I’m starting this topic to introduce you personally to our Ambassadors. (If you’re not familiar with the Ambassador program, read this description.) Over the next few weeks, we’ll have some conversations with the Ambassadors to help you get to know them as real people rather than just usernames and funny avatars. Through the process, we’ll also launch a separate thread to get to know you, as well.
The Ambassador program has a long history, but instead of going into excruciating details about that history, I thought it would be fun to start with an interview from our “First and Favorite” Ambassador, just to kick things off.
@billmeek was one of our original Ambassadors, participating in the Republic Wireless Community before the first phone was ever shipped. He was the first member to earn 10,000 community “points” on the former platform and personally helped thousands of members with amazing speed and problem-solving skills. Although he no longer participates in our Community, he has remained a good friend and graciously agreed to help me get this topic underway. (Some of our current Ambassadors were feeling a little shy about being featured individually!)
Hi @billmeek! Thanks for being willing to answer some questions for our Community. Our longtime members still remember you and ask about you, even though it’s been a few years now since you’ve participated publicly in our Community. Let’s start with a question about how it all began: What first attracted you to Republic Wireless?
