    Agree also about the selection process. Hands-up, we got that wrong.

    I still think that it needs to be on a volunteer basis. But once someone has volunteered, there needs to be a much stricter process of accepting and appointing that person to the role.

    What about 'Guru'?

    I guess it's a lighthearted way of saying someone is the go-to person ... ??







    Plus, if you say it enough times, it sounds hilarious!

    I think it's still too formal and 'official'. Prefer 'guru' or something that we just make up (that way new hubbers won't work out what it means til they've been around for a little while and won't expect instant answers from those people!)

    Maybe 'Affectionado/a'. It implies that someone is passionate and affectionate about a particular topic. Not only current ambassadors are, of course, but it's the only title I can think of! It sounds a little exotic and we might get a wave of Spaniards and latin-Americans in (who find us thanks to google)

    Ooooh, I like Guru. But I'm afraid it will inflate my already massive sense of self-importance.

    In fact for areas/locations I like Ambassador (Eastern Suburbs Ambassador)


    For things like parenting styles I like Advocate (Attachement Parenting Advocate)

    I also think there needs to be a private nomination to be seconded by a mod or two BHer's with more than 1000 posts and/or a general consensus area vote

    I also think that anyone who is nominated and accepts, then they also need to be closely vetted and to be someone of reasonably good internet character with a history of posting or supporting the area they will be an advocate of.

    For example NoWhere would be a brilliant advocate of Special Needs and I'd be useless.

    I like ambassador for regions and advocate for special interest.

    I also think the selection should be similar to that of a mod - regular poster who is decent to others. You can be passionate and still polite.

    Just wanted to point out that not ALL ambassadors request to become one... I know of one who was approached about it (and obviously agreed!)

    I just want to go on the record and say that there are a few of us who bust our collective butts to take care of the responsibilities given to us. MuminMind goes way above and beyond the call of duty and there are others.

    For myself, I didn't volunteer to be an ambassador but was invited to do so based on my posts and activity on the forum. I'd like to see those selected for "specialty" fields done the same way.

    But the "over 1000 post" thing really annoys me. I have only 700 or so posts. But I've been thanked nearly 900 times. I just don't come on here to post "fluff" - or not very often. Most of the time, my posts are for a specific purpose and that "post vs thanks" ratio reflects that. If you start taking high post count into things then you really potentially turn your back on those who want to make a sincere difference.
