No, thank YOU, AW Admin, for keeping AW running smoothly. And thanks to MacAllister for providing us not only an extraordinary resource, but a place where writers can thrive.

Thanks for creating this environment.

A school of hard-knocks, social interaction with people from all corners of the globe, and a place to play and learn. Encouragement, discouragement, bad puns and destroyer of pre-conceived notions. Well worth the frustration and growing pains, IMHO. :D

Rest assured the feelings are entirely mutual :)

This is the only writer's board I belong to, as it's well-run and moderated.

Thank you :)

Thanks to all of you for creating and maintaining this space. I am slowly getting my feet wet and so far have found everyone warm and welcoming. I've already picked up numerous tips and information that has helped me immensely, and look forward to learning and contributing more in 2017.

Happy New Year, AW! I'm very glad you're here.

This is the one place I gravitate to, for almost ten years now. I belong to a physical writing group, all older people who you would think would know a little bit about RYFW but no. There is always an undercurrent of ego and intolerance with that group. I realize how difficult it must be to keep us all in line--so many egos, so many different generations, cultures and viewpoints and yet we manage to interact respectfully and profitably. Even our blow ups can turn cordial.

On the other hand a much smaller group of same generation writers with the same western Kansas culture and values cannot get through six months without drama, tears and achey egos. I thank the mods and admin for wisely herding us hamsters to the light. Well, maybe not the light, but drama free hamster wheels. --s6

Best run forum I've ever seen.
Wonderful group of writers with help and advice you can't really beat.

I appreciate you all.

I'm just going to copy this 'cause it says what I would:

Thank you, AW. Love you and your people muchly. <3

AW would be an extraordinary community in any era, but in the 21st century, it is close to being miraculous. The values and the norms and the conduct it encourages (and enforces, as necessary) has created a model of what shared community can be among a vast group of people who are diverse in every possible way. A heartfelt thanks to everyone who does anything to keep this spinning plate spinning smoothly, but an especially loud thanks to Mac, El Jefe.

Hey? You like Vernie better than you like me??? WTF! I'll bet it is because she is younger! Those brats from 1953 get all the attention! I'm gonna go eat worms! --s6

Yep! Let's get this party started.

Happy new year, and thanks AW for making this a safe learning and supportive environment,
with great mods who also keep eyes on and help the areas that allow disagreement within the context of ryfw.

I've seen nothing else like this, and nowhere else online.

So thanks!!!!! To all of you!!!
