    As far as I am aware, a mentor is a government post, controlling one province of the land, of PF whilst an advisorship is a knighthood, giving no special powers but as an honorary postion.

    That's almost poetic, FZ

    Advisors are also around so that if anything happens to one of the mentors (extended vacation, resignation, forum reorginizations, etc.), we have someone who is up to date on recent issues ready to take over.

    That was beautiful, FZ+.
    Any attempts to explain further would pale in comparison.

    It is a dictatorship.

    Re: gov. type

    A mix of autocracy, oligarchy and possibly monarchy.

    In that case, I think if I had a government position, I could be mentor of a new jokes forum, and be of great service to the PF Emperor.

    Oh, come on Master Greg, you know I'd be good at it.

    P.S. Remember to check out the General discussion thread, "Just a Buncha Physics Jokes."
    It looks like you'll need a whole new forum to contain all the new jokes that are coming in every day. Not to mention someone to Mentor that forum too.
