Community Apprecation Day: Thank You!

Hi there!

Happy Community Apprecation Day to all of you! Today, many of the fansite owners/community leaders have made posts and/or videos sharing their appreciation for this wonderful community. Today, I'm doing the same thing. Let me start off with saying that I appreciate each & every one of you for everything that you do to make this community a great place to be! Whether you're a content creator or just someone that plays the game that we all love, you do make a positive difference in this community. So thank you for being here with us! Now, I'm going to go into detail about what I appreciate about this community.

For years, I've come across many great people that did so much for the community. The community fansite owners - both Wizard101 and Pirate101 - have been a few of these great people. All of the Fansite Owners, official or not, put so much time and energy into their sites! With that, they all provide great information to their readers and bring all of the community together. Many of these sites have been here for years and still provide important information that helps improve our gameplay experience. There are also new sites that have joined that have also made a very positive difference in this awesome community. I would like to send a major thank you to all of the fansite owners in this community! Continue keeping up the great work & bringing this community together. If you're reading and would like to check out the official fansites (some of which have links to other great blogs in the community), feel free to click on the hyperlinks below!

One thing that is somewhat, but also not so much, new, are streamers! Twitch has been a great way to bring the community together. I'm sure many of you can agree with me that the streamers of the community (not including myself here) have made a positive impact on the community. How so? Well, they are able to get many in the community together for various events - whether its PvP or even questing together. I would like to thank ALL of the streamers in this community for doing what you can to bring this community together through your channels. I can say right now that I've had many great memories - such as the one above when we were at one of Heather&Val's streams from 2017. This last-minute event made it to one of my all-time favorite memories in this community. Heather, Tara, AwesomeTheSauce, and many other streamers have also supported just-starting content creators throughout the community. That is greatly appreciated. I hope the streaming community continues to grow and all streamers continue to join together to make a larger positive difference in this community than has already been made. It's definitely possible! 

One last thing I'd like to say is that I lost track of this appreciation for this community over the years. That's something I never thought would happen. It wasn't until recently that I was able to see that I do appreciate the things that everyone does for this community. I've had my fair share of regretful moments in this community. I've said many regretful things, especially over the past few years. But despite that, I still appreciate what all of you do - content creator or not. My hope is that one day we can all join together to make this community the best place it can be. We can still have our disagreements, except you better not ever say that you hate vanilla ice cream. Then, we might have an issue. 😂 Overall, I want to say that every single last person has a place in this community. Thank you all so much for reading. And Happy 11th Birthday to Wizard101. 💗
