So... I read up on his projects, looked as his work, reviewed the certification guidelines, and tried to give him an appropriate certification (based on what I could quickly learn).
Still no change. Very weird.
I'm quite bewildered by this trust metric. One very generous (but, IMHO, undeserved) master-level certification was enough to drag me up from observer to master. But the combined efforts of quite a few people aren't helping aaron at all.
MFTL. Wow! Between my short-term job at MIT (helping implement a funcional programming language) and my hobby (designing a functional/imperative/OO language), I'm beginning to find a whole bunch of good answers to design questions. It's nice to work with people who are much smarter than you are. ;-)
Poll: Do I dare to open up port 80 on my cable-modem system, and let people access my language design Zwiki? Or is that just begging for script kiddies to open fire at Zope and various Apache modules?
