Is there a list of all the members with Green lettered titles?

In each forum on flyertalk there is someone who represents a company from car company reps, to airline and hotel reps. Is there a list of all of them?

And shouldn't there be a list of them next to the moderators box and people online?

Thank you.

Good question. That would be helpful, even if it would need to be maintained manually. Can someone from IB or SanDiego1K (or anyone) answer whether there's a vBulletin feature to list those folks? If not, who is responsible for company rep liason? SanDiego1K? If there's not vBulletin feature, perhaps we could start a thread in an appropriate place with the full listing as OP?

I am the person responsible for determining who gets the green handle. We're fortunate in that company participation has grown considerably over the past couple years as more and more companies understand the strength of FlyerTalk and the value of participation. We at FlyerTalk have made big steps forward in recognizing this participation. Roughly two years ago, we began to use green to designate the company rep. Then just in the past few months, we updated the field under the handle to show company affiliation. Unfortunately, there is no automated way to show a list. Everything that is done is done by hand.

Would you be willing to gather a list? Obviously it's fairly low priority, but it would be very helpful, IMHO.

Thank you.
Not necessarily in each forum. Many fora have designated company reps if the company is willing to do so, which requires that one or more staff members have FT work as part of their job descriptions and that they have the authority to speak for the company, attempt to solve problems and sometimes make commitments on behalf of the company. There's a real cost in employee time for this, so we should be very grateful when company reps are provided; they're usually very good.

In addition, many fora have employees who visit and post regularly in an unofficial role. Their usernames do not appear in green, but in some cases it's well known who they are. Other employees are careful to avoid letting their employer identify them. Much depends on the employer's policies about social media participation.
