This is mainly for you Tom - Thank you! Smile

Before joining this forum i was (as so many others) on the SG forums, and was mainly writing rules and such. This started as a secondary choice while SG was down, but after joining TBMF, I've refound my joy for painting/modeling and I must say I don't think that would have happened without all you guys work inspiring me... I just noticed a link in my favorites with the SG forums, and i realized that i haven't even given it a thought - you guys complete me haha! (In a completely non-gay and very nerdy way! geek)

In short: Thanks Tom, for an AWESOME forum! Thanks TBMF'ers for keeping it the way it is! Very Happy

Yikes. For a moment I thought this was a farewell post from you Pwny. Don't scare me like that Shocked

I've had a similar experience with SG and TBM forums. I do miss the "official" rules answers by the SG mods, but besides that, this forum takes the cake in all regards (and we still have Da Bank Very Happy). I must say, the community here has opened up my eyes to an entirely new level of painting, modeling, and terrain building. You guys do it better than the professionals, and (most importantly) love doing it!

I agree with MLP - this site has made me appreciate and focus far more on the hobby aspect of the game then the playing of it.

Well seems like you need a sticky and gooey group hug Razz *transforms into scorpion and say "GET OVER HERE" spluuuurtch*
(if anyone didn't get that, go play mortal combat.. for 10 years! and then come back and re-read)
(the 10 year part is just because it's cool - you'll know it after 1-2 fights..)
(no more of these stupid comments - please)
(sorry)

Wow, guys, thanks a lot!

Too much praise for a little guy like me! Very Happy

I am very happy that the spirit of this forum has had such a good influence on your hobby experience and I greatly appreciate this thread!

Of course this forum is a special spot, because of the many talented and friendly people that participate in it. Making TBMF a cool hang-out - centered around the painting/modelling aspect - is a group "effort" and that's why I think the praise should go to all of you guys who joined and thus entered into the spirit of TBMF. And you guys keep it alive!

I am proud to have been able to create the nucleus of a forum that attracts so many interesting and enthusiastic people.

You guys take the time to convert, paint, photograph and share your work and advice with the others, which really is what TBMF is all about!

I think a big chunk of the praise should also go to my great mods (especially Cianty, DeafNala and Matt) who's help is invaluable to me! The forum is constantly growing and with over 300 members and 24.000+ posts, you can imagine that the administration has become quite a task! Smile
They constantly give me their feedback, challenge the status quo (a good thing if you want to improve stuff!), and make sure that things run smoothly.

So thanks again for this thread guys, and, at the general request...

*waves magic admin wand*

Stickied! geek

And from me too:

Thanks a lot, Tom and the mods, for keeping this great place up and running,
and
thanks a lot, everyone, for being such an awesome community, in my opinion one of (you have to be modest Wink ) the most competent and friendly on the web. Nowhere can you find so much encouragment, friendly advice and inspiration clustered in one spot.

Hopefully, we will have some fun decades yet to come Wink

And let's not forget, probably the only forum that has managed to gang up gamers from different nations TWICE so far, for "boring Mordheim meetings" Smile

I think that is quite remarkable.

Yeah, you now, like we move all into Tom's Boring Old Age Residency together and build a monstrous ruined city similar to the Temple of Herod of the old Briton Very Happy

But finding out why Matt is a moderator will remain one of the Great Mysteries of the Forum Wink (Hello there, matt, how are you?)

are there any urban legends surrounding his nomination? or should I compose some songs involving his heroic powers and great deeds over here on the forum?

Tom's Boring Residency sounds dangerously close to the actual truth! hahah cant wait to sign up Suspect I'm afraid of the nightnurses out there...

hmmm smells like spam here... sorry

HURRAY FOR TOM'S JUDGEMENT IN THE MOD CASES! Wink and yes, from me too, a round of applause for them
