    Default Thanks and Kudos thread

    Hi Everyone,

    Thought I would start a general thread were people can send Thanks to other members for some of the nice things that they do for other people. This is definitely the friendliest and most helpful forum on the site. So want to recognize people for going above and beyond the call of duty either to another member(s) or to some charity etc.

    I want to start of the thread by thanking every one who supported me after my burglary. The following people, although not complete, (and I apologize to anyone I forgot) deserve a special shout out:

    David Williamson (wizardsrainbow)- for giving me a Store Credit to Betts
    annonymous member - for also giving me a store cridit to Betts
    Colin (onefathom) - for giving me a copy of Different Seasons that he was selling on Ebay. (wouldn't even let me pay for shipping)
    Josh (jsmcmullen92) - for offering to sell a copy of NIght Shift at half its value (I turned it down, but I may still take you up on it if it still stands (as a place holder until I find a good copy))
    Bill (merlin1952) - for good advice and support in a PM
    Jerome (RandalFlag) - for helping with estimates on value for insurance claim.

    Some of these thanks are long overdue.

    Just wanted to get this thread started since I noticed a small uptick in "disagreements" on the site over the last month.

    If there is already a thread like this, then please merge.

    Thanks,
    Mike
    Wanted:

    'Salem's Lot Portfolio #606..

    Also, replace 1st/1st that got stolen:

    Another call out to Colin. PM out of the blue letting me know he found a Little Sisters of Eluria gift edition #246. He knew I was looking for it even though I didn't (was not thinking about matching a gift edition).

    Brian James Freeman- going out of his way to write me a letter stating that the PC Blockade Billy I purchased from him was previously owned by him so I could place it in the traycase. And a nice gift on top of that. Means a lot.

    David from Betts for just being a general all- around badass! Total Class Act.

    Also I thank the new members. It is awesome seeing new collectors so excited about the hobby. Nice refresher on the fun and enthusiasm of collecting and to see the vets in here treat them so well.

    First, thank you to Mike for starting this thread and reminding us of the great people here. Itís an awesome thing youíve done just giving us the space to celebrate the good that seems so rare nowadays. The effect is much bigger than giving simple thanks.

    Secondly Iíd like to thank Paul Suntup and Kim at Camelot and the anonymous individual(s) who made it possible for me to get a numbered Rosemaryís Baby and maintain my number. Itís been a horrible two years for me and my family and this was a tremendous bright spot that could not have come at a more needed time. It really knocked me flat and Iíve been thinking of ways to pay it forward ever since. That book is worth so much more to me than anything. It really made me feel like I had someone on my side after so long feeling on the outside. It was tremendous and I will forever be grateful.

    Can I just put a perpetual post here with a shout out to Paul Suntup for always being super responsive to questions/comments/requests and generally just being very helpful and nice despite also running a publishing company full time and probably having his own life outside of books?





    Also I appreciate the effort that everybody (but specifically RF) puts into the "Intriguing Stephen King Sales" thread, which has resulted in a number of great additions to my shelves and walls.

    Please help me find:

    Not that he needs his ego boosted, but I want to thank Paul for the traffic to the site. August used to truly be the Dog Days on the site with minimal activity. Suntup single-handedly has made August (and 11 other months) a busy time here.

    Well since weíre on the topic, and in this thread, I want to give thanks to this forum and everyone on here who have supported my wild ideas, from DRE on through SE. As you know, it all began here and for that reason, I will always carry a torch for this place. Thank you!

    Yours truly,
    The guy with the big ego.

    Another shout out, this time to Dave (shaq). Six weeks ago he let me know that one of "my" #186's, for Sleeping Beauties, was up on eBay; I'd forgotten to request the damn thing from Mindy and ended up with 373. To make it worse I then had to pass on the ebay auction because I'd just made a big purchase. Well, it didn't sell then and six weeks later the seller put it back up as a no-reserve auction; I was high bidder on that today at just $18 over issue price. Just fired off emergency e-mail to Mindy at CD asking to change my Art Portfolio number if there's still time. Anybody need Sleeping Beauties #373? George

    I gotta give a shout out and kudo's to Ralph Mulleins (Rom 217 Caretaker), Dick Olson (Dolso) and El Jefe betterknown as (Randall Flagg) for their extended & continued support offered to me during my medical issues. Also, Dick and Ralph have been more than accommodating and generous in helping with my collection needs and just being "virtual friends". Thanks to all of you guys.

    Thanks to all of those who expressed their prayers, good thoughts and everything else you so kindly expressed here!!!!

    Just now stumbling across this thread and you're most welcome, buddy! Thank you for getting me an inscribed copy of the UK The Fireman awhile back!

    Huge shout out to Ralph who has to be the most patient person on earth!

    Thanks to Simon who has been amassing what's turning out to be a pretty large collection of UK editions for me for well over a year now.

    Thanks to Jeff for the many "offline" conversations regarding collecting and life in general. And the awesome videos that he produces!

    Thanks to all of you for offering condolences on the passing of our dog.

    And I always try to thank you guys via my collection thread when you enable me lol.

    Thanks to ur2ndbiggestfan: what's better than a corny as hell comment to make a person smile.

    Skoogs shows off his newest copies of Dune and Ur2nd's response:
    You Dune good!


    That is funny.

    As Jimmy Durante said I (he's) got a million of 'em!

    Thanks for the smiles.

    Well hell...

    Thanks to Jerome for running this site and thanks to Simon for sending me all those books that are breaking my bookshelves from sheer weight!

    i never would have imagined that NOT getting a ticket to the Sommerville event would turn out to be so much fun. this was not the first time that i have been lucky enough to see King speak, but it will stand out for me as the most fun i have had at one of his events.

    its not something thats easy for me to admit, but i am a terrible introvert and spending time with new people can often be an awkward experience for both me and those i try to interact with. because of that, if i had gotten a ticket up-front, i likely would have quietly slipped in-to and out-of the event without speaking to anyone. after missing out on a ticket, i was recruited to be a book mule and although i was disappointed that i wouldnt have a guaranteed book, i jumped at the chance as i was grateful for the opportunity to attend the event and happy that i could help out someone else. but, i was a little anxious about attending with people i hadnt spent time with before and wasnt sure how things would work out. as it turns out, the anxiety was all-for-not as everyone i met was so welcoming and it turned out to be the best King event i have ever been lucky enough to attend. Although i met a ton of great people, there are a few i would like to acknowledge and say a special thank you to:

    first, LotGuy who somehow randomly found me wandering alone on the street and and brought me over to the meet the group.
    next, Sally-Anne for making the time in line fly by with laughs and good conversation.
    then, there is Beverly Marsh for keeping the fun going and allowing me to tag along with the group after the event.
    to tippy4 and EXPLORER for sitting with me and sharing some great, fun stories.
    and finally, a special shout-out to Roseannebarr for being so kind, introducing me to everyone and just being an all-around helluva nice guy.

    it was a shared interest that originally brought me here, but it is the people that continue to bring me back. thanks all for making the event so memorable.
