I am looking for at least 52 forum members who are willing to make a genuine commitment to this community by creating no less than one new thread per week. And I'm not talking about just any old thread either. I'm looking for threads that create interest, provoke new ideas, share success/failure (that's how we learn), or something just make us laugh. Just ONE per week. One really thoughtful thread.

There are 52 Cards in a deck; 54 if you count the Jokers.

Pick a card. Any card (unless the card has been taken). I'll send something special to all 52 (or 54) of you.

Will you join me?

Hans,

Thanks for the compliment! I think I'll pass. It would work for me, but someone else may find it a better fit, so I'll leave it for them.

I really appreciate the offer though, and if it's okay I may still use one of my playing card themed custom avatars from time to time. (The back of the card; not the face.) Again, great idea my friend.

Short story time.

My dad was a professional photographer and movie maker. He never did any model photography, though I know he would have been great at it. I have always liked photography too. As I got older, what I really wanted to do was photograph nudes. Not smut, but real nude model photography.

But it never really got going before digital was available. In the age of film, Kodachrome was king and I shot a lot of it, but I could not afford a color darkroom and I could not afford high end processing. You see, if you do any kind of nude photography and don't send it to a very high end processing lab you would lose your film and stand a pretty good chance of talking to the cops. The local drug store and it's employees just couldn't handle it. So, there was no point in pursuing it because I wanted color.

Enter the digital camera. No more pimply faced local clerks pawing over your slides or prints. Everything can be done in-house with just you, your model and your computer.

I had the good fortune to find a few amateur models whom I paid well (and secured releases from).

One of my projects was comparing the curves of the models to the curves of guitars.

My card in Han's project is the Ace of Hearts. So I thought I'd see if I could adapt a couple of my shots with appropriately placed hearts to keep it within the confines of the forum.

If these are still too much and this post gets nuked, I understand. I'm not trying to push the limits here, just looking to entertain - hopefully within the forum guidelines.

This is incredible Lloyd, where did you find it?

I use lots of different search engines; this one was Bing. I found the image and worked on it some. It started as a regular playing card style with one character upside down under the other. (Wait, that sounds odd...) Technically I 'borrowed' it, but hopefully the artist won't mind too much since I'm (A) not claiming ownership, and (B) not using it commercially.

There's always somebody looking for a loop hole - but I am in.
Though I think this idea is a winner and by the time some of the players start running out of ideas there will be enough momentum that the cards won't be necessary any more.

Me too. I find it fascinating that so many people have used their card as a way to define their persona.

At first, there was the mad rush for vintage pin-up girls. Now people are starting to experiment - make their own cards - or change them daily like a pair of socks.

Rule question: I have three topics planned waiting in the wings. I was wondering, if I start them all at once, then go through a dry spell the next three weeks, is that a "rule violation"?

Hell, there are some people who made the commitment, took a card, and haven't done a thing.

Yet...

There are no rules, John. Your contribution is voluntary and appreciated (however and whenever that happens).

Cool. Well, since this little experiment has started, this forum has become the place to be. So, whether or not all 54 folks live up to the commitment, enough of the cards are doing so to make this happen. Thanks for doing it!!

If you have three in the bag, you'll probably think of something else. Post them.

Dear Card Holders,

When we started the "Pick A Card" program last November, the Official PRS Forum was sputtering along. I don't think there is any doubt, now, that we achieved a level of activity that is self-sustaining. Hell, I log in some mornings and have to click the [More Activity] button (in the "What's New" section) 3 or 4 times to see all of the recent posts. That is due, in large part, to you and your commitment to making this community thrive.

We are approaching our 1st Birthday (the 23rd of April). On that day I formally release you from your promise to start one meaningful thread per week. It is my hope that you keep your card, even if you change your avatar, as a reminder of something we built together.

In the US Navy there is a long tradition of recognizing the 1st crew of a newly commissioned ship by issuing Plank Ownership. The origin of the term (Plank Owner) is the implication that a crew member was around when a ship was being built and commissioned. No matter where the sailer goes after his assignment, he will always be a Plank Owner of that ship.

Shawn, Jamie, and I discussed this concept at length shortly after PRS Guitars opened the doors to this place. I can think of no better way to recognize your willingness to take a card (especially since it was so hard to give all 54 away) than to offer you this small token of gratitude. From this day forward you will all be known as Plank Owners.

As most of you know, there is one last card in the deck; the Fine Print Card (http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthread.php?3294-What-If). I am awarding that card to CoreyT for 2 reasons:
1) Nine times out of ten, he is the fist person to report a SPAM thread
2) He has the most posts of any non-card holding member

I hope you guys have enjoyed this challenge as much as I have. I really do appreciate all of your help and I'm looking forward to having a beer with you in September.

Fly your flags high as you carry out the final days of your original mission!

~Hans

Hans, thank you for the time and effort you have put into the forum. A large amount of it's success is due to the work you've done here. Thank you.

Card Holders- Thank you for your participation. It's been a fun 11 months and I look forward to continuing this relationship long into the future.

Hans - thank you so much for everything you've done. If it wasn't for you, I don't think Paul and company would have realized how empty we were without BAM or the urgency to create a PRS community like this.

Shawn - cheers to you for taking time out of your busy day for providing us with an inside view of the factory that we normally wouldnt see. This content alone I am sure brings people here daily. Combine that with your years of knowledge regarding PRS guitars and PTC work you are a priceless part of why we love this place. You're always willing to help people and its things like this that bring people back to PRS guitars - you don't get this treatment with other brands and thats a fact.

Most importantly I have to say a big thank you to everyone else - literally - all of you. We were given a new forum and place to call home but lets face it, new things can sometimes be weird. After BAM went down I felt a huge void in my day to day life and an immediate disconnect with people I enjoyed talking to but in our short existence you've helped create a forum that means as much as to me as any other I visit. There is hardly any bickering, with plenty of content and mature conversations. We may not all agree on everything, but you've all acted like gentleman (and ladies?) and its a fine representation of the brand we love.

Lastly thanks to James for building us our kingdom. You've created an amazing place and we appreciate all your work!

I look forward sharing a beer and laughs with every member at Experience this year!

Hans and others, thank you very much, I feel honored!

I remember when I first joined here after doing research on my first PRS, the SE Santana.
This place was kind of slow being a new forum when I first joined, but with Hans card thread, and the hard work of all the members here this place has grown into a very busy place.
Plus with the new link on the PRS homepage, it shows others looking at PRS guitars there is an established community here to get more info.

I find myself checking this place many times a day while on breaks at work, and from home.
This place is really growing too with new members all the time.

This has got to be one of the politest guitar forums I have been on too.
And the sheer knowledge of the members here is outstanding.
After taking a thirty year break from playing guitars and getting serious GAS for more, this site has helped me out a lot and making my wallet lighter :D
I had never heard of PRS before until last summer when I wanted to get a second guitar after getting my SG last May.
Now my wall of tone has five guitars hanging on it, plus a 408 on the way here very soon.

Thanks again everyone,

PRS ROCKS!

I was also never a member of BaM. So, I was spared the pain I read in some of you guys' posts on the ending of BaM. I was not here for the very beginning, I joined in the Summer and don't really have a good understanding of the genesis of this forum. (Hint: an 'inception' thread in the 'Forum Rules and News' section might be a good idea.)

So my thanks go to those who got this thing going in the first place, including PRSh since I'm sure he had to make the final OK for a 'go'.

A special mention goes to Hans - it is clear that he really wants this to be a thriving community. He continues to dream up new reasons for us to engage. I suspect that he would not want to be our 'leader' and I personally am not looking for one. So I will borrow from my martial arts days and think of him as "first among equals."

A special mention to Shawn who helps put a face on the company which is all about PRSh and also not all about PRSh at the same time. He helps us see and value the amazing people who work there.

Thanks too, to the rest of the Forum members. Without interesting people with differing opinions, this place would be a ghost town. Think about this axiom: "If you and I agree 100% on everything, one of us is not necessary."

To my fellow card holders, good work and keep 'em coming.

To Corey, welcome aboard, matey, mind the sharks on your watch and save some grog for me!

(Hint: an 'inception' thread in the 'Forum Rules and News' section might be a good idea.)

Such a thread once existed. It was the 1st thread ever posted on this forum. I can't find it so I'm guessing it was deleted by it's OP. I have to agree that it needed to go away. There is a lot of history with previous "PRS-specific forums" (not just BaM) and, frankly, there's no hope for a thread that even attempts to tell the whole story. Mostly because there are several versions of the truth.

Long story short, I called Paul when BaM died and asked him to open a PRS-specifc, company-sponsored, forum. After working through some concerns, he agreed. Turns out, the company had been considering it for years but didn't want to fragment the BaM community. Every major music manufacturer has it's own forum as part of their social media package. It was high time for PRS to step up and do the same.

A few days after I made that call, Jamie and I were contacted by Shawn. He told us there would be an Official PRS Forum and asked if we were willing to be a part of it. We agreed -- pending some conversations with others in the community. A short time later, the doors opened.

Yes, there is more to this story. Much more. And discussing it will only scrape the scabs off old wounds. So... our inception is simple; BaM died, PRS flipped the switch on a new forum, and we joined.

Where we go from here is our choice.

I love the fact that the 6 of Spades has no previous specific meanings in culture, and I can take it and make it my own rather than follow in someone else's footsteps.

I like my card, and I would like to frame it and hang it on my wall. That said, I'm sort of in the "off the shelf frames are just fine" camp, AKA I'm too cheap to have one made. Maybe.

Does anyone know of any good frames available for the size playing cards we all received?

You can send them to PTC for a V-12 or nitro finish! PTC will also design custom Brazilian Rosewood, Obeche, Maple, Mahogany, Cocobolo or swamp Ash frames and provide matted backdrops with your choice of inlay! My card has a slight chip in it, so I am weighing whether to have it spot repaired, or have the entire card refinished. :)
