I’m so honored


Daily Prompt: I’d Like to Thank My Cats

by michelle w. on August 27, 2013

You are receiving an award –- either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored, and what would you say in your acceptance speech?


I joined a car enthusiast forum back in 2010. A bunch of us enjoyed chatting about random nothings but it would end up spamming other people’s threads. I then made an inquiry about a chat room:

 Chat room
for when we don’t feel like working

I know there’s a Lounge section but what about a ‘chat’ section where we can just chat about random nothings E.g. a place where everyone can discuss different types of fast food SmileAnd The Boss wont say

The Boss wrote:
Three pages full of nothingness say no

Just a thought.

 After many members enthusiastically agreed a mod said:

Are you bored? chill out and chat 🙂

By definition a chat room is an online forum where live keyboard conversations (usually organized around a specific topic) with other people occur

I have a few points that have lead me to believe a chat room could possibly be useful and beneficial for this specific site. 
• Our NOC members have established and also developing relationships with each other- this thread could help especially new members to get to know all our team mates, in a less prescribed way. 
• When there is a topic that you’d like to discuss or debate about (the lounge is a good place to start a new thread but see point below for example) 
• Instead of hi-jacking somebody else’s thread or straying ‘off topic’ you could “take it to the chat room” 
• Some of our members sometimes have time to spare and need entertainment. 

So with the permission of my esteemed moderators; I hereby start this new thread with the hopes of providing a place of refuge for our fellow members to chill out and chat.

 Many posts later on the Chat Room thread, the mod sent me a private message, confirming that he had made my thread a sticky:

I was new to forums and was surprised that I was able to make such an impact on the website. Needless to say I was very proud and certainly enjoyed basking in my self-made glory 🙂

This was my reaction:

Wow this is such an honor; First of all, I’d like to thank my parents for raising me to believe in myself. My friends and family for all the support. 
And to each and every person who made the effort to at least make one comment here, it’s because of you that we’ve reached this mile stone so quickly. 
Finally I’d like to take this opportunity to encourage all the people out there- Please, don’t be shy, just say hi. 


I Thank You.
