As part of the New PTS Revolution, I have invited certain reputable members to help breathe new life into political discussion as Politics@AboveTopSecret.com (PTS) Forum Subject Matter Experts (FSMEs).

Experts, Huh?

Now for those wondering, on PTS our FSMEs have a different purpose from traditional ATS FSMEs.

On PTS, I don't expect FSMEs to be experts on anything and everything related to the topics of their forums. Rather, I have chosen them to become experts on discussing the topics related to their forums because -- let's face it -- when it comes to politics, everyone's an expert.


So yes, it's possible and perfectly okay for a PTS FSME to be wrong about something. No biggie, perfection isn't part of the job description. I just want them to make you feel welcome on PTS and inspire you to contribute your best.

I've appointed the new PTS FSMEs to help evolve PTS into the best political discussion board on the Internet, and with the all-star lineup I have, I am 100% confident that we will achieve this goal.

But Who Are The New FSMEs?

I was going to post a list, but then a friend suggested we have a little fun with this.

So I'm going to leave it up to you -- my fellow members -- to find out who the new PTS FSMEs are.

Ahh, but it won't be easy! They're disguised as ATS FSMEs right now (see my FSME badge for an example), and not all of them have had a chance to post welcome messages in their forums.

This is where you come in.

Find The PTS FSMEs!

I will award 10,000 PTS Points to the first member who posts all the current PTS FSMEs and their forums to this thread. Additionally, I will award 5,000 and 2,000 PTS points to the members who are almost right and post the second- and third-most accurate lists of PTS FSMEs.

The rules:

1. The first 100% correct post in this thread will win the prize.

2. The format must be "Forum: Member" to keep things sane. Example: "Slug-Fest: Majic"

3. Posts may not be edited for any reason. Edited posts won't count.

4. There are 25 PTS forums. Not all of them have FSMEs right now. I will not appoint any more FSMEs until the contest is over.

5. The second-closest and third-closest posts will receive the appropriate award. However, once the correct list has been posted, all posts after that will be disqualified.

6. All decisions are final. However, if you catch me at a mistake, I'll hook you up in style with the mondo point love.

7. The winners will be announced here, as well as in the "official" FSME announcement post (coming soon).

8. Staff members are not eligible to participate. Certain restrictions apply. See dealer for details. Void where prohibited by law. Yadda yadda yadda.

So, who will be the first to post the complete list of PTS FSMEs?





Edit: Updated Title. Solution here:

The Official Master PTS FSME List (Eyes Only/Majic)

Edit: Updated Title. Winners announced.

WE HAVE OUR WINNERS!

Hey Majic, thats not fair.

You should at least tell us how many there are.

How will we know when the search is over, otherwise?

Oh Man! I finally run across a contest where I can win it all and what happens? I'm not eligible.

You'll know when I tell you.

And *cough* *cough* I don't see any FSMEs in that post.

Get crackin'!

But how will anybody know when to stop looking. We can't submit a list, until it's completed. How will we know when it is completed.

Catch-22!

The Forum Behind The Badge

Here's a little hint for those who may not know.

If you click on an FSME badge, it will take you to the forum that FSME is assigned to.

For example, if you click on my FSME badge, it will take you to Slug-Fest.

Semper Vigilans

Sorry semper, but:

1. Winning entries must be of the format: "Forum: FSME".

2. None of the members you listed are PTS FSMEs.

3. There's more than eleven PTS FSMEs (ooh, another hint!)

Keep trying!

DARN IT

I hate it when that happens.

I'm useless at this stuff.


Semper

Just a humble opinion'

Another Sanity Rule

To make judging easier, I add the following "sanity" rule:

9. The winning entry must be listed in alphabetical order by forum, and the forum titles and FSME names must be exactly correct. Spelling counts.

Example:

Breaking Political News: FSME name
Canadian Politics: FSME name
Candidate Advocacy: FSME name
etc.

Yeah, I can make things up as I go.

It's politics, baby.




P.S. This is another hint. Those are the first three forums on my master FSME list.

Edit: Fixed tag problem. Guess this post is disqualified from winning.


Edit edit: ...and you only need to list the forums that actually have FSMEs. Details, details!

So far, no winners.

And be sure to see the new Rule 9, above.

Some of you are getting warm, though.
