okay, I'm wimpy here but something else somewhere other than wincustomize. You may Jafo here and there or and Lantec is Lantec as regardless of virtual location but I don't think everyone else is, are they?
There is a question of whether it matters or not all that much what your rank is here. I think that if someone is lookign to be promoted then they are not ready. Whether someone is a skinner or a tech whiz or just a helluva nice person who's been around since before God they'll be noticed by the mods sooner or later and be promoted. And most of the time they'll be surprised because tehy don't do whatever they do for the promotion . . they do what they do becacuse it's part of who they are.
The coolest thing is that, in this community of skinners, everyone else gets to reap the benefits.
