    I've just noticed that some people who are mentors, are not assigned to moderate a particular forum, I was just wandering what the reason is for this, what their roles and responsibilities are for example?

    None of our mentors are actually restricted to acting in one specific forum. All are able to do whatever is needed in any forum. The "floating mods" pretty much do the same thing the assigned mods do.

    I've also noticed that these 'floaters' :wink: do not appear on the forum 'staff' page, is there any particular reason for this?

    I dare one of you mentors to append "purple monkey dishwasher" to this post.

    purple monkey dishwasher :biggrin: (Though, you already have it written above, how do you know it's me writing it?) :devil:

    Better to sneak up on people when they aren't looking. :biggrin:

    It's just a quirk of the software I think that only those assigned to forums show up in that list. Unless Greg's just trying to give me a hint of some sort. :uhh:

    Tsk tsk tsk! Moonbear failed the most important rule of PF Mentoring: Never ever edit someone's post with "purple monkey dishwasher".

    Well, now we know why Greg won't acknowledge me on the mentor list. :rofl: That's what they get for never giving me an instruction manual. :rolleyes:

    Darn, I knew I should have waited for the double dog dare. :grumpy:
