Perhaps I'd fill that myself too. 1) The best thread of 2009 - why just that thread?
>>I say the same as I did in the previous year - `»Thread of a million replys«´ AKA Random Chat. Since there you can share all your random thoughts. 2) The most touching Horseforum.com thing in 2009? It can be a thread, just a separate comment, picture, video, signature, username - whatever you feel touched you on that forum in 2009. Why just that thing?
>>I don't have a recollection of any special thing. But I bet it was a picture of some cute animal or a some kind of "Cinderella story" topic or some very supportive and brave comment for something. 3) The most funniest Horseforum.com thing in 2009?
>>I think some of the jokes. I like especially horse related ones. For example "Top 10 Exercises for the Equestrian" was good since it was so apposite
. 4) The User(s) of 2009? - Do you especially remember some of the users?
>>Yes I do. For example Kentucky, Vidaloco, JDI, M2G, Savvylover, Regal Charm (who could win The Charmer of Horseforum.com with a Great Sense of Humor prize
) PiggyPablo, xLaurenOscarx, IlovemyPhillip, ridingismylife, Sissimut-icehestar... the list keeps going on. Especially those ones who chat a lot in the chat room + some others. 5) Did you make any friends via Horseforum in 2009? In cyber life or did you even meet in real life?
>>I've made some cyber friends with who I've even become friends on Facebook. Unluckily most of you still live so far away that I think I'll never meet you IRL
. I think perhaps one of the users live close enough so I'd even think to meet her some day. 6) Do you think something changed on Horseforum during 2009? Did you like it or was it something not so nice?
>>At least we got some new rules. In the end of the year we got the rule about net speak and then there have been discussions about the group spirit of HF.com and how it had been changed. Personally I haven't really noticed that (perhaps the atmosphere had been slightly more grumpy very occasionally). Lets see how the situation will develop before I can say if I think these changes are good or bad... 7) Any wishes for 2010 regarding Horseforum?
>>Keep the general atmosphere as supportive & friendly as it has been during the 2009 and earlier! 9) Anything to say to our wonderful Administrator or the group of Moderators?
>>I want to thank you for a great job: you've managed to keep this forum so clean and cozy that it's always nice to log in here.
and then something out of Horseforum: 10) The most remarkable changes in your life during 2009?
>>There haven't actually been anything really remarkable. Perhaps the most remarkable things in my life during 2009 were the psychotherapy that I started in the very early 2009, the fact that the riding stable where I rode at around 7½ years disbanded in the summer and I had to change the stable and that I finally managed to take the initiative with the guy who I had quietly adored for a long time. It failed but at least I dared to do it and know now. 11) Did you make (or do you plan to make) any New Year's resolution? What kind of resolutions?
>>No I don't (didn't).
