    You become one by sticking around, making lots of good posts, and demonstrating that you're an asset to the forum. Then, when we find that we need to augment the staff, we nominate new mentors from our membership. If they accept, they're mentors.

    We range in age from the early twenties to (I believe) the seventies. We live on a few continents. Some of us are professional educators, some of us are hobbyists, and some of us are indeed graduate students. :smile:

    so its more a trial-and-error thing until you find smart people that know what theyre talking about.

    The fact is that I bribed chroot for giving me that award. Although he don't want to say it to you, just now he is at one beach of the Bahamas, drinking an exotic liquor, and picking up with some hottie girls. And all that by means of my money. :rofl:

    The problem was you gave Chroot false dollars. And now you are known at PF as a gangster. It is impossible to swindle to Chroot. He knows how to deal.

    I was not referring to that. It was only a joke. I don't think Marlon was responsible of that. And I think Marlon deserved that award anyway more than other who in fact have been awarded with that award.
