I wonder if any of the Forumites may be of assistance. Pray tell, what are the little Kudu horns next to Forumites' names? Some are colored in, some are not...

I have scoured the Forums and cannot seem to find the answers... I am pretty sure someone knows... and also knows how to get one? I want a whole brace of horns for my name... but don't know how.

SeanP, I am sure some helpful person will post the link about Kudu horns. We tend to take it for granted that everyone knows what it is about.

Basically it is a peer based voting system where we send in nominations for who has contributed in a helpful way towards conservation and the forum community.

You might well be surprised one day to see a nice little horn next to your name. :wink:

I have many wonderful stories to share with everyone. Only problem is trying to figure out how to post photos. I cannot upload any of my iPhotos.

Hmmmm .... buy a Samsung :twisted:

If you can load them to flickr (on your phone), and then have access to a pc, it will not be a problem. I still have to figure the way to get the url to grab off the flickr app to post on the forums. On the web page, it is easy.

Trip reports often get nominations. They are greatly appreciated. Every trip report has its own unique flavor.

Wishing you all of the best SeanP. You will have a nomination from my side once you follow through Saraf's advice. :P FYI as you can see I too don't have a single kudu horn :redface: , I've realized eventually that I probably wont ever receive one either because I don't contribute enough.... but I also realized that I can still enjoy the forum everyday, share photos and insights were relevant, participate and marvel at the photos and opinions of those with or without 'horns'. I love this forum for all it's worth....horn less :mrgreen: To all with horns........:congrats:

Hi Sean, I think I might nominate my first Kudu(os) to you for the stories you have come up with so far: leopard injured; elephant overturn a car, leopard in camp and not forgetting the Wintersweet Acokanthera oppositifolia what ever that is!! I have yet to google that.
Do you work for yourself or have a very understanding employer???
