New Rank - SME

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Evil_Adjutant, Sep 16, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just to let you know, there's a new rank in town. Very few of them being used just now but it means

    Subject Matter Expert - not "Small and Medium Enterprise".

    It's for those users who post with official capacity. Nothing more than that.

  2. I have to deal with SME's every day of the week....I have yet to find one that actually knows anything about the Subject he or she is meant to be an Expert in :)
  3. Expert from ex- meaning has been, spurt - meaning drip under pressure?

    What is a definition of an expert? Someone who comes from more than five miles away.

    World-class expert? Someone who comes from more than five miles away and brings coloured slides...
