    Mindy,
    I ran from FB until BYC and now I have realized how great the people are on most of the groups. I agree with Kingbee, there is always something to do and learn on FB. We are willing and waiting when/if your ready,[​IMG].

    When you get of FB you should join the Peafowl Breeders And Fanciers Group. That's where just about all of us from the BYC peafowl area are at. Mainly because we used to be part of Peacocks Only and then we got booted because the manager didn't like our advice since it's not the answer he was looking for, people stated something he didn't like, or if you tried to correct him and not take his advice.

    Las day to nominate!

    --- NOMINATION SUBMISSION FORM ---

    We are very excited to announce the Official Launch of Phase 2 of the BYC Award Program! Phase 2 isYOUR opportunity to recognize those outstanding BYC members that always enrich your BYC experience. Do you know a BYC member that is exceptional and always goes Above and Beyond in their commitment to their fellow BYC members and the BYC community? If so, we want to hear about them!

    We are now accepting nominations from the Community for those individual Members that consistently demonstrate a commitment to excellence in one or more of the following areas:
    1. BYC Educator: [​IMG] This is a Staff awarded accolade. We have changed this award to reflect only the highest standards. Only those who adhere to the highest standards of knowledge and education will be considered for this award. While nominations will be accepted for this award, the Staff will thoroughly vet each person and only those who meet/exceed the Staff's high criteria will be awarded the Educator Badge. Nominees must, among other points, have a verifiable reputation of providing information more than just "common knowledge," assist members in a positive and courteous manner, be open to feedback without getting defensive, and should maintain their good standing with little disciplinary action for rules violation.
    2. BYC Friend: [​IMG] These individuals are just plain fun and great to have around! They are our favorite comedians and enablers; our most cluckative. They are always accessible to lend a cordial and helping hand. Their enthusiasm encourages us, their empathy comforts us.
    3. BYC Spirit: [​IMG] These individuals best demonstrate ALL-AROUND outstanding service and commitment to the BYC members and community. While maybe not expert educators, they are trusted Educators nonetheless, as well as Friends to all. They are dedicated to the BYC Community as a whole, and strive to help promote, support and uphold its values and goals.
    4. BYC Greeter: [​IMG] These individuals are our BYC "Welcome Wagon!" They are the members that are most active in welcoming the new members to our community, especially in the "New Member Introductions" forum. Nominees will be judged on a) How long they've been welcoming new members; b) How many new members they welcome; and c) The quality and friendliness of their welcome.

    See all the awards here.
