Welcome Comrades to the 61st edition of the Dispatch :)

Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays, Conquer Club! It seems Webmaster lackattack has given the community information about his next update as a sort of Christmas present :) Head on over to the official thread in General Discussion to give your input on the coming update!

In other news, WPBRJ and DJ Teflon are accepting clans for the Clan League Season 4 and the results of the Fantasy / Sci-Fi Tournament Contest should be made known in the near future, methinks... ;)

And I'm sure many of you Subscribers are looking forward to the Subscriber if the Issue! This issue, it is i_am_the_walrus! Just PM me a suggestion from the Submitted Suggestions forum (including a link to the thread) that you'd like to see implemented for Christmas and the name of the absent Executive this issue in the title of your PM and a shiny new General Achievement medal is all yours! :D

As far as this issue goes, we've got a couple Christmas-themed articles from safariguy5 and thehippo8, a new Ask A Mod! article from yours truly, an interview with Global Moderator and Chatter, rdsrds2120, an overflowing War Games with Dukasaur and his eager new Reporters, NoSuvivors, sensfan and Fuzzy316, and a very special clan article from QuikSilver and DJoach, which includes the translated English article, and the original French version, for those of you international folk who might enjoy reading it in your own language :)

Enjoy the fruits of our laboring fingers!

Victor Sullivan
Chief Executive


P.S. We went over the smily max this issue! A moment of silence for all of the smilies that were disabled...

Happy Holidays to all my Freestyle readers out there. Just remember to take it easy on the eggnog and whatnot. This issue, rdsrds2120 is interviewed, Sully has a new Ask a Mod article, and I have some gift giving ideas.

Also, we welcome OleCowboyHippy to the freestyle team and we expect great articles in the future. I'm still taking applications, so PM me if you're interested in writing for the Freestyle Section.

Hello again my friends, and welcome to your favorite part of the Newsletter, "War Games", where you can find information about CC Tournaments! New volunteers have joined our ranks: I'm very pleased to introduce you to fuzzy316, sensfan, and NoSurvivors. All are experienced Tournament organisers and very creative writers, and I'm absolutely thrilled with the new material they've created. I think you will be too.

Fuzzy starts us off with his Official Tourney Update, covering the Conquer Cup and the Official 200 Maps tourney. After that, sensfan launches his new TPA Wrap (a much-expanded successor to our old TPA Update.) After that, we have not one but two great interviews in the Meet the Tournament Winners section: WorldCup4James talks to Robespierre_ while Fuzzy316 interviews abygorb. Then, we have the fourth installment of Dave's Tournament Tips; if you've been following this series, Dave's Tips are great for learning to use Excel to simplify your workload in running your Tournament. Enjoy! I've done Join This? Or Not!, our regular look at tournaments currently in sign-up, while NoSurrender launches Tourney of the Week, an in-depth look at just one.

Hello, hello! Actually it's Sully here again, covering for thehippo8 during his vacation! Ah, how odd it is that I am back here again (well, not so odd, I've only been Chief for around a month). Anywho, hippo still managed a Christmas article, suitable for time and theme, and koontz knocks 'em dead with two articles, one thinking ahead to the new year! Enjoy :)

Welcome Readers to the Platoon's Report on all things Clan
First things first, the Clan Directors (CD's) are still contemplating applications to their team, so throw your hat into the ring if you'd like to contribute in an important role for the Clan Community. (More information at the Volunteer Callout on specifics on applying)
Also, remember to hit up your clan leaders on CLA news that I'm no longer privy to ;) (like the advent of Season 4 of the Clan League, with Sign-ups billed for the turn of the year, and commencement slated to start by Mid January).

However, coming back to the exciting issue we have for you today, I'm excited to welcome QuikSilver and DJoach to our clan team - courtesy of the Dispatch's own Application Callout also visible in the link above.
These two new additions to the our reporting team break new ground with the foreign language element we're excited to see them bring to the table, as they unveil the first article dual-cast in a foreign language (french) that I've seen in the CC Newsletter. Since we've had Foreign Language Forums for so long on our Board Index, it's finally nice to see them get some representation in the Newsletter as well.

And of course what better article for these intrepid reporters to write on than the tale of the history and formation of their clan LHDD

We have been using more and more abbreviations and acronyms of clan names lately, so remember to peruse the [Official] List of Clans to decipher any quandary's you may be in.
