Well, when I started this obsessi-- I mean Hobby, of mine, my idea of a good board was a Soyo P4 board, running SDRAM, and a 1.6W chip.
Since that time, I have learned almost everything I learned, right here!! I'd like to thank Skip, Joe, and the rest, just for starting this place.
I'd really like to thank Sam (SSS) for his monitoring of the Classifieds, as well as letting me bend his ear, over questions on being a good Moderator. Believe it or not, Moderating is one of the most difficult jobs on these Fora, and these guys don't get enough credit. Since I'm a Mod over at a (much) smaller Forum, I can really appreciate what they ALL do.
Finally, I'd like to thank EVERY member here, for making this place so pleasant, as well as informative!
It was great while it lasted, but my other home is gone.

I've been away from this site for months now, but felt an overwhelming urge to pop back and just wish all a "Merry Festive Season"
I also want to say "Thank you" to everyone whom I've interacted with (mostly in the "Cooling" section), for all the help, support and encouragement. It gave me the guts to improve my cooling and build my own ducts (major achievement for a non-DIY'er).
You people definitely rock and I hope this site continues to remain a super-useful source of excellent information, for years!

I would like to thank alot of people here.Countless actually.I learned everything I know here which is not that much compared to most of you.
One person that stuck out for me is icesaber.He doesnt post much but has tutored me on aim and taught me stuff that I could never have learned from just reading.Also turned out to be a good friend. My other long time buddy football has provided me with great conversation,info and friendship.
Also thanks to AVG for mentioning me You are very smart and have come a long way too.
David and JigPu have been an anormous help as well.Happy holidays and good luck in the new year everyone!

I'd like to go back about 4 years in time and thank senior member Tim. He has been gone a long time now, but he helped me with my cooling stumbling block and helped me eventually to reach my 1 gig goal (which was a huge accomplishment back then).
Like others have said, there are too many people to thank individually. Sometimes just reading someone else's post will give me an idea to try that works, so those people never know they helped me too. The exchange of knowledge here is wonderful.
Certainly, a couple of my buddies that really need special recognition are Mr B and SilverSinkSam. You can't imagine how much time and effort they have contributed to making us safe from all the evil little trolls lurking around.
Although as regular members, seniors, mods, and admins, we freely and willingly give out help and support because we love this hobby... it's always nice to get a personal "thank you". I noticed a special thanks directed to me earlier in this thread and it gave me a nice warm fuzzy feeling. I always appreciate it when I get a PM thanking me. Sometimes we take this great forum for granted and forget it's really the members that make it #1.2600K, Asus P8P67 Deluxe, 2X2GB G.Skill Pi PC3-2133, PC & Cooling 750W

The Admin for believing in me enough to make me a moderator.
Arkaine23 and Christoph for spending considerable amounts of time for helping me with Linux in the past and future.
RedHotMachine for being a fantastic friend

Id like to say a huge thank you to archilochus, for helping me out so many times with any problem iv ever had, cooling tips and guides, providing ideas and inspiration, being so patient when iv been impossibly dumb, and just generally being a great friend. Cheers bro, you're the man
Thanks also to clocker2 for inspiring me in my case modding, deathman20 for helping me get my p4 rig all set up and OC'd to the max, jabtek for helping me out and shipping to me in the uk, and rhino56 for all his help with setting up my prommie mach1.
Finally id also like to say thank you to Sentential, for helping me setup and fix my axp nf7s rig siren and overclocking problems, and more recently for so patiently explaining the entire ins and outs of a64's and how to OC them - i really didnt have a clue - helping me raise my OC from practically stock to just short of 2.6ghz atm....

Sentential gets a huge thanks from me for helping me out with my now determined dead mobo. He responded in about 1 min to my thread and then talked me through some steps on MSN.
I am voting that Sen be considered for a Senior member status on the forums. He has tons of stickies on this forum and is always willing to help people out in great detail whenver they need it.
Sen you rule ."Because of you my lady named fame, people spot me like nerves spot pain."
