The getting started article, states there are 3 categories of people who support the day to day running of t2w, staff, moderators and forum guides. It describes the role of the staff and moderators, and even lists who they are, but I cant find any information at all about the guides.

I remember that there where where a couple of guides who where know vendors, and a couple who belonged to the vendor without badge of shame category. I just checked, and those individuals at least are no longer flagged as guides (I've just be re readng the post where you argued there was no conflict of interest in a vendor being a guide) .

Who are the current forum guides ?

Hi the hare,
When the Forum Guides ceased to be (old, old news - about a year and a half ago now), I edited that post accordingly. It appears that I didn't do a very thorough job - thanks for bringing this to my attention - I'll amend it now!

Tim.

Given that you're pretty active on T2W most days, I'm a tad surprised that it appears you've only just spotted that there are no longer any members proudly sporting a 'Forum Guide' badge. Endearing nonetheless, in an odd sort of way!

I spotted that a couple of the vendors who where selling their 100% a month systems where no longer guides, but nievely assumed that someone had finally acknowledged the clear conflict of interest.

Of course most of the little badge things stopped working (including the vendor badge of shame) during the last site upgrade...

And lets face it, quite a few of the guides are no longer active participants for one reason or another.

I do remember cygnus noir hanging up his forum guide boots. I think I might have even asked him why he jumped. How intriguing to know he was pushed perhaps you should explain why and nip the inevitable speculation in the bud.

Hi the hare,
Okay, I'll play your game of raking over (dull) history with one last post - and then you must allow me to get on with some work - pretty please!

There was never a conflict of interest while the Forum Guide project was live, IMO. No doubt, you'll beg to differ on that, we'll just have to agree to disagree.

I'm sorry to inform you that your observational powers have let you down again: the Forum Guides were withdrawn a long time prior to the last upgrade.

His conduct on the forum became incompatible with the role of Forum Guide, end of story.

Was he a Russian spy or something? Activities incompatible with status? Just say it or this will go on forever.
