Hi guys,
for the next release of the GPLPS Installer I collected 'important' names. The main reason is that I believe while a group like the GPLEA seems to be very easy to count it isn't. A lot of the earlier people, which had been so important cracking all the little secrets, is more or less lost due to the fact that over the releases the "Thanks to ..." get's more and more actual. To honor most of them I would like to include them and thank them all :)

Here's my current list:


Nils Ruwisch, Gustavo Olivera, Ken Drouillard, Michel Vigneres, JackSeller, Mike Tyler, Michal Beran, Rory Gibson, Gary Tall, Peter Lohmar, Roger Wennström, Paul Jackson, Bill, Phil Flack, luna, Royale, Arturo Pereira, David Wright, Dave Noonan, Paul Thurston, Tim Weathley, Mark Beckman, Keeper, Seegert, Remy, Ginetto, Border Riever, Nigel Pattinson, ducwolf, Remco, Dave Allam, Peter Allam, Steffen Wietzdörfer, Klas, Simon Stobbart, John Bradley, Uwe Schuerkamp, Greger Huttu, Roland Ehnstrom, Caballero, Bob Hund, Fred Faster, Werner Dielen, Sebastien Riou, Scotty, Andre Streu, Bart Westra, JHalli, Rudy Dingemans, Tommie (TVO), Bruce M. Johnson, Ian Barrett, brr, jbviking, Irridux, van Gossum, Jim Pearson, Alison Hine, Fast Tommi, Stefan Roess, Eric Bourgouin, Lou Magyar, Polar Blue, simbear, Lee, Stefan Magnusson, Andrew Olley, Götz Poppitz, Pedro Johansson, Thorsten Thierolf, Karsten Borchers, Harri Ikonen, Martijn Keizer, US Pits, Lee Bowden, Stefan Magnusson, Kari Ikonen, David Crowell, Tim Medcalf, Jonas Matton and Martin Granberg.

If you know more 'important' persons please add them. What would GPL without all these people :)

Ah, that's some important ones for sure. Bob Simpson and Paul Skingley should have been in and I for sure thought I had them in the list already. Sorry Bob and Paul but this was just a sign of age :)
Eguzo and Citytea for sure.

Because we have lost RSC it's also like a memory lane to bring back the names for me.

Scottie was in but again a typo :)
How about Pete Gaimari (hope I spelled his name right) ? Even forget his great nickname but not his threads :)
And there was Chris Moses, Achim Trensz and Doug Arnao :)

Is this to be a list of everyone who's contributed something of quality, usefulness, and/or general-wonderfulness to GPL over the years?

If so, I'd like to offer a couple of track authors, if they aren't in the list already:
Arthur Slabbaert (in memoriam) - he only produced a single track, but it's one of the greats.
Brent Adams
Martin (smogbike) Pitts
Strava
KELLLAAA68
Mauro Traversa

(If you want to be comprehensive, go to GPLtd, do an Advanced Search, and just snag all the names from the Authors selection box.)

Don Hodgdon - who was doing BAPOM covers before there was a BAPOM...

It's always somehow subjective what might be useful or not but it's a list with some know names as well as like some today's unknown names which had been somehow important because they had done early setups/edits and made programs or like the ones you had listed done some tracks.
Or in the case of Pete Gaimari has submitted a great amount of data. Sometimes useful, sometimes to bring a smile.

It's not a simple list of just doing a sql search for track builder names in the gpltd :) But thinking about this it would be not a bad idea to add those names too before they are lost.

It's really because doing the installer I stumpled across a web page where you could see the development of cars. Ah, found it. On the GPLPP.COM, when you select cars/my cars/brabham you will see a bit of historic information and see some of the names. So there's a lot of people which have contributed and I would like those too with the new installer. Maybe adding something like a movie file would be great like a gigantic movie end credits with some cars shown in the background and the names in front :)


Nah, I'm happy if I finish this project and then do some laps in GPL :)
