Congratulations are in order!

I think that most of us will agree, the internet is not always a friendly place to be.  Something about the ability to hide behind an anonymous user name can sometimes bring out the worst in people, and sites devoted to sports, where emotions can run high, are no exception.

It is when you take a moment to contrast it against that less-than-pleasant backdrop that you can really see how our little community here shines.  We don't always agree with one another, sure, but from one side of the web to the other I honestly don't think you're going to find a friendlier place to talk hockey.  Being a moderator on this site is a pretty easy job, all told, and it's all of you that we have to thank for that.  So from all of us who help to run this site, I want to offer a sincere thanks to all of you for making this such a great place to visit.

Now with that said, it's also worth taking a bit of time sometimes to look back at how this site came to be what it is.  This sort of culture of respect doesn't just happen on its own - it started years ago with some of our earliest posters.  When someone new comes to the site, whether they know it or not, they take their cues on how to interact from the people who are already here. 

Today, we would like to formally recognize three of those "veteran" posters for their excellent contributions to this site.  All three of these guys have been here for years if not decades, and each has been a consistent positive presence on this forum throughout all of that time.  They've had lots of insights and opinions about the Habs throughout the years (and in one particular case, also lots to say about horses and jazz) and I think that it's pretty safe to say that this forum wouldn't be what it is today without the three of them.

And so, without further ado, I'd like to ask that you join me in congratulating our three newest "Hall of Fame" members, soon to be sporting their shiny new purple designations under their user names:

Archey, Habs_Hockey_Nutz and jennifer_rocket



Well done, guys! :5187:

Congrats to the three of you, you all are a valuable part of the community and although we may have a difference in opinions and even may have heated exchanges now and again. I respect you all and the community wouldn't be the same without any of you. 

^^^^^ This.

Definitely congrats in order. I've been a member (under a couple of different names) since back in 2005 and enjoy this forum more than any other I've been a part of thanks to the thoughtful posts of so many great people--the three being honored are a case in point.

I have to tell you it's a heck of an image to see that jersey under my name and I wish you all many snapshots for your own scrapbooks- which is really poorly named.

For the Bigbook then and for all your Christmases to come I wish you all the best and many more good years under the tutelage of the Habs, though it seems you guys got the ceremony idea pretty well in hand already..
