Hi Gents and Ladies,
i just felt the need to tell you guys how much i love this community. The positivity, creativity and sheer volume of cool stuff all of us make and share this forum is overwelming! I’ve only been here for about 1.5 years but it feels like i’ve been here forever.
Before coming here i didn’t really enjoy forums. They were cumbersome and generally hard to join, at least it felt like that to me. This place isn’t like that. The replies on my first post on CDO were so welcoming and uplifting i had a huge boost in productivity!
I love the work we all put in the competitions, in the zine, the podcasts, spreading the word of hashut to other places. You see the passion in everything on this forum.
I especially love the fact that there are people on this forum with much better skills in 1 (or 9) aspects of the hobby, yet they still find time to write positive and usuful feedback, or five a compliment when ou share your work.
I have never felt like any of you are inacessible for questions, in fact all of you are very willing to share your knowledge!
Seeing the quality of the stuff some of you enter in the Golden Hats makes me jealous and proud, yet i never feel outdone or ashamed of what i entered. To all the new members, please don’t be afraid to join any of the competitions!
Finally I’d like to wish you all a great holiday season, even if I’m a bit early, and wish those of you participating in the BATG the best of luck! I hope to only seen negative scores and be able to hand out badges to each of you around this time next year!
I love you guys!
