Sometimes we receive so many news reports that we just can't post them all. Recently we've been getting a lot of quality reports from a single member, and I felt the only way to ever stay on top of them was to add him to the News Team. So who is this mysterious Jake? Read on to find out!

Congrats, Paleo! ^^

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...

Congrats, Paleo! When I read the announcement I thought that could be me if it weren´t for the "recently" as I´ve already been reporting news for years, but also because you´ve been reporting even more than I have in the past months. I think this is the first time someone becomes a Reporter for reporting news a lot, so not only congrats on becoming a Reporter and on jumping from +1 proto to +5 proto and becoming staff after little more than one year of membership, but also on writing BZPower history. :) I´m sure you´ll do an excellent job, and I look forward to your news articles.-Gata Posted Image

Paleo, every time I saw you I accidentally thought you were staff, so in my mind congratulating you is useless, even though I'll now know that I may be psychic but that I am now right.But congratulations anyway! :D

After noticing all the news reports with "Source: Paleo" in them...I never would have doubted his fate. Although it is surprising that he was rewarded in such a prompt manner. Congratulations, Paleo! I still look forward to seeing you on the forums...
