Hey Charles

I approved you and set your role as administrator.

We have several trusted admins but they dont play an active role except maybe approve certain new members. At this point I'm doing all the updating.

You will see some new functions in the "admin" tab of the member when you login.

I'll tend to the drupalgardens stuff a little later this morning.

Be back to ya
