    I guess its not my right to know what they're up to. Very secretive bunch. The Hidden Society of needs a cool name.

    Its great that you all want to help out, and that offer is much appriciated. In terms of "when do you become a trusted penguin" - there is no set length of membership and no set number of posts. generally either a mod/tp posts something saying "hey, <username> always gives really good replies, i would like to recommend him/her for TP status" or I decide to shake things up for whatever reason, in which case i'll ask existing mod's/tps for their opinions.

    I would like to say that we currently have a LOT of really great members on this forum, and it just is not possible to give all those members TP status in one go, or else what is the point in the TP system in the first place? ie, by "overuse" it becomes "undervalued". Unfortunatly this means that many members while they do offer great advice and are always very helpful may not always make it to TP status immediatly. At the moment im trying to keep the numbers small, and will do for the forseeable future.

    Lastly, there is no secret society or anything like that. Ya, we have a seperate forum where we talk about not-so-exciting stuff but it is an essential communications channel - imagine what chaos there might be if we didnt talk to each other

    I hope that's answered all the remaining questions.
