And the point of all this is------------What ????????????????
There is no point . That I expect anyone to care about or understand .
Back when I was a CC Owner it made sense for me to keep various lists of active and or non active members of my CC .
Lists of who received what award . Who didn't .Trophy's , XP's , participants , etc
Those lists . Especially the members lists . Were many . And not well organized . And still on my computer .And amounted into the hundreds .
I only made half assed efforts to organize them over the years .I ignored them thinking I would get to it someday .
One list became an interest for me . How many players actually came through VOTSCC over the 5 plus years of its existence . I knew the number would be high . I thought somewhere around 400 to 500 .I still don't have an exact count . But it is up towards 600 and likely 700 .
So I started sorting them out .
About that time . Something happened in my website . Still basically unexplained to me .
Which found a GR8 amount of my files in my website had been corrupted in the same way .
Whether I could get an explanation or not . I had to fix it .
Some of my most cherished forums ( threads or topics ) . Were nearly ruined almost unreadable .

THE NEW LONG WALL
To name just a couple few out of dozens of very important TO ME efforts .
Those repairs included needing to have at least the usernames of the players/members/people in the thread . Those lists then became more organized and populated .
It took inside of a year to make the main repairs on most of the corrupt files . I am still finding some .
So anyway I now had members lists consisting of VOTSCCers , friends , acquaintances , CCowners , multiplayer mates , etc . Was 1 list .
The players/members of the wall list . Was another .
The ANDYSON MEMORIAL lists . Were another .
And as I was sorting all of them out . As necessary to repair my website /hobby .
Another list became apparent . The " TRAILBLAZERS " . A group I felt compelled to pay tribute to . A completely new group of players/members . Making another list .
So for the reasons I have stated above and many more that I would not expect you to understand . And could care less if you do . There is / was absolute justification for me to have these lists .
That is the short version of how the short list came to be .
