All right. I've been part of this community for a very short while, just since February.
I haven't been here for every high and low.
I haven't even been alive for the entirety of the Bionicle fandom.
But I can say, with no doubt in my mind, this community is one of the kindest, most forgiving, and just downright enjoyable to interact with of anything I've ever experienced.
From my first moments here, everyone here has helped me with my writing, my mocs, and my knowledge of the Bionicle universe.
Without this board, and indirectly, the cast, I would have never experienced the great experience it was watching Reviving Bionicle, I would have never discovered Bricklink, and, probably most importantly, I wouldn't have gone to Brickfair. It's been amazing, and I'm just a beginner.
About just Brickfair, I met three Boards members:
@Yveran, who I talked to for a little bit,
@Phoenix, who I talked to shortly after, and
@Joe, who has been great throughout my boards experience, being one of the best at improving my writing style and my Self Moc the entire time.
Someday I want to meet more of you guys.
Then at Brickfair, I talked to TTV as soon as I got in. I was extremely nervous, I must admit, but when I got up to you guys and handed you the paper I wanted you to sign*, you were great, and laughed/gave me death threats, which was hilarious.
I could go on and on, but I'll end with this:
Brickfair, you guys, and the entire experience is awesome.
And sign me up for next year.
This was also my favorite podcast yet, by far.
