Extra help and concessions

Hi! To find out what I can do, say @msg-bot display help.

Oh yes emerald you’re right it’s a TL3 thing

And Kieran has only been here 10 days which is not long enough to gain till 3 I think he have to be TL1 or 2 to edit a wiki so Kieran I can create it and then you can edit it if you’d like but you’ll be at tl 3 fairly soon

On the promotion site I’ve been banging on about this for some time and I had a conversation with my local associate director and I think that we might see some action. I have tried to engage with the forum support group but they were directed elsewhere.
I think that will change after the conversation this morning - I’m certainly hoping so - and in the meantime you and I can take actions that will further our shared desire in this front

You might like to read

on LinkedIn which gives a rather more complete description of the vision that I have been sharing for the last 2 years.
I have some traction for it elsewhere.
Clement has read it but I’m not sure of his current thoughts on embracing it. at one point I thought he was quite enthusiastic but I might be putting words inappropriately in his mouth - If so I apologise

Thanks both I will certainly try and do those tutorial things and in the meantime I will certainly ask for help!!

:wink: :polar_bear:

Ok - I have spoken to a few people and got a few more ideas.

I am going to take a few days / a week - please bear (just bear not necessirily a polar bear) with me.

I will:

Do a table / whatever and get it all in with links etc.

Try and come up with some categories - eg, initial steps, out and about, help with being recognised as disabled etc - please feel free to suggest any!

then re-review with some of the regulars etc and hopefully come up with something useful rather than my usual ramblings

Thanks all

Kieran

Be cool
:polar_bear: :wink:

plus kb remember @smeadows1975 post re employment although something on here already about that? if anyone else would care to share - send me a private message rather than clogging this up and I’ll add it to my doc / spreadsheet

I can’t find my own trust level despite the tutorials and all your help :rofl: :rofl:

Can you tell me what I am? I think I’m a regular now TL2 or TL3?

Thanks!!

Sorry to say I knew all that I really have been trying to learn!

I just couldn’t remember if member was TL2 or 3!! I knew I’d be ‘promted’ = i’m sure only the great polar bear in the sky knows why.

I’m not ready for TL3 probs. I’ll ask you guys when I finally get this thing done. will take a few days!!

But you know sometimes polar bears can wait for days just to get a bit of tasty beluga so I will stay cool

That’s alright, it’s not a wasted exercise. When a question like that gets asked, I try to write the answer for the benefit of everyone who might read this post and benefit from it :wink: I tend to that with a lot of my replies.

It;'s incedibly helpful and you have helped me lots!! I should have specified what I was struggling with - call it stroke brain and I apologise, Please please do not stop replying in the way you do.

I am lucky to have been talked through this by you ad others and I needed that.

Other people will do too.

sorry to have been flippant.

keep being helpful and obviously be cool :polar_bear: :wink:

I actually had to ask JP earlier as I got another badge and it was grey so I said to JP why is this grey and the others are coloured - gold I think, Surely this is better as it’s new?!?

He thought about it and said oh it must be bronze, silver and gold! Ah ha that makes sense!!

So i looked up on you EE and saw your progression and understood thanks to you both

May the great polar bear in the sky bless JP’s eyes and mind :polar_bear: :wink: :rofl:

Kieran have you read the post that emerald sign posted due to on trust levels?

It shows you that TL3 is granted to readers of posts. Jeff Atwood has a bee in his bonnet about people reading and he wrote the software. So you have to be present I think for 90 days and you have to have read a proportion of the activity in the last few days and stuff that is detailed in that post on TL’s

There is probably merit in leaving the time to learn the mores and conventions. If you edit your table to the point where you have the information as you want it you’ll be in a good place to create a wiki later. I could create it for you and then you’d be able to read it to but it would show his own by me unless we got a TL4 to change the ownership and I wonder if they know that that is possible, I don’t want to take idea ownership for what is clearly your great idea but I do think we could start collaborating on other improvements around here :slight_smile:

I was very familiar with this forum platform because I’ve been a member on another forum, for many years, that also uses the same platform. When I first joined this forum I didn’t recognise it at all as being the same, so wouldn’t have able to do those instructions. But over the past several months my mind has gained clarity and the fog has lifted, I’ve come to recognise it for what it is. So I’ve set my preference to that of the other forum now and it’s all coming back to me :smile:

I too benefit from replying to posts and explaining such queries as it’s also a cognitive exercise for old grey matter. If fact we all benefit from being on here and participating. It’s retraining/reintroducing our brains in all sorts of ways, such things as cognition, emotion, empathy, patience, communication, finger dexterity, problem solving…you’re doing that just by posting a question on this forum…and much more. So, you need never apologise for that :wink:

Thanks @EmeraldEyes and @SimonInEdinburgh

I ahve tried to note all the things you need to do to get trust and I do recognise that I can’t just rock up here for 10-12 days and then get a big trust level it deosn’t and probably shhouldn’t work like that!!

I have done all that I can for the moment I think I’m reading and interactiong and trying to do quotes and the tutorials etc!!

I will keep on keepin on @Bobbi

And I will stay cool. I’ll get back to all of you after I’ve done some more offline on the table / whatever…

In the mean time I will stay cool

Thanks @SimonInEdinburgh

That will help eventually and I have bookmarked it - thanks @MSG-bot

But for now I am going to do this offline and then will get back to you as for me it’s a hell of a lot easier to do it using software that I am familiar with!!

It really is helpful and (of course) will take a bit for me to get to grips with this properly but I really am trying!!
