    Everyone knows that reaching a post count of 200 opens the door to the sales room, but once that’s been achieved what else can be aspired too ? I reckon it the “likes” count, and more importantly the mythical “likes : post ratio”. This seems to be a great way to gain credibility without doing anything credible !

    So please out them here. The posters of cat and dog photos, those changing watches for the evening just so they can hit WRUW twice a day, and all those ratting on post farmers to get the adoration of others !

    Is there actually any benefit to having lots of likes?

    I've heard that once you score 50.000 likes you can walk into a Rolex shop and exchange the likes for a ceramic watch. Any model.:whistling:

    I believe you can jump the queue. You get 10,000 likes per non-desirable Rolex bought from an AD at full retail price.

    This thread is like listening to a teenager, like, where every second word, like, has to have like in it....
    For that, I'm not giving the OP a 'like'.
    But feel free to like my post, as it validates my existence like nothing else can :D

    Farming for likes is something that I dislike. It's wrong...

    Anyway, did I show you guys this cute photo of a puppy with a bow tie ?

    I wonder if a huge number of "Likes" could be generated with a financial incentive.

    Maybe hold a monthly contest that the person giving you the most "Likes" that month wins a prize.

    The prize could be something small, like a pair of genuine Omega Spring Bars.

    This would probably create hundreds (maybe even thousands) of extra "Likes" every month. :)

    Yes, the sun shines a little brighter on you and there is a certain spring in your step recognisable only to true Omega lovers.

    What would be really interesting would be if the mods introduced a "dislike" option.
    I can just imagine my likes to dislikes ratio. :eek:

    I'd say the ratio would be 1:1, asuming you dump your 3,715 current likes and start from scratch.

    ;)
