Yay! I've been loving your posts guys (and frankly I thought most of you were pollinators already before I was)

Congrats Joseph.

I had a quick look but couldn't find any direct info - what exactly does the "pollinator" designation mean?

Hi Joseph,
I have enjoyed your thoughtful posts for awhile. Your climate is quite different from mine so hopefully I'll continue to learn more. Welcome!

Hi Michael -

Here's a message where Paul defines a pollinator: message

p.s.: Ha! Thanks, Michael for noticing and remediating my error! This post has been edited to fix the link, but you can see what I was pointing at, in Michael's quote, below.

Thanks...

Your link was broken (missing a colon!)

paul wheaton wrote:Currently, a pollinator (a non-staff person who's account has been "blessed" because they have so many apples and they are generally regarded as an excellent contributor) has the ability to hand out one apple per day.

A volunteer (staff) can hand out three apples per day. Stewards can hand out gobs of apples each day.

Thank you all for the warm welcomes! I am so excited to be a pollinator, though I really don't feel worthy to join the ranks of so many very knowledgeable people!
