Thank you, yes, we are brilliant.


But we would be nothing without the graciousness of the members of PF. Pats on the back all around!

Andy, if you really want to become a mentor, then all you have to meet the following basic requirements.

1. Have deep knowledge in a specific topic on physicsforums

2. Must be dedicated to helping those less knowledgable then you.

3. Willling and able to watch and protect all that is good and scared in this forum of intellect.

4. Must not look like a chimpanzee

5. Must not have a name that begins with an 'A' and ends with a 'Y'

6. Can't be born on August 20, 1985

7. Can't have a member number of 29

If you meet all these requirements, then all you have to do is wait for Greg to send you the standard mentor employment papers in the mail

dduardo...

mentors don't necessarily have to have a lot of knowledge in their forum the monitor...but i do believe the mentors must display compassion, patience for everyone to the best of their ability, and a positive attitude that encourages our members to contribute also that same positive attitude...

trivia question...which mentor has been on the board the longest, and how long have they been a mentor?

Is it Tom, and since the birth of Physicsforums.

Justa random guess there.

lol...i was gonna say greg was the first but seeing as i have only just managed to fix the internet (yes i myself sorted out every problem on the web....i wish *geek sound*) on my computer

I'll say it now... GREG was the first member as he was the founding father of PF.

And yes, mentors are great. Without them...uh, there would be nobody to put in the mentors section of the pages....GOOD JOB!!!

But that doesnt answer the question of how long. And jimmy p the question was who was the first mentor, i beleive greg has only ever been the adminastrator.

Monique was brought onboard within the first month, phobos wasn't too much further off.

well greg seemed to agree that he was a mentor, and he has always been there...before PF there was Greg, he has always been there and always will...how philosophical

Thats just a theoretical place dammit, i could easily have been #29 or what i would like to have been..#6, so i could go through that whole 'The Prisoner' routine

'You are number 6'
'I am not a number, I'm a free man!!!'


"You are number 628" doesnt have the same ring to it? hey greg ol'buddy ol' pal, can i be #6 please

Just to note, the post count you see is not starting from that time it gets reset with new versions of PF :wink:
