Apologies for the late reply to you, and everyone else who put in recent requests. We just promoted you and few others who clearly deserved it; and for some of you, this promotion was long overdue. To all in that group, we thank you for all you've contributed over the years.
To all who are aspiring to be promoted, take a look at the posting history of Westy1975, ddcaster, flover, and others for the kind of activity that qualifies. Consistent contribution of content- original sightings, captures or webfinds is what we're looking for.
To those of you who've started posting a lot of random comments , "thanks" , and single pic low quality finds in hopes of advancing based only on your post count , you're just wasting your time.
