To all Mods:

I can't tell you how much I appreciate you guys. You make NarniaWeb (what I consider to be a sort of home) safe from all the chaos and creepers and fights one normally comes across on other sites. If it weren't for you, NarniaWeb wouldn't be the loving place it is today.

And what's more, you accomplish this while always remaining loving, friendly, non-condescending, gentle, but firm. I respect you. But I can also talk to you like a friend and equal. And that's one of the things that has always amazed me about this site.

On most other sites, the mods are either meek or inactive, and their boards are overtaken by rulebreakers and trolls. And in contrast, I once belonged to a site where the mods were so fierce about the rules, I was constantly afraid whenever I made a post, because the slightest thing would set them off and they could kick me off the site. And even when they weren't getting after you about a rule, no one was allowed to talk to them. Because they were the mods. And I was just a little, unimportant regular member.

But it's not so on this site, and that's one of the main things that drew me to this place. Many of the mods here are some of my best friends. And when I break a rule by accident, they are always quick to send me a loving PM as a reminder, politely asking me to fix my mistake.

Great job! You make this place the only site I've seen that is the way a site should be! I love you guys! :ymhug:

This was a very nice surprise. :D I had a pretty bad start to my day so it was really nice to discover that it was mod day. I absolutely love the graphics Dot. You all are so sweet :ymhug: and sneaky. The videos and graphics in this thread and the comments ... everything is so wonderful. :)

A few random personal thanks

Kate- you welcomed me on this site my first day, after 3 years I havent forgotten, thank you :)

johobbit- when I made my first stupid mistake on Nweb, you told me what I did wrong (and I was actually very scared, which resulted me not coming on for a few days :p ) but your kindness truly showed me the amazingness of the mods

Lady_Arwen- you live 30 minutes from me and we call eachother neighbors :p
You are so nice and funny in chat and I love talking to you :)

and to every other mod who has helped me when I have become to blonde or puts up with me in the chatroom- thank you :)

THANK YOU AGAIN ALL MODS!!!! :ymhug: :ymhug: :ymhug:

Hello, Dear Moderators! :D

So... I had multiple things planned, but those plans were thwarted by my unnaturally long state of suspended animation (I woke up after almost all of the previous posts were posted. *slaps self*)...

:P

Anagrams for "Moderator":

ad or rot me
am do er ort
ode to a ram

(take out two letters, and you can get "Tea room" and "doormat" :P)

yeah... the anagram solver spewed /mostly/ gibberish.

But thanks for all your hard work, Mods! you guys are awesome. :P

To all Moderators on Narniaweb,

Thank you so much for keeping Narniaweb such a great site :) Thanks for all your hard work and dedication - we all really appreciate it!!!

I'm sorry I don't have a lovely avatar and sig. like the others - mine is a bit boring! However, I appreciate all you do very much.

I would like to especially thank Fantasia Kitty (the first one to welcome me when I joined Narniaweb last August). Thanks so much for all the fine work you do here.

May God Bless and keep all of you in His care always,

Eowyn (Rachael)

Wow... I have no idea what to say.

I stumbled across this thread earlier this morning, and I must say, it made me a bit teary-eyed. ;)) It made my day so much better. What can I say that hasn't been said?

You NWebbers are some of the most friendly, caring people on the planet. I say that from the bottom of my heart. You have given me faith that the internet isn't all bad. ;)) I'm so blessed by you guys. I sincerely mean that!

It's my privilege to be a moderator here on NarniaWeb. Thanks for making my job so special. :)

*noms the cookies*

I think y'all should post your graphics for each moderator in this thread - just in case there are some mods that weren't able to get on, and for posterity's sake. :D I love all of the sigs/avies, by the way - especially Philip and Growlie. ;))

*wanders in*

Hmm, Mod Appreciation day, eh? Well then.....

THANK YOU MODS! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!! \m/ \m/ ;) :D :ymhug: :ymhug:

You guys (and girls) are some of the best moderators on the web. From the small amount of other web forums I've visited, this is by far the best. :D And even though that is partly the result of having great members, it's even more thanks to the amazing set of Mod's that keep NW safe, fun and overall just a fantastic site.

Y'all help to make NW "click" and keep it running smoothly. To slightly re-word a famous line: "A great forum is only as good as the Mod's behind it." ;)

So, here's to you, the amazing set of Mods that not only are the best regulators of any forum but also the best people of any forum. *raises his glass of rootbeer in a toast*

And here's to many more! Cheers! :)
Avvie by the great Djaq!

Good idea, MountainFireFlower. :)

johobbit: Yes, I was playing it. I'm glad you enjoyed it! ;)
flambeau: It was inspired by both The Lord of the Rings and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader credits, yes. :)

I seriously love how shocked y'all are... :)) Three cheers for Elanor and narnianerd for organizing this! Aren't you mods glad we're good? What with the super ninja skills of Ela and Joe, we could get into ALL kinds of trouble. :ymdevil:

johobbit wrote:Lady Courage, I appreciate the sentiment "NARNIA WEB IS NOTHING WITHOUT Y'ALL!" but honestly, if it weren't for you members, we'd be bored stiff and out of a job. :)) Seriously, and for those of you who missed this, you folk are amazing! :ymhug: Thank you for your gracious words, Lady!


Ah well, you know how it is; good leadership translates to good citizens. :D So thank you!! But I'm still right. :P :ymhug:


flambeau wrote:Elsie, I love the graphics, but then you knew I would, didn't you? :P ;) Thank you for your totally amazing and epic post!! Despite declaring that you didn't know how to say it, I think you said it beautifully! I was grinning like a fool! :D


:)) You were!?! AWESOME! I love making you do that. But you didn't get a pic this time either, I assume? :P And yes, I did know you'd love the graphics. *snicker*

Oooh, great idea Miff!!

Again, I'm so pleasantly smug you mods were surprised (and delighted)! This is better than a practical joke... :))

Again, thank you Mods for all you've done. :) To show my appreciation, I made you all some graphics.

First off, here's the set I made in honor of Johobbit.

Image Image

And some wallies for all the mods I've gotten to know over the (Almost) year I've been here. (Note: Princess Anna, I wanted to make yours extra-special, but none of the pictures or colors were working out right. So I'm sorry if the wallie I made for you looks a little plain. But the poem in it, I wrote myself, from the heart. :ymhug: )

Princess Anna: http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h36 ... Wallie.png

I wanted to make one for all of you, but unfortunately, I didn't know what all of you would like, what your interests were, etc. So I hope it will suffice for me to just honestly tell you: I love and appreciate you all!!!!!! :ymhug: :ymhug: :ymhug:
