SPOTLIGHT SERIES - feelingtruth
This is the Twenty Eighth in an ongoing series of spotlight debates. The purpose of the debate is to "roast" the user (and when I say "roast", I mean in a nice way). Please share all the good, humorous, and otherwise positive aspects about this important user of our community. Don't worry, I will be creating one of these every few days so your name may show up next!

I'm somewhat curious as to why he has a spotlight before a great majority of us that have been on this site for a substantial amount of time prior to him making an account.
And you can't really argue that it's because people like me aren't as active as they use to be considering I see users that have been inactive for over a year get the spotlight.
I'm not jealous by any means believe me, I'm just curious as to how this system works and if half the users that have gotten spotlights really deserve it.
I'm a bit drunk so that's probably the only reason I'm posting this, but that's just my 2 cents ;)
Chuck is right, the spotlight system isn't based on how long you've been on the site, it based on how many points you have. You could make a new account today and if you managed to accumulate some 1800 points in a couple days that new account would be the next one featured in the spotlight series.
This system mean we end up focusing the spotlight on members who have been inactive for months or years, but the same problem would occur (perhaps even in greater abundance) if we were basing it off who had been here longer. Then we might end up with a spotlight debate for some member who joined several years ago, has been inactive for some years since that, has no points, and thus nobody here knows about them. Old accounts with a lot of points, even if they are currently inactive, are likely to be remembered by old members who have been here a while. Nobody would remember those people who have had accounts forever but rarely post anything.
Ostensibly, it appears that feelingtruth has self esteem issues with the event of creating a debate asking why is nobody roasting him.
Before that, I thought he was a well rounded individual and reasonable debater.
Someone has to give it time, everything doesn't happen at demand.
