Let me just preface this by saying I have nothing against the ambassadors, in fact I really like the person who put her hands up to be ambassador for our local area, as well as other members who are ambassadors for a range of topics, but I can't help but wonder if there would be a better way of selecting ambassadors.
They kind of reflect on Bubhub itself, and a newbie to the forums might not know how the ambassadors have been chosen, and assume they're an 'expert'. I'd hate for someone to be given incorrect advice which they took as expert and for something bad to happen to them or their child.
I understand that the ambassador concept is fairly new, I just wonder whether it has been thought out properly. I just don't think that self nomination is a good enough reason to be considered an ambassador.I realise it would be time consuming, but I wonder if perhaps a nomination/ voting system could be used, so that if someone wants to nominate themselves, it must then be 'seconded' or 'sponsored' by another member.
