View Full Version : A Completely Spontaneous Thank You Thread!

People have never doubted that I'm crazy or random, but looking through old threads and the like, and getting nostalgic..I decided to make another thank you thread. Besides, it's almost 2AM and I'll probably wake up wondering what the hell I was on last night..so cherish this while you can!

In all seriousness I have a reason to be thankful, as despite the 3 year history we've had as a website, a lot of you who now post here regulary, have only joined the past 1-2 years. This has made for a large boost in site and forum traffic over the past year and a half, even while the site was going through some severe technical problems of its own.

As many of you already know, in the past 6 months this site has gone through some of the hardest times its ever experienced as a site, since opening in 2002. In this hard time our members have had to deal with severe and frequent downtimes, site slowness, frustrating server moves and to top it off, two hackings only a few weeks apart from eachother.

While those issues would possibly spell death for any other website, you (our beloved members) have stuck with us through thick and thin, never leaving us or giving up hope on us on a whole, and that my friends...warms my heart. The entire lot of you have been so understanding throughout everything that has gone on and I dont think we would've been able to handle it without such a great group of people as yourselves.

To boost our morale, since the server and forum switch our hits have continued to grow by 1 million with each passing month. It would appear our site is getting bigger and bigger, and once again..that wouldn't be possible without any of you.

So for all of this, I thank you..and here's looking forward to another 3 years of LPAssociation.com!

Sincerely,
Derek

Well, it's not like this place is a like a drug and secound home to me, of course not. :lol:

You've done a great job managing the site, and not getting fed up through all of the troubles you've been put through. Hell, you could of dropped the site months ago, throughout all the hackings, and server problems, saying you've had enough. But you've stayed put. That is what makes an excellent forum administrator. Never giving up.

Plus even if you did give you, your house would be burnt down the next day ... wait, did I say that out loud? :ph34r:

And to put up with me is also a huge accomplishment. Good job. :lol:
[ I'd insert another comment here, but I think someone would jump down my throat. You know who you are and what I'm talking about. ;) ]

If you mean me, I had been wanting to make a thank you thread for quite some time (not so spontaneous then is it?) but I wasn't able to get off my lazy ass and do it.

Now I finally have :D.

Just because I made you look through raps last night, doesn't mean you have to thank me about it!
