    Actually Mark, maybe there is something more involved here.

    You know that old expression "Many a true word said in jest"?

    I think that applies......

    What's a Tobi ? - a young fry who's growth accelerates away from its peers.

    Well, didn't we all start on this new forum as fry? and who is leading the way post wise?

    God I'm perceptive, and I don't even realise it half the time.

    It seems to me that posters such as JR and others stand on their own merit. It is obvious to any (even rank beginners) that some of these posts are very thoughtful and based on much experience. That said, to ask for a special recognition by whatever means is fraught with problems. The usual understanding is that these boards are public domain and Brian would take no liability for any views or procedures suggested. By endorsing an individual, does that "pierce the corporate veil" so to speak? Additionally, would Brian be bound to include the many others that we all know have a direct and positive influence on the hobby? Just as the "cheese stands alone", IMHO I think each post should stand alone.
    Thoughts from a Newbie,

    Hi Folks,

    Sorry about not getting around to this post, but I wanted to think about it long and hard before I gave any answers. I enjoy and appreciate JR's posts as much as anyone else on this board, but after a long deliberation find it kind of unfair to everyone else to assign anyone a special or honorary ranking.

    I'm sure a lot of people will understand that things like this can get complicated, and that once you agree to give someone special treatment or acknowledgement, that it can cause hard feelings for others when they don't receive this same sort of acknowledgment as well.

    A very well intended thought for someone that makes very thoughtful and interesting posts here that are very much appreciated, but I think that I'm going to have to share the same view as Bern on this one "Who's qualified to judge who's who?". :wink:
