I'm surprised to see that you got me on the first try, since I rarely come over here and am far more active on the 1:1 forums.  

Great job, this must have taken a lot of time and effort!

Recognizability was a big part of it... and your awesome herald that you use for an avatar cemented it. You were 100% in the first time I saw it.

Thank you for the kind words. The effort was actually a lot of fun.

Earl on with the project I had sections I listed people under, but decided against it. No need for high-school style popularity contests on the forums. 

For example, the Kalmbach staff was listed under Faculty, and Dr. Wayne, Ed, & Garry were Most Popular, and a few other goofy things.

In the end, I decided a simple list was best, but the weebles still all ended up at the bottom.

Thank you for pointing that out. While correcting it I also noticed I had MRRDAD listed twice, and right next to himself! How did that happen?

Early on with the project I had sections I listed people under, but decided against it. No need for high-school style popularity contests on the forums. 

For example, the Kalmbach staff was listed under Faculty, and Dr. Wayne, Ed, & Garry were Most Popular, and a few other goofy things.

Uh-oh . . . I shudder to think what category I would have fallen into.

Do you have 'Most Bombastic'?

How about 'Highest Average Number of Just About Completely Unnecessary Words Per Post'?

You would never even be considered for that one. There are some masters of that art among us.

I didn't realize how many faces, names, or avitars you become familiar with until you see them all in one place like this.

I was not aware either. I thought there were only about 20-25 active members until I started putting it all together. It turns out there were hundreds of names I recognized.

I am glad we are a large and active group.

I dunno, Robert, but I've been criticised/nominated for that one by a couple of Forum regulars. 
I've found that the more verbose I become, the less likely they are to read whatever I happen to be rambling on about, and that lessens the complaints.  A surfeit of photos has a similar effect on some Members, too. Smile, Wink & Grin

Kevin, I admire your tenacity in assembling those avatars - very well-presented. Bow

Hey Doc-

That's a good technique to limit complaints. Using the word 'verbose' is fairly common, but getting 'surfeit' in there is mildly impressive. Ever use 'onomatopoetically' on this forum? I have.  Whistling

Didn't use it here, but once used the word "perspicasity" in an attempt to get an employee a bonus.

That's an interesting project. How long did it take to put it all together?

Wow, that looks like it was a lot of work. Thanks for compiling this Kevin! (and thanks for making sure I was on there, even though I haven't been very active lately.)
