Temporary Guru gathering page 2.0

You'll have been directed over here if you expressed an interest in the Guru1 scheme over the last decade or so.

Things have moved on a little since I originally set up this page. I had hoped to keep all the Guru stuff on-site, for simplicity, but there are a few things that will be happening during the changeover that aren't for general, public consumption... smiley - yikessmiley - dontpanic

If you want to be a part of the secret gang, you need to do the following:

  1. Sign up for an account at noesis2
  2. Post the user name of your noesis account in the "noesis User Names" thread below
  3. Pour yourself a smiley - pggb and wait. I'll see to it that your user account is "authenticated" to allow you to see the technical forums over there.

If all goes well, I'll see you over there soon. smiley - grovelsmiley - goodluck

Remember, things will get a bit confusing during the handover, but I believe that when we're all settled down again I will be in a position to hand out proper "Guru" badges as required. Just don't forget that the whole point of being a Guru is to help others - your badge is a way of flagging up your willingness to answer questions and help out with technical problems. Nobody expects you to know the answer to every question, just to be prepared to find the answer in the Help pages or find someone else who knows. Communication skills are as important as technical ability...

(By the way, if you're bored, could you swing by A87225717 and do a little proof-reading, please...)

1In the wake of the news that we are leaving the BBC, I have been pressganged into the post of "Chief Guru". Yes, it comes as much of a surprise to me as it does to the rest of you... 2If you already have an account with noesis, proceed directly to step 2
