We did it, folks - he got the RAV. Details here:
Now about that red hair, Tedd?
NJB has published the Oracle of Tedd
I asked Tedd if I can get him to commit to dying his hair red - or photoshopping it red - if he gets the RAV. He liked the idea so much he wrote back with a plan
He said I should say this.... so this is him writing what he said I should say:
Good News Viners, I just talked to Tedd and he really appreciated all your comments and would like to thank each of you with a email someday, but he said he is a slow typer and it take him forever, he did say he even likes my new hair since it remind him of his cousin's hair which is also red and his favorite "Toy." Tedds Little Red Corvette, which is not getting any use until the doctors let him drive in a month.
Funny thing about Tedd, he thinks that I said I would dye my hair Red if Tedd gets a RAV ? Well Tedd maybe got confused he is a good guy but he said something like RiggsRoll and then that got me confused because he is a computer expert and maybe that is something he developed or he like's to do maybe ?
He did give me a example, let me see if I can do this like he told me,
Thank you for all your help with everything your article looks great and ummm BTW that new hair is really awesome with the PhotoShoping effect if this RAV thing works, I kinda like this :-) idea of yours
So there you have it, folks? If we give Tedd the RAV he might change his hair color for good.
Tedd, sorry I messed up your plan but if I quoted you as me and someone asked if you and I actually spoke.. well, let's just say I'm a terrible liar.
I am not sure why Tedd Riggs has not received an RAV yet. His work for the anti-spam group has been praised repeatedly by users and administrators alike. I think the only ones who don't like his work are the trolls and spammers he has busted but I bet even they probably respect his dedication.
He has alluded to some of that work and reporting more than 100 COH violations daily (that is more than most of us have probably reported in weeks or months)
So this is a guy who has been doing a tremendous amount of work at Newsvine. Factor in that he has been doing some of that while going through medical issues himself – see here where
