Once again it is my privilege to announce to the clan some new leadership appointments as a result of positions becoming available. [BBF] Itchy has been promoted to the rank of Major General, [BBF]Ariakas has been promoted to the rank of Brigadier General, and [BBF]Smiggy has been promoted to the rank of Colonel Regiment Commander.

[BBF] Itchy's promotion will move him to the rank of Major General, which is responsible for clan outreach, identifying and promoting future games for the clan, and overseeing the Brigadier General.

[BBF]Ariakas' promotion moves him up a rank to Brigadier General. In his new position, Ariakas will oversee all current regiments in the clan, work to address clan recruitment and resolve any recruitment issues that arise, work to revive JFF games and retired games that might still be popular with members, and also will oversee the Regiment Commander.

[BBF]Smiggy will step into the Regiment Commander position that Ariakas will be vacating. In this position Smiggy will be working with, overseeing, and assigning the Game Commanders. He will also be involved in the production of the monthly roll call report.

Welcome to BBFhq10
After months of hard work by clan members and our outside design team, Baptized by Fire is pleased to show you to our newest site design. The new website features both a content management system (CMS) upgrade as well as a change in forum software. Both of these changes were made to allow us access to tools that we were not able to easily utilize with our previous site version. This added functionality helps to bring the website up to date and gives us extra ways of communicating with clan members as well as site visitors.

You have undoubtedly noticed that the new layout is a complete rework from our previous site design. This was an intentional change as our previous design suffered from large areas of white. We hope that you agree that we have addressed this issue with the new design. While our color palette remains constant we have used greys and blacks more often to produce a darker theme which we hope will be easier on the eyes.

Feel free to explore the pages of the new site, I am sure you will find new features intermixed with the familiar content. Questions, requests, and feedback regarding the site can be placed in our new forum Site Requests, Feedback, and F.A.Q. We will continue to customize and modify the site to meet our future needs. Keep your eyes open for our next update!
