    ... though I often have butted heads with more than one of you, I just wanted you all to know I appreciate the ongoing volunteer work you do here.

    It is always nice to see so many people that want to contribute to community.

    I think you'll find that for many of them its simply a power trip. More "editors" on here with "little man syndrome" than on any other board ive ever been on.

    The only ME I know well is Petra. She does more for UOSS than I do for my real job. She spends hours every day creating content, dealing with modding issues, attending to admin duties, fixing bugs, answering questions . . .

    She's an editor who is owed more respect than you extend, Siteswap.

    I think you'll find I said 'many' of them ... not 'all' of them. I didnt name names so how do you know I meant Petra?

    I refuse to name names as to whom I consider in the bias/corrupt/power hungry bracket and who I dont. Lets just say that there are quite a few who fall into that category. I used the term "editor" loosely to encompass anyone who has stratics mod rights...

    I'd like to take this time to say, on behalf of myself, that you're all very welcome for all that I do.

    well, aren't you raining on this parade? yeesh, get rid of that chip and contribute if you believe the quality/quantity is not good enough.

    as for the volunteer staffing it's the best around and you damn well know it.

    LOL please refer to my posting history. I have NO issues calling out people when I feel it is warranted.

    I also think, however, we should just as much celebrate and thank those that do things to better a community... and I think they all deserve some credit for working towards a common goal.

    Good point. Thanks to all the folks who voluntarily build Stratics content, regardless of staff badge.

    I think it's safe to say it takes the overall community to make Stratics work. Between the volunteer staff, and those who contribute content w/out a staff tag you have the makings of a great site. Add in the mostly fun interaction and color me happy!

    I'm turning this thank you right back atcha for keeping us on our toes, informed and busy busy 13 yrs later :)

    Thank you also for permitting the discussion of potential "classic" shards.

    Granted, it's a contentious issue for many current and former players, but let's just say that at the very least, it does produce some "interesting" discussion. ;)

    I actually want to say thank you to everyone on staff and everyone who is not on staff but are always willing to lend a hand. Its amazing how quickly people know you will need help with something and offer to help, before you even know you need it. You all are wonderful!!!

    Jumping on the bandwagon here too, but for good reason... good things need to be said about good people. And the team here at Stratics has been doing good things for the community for many years.

    Thank you to everyone here at TGN Stratics. *raises a glass to the future* Salud! [​IMG]
