Dear gir bot,
Thank you for the gesture but I prefer to have no title as many of the staff already know
It is my choice, my preference, that I've been quite happy and comfortable with.

Sincerely,
your friend,
Judith

Congratulations and best wishes to all...you're dedication and good works are admirable!

Oooh, we have Master Pollinators now! I think you Master Pollinators get three apples/day, rather than just one. But, only for this month. You have to keep being awesome to keep gir bot liking you enough to make you a Master Pollinator.

And, Judith, I had NO IDEA gir bot was doing this. I don't think any of us knew. I'll work on remedying this for you! We love you too much and totally respect your wishes ♥

Well that's flattering as hell, thank you. Are there any added responsibilities I should know about,  other than innate kenning of the publishing policy?

As far as I know, the only things that come along with the Master Pollinator title are the spiffy title and the ability to  give 3 apples.

The same applies with the Master title for Gardeners and Stewards. Master Gardeners get the spiffy title and, I think, 15 apples rather than 5. Us Stewards already have infinite apples...so all we Master Stewards get is the shiny title and more people asking us for help .

Being awesome and helpful and following publication standards will make gir bot like you more and  increase your chances of being a Master Pollinator again next month.

With shiny title comes responsibility...or something like that! It's always good to be a roll model for how to "be nice."
