Well I'll Be BDAMB. BDAMB is Now AMB from Bham.

Well I'll Be BDAMB.  BDAMB is Now AMB from Bham.

Thanks to the AR staff and Bob Stewart for the note informing me that I've earned another star:  The coveted AMBASSADOR star. 

Yes folks, apparently I've come of age.  Suddenly I hear the sounds of the organ playing "The doors to the church are open." Amb from Bham  No more sneaking in the back door for this rain soaked Rainer.  Coming through the backdoor had and still has it's advantages (mainly sneaking up on folks and catching them by surprise with my glaring spotlight), but I can still do that through the front door and will continue to do so in the same spirit.

As you know, BDAMB from Bham was created back in August 2010 with an open letter to Newbies and for the primary goals of:

Welcoming Newbies into the AR fold

Spotlighting Newbies who jumped out in the Rain with a bang and made quite an impression

Shining a light on up and coming Newbies as evidenced by their fearless blog post, quick grasp of the AR culture and atmosphere as well as their determination to realize the full potential of playing in the Rain

Providing an open invitiation to Newbies to call on me at any time (particularly if they don't wish to or don't feel comfortable posing questions to the general membership or the AR staff)

Easing the anticipatory anxiety of the Newbie as many of us once experienced ourselves

Having a little fun and break up the monotony on occassion while inspiring new members to take full advantage of this awesome resource known worldwide as ActiveRain.

The Saga Continues.  I'll be wearing my STAR like the badge of honor that it is.

Thanks again ActiveRain!

Thanks Tni.  It is so easy to get involved here and step up to the plate when called to do so. What's even better is that for the most part, everyone really wants to see everyone else succeed. Have a great day.

Charita:  Thank goodness, if anyone deserves it it's you!  You've come up the ranks the hard way, dodging bullets (with class), from the very beginning and gracing all of us with your common sense wisdom.  You've come a long way baby! (In a short period of time)!

Hi Jane and thanks.  Tims goes by way to fast.  At times is doesn't seem like I've been around here a year.  At other times, it's like I was born into ActiveRain.  At any rate, it's a pleasure knowing you.

I missed this post while trying to be on vacation and fighting a stomach bug all at the same time.... But when I saw the Orange tab, I smiled.

Of all people who has the Orange status, you're definitely one of the most deserving.

Hugs to you from Frisco TX.

Congratulations on another well-deserving status. Was that your birthday that you got this new designation?

Thanks Loreena.  Hope you enjoyed your vacation.  I got the designation a couple of days after my birthday, but it could not have been any better had it been on my actual birthdate (12/27).

Have a wonderful new year.
