    Joe Hadsall - New Forum Director

    I'm happy to announce Joe Hadsall as the new Ellusionist Forum Director!

    Joe is going to bring some new ideas to the forums that should be engaging and a blast to be a part of. Joe's enthusiasm is infectious and he has a great big pair of ears listening to what YOU want here at Ellusionist.

    Shout out to RJ for the eons of time, passion and love he has put into this place. RJ will continue as lead moderator here to continue doing what he has always done best, guiding, mentoring and being a bastion of help when needed.

    Joe and the rest of the group are going to continue to kick out new contests, events, and some special secrets that are being built behind the curtain. Those secrets will start revealing themselves very soon.....

    Congrats, Joe. Now turn up the music and pass the ammunition...

    Guys,

    This is truly fantastic news for you all. Joe is going to rock the forums. I respected this dude from day one, and it has only grown as I have watched him take on new duties, and to do them so well.

    I am sticking around and still being bossy, so don't worry. I think Team Ellusionist just took a giant step forward.

    Can you keep a secret?
    So can I!

    I guess I should never have told Joe what I really think about him.

    Truly impossible. The gods insisted the mold was broken when Roy popped into this world.

    But massive congratulations to Joe - and RJ it's good to know you'll still be doing your good stuff here.

    It's heartening to see that E continues to smile, blossom and bloom while much of the world has its teeth pulled in the recession.

    Wow. Mixed emotions about this one. Congratulations must of course first go to Joe for being recognized for the massive amount of effort he puts into every task he's given. Keeping the content rolling on the blog, being an active and knowledgeable voice here at E, and keeping us informed of the goings on in the dungeons of Ellusionist. I swear, had it not been for Joe, Rick Astley and Billy Joel I would not be in this business.

    Some of you might not know this, but Joe actively promotes E on other forums as well, dropping little tidbits of information to those who are interested in the seedy underbelly of the magic world - things like admitting E taints the water supply to get you to buy more cards, and dropping the bomb that Brad doesn't own an iron... (How do his shirts stay so crisp?) oh wait - JBone let that one slip.

    So Congrats to Joe for being officially recognized as Forum Head Honcho.


    I was saddened at first by the news as I thought that it meant RJ would be leaving us, but alas - we're still graced by his presence as Lead Moderator. Glad you're sticking around Uncle Bob, the place wouldn't be the same without you. Congratulations to you both on your new positions, looking forward to what this might mean for the future of the forum.


    All the best,

    JS.

    I have a Question To Joe: is it possible for someone to excel higher than "registered user" and not work for Ellusionist?

    Edit: Example: Daz, how would i become an "elite member"

    Elites, Retired Elites, and Moderators do not work for Ellusionist.

    The best way to become an Elite is not to ask how to become an Elite. Simply being a knowledgeable, active, friendly and contributing member on the forums will put you on the right path. Through consistency of posts you will be recognized if you have Elite potential. Simply be yourself, forget about becoming an Elite, and enjoy the forums. If it's where you belong, it's where you belong.

    There was previously also the titles of Ellusionistant Ambassador - who were those who basically greeted new members and helped them find their way, and Apex Members - who were those recognized as being on the right path to being an Elite - however both positions have now been abolished.

    For further info, just search 'Elite' in the search box.

    Hope this helps,

    JS.

    Congrats Joe!

    I'm curious as to what the next "secret" is. Hopefully it's Rich Ferguson's next little miracle. I've been waiting for that effect for a long time now..
