What about "All hail King of Robots" instead?



How did you manage to get to be an "Uber Geek" by just saying the same stuff over and over again? Reminds me of some people I know...

DrCheese (I interact with people and reply to them)


And seriously, 51 +1's?

Lol!


And that trusted staus is really dubious. Would you trust some dude called Peter Reader? Seriously?


I thought he was just John Readers brother.....
or alter ego

PhantomNVD:
macuser: I'd say go in the complete opposite direction, and actually build on PeterReader's features.

I would like to officially suggest a feature called 'Hey, it looks like you're...'

And so when you detect they are writing a post in say Offers in Wanted, Peter Reader would say 'Hey, It looks like you're selling something, would you like me to show you the rules'
I also think there should be a re-design of the UX elements of PeterReader, to bring him up to todays standards.  I'm thinking a slim line metal look, but with a face so it doesn't look too daunting - Almost like he/she has a real personality. 
I've found a great photo on the internet to give you an idea of what I'm talking about [ragged slash to remove the pic]


He'll NO!

Clippy died with XP, Please, PLEASE don't resurrect the bustard!!!

*edited out that pic*


Google has already done it....

It's actually a mix of Peter Lambrechtsen (Telecom) and John Reader (Vodafone) because they always had to reply with those questions/comments...

I think he should be renamed "Re-Peter Reader" as he says the same old things again and again...

I Lol'd :)

MAybe just make a default 'suggestion' box for the specific forums 'create post' with the basics required for help, and/or a 'prompt before the post goes live for any user with less than 100 posts?

e.g.

I see you're asking about your speed.

Have you shown:

"x"
"y"
"z"

"click here for an example of what this means" might be a good closing too?

What, not have Peter Reader as our Uber Geek 62+1 Trusted Geekzone Subscriber Spy! All the hard work he does and people want to make him redundant. If we do that he may choose not to continue as a Subscriber the next time he has to pay his membership fees.

no worries... 
even 'he' acknowledges the value of the suggestion and doesn't seem too upset, as long as we acknowledge his greatness too (!)
