Topic: Updated History 2013-

This is more for the veteran members of Phoenix, but if anyone knows of entries to be added to the History of Phoenix timeline (the current page on the wiki stops at 2013 with the below entry), please post them here and I'll get them updated:

2013

The year opened in great style for Phoenix, when it took five awards at the Simulation Cup; this was topped by Kvant taking Best Firefly Sim and The West Star taking Best Star Wars Sim. A number of highly active new members joined the site from hearing about Phoenix on other sites and via word of mouth, most notably Osprey, ksabers and RavenSkycatcher.

Silent Hunter stood for re-election and was opposed by Jason Andersen; the vote ended with the incumbent winning by the tiny margin of 13 votes to 12. A four-way contest for Technical Coordinator ended in Euan Reid retaining his position. Silent then proceeded to form his second (and final) administration, deliberately giving some posts to new members who had impressed him.

I am considering breaking out the awards from the actual site history, but for now the length of the entire page doesn't warrant it.

Re: Updated History 2013-

If I remember rightly, 2013 was the year TDC introduced a multi-jet engine setup to the traditionally single-prop SSR contest. Or, in laymans terms, did ridiculously well.

Not 2013, but before that, on the first of October 2012 to be exact, the first issue of the newsletter was released.
