Re: NewMars.com Editorial Board Nominations Closed

I hereby nominate the following three individuals to the Editorial Board of the New Mars Forums:

Richard Wagner
Adrian Hon
Josh Cryer

Richard Wagner is the founder of the New Mars Journal and served as its primary editor in 1998-99 during the founding of the Mars Society.  It was the Mars Society's official online magazine in those days. You can view past examples of his work here (unfortunately not all of these links have the images associated)

http://web.archive.org/web/199902080151 … wmars.com/
http://web.archive.org/web/199902100955 … wmars.com/

Adrian Hon won the Hakluyt Prize for his letter in support of Mars Exploration.  He was active in the Mars Society's UK chapter and Youth chapter.  He later helped transition the New Mars Journal into an active forums system for the Mars Society.

Josh Cryer has been the unofficial and official forum administrator since the beginning of the New Mars forums, and more recently has been invaluable in the restoration and upkeep of the current forums system.  In addition, he has served as a moderator in several of our forums and created our current set of forum rules.

I feel that these individuals, all of huge stature, would be of tremendous value in the continued improvement of the New Mars Journal & Forums.

Thanks,

James Burk
