Vip - happy 2014!

OK, I've got to admit it - I'm not earning the badge. I haven't recommended anything in ages, and haven't been able to get to Peer Review in weeks. Life doesn't allow me to have decent stretches of time to read, and if I've not read, I can't recommend. smiley - sadface

I'm really sorry to no longer help out, but I think it's unfair of me to be a Scout when I'm not actually doing the work.

All the best to you lovely people. smiley - smooch

I hope that at some stage you do return to Scouting. I always found your comments to be very thoughtful and helpful, and when you did comment the quality of your reviews more than made up for the fact you did not have the time to comment often due to understandable home and family commitments. You obviously spent some time thinking about the article and what you were going to say, which anyone who has written anything for Peer Review appreciates.

On behalf of all those whose articles you have reviewed, I would like to thank you for all of your greatly appreciated comments.smiley - applause

Thanks BB, that was what I was aiming for when I reviewed, so it's lovely to know I hit the mark.

I may occasionally get time to do the odd review - you don't have to be a Scout to review! - but as and when I can. Who knows what will happen as time goes by. smiley - smiley

Hi Vip

(just came across this post today) smiley - sadface

I am so sorry to discover that you'd given up Scouting. (having been away myself for many months) I can only echo what Bluebottle said. The door will always be open for you, if you'd like to return to volunteering.

I'd like to say how grateful I've been to have seen your tact and thoroughness in reviewing and helping people through peer review. You will have left a legacy of your own in many an Approved Entry, and I'd like to thank you on behalf of all those Researchers that you've helped.
