Here is a good laugh!

Being fairly new to the Forums, I hadn't quite checked out all the details on everything...

When I first started perusing them, I assumed the rivets under everyone's name indicated a rating on their technical mastery and experience with AS mechanics. So I was pretty excited when a rivet appeared under my name after going through all the steps of repairing my solar system successfully as per everyone's instructions.

I thought that someone figured I was getting smarter! Then two rivets appeared and I was truly walking around smiling, practically glowing with self confidence.

Then while waiting for responses to my thread, I found Janet's "Forum 101" and discovered the true meaning of the rivets. Poof! went my self esteem. Now I know it just means I talk a lot....

If rivets were given for journalism (your bear story) I believe you would be a rivet master ....... maybe a best selling wilderness adventure author might be your next career choice? .....

I agree. You may talk a lot, but you talk VERY WELL.

ROBERTSUNRUS, You are definitely the rivetmaster!

I couldn't do that drunk or sober, even with the entire Air Force guiding me in....
