The science of history is a great bulwark against the stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of oblivion

(oops! really late on this one)

Will you please adopt one of the new June 2013 microbadge orphans?

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me here this evening to discuss a matter of great importance.

Microbadge designers slave away for countless hours every month to raise up new microbadges from the depths of nothingness into full fledged 16x16 works of art. Then they send out their new babies into the BGG wilds to find new families who will love, nurture, and display them proudly under their avatars and in their profiles. For a microbadge there is no greater joy!!

But sadly I come before you tonight with a troubling tale. Some microbadges find no family in the cold harsh streets of BGG and are simply left to hide in the shadows under the geeklist overpasses only dreaming that one day someone will spot them and love them for who they are. Who are these microbadges? They are the obscure, quirky, and sometimes wart-laden - but regardless they all deserve love and above all else A HOME!

How do you adopt?

Just pick one of the microbadges below, post the microbadge in your message and let everyone know why you want it. Then you have two options:

1) If a cute little urchin microbadge catches your eye, buy the microbadge yourself - the microbadges and designers thank you! Just let us know in your post that you've completed a full adoption!

2) Post which badge you want to adopt and wait for financial assistance from myself and others. I will tip at least one for everyone who makes an adoption donation request, possibly more if GG finances permit.

Also: there is a microbadge available for purchase to show your support of the initiative as well  I gave a loving home to an orphan microbadge

Once every badge has found a home I will update the original post and new adoptions will be closed

Thank you for supporting the children microbadges!!!

I'll fully sponsor the first 5 adoptions for people who already have the mb badge to thank you for your continued support of the initiative!

Full adoption funding limit reached - I'll still tip adoptions though!

I made that after a request but the "requester" didn't seem to like it. Or is a dead-beat like me...

After you bought the game, you now just need the corresponding microbadge to go with it

I have adopted these three. Still 14.16.080gg short of being able to buy the complete set for where all I've played, but I guess I can just start out with buying the others early while I hit geekmod to gather the rest. (edit: thanks!) thumbsup

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.
