    Don't I help enough :( ?

    It seems that I toil away in the Homework help section, at least half my post count is from there, yet I can never seem to attain a Homework Helper Medal!! Can anyone give me some tips about how to more effectively help in the help section? Because I see people with 300 posts with a helper medal, they are obviously doing something Im not!

    Help me help them!

    Hang on Gib Z, someone more familiar with your posting history should chime in soon.

    Hi Gib, although I don't spend much time in the Calc forums from what I've seen your post are generally of a very high quality and you have been making a significant contribution. However, that said I may not be seeing the whole picture; either way I don't think this is best discussed in the open forum, I would recommend that you PM either Integral, Hurkyl or HallsofIvy and take it up privately. In the meantime, I'll mention this in the HH forum and see what the consensus is.

    Also, we are a little behind in reviewing the helper nominations. Please be patient.

    We do have a number of members that are really deserving of medals that haven't received them yet. Hopefully, this will be rectified soon.

    It never hurts to ask, we've been surprised more than once that a member we thought had received a ribbon, in fact did not.

    Also, if someone with ribbons notices another deserving member, please bring it to our attention.

    Stumbling on to this, I'm a bit puzzled, because in the first post by Gib Z, the medal of homework helper is there. Has he been given it since he posted it?

    Also, I had been a bit curious as to how different people get the various recognitions.

    GibZ was awarded the Homework Helper medal after the thread was started. Normally people are nominated for recognitions by Mentors and other homework helpers and science advisors when they have been recognised as providing quality posts in a particular area.

    Quantity is also a significant factor.
