    Thank you for being so candid in you appraisal of the situation Jonas.
    I am happy for you to support a Minor Con Medal for Sweden, but I would not consider it justified a Major Con Medal with so few Anchorage participants at your show.
    You may wish to challenge this decision, and I would be more than happy to be overruled in this respect by Keith if you put your case to him directly.
    If you are happy with my resolution, please get in touch with Susan (Ling) direct, and ask if she will put your medal onto the server for you.
    Rob.

    Well... I don't want to have anything not earned.

    I don't know what the difference is between minor and major con medal-wise. I would have guessed that a named medal would be a major con, as "Doncaster". I never expected there to be a medal for each LinCon and GothCon. So I guess I expected it to be a "minor con in Sweden" medal...

    To be honest I'm not that sure what I expected, but thought it might be fun to design a medal based on the Swedish Order of the Sword, with the swords removed.

    Perhaps that there could be those bronze, silver and gold stars on them for multiple events as I've held five events (four bigger battles and several drop in games with a couple of frigates) with probably about 50-60 players in all. I'm not sure how that works, Or if the medals were needed in bronze, silver and gold...

    A Minor Con for Sweeden seems in order Jonas. Please feel free to go ahead with it. The actual medal design looks superb bye the way.

    Default Medal award.

    Despite the incorrect ribbon, as I finally have the Doncaster participant two year medal up and running thanks to a lot of help from Ling and The Royal Hajj, am am pleased to begin the issue the first of these much coveted medals to Neil, Union Jack for his part in the successful and spirited action off Cape Trafalgar.

    I have looked at the medals Jonas. As there are three there, my next question is which you want for the Participant one and which for the GM?

    I would guess a possible way of using three levels could be bronze as participation, silver as help out and gold as being the organizer.

    The one who has helped me out doesn't own Sails and isn't active on the forum so bronze and gold would probably be best.

    Sorry can't do that for Minor cons Jonas. Keith set the parameters as just Participant and GM level.

    And finally the same two year participation medal for Andy, captain Kiwi, for his portrayal of Lord Nelson in the Battle of Trafalgar. You can't miss him. he is the chap with only one arm and an eye missing.

    Congratulations Andy, but you didn't need to go to quite such lengths.

    This month is going to be very expensive in the Wardroom. for Captain Duff.
    He has just snagged another gong, having passed the 1500 posts and three years of service point.

    It gives me the greatest pleasure to announce that Jonas, TexaS, is only the second captain in the Fleet to achieve the sole distinction of being awarded the Anchorage campaign Gold Medal for completing five AARs in all four years of our games.

    Nice!



    Well done. AARs are always intersting, but Jonas really tries to compete with your AARs, Rob.

    This medal honors his ambitions.
