I'm pleased to announce that our very first Senior Member is ....
MickeM

MickeM's helpful attitude and great knowledge of Amps and effects, and more importantly the way he is always happy to advise other members earned him this deep GMC honour!

Henceforth, MickeM will bear the Costume Name "Born of NWOBHM" - I'll let him explain that!

Congratulations MickeM!
Others will follow ...


i think he deserved it ... he really helped me pick out pedals and amps

So question about this. Is there only going to be a selected few, and thats it. Or is it like an honor that everybody can get eventually?

Edit: And also, is there going to be a new one selected everyday, whenever it is nesscary, or is just going to be once a week?

There isn't a limit - anyone that qualifies can be a Senior member. Its based on merit not any kind of notion of how many there should be.

Exact timing and descicions are up to Kris - but I will say, that we won't make one a day just because. If there is noone to promote, we won't do it!

Congratulations MickeM - I think you have done an awesome job here at the forum! Not only have you contributed with lots of knowledge, but you have also contributed with mature arguments the few times there has been an conflict/argument!

A badge for senior members is on it's way!

Thanks alot for your presence MickeM! biggrin.gif

Well at least realising that one isn't mature is proof of maturity! biggrin.gif wink.gif

I don't know if it qualifes for a badge though...

Seriously, I must say that if you help people with the things you know - while learning yourself, so that your knowledge range keeps growing - you will be able to qualify too in the future smile.gif

Congrats to MikeM and for it was well deserved . biggrin.gif
I wish you the best of luck in your playing and I hope more from you is yet to come!


On another note.


These are I think some suggestions for Senior Members.

I think any Gmc Instructor by Default should be a senior member. That in itself reflects all the qualitys shown in the first post.

Tank should easily be another senior member. Hes been here since the start of Gmc and he helped the site thrive into what it is today. ( Member # 5 ! ) And I believe even the " Theory god Andrew " learned quite alot from him at one point.



Thats just what I think ! cool.gif



Great Idea !- John
