I didn't realise that Post Reporter is a contribution badge - of course we will not touch that badge.


In case you are using Pliny, I am repeating the message, because the links don't work there:

Smij - Formerly Jimster

Hi Milla,

Not sure if you realised this, but I'm ex-staff (in fact, I'm still at the BBC - probably in the B-Ark). I helped set up the Artists, initially helping Mina and then looking after it full time. I illustrated hundreds of entries - not all of them credited. Also, for a time, I was the longest-serving continuous staff-member (eventually overtaken only by Natalie).

Admittedly I don't have the time to pop back as often as I'd like, but if there's any way of allowing my contribution to continue to be recognised, I'd really appreciate it.

Best wishes,

Jim

Hi Jim,

I did know you were former staff, and I shall do what I can to make sure you get the appropriate badge for that! (I apologise for the standard form message, I blame the "system", it shows 140 persons in active volunteer schemes. And that's not counting groups we don't actively use) But do come visit more often, I know people miss you! Off the Communications PS U14914070 is a conversation called The Staff Room. Why don't you pop over and grab a cup of smiley - coffee?

And we also hope to get credits on illustrations working, probably in the next rebuild, so if you want, you could contact Tavaron
U1314679 and let her know which ones.

Hope to see you soon!
