I'm bored, and I don't have anything good to do. So the DDO forums have been filled with loads of sh!t thrown around and flaming and passive-aggression lately...or so that's the vibe I'm getting. So...happy time, I guess:

Give some shoutouts to members who you think have done something positive recently, or someone who has been a positive person in your time here over the past few years...whatever. Just give a positive shoutout.

Well, no kidding, the first person I can think to give a positive shout out to is you. So.... Well then...

Shoutout to bsh1 for being one of the best presidents DDO has had. I know he's been involved in a fair deal of drama lately, but nonetheless, it's important for him to remember that we all respect and appreciate his sincerity and all the effort he's put into trying to make DDO a better place.

Off the top of my head, here are some people who've said funny, clever or interesting things recently: TBR; 1harder (this thread); Raisor; lamerde; Maikuru; popculturepooka; fly; skepsikyma (at least he tries); petfish; death23; airmax; bsh1 (although I disagree with most of what he says, it's still interesting); f-16; TUF; sengejuri and faustianjustice; magicaintreal (debating!); emmarie; philochristos.

There are lots more. I don't always remember people's names anyway. Actually, the best things I read are from people I don't "know" who are just debating and writing stuff.

Thanks DDO!!

Shoutout to both Diq and Hayd for being two of the most dedicated readers in the DDO Writer's Club. They input they've given a number of us truly is invaluable. And they're working to read and comment on stories with no real reward. It's a fair amount of effort. So thank you both.

Shoutout to Saph, who has tirelessly overseen the reformed Mafia beginners' series! That's another commitment which requires a large amount of time and energy. Yet Saph has handled it masterfully, and I have faith that she will continue to do so well into the future.

Oh yeah. TUF, tejretics. See, this is why these threads suck. People get left off because you can't mention everyone. I wish I hadn't posted now.

It doesn't have to be everyone...or anyone really important. It can be someone who flies under the radar for the most part. It can be anyone.

Shout-out to airmax for still putting up with our shenanigans and drama for 4 years. Shout-out to 1harder for being one of the biggest contributors to this site, yet also being mostly drama-free. Shout-out to bsh for trying to remain strong during his presidency to the bitter end. Shout-out to Esocial for being one of the most accepting and nicest members on the site. Shout-out to imabench for bringing "life" to the community. Shout-out to lannan13, Raisor, Skepsikyma, Maikuru, donald.keller, TUF, Cody_Franklin, Hayd, EndarkenedRationalist, inferno, TN05, ColeTrain, Greyparrot, tajshar2k, Romanii, Buddamoose, kasmic, Vaarka, dylancatlow, and tejretics for also being very strong, mostly drama-free contributors to the site and also staples of the community. Shout-out to thett3 for being the first major openly Trump supporter. Shout-out to UtherPenguin for being a strong and sometimes funny fellow poll maker. Shout-out to whiteflame and Blade-of-Truth for being wonderful mods and putting in the hard work for free. And finally, shout-out to Juggle for uniting us against a common enemy: you.

A shoutout to all my dear friends who have departed DDO, including but by no means limited to Rev, Daltonian, JMK, NiamC, Denny, and Zaradi. I still miss them all. They were all respected and influential members here, in their own way.

Shouts out to everyone who posted on this thread. Shouts out to anyone who takes the time to READ and vote on debates. Shouts out to Airmax for being a great moderator. Shouts out to bsh1 for being a president who cares about this website.

Shout out to everyone who I've had dialog with on here and loud shout outs to every youngsta who accepts me as JoMomma (not your mom - just a middle ages social misfit who needs a venue of dialog and expression that is unavailable to me in a broad spectrum in face to face life.)

Shout out to Double_R - for his informative and humorous approach when debating. Shouts out to DanneJeRusse for helping me on the flat earth thread when I thought I was gonna fall off the edge (pun intended)
