Kisses and Kudos for the Mods
« on: Fri, Feb 12, 2010, 03:32 PM »
Ok, this is the second day in a row I feel like I need to post something.
I just want to thank the admins on the board for... well, being admins.
Seriously.
You ladies and gentlemen deal will all the irrational emotional squee that accompanies fandom with grace, patience and good humor.
There is so little drama and bickering and backbiting here... it just needs to be acknowledged. :-*

I visit other sites, and those that are free-for-all anarchy always seem to be taken over by trolls.
This is amusing for about 5 seconds, in the car-accident rubbernecking sort of way, and then it's just... unbearable.
 
I am "stuck" on this board because people are pleasant, mature and articulate.
("Stuck" in the marketing-speak of "stickiness of websites" for return views, this is a very desirable quality)

But I'm reading "Will the Vampire People Please leave the Lobby? True Adventures in Cult Fandom" by Alyson Beatrice right now. (Which is a snarky, smart collections of essays about her life and times in "Buffy" fandom. I hate Buffy, but I love this book.)
She has serveral essays about netequiette and board behavior, and it just makes me have to say
THANK YOU VINX!!!

(there was no "we love our mods" thread, so I had to start one.)
Kthxbye!

(thanks to the original artist)

what a great post & I wish I'd thought to do it!
It's very true; we shouldn't take VX & its mods for granted.  (I'm sure it's tough work juggling all the madness.)
The mood here is usually happy & serene...& if it isn't, most of us never know!

Congrats for keeping us rockin' & rollin' with grace & humor!
love you all!

Wow, noise_chick, that's really such a nice thing to say of you! Thank you so much! :hugs It makes me so happy to know that the environment we created is so much valued and appreciated; I too feel very warm and fuzzy and all smiley right now. Thank you! :happykiss

This board can only be as good as the people inhabiting it, and I dare say we've gathered the greatest bunch of people imaginable. So, thanks to you users for sticking with us, and of course to all the staffers who help keep this place running! :hug

Ps: I need to read that book. *lol*
