Thank you shadowbuild, Doc Doom, and silentninja. I strongly respect your opinions on this. I understand more now why VIP is not allowed. It is something that should be earned and not easily given away through a request. I will close this now.
I am suggesting that VIP status be added to the allowed list of requests in the request forum. I am asking this because I have an idea I'd like to try out; I'd like to request for VIP. In my request I'd explain that I would "pay it forward" if the request is fulfilled. Meaning that I would then donate VIP to another member requesting it in the request forums. And hopefully he'd do the same. Of course the likelihood of anyone donating VIP is slim. But it's just an idea I had and I just want to get some input from the community.
