Featured Thank You PF Mentors!

  1. Dec 13, 2018 #1
    PF owes much of it's success because of our tireless volunteer Mentor crew. In 2018 they dealt with well over 3000 reports! Some take 5 minutes and some take days to handle. But community policing is just one of dozens of hats they wear. I am always proud to learn about a Mentor taking extra patient time to explain a science concept, forum issue or question in private that literally takes days. These situations are not rare and they take incredible energy. We have a special crew and are so lucky!

    The Mentor crew has been exceptionally amazing in 2018 when in March I landed a new job that has taken a lot of time away from PF. The Mentors have taken even more responsibility for the well being of the community and we are all in their debt.

    Please help me by posting a message of thanks for their relentless efforts!

    This year I also want to recognize our Mentors from the past. PF is absolutely an evolution. Every year PF builds upon itself and gets better. We've had a lot of incredibly influential Mentors from the past who played a big part in molding PF to what it is today even if some aren't a frequent member anymore. None-the-less they should be remembered and supremely thanked!

    Tom was one of the mentors who helped move PF out of the dark ages! A huge contributor to writing our early quality guidelines!

    Thanks to Berkeman who shows interest in my post regarding a magnetic field coming out from a charged disk.

    I'm the dimmest Mentor bulb here, but it's truly special and a pleasure to be part of this group. Honestly, the very high level of technical expertise in the upper levels of science and math in the Mentor and SA groups combined with our sincere desire to help folks learn is amazing. The PF rocks at all levels. :smile:

    This is the first and many times the only place I come to to find out the latest news in Physics and have done for many years. Brilliant job by the Mentors and SAs. Thank you and Happy Holidays and a Prosperous New Year!

    Thanks to all the PF mentors especially for making me think a lot before asking questions, and how simple questions may lead to huge problems.This really helped me out in real life!

    You're much too modest with your thousands of lumens guiding us engineers over the years. Thanks for being here @berkeman.

    Thanks to all the mentors and especially our leader @Greg Bernhardt.
