Say, how does one get to be a Guru anyway? Is there a test or something? Iwas just wondering about the different classifications of our members. Member,active member, veryactive etc. This really is a great group of people who contribute and run this site. So thanks to all. And as far as I can tell those who put themselves out there as Gurus really are worthy of the title. I've learned quite a bit in my short timehere. Just wondering who pins the monicker on the person?

....the moderator , or the board "host" /forums/images/emoticons/cool.gifis the Guru Maker...it is based on nominations from the rest of the board .. as to  their helpfulness... so .. in a sense.. we are ALL "Guru" makers... the members activity (number of posts ) automatically decides on the "active Member" status.../forums/images/emoticons/emoticonsxtra/cooldj.gif

It's mostly just in fun. In my case it required a manila envelope, addressed to a secret address in Ireland. Sucking up, begging, boasting and in my case BSing have been usedwith various effect. There are some who've done it with knowledge, but that may be cheating.

gekiesel, I'm glad you didn't ask about the Active Members, especially those with Very Active Members. It's just too embarrassing. Some of these guys just have no shame!

Hey gkiesel :waving:To answer your question as briefly as i can, :stumped:here goes. :leprechaun:

I have been a member of this forum since day one, :clapper:I have helped members to find their way around this place, :walker:I have welcomed members from far away places, :hallo:I have advised members to fit the correct tyres (BRIDGESTONES) on their wings, :jumper:I have explained the workings of The Kill Switch :behead: to the members, :dance:I cant remember half the information that i have parted to the members. :doh: After all that work i attended three interviews in Dublin to try and get promoted to "Guru" :banana:but no such luck.

Here i am after completing a full year helping the members on this forum as the official "Forum Welcomer" :clapper: Now if you can make any sense out of this.

:leprechaun: :18red: :leprechaun:

You don't deserve the great honor for two reasons:

1. Your check bounced.

2. You are holding out on the location of the Isle of Woman from your brothers onthis, the Greatest Goldwing Site on the Internet.

Not a wonder REDWING passed the bulls**t section with "flying colours", he did that, stating that red is the fastest colour!!:goofygrin:

Manxblackcat, aren't you always gonna be a bit short on bulls**t on that Island of yours? I don't recal it being exactly famous for it's beef export!!:goofygrin:

Redwing deserves the honour of senior welcomer, he is always on the "cutting edge":goofygrin:
