I imagine it would be a matter of being where ever the person qualified to make that commendation was at that particular day to witness whatever deed you performed to earn it. I also imagine that there are a precious few who qualify to make that particular commendation, and those people would rarely be at a local field.
Sure, I could make a brigade page, but am I going to remember 20 years worth of games to record?
I could say I own over 60 markers, and have Generalled 14 scenario games with a record of 12:2, but how do you prove that? And what good does it do me to try and prove it?
I'll admit that a brigade page can help with your personal stats, if you have a need to keep track of such things but using it to achieve some kind of recognition is useless. Anyone can post anything in there, real or not.
Those stats I mentioned were real, I've been playing since 1988 and run a small museum of paintball. I've met most of the biggest names in the industry, but how do I prove that to a bunch of folks on the internet?
Here's my daughter with a few people:
The One and Only Sgt. Splatter:
Rob "Tyger" Rubin and Dawn Alcott (editor of Recon magazine):
Renee Bouchard (editor of Scenario News):
Mother and PacMan of MXS (and Mojo the dog):
Winning the MVP Award from "Smokin' Joe" Stayback:
Mike "Blue" haanse:
"Action Bob" Landstrum:
Or maybe a vid of several dozen markers:
("God plays with an Automag" ~ that T-shirt was from the 28 hour game at Survival New York in 1996
Does all that prove anything? Or pics that are not digital of me with Jerry Braun, Paul Fogal or Jim Iulo make a difference? Most players don't even know those names.
So in my opinion a brigade page is for you, yourself. Not to try and garner special points from people who don't affect your game.
Sorry about all this, I just got off on a rant.
