annnnnnd this one is just to roll me over into the '500' mark.

what am I now, a 'Leader'?

does this mean I have to act mature? does this mean I have to give better advice? does this mean I have to lose my precious monkey avatar? Laughing out loud

Welcome to leader-ship.

Here's the manual.

Now that you are part of "management", I am affraid there need to be a few changes.

    No more having fun, you here to lead not enjoy.
    The tea breaks end now, must set an example.
    Advice from now on should be more wooly than actually informative. Try saying lots but mean nothing, that way if it goes wrong it's not your fault that they missinterperated what you meant.
    And yes i'm afraid that the monkey needs to be taken out the back and be shot. Sorry, I hate to do it but you know my hands are tied by company policy Wink

Well done!

Congratulations, stick around, I'm sure we'll benefit even more from you and that pug-fugly ape of yours Laughing out loud

You have a responsibility now as a 'Leader' absolutely no more larking about or general frivolity can be allowed and you will watched by the moderator police at all times Smile Cool

first point to be dealt with is that as a 'Leader' you are no longer allowed but ugly and frankly deeply disturbing avatars so that will need to be changed straight away.

(oh well it was worth a try)

Indeed lets hope not, for it's a sad day when someone measures their worth in pure numbers.

The only thing about a large post count is that it would look strange next to a freaky scary monkey based avatar. The two are like chalk and cheese. I could never have them in the same plance. oh no not me.....

'Elder' is the last title to be gained (I think), Guru is bestowed.

'Elder' is gained when reaching 1000 posts.

Hugo.

and yes larmyia temper tantrums are soley reserved for Guru staus as I am often able to demonstrate and are one of the perks Smile

Think you might be wrong there - take a look at Gleddy, Briski & Wolfcry. Wink

yes yes, ok so I was having one of those bleary mornings, one of the other benefits of being guru/moderator is splattering remarks in peoples posts Smile just love the power.

...so then I said, Laughing out loud ...I said, Laughing out loud :lol: ...I said: "why don't you tell that to my mother-in-law!"

...8-[...

:oops: Oh blimey, I've wandered into the wrong topic mid-post again! That's what comes from guruship you see: you get lonely, wooly, absent minded and start talking to yourself.

Do you?

You do indeed - but it's not my fault!

So what brought you over to this topic then?

Well it's most bizarre. I saw this wolf you see, carrying a picture of gleddy in its mouth...

I'm having a screaming temper tantrum now as befits my status how dare people point out minor errors, is there no respect left in the world.

Wolfcry you are a master of the shop of photo's if our friend doesn't tremble with fear I'd be amazed; yet still I am greeted by that disturbing image that makes me plaster post it notes down the side of my screen.

Right that's now two disconcerting avatars, I noticed the blinking eyes the other day and was most perturbed, as I noticed it in the periphery of my vision yet saw nothing when I looked directly, had me thinking I was going mad.

Moderators Note: Will forum members kindly be aware that avatars of a disturbing or downright ugly nature, that may possibly cause upset to members (esp Hugo) should be removed forthwith and replaced by nice happy fluffy images.

I had jut the same experience, the only slight difference is I love that crazey blinky eyes thing for some reason. He looks like he would be a fine upstanding member of any community, blinky eyed or no.
