It is the first year in my Eve career that I spent an entire calendar year in one Corporation. I've been in the Tuskers for over a year now and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
So let's take a look back at the past year here on Eveoganda. I'm going to start it off by giving you several different lists of posts from the past year. The first one is my Top Ten favorites from the past year, in no particular order:
RJ's Favorites: Top Ten
These are the ones I'm most proud of!
• Posting As: Jester's Trek - I write a post pretending to be RipardTeg.
• Posting As: Mord Fiddle - You can probably guess what this one is.
• The Frill is Gone! - The post that started it all and brought the Frill back to New Eden!
• The CCP Pledge - Seriously important post.
• The Unexplained Journey - One of my best ideas ever.
• The Ring of Fire Project - Followed by one of the most important posts ever.
• Pay Per Kill - And my most predictive posts ever, as this series preceded the new Bounty System.
• GCC The Stand in the Corner Mechanic - Man, I was on a roll.
• EVEOTORIAL: The Sandbox - one of the smartest things I've written about Eve.

Despite a rough start, 2012 was my third year writing Eveoganda. And I think it was the best year yet. The Eve Community is stronger than ever and we've stepped up to plate on a variety of issues this past year and taken responsibility for helping to shape the conversation about our beloved game. I'm not taking all the credit for this, nor even a percentage of the credit, it has been a community-wide effort and something we should all take credit for. I'm proud of my fellow Eve Bloggers, those in Tweetfleet, and everyone that reads and contributes in their own way.
It is the reason I stick around and put so much effort and time into something when I have better things to be doing.
Enjoy. Explore the archives. And hang on to your hats!! 2013 is going to be a Hek of a Year! (Unless the Mayans kill us all of course.)
