Joining the official MyBB team
2 days ago, I joined the MyBB Team as a Support Rep. I applied for the position the day the team positions were announced, and found out I was accepted about a week before I was added to the team. This is what I'd been working towards for a while, I was hoping some places would open up, then when they did I applied as soon as I could, and now I'm thrilled to finally have my name up there in red. Giving support isn't really a new thing for me though, I practically live in the 1.4 General Support forum, but hey, I enjoy doing it and can help most people in some way, so I'm happy, and every time a new or uncommon problem is encountered, whether I can contribute to finding the solution or not, I'm learning, so it's all good. Now that I'm on the team, I'll be a bit more involved in the future of MyBB and this is something I'm really looking forward to. Being on the team also means my ridiculously high post count isn't quite so bad. This position will also give even more incentive to get my act together and learn PHP. My MySQL is getting better, but my lack of PHP knowledge is really holding me back and until I get some embedded into my brain, I won't be able to progress.
I'd also just like to congratulate the other new Support Reps, Tom.M and TomL (two Tom's with very similar usernames, confusion will ensue), and also the new members of the SQA team, D-r-a-g-o-n, dvb, Mmarzex, rcpalace, and RenegadeFan, all with a well deserved place on the team. And also thanks to everybody on the original team for selecting me.
