Yes @Mad1max9 !
I just think it’s key to remember that it’s a game and the reason most of us are still here is each other.
There’s obviously a rarified area that the makers are tapped into, they don’t care about us.
But we care about us. And that’s what matters.
Not to turn this into the ‘random appreciatiom thread’ but one of the things I like to do is say thank you to people and point out some positives.
Like @Luna whose infectious enthusiasm and chatty ways constantly entertain.
Like @Sarah2 (who I was childishly overawed by when she popped into TBD for the first time after I’d joined. “Oh wow, Sarah from the forums!”.) Her advice and grounded voice were key when I started coming here and continue to be so.
Like @Macaque1902 and @Bruton who feel like family because they’re wonderful and have been part of my life nearly as long as my son.
Like @Control_Freq who blossomed in TBD and flew off to different pastures and who I miss being in an alliance with.
Like @PlayForFun who deserves far more than he gets from his thankless but incredible job in keeping us updated.
Like @RandaPanduh who has the literal best way of formatting her salient thoughts and getting her point across.
Like @L33tVortex12596 whose Verucca Salt avatar I look forward to seeing in threads because it’ll be something worth reading.
And to so many others who warrant mentions but I’ve turned this into an Oscar winners speech so I’ll stop before I thank my parents and a primary school teacher.
We are what makes this place. That gets forgotten. We make friends, move between alliances and stay in contact.
Happy Friday, peeps! Don’t let the buggers get you down.
Edit - let’s get the music started! Off to the KitKat thread, wooooooo!
