Changes to Ranks

Post by John » Sun Nov 03, 2013 8:33 pm

Dear Forum Members,

You may have noticed that the ranks (title below username) have recently changed. In order to show some additional appreciation to certain members, we have introduced a special rank – ‘Respected Guru’. We have also replaced existing ranks in order to better portray the special rank that has been introduced (namely the removal of the rank ‘Guru’ and replacing it with Diamond Member).

The new special rank ‘Respected Guru’ has been awarded to those members who the moderating team believe have displayed a continuous and substantial commitment to the forum. Their posts have been both knowledgeable and helpful whilst also adhering to the forum rules.

This does not mean that other members are not appreciated. Furthermore, the special rank may be allocated to other members that also show an exceptional commitment to the forum, in due course.

We wish to express our deepest gratitude to all the members who continue to make this forum a productive and helpful environment for others, in the often complex and emotional world of immigration.

Note: The responses on the forum are not intended to be viewed as legal advice. Although we try to ensure that responses are as accurate as possible this cannot be guaranteed, especially in light of continual change in the rules. If you wish to ensure that the information is correct please seek advice from an OISC regulated adviser or Solicitor who specialises in immigration law.

Kind regards

The Moderating Team
John

It was clearly not very well thought after.

No one has been demoted. We appreciate all those who help others, the ranking system, for the majority is still as it was, based purely on the number of post(s) a member has made. The additional ranking is to just highlight those members who have made an exceptional contribution. If you believe that someone else is deserving of this rank then by all means nominate them (send me a private message), there is nothing to stop others from attaining the rank.

I am pleased to announce that the following members have been awarded the special rank of Respected Guru:

Damanisshallo
Directive/2004/38/EC
Greenie
Jambo
linkers
Lucapooka
manci
PaperPusher
sheraz7

If you would like to be considered for the special rank, or you would like to nominate someone else, then please send me a private message for consideration by the Moderating Team. Consideration for the rank will likely be given (but not exclusively) to someone who has already attained the status of Diamond Member (by making 1000 or more useful posts).

**Please do not abuse the board by posting unnecessarily just to increase your rank -- you will probably find the moderator or administrator will simply lower your post count.**
