Appreciation thread

I am a member of many sites both horse and non-horse. I have witnessed several things here in the last short while and when I joined this site was much different to what it is now. There are places on this site I have no interest in but I do like the diversity that this site offers.

Running a site like this is not easy. I have several of my own sites I own and admin on and know full well the hard work it takes to keep it running smoothly. With over 3000 members, differences of opinions will crop up and it is NOT easy for the admin and mods to take a middle road and appear fair. Topics that are "hot" will tend to get peoples passion up and allowing the information to flow without the personalities to interfer is not a job for the faint.

There are many good topics here and the fact that they remain that way for the most part is a credit to Mike the admin and all the mods...........evenOLD Farmpony...LOL

So lets post here and show our appreciation please.

I really appreciate It's one of the most supportive and friendliest sites that I've ever come across on the web.

Thank you admin and mods. Well done! I also want thank every member who is building or/and has built that great team spirit over here. You're wonderful people everyone.

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I appreciate the fact that when I was feeling really low one of the member from here introduced me to this forum.
I appreciate the fact that when I had a problem with someone Admin stepped in and helped me
I appreciate the fact that people around here avoid confrontation
I appreciate the fact that people around here join in with good knowledge in hand and talk about their life time experiences
I appreciate the fact that there is an Off topic section on this site and it is not only made for Horse lovers but for everyone in general
I appreciate the fact that the people here try their best to help each other and live like a family
I appreciate the fact that Admin has allowed me to start a technology thread which in return has an overwhelming popularity amongst users
I appereciate the fact that there are girls and boys section as sometimes we cannot talk about things which would be so generously made for girls (i.e. boys only talk ).

Although there are alot of appereciations which I would like to share but cannot due to limited time however I finalize my appereciation by

I appereciate the fact that Spyder has come up with the idea of appereciation which made me realize that I should appereciate little tiny things in life which can make a huge impact. Thank you Lord for everything you have done for me.

.... and for that I would like to thank You Spyder .

I want to hand this back to the community as well, We would not be able to keep this site as great as it is without the continued support and understanding of the best members on the web. Thank you to all of you as well!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
