Once again the legions of dedicated Wing Commander fans have amazed us. Daily visits to the site increased 25% in 2005 over 2004, and site traffic has more than doubled in the last few years. We are very excited for 2006. There are great things in store for everyone in both the next few days and the coming months. Thanks for joining us!
Our traditional New Years Poll is now up, and everyone has a chance to weigh in. The classical Oldziey tracks of Wing Commander 3 through Prophecy took the lead in our favorite music poll. Team Fat's WC1/2 creations were close behind, however.
The last year has gone by fast, and it's already time to announce the winners of our Seventh Annual Fan Project & Web Site of the Year Awards! Voting was conducted over the last four weeks at our Crius.net Forums. We asked people to consider how active each candidate has been over the last twelve months and think about the potential each has for contributing in 2006. Although only a few have won, each person that worked on or experienced a Wing Commander fan undertaking in 2005 has helped make our community grow and prosper.
Initially there were some concerns about people registering multiple accounts or using their roommates/cousins/grandparents in an attempt to sway the vote. We carefully tracked each suspicious incident, and while there was some attempted fraudulent activity, it did not affect the relative positions of any nominee. So on to the winners!
Honorable Mention: Both HCl's Wing Commander Editing Site and Wedge's Wing Commander tied for a very strong third place showing. Congratulations!
Thanks to everyone who helped ensure a fair and accurate vote this year!
