You could list them alphabetically and I would be closer to the top.

It is not a ranking.

I put myself in the top left, because I made it. Then I decided the Kalmbach staff should be on the top left, so I moved myself over.

Then the order has nothing to do with anything really, other than I purposefully put Howard Zane right next to me. How many times would I ever get a chance to do that?

Notwithstanding the Weeble People, it’s a labour of love, well done, Kevin.
And while I’m not volunteering it would be interesting to see, apart from those known to be on the RIP Track, how many of those have been active in the past year.
Cheers, the Bear.Smile

Having been on the Forum since 2003, I sure would like to have been included with my now "deleted" avatar.  It was a pic of the "Anna House" I built to replicate my Grandmother's house in Anna, Illinois.  This was located next to the IC tracks, and I spent many hours on the porch swing watching the trains go by.

I've tried a few times to re-establish my avatar, but all I can have is the generic yellow/green thing.

 

ENJOY  !

Email me the picture to use as your avatar, and I will restore you to the ranks for the next edition.

Or, just post the picture on here, and I will screen-shot it and use it that way.

Kevin, are you unable to edit your current edition instead of putting someone off till next year? It just seems to me that a lot of guys categorized as "weeble people" are probably offended at the slight. If they can provide their missing avatar, why not just edit the "yearbook" now? With so many missing avatars, the whole project seems to come up short.

All these years I thought it was a Mobil gas station!

If anyone else wants to be de-weebled in the yearbook for 2023, just post a picture or email it to me.

  Like Eeorr from Winnie the Pooh said "Thanks for thinking of me".

  I'm gonna start another profile with an avatar of Waldo. Next year you can say Where's Waldo? On your collage.

    Thanks Kevin.

Kevin, you really make this forum a fun place to hang out.  I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this.

I can't imagine how much work this was, not only putting it together, but all the time combing through forum threads looking for avatars.  Well done!

Thanks for doing this, Kevin.  It's fun, and it makes us all feel like we belong somehow.  Some of the comments are a bit on the caustic side for my taste, but I do understand why many would urge you to place them ASAP once they let you know they've been missed.

I really appreciate your efforts here.  I found myself quickly. Big Smile Yes
