OOHHH, that's what PPT invited means...lol... I wondered what that meant.
I thought to myself, "Well it could be some kind of bonding thread/club, like the Royal Order of Water Buffalo's. But what if it's a miner's cult, or sect, or maybe it's private because they do kinky stuff on their panning  field trips." But if it's free, and if I don't have to spend time in a federal prison (again), then why not!!
I'm going to go check it out. Thanks guy's.

I heard that the initiation involves sliding down a 20' riffle sluice naked whilst shouting, "Pan, pan, rocker and sluice, set me up with some of that fermented juice!"
I might be wrong though ......

Hi.Guys.I will try to explain (PPT).It is something earned.Takes a whole lot of posts or some very good posts.Not every one is invited.Lets say someone makes a post regarding the use of Acids.It will be moved to PPT invited,so the general public can not see it.Those having PPT invited can veiw and comment on said post.The new comer will not see it..or be able too comment.There are many members that have lots of stars or awards that are not invited.Not sure how  they determine who gets this privlidge,But is earned not something you can apply for.Luck Mcbain.

Well then why isn't Peachland Joe a member, he's obviously on acid!!  <-hypnotized->
And I slide down lot's of stuff naked while highly fermented, and I'm not invited to your silly little immature sissy PPT thingy?
Joe you can join my new,  really fun, super duper secret thread. We call ourselves the "Non-PPT Live's Matter Club".

Too funny!! Considering that I have had 2 lightning strikes in camp today, your post was just what I needed to raise the humour around here. Cheers!

Ok, I'll accept your probably illegal "we hate Gordo" cult, but only because you work hard, and right now  you are on vacation!  <-good_> {-applause-}
You have 2 glorious weeks of the 3D's (Dig, dine and drink). Enjoy my friend.

Sense we are "beating on the dog" I might as well join in, the PPT board was set up due to the fact we have a large number of guests that hang out here and a large number of beginners also, it serves to restrict certain process's and or methods that truly do have a clear and present danger to anyone using
them. Members posts are screened in a relaxed way by the administrators of this site to get an idea of the general knowledge and attitude of the members, those that display what is accepted as common sense, knowledge of process's used in mining, legal aspects we all have to live under, and other
things they look for, all go into the process of who is invited, I have no part of any of this process, I did not request to be a PPT member, it was bestowed
upon me as was all the others on it. I have no problem keeping some members off that board and all guests for sure. There are peoples that will do anything to cause great harm and grief to miners anywhere and any how they can, and we as a group must be careful not to supply them with any information what would further there actions. These comments are mine and mine alone, if you agree with them, fine , if you disagree with them that's
fine also, everyone is entitled to there opinion and this is mine, if you wish to be on the member list of the PPT board , show that you should be there, and
you most likely will be same as the rest of us that are. Comments or question are welcome but be for warned, if you are only interested in negative
input, don't bother.

That's a good way to explain it XT, thanks.
The dangerous process's should be left to the experienced and safe miners.
BUT, that being said, us rookie miner's have waaay to much fun teasing you PPT relics, so you'll just have to go to Walmart and use your "sense of humour" coupon to buy a laugh or two!
And to be honest, when I read the word's "acid" or "mercury" in a thread, I immediately click the back button and go and read other interesting thread's. I'd like to find gold, but I am not DIEING to find gold, so those topic's are just a waste of time for me.
I am glad we discussed this though. Inhaling oxides and sulphides explains a lot about the crazy cast of characters on this site.  [email protected]*

I'm a little late to the conversation but that was a good explanation from XT18000.

So good in fact even I could understand it. LOL

Hi. welcome to the site.You are a new member.You should have read all the above posts on this topic..I will try to explain again.PPT is  for  topics we do not discuss on the open furum.Like using acids and chemicals,stuff that  could get some one hurt.Using mercury and acids are the type of things we only talk about in private.Hence the ppt.It is some thing you earn over time .You may get that status you might not.Most of us that have it never use it..It is much simplier to use the  private message thing.Luck Mcbain.

Hi.TOS. I am not sure how it works these days.Used to be it tookseveral hundred posts or something extraordinary to get invited.i do know it is something our moderator is currently working on with Admin..PPT was almost like A old boys club where invited members could discuss topics that were not meant for the general public to see.Hope that helps somewhat.Luck,Mcbain.

Its really all about grey wiskers ifn ya got some. 1 have you ever used a dial up phone. 2 do you type one finger at a time. 3 can you remember a duke film. if you can answer yes to any of these questions  your in then, just follow along with mc bains thred and after ya buy the coffee round and duly swearing your allegiance to the gods of rock. Throw a pinch of gold dust over your left shoulder /preferably in someones pan/ and welcome.
