Shorah, Maintainers!

I've just completed a write-up on the entire age creation process on the Guild of Writers Wiki, starting from an idea and continuing on through multiple releases of the age. I tried to portray the Maintainers' role in this process as accurately as I could remember it, but I sure could use your feedback.

Here's the link to the article:

You are a good writer and explainer, Robert. It takes time to prepare articles of this quality. Thank you!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

I'd like to add some images in order to break apart the massive blocks of text to keep it interesting. In particular, I want to make a collage of Maintainers in their suits visiting various explorer-created ages.

If anyone has any such screenshots, please post a link to them here. I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks for the photos, Leonardo. Those are some great shots of Gahressen! Looks like your Maintainer group inspected every nook and cranny of the place.

Does anyone have any shots of yourselves in Maintainer suits wandering around explorer-created ages?

Yes, but I've not uploaded them yet. Is it OK not to be wearing the helmet? I find it restricts the view a bit too much (but don't tell Frisky Badger -- he's very hot on safety issues).
