    Been awol for a few days so just catching up. Firstly - congrats to Mark - "Well done the Baron" Mines a pint or three

    Secondly, I didn't even realize we had to have a banner now - that's nice Thanks to Mike for the work he's doing - is there anything you from me for it?. Anyway, cheers Mark. The blue dot appears in Devon ok BUT
    Devon is showing up in Wales on Google Earth. Is that correct?
    You're treading on dodgy ground there my friend - a bit like saying Canada is part of that other place to the south Mike

    Mike,
    You were already a Flight Leader, but now a Flight Leader. Not sure 'Congrats' are in order. Might be more work? Did you move?

    Geography and Politics are not my forté, even in Canada. Although, it is interesting to see there are sensitivities about neighbours and locations in the U.K. (not so united?) My problem is that I actually thought that the South Penisula was Wales, not the West protrusion above the Bristol Channel. My bad!

    That might have been the confusion that resulted in visiting Bath many years ago, and seeing the 'Owen Owen" department store, and thinking I was near Wales (like very near, a couple of miles. Not like a Canadian near, a couple hundred miles Example: Comox to Victoria = Doncaster to London? Would someone in Britain consider that a day trip?). Still my bad.

    As far as I know, but don't quote me, no-one on the Forum has to have a banner. I think that if you are in a position on the Forum, there should be a way of acknowledging that. So, I do up banners for those that are promoting the game in more than occassional open games. I suspect that you have put in some dues to be recognized by the other members of the Forum, and a banner is a small token of recognition on my part of all your efforts.

    Please don't feel pressured into having to subscribe, if you are not inclined. I get a bit of ribbing from others that I'm in cahoots with Oberst Hajj to increase the subscription rates, but it isn't true! Honest. I haven't gotten any kick-backs from him. Not even a reduced subscription rate.

    Anyway, I am more than willing to adjust the banner in any way you'd like, that would reflect credit on your position, the U.K. Wing, and the Forum. Especially if I've made a faux pas. Please advise.

    Thank you for your effort in sharing the passion that is Wings of Glory!

    PS: Darn. It was Simon [Maverick] that moved, not Mike [mikeemagnus]. Getting old and easily confused. And not just about geography.

    Hey Mike,
    Good to hear from you. I think what you are doing is really fantastic. Not just the banners, but all the pilot / plane cards I've seen you post from time to time too. Great work indeed. And of course I'd like to subscribe, although I have no idea what the process is. I'd love a banner and I'm quite happy to up my subs if that is what is needed, although, if I remember correctly, I am a "Gold" member already, or something akin to that, whatever its called. So grateful you fill me in on what I need to do next, then, yes, please go ahead and do the banner. Whatever you think is fitting I'm sure you know a lot more about it than I do!

    As for being geographically challenged - I know the feeling. My comment was really only tongue in cheek - or just plain cheeky. I have a bit of a raw sence of humour I'm afraid. To be truthful, I have no more knowledge of Canada than you do of the UK, although I suspect you know more than I do! I've only been to your fair country once. A couple of years back. I have a son living and working in Vancouver BC. He's just been granted his permanent residency so I doubt we'll see him back here again too soon (sensible lad). So, hopefully, my geographical knowledge of Canada will grow over the next few years as we visit him from time to time (If the mountain won't come to Muhammed and all that .......). As to the sensitivity between neighbours over here. Just go into a pub in Glasgow, next time you just happen to be passing, and suggest they are located in England. Then run like hell No, sadly we are not a very "United Kingdom", even less so now than a couple of years back. But hopefully we shall pull through this present chaos and settle down soon to be good friends and neighbours once again.
    Anyway, I'm blathering. Thanks again for getting in touch. Look forward to hearing from you again re the banner.
    Cheers for now,
    Mike

    It is with great honour, and some surprise, that I accept this promotion. I sincerely hope I can manage the post with confidence and humility!
    That being said, the Drinks are on me chaps! Last one to the bar has to look after the Aspidistra when the Wingco is away.
    So what's your pleasure?

    Well I have it on my profile that I am a Gold UK subscriber - does that count?

    Mike,
    You are so very welcome. Thanks for all you do to share the experience of Wings of Glory.

    Co-incidentally, and nothing you had anything to do with, but thanks for my cat, Yukiko, a Devon Rex:
