I have a question and I thought about posting it in the Geek U forums but then I thought everyone might learn from this.

What's the difference between the different mid level positions here at GeekstoGo? We have Malware Tech, Tech Staff and Malware Expert. Do they all have completely different responsibilities and permissions or can they all see and do the same stuff that the others can do making the title just a title?


Edit: Edit: I edited my edit.

Don't know about the others, but I have no "super powers". :) Pretty much answer posts and that's it for me. No special mod goodies allowed for me.

I'm thinking you should edit out your edit, buddy :) :)

Anyways, a Malware Staff is someone who has gone all the way through GeekU and is deemed competent to remove malware by him/herself. As you've probably figured out, this is pretty impressive :)

A Tech Staff is someone who has graduated from the Tech Academy. You don't apply for the Tech Academy; rather, you are selected for it by one of the TA admins. Basically it's like Malware Staff for the tech forums (e.g. Windows XP).

A Malware Expert is someone that knows so much about malware removal that it's scary. They're also often tool developers, like S!Ri or sUBs. An Expert might also be someone who's a respected teacher or admin at another forum, like 'KotaGuy. Basically, an Expert knows as much as a GUM but don't teach here.

I think MS and TS can see the same staff forums but TS have mod powers on more forums since there are multiple tech forums and only 1 malware forum. I'm not sure about Experts, since I've never been one. I think their mod powers are similar to MS but they might be able to see some additonal staff forums.

Looks good Big B! :) :)

The color for GloMo/GUM is slightly off; it's a darker purple :)

Oh, I was typing that on my iTouch and had to edit my post 3 times to fix all the typos! :)
