New medals

    I saw a couple of guys wearing new medals. I'm quite sure that they didn't have them a few days back, but I'm not absolutely sure. I feel dicey about saying congrats to them. One of them was wearing a HH tag, but there's nothing in the HH forum. Is there a page where new recognitions are announced?

    p.s. Are we ever getting some new smileys?

    I can't remember seeing anyone that i didn't already know had a medal. If they were new Greg would almost have certainly announced it in the HH forum. If you search the nominations thread for their name you might turn up an earlier post where it was announced.

    You're right Kurdt. I must have been mistaken.

    Congrats to our new SAs! I think we need to restart our tradition of recognizing new medalists.

    Hear, hear.

    But shouldn't everyone come to know of it first, not just the mentors?

    This time it was a little unusual, since Greg is still on the road. I don't even know if the new SA's are aware they are SA's. They are relatively quiet.

    Anyway, all the decisions and postings would be made in the inner circle for SA's, and others wouldn't even know about it, right?

    Thats true. If there were to be anything like MoonB suggested then Greg (or whoever is in charge) would have to post the announcements in this forum.

    What did MoonB suggest? (And who else do you mean by whoever?)

    Moonbear suggested congratulating new medalists in post 10 of this thread. Since Astronuc mentioned that Greg was on the road I was just referring to whoever had the authority to make such changes just in case it wasn't Greg that did it but I'm not entirely sure really.

    People will know when they see the member has a medal, but an announcement here would be nice. As Astronuc mentioned, Greg has been on vacation, he did take the time to give the two medals though.
