I know some people feel they dont get the rep they deserve and think that they are underapriciated. So I decided to start this thread as a place where you can post about some people that have been real helpful to you.
I guess I will start:
RIDE: The first time I came here I posted a question and right away he helped me out and I wanted to say thankyou for that.
There were others like MacHeadCase, ToddG, KoDorSean, and Baggss and not directly to me, but pulse-8 and mathogre have from what I have seen stuck with people to help them out with there problems. So thanks again to all of you!!

cool thread idea!

My vote would be Pulse-8 and MacHeadCase. Both have bent over backwards to help me!

Pulse and MHC always seem to be right on top of most of my queries... if not, they point me in the right direction. Having ALL of you, truly made the switch for me ideal. Honestly, I've never used forums before, now I'm involved in about 7 of them, but I'm in here more than anywhere else... Thanks, and my son will be in here soon the end of July (I've decided he needs to start learning mac EARLY, so I'm getting him a macbook for his birthday July 22d)- unlike his stubborn father who stuck with MS and windows for 12 years!

Well, I can't really specify one person who helped me out. Why you wonder?

Well because this Forum as a whole with all its amazing members guided me threw the whole Switch wheather it be directly or indirectly. So it will be a long list for me to type and u to read ;D but all you people of the M-F are awesome and I am extremely happy to be a member of M-F :D

There are some great folk here even before I switched I came here for advice. A lot of subjects are beyond me . However what a great way to learn. As Pulse has said in an earlier thread it's nice to give back to the community and not just take

Aww you're such sweeties! Thank you all.

KoDor, mac57, Mathogre, Stretch, Sherman, cwa, Browny, DB, eric, xstep, Kash, schweb, nuke, johntalin (where are nuke and Taleen, anyway?) - and I could go on and on here - are awesome too.

No way that only one or two people can help out all 14,000 members here and the hundreds of daily posts!

So a big round of applause to each and everyone of you in M-F!

I'm always interested to hear what guys like Zoolook, Eric, iRye, Moss918, bobtomay, dtownley1, yogi, ambivalent(i know she's a girl), leecho etc. have to say. They may not have the green dots or the post count(apart from eric) but I always get something out of their posts whether it's a laugh or a tip.

I've received so much help from MHC, Pulse-8, KoDorSean, ToddG, Stretch, and the list could go on and on.

Boils down to this being the best forum on the net (I've said that before but it bears repeating).

Love ya all...;D

I'm trying to think of everyone who makes this a great place, and I'm sure I won't remember to list everyone, but here's a partial list in no particular order:
MHC, eric, ToddG, Aptmunich, iKitten, RIDE, baggss, cwa107, Netty4Mac, iRye, leecho, ambivalent, BenjaminDaines, skye, Pulse-8, KoDorSean, schweb, todd51, johntalin, Carol247, DB... and it just keeps going, and going, and going...

Great thread gnfrsu! The Pulse/MHC thread was very appropriate but it's the community as a whole that makes this place what it is- wether you just turn up now and then or have the time to make this a second home. So, many thanks to you all (I feel obliged to say "as a unit"...) for making this the 1st place I check when surfing. ;D

Yes I agree I think rep is in line for gnrfsu for starting this thread!
