Congratulations DaleSpam, and thanks HallsofIvy.

With that there will be a little moderator shuffle with Micromass finding a home in the Mathematics forums.
Is the mentor distribution visible somewhere?

Note that Mentors can moderate every forum - so while we do specialize, in obvious cases (like spam or insults) it is on a "first to spot, first to ban" basis.

Perhaps Emeritus Mentor would be a more appropriate term?
They are Retired Staff.
Oh, what a boring, inadequate term that is, totally failing to recognize their contributions. It sounds like an old bull has been put out to pasture.

It should be "Mentor Emeritus".

I like the idea.

FYI
In the United States, the word is used either as a postpositional adjective (e.g., "professor emeritus"), or as a prepositional adjective (e.g., "emeritus professor"). There is a third usage, although not employed as often, in which the word follows a full title (e.g., professor of medicine, emeritus.)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emeritus

Then there's this.
