RD was nice in the way he gave your rank Ikeb. He made it "General PITA" instead of "*A* General PITA", so he showed you respect for all the hard effort you have put in both here, as well as in at the old CC forums. :-)

:lol: Never thought of it that way. So I'm a General PITA as opposed to Captain PITA. And here I though I was doing my job being a general PITA. ;)

Yes, looks better but how about substituting penguin with KIWI since it all originates from the 'Land of the Long White Cloud' :wink:

Yeah I do like those better.

Do folk associate Kiwi with NZ enough...our Aussie neighbours would no doubt, UK, Europe, South Africa, Micronesia....just not sure about the Americas

I'm sure there are lots of Americans who have no idea what that creature on the cans of shoe polish is, but no harm educating them.

I remember when I was little, there was a comic strip around here called "Kiwi." The name let people know what the character that looked like a hairy ball with legs and a beak was. It was popular with kids, since it was easy enough for us to draw, though I don't recall it being particularly funny. It must have been some local Philadelphia/Wilmington area thing, as I have never seen any reference to it since. (It may seem odd that a local strip here would feature a kiwi bird, but we also had a children's puppet show on TV called "Bertie the Bunyip," and I never did get any explanation of what a bunyip is.)

A bird you say? And here I thought a kiwi was some sort of fruity thing. :P

Not all that hard to keep straight unless your brain is frozen from being covered in snow 6 months out of the year. Not a problem for me, it is 85F / 29C here today.

So steal those and rename to Kiwi, or stick with the existing but change Member to Kiwi ?

Maybe since only the New Zealanders are really kiwis, you should choose more than one typical NZ animal. Maybe everyone can start out as rabbits, move up to sheep, then through albatrosses, skinks, and tuatara to kiwis or something like that.
