On the off chance that anyone will read the news posts of this nobody I have the following announcement:
Today I became a Police Lieutenant. It's not a major accomplishment compared to what others have done, but still, I feel proud of my efforts at the Flash Portal these past few days. I'm considering joining the Newgrounds Police Department before I rank into Elite. The only qualification I don't yet meet is the minimum number of BBS posts. I know it's shocking that my first post was only around 14 hours ago even though I've been here since mid 2006. So in the times to come I'll be trying to find my place on the forums.
Every time I've entered one of my periods of intense NG involvement, I've done it for myself alone. Hopefully I'll be accepted with open arms when I reach out to the NG community.
