Star Army is Wes's passion and he spends nearly all of his free time and a significant portion of his income contributing to Star Army in some form. Wes is responsible for several of the community's most important roles:
Wes is directly involved in all levels of the site. Although Wes has appointed co-administrators over the years, he has remained a driving force behind the community.

Wes is focused on constantly improving Star Army and its sustainability. For this reason, Wes maintains a huge List of Projects to better the site and he actively works to make the site friendly and understandable to new players and to see that individuals with Game Master potential are put in places where they can develop.
