Some time ago, we tested the concept of "Forum Subject Matter Experts".

After much delay, the test is a great success.


The board code base has been modified to accept this new "expert member" position for any ATS forum. These members have demonstrated either a leadership role in discussion, an excellent topical track record, or credentials specific to their assigned forum.

The FSME's have the ability to applaud contributors to their forum... and applauds from FSME's are worth double points. They can also top and bump threads, edit posts, and apply nominal "post warns" for 1-liners, large-quotes, and copy-and-paste posts.

We'll be seeing new FSME's pop up as time goes on. If you have a suggestion for a great FSME for an unassigned forum, just let your ATS councilor know (the council and DISC have responsibility for picking FSME's from this point forward), or send in a suggestion.

Good stuff.


Can I also make a humble request that a list of Councilors & FSMEs and their respective "jurisdictions" be added to the main page as part of the staff listing for purposes of easier reference?

SO, I have an excellent candidate for resident expert in all politics. He is Odium. Shall I post his creds here, or in a u2u?

He has been excellent contributor to PTS and a well spring of knowledge. I fully support his candidacy for this position.

Also, if you have professional certifications or honors, you can simply stick the logo in your Avatar image (like me) which is just as cool as a FSME, but you don't get the extra benefits of editing posts, making stickies etc.

How does one do that?

I've been able to find the facility to do it.

Well, in my case, I am DCSE and Network+ certified. When I was awarded those certs, I was given a logo to use on business cards, etc. I just took those logos and edited them into my avatar image.

Well one thing I have noticed on AP is that the best FSME are not not mods . This would be because members of staff have less time to devote to the role of FSME. Since mods can give out applause already it is kind of pointless to give them the same again .

This is an old thread I don't even think that FSME's have the same ability's to give out applause and to sticky threads . The experience of FSME's proved to very good in same cases on the old AP board . The failure to appoint members who were not already moderators to the role was counter productive at times .

Cheers xpert11 .
