Wanting--no, needing--to give credit where credit is long overdue.

You run a damn fine site here, Vekseid.  I think most of us felt the sting of the loss of E even for the better part of a day.  It is more than just a place to post and share stories.  It is a community, in the strongest sense of the word.  There are far, far too many people here I have grown fond of and can call friends just in the brief 6+ months of time I've been proud to call myself a member.  I'm not sure just how many members feel like me, but I can bet 95%+ do.  For me, personally, it is more than friendship and creativity, too.  I can safely claim that E has helped in other aspects of my life, as well.  I've suffered from severe clinical depression for years, and while I started taking medication for it less than a year ago--I didn't even realize I was that depressed; I thought it was simply how life was--the camaraderie and sharing and simple joy that goes on here is indispensable to me.  You're the first thing I check in the morning on my laptop, and the last thing I see on it when I log out every night.

Vive le E...and vive le Vekseid!

I can only echo the sentiment, Hannibal. E is my lifeline to friendships and a sense of community. There is no place else I feel quite as safe as I do here among people that shore me up when I am down and enrich my life in ways they can't imagine. This wouldn't exist without our dear and wonderful exemplar.

Thank you Vekseid. ♥

So much credit is overdue, it's practically overflowing.

Thank you Vekseid. Thank you so much. This place, it is truly like a home to me. I have met so many wonderful and sweet people on here, and so many amazing writing partners as well. You've given us a place to write, meet, greet, laugh, socialize, make lifelong friendships, and so much more.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You deserve a nice big rest and some relaxation. <3
