Member of the Month – January 2009


We have gotten SO many reports about Jacquelyn’s kindness and helpfulness as a Tour Guide. She has done so much to help new (and even not-so-new) members navigate the site, and they write in spontaneously to let us know. Some of the comments we have gotten:

“Somehow I got stuck putting my wish list on a vacation hold, though I have no plans to go anywhere any time soon (unfortunately). I could not find a way of removing the hold, so … I contacted a Tour Guide. She was very, very nice and competent and I’d like to mention her by name: Jacquelyn O. (JJO)”

“Due to the hurricane, I was out of electricity for 9 days. It just got up tonight, and I found that books had been ordered and eventually cancelled due to my not responding….[Jacquelyn’s] answer sure took care of a lot of questions I have for now and for the future!! She is terrific.”

“I’m not very computer-savvy…I was feeling a little intimidated, but Jacquelyn helped me get started and now I feel at home.  She is really wonderful – give her a gold star!”

I’m sure I asked her questions she has answered many times before, but she didn’t act like that was the case…She seemed really glad to help me and was very friendly…”

Jacquelyn, you have really made an impression on the members who ask you for help – you are a behind-the-scenes angel and a true PBS Ambassador!  We thank you for all of your help and kindness Guiding other members.  You are our Member of the Month for January.  Congratulations!

If you have any nominations for Member of the Month, submit them to us here.  Your nomination will not “expire”–anyone you nominate will have a chance at getting Member of the Month if enough nominations accumulate over time. Each month the person who has the most votes accumulated when the Newsletter goes to press gets to be Member of the Month and gets a newsletter mention and a nifty MoM icon to wear on profile and forum posts with pride.  So go for it! Tell us who’s helped you in the Forums, who’s been a great swapper, who in your opinion is a credit to PBS.  We are keeping a list of all the nominated members.  Who knows–one of them might be YOU!
