*trumpets blare*

We have arrived at another year! This one has meaning too, this is our *5th* anniversary! Who would have thought this lowly little '12 member' site would last 5+ years? Well, our continued existence is directly tied to all of our great members, and especially our yearly Officer-level members. The purpose of this drive is to help offset some of the yearly costs associated with the website. We are 100% corporate advertising free, and expect to remain that way as long as we can continue to do so!

As the level of support has increased, it has allowed us to provide more contests, giveaways, and services to our Officer-level members. We even got a custom figure made last year, thanks to the Officers! We have even bigger goals for 2014-2015, and all of you are essential in helping us to make it happen.

I mean, look at what we accomplished THIS year? We got all of these!

:eddieism: :grumpy: :racist: :lmao: :crying: :hijack: :drum: :fuckit: :pirate: :popcorn: .. and more!

:)racist: is my fav) Imagine what can we accomplish in another year??


We have always felt that accepting money from the big manufacturers or retailers would cheapen or influence some of the reporting and reviews that we do, so we decided we'd go at it alone and do things our way whether people liked it or not. It gives us the freedom to do what we want, and say what we think, and so can you!

This site is completely paid for by the staff, and from donations by our members.

These are the benefits you get for becoming an Officer (Besides the warm fuzzy feeling inside!):

+ The Fighting 1:18th Exclusive 4GB "Dog tag" USB drive*
+ Exclusive Officer Club rank badge
+ Additional Private Message Space from 100 -> 250
+ Additional file hosting space from 30M to 100M
+ Unique color for name
+ Access to the Officer's Club Exclusive Forum
+ Access to the Officer's Club Exclusive PX Trading Post
+ Access to exclusive monthly contests + prizes only for Officers
+ First look at upcoming site exclusives and projects
+ Special Discount offer at starwarsgeek's shop for Officers!^
+ Our undying love and admiration for helping us be the last, best place to BS without BS!

+ And more...

As of right now, all the perks will be year-to-year donation dependent, so they will last until your subscription runs out.

* The 4GB "Dog tag" USB drives drives are a limited item and will be given out on a first-come first-serve basis.
^ See starwarsgeek for details on redeeming your discount.

DAMMIT I was JUST getting ready to email you the details on this year's SWG Officer exclusive. Oh well, I'll post it here and maybe you can add it in to the main post so people will see it.

During the 2013 - 2014 calender year, I ran several "Officer Only" sales at my casting shop, where I offered 1:18 head and weapon items for just $1 each. This is a savings of about 66% since most of my items are $3. Unfortunately, I got a lot of feedback from people who would say "If only I had some cash" and "Maybe next time I'll have some spare funds available". I know what that's like, trust me! So, for the 2014 - 2015 calender year, I'm going to officer each officer one "Make Your Own Sale" opportunity. What does that mean, exactly? Basically, YOU can choose when to make a purchase at my sale prices. You win some money playing poker with your buddies on a random Friday night in August and you want to buy some SWG swag? You got it! No more waiting on my silly made up holiday sales like "May the Fourth Be With You" - YOU decide when you want to have the sale!

Each officer will get ONE opportunity to get 1:18 head and weapon casts for only $1 each, and 50% off anything else in my store (1:12 head casts if you're so inclined, painting services, etc. etc.). Of course, I'll keep offering my silly holiday sales throughout the year and if you can take advantage of me during those as well, great. If not, at least you'll still get a chance to take advantage of me at one point.

Okay, now thats a cool concept!...my problem is never funds though..my problem is, I already have waaaaaaaaaaay too much fodder...that's probably because I'm to lazy to customize and use what I have :headinsand:

Thanks everyone! I need to go and adjust the ranks again.. Stupid system always resets the ranks :)
I wondered about that. I thought I had 2 and should move up to 3. So wish I had not hesitated the 1st time I had an oppportunity...I would be a 4-star today! :eek:

Provost.. We should have enough drives to cover everyone, but just need to qualify that they are limited.

Thanks!

If I did miss out would still pay as I like collecting those stars ;)



Speaking of which - did I not have two of them given I've paid for officer membership two years in a row?

Boom, Shakalaka!!!

(Paid)

Now wherez mah stahz yo????

:fuckit:
Boom! Look at that pretty award rack!

Thanks everyone so far! We're off to a great start!

Yeah, I adjusted everyone's 'end date' to be 07/01 and I think it messed with the stars. I THINK I fixed everyones now.

But when you do re-up through the website it knocks you down to 1 star until I go in and fix it.. the joys of automation!
