    I've heard both terms used to describe the forum moderators. Is there a difference between one or the other, or is super mentor a term from the bygone days of PF before my time?

    Astronuc: Physicist, Scientist, mentor. Searching for a way to tap into the hidden strengths that all humans have. Then an accidental overdose of Gamma radiation alters his body chemistry."

    Announcer: "And now when Astronuc grows angry or outraged, a startling metamorphosis occurs."

    ... super mentor........

    In the beginning...a mentor could only moderate posts in their own forum. A super mentor kind of floated between forums.

    Then we all became super mentors and we all could moderate in any forum.

    Then the name became meaningless and we are all now OMNIPOTENT MENTORS!!!

    Actually, I'm a mild-mannered, nuts-and-bolts nuclear engineer with an interesting background. And I've only been a mentor for 5 weeks now.

    That's what the Overlords were called for a while until they took over the earth. (But for good reasons, I hasten to add!)

    Cool, this makes sense. But, Evo, do I sense a little power madness?!:eek:

    It's all about the tights and cape. Of course, some of us look better in that than others. :wink:

    Naw, Evo doesn't care about power; it's just regular every-day madness.

    As for Astro, just take his member photo, paint it green, draw in some heavy eyebrows... :uhh:
