I have been thinking of better ways to use Vintage Gruen as a means to prosper people as well as the Gruen enthusiast. Happiness of the people is just as important as the material we show here on the forum. If we try to prosper people, we become more successful, useful and a happier forum.

I am thinking about soliciting prospective mentors for the forum. Mentors who know a little more than the average Gruen collector and have a passion in a related field.

Some ideas:
-A mentor would get their own forum.
-The mentor would have full access control of their forum.
-Mentors can discuss any topic of their desire, Gruen related would be encouraged.

Mentors who are retailers and author types can take advantage and gauge the forum community on material that might be questionable for their selling/publishing. Mentors who also write papers for other organizations such as the NAWCC could find this very useful.

The benefits about having mentors is that is gives the forum community more of a sense of ownership in the forum. A comfort that there are matter experts who are real people not a pseudonym user giving advice.

Vote and reply with your pros and cons on the matter.This forum was started by many people, the many people should also own the direction that prosper the forum and make it successful.


It has nothing to do with my watch collection, it is the people I share my watch collection with that matters.
