G3 / Unvented
Description: These are guys who currently provide good solid advice on the forum, and prove their advice by quoting or linking to manufacturer specifications and help members to source the regulations behind their advice etc. They are hand-picked by their peers on the forum, and you cannot apply for this tag. You'll get spotted for being an awesome helpful member, who is always accurate.
This tag is for those who are CURRENTLY providing brilliant advice. So it is a tag that can be lost and regained as and when people spend time on our forum helping our members. We like to keep the tag current and not have lots of members with it who provided advice a long time ago and rarely post in current times when advice might have changed and their old posts may not be as accurate and current.
