This Week at ADB, Inc., 16-22 August 2015

Steve Cole reports:

This was the week of significant progress. The Federation & Empire counters arrived, restoring the F&E Boxed Set, F&E Advanced Operations, and F&E Reinforcements to stock. We also moved our shopping cart to a new host, upgraded the software, and added the new items. Fans began buying the new counters. The weather this week was hot. The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day.

New on DriveThru RPG and Wargame Vault this week were Captain's Log #14 and SFB Commander's Edition Update #2.

Steve Cole worked on the Fighter Operations 2015 rulebook, completing the changes and sending the whole thing to the staff. Steve's injuries (from his accident last week) kept him from exercising much, but he managed to make a quarter mile every day.

Steven Petrick worked on Captain's Log #51 and the Klingon Master Starship Book (which would be finished except that Steve Cole was too busy with FO15 to create the Early Years and X-ship art). Steven Petrick proofread FO15 in a bid to move that project forward and out of the way. He made some updates to Romulan Master Starship Book but that book remains mostly on hold as the staff focuses on the final fixes of Klingon Master Starship Book.  

The Starlist Update Project moved forward with three new entries.

Leanna kept orders and accounting up to date.

Mike kept orders going out and rebuilt the inventory.

Simone did website updates and some graphics.

Jean won the "Battle of the Fighter Hyphens" against the Steves, managed our page on Facebook (which is up to 2,722 friends), managed our Twitter feed (156 followers), commanded the Rangers, dealt with the continuing spam assault on the BBS, managed the blog feed, proofread (About Federation & Empire, Klingon Master Starship Book, Fighter Operations 2015), took care of customers, uploaded PDFs, and did some marketing.
