Power User Profiles: Skybandit

So, I was going through the old PUP's last week and I thought to myself "Hang on, there's someone missing here. You're not seriously telling me he hasn't done a PUP yet?" I actually searched the category and his name in the side bar to confirm it, so sure was I that either I'd just missed it or it hadn't got put in the right category, but nope. So, after kicking myself for not noticing that this long-standing and valuable member of the community has gone unrecognised for so long, I contacted him and got him to do a profile. He has a highly recognisable style, notable for his use of bright silver-age style colour schemes and often hilarious pastiches that has often landed him near the top of many a CDC since the days of Jeff's judging to the present. So it give me great pleasure to finally announce the Power User status that is long overdue to Skybandit.

    Come to think of it, maybe moderators could have a way to ‘mark’ PUPs, chronic ‘trouble’ users, etc., for their own ease?

    @JR: as a new feature of heromachine, it would be convenient for you to be able to mark profiles or keep lists of winners or behavior issues, etc? I’m not familiar with the software involved, but it’s likely possible. Bring it up to Ben and Jeff?
