We’ve all done things in games that we deserve recognition for, but, we, unsung heroes of the cybersphere, received none such. They are sometime tedious, difficult tasks; sometimes they are subtle and easy things that take little effort. But they matter, changing the flow of the cosmos immeasurably.
