´╗┐The original records that The Syndicate held were all about "continuous" operation. An entity had to be able to objectively prove they were in existence for the entire time. They couldn't just claim it on their website. They couldn't have a break in service where they were not an active gaming community. They had to have 25+ years of continuous operation that was provable by objective, third party sources. Somewhere along the way that changed and the record dropped that wording. Regardless of that change, The Syndicate has maintained continual, uninterrupted operations, under the same leadership, with hundreds of members for 25 years. In 2021, the record was updated, using those objective, third party sources to demonstrate that and was re-awarded to The Syndicate.
