Lowly Peasant Seeks Knighthood

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by khuizinga, Jan 30, 2008.

  1. Hi everyone!

    After looking around on this site for a couple of weeks now - I was wondering how to become an "OTBS" member/knight.

    I know I don't have a lot of experience yet - but I have great aspirations!

    Just curious [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Ken

    The general rule is you have to be friendly towards everyone, especially the new members. You have to have been a member for a certain time frame, 3 or 6 months, something like that. And you have to have posted pictures of your smoking accomplishments, better known as QView.

    Give of your time, and your talent and you shall obtain immortality!

    Self-nomination to the OTBS will still be permitted but the candidate must post their request to a Moderator for consideration. This candidate will be held to a higher standard and closer scrutiny. Once the request has been discussed by the Moderators and the candidate deemed worthy, the request for OTBS membership will be granted.

    Once a person is nominated and the nomination has been seconded, they will be placed on a “Squires†list for a period of time.During this time, their posts and interactions with forum members will be monitored.

    welcome to the site, I admire your enthusiasm! There are some mighty fine folks who are knights of the OTBS, and alot more of us who aspire to get there. It all takes time, some work, and dedication. I am not exactly sure of the totals right now, but probably less than 10 percent of the members are nights. When I grow up someday, I want to be one too![​IMG]
