  1. Settle down symmetrical Vader. -Eric
  2. Or be sent to Mustafar to be melted down into a much better looking amorphous lump of white plastic. -Eric
  3. No no. Sorry man. There is an LMO person assigned to every detachment. So I liaise as LMO (per the operating protocol) with the DL or someone the DL appoints to deal with CRLs. There are 6 of us and we all have taken a couple of the 15 dets to help out. I just happen to also be working on Phasma and Shocktrooper but Tim gets the final approval on those CRLs and I'll ask another LMO to get eyes on it as well. I'm changing my name to UbiquitousTrooper. Thanks Eric. Sssssssssssh! We're not trying to be too too obvious. Stalker! As LMO I am helping SLD, MEPD, and FISD with their CRLs. The main forums I visit anyways. -Eric
  4. I'm open to Phasma moving there. At the time we started writing things FISD made more sense. I still think FISD is a better resource for building it and do feel like it still makes sense for her to live here. I'll poke my head in over a spec ops and ask how they feel about it. Either way I'm moving forward with the CRL development along the way we can all decide together which DL gets final approval. -Eric
  5. Yes and I'm using your bucket as a drum. Anyone got an Ewok leg bone I can use as a drumstick? I read this as "Yeah pfffft good luck with that!" Thanks all. My PM and email door has been and remains open even in this new role. -Eric
  6. A sneak preview of the images Ingrid sent me to get this CRL going... So here's my plan... Get the wording tighened up and post here for more discussion this week. Find someone to photoshop the images Get the DL's approval CRL goes live -Eric
  7. Aloha Shiny Whites, I apologize for the delay in posting this. Between election madness and then some work related travel I am finally getting a chance to sit down to use a keyboard that does not involve thumbs. Please allow myself to introduce myself with a form letter going out on all the detachments forums. I am Eric Brager your Legion Membership Officer (LMO) for 2016. If you recognize the name Darth Aloha it is likely due to my involvement with FISD as a two time Detachment Leader (DL). (this is part of a form letter I'm posting on all 15 detachments. Most of you all know who I am) The LMO office this year is here to help. We will support the FISD goals for updating and creating new CRLs. Through your DL we will be an advocate, advisor, and champion. Most of all we will be accessible and approachable. No longer are the LMOs aloof and unreachable. Last year saw the small but important changes to the Operating Protocols regarding CRLs. Section 7 states a few things that define a new working relationship between the detachments and the LMO. First is that a new costume may not be added to the Legion without completed CRL. Second is that the detachments are responsible for the creation and maintenance of the CRLs not the LMO. We do not make your CRLs. The result of these changes is that base level CRL requirements should not change unless the LMO and the DL are in agreement. Thirdly and lastly the DL should solicit buy-in from the detachment community regarding changes. In this new arrangement we have no choice but to work together. With that said every one of the 15 detachments will have an LMO representative assigned to them. Your LMO rep is me! He will be logging into your forums and contributing to your community, if he isn’t already doing so. The LMO office needs to be active in your community. That way we may fully understand each detachment’s vision and needs if we are going to support your CRL needs. What is the next step in this glorious shiny new hug-fest? I am asking the DL to send their LMO representative (or post up) a list of CRL goals as well as issues, concerns, gripes, problems, woes that we can help with. I will be integrating that list into my ongoing high level goals for 2016 that will be posted publically on the forums. I encourage any discussion between the dets and the LMO office to occur out in the open on the forums as much as possible. If anyone reading this (and hasn’t dozed off) has a question of any kind they are welcome to PM me anywhere or email me. Your DL will be receiving my phone number shortly and is welcome to text or call anytime for any reason. Let’s get some poodoo done this year. -Eric
  8. Greetings from Watertown MA. Have you also signed up for the NEG forums? (if you have I apologize for not paying better attention). http://www.501neg.com/forum/ If you need any in-person help please let me or anyone else in the NEG know. You can PM me here or post in this thread. Otherwise you're in good hands here on FISD. -Eric
  9. ^this Geez Pete... is that all you care about? St. Pats? -Eric
  10. I've seen some holster folks put a little pouch on the backside of an E-11 holster for cards. I suddenly realized that one of these things might do the trick for cards/money... in your armor or the backside of your holster so you can get at it more easily. http://smile.amazon.com/Sinjimoru-Sinji-Pouch-Adhesive-accessory/dp/B005ZVVJ1I/ http://www.amazon.com/CardNinja-Ultra-slim-Adhesive-Credit-Smartphones/dp/B009ZVL7N4 A stick on card thingy. -Eric
  11. Folks, Cut out the personal attacks and name calling. It's getting a little too adversarial for my tastes. Imagine you're a new person to FISD reading this thread. What would you think of our community? Keep that in mind when you feel accusatory. Keep it civil and professional or don't post at all. Thanks, -Eric Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That's why we're here sir. For the record: I love the haggling. -Eric
  13. It is not a simple costume Even without the detail haggling going on. -Eric
  14. Have you ever noticed that the ANH forearm section says they need to be "closed" not glued. That is a historical artifact to ensure FX folks didn't have their forearms way open looking like crap. BUT the wording was carefully not ever changed to allow velcro. In fact I know of a handful of folks who went EIB with well hidden velcro in their forearms. Some of us have really big hands ya know! The ANH thighs are worded the same way too and never changed: "Thigh armor shall be closed in the back." Put velcro on your thighs if you want, it's a very silly thing to do, but not forbidden. Just make sure you buy thin velcro and it isn't seen under your cover strip! -Eric
  15. This is no longer entirely true. In fact it is the other way around thanks to Anderson's Operating Protocol change last year. L1 is up to the det with the LMO advising. Here is the relevant section of the OP. Two things changed last year: First is that CRLs are the DL or det's responsibility. The CRLs shouldn't change unless both the DL (or CRL liaison) and the LMO agree. That means the LMO can't just drop changes into a det's lap as well. The DL is supposed to "solit feedback" from the membership to decide what to put in the CRLs. This thread counts as such. Second is that the LMO cannot add a costume to the roster until the det has finished the CRL. No more white boxes. This is rarely a problem for FISD but a lot of dets have empty CRLs. This is how the Legacy trooper, TFA TK, and Kylo Ren were added. (Because FISD is the model for the way dets should work) The wording itself... in comic sans... -Eric
  16. What's really funny about not approving those troopers is that GMLs stop approvals for all sorts of things that are not in the base level CRL. Many either make up stuff because they think they see it on screen or take things from L2/L3 and use them for base approval. But they can't use common sense when reading the words of a CRL. If you're going outside the L1 CRL it should work both ways with a healthy dose of common sense. Those troopers look amazing and that is what should matter, not a silly seam. We as a club should err on the side of inclusion. The culture of GML approvals is broken. With that said, I think the bicep seams and other seams should be put in the CRL as an OR for L1. But that is up to Tim what gets voted on later this year. -Eric
  17. Greetings from Watertown MA. I saw you signed up on the NEG forums already. Let us know how we can help! -Eric
  18. Check out the bottom of the Hero CRL It's silly... very silly. Few every notice it is there. -Eric
  19. Ok then. I totally couldn't tell from your photos. Rock on then. -Eric
  20. Dude man you look great. Really great. Your shins could come down a skosh. Your GML may ding you on the belt which according to the CRL should be: The belt is ribbed and made from a rubber or a rubber like material -Eric
