I noticed after being absent for a couple of days that retired oracles have been given just that the title of retired oracle. A long overdue recognition of their significant contributions to the community and a way for new members to give them the respect they deserve. Although not all former oracles have been given this title.....by choice? I appreciate public mobile making this change to properly recognize all the hard work they have put in the past, present and undoubtedly the future.
Hey @Anonymous , yes I am still a happy PM customer.
I will probably always have at least one account with PM for as long as PM exists.
I nearly left Public Mobile during the Fall Promo price increase fiasco. I had actually placed my order with Koodo but then changed my mind and backed out. Now, it would be just plain silly for me to leave Public Mobile, especially after accumulating things such as loyalty rewards. Sure, I'd much rather have full LTE speeds, which I haven't had since abandon my Fall Promo plan for a different one with more data, but the rewards make up for quite a bit of any Public Mobile shorcomings.
@ShawnC13 Whoops....i did something to my keyboard in the last 10 days or so and it autocorrect the weirdest stuff. I've had to correct entire sentences....and it's not even correcting typing or spelling mistakes! It just randomly decides it prefers a word that in no way relates to the original. But I do have that issue with @LurganleUk and @GR can't tag either one of them if they are not in the thread thus in the tag pop up window.
@imm1304 Sorry about that.....
I'm happy to hear it was just a pm oversight. Par for the course. The recognition is richly deserved. We'll pop the champagne on Monday with @imm1344 (another one I can't tag?!!) Is there a ribbon cutting ceremony? Speeches? Cake.......? I can bring a pie......your choice?
p.s. @computergeek541 the pie pic is a metaphor....
I’ve heard of people being forced to retire early, would those people not officially be retired.
@Rockdaddy22 Sounds reasonable to me, but perhaps you would need to private message Tiana_V as to why you never got the official invite...it might just be an oversight as you know things don't always go as planned around here. Good luck and maybe we'll see the new title next to your name soon? 😊
@darlicious, as I said we were told this was offered to Oracles who stepped down recently and srlawren an original Oracle. Rockdaddy even stated that he did not stop down, that is between him and PM but if you don't step down voluntarily from a position I don't see that as retiring
You made me go reread my posts.....and now I see where you might get that impression. I have probably wrongly assumed in not offering @Rockdaddy22 his deserved recognition by bestowing him the title of retired oracle (im assuming again)...that he did not retain his oracle powers. But really I was just trying to support his bid to be treated equally as his peers.
Sigh....i am so often misunderstood! You know is always fight for what I think is fair.
@darlicious are you seriously suggesting that all members should have the ability to move threads not just mods, oracles, and retired oracles?
