This page is for all the members of G.A.B.'s Ebony Team. You can check here for official reference lists for all the team members. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send me mail. In the table below, the Team Member link will take you to the team member's reference list and information page, and Real Name link will allow you to send mail to the team member.

For those of you in G.A.B., or comtemplating a trade with a G.A.B. member, you may view G.A.B.'s Oath and Code of Conduct. If you feel a member has not dealt fairly with you please let me know.

This list and all references are current as of 07 October, 2014.
For more information on G.A.B., please visit the official web site.

Note on bad addresses: Many AOL users set up their mailboxes to disable mail from outside AOL. These users are marked as bad addresses because I have no way of sending them mail to verify references, and non-AOL users have no way of using them as references. Also, just because a reference is valid when checked doesn't mean it's still valid. People change e-mail addresses, so you may not be able to reach a listed reference.

Retired members

Sometimes, a member gets tired of trading, or decides to leave G.A.B. for personal reasons. We're always sorry to see them go, but they're welcome back any time they wish to return. Because they have left the trading biz, their profiles are no longer available here.

Transferred members

From time to time, a member will either request a transfer, or will be transferred for other reasons.

The Significance of Rank

The member's rank indicated the number of confirmed good trading references he or she has attained. Upon reaching the rank of Vice Admiral, the member may be assigned command of a G.A.B. team or special duty (at the discretion of the Grand Admiral). The rankings are as follows:

Rank    # of confirmed references
Ensignnone
Lieutenant (Junior Grade)*1
Lieutenant2-5
Lieutenant Commander6-15
Commander16-30
Captain31-50
Vice Admiral51+
Admiral51+ (and a Team Leader or on special assignment)
Grand Admiralthere's only one

* Note that Lieutenant (Junior Grade) is not an official G.A.B. rank, but I use it here to indicate that a member has exactly 1 good trading reference. Any member with this rank has an actual G.A.B. rank of Lieutenant.

The icons used in the members' table are reprentative of the U.S. Navy's collar insignia. This does not constitute an endorsement of the G.A.B. Ebony Team by the U.S. Navy, nor does it constitute an endorsement of the U.S. Navy by the G.A.B. Ebony Team. Your mileage may vary. All rights reserved. An important part of a nutritious breakfast.
