I'd second Breaking's promotion, and suggest Platypus be promoted to the Community Advisor club for general helpfulness and unrivalled notewatching efficiency. I mean that Nana Mouskouri thread alone is basically worth a promotion in my book.
crepeaccrual and gregsynthbootlegs seem like they'd be at home in the community advisor role to me, as their opinions are held in high regard and are good contributors for lists and other discussions. Although that 'Legends' rank has been mentioned in the past, and with your long-standing association with the forum that could be a good title if CAs are getting crowded.
cryszofthescots With absolutely no disrespect meant, in my own opinion I don't think you've been active enough on the forum for some months now to keep the range advisor role.
Right-o, so after some discussion amongst mods and the like, we're going to make a swap that we feel is going to best fit the needs of the community going forward. IhateMana has been promoted to Community Advisor and Shaman will return to the Range Advisor position. We feel that both these users are better suited in their current roles than in their previous ones, and we anticipate this will be the best move for the sake of the forum.
Call me trigger happy with promotions (you'll be correct), but with the one year anniversary of 3.0 coming up, I can think of no better way to mark it than by promoting Alex61 to admin. Alex, you've integrated perfectly into the forum and helped improve it every step of the way. Thorough in thread checking, helping re-start and combine informational threads behind the scenes that will help us present our findings, ran the clip-off to a great standard which we all thoroughly enjoyed, and completed great and extensive threads for a number of ultra A-Listers like Kate Bush, Nina Simone and most recently, Dolly Parton. I know it's a position that's already well-staffed, but I think it's worth a vote from me for the level of work you've put in across all the different aspects of TRP.
So if you haven't noticed, we have a few new promotions to acknowledge. First off, I have to congratulate Wizard Imp on his Community Advisor promotion and Clem on his Moderator promotion! Both of these two deserve these wholeheartedly and I'm sure you will excel in those new roles.
Of course, the major hullabaloo will no doubt have to do with the fact that there's a new administrator, by name of Alex61! As my role on the site will decrease over time, I figured it would only make sense that we get a new guy into the admin ranks, and there's no doubt that Alex warrants the promotion as much as anyone ever has. Whether it be behind-the-scenes or in plain sight, he has done more for this forum and the website in general over the past 6-7 months or so than anyone else, period. If we want this place to continue growing as it has, people like him need to be the ones in charge, so this was an incredibly easy decision to make. Best of luck to you, and as you have always done since starting on here a little over a year ago, I am sure you will kick ass with those powers that come with the dark blue name!
