Anyone know of places to buy cheap, good quality sheet protectors? Or which brands tend to be best quality to price wise?

We have a very sophisticated system of tabs and a table of contents, so we are able to maneuver to the right topics in our binder with relative ease... so then its beneficial to have more information?
That sounds great! As long as your binder is useful to you in an event, then you can have as much info as you want. Like I said, it's all about what works for you.

I use Staples sheet protectors in all of my SciOly binders, so I can vouch for those. They're cheap, and you can buy a lot of them in one package. However, I'm sure other brands are fine. Staples is just what I have access to.

Short answer: Wiki work. I wrote most of the Designer Genes wiki page and added a lot of events to the Trial Event page (as well as made pages for some of the events on that page without pages). I've also done a lot more miscellaneous work around the wiki, so that's why I'm exalted despite the fact that I don't have that many posts on the forums.

To add on to this, wiki work is weighted more heavily than posting when it comes to awarding exalted medals. There are exalted members that have zero posts on the forums. It's theoretically possible to become an exalted member just by outstanding content of forum posts, but it's very difficult.

Wait a minute, I just realized that you're not exalted East. Maybe it was just me, but I thought that you did quite a bit of wiki work.

Medals go away when you become staff. Trading recognition for responsibility, as someone once said.

If you go to my profile, you can see I'm still in the Exalted Member group. Administrator is a higher rank, though, so that's the one that shows up.
