    aafritz17 has been appointed to the HOF Staff (you'll notice his shiny new badge). Denniz has retired from active duty and aafritz17 will keep the Civ V HOF chugging along.

    Hope you'll all join me in welcoming him aboard.

    You're the man, aafrtiz17! Thank you for keeping this alive! I've played Civ since it first came out and still have Civ I in its original box. I've never reached anything resembling expert, but I've logged countless hours on every Civ game, including over 6000 hours on Civ V. So far VI has eluded me though. There's just something missing and it hasn't grabbed me the way V did. But thank you for taking over and keeping an old grognard like me going!

    Thanks for the welcomes! I, too, am quite motivated to keep this community going. Civ V is the only game to which I've been "hooked" since the Panzer Leader board game (played in the 70's, with my father). Just went and checked - I still have that box, too, but it is pretty beat up!

    FYI, there's a bit of a backlog of submissions (as you may know from your own). My goal is to get that caught up in the next couple of days, then we can get new gauntlets posted.

    Welcome onboard!

    Really glad to having you help out with vetting and gauntlets etc.

    Just so people are aware I will be taking over the responsibility for publishing the updates monthly, not quite sure what the schedule will be yet, I've done this for Civ 4 for a couple of years now though so I am very familiar with it.

    @aafritz17 Glad to see you on board. I've come back to playing Civ V after a long hiatus and I'm happy to see the HOF continuing.

    Hey, guys, hang steady. @Denniz wore a lot of hats, so people are learning new skills, or re-learning skills they haven't used in years. All this on 3 continents, both hemispheres, and across 15 time zones. Guess that makes it a genuine Civ Experience...

    Thanks, @zenmaster. I'm helping with the vetteing, it's pretty caught up since last update (August?). Others are assembling the update post itself (including new gauntlets), guess they're still working it out. I just keep lurking here, figuring any day!
