I nominate Narwhal
for a nod of some
sort, for his good idea of moving the thread. Now, this thread has greater accessibility for all
members of our community.
I also nominate Franciscus
for his solid service as an AACW beta tester. He has provided more leads for fixes in a shorter period of time than anyone that I
can remember. If I may be so bold, I would also recommend that he be awarded "exceptional honors" of some sort, due to circumstances which I shall not make public, but which make his service all the more inspiring.
I second the nomination of Major Tom
for High Honors, as Cadre. He was one of the brightest lights to ever grace our forums, with his concise analysis, excellent writing style, and all of the many other qualities that earned my deep and abiding respect for his instructive and interesting analytical documents. It was Major Tom who enlightened us on the greatest mystery of all, in that era: Frontage
. I consider his work to be the
definitive analysis of the subject. Excellent nomination, GChristie!
I recommend that Jim-NC
be recognized for... hell, a bunch
He wrote a classic post on Experience
; he's a hugely experienced PBEM gamer; he's an enormously experienced talent as a host; he's... well, you get the idea. Jim has become a guiding light for many, here. Let's give credit, where credit is due. Jim, I intend to add your treatise to my signature library link.
I also recommend that McNaughton
be recognized for the huge
contribution that he has made to our forums' knowledge and community. People think of me as being one of the forum's foremost "artillery experts". They are misinformed, for McNaughton has already forgotten
more about artillery than I'll ever
know. That's not hyperbole, gentlemen.
Finally, I recommend Confederate
sort of recognition. Man! I have never seen anybody
come in here with guns blazin', like he's done!
The guy is friendly, good-natured, and he wants to help make our community better. He's already a Beta! That blows me away. When this guy becomes "seasoned" here, I suspect that he'll have a lot to offer us.
Gotta wrap it up, men. This WiFi hotspot is shutting down, and the queen is out in the "royal carriage", blowing the horn with Queenly impatience.
Merry Christmas to all who celebrate the holiday. May everyone's New Year be their best yet.
@George McClellan: Congrats on your decision. So... how is that Army coming along, anyway?
