    I'm wondering about the ranking system. I know about admins, super mentors, and contributers. but are there other ranks in PF? looking back on some old(er) threads, there seems to be more that just those

    In the current form of PF...

    The staff is comprised of "admins, super mentors, & advisors".

    "Contributors" are those wonderful members who donate $$$ to keep PF running.

    The "gurus" are the winners of our annual member voting events.

    Other ranks you may see in the archives have gone extinct (mentors became super mentors, experts became advisors, etc.).

    Gotta love a member like Moonbear who is a guru, contributor, AND an advisor!

    :rofl: It's only been there about 9 months, and you're just noticing? :rofl:

    Next time we do guru awards, I think we need a category for "Least Observant Member." :biggrin:

    :shy: :blushing: :shy: You wanted that payment in small, unmarked bills, right?

    Oh yeah? Well you just don't know how many people hate my guts because of that. Why, the number is almost approaching that of Tom's!

    P.S. Y'know, someone must have laced my gingerale with those silly pills.

    One can find a complete listing of PF's administrators, mentors, advisors, and homework helpers in the Forum Leaders section. (There is a link to this page near the bottom of the main PF index, just above the "What's Going On" section.) The section titled "Science Savvy" lists the forum science advisors.
