PF staff changes

  1. Sep 19, 2013 #1
    We're sad to see SammyS, Fredrik and Micromass leave the Mentor group. All are facing very busy real lives. We are hoping it's temporary so they can hop back in and put back on the Mentor pants! Thanks to them for their incredible effort!

    We're proud to announce two members have stepped up to the plate and we've hit a home run. Office_Shredder will be joining the staff as a Mathematics Mentor and gneill as a Homework Help Mentor. Both are long time members who have shown time and again their good character and excellent quality. Welcome!!

    Sad to see SammyS leaving, he had been a great Homework Helper to me, I hope he returns soon. Thank you SammyS for the time you spent helping out the students. :)

    Congratulations to the new mentors. :smile:

    Sorry to see micro leave, he was a sweet, caring, helpful math genius.

    Fredrik, I hope you will return when things are less hectic for you, getting to know you in the mentors forum was fun.

    Sammy, I never saw you in the mentor's forum, so I never got to know you, but I hear you are very helpful in homework and hope you will continue.

    Now I can start hazing the new mentors. :tongue2:

    And in accord with my ruling, micromass may not leave the forum.

    It's sad to see such a great group of mentors all leave at the same time

    Indeed. The best always leave while the others... remain. Sad. Hope they come back.

    Thank you. Do you want to be banned in one step, or with a several separate infractions?

    . . . wow. I really though Micromass was female. I'm not trying to insult here. I just seem to recall micro implying that in a thread or two. You sure right?

    I can confirm that micromass was and is male.

    Alright. Thanks. Guess he's gonna' be insulted now. Really didn't mean offense. I was almost sure of it. Guess my brilliant sense of observation can fail sometimes.

    Go ahead, someone say something insulting to me. That will make it even then. Don't want him to hate me.

    jackmell smells. Of mackerel.

    Is that insulting enough?

    I was expecting to be completely ignored which is itself insulting so either way I get pie. But thanks for being considerate Arildno.

    But may I mention a short, but well-written, anecdote I have of micromass? There was a thread in GD about a topic more suited to the beyond forum that the OP was clearly not qualified to talk about. Several challenged him but micromass gave a short highly mathematical-sounding reply that could have made sense if you were in the know. I asked micromass, "you're joking right?" to which he replied and I quote, "not really, no". The others then took the thread more seriously. However, look at what he said, "not really, no" could mean no, not really which could mean "not joking, no" which means no, not joking which means joking. To this day I believe micromass was joking although my wonderful sense of observation has failed me in the past.

    I remember that too, although I don't know which thread.


    I didn't think he was joking. I think he just reads/knows more than the rest of us...

    Earlier his profile stated something about micromass being 16 which was a running joke on the chat.
