This is going to sound like a humblebrag (and let's face it, it is) but I have received so much positive feedback over the years from thousands of people for building this community and contributing to it.

If you are reading this please know that YOU are what makes this site work. I would like to have this thread open for anyone who wants to express their gratitude to any member for their contributions to our online community or anything else.

@1 Lucky Texan is someone who has been here since the beginning and I would like to thank them for sticking around and for the incredible amount of awesome stuff they have shared over the years, and also for never changing your avatar since you joined (I just look for that myself)! WE are lucky to have them aboard.

There are many more experienced folks here than myself, but I make an effort to help when I can, maybe occasionally I insert myself unnecessarily, but it's out of a desire not to let folks 'hang' or assuring they get complete info - or to encourage some 'sideways thinking'.

I myself would not have attempted half the work I've done on my cars without brucey, Plain, cardoc, or many others. It's easy for me to be nervous when attempting stuff with 'low predictability' and pics, links to videos and emotional support are important to me. I don't have great social skills so, participation here is highly valued. I even like being corrected - hardly a week goes by I don't learn something.

For the other folks that contribute both original on topic material, AND site support/moderation, etc. THANK YOU.

I think that the longer you are part of this forum...the more info and help you get. I joined in Dec 2009 when we got our 4th Gen...which was replaced by Subaru bc our first one had the dreaded shake. This is the longest I have been a part of any forum community and it is by far the best one...although the one for the new crosstrek is pretty good too...;)

@walker has been an invaluable resource, letting new people like me know what's what even when he's probably had to repeat the same things as new people join. There are many others, but for being consistent across so many threads, providing helpful information (not just opinion) Walker is my hero.

I want to give thank to everyone, in particular to our moderator team @AWDFTW @Brucey @Rub @eagleeye , who has been incredibly patient and charitable in answering common questions that have been asked and answered multiple times in the past. That is a BIG part of what makes everything work well.

You posted it just like we practiced it.

He said I was patient.

Ha.

I came here after totalling my Camry and wound up with an Outback. Wanted more info on it and found this place.

The great resources and greater community has hooked me since. Even when I was not driving an Outback I still showed up here.

In addition to everyone else mentioned I have to thank @idosubaru for all the good info/experience he's shared.

Bear with me as I think I have a funny story to tell. The other day I was thinking, "@Brucey has been a member on this website for a long time, he has been a moderator here for a long time too. When did that happen???"

Every so often I like to go back and read through things from the good'ole days. I had completely forgotten that I was a big cheerleader for bringing Brucey on as a moderator some 15 years ago. Little did we know when we brought him aboard that he was a seasoned veteran moderator of multiple other online communities as we as having an interesting enthusiasm about cars. And unless I am terribly mistaken he is the longest serving mod or admin other than myself.

Thanks to Brucey for sticking with us all these years, your contributions are a cornerstone of this website.

I just showed up on the day they opened.

I didn't even know what a nuclear panner plant was.
insert Homer J Simpson, at the big control board,. (...yeah posting pics here is harder, and finding open source simpsons that will successfully link is harder still)
