Since I’ve tweaked the navbar, some of you may have noticed a new page (that was mentioned on the Latest Activity too). Bearded Gent of the Week is going to change to Bearded Gent of the Month; this is changing for several reasons. First is I believe to be Bearded Gent is more important then a weekly affair since I consider the BGOTM to be an Ambassador for The Beard, not just a good, active member; someone who exemplifies a modern bearded man to a fairly non-bearded society. The second reason is costs; the newer BGOTW’s have received only Beard Wash as a prize, due to shipping costs. By changing it to a monthly post, I can ensure winners will get not only the Beard Wash, but the Beard Saver too (app. a $40 USD value)! The BGOTM will be noted by the Blue Crown on their profile pic, and be featured. The BGOTM will most likely, be noted on the Fan Page on Facebook, the page Bearded Gents, and noted on Twitter too.
I will be choosing 5 weekly Top Members and featuring them based on The Buzz and will be noted by a Gold Star on their profile pic and will be noted on the Fan Page on Facebook.
(Gosh I hope I can remember all of this! lol)
I’m also thinking about appointing administrators of specific groups. As administrator you’d be able to steer discussions and create pages perhaps for sub-topics, write articles, etc. Right now it’s in the thought process still, but if any of you may be interested in a particular group, let me know via message and as soon as I make a firm decision, I’ll let you know and give you a title and appoint people.. ALL topics of discussion in the groups must be in good rapport with the Site Rules.
February 15th, 2013 marks the Fourth Anniversary of The Society of Bearded Gentlemen and I’m most happy, grateful, and appreciative for all the support, fun, and camaraderie we’ve developed over the years! We make new friends and we find old friends here too. We’re also nearing 3000 Members of fine bearded men and fans of The Beard! I also want to thank you all for talking up the site; word of mouth is the best advertising in the World! More thanks to those who’ve made donations to the site over the years to help keep us on-line; couldn’t manage it without you and the support!
