    I know it is going to sound strange coming from a Mod...

    But I feel that Fex, Emergence, Baal, and Ublug deserve a round of applause for fostering, nurturing, and most importantly starting this community. I know it is great because of the people we have here, the diversity, but if not for them, where would we be? I know for at least myself, I would have probably left the game a long time ago and started something new. This community is what keeps me playing the game. So at least from me, thanks guys!

    I don't think it's strange at all. You said it best really.

    Thanks to everyone specially Fex, Emergence, Baal and Ublug.

    I agree on the praise for this site. It's top notch by any standards. And actually, I'd like to take it further and give all the mods credit for really turning around these forums. For the first couple of months, I really avoided them because there seemed to be a lot of troll action. Everyone here has done a great job encouraging a real sense of community spirit and helpfulness that didn't exist before. Personally, I think you've all contributed to this, and I look forward to visiting here on a daily basis.

    My thanks.

    Here here! Fex, Emergence, Baal, and Ublug have done a wonderful job on the site and wiki. I can think of no greater people for ruling the world :p

    Wow thank you everyone! I did not have internet today so I am just seeing this for the first time, and it made my day. I am beyond glad to know that this site is so well received. When Fex and I started this site, we did it with the same feelings of community that you all have for each other even though we are separated by 10,000 miles. This is what we really hoped would occur. One of the things we discovered after playing Demon's Souls was the game attracted and brought together like minds, and if a thriving community could be facilitated with those individuals at its foundation then something special could take place. We always hoped to create a place where people could come, chat, make friends and transcend the gap of distance. To see that this spirit transferred is so *** cool.

    We are so lucky to have the community of folks that we do have here. I absolutely love "coming to work" here, hanging in the forums, working on the wiki, and watching the chat. It is a ton of fun, and it's all the reward I need. You are all outstanding individuals and a pleasure to be around. This game is still in its infancy so think of how much more there is to come as a community.

    And thank you Meridam, and the rest of the moderation team of Zechk, and d15-149. Your energy and efforts have encouraged community rather than suppressed it.

    Baal, and Ublug are indispensable and oft-overlooked as well. The things they do behind the scenes have been so vital towards ensuring this site looks fantastic, is well organized, and has valuable content. These are two tremendously talented individuals.

    And lastly Fex. Remember the kid in school who is just amazing at everything they do, even if they just picked it up for the first time? That's Fex, ridiculous ability, integrity and foresight. There are not enough superlatives so I will stop there!

    As for me, I'm just the dope lucky enough to get some credit! All I do is crack some jokes and keep it groovy...

    I'm not good at acceptance speeches :p

    I love the site and the community and I believe every user posting and editing has made this happen.

    We are as a community incredibly lucky to have attracted Wiki Master Ublug and Code Master Baal to our side, but also every other member that takes the lead on creating anything, be it our excellent mods (and chatango mod Serious!) Zakkia/J4/Dx, Acid/Blaine/WhKn or our very own Maneater Mildred: Thank you! Prostration

    Custom ranks are given with our most heartfelt kudos and we hope to continue to give out more happy (Yes I know the war leaders don't have theirs yet. wait on it)

    And Emergence... ok ok you can take the weekend off. Jeez u thought I wouldn't see through that?

    After having spent like literally 5-6 years in the FF11 community and forums, I have to say in my short time around here you all are beyond awesome. I just love this community and glad to be apart of it, I only wish I could get my former guild members to join and play with them once more.

    Thank you so much. It it wasn't for this community and Fight Club I would've assumed every one online would be the same cheesy, obnoxious, cheating jerks.
    You're all so amazing, thank you for keeping my favourite game series interesting and fresh.

    The longest I ever been a member of a Forum was for around 11 + years (it was a Tomb Raider forum) but the only thing that bothered me was that it was so inactive at times. I bumped into this site in need of help and I'm thankful people are always posting around and answering to my questions when I need some help. Wonderful site, great team/members.

    Lots of love keep it up :-)

    I must say being one of the new kids on the block and having an understanding of what happens behind the scenes i must take my hat off to those involved.

    You have created a great environment and experience for new people wanting to understand this fantastic game and allow us to share our common passion of dying... over...and over ... and over again.

    But of course having a great community also requires you the reader/contributor being involved so thank you all for your posts, rants, questions & ideas !

    I have gotten to know a few people on here via online play as well and you are all a great bunch of people.
