I would like to mention that, in my opinion, this has been the issue that has required the most work from us at the Core Staff. It was am exhausting task, but it was very well worth it; we are all extremely proud of the final result and are confident you will enjoy it.

I also want to especially commend SMB's work. He directed and organized us in such a great manner and worked his ass off to make sure this issue came out perfectly. Great job, SMB.

Thank you, I'm honored that you feel that way. :)

I'd also like to thank everybody again (because there are not enough words that can be said that can truly express my gratitude)- the regular and guest writers, the other staff members, Master Crash for the banners, Edofenrir for the EotY Awards icons, 22 for help with some of the coding and whatnot, Tucky and Dippy for attending the meetings as much as they did and often at inconvenient times, and so many others- this ended up working out very well and I'm happy to see that we were able to do this. :D

I liked your model frames, LTQ. Very creative and original. I'll have to check them out in 3D!

I really like the scavenger hunt idea.

I'm just *bleep*ing horrible at it and can't find any of them ;_;
Yay I thought it was just me.

There was a mild mistake with the Toad award. Namely SMB forgot to put Lindsay on it. She has now been added, and so it is now known.

Just now did I finish reading the issue. I really liked most sections, this was a great issue, but I especially liked Walkazo's Genetic Analysis of the Koopas, Stooben's Interview, Dippy's Old Vs New Music and YoshiKong's Projects Seeking Contributors. I also liked how MCD and GF's Fake News sections followed the same story.

Thanks! I'm going to try for a slightly different design next month (well, this month technically).
