And that's it for the front page! But the party continues! Come on back to #Wingnut on Discord to rejoin the fun! The livestream broadcast will also continue well into the night. There's lots of people we'd like to thank for helping make today possible. This has been a HUGE year for fan projects with a ton of absolutely marvelous efforts in full swing. Howard Day, DefianceIndustries, Popsicle Pete, Pedro, L.I.F./Rufus, UnnamedCharacter, Goliath, Dark Sentinel and Denis Loubet are just some of the people who are killing it this year. This makes our job tremendously fun since there's so much to report on. Once again, KrisV has outdone himself in literally keeping the website online from a technical perspective and doing all of the behind-the-scenes maintenance and upgrades that nobody else will touch.
And completely sincerely, I'd like to thank all of YOU for coming. It's the shared excitement and spectacle of the annual CIC birthday that makes it special. The CIC staff could hang out any time, but knowing that we get to do it in such an environment with all of you really puts it over the line for us!
Last, but not least, I'd also like to personally congratulate LOAF and Dundradal for running such an engaging and creative Wing Commander show. I mentioned to LOAF years ago that this would be a dream of mine, but it would probably be too much work to pull off. I imagined it'd just be audio back then and definitely under an hour, and somehow they pull off a three-hour WEEKLY multimedia variety show. The work Trelane and LeHah do behind the scenes is also very important. I'm completely dedicated to daily website updates to show the enduring nature of our fandom and community, but being able to see the excitement about Wing Commander in each week's live broadcast really takes this to the next level!
