There is a new, member award.......

 

"Mentor Appreciation"        helping hands.png

 

This award is intended to give appreciation to those who have been a Mentor to other members, helping with questions and getting started, or any other reason you feel it is deserved. The most appropriate use IMO, would be to have the site members say who they would want this given to and briefly why.

 

I, or any other Mod, Site Admin, would then give the award on your behalf.

 

Please put your suggestions/ requests here in this thread, or PM a request to any Moderator and we will give the award to the deserving member.

 

There are a lot of good people here who have Mentored over the years, its a good part of what makes this site what it is today. We can all say thank you, going all the way back to our Founder, Hippie3 himself.....................

 

Nobody is excluded from this.

 

Skye

In my humble opinion, Sir, you should be at the top of that list Skywatcher. I nominate yourself as one of the top Mentors on this site. I would also have to add in TV Casualty, Alderlogs. Riseabovethethought, Heirloomspores, Neptunechild, and I could think of ten others by this evening and I will give it some thought. :)

I would like to nominate MLBjammer.

I can think of no one who is more helpful, or patient with new members.

He always has helpful, constructive advice, and gives encouragement. He is a great teacher to those of us that want to learn.

I feel he is the epitome of a mentor.

Alder I think he meant that you  or anyone can nominate any one
for  mentror appreciantion "  for the help they give to any one.

I agree that Alder should be awarded. ^^^^

Alder you give only the best advise, you have helped many in many different ways
you are a respected member.

I received this award an don't feel worthy.

This is exactly what it means. Everyone can say thank you to anyone who you feel has helped or mentored you.

You are worthy Heirloom!     :thumbs_up:  

 

I will start giving the awards as requested in all the posts above. Thank you to all who have made suggestions. I agree and second these.

 

I cannot give the award to myself Coop.

You do deserve one, Skye :)

I know its not really a mission here, more of a sideline or distraction really, but I would like to nominate, Pharmer, for all of the wonderful knowledge he has given me on photography.

EDIT: DAM AUTO CORRECT!!!

I would personally like to nominate Zen, who works tirelessly to keep the servers running, the software up to date, and has been a mentor to many on the topic of sacraments here. I would also second all the nominations to Skye, MLBJammer, Alder, Heirloom, gosh... I could go on for awhile!!!!

You are all keeping me busy............. :biggrin:

 

We have so many people here who go the extra mile to help and teach, as we come in the door and long afterward.  I am happy to see this recognised and appreciated. Thanks to Sedaeng for suggesting this award.

What he said.

 

So, we must run down and tackle Skye and pin the thing on his chest?   Well, if that's the way it's gotta be...

 

Dog-pile on Skye!

I thought if I made a bad enough pun that I might get disqualified.    Looks like y'all got me.    Thanks friends.

We'll do what we have to do I guess....

It would be easier to assimilate, Skye.

Don't make Alder, make me, sit on you until you comply. I'm kind of a large fellow, and you may never be able to walk again :)

Maybe its more of how the awards system works, in that its not possible to award yourself?  Someone else with 'awards' accessibility would have to offer [mentor] up to Skye, I would think.

That's what I figured, in all honesty :)

I was just taking the opportunity to stir up the pot some.

I cant help myself, its just my way.

(Love you brother, Skye! Just teasing, my friend.)

Sorry Coop, Alder, SteampunkScientist, and Juthro, you will need to ask a different mod. I can't award myself, even if it is requested by you all.

OK< I am asking all mods, any mods, to PLEASE present this award to Skywatcher for all the awesome advice and help he has tirelessly given on this site. Rarely do I ever go to answer a post and not find Skywatcher's name already there and giving stellar and well thought out advice and sharing freely of his immense knowledge base. Mods, (Anyone who can present) I hereby officially nominate...again... Skywatcher for his outstanding service to the community. I know you can make this happen and I don't think the populace will settle for anything less! :) Thank you for your help whoever does his for him! :)
