Now....let's see if I got this right....[it's been a little while].

Long ago, in a Galaxy far, far away [March, 2001], was created.

Slowly, evolving out of the Primordial Swamp there came Users.

With the relentless March of Time there were Promotions.

This is but the latest of them.

Congratulations, one and all....

Americans.....Canadians....Aussies....Males....Females....we have them 'all' this time. 

It's time once more to recognize those amongst us who have been seen "doing good things" in the World Of Skinning.

Some said it wouldn't happen.....that'll be because  'one or two' attempts went a bit wobbly with site updates, etc...Many "appy polly loggies" [as Alex would say - ACO]...


Congratulations to all [albeit a wee bit late-ish]....

On July 24th, 2001 I received an email from Johanne Chaine [Alexandrie] informing me I'd been accepted as's newest Wizop.

The only reason I 'remember' the date is that somehow I managed NOT to lose the email after a decade of new systems/computers/whatever.

The list of CC's is a veritable who's who of the world of Skinning way back then.

iMike, Shoggot, Renato C. Veras Jr, Patrick Ford, Migellito, David Knott, Brad Wardell, Kris Kwilas, Snoop...

I am lousy with dates and such.....but as long as I remember my Wedding Anniversary and Terry's birthday all is well....


One date that Hankers reminded me of [dunno how he does it] is June 24 [and it is that already now, here in Australia, so....]

Happy Birthday, Frogboy.'s [and all of Stardock's] members are all "numbered" [eg, I'm '23']  and so it goes that Brad is Number '1'.

But he's more than 'just'...

Oh, dear....I kept a lookout and still missed it by a day....

I joined on March 21, 2001 ..... and that would have been effectively 'Day One' for the site publicly.

Ah, time flies when you're having fun....

Congrats to and thankyou, Stardock, for giving us all somewhere to 'play' .....
