I'll use this topic to try to let you know when folks who are active on this Forum have had a major change to their plaque on the Wall of Honor.

Congratulations to Garth Getgen! He has earned enough medals to merit his own page. See it here: http://starfleetgames.com/ArtGallery/Medals%204/Medals%206/Garth_Getgen_Medal_Page.jpg

Way to go, Garth!

Not to mention the "unofficial" medal he deserves for his excellent explanation of why a certain future universe does not have a certain well known captain or crew...

Jean / SVC: Thanks, I appreciate it. Real life has taken so much of my time over the past year or more, I feel like I haven’t really done enough proofreading to earn those awards.

You know, if there’s one thing that I did that makes me the proudest, it was a “project” that lasted several months back in the late 1990s. The official “web site” back then was on Genie, but many players were posting comments and questions on the User-Group / News-Group “rec.board.games”. I saw some stuff that I knew wasn’t true but didn’t know the official answer, so I e-mail SVC. He sent me back a reply and gave me permission to post it. This started a routine where I’d send him questions and post his answers back. Soon, SVC discovered that he could read the User-Group but not post to it, so he’d send his answers and replies to me to post. This went on for months, at a time when Genie was dying out, and for a while I felt like I was the last drop of glue keeping ADB in touch with the player base. For me, it was just a hobby, but for ADB, it was their livelihood. I often wonder, if I hadn’t done that, would ADB folded and SFB gone out of print? I often wonder if Leanna curses my name -- “If that so-&-so hadn’t kept Steve’s interest alive, he could have gone back to being an engineer and made a ton of money!”


Mike, thanks for the plug. Wink

Nah, we wouldn't have folded, but it would have been harder to get back in touch.

Gary Carney keeps us on our toes when it comes to all things Omega. Along with Rick Smith, he has worked on the FC Omega playtest rules available through e23. He was just promoted to having his own individual plaque: http://starfleetgames.com/ArtGallery/Medals%207/Medals%208/Gary_Carney_Medals.jpg

Congratulations!

Thank you, thank you.

I can also be found annoying people about things LMC and M33, too. Um, hooray?

Good work, Gary.

(You should be very proud of that coveted Target award as well.) Wink

I'm... not quite so sure about that one, Rick!
