music video about my experience post op and upload it on YOUTube.  Let's create the "Hippy Awards" It would be hilarious, lighten the load of recovery, and give me something to do. I'll get my kids involved.

Pat you should get one of the big HR companies to sponsor the "Hippy Awards." The winner gets....
