Attention storm chasers! As a small part of the development team with the "new" Stormtrack I have taken on a shared role of spearheading the "Who's Who of Storm Chasing" portion of the forum, located here: https://stormtrack.org/weather_library/?title=Whos-Who-in-Storm-Chasing If you remember, I was the creator of "Chaser Profiles" back in 2012 and it was a hit while it lasted.
