Hi all!

As part of our post-teams debrief we were all struck by the community spirit shown by so many of you during the Teams event. The hard work you put in, the connections made and, at times, the best elements of this community on full display.

Over the past month we have been secretly stalking every post within this forum, watching your every move, every breath... nah, I'm kidding! We've been keeping an eye out as we've gone through the month at things that are being posted and said as we usually do as moderators. However, this time we've been looking for the amazing.

We have decided to start giving out a small set of "Lounge Community" awards. We will have three categories each month:

Best Contribution
Best Thread
Best Poster

Each in turn are there to reflect a particular type of contribution to our community that we'd like to stand up and recognise. Contribution recognises an individual post that has been made. Thread highlights a non-mod thread that is fit for being a 'thread of the year' nominee. Poster is for the person we think has made the biggest contribution to our community this month.

This is not to say that some people or posts or topics are valued more than others. No, no, no. We thank each and every one of you for the posts and topics you've made throughout May, and before, here in the Lounge. Every contribution is valued and adds to our community. We wanted to take a moment to highlight our favourite moments, ones that made us laugh/smile/cry, and give recognition to those going above and beyond for our community in this past month. This will be a monthly thing, we hope! We have no intention of this being a one-off. By the end we hope to have a collection of posts and threads that would make a fitting long-list for the year end awards.

They have been decided, by majority vote, by the Lounge Moderators from a series of posts and moments that we've been keeping track of throughout the month.

So without further ado:

● May 2017 Contribution award goes to... Jonjo!
for: the following opening post in his "Friends On The Internet" thread:

QUOTE
So the phrase of stuff like "Don't take it so personal, it's just someone you're likely to never meet" have been said on this forum a few times in the past (although it does seem to be a distant memory as of now as I've not seen it said for a while tbh), but my point is, I think this phrase is really taken for granted.

The recent events with them happening and hitting so close to home (and having a mass conversation with various people from this forum), and feeling so much emotion despite not having any direct connections personally, it made me realise that some members of this forum, despite never meeting them, are actually more than "friends on the internet". Speaking to Joe about his trouble of not knowing whether his friend was ok or not, really hit me the most. I literally worried for him when he told me, like we had regular meet ups and saw each other in person etc.. he wasn't just "someone from the internet", I realised I actually have more interaction with him, than I do with some people I see most days who I consider to be my friends. And obviously knowing that it was a Buzzjack-friendly artists concert, in the popular city of Manchester, really got to me. Knowing the likes of Bal, Jay, Rob (who I speak to on a regular basis in a group chat) probably would've been there had she not done Birmingham or something (Rob was very almost there), I was a mess just thinking about that, even though I knew they weren't there.

My heart breaks for each one of you who has been personally affected by this in any way shape or form. It really does.

It's made me realise that some people on this site are so much more than just "friends on the internet". You have impacted my life a lot more than some of you probably realise. You guys are my escape. It's so nice to just geek out about things and not be judged for doing so and the fact that I have made some truly great friendships in my 10 years of being here, I can't thank you all enough. I genuinely don't know what I'd do without this site and the people on it.

Sorry if this is a bit much or whatever, but I just wanted to get this off my chest and I think we could all use a little pick me up <3 I truly believe this site is the best thing to happen to my life and I for one consider a lot of you to be more than "internet friends".

Much love wub.gif


We found this opening post to be very touching. It was memorable in the best possible way and really made the thread what it was. Congrats Jonjo, you got the thread off to such a strong start by reminding us just how fabulous and important our community is in such a heartfelt way!

● May 2017 Thread award goes to... 'Quick Smile Thread' by Cucumberella!

We felt that this thread had wonderful intentions in wanting to be a little forum boost following recent tragic events in the world, such as the Manchester incident. It provided smiles and laughs in a difficult time which was a joy to witness, congrats Leww!

● Poster of May 2017 is... Cucumberella/Leww!

A few different names were brought up but in the end it had to be Leww with the quality threads he brought to the table this month! 'Quick Smile Thread', 'Posting styles, personalities and their influence', 'What Buzzjacker(s) will be famous and why?' and 'What piece of art describes you?' are amongst the threads that Leww created in The Lounge in May. We applaud this enthusiasm of creating all these new topics (that were all worth a read) in the space of a month.

Thank you everyone for your posts and contributions this past month. We value them all. We look forward to sharing with you our highlights from June in a month's time!

When you contribute something worth contributing, you may get recognition. Now to make this less about you...

WELL DONE Lew, I felt you'd drifted over the past year but I've certainly noticed your presence here a lot more of late so it's totally deserved. Long may this continue. Jonjo as well is always an amazing presence on the forum and it's great to see him recognised.

Thanks Spadz heart.gif I just thought it could be a nice thing to do in here. The results thread for teams put this idea in my head when there was so much support for all the work everyone had done. We really do appreciate our memberbase and the ideas that keep this place active.
