Thanks for @Fridge and @Troll for their continuing efforts to keep here a pleasant place to be, and for not really wanting to be moderators (which is the best qualification you can possibly have).

Thanks to @BeachAV8R for continuing to pay for all this (plus those that have donated as well) and for hosting us in his metaphorical front room.


Exactly… Who wants to moderate…?
I want to ban people. :wink:

So… I’m on the Devotee list.
Who needs facebook? :smile:

Cool stats. Glad to be part of this. Both as member and unwilling moderator/not exactly Pulitzer price winning author.

You’re a great gang to be associated with.
Interacting with people on Mudspike really enhances my flightsim hobby!

Here’s to an even better 2018!


I’ll claim healthy chunk of those forum views…


My chunk is unhealthy.


Real Life is overrated hahahaha



Hmmm i am sure that 111 should have been mentioned with maybe an F for fantastic in front of them.
