Staff Appreciation Week - A series of awesome events!

Howdy folks!!
I was thinking it seems to me that we always ask for new features, etc. Now there is nothing wrong with that, but I think we should give some THANKS. I have prepared a series of events throughout next week, a day per staff member. During that day the controllers will man the battle stations in the specific region for the day. This is your time to show the staff how much we appreciate them!

All events on advanced unless otherwise stated.

Let’s show these guys some love.

Cheers,
Thomas Galvin

He is not “technically” a staff member.

Still deserves as much appreciation for the hard work he has done for the game and community.

I was about to ask, what about Cameron? Make an exception and make this an 8 day week.

I’ll miss most of them as I have school all week. 😑 I might be able to catch the Saturday event though. 🙂

Sorry @carmalonso… I know that feel bro.

If we did everybody that “paid with their time” this could go on for years. Isn’t quite practical ;)

I have upmost respect for Cameron and everybody who contributes in some way, shape, or form to Infinite Flight. That being said I just don’t think it’s practical to honor each and every person. If you would like there are some threads about honoring and appreciating people, feel free to go search it up here on the forums and add people who you think deserve it.
