Hi everyone! Most of us will never earn a spot on the front page of The Racing Farmer, but that doesn't mean we aren't totally awesome in our own minds ;-) This is a place to have some fun and give recognition to anyone you think has added something to the farming experience. You can nominate whoever you want for whatever reason you want. Just please keep it respectful.


I nominate jaystarr2 for infecting most of the forum with that darn Pina Colada song :P Also maxiroy for their hilarious responses, love the signature pic :-)

    On our co-op we have been doing a player of the week and a deputy of the month for some time know. So I would like to say who our player of the week is and our Deputy of the month.

    POW- TieDie71
    DOM- Shellyshell72

    They have been great assets to our co-op.

    Great idea for a thread, freerange! The problem is, I have so many farmers that I admire in this game that I just can't pick one. So I'm going to give you a list of those who I feel deserve recognition for what they do every day here in the Forum. Please forgive me for any gender errors. And the winners are:


    Larino- The undisputed Guru of all things cooperative, Larino gives everyone who asks her time in order to answer their questions. And hers is THE definitive answer. A superb multi-tasker, Larino could play the game while juggling 3 chainsaws and riding a unicycle.

    Samty- Easily the most helpful player in the Forum, Samty uses exceptional computer skills to guide others in the right direction. And Samty NEVER gets involved in arguments. I for one think Samty would make a great Mod.

    Bweatherholt- An experienced and gracious lady, Bweatherholt is not afraid to express her opinion. And man, don't get her mad! She reminds you of your favorite aunt, dear.

    Dragonpride- This guy don't play! Dragonpride pulls no punches when it comes to the company's gold hunger. Glad that he's on OUR side!

    freerange- Anyone who has read freerange's homespun stories in "The Daily Spud" knows that creativity comes natural to this farmer. This thread is proof of that.

    jaystarr- Yeah, that darn song is stuck in my head, too! jaystarr makes things fun for us all, and that's a good thing. And because of a change in the Forum by an update, will forever be searching for her elephant.

    SuperSpaceGirl-The name pretty much says it all. Her superpowers include the ability to make everyone smile.

    rie22- The most outspoken of the ultra high level farmers, rie22 has a great sense of humor, which is infectious. She really quacks me up!

    Absolutely right, jello! Too many to list. But I just wanted to give a few of my favorites a good old-fashioned thumbs up! :thumbsup:

    So if anyone reading this thread has someone that they would like to give recognition to, please feel free to do so. And to make it interesting, add a few words as to why you feel that player is worthy of recognition. The point here is to demonstrate that there are a great many players who are far more deserving of Player of the Week than those chosen by GGS's mission ranking criteria.

    Well, I wouldn't say more deserving, just different. I don't want to take away from the accomplishments of those who have earned conventional rankings. But I do think there are lots of great players that are missed by game metrics. This is for the more personal touch :-)


    I'd like to suggest Sue-ana for starting "The Daily Spud News" and her many funny stories. Most recently teaching us how to bring electricity to our island huts and some important safety tips about alligators! Plus she makes me laugh so hard in co-op chat. You wouldn't believe the crazy stuff that doesn't make it into the news LOL!

    Oooh! I'd like to thank the Academy, my co-op for putting up with my shenanigans, everyone on the forum and I guess GGS for giving us this game, I suppose. Oh! And my mum. You should always thank your mum. :)

    Edit: thanks for pointing out this thread to me Freerange! It was awesome :D

    LOL farmerjohn 22 is definitely an Alternative Farmer of the Week! My sides hurt from laughing! His 100% accurate weather reports and clever stories for "The Daily Spud" are always a hit. His recent Island coverage has me doubled up over my keyboard. Thanks farmerjohn :-)
