    I was allowing until Tuesday, as Quirinus received the award late. Then I offered some grace...

    But Quirinus has not logged in for 3 days. And I've e-mailed him, as well, with no response.

    I'm suspecting the worst! -- A vacation!

    If you are around, Coz, and have someone in mind, I might defer to you to choose the next one. I have chosen a few recently. Brasidas, you would be welcome to choose another instead! Whoever comes first!

    But if not, I will still think on it today. And if we don't hear from you I will try to post one. Though I know I've been catch-as-catch-can through the various fora lately, as I try feverishly to finish my own story!

    By the end of the day, we shall be crowned by a new Fan! And hopefully will not come away too bruised from the experience.

    You know, I just had a brainstorm.... And I know exactly who deserves to be Fan of the Week right now...

    Now, I would say Coz1, as a means of congratulations for his just becoming a "Demi-Mod" -- basically getting the official title for a job he's been doing much of for many years... But Coz has received this award more than once, and more recently...

    But there is another person whom this brings up...

    Mettermrck is a person whom I hope is familiar to us all! I think he's certainly made the rounds, and commented in many an AAR. I've certainly seen him in the AARs I follow. Plus he's a writer of magnificent works!

    But Mettermrck is also such a good guy!!! Mettermrck has always been very friendly and gracious -- he has been a good member, hasn't let his writing abilities go to his head -- he's a great guy to have around!

    And that's partly why Mettermrck was also made a "Demi-Mod" not too very long ago!

    And as Demi-Mod, Mett helps us ALL out! He's zipping here and there, to and forth and fro, making changes and updates to help us in our quest for great reading and writing... Don't think it's not a lot of work! He has to put his own desires for reading aside so he can do all these things, too!

    Anyway... Mettermrck has not received the Fan of the Week Award since 2004. And that is certainly an oversight for a personality who contributes so much to these Fora!

    So... Congratulations, Mettermrck! Step on up and tell us about yourself and your Fanship!!!

    (oh, and would you mind changing the title to reflect your new honor??) ((snickers))

    My apologies to all for my absence

    As Renslaer so accurately guessed, I am in fact on vacation. I thought I had received the award early, and had until this Sunday to pass on the award, but as I read it appears I received the award late, and needed a new nominee several days ago.

    However Mettermrck is an excellent choice, and I want to also add my congratulations to the long list...

    so congratultions

    Hmm... Actually, I think you may be right! We try to make it a week, tending toward Sunday, but since the schedule sometimes gets messed up I try to arrive at a compromise between the two.

    I do apologize! As perhaps you had someone in mind and meant to pass it on in good order. Sorry about that.

    When this award comes open again with someone missing their chance (as happens about every third time, I'm finding, I shall seek you out and allow you to make your choice then!

    Wow, well I am real humbled by this award. I've often told those forum-mates I chat with that I feel like I never comment enough in AARs. There's so many great works out there in the ever expanding AAR community, that to even follow your personal favorites is a challenge, let alone seek out new gems. Fans are just as important as authors in AARland, and I'm pleased to be recognized in both capacities. To be a demi-Moderator is to be a fan. So thanks to all the authors whose works I've admired over the past years. I look forward to what comes ahead. With EU3 and Victoria: Revolutions coming, the AAR community will only be invigorated!
