Advisor Emeritus

What exactly is an Advisor Emeritus?

For the most part, a "semi-retired" advisor. I will allow our admins to provide further clarification if needed.

I was just curious because I see that Menagerie is now an Advisor Emeritus. I hope that doesn't mean she will stop logging on.

Usually, it means that the advisor has gotten very busy or has things going on in their lives that indicates they will be spending limited time here at AA. They may check in from time to time, but do not have the energies to direct to actually "working" here at AA. What alot of folks do not understand is how time consuming keeping up with things here can be..

Anyway, it doesn't mean your favorite people have abandoned the site..just that they cannot spend enormous amounts of time here. The status can also be changed back when the advisor requests it.

In Menagerie's case she requested to be made Emeritus due to some things going on outside of AA. Anyone with an Emeritus is welcome to come back as we have had some do and when they are able to return they are granted the Advisor status again.
