I haven't done one of these posts in a while, but figure this is a great time.

And before I start, I want to do a shout out to the Forum staff: @Overlord, @Arry, @xiagan, @Elfy. Am I missing anyone? You guys give us regulars, all the irregulars, and lurkers an amazing gift keeping this up and running, and always trying to improve the experience. Thank you.

Since November last year when I joined F-F:

> I've made a bunch of great friends: @ScarletBea, @Elfy, @Chilly, @Henry Dale, @Eclipse, @Lady_Ty, @Nora, @ohfuckit-the-list-goes-on, and I don't mean for anyone to feel slighted

> I've written 11 stories for the monthly contests (yes, only 10 months, but there was that one that Atku posted and retracted), 4 Birthday stories, 4 different starts ot the same novel (or is it 5?). I've never been this productive, and it's due to the Monthly Contest, the Writing Groups and the the friends here

> Spent a freaking huge number of hours on this Forum

> Read books I'd have never heard of... thanks, Book Club (and sorry I'm not always that good about posting there)

> Been intensely jealous of folks who just take a train or a drive down to the Grim Gathering

> Been shown great care over personal difficulties and tried to return the care

> Had a fantastic time. What @Overlord got going (and keeps going) and we all invest in every day is something pretty special.

Thanks everyone. I'm having a great time.

-- John

I believed it fitting:

Congratulations and thank you, Jmack!  :)

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Yaaay -congratulations. You keep us smiling and although you're Master Namer for a while as far as I'm concerned you'll always be Kingy  ;D

And the sorceress Scarlet predicts (she saw it in her books) that soon Chilly will be Ta'veren ;D

Exactly how is that evil?

So that was the purpose behind the Atku-hunting then? :D
