Ever since Paul arrived at Wizzley I have noticed how much effort he has put in to assisting wherever he can - and he can assist, big time!

So, I thought, even if I have not (yet) required his expertise, it would be only right to thank him and to give him a massive #ShoutOut so that all those who have received assistance (and those that haven't, yet) could add their t'hank you' to this thread.

Great work Paul! If I am ever able to assist you I will not hesitate to do so.If you want / need any promotion for your work, just let me know.

In this online world it is people like yourself that deserve to receive back more than you put in - so you should be a millionaire by this time next year - if the 'rules of engagement' hold true!

Have a great season of good will - as I am sure all those that use this forum will want to endorse these few words of thanks.

Hear, hear with loud cheers.

I will also extend this thanks back many more years.   It may not be obvious here, but Paul is one of my Runescape friends. 

I head up a clan there (group of players who band together to socialize or join in quests etc in game).  It's been running since 2007.   Back in the day, I realised that I couldn't be logged in 24/7, so I needed generals to help me run the place.  I looked at all of the clan members and chose those who helped others the most.  I also favoured those with a mature outlook and a tendency not to look objectively to resolve conflicts.

Paul was one of those generals when he was just thirteen years old.  His nomination was endorsed in a vote of his peers.  He's been well-respected there for many years; so it's no surprise to me to see how helpful he is here too.

I'm proud to say that I've watched the boy grow up into a wonderful man.  I'll be the first to add my name in any shout out to him.  If he represents the next generation, then I have no worries about the future.

A tendency to look objectively!  Sorry typo there!

Oh wow! Really was a massive shock to see this in the latest topic box on the front page. I'm really not sure what to say either... I'm flattered and just glad that I could be of service to you all!

Humagaia - Thank you for your kind words and starting this thread. I'll keep your offers in mind and if there's anything that you'd like me to do just send a PM my way. I don't exactly have the biggest advertising platform or anything like that, but whatever it is I'll have a crack at it! I also hope that by this time next year I'll be a millionaire, I could really do with that to pay off my ever increasing student debt! I hope you too have a great season of good will and happy (late) winter solstice! 

Jo - I hadn't realised but it's surely around 6/7 years of knowing you by now which is well, a very long time! You should be credited with the help too as most of the time it is a joint effort to solve the problems :P ... Also, were it not for you, I wouldn't be here in the first place with these wonderful people!

Brenda - Thank you! And yes, it was very kind of him :)

HollieT - Haha, I'm glad your eyes have been saved - though I apologise if it's reduced night time article writing efficiency!

Achim - I feel honoured to be thanked by the co-founder of Wizzley, thank you for helping to create this site and if I can be of service, do let me know!

Ragtimelil - We've certainly got a few issues resolved and I'm happy I could be of service! I also do agree that Jo and others are also a wonderful help to the Wizzley community!

Thank you all again, happy holidays and if you need help, you know where to get it! Wink

Good to know someone like Paul is here at Wizzley, he and Jo offered some help and advice when I had problems with my laptop.

Ditto on all said here, Paul -

We haven't had direct communication, but when I'm reading forum threads, your sincerity, concern for others and willingness to give of your time to help others stands out like a gigantic highlighted paragraph in a new textbook...

Happy Holidays and thanks for sharing such positive energy with all of us!

2uesday - Thank you :) - How did it end up with the laptop in the end?

Sheri - Thank you also! And I'm glad to hear that your eyes are doing well! :)

Dustytoes - It's a good feeling to know that I'm okay at explaining things - I used to find it hard to explain things so it means a lot that that's getting better and thank you for it :) 

frugalrvers - I'm flattered that you've observed that of me - it's a great feeling to know that I'm giving off a good impression! As you say, we've not had direct contact but I find your story fascinating!

CADoerr - Thank you! I'm glad that it's helped you out! :)

Happy holidays, Wizzley!
