      Wanting to join? Then submit your application here. Wanting your rank moved up? Then submit your request along with a reason either in this journal or send me a message on my profile and it will be considered.

      As always, it's good to join and watch the All Things Simmons group which will have news posted in there. The watch function still seems to be broken but will hopefully be up and running at some point. Any stuff about Gus's birthday gift should be directed to MichyGeary who somehow manages to keep track of all that stuff.

      I think that's just about it. Enjoy yourselves!

      So while you can watch group news, I guess it's not quite alerting you yet. I'd like to keep the news there, so I'll post journals there and then tell you about it here. So I've just done that, so please go check it out. Kalvaza to take over in two weeks!

    • Stuff

      Public ATS/S.I.M.M.O.N.S. info will now be posted here so please watch the news.

      Rest of the info there, kthx.

    • Vote for your new Social Chairman!

      10 years ago

      SIMMONSboard

      False alarm. One of the nominees did not want to run. So! Please recast your votes. Vote on who you think will do the best job.

      Obviously this is going to be on the honor system that board members will not vote for themselves.

      Thanks guys!

      I'm going to be brief because I'm at work. Not that that's ever stopped me before.

      smiley9.gif The Gus-birthday ATS shirt is on its way around the globe! Robin and I have signed it and it's on its way to Eddie. He's going to send it off immediately to the next person (I'm going to compile a list of the order tonight) and that person needs to be ready to ship it off immediately as well. Unfortunately, we're a little late getting going (entirely my fault) so we're going to have to really rush through mailing it to each other to allow for travel time. If you wanted to add something personal to the gift (such as a card or something else hand-made or whatever), please do that immediately so that you can just add it to the gift and send it off the next day. We can rally like nobody's business â€" I know we can. smiley8.gif

      Just sign your user-name (with a brief few-words note if you really want) and if you want to write something longer, feel free to include a card.

      smiley9.gif Also, it seems I've overstayed my welcome. We need a new Chairman, and I understand we've agreed that nominations will take place among the board members, and the actual voting will take place among the public members. I've put up a journal for SC nominations for the board, and we'll be back to you all on who you can vote for.

      smiley9.gif Finally, it seems to be the general consensus that the thread title should revert back to the original, possibly adding to the title as we see fit along the way. I've changed the title back. Your watchlist will still say "Upgrade" unless you un-watch and re-watch. Up to you.

      Thanks everyone! Keep it real.

      ATS Spotlight!
      2qdu0s7.jpg
      This is our first ever member spotlight. This week's spotlight goes to DocRossim for his talented Halo snapshot skills which got us the new image for our new banner! The new banner has not been made yet, eheh... but when it is, we will be using his image. Team player! Thanks for being a dedicated member. smiley1.gif

      ATS Gathering
      A few weeks ago, a lot of us decided we would like to have a gathering of us ATS folk somewhere in the country. If you've been round the thread the last few days, you're familiar with the talk of an ATS bus for a cross-country road trip that ends with RVBTO. Fhajad and I are currently keeping a list of members' zip codes/general area locations to create a map on Google maps for a general idea for what the path would be. Obviously, it is the roughest draft, as we will make changes based on people adding/dropping from the list. If you're interested, please make sure Fhajad or I have your zip code. If we do get this off the ground, it will require an awful lot of monetary help. Don't back out if you don't have the money â€" the more of us there are, the less we each have to pay. If you're going to RVBTO anyways, join us on our trip!

      Gus's Birthday
      Thanks to the aforementioned bus planning, I now have an idea of a route that the Gus birthday package should take. I will ship off the gift to the closest person to me, and that person will send it to the next on the list, etc. I'm going to include a few silver permanent markers for it. Please keep them in the package. Remember, the gift is to just sign your name/username on the shirt, perhaps with a message. You can also add to it, however, and I strongly encourage that you do (though it is absolutely not mandatory). You can throw in a personal card, a small little gift, whatever. Or just sign. Just make sure that when you mail it to the next person, all the parts from everyone are still in it.

      The gift will traverse the US, then Canada, and then you other-continent folk. After that, it will come back to me where I'll keep it in case more people want to join in after we've gotten underway. If you are planning on hanging out at any point with other members (lookin' at you, Liz/Hammy/Zap/John, etc), it'd be helpful for that to coincide with one of you having the shirt so you don't have to mail it as much.

      ATS Upgrade
      Looks like the majority agree to rename the thread. Please see first comment for voting on ideas. I had to split it up into two, so please try to just vote for one.


      Thanks for your continued support, guys! As always, smother me with your ideas and suggestions.

    • Oops

      10 years ago

      SIMMONSboard

      Wow. So summer kinda distracted the hell outta me. Sorry guys.

      So updates. DocRossim is the winner of the first ATS Spotlight, and silentucker is the winner of the Simmons 2.0 hat. Silentucker, you can PM me the mailing address. We'll start the spotlights next week.

      I've got the shirt for Gus's birthday, and I'm going to send that out next week. I figure we'll have deadlines for each person to send to the next person. You have a week before you have to send it off to the next person, in which time you can add on to the gift. You can get him your own card, or you can add a little something -- whatever you want, you've got a week with the gift, and then you've got to ship it to the next person. Who wants to volunteer to be the first one to get it? smiley0.gif

      Also, now that I (Michy) am a moderator of the RvB forum, and now that the broken thread conundrum is moot, I figure, this current thread is our final one forever! So, knowing this, do we want to rename the thread? If so, does anyone have any suggestions? "ATS Finale" or "ATS Final Draft" or "ATS Masterpiece" or something?

      Think that's all for now. Comments, quesitons, suggestions, etc, as always, post them here. Thanks, everyone!

    • Contest Winners!

      11 years ago

      SIMMONSboard

      Shut up. I totally didn't forget. smiley4.gif

      So here are the winners of the contest for image on our new banner:

      FIRST PLACE
      mastersimmons.png
      by DocRossim!

      SECOND PLACE
      by silentucker!

      RUNNER UP
      2554280239_77dfd85d1b_b.jpg
      by JohnBoyle!

      The two prizes I chose for the first two places were first shot at ATS Spotlight, and the Simmons 2.0 hat. DocRossim, you get first pick for which prize you want, and Silentucker will get the other. (Also, Doc, do you have a larger version of this shot?)

      The idea for Gus's next birthday went over really well. Now we need to figure out the order in which we pass this along. Here are the members who have committed in an order that I've guessed might work. The italics are people I hope will participate, but I'll have to ask:

      Kalvaza
      JohnBoyle
      MrSquigles
      megafire
      HurriHam
      hobbitboy
      --------
      silentucker
      MildGrooveOn
      iJay
      Count3D
      ------
      ChurchesWife
      Darkpapo1 (I actually don't know where you live smiley4.gif )
      WaydeUltima
      k1L3rman (depending on where you are)
      noirakita
      Woo_HA27
      islandkitty
      dougss
      Shaoblane



      If your name isn't here and you wanted to participate, please comment. If your name is there and you've changed your mind, please comment. And this list isn't final -- we can add people along the way until February, but we've got to get started now so we don't run out of time! If you've got another idea for order, please let me know. Right now it's... uh, Europe, Canada, and US. Right? (Apologies if you don't actually live where I thought you did.) I'm not actually sure where Megafire is.

      Also, there's been talk of a real-life gathering of ATS (this does NOT mean S.I.M.M.O.N.S. members only, this is for all ATS members). Who would be interested, and where(comment)?

      Thanks as always, everyone! smiley12.gif

    • Cards and Gus's Birthday

      11 years ago

      SIMMONSboard

      Just uploaded the four new cards. smiley1.gif

      (It was especially an issue because apparently the password to the photobucket wasn't what I thought it was and I had to get it reset, and not knowing the email address attached to it was a real problem.)

      Anyways, I had an idea for Gus's birthday next year. Early planning, I know, but this idea is going to take a long while. I figured we could buy Gus an ATS shirt and all sign it. We'll each take a turn with it, sign it, and mail it to the next person. Then that person will sign it, mail it to the next person, etc. The cost to you? Very little -- only the cost of shipping it to the next person (which will be probably no more than two dollars). And possibly replacing the silver permanent marker. But I will try to put a few in there.

      So, thoughts?

      Unfortunately it doesn't looks quite as good at the larger size, but with the original file you may be able to neaten it up if you need to. I had a go before sending but it didn't make much of an improvement. I might try editing it with a layer-mask and send it again tomorrow though.

      Were the applicants told whether or not they made the vote, yet? Thought I'd come back and see what the votes ended up like and realized that I hadn't heard anything of it since.
