          16. Attend, meet and network with the like minded members from PT.

          17. Post interesting news articles that may be of interest to members.

          18. Contribute to a thread if you are well informed on the subject.

          19. Ignore the extremely negative, emotional, one eyed members unless you like to waste energy arguing with idiots.

          20. Give back to the PT community if you have been helped in some way.

                23. Inform and entertain us with anecdotes from the Tenant front line.

                24. Ask searching questions to make us ponder how much or little we know - but remember to give us the answer!

                25. Support the advertisers - they keep PT Free and on air.

                  It implies we should all read and click the advertisements?

                      27. The tune " Dont worry...be happy" plays everytime you log into PT.

                      28. Every time you log off PT Donna's voice sings "Chim-chiminy,
                      Chim-chiminy. Chim-Chim-Cherooo" as we skip towards the kitchen for a cup of delightful green tea.

                        29. Post updates on progress after your initial posting - e.g. what happened at the tribunal, what structure did you end up with, did you get that deal?

                        30. (Within the rules) highlight bad and/or unethical practices within the industry, so that people know that if its on PropertyTalk.com "it must be true".

                          31. Consider contributing to the PT Wiki. Should you find such
                          a prospect a bit overawing, some PT folks who are already
                          involved will help you. Just ask.
