    It's Friday on St. Patrick's Day and I'm feeling like a sloth in the office.

    Who are the other awesome Mobile Nations volunteers here at iMore?

    Hi Retinella!

    Like you, on this St. Patrick's Day, I'm also feeling like a sloth in my office. I work at a University, so as you can imagine, parts of campus are crazy and other parts are quiet. The food court served corned beef and cabbage, today, and because it's Lent I could only eat the cabbage- hence, the feeling of slothness!

    I am one of the new "Trusted Members" for iMore and am looking forward to meeting and getting to know other volunteers. Have a good day everyone!

    Hey all,

    Rich here, I'm a Trusted Member, and also the Q&A Team Leader. I do a few other things around the Mobile Nation as well, at CrackBerry, VRHeads and Connectedly. And in my role as Q&A Team Leader I represent all of our sites. As some may know I got "sober" in 2002 so no booze for me today, BUT I do plan on celebrating by gathering with family and friends today. I'll probably hit an AA meeting too. lol

    Greetings all. I'm assuming (yes, I know what happens when I do that) since I'm seeing this lounge, I was approved as a trusted member?

    Same here. It seems like half the office is off today (or maybe a little more) so it's pretty dead.

    Well excellent.

    My name is Lee and after reading all the posts in the Volunteer Hub this morning I decided to apply for a Trusted Member spot. I really like logging in and seeing I have new likes and quotes which means that hopefully I've helped someone here with an issue they are having.

    I hung out over at the Android Central forums for a long time. Back in April of 2016 I decided to give up the Android devices and give iOS a shot. My wife has been an iOS user for years and she got me converted. Since that first 6 s plus, I got an iPad Pro, Apple Watch and new Apply TV, and recently upgraded to the 7 plus. Why? No reason. Just because.

    I'm also the IT guy at my company and all the sales reps have Apple devices, so I'm just about guaranteed some form of issue a couple times per day.

    Looking forward to "meeting" all of you.

    Been a Trusted Member/Volunteer for a while now. It's fun. Love helping folks with tech, especially Apple tech!

    (Don't worry, I'm not that biased. Haha)

    Anyway, glad to see a recent ramp up in Activity! Go MoNa!!!!

    Hate to be a buzz kill, but everyone can see these forums, including the lounge. Only volunteers can start threads in the lounge but everyone can read the threads in here and post in already started threads. That being said we are ALWAYS looking for good people! Just shoot James an application. (I have no doubt you are on the verge of being approved Lee, just sit tight, James is probably getting tons of apps right now)

    Also as many of you know I am the Q&A Team Leader. As explained in that thread we make sure the questions in the Ask a Question forums and elsewhere on our sites get answers quickly and correctly. I am also always looking for good people! So if you love answering questions please send James your app ASAP!

    PS existing Trusted Members and other volunteers are also welcome to apply for Q&A Team!

    It's all good. I guess the trusted member icon beside the thread and the fact I didn't see this area earlier this morning threw me off.

    I got an email from James Falconer when I found out I was a Trusted Member. Keep an eye out for it!

I do recognise a lot of usernames from the forums which is nice We have a 1 year old in the family this year so for St. Patrick's Day she had a TON of green on her haha. Was a pretty relaxing day.

    Ps. Feel free to send me a friend request and ill forward you the 206 page criteria document you need to meet before acceptance haha JK

    I'm Keith, an Ambassador here. I live in northwest Alabama. Our high today should be around 61° and sunny. I've been a member since October of 2013. I got started reading the blog site online and commenting there. I later discovered the iMore app and the forum.

    Wow, thats pretty intense haha. The most things have ever shifted for me is from say 90 degrees to about 75. Never more than that in one day. But from 60 to snowing is pretty big So in the morning I'm preparing for the beach and in the evening I'm building my own iglu haha
