Lettie and Gerrie,
Actually is has nothing to do with the kudu horns but with nominations every year for active forumites with added value to the forums etc....
Wel.... let me say this, I was surprized about the number of (supporting) reactions I received per email.
My conclusion is to go on with the activities here for the Big Tusker forum and all Tuskermites.
Let's stay together as a group with our special interest for these giants. So IDíng, commenting and updating my or maybe better our tuskersite is the thing I will continue.
My friends here are more important then any other thing at this site.
Hi Aat, I suppose I am one of those who could have put in a nomination for you but due to my narrow field of interest on the FORUMS I was not even aware of the process of getting "horns" above your avatar. [ I don't even have an avatar myself ! ]
Any-case, your posting has now resulted in me finding out how KUDU HORNS "work" - now I must still find out how to nominate a person.
But, be it as it may, you are doing a great job on the Big Tuskers thread, please don't let the current situation come between you and sharing your interest with like-minded people. Judging from these pages there is a lot of us with a Big Tusker interest and your contributions form a major part of the fun on this thread.
Also, your TUSKERSOFAFRICA website has now been established as a general reference document and it will be interesting to know how many people use it and for what purposes. I am sure it is the Big Tusker tracker with the highest public participation - I doubt if SANPARKS have any-thing more complete and will not be surprised if they actually refer to it from time to time.
So old chap, don't despair and keep up your participation.
I am sure there is a large silent bunch of us out there who REALLY appreciate your work and contributions.
Lettie and Gerrie
