Watch the Video!

Hello,

Thank you for visiting KarateForums.com.

Earlier this year, Heidi (ninjanurse) celebrated 10 years on staff here at KarateForums.com. At that time, we noted this amazing demonstration of longevity an announcement and plenty of praise.

But I had something else in mind and decided that I would tie it in with our 500,000 posts celebration. I had a couple of ideas and collaborated privately with the rest of the staff, settling on a physical award - a representation of our appreciation for Heidi that she could display wherever she wanted and be reminded of KarateForums.com and the time that she has spent here.

As I said back in June:

Quote:
We have had many great staff members over the years here, but none who have been involved with our team for this long. It is a very rare circumstance, not just for our community, not just for online communities have I have managed, but for any online community period. Very rare.

It is a testament to Heidi's dedicated service to this community and her efforts in holding up the standards that we have. You don't remain on board for as long as Heidi has without quality, consistency, strength of character, humility, humor and determination and that is what Heidi has demonstrated over the past 10 years.

There is a lot of things that any member can see. Her posts, both the number of them (5,543 - fourth among all members), and what she contributes through them. But what you may not see is what I've seen over the past 10 years, the things that happen behind the scenes.

Heidi has been a great supporter of this community and of me and I am grateful for that. You don't build something like this, you don't create an atmosphere like this, without people like Heidi, great team players who can help with the things that must be done to make it so. It doesn't just happen by itself.

Through her contributions here, I feel confident in saying that Heidi has helped thousands and thousands of people (maybe more). Directly with her posts, indirectly with her efforts in helping to foster a community where they would be welcome.

Thank you, Heidi. Thank you for being a great member of my team for so long, for supporting me and for being a friend. I appreciate you.

As such, on behalf of KarateForums.com, it is my pleasure to present Heidi with the award pictured below. It is already in her hands.



Thank you for reading (and watching).

Patrick
