So you're saying that ticket volunteers deserve the recognition and you wouldn't have been a volunteer if you didn't get it, but smiley makers should not want recognition because wanting it = not truly caring? That is really really really hypocritical, no? Am I misunderstanding?


I don't think Stah's argument is that the different types of volunteers should be recognized more than they currently are, but rather the term "volunteer" should be expanded to include the other forms of volunteering because the definition of the word "volunteer" perfectly describes what they do for xat.
