I get more satisfaction from helping others than a small stroke of my ego, so points, titles or gifts are meaningless to me.  I came to China and suffered many adverse situations for lack of knowledge, and learned my way bumping my head with many obstacles.  If I can save others from the same fate, then I am rewarded enough.  And in the process of doing so, I have met many wonderful friends.

In doing so, I am very selective in which questions I answer.  Those that ask for advise or how to solve a problem or a situation, will get a reply from me, those that seek confrontations, or to prove that China is better or worse than any other country, will only get my silence.

That is the way I get my kicks, and I respect other members way to get theirs, just do not participate.  If you check my posting records, you will see that I answer as many questions as are asked each day, and in many occassions over 10 of them, for which I do not get points.

Now, if someday one of the gifts appeals to me, like for example free or discounted air travel, hotel stays, tour packages or even cruise ship cabins, then I will give consideration to cashing in some of the points accumulated.   Until then, I pay no attention to them.

Not at all. I'm here for fun and whether I have 5 or 5000 points will not make any difference.

I never consider the amount of points I have.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
