    It was just recommended to me by G to make a thread like this, pertaining to my recent suggestion, so I thought that I'd go ahead and do it. I'm sorry if I leave any of you wonderful people out. Where to begin...

    If you don't mind me saying, I think that you're legit one of the coolest admins I've seen on a forum, and I really love everything that you've put in place here. You really make an effort to make LV as great as possible, and I love that. Here's to future encounters!

    First off, just let me say that you're the GOD OF ART MY WORD TALENT MAN. You are seriously one of my favorite people on here so far, and I've enjoyed chatting about Fates and just about anything over on Discord. You're one of the nicest people I've met on here so far, and I look forward to more conversations.

    All praise our Lord and Savior Danktuary! You were one of the people who made an effort to get to know me when I was a wee little newbie (still kinda am). You're extremely smart, cool, talented, fun, and funny, and I love it when we meet on the Discord chat. May you code things that are good! (What a way to end a rant)

    Although our meetings are few in number, you have left an impact on me for who you are as a person and how kind and funny you are. Although I haven't been here very long, I've been here long enough where I can say that I believe that you were an amazing choice for an admin. Although, I won't forgive you for this: http://lakevalor.net/topic/13182-hay-steff-n00bz/

    You've been away for most of the time I've been member, but that's okay, because in the short time you've been here since I joined, I've been able to see what type of person you are, and I like what you do for LV, and I love how you treat people. Also, you have naked pixels of all the staff :hello:
    I like you. A lot. You're funny, creative, and frankly, quite mad, which is why I like you. You are probably one of the most critical thinkers on LV and can view things from many perspectives, which is why I like you. I haven't stated this, but I've looked up to you since I joined, and I love just about everything you do. #NO1STALKER

    Blost! I remember that you were one of the first people who welcomed me to LV, and you've been a great friend ever since. We did the anime challenge together, we have posted in many of the same threads, and have had plenty of good conversations. If you ever have more animu suggestions, let me know m8. (inb4 "don't say m8" comment)

    Pari! You've only been active for a couple weeks during my time, but you've sure become one of my fav people quickly. You're so quirky, fun, and unpredictable, while treating others with a lot of respect. In a nutshell, you're great! #freepari2k16

    I've enjoyed our Fates conversations over on Discords, and your posts in the Video Games forum. You're one of the nicest members on LV, and I love chatting with you. See ya round, and welcome to adulthood, m8!

    I have to mention you, definitely. May I just say that in all 2 months that I've been here, I haven't had near as much fun anywhere as doing the 29 Days of Anime. I got to bond closer with other members while watching new anime and participating in great challenges. I thank you for bringing me such an awesome event Shiro. Also, you sound like my manager. ;)

    You and your soap soup you nub noob scrubbity noob. JK Bio, I like you a lot, and would call you one of my best friends on here so far, easily. You've been welcoming and patient with me, which says a lot because I'm a twerp. Keep making more topics, noob.

    Hey m8! You! Yes you! You have been one of my best friends from the beginning, and have never heard an unkind word from your mouth (or fingers, as this is the internet). I look forward to doing a trombone/tenor sax combination sometime in the future!

    Morgle! My fellow Social Crew partner in crime! You've been one of my favorite members on here during my time, as you've been active, friendly, and a great friend to me. Here's to making more awesome Twitter posts!

    @[member="Zero Sifr"]
    You're a great guy with a lot of helpful insights. I've learned quite a bit from you during my time here, and I'm always interested to learn more about you. You stood out to me so much since the beginning, so I nominated you for Motm, and you became Motm! You're a cool dude, Zero, don't know what else to say.

    Nerdbucket! Jk, I'm glad that you can be so patient with an annoying idiot such as I. I've enjoyed talking with you over on Discord, Francis. Anyways, see ya around! (inb4 Aura hurts me)

    I've considered calling off our marriage a couple times because of all of your other significant others, but I think that I'll keep it going, because I like you. I love trying to beat you in that useless thread in the Game Corner where there never actually is a winner. We will overcome the staff someday!

    You're a neat dude, and I like you, could be as simple as that, but no. I've enjoyed seeing you around LV, and how much you like posting and being active. You're a neat dude, but I'd love to see you at the Discord chat sometime, you should stop by :)

    Sachi! You're my anime buddy, btw. You're the only member on LV that I've actually played any games with, and I had a ton of fun doing it. You are super cool, and I can't wait for our trumpet/tenor sax collaboration!

    You two were the first people that chatted with me on LV, and truly made me feel welcome. If I had anybody to thank for keeping me here as an active posting member at the start, it was you two. I enjoyed our early PMs, and we should totally continue them sometime!

    Plora Brears! I enjoyed messing around in the Game Corner with you all the time when I first became a member, and I now enjoy meeting up with you on Discord and talking about Fates. You're super funny and friendly, and I just hope you know that you're still one of my besties.

    You. Hmph. Eclipse, you truly are one of a kind. There are no two line posts from you. You're easily one of the smartest people on LV, if not the smartest. You have shared insight after insight that I wouldn't have thought about myself, and your sarcasm is almost second to none. Looking forward to more interactions and learning experiences.

    @[member="Bionic Puppy"]
    Hey Bio! You were one of the most friendly people here when I joined early, and you stood out to me a lot as a quality member. I deeply enjoyed our tournament battle (although I got crushed), but we haven't talked for a while, we should totes catch up on Discord sometime!

    Cay, you're a meme. But really, you're pretty cool and mature, especially for your age. You're a goofball, and I love it. I look forward to more time on Discord!

    Not only is your name super clever (I literally called Houndoom "Doomhound" the other day), but I think your interests align with mine more than any other member on LV. Fire Emblem, Major League American sports, Pokémon, those are three of my top things right there. You're pretty cool, and I hope to see you on Discord soon!

    @[member="Kuroshi Heki"]
    Although we met just a couple of days ago (I don't know if it's really been that long), we've already had a super long chat, and I love your forum. You're chill, and extremely personable. I'm excited to get to know you and the rest of your community.

    Dang, that took like 50 minutes. Sorry if I missed anybody, just know that I love you all *_*.

    It's actually snark. I don't utilise sarcasm.

    In the spirit of the moment, I suppose I shall add in a list of my own. Due to how I analyse people and their qualities, my list will probably be noticeably smaller than most, but that in no way should diminish the impact. I shall sort my list alphabetically.
    And, for ease of browsing, I'll section them off by spoiler tags as well. It adds suspense that way.

    *-G (i.e. includes names that do not start with a letter):
    I've loved your takes on things, ranging from the simple and vapid to the intricate and exciting. I have assigned a noticeable weight to words to the point that, even from while I was a fledgling here, when you spoke, I listened. A calm voice of reason that beneath that hid a myriad mind of a tricky yet flourishing path of life walked, and took the time to add your insights to my own - from my perspective, you are that.

    I remember in the early days, when I relied heavily on my Q&A thread (I still do, though not as often as then), I would get very little business, but you were always very consistent about it. It was such a small gesture, but it was still nice to check back and see, oh, Azure posted again. Wonderful, I get to stretch my mind again. I suppose my Q&A career wouldn't be nearly as large were it not for you, so I thank you for your time then and now.

    This entry is...a bit hard to describe. I believe it's because I noticed rather speedily that the things you do and say are heavily defined by your past experiences - a vantage point similar to how I act and react to others. I'm not sure if 'appreciation' is the most accurate word to describe it, but 'respect' would be. I've always respected you for that, how the steps you take are based on the steps you've taken, and are always very intentional.

    @[member="Doomhound"] @[member="Endrew Swiftwind"]
    You two share an entry only because of 2 reasons: first, the reason why I appreciate you both is essentially the same; and second, you two are both very close alphabetically. My blog was and still is the primary method (more so than the Q&A) by which I open my mind to the community (I know exactly what I'm going to write next, but school has gotten in the way very often as of late - sorry for any delays), and you are both very consistent followers and input-givers. To me, that's a sign that I'm doing something right and that people find my words and thoughts valuable enough to add bits and pieces of their own, to refine the thought into something greater. I know that when an entry pops up I'll see an entry from one or both of you in no time, and it's a small joy like that which encourages me to keep writing.

    H-P (but not Lovecraft):
    This is another one that dates back to the mists of time, back when I was struggling to find a niche for myself at the Lake. Via a series of missteps and chance encounters, ultimately I met her struggling with calculus homework, and offered my assistance. Interestingly, this had applications outside of the Lake as well - due to my career as a math tutor at a university, I would get a lot of people asking for help on problems, most of them calculus-related. In the process, I noticed that most of the problems I worked on with Lost, some of which I'd never seen before, came up when helping these students. I don't want to say that tutoring Lost was "practice for the real thing", but it did help me get into the examples very speedily. For that, I thank you.

    I think you're different than most on this list, largely because for almost all the others that I placed on here, I did so because of something about their minds and thoughts. You made it on because you're extremely approachable and amicable. One thing I've found that stands out is that, regardless of circumstances or even time of day, you're always smiling. Even at points in which you were slightly frustrated, you were still smiling, and enticed others to do so as well. However, your largest claim to fame for me is that our conversation has reached 421 comments and counting; let's see how far we can take that.

    Wow, I'm not sure what to think. I think we've only really crossed paths once or twice, but with each cross, the ensuing exchange was both lengthy and enlightening. I've missed conversations like those, as I don't find them very often. Perhaps I should try to track you down again. Either way, if you ever read this, know that I've appreciated the time we've talked and shared our ideas.

    Q-Z (oh, look, 20 points in Scrabble):
    I have no idea why I'm writing this. There are a number of reasons as to why you stand out, both to others and myself, but I feel most grateful for your patience, both with others and myself. You almost always have time to listen to people - in between you making fun of your close friends, but I digress - or if you might not have it, you make the time. That I've always seen as admirable, to take chances to stop, wait, and listen to what others have to say. While it may seem like such a small thing, it comes off as very generous to me.

    You ask the strangest and most complex questions I've ever seen out of anyone in the Q&A section, enough to really stretch the mind and make people think, so that no one can get away with flippant answers (at least, not easily). It has led to the point in which I know a question by you will require a substantial amount of time for thought, because of all of the numerous small factors that go into it. I always love chances to stretch my mind towards new areas and dimensions that I never have before - or at least expand my influence in dimensions I've already been - so your questions are always a welcome sight.

    I'm not sure if this applies as much now as it will one day in the future, but I've been following your Writing Prompt thread for some time now, and making notes to myself about which prompts will, one day for me or some other intrepid author, be great prompts for building short stories out of. I've crafted 3 so far with plans to make many more (I started a 4th many months ago, but life caught up and it remains unfinished), and I'm not sure where you get your ideas from, but wherever you do, they've been a tremendous aid and resource.

    There are only a handful of people that I can shout Dragonball Z Abridged quotes at, and you are one of them. Beyond that I have noticed that our (rather warped) senses of humour are very similar, and thus I feel that I can anticipate what you're about to say or do with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Nonetheless, there is never a dull moment when you're around - being both a good thing and a bad thing, depending on context.

    @[member="Zero Sifr"]
    There is always the joke about saving the best for last, but I believe you were the first that came to mind. You certainly have a phenomenal gift to weave fantastic stories and thoughts together from such a simple sentence, drawing from past encounters and experiences you've had to make your stance all the more credible. I wonder where I've heard that before. Your mind is one among a few I really try to pry and dissect, to get past all the layers of complexity, to see how you tick. Then again, all of your complexity is neatly organised, so it may not be as hard as I think.

    As the topic is concerned about members I appreciate, I wanted to keep my reasons to specific things - qualities I notice in a person that set them apart from the rest of the crowd, rather than just me appreciating them as I would any other friend or acquaintance. Thus, I'm very deliberate about how I constructed this list.

    Oh, wow! I have a whole list! Here it goes!

    @Eclipse: I put Eclipse first because first of all, when I initially joined Lake Valor, I only joined to keep in touch with my best friend, this very person. Even though we only know each other online, Eclipse is a really intelligent person who can find solutions to every problem. Very helpful and very kind, I know who to look out for when I feel sad or lonely.

    @8542Madness: I know that Madness has really amazing morals and is very intelligent. I believe that this amazing member looks at both sides of an argument and believes in what is right. Madness is someone that anybody can look up to, and is a very knowledgeable person who I respect a lot.

    @Almandine-G: Who can forget this person who leaves a great impression on Lake Valor? You are somebody I can count on and trust. You have always been somebody I could rely on when I was stuck somewhere or needed assistance.

    @Aura: Aura is a humble person who I can easily consider one of my best friends. Aura is kind and again, humble. Whenever I'm down, the name Aura always seems to cheer me up. Also, Aura is the only person who has found a purposeful use of my Pokémon TCG Redeemer codes.

    @BiohazardSr: Is somebody I can call my virtual brother. BiohazardSr always cheers me up when I am feeling down and is always great company. He's an unforgettable person that deserves the best, and he is also so kind and helpful, and never makes me feel bad due to my differences.

    @[member="Bionic Puppy"]: Very kind and friendly, Bionic Puppy is always someone who I find easy to talk to and very approachable! He also loves Kid Icarus: Uprising, so I find him awesome too.

    @Bloom: The first person I turn to when I need help. Bloom is so reliable, nice and honest! I found that she has never judged me, no matter how silly my questions were.

    @Deltheor: Your art is fantastic. In fact, you inspire me so much! The reason why I put up my gallery was to impress you because you influenced me to stop being lazy and put up my gallery. Thanks! You're really awesome too!

    @[member="Lord Vain"]: Thank you. Thank you so much for letting me claim my favourite character, Dark Pit. That was so nice of you, I literally started crying. You are so helpful, and the way that you call us ladies makes me feel... classy!

    @[member="Eru Iluvatar"]: Your concern for me made me feel like I was cared for (even though I am). You are so nice to talk to, you make my day feel better when I do speak to you. Your art is also unique, and I really appreciate it!

    @Sachi-Shimazu: One of the most fun people to talk to on here! Really, you understand my sensitiveness and how I may be rather weak, and despite being rather opposite of me, you are so kind, so awesome, so... happy-ifying!

    @Sanctuary: Mr. Cute, yes, you are one of the most awesome staff members ever! You and @[member="Satix"] make this place a more livable place, and never fail to make me laugh!

    @[member="Satix"]: You too, my friend. Don't feel left out. You created this site, and created this family! You should feel so proud of yourself!

    @Wizard: I am so glad you joined Lake Valor! There are certain people in our life that randomly cross our paths and turn out to be best friends and you're one of them. It's a miracle that you, out of all people. stumbled across Lake Valor! We appreciate you so much! You are very kind and honest and you're always willing to put a smile on my face.

    @YouHoney: You always make me laugh in the good way! Sure, you might have introduced me into the false proclamation that Finland is not real, but more than that, you are an enthusiastic person who enlightens our life.

    @TheBlazingInfernape: ...Where do I begin? You are a fantastic companion that treats me like a best friend. You are intelligent and kind, and you have a passion blazing through the sky!

    And last but not least... Please applaud the great @Lucy_Heartfilia_, my real world best friend! If I had nice things to say about you, I'd go on forever! Thank you for being a part of my life and being my best friends!

    Also @[member="Kecleon352"], you are my best friend ever! I'm so glad you are in my life. Thank you for great company! You are the kindest and nicest member on Lake Valor!

    Alrighty guess I'll have a go. Ahem

    @[member="shinygiratinaz"]. I mean you're one of the people who showed me this wonderful place, so of course you're in this list. Not to mention how much we talk, and the fact that you really are a huge help with my poem. Thanks!

    @[member="Sanctuary"]. Love you Sanc. It's never too awkward to ask you for help on the site. Not to mention it's fun talking to you

    @[member="8542Madness"] you're my #1 scrub. Though on a serious note you're the other person that showed me this place. That alone is a huge thanks. Not to mention you're very good at handling a situation, and I can depend on you to help out for most out of site stuff

    @[member="Almandine-G"] Luv u Red! It's always a pleasure talking to you. Whether it be silly or serious, I know I can have a nice talk with you

    @[member="Blast"] we may butt heads, but I know you still love me. And you know I love you too. Though I refuse to call you senpai

    @[member="Kaneki"] I don't quite know why I started giving you music, but here we are. You are a fun person to talk to. Always seeming happy and open

    @[member="Megarai111"] Hi mega! You're another person I look forward to seeing on discord. Always so talkative and active in it. I know you don't like the boops, but know it's because I care

    @[member="Wizard"] You have become a bit of a bro to me. I'm not sure how or why we click so well, but we do

    @[member="Zero Sifr"] I've always had a bit of respect towards you. At the size of your responses, your manners, and your general tone. It's very calming and nice

    @[member="✯Ho-OhLugia✯"] what started as a simple request for a signature turned into a strong friendship. I'll always care for you two my little sisters!

    @[member="Wyxamex"] while I'll never marry you, I'll still always care. You too are fun to talk to. I enjoy seeing you pop up on discord

    @[member="YouHoney"] you're a silly sausage you know that? Though you're still a cool dude. Tons of respect

    Alright that's everyone. Hope I didn't leave anyone out. Sorry if it seemed to be less cool near the end. I kinda got lazy

    EDIT: *Gasp* I forgot @[member="Vanillite"]. It's always a pleasure talking to you. You're a very sweet person, and an active listener.
