Thank you guys.

Hey guys, what's up? It's me, Zephyr.

Foxy and Grey have told us to throw together a quick video or something demonstrating our thanks
to you guys for taking the time out of your day to be a part of this commmunity.

Now to be honest, I've never been a strong orator, nor have I ever been good at handling my own rhetoric,
an excellent example being how I probably used both of those words completely wrong.

But that's not the point, really. It's the thought that counts, so here goes nothing:

I joined this site, roughly a year ago, the details are a bit foggy still as to whether it was in May, or June,
but remembering such a detail didn't matter to me so, y'know.
Anyway, at the time, it was still a very small site. It was the kind of place you heard from somebody
who heard from another guy who heard from yet another guy.

To be blunt, my first impression wasn't really all that special. At the time, I was rather addicted
to Minecraft, (which I am again, by the way), and was really just interested in listening to Brony
music in general as I was new to the fandom.

However, after a week or so of screwing around with digital legos and screaming AEIOU into the chat,
I actually began to grow more fond of the community that was within this chat. I'd spend a little
more time every day on this chat, and occasionally we would RP like a bunch of stooges.
It's here where I became quick friends with a few of the DJs, mainly Foxy, and Flash.
And R too, since he -was- a DJ at one point in time.

Time moved on, and I became friends with a good majority of the rest of the staff, and before I knew it
I had become one of them myself.

Back then, I thought being on the staff was going to be a bunch of fun and games, I'd get to goof
around with my friends, it'd be great right?

Well to be honest, it was at first, and it was a blast.
But then well, I don't need to explain the rest, most of you know what happened;

After that, being a staff member was a lot more... stressful, so to speak.
There was always something that needed fixing and some problem that wouldn't just go away.

During all of this strife, I came to appreciate the site for more than being just a hub where I get to
hang out with a bunch of my pals.

I learned to appreciate the people who made this site a possiblity, you guys; the users.

So I want to extend my thanks out to every single one of you who make this place a possiblilty,
because without you, well, I'd probably be dicking around at my computer doing something else
entirely, but wasting my life in the process nonetheless.

While I'm at it, I'd like to give a special shoutout to a few people who really deserve mention around
the site.

I'd like to shoutout first, everybody, not in a way so that "oh everybody gets one", but because
you all have to deal with me.

Next, I'd like to give a shoutout to Harley, the EP community welcome wagon. Her quirkiness can
easily bring a smile to someone who's having the worst of days, and I can attest to this firsthand.

I'd like to shoutout Yami and Cloudy for helping me with certain matters even when times seem bleak.

And last, but certainly not least, I want to give a special shoutout to our Admins, Foxytail and
Grey Nightmare.
You guys do a tremendous job around the site, and despite the crap that we've all put up with
I still look up to you guys for answers in times of need. You guys may catch a lot of flak at times,
but I just want you guys to know that me, and everybody else appreciate everything you do, without
you two, none of this would be a reality and I am truly thankful for it.

Anyway, that's all from me, Cya guys!

God my voice sounds AWFUL, haha.
Oh well.

    Your voice isn't awful. You just lack a bit of articulation. And you talk too fast sometimes.

    But that's not the kind of comment you're expecting from everyone, is it?

    I actually appreciate you guys actually making youtube videos as a message to us. This shows exactly how much you care. I've been on forums where the staff doesn't even talk to the community other than messages on updates and other technical mumbo jumbo no one cares about. Heck, theres forums where they don't even do that much.

    I like it when i get responses to complaints or suggestions from you guys. If i remember correctly, there were people here a while ago saying you weren't active enough in the community, well i say they're wrong. You might not always post on the forums as much as regular members, but if they bother to look around, they'd know you're always there where you're needed and you're never more than a click away when you're not posting on the forums.

    i also don't know of any other forum that hosts a livestream, and actually does a live skype chat with the community every other week, among other planned events.

    Therefore, i give one big huzzah back to all of you.

    Yeah haha, sorry about talking so fast, I was on a very short time limit to get this made.

    > Listens to Foxy's Community Post Video and cries from the shout out
    > Finishes crying
    > Comes here and listens to your video
    > Cries again

    All arrow silliness aside, Zephyr... I love you so much. You were one of the first people I got to be very close with, to be friends with and to be down right crazy with. ._. That simple shout out makes me feel so special, makes me feel... I don't know... it makes me feel like I'm not the nuisance I think I sound like. Strange, I know. Crazy, uppity Harley actually feels like she's annoys the world. Thank you - and thank Foxy - for showing me that's not the case. It means more then you could possibly imagine. <3
