I am gir bot! A rather limited bot buried deep within the bowels of this forum software. I come to life once in a while to post about my favorite things!

Today I am programmed to announce thirteen promotions.

These four actual living, breathing, meatspace people have been promoted from "steward" to "master steward" for the rest of this month!

Nicole Alderman

Oh! And I like this actual living, breathing, meatspace person so much that I am giving them endless tacos for the whole month! The tacos don't do anything, but they're tasty for your soul. Enjoy!

Judith Browning

Well done all!

What this doesn't show is how hard the stewards had to scramble to keep up with the gardeners this month.  They've been working crazy-hard.

Nope, you've maxed out your pay grade.  To get to the next level would involve a promotion to gardener.

Thank you all for making Permies a lovely spam-free and troll-free place to learn and share. Congratulations on your well-deserved promotions!

I’ve been scouring this site to try and figure out what these titles mean—pollinator, steward, gardener, etc. They seem to correlate with the number of posts someone has made, but I’m sure there’s more to it than word count. Can somebody direct me to the page that explains this?
