    It is all about "titles" and outward appearances.

    Regular pioneers are so hot right now.

    I would guess that their only contribution is whatever magazine's they place and the money they donated for them, plus whatever contributions to the world wide work they collected. Not that that could be very much , but since they don't cost the org anything, any amount is a plus for them.

    I think they will bring in a new type of pioneer. Your'll have the RP 70 hours, AuxP 50 hours & then the something like MiniP 30 hours. & every-one will say "oh how loving of the brothers to think of those who have always wanted to pioneer but couldn't quite manage the 50". The Borg will come out looking like gods. It will only be those that question it that will see it any different.

    As for donations, most RP are in debt for 1000's. Stay out of debt, but pioneer. contradiction or what.

    Regular pioneers are free labor powerhouse with zero responsibilities for the Organization. What's not to like?

    No value at all, unless you are an elder willing to move from time to time.

    When I was a pioneer it was 1000 hours per year or 90 hours per month. If you didn't manage 90 hours you had to write an excuse on the back of the pink slip.

    It occurred to me that it was a con. If I stopped pioneering and reported 20 hours a month as a publisher I would be an outstanding example. If I report 85 as a pioneer I get grief.

    We stopped pioneering.

    Regular Pioneers are the real suckers, Pledging to do 100, 90 what is it now hours, a goal that forces you to go out, ?? at least we "special" pioneers got paid 30 cents an hour. wow!!
