600,000 Posts Celebration ~ Although the show is long over, we're still celebrating!



We should probably go back through this thread to find all of the previously discussed stuff.

My dedication has already been written. Almost forgot that it was and was about to go do another. So yes, going back and reviewing is important. I'm pretty much done with my graphics, though.

I can't believe, that we now hit 600k time and post counts just flew by, and online frineds became real live friends and online family I'm so glad to be a part of it and that this amazing show makes things like that happen and real

I'm happy to be a moderator of that wonderful board and have two of the best comods, Deborah and Denise I know and a lot of helpers when one of us isn't available like Vicki or Christine, who also make this board vivid and alive

It also makes me really happy to have found friends all over the world who keep in contact even with time differences it is possible to talk to each other in real time as much as possible and it makes us feel like the world is just a little closer together. especially when we try to find a time to watch something toggether in real time and we all put effort in finding the right time, which means for some of us to stay or get up late or early

We really are a great team so off to the next 100k Team-QaF

without us being together this celebation wouldn't be possible

I am proud to say that I, along with my fellow posters are keeping this board going with the same genuine love and dedication that has always existed for many people over the years. And 600k is a true indication of the pull QAF continues to have on our hearts, as fans, as humans in general.

Special thanks to: Claudia, Deborah, Daggi, Fiona, and Vicki for keeping the ball rolling. Also want to thank the countless others who've posted with us in the past who are no longer regulars on our board for contributing all those years. You've helped push us along in the right direction more times than we can all name, and that has kept us up and running for so long.

It is honor to be here and I'm so happy I found this place so I, too, could keep the show's legacy alive.

When I found this show in 2013, I really needed a place to talk about the overwhelming, roller coaster of emotions that it evoked in me. At that time we were approaching 325K posts. I never imagined having so much to talk about and the friendships that have been formed as a result. I am truly thankful for Daggi, Denise, Fiona, Claudia, Vicki and all of the others who have come and gone over the years.

Congratulations to our small but mighty board on reaching 600,000 posts!

Well one of the things that came up were the QAF little videos on YouTube - I watched so many of them and thought I need to see this! I went and bought all 5 seasons in one shot and watched the whole thing in a week staying up all night and all day just watching this amazing show.

After my binge I had all these thoughts and feelings and ideas and I just needed someone to talk to about QAF so much. I searched again on the internet and tried a few different things to find people to talk to about the show and then I found and this forum for QAF. I so hoped that it was still current and that there were still people here I could talk to and there was!! I was so excited to find people still talking about this show and people who were so open and accepting and so wonderful!

Since then I have been on the forum almost every day and love talking to the wonderful people on here who are so open about their love of QAF and their lives and so welcoming and fantastic! I have loved being on here and being a part of this forum with these wonderful people. I have loved being able to talk about QAF and exploring the show so much in so many different ways and with so many different opinions and ideas all blending together in such a beautiful way. I'm happy to have been a small part of reaching the 600K and can't wait to keep going

Thank you to you all for your acceptance and support and inclusion in this great place

I am so proud to be a part of this board and not only to support the fellow moderators that moderate it but to be a part of the board that really shows that love clearly has no labels and celebrating the LGBT community with unconditional love and endless support. Temporary moderating this board isn't a job/assignment to me, It's a real pleasure. I will forever be a part of this board as a poster.

It took me a while to be a part of this board due to failing watching the QAF seasons here in the UK. Thanks to this board, I have a wonderful insight on how the characters are portrayed, the wonderful storylines, the fabulous cast and that's only just the start of it. I haven't even scratched the surface, I don't think
You may say, how can you love a show that you've never watched much of? Well, this is why this board is so fantastic because it opens and scoops you up, enticing and giving you much excitement and anticipation to watch.
I know that I will grow to genuinely love the show even more when I do finally watch the seasons.

All four corners of this board is filled with love, optimism, courage, respect and sheer adoration for each other, the show, the cast, the LGBT community and nestled in between are three outstanding moderators. I don't think you can get any better than that.

I want to thank from the bottom of my heart.

Deborah~ You fill this board with joy. I couldn't imagine this board without you and you have the magic touch, those magic hands has made this board what it is today which is a big success. Special lady indeed. Thank you.

Daggi ~ Wonderful addition to this board, a wonderful moderator. You give everything and more here and you do it so effortlessly. The genuine love that you have for this show makes me smile. LIke Deborah, you work this board amazingly well!

Denise ~ This lady leaves sparkle in every thread that she posts in. You can't help but smile when she is around because she gives great vibes. You are amazing for this board. I can't wait to post more with this lovely lady.

Fiona ~ AKA our Posting Machine. You are a special asset to this board with your dedication and posting skills. We are never letting you go, lady! Thank you for all what you have contributed.

To everyone else that has kindly made the time and effort, thank you and I wish to see you around posting or even if you are just lurking.
I come here whenever I am feeling down mostly because the spirit and vibe I feel on this board means a lot to me.

So from the bottom of my heart, thank you!

So far, we've came up with some titles, a thread name, and few graphics. We were originally going to have it up somewhere in the first week of March, but as always, real life stepped in and put a real damper on things... so we've had to postpone it a little. I'm sure you can add some items, and it would be most appreciated., Lisa Besides, the exact anniversary of our board is not exact, as it was to our knowledge, opened some time between March and May.

It looks like we'll be celebrating by the time it's our 16 year anniversary on 600K in 16 years.

I will make some icons and attempt some graphics tomorrow! I haven't done too much with my Photoshop these days, so i'm not sure what I'll come up with ...but I'll try!
