  1. Check out our Galactic Academy cadets, and Andrew Villanueva TD 66427, this weekend.
  2. IMO - he doesn't look like any of these dudes. But I dunno. There are many uncredited actors. That people are still searching for.
  3. I had also thought that - but there are other people who are not command staff that have posted in some threads like the pinned "501st legion rules thread" and created threads like the "about photobucket " thread. So ?? Also there was maybe one or two threads I had posted in, like maybe last year or the year before. Or like the newsletter threads - maybe put them in a different forum, so people can be congratulated on their achievements?
  4. Nope. Where it should have the "quick reply" field, above the "Go To Topic Listing" with the left directional chevron, it is not there. The only option available to me is "report post" and "share" edit - I'm going through all the individual subforums to see if it is not just in announcements. edit - looks like that is the only one affected.
  5. I'm not allowed to post replies in any thread in the announcements section. It has been like that a while now. Don't know who else it affects, but in some threads that were asking for input, there are very few replies, perhaps for same reason?
  6. Put them in a big Ziploc bag. Really. I haven't done anything with them yet. I have been considering what my mom used to do with patches earned in Brownies/Girl Scouts. This was in the days when you were not allowed to have them on your vest. Even if we were, that's not how I roll. I hated that stupid vest. But she made me a bucket hat. And the patches that were not for the sash, went on the hat. I still have my hat. Coincidentally, the hat is orange, brown and white. And I think the bucket hat would be a nod to the famous bucket hat guy.
  7. It was the rules regarding "how many" that also kept me from producing them. Because it would be a give away and not for sale or trade. But it does have the MEPD logo so I was unsure of the rules regarding that. And again the costs. I'd like to see another run of your stickers. I have only given mine away to some law enforcement friends, and I included one in that patch trade with our sheriff's department. Like you said at the cost of the stickers, too pricey for give aways. The stickers given away by law enforcement are the kind that are just glossy paper. Nothing like the vinyl fancy stuff. I know that one of our garrison uses a sticker company to make rolls of stickers for our garrison to give out at troops. I believe it is around $60. Don't know what the set up fee was though.
  8. I also have been working on this idea. I also thought of having a run of little plastic junior badges (after receiving my very own junior sheriff deputy badge from my fave deputy) These would be for more exclusive events like hospital troops. I thought these would be better than a trading card to hand out. But stickers would probably go faster than trading cards. The badge design I had considered was just the shield. I went off what the local sheriffs dept and the state police give out. And it is their shield, but in foil and black. I found the reason they did this, was cost. It costs less for the simplified gold foil and black. The average cost I found usually runs about 1000 stickers on a roll for about $150. It has just been the time, set up, cost and getting this cleared that has kept me from doing this. This is what our sheirffs dept junior deputy plastic badge looks like. Just simple black and gold.
  9. On the bottom I would make a swinging door similar to how the containers used for pneumatic tube systems are. I would put my items in a "view-tainer" and stick them up in the tube, swing/slide the bottom shut. I have seen TKs do it with their thermal detonator piece. But that is something that people have messed with. At least on the pack, the least obvious place someone would put something is in the radio box or the mortar. And it wouldn't have to be a View-tainer, the dollar store has little kids size water bottles that are skinny.
  10. I actually use my hip pouch. And had planned to use either the tool box or the mortar tube for storage. I would prefer the mortar tube, as people can be pickpockets or curious to see if the tool box or other parts open.
  11. I was hoping @iconoclasta_88 would chime in. Someone with the history background on it. Thank you.
  12. funny. I just have one that I made and it is a copy of the Troop Loops fake cereal box. Its been going strong since 2009 ish.
  13. Looks kind of dangerous to tread over there. I posted my two cents. (which the internet promptly ate and logged me out - no worry Ill repost) And I was not aware of the "wanting the HWT back" - where are these threads? edit - I'll post a link to this over in the private Facebook group - cause I know people don't hang out here as much as they do on Facebook.
  14. Would it be possible to find those with more current approvals? By your reasoning - those people based their packs off of screengrabs. And if they were approved for SWAT, then that must mean that their packs are screen accurate no? The reason for clear images of the pack is so there is minor guesswork. Looking at screen grabs, two different people can look at the same thing and say different opinions. Most of us know that every pack is probably on a karrimore frame. They require seed trays. They require a toilet syphon. But then when you start to break down to the different packs, not many people (especially myself) know that the filter from whatever goes on pack whatever. Like a parts list ? I just kind of wanted a pack thread - but similar to the layout of PandaTrooper's breakdown thread. So someone could see that there was more than pack three to build. And know the differences between them.
  15. And to me the top half where the leather tab is attached to the lid, looks more like a metal cap rivet than a circular stitch.
