This award is for the person who acts as the rudder that steers the ship. Whether moving in the public eye, or behind the scenes, his hand is always on the tiller keeping the site at optimum performance.
Time and time again, our benevolent Dirktator has ensured that Simtropolis runs smoothly, adding new features, upgrading the software, and fixing bugs. He has been there for us through it all, working hard to ensure that the community remains a fun place for all. We may not see him as much as in the days of old, but when he makes a public appearance, such as at Maxis, we ALL rush to go see. Thanks for all you do, Dirk!
