[Administrator] [Forum Moderator] [Member] [Plusnet Staff] [Bright Spark] [Usergroup Member] [Legend] [Gradwell Staff]
Some are obvious , some guessable -
but:
I assume [Bright sparks] are those that have answered a lot of posts
[Legend] long term members

Re: user titles ?

That, if I may say so is a very good question.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

1. A bit more than that; you have to contribute (by helping others technically) be nominated and accept (unless the rules have changed recently).
2. Search for the earlier thread, I think there is (or was) only 1 "Legend"!
3. Don't Gradwell provide the VOIP platform?

Yep Strat's link pretty much explains it Smiley
Gradwell is PlusNet's phone service provider I think, so you'll see the occasional post from them in the phone forums.

Re: user titles ?

the known Legend has been popping up recently and there is said to be another one who doesnt have it in his title
some of the bright sparks are a bit dubious,  they are supposed to be initially on a probationary period during which they can be removed

Re: user titles ?

There are two Legends.
Would you like to try and find them, or should I spoil your fun and tell you who they are?

Re: user titles ?

John Essex is not a fraud by any means - he moderated the original PN portal forums for a considerable amount of time before stepping down in the community forums to allow someone new to join us.
The other "legend" is Billbo, who was a long time Metronet forum moderator and subsequent community moderator. We as a team felt it fitting that as he was time served, he was given the legend status as well.

LOL @ Strat
Sorry Peter, I didn't get it right did I?  Sad
Ah well.. I guess you could call Peter Vaughan a legend in his own right. I've never seen anyone with a post count so high before!!  Cheesy
