Care to elaborate further? How do you need people to support you in this? Be specific. How will you be able to get them to give discounts? I assume they've gotten back to you, what have they said? How do you plan on "gaining relevance"?
I'm with BurtonAvenger. As of right now you (like me) are just some random dude, who happens to be trying to use the forum to get a discount on a board.
