You are right, there's some good people in this thread who, when seeing all together renews one's faith in ATS.
But I really do miss some of the old faces who were around in the first year or so of my membership.
They were intuitive, well researched and pretty demanding.
Regardless of opinion they set high standards.
So many of them gone, for various reasons.:shk:
Just a fleeting thought, maybe the fault lies with us that we haven't stepped into their shoes?
It's also embarressing to see the almost hero worship afforded some members.
Now I'm not saying they don't deserve a bit of respect but this borders blind faith at times.
And I'm sure the members themselves feel quite embarressed and at times makes them more reluctant to contribute.
It was good to see ArMAP
getting thoroughly involved in a thread recently.
More Mods should get involved like they did before attaining Modship. (Note: Not Godship!!).
My Avatar; it's attracted a few comments over the years and some people read more into it than what there is.
I used a few avatars during the first few months here but then settled with Major Easy from Battle comic.
It simply brings back fond memories from a pleasant childhood, nothing more, nothing less.
