In closing, we go back to the sentiment that we started with up top. As our new poll will show, many members of our community have been active for nearly twenty years! When the CIC staff first started getting involved with the online world of Wing Commander in 1995, we never could have imagined this is what we'd be doing in 2015. I can't even predict what things will look like in 2020, let alone another two decades forward into the 2030s.
It's all of the amazing things that Wingnuts continue to do that make this event and all our continued success possible here at the CIC. Work that fans like the Maslas Brothers, Klavs, DefianceIndustries, LIF, capi, Ninja, HCl, Scooby and Luke do are very helpful to our daily operations here by keeping a constant stream of new material flowing. We'd also like to thank Origin vets George Oldziey and Denis Loubet for spending so much time this year focusing on WC fans. I'd also like to personally thank my fellow CIC Staff members who do critical things behind the scenes to both keep the site running and make days like today possible. And if you made it this far and are still reading this post, then know that you too are one of the diehards that forms the backbone of the WC community. It takes a village - keep up the good work. We have many exciting days ahead!
