I think Toltec has been around almost as long as Cyrus, under another name though.  He and I don't always agree and we have fussed at each other some over the years.  However he's always been a good contributor and basically a good guy.  Toltec was the person responsible for the origination of AE Magazine, way back.  And even though he's delusional about pre columbian contact, Conratulations are in order.

This is a first for me and AE.  I got this email the other day from Lirelou -
 
The following report has been submitted by lirelou, on History Forum ~ All Empires who has the following issue with this post : -



An excellent post. The poster should be congratulated. Pity that 'reporting' a post seems to be conditioned for negative responses. I am impressed with the quality of this one. Isn't there some way we can say: Well done.

There is, and we are doing it now.

10-17th June was a good week on the forum for some classic updates to existing threads and creation of new. With that in mind it was a tough call.  So tough it is a tie. Consequently, We honor not one, but two new members for their exemplary efforts this week. Ragged AssSecond for his photos and analysis on the American Civil War and uniforms in particular. And Sharwina_7 for bringing life back into the sub dealing with SE Asia.
 
Well done to both.
