Alllllll righty, then.

First: Thank you to ALL who replied to the query! The response was
TREMENDOUS! But it led to a problem... there's no way this is going to
work-- withinreason.

New idea: Everyone who sent me mail will get added to a ShadowTK group
called UO Adivsory Staff. From there use characters to responto the
posts from UO. I will put up TWO new vehicles for comments every day.
After EXACTLY two days from my first post, the time for comments will be
over. I will then sift all the comments and delete
inappropriate comments, STUPID comments, or comments that had to be
edited out for the sake of the catalog. I will attempt to put pictures
in this sucker, so not all of the page is blank space. I reserve the
right to edit out and make final decisions on comments, design specs,
descriptions of vehicles, and vital statistics. Don't think you are
limited to dry discourse. All four of the main personalities have a
distinct personality, so color is also welcome.

Examples of stuff:

M1A1 MBT (u.S)

A cool tank that shot stuff (etc..etc..)

M1A1 50/120 4/4 1 2 800,000 nuyen
Seats: 5
Fuel: Plutonium reactor
Milage: 4 LY with a pellet

Challenger as the best made tank in the world.]<<<<<

[Good comment with good color. Probably a keeper.]

>>>>>[The M1? Best tank? No way. The German Brachtwurst Panzer was a
much better tank for its day since it had anti-missile ECM. Let's face
it, the M1 was designed to take head-on cannon shells, not FBW infantry
fired missiles in the side.]<<<<<

[Again, a good comment, and a good reaction. Not everyone agrees with a
comment, and some people downright LIE.]

So have fun. I'll start sending the design specs to the list on Monday,
Feb 20. You have until then to send me mail saying you want to be on the
commentator list. If you're not added by then, you CAN be added late,
but you may miss out on some classic vehicles.

Mike, TGC

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
