What does it mean to be "Featured" and a "Colleague" here at Daniweb? How does one aspire to claiming such tag-titles?

At some point you may be picked/asked to be "featured" in the montly newsletter.

With regard to "Colleague", I think you are referring to "Team Colleague". I beleive that at some point in the past, some of the moderators that were no longer able to or wanted that role were reclassified as a "Team Colleague". I'm sure that some of the other moderators that have been here for several years can elaborate on this...

thanks JorgeM, I only asked because I just noticed them. I appreciate the heads up.

Team Colleages are personal friends of mine who helped with getting the site off the ground back in the day, founding members, and ex-moderators.

The one thing true of all team colleagues is that while none are active staff members, they were all instrumental in volunteering a significant amount of their time and efforts in the past to help shape us into what we are today.

thanks for the clarification on the "team colleages".

Also, neither of these are new ;) They've both been around for the better part of a decade. :)

... and you're welcome.

I just really haven't noticed them until the other day. I'm a lot of things but sometimes not very observant.
