Rants and Raves seem the place for this. Awhile back, I mentioned in one of the Kid's raves an organization called the A2 Files Strike Team. That can be found here This is an elite group of modders who personify everything good about the A2 Community. My question to you is - Who are they? Nominate someone here and then explain why you did so. As an example here are some.

Achilles - For his brilliant work on Art of War while creating an entire new race, the Metathrans, who are very very different from anything else we've seen, yet mesh perfectly with A2. Also for being generous with both his time and good advice to other modders.

Chiletrek - Cylon Resurrection ship. And for doing all the ships and things no one else does. Anybody can make a GodShip. But how many besides Chiletrek care enough to do a better Ferengi Marauder?

Jetfreak - For uploading so many great pics to the PotD queue, my great grandchildren will probably not see my last submission. =p They are really well done and much improved in quality over his first ones.

Yacuzza - for all of the Midnight Universe mods. These create an environment that is so jaw-droppingly beautiful, I sometimes forget that I am playing and get beaten by the AI.

Well there you go. Please help me add to this list. If we add enough people, maybe we can strong arm freyr into coming up with a unit insignia or something.:deal:

That's a great idea. We can have a hall of fame of sorts. It can be something for a new modder to strive for. I personally love Terradyhnes work, those ships are right off the tv screen. His TOS ships rock.

The Starfleet Kid.

In short, 77 files and 62 POTD's in just 6 months.

For comparative reference, in the 2? years I have spent on the site I have done 123 files, and 97 POTD's.

Despite a small avalanche of changes on our backend system, including the upload system (which has led to a massive increase in the number of submissions) he's near single handedly kept all the files on the site, most of which are on the site before anybody else has had time to notice they are in the que. Despite the number of submissions being higher than they ever been in the history of the site the average time for files submitted, to being checked and approved on the site must now be the lowest ever.

Its now rare to see a file that's been sitting in the que for much longer than a couple of hours.

Most people don't realise how much of a time sink these sort of activities are, and usually only notice when things aren't running at their usual high standards. For the past 6 months he's really been the one person setting those standards.

Sounds like a good idea, here's a few from me: Ash/Tycoon - He's done some truly great things with A2 for Zero Hour and beyond, and he clearly cares a lot about the community. K7A - For making Dogs of War a spectacular looking mod that I can't wait to play. Epytron Omega - An extremely helpful community member who can model with the best of them. Majestic + Syf - Proving that teamwork can go a long way to making a great mod, and that low poly modelling can be equally as high quality as higher poly modelling. I'm sure there are more, but I don't want to leave none left for the rest of you :)

Well, I see it more of a way for people to say thanks than anything.
