Just for clarification, if I understand correctly Lounge access is granted automatically to members once they have a certain number of posts. It can be granted earlier by contacting one of the admins. Is this correct?

Thanks for the list. I suspect I'll be returning to it from time to time. Somebody went to a lot of work to put it together, I imagine.

As for the lounge, I'll check what/where that is later. Doing a search for 'lounge' got me more matches than I can look at for now.

Excellent list. We'll probably borrow it (and add some more terms to it) for all the new Black Friday visitors in a couple months.

Eeek! I can't take credit for the list! All I did was copy and pasted it on this thread from the link that BayHaySay provided. I c & ped it because the person was not able to see the GottaLounge at that time. The real credit belongs to the person who compiled the list originally and that is FireBabe: http://forums.gottad...ber.php?u=14701
