    You may have noticed for some time that certain members have a "T" after their username. You may have also noticed that some more members have recently acquired that same "T" following their name.

    The "T" is for Trustee, another division of forum leadership. We've been working on getting this rolled out for sometime, but various problems have slowed things down.

    Organizationally, a trustee will be between the Members and the Moderators and the Trustee's focus will be more on the day-to-day activities in a specific part of the forum. Each Trustee has been given a subforum or group of sub-forums to oversee, organize, edit, and to help members as needed.

    Forum discipline will still be the pervue of the moderators.

    Previously assigned Trustees are:

    Mussolini - Gaming
    Erich - Air Wars in the various theaters (Europe, Med and Pacific)
    DGMitchell - Books and Publication
    Stefan - Reenacting, and areas to be added later.

    Three new Rogues have been appointed to oversee certain areas. Please join me in thanking them for taking on the assignments and we look forward to their contributions.

    Andypants - Militaria
    MikeBatzel - Pacific
    Syscom3 - Pacific

    These guys are our guinea pigs, as we have never promoted three members at the same time, plus we don't have all their duties ironed out yet.

    In the coming months and weeks, we will be approaching more members to fill more Trustee slots, with a goal of having at least one trustee assigned to most of the larger forums.

    Our goal is to make this forum the most respected and most well known general WWII discussion forum on the net. This is another step in that direction.

    Slipdigit is the father of these new steps and Otto the "Grossfatter". The new trustees will be welcome members. It is a way to reward some of you for your faithfulness, knowledge and skills. Also seeing the "dark" side of the moon will make you see our work from a different angle and help to understand each other better. Communication is a key to success, so we hope that this way to open our doors will be benefitial for all of us.

    Congratulations guys! The forum will only get better as a result of this action, no doubt about it. I couldn't think of better and more deserving Rogues for the job. Good luck in your new assignments. Y'all are going to need it.

    Do they get to wear armbands now?

    I was thinking something like corporal stripes, or something like a great big "T" like the US Army's old "OOD" armbands (officer of the day). Maybe glow in the dark or something neat like that.

    It's sort of shaped like a "T", and it glows in the dark too.

    Yeah well, his "T" still has that new car smell. Let's encourage him to succeed instead or provide him with opportunities to fail.
