    You either agree with the subject of a thread or disagree...just because your response is sarcastic or has some sarcastic element doesn't make it off topic. For example:

    The staff has always done a tremendous job helping with the site...well everyone except Hassun

    How would that be off topic?

    The entire post can be sarcastic:

    Yeah, the staff does such a great job
    Still isn't off topic...you could make an argument they were of "low" quality....depending on what was said you could even argue disrespecting the site's staff but you can't say that sarcasm equates to being off topic.

    Now, back on topic I just don't think it matters to any of the staff if we have a "thanks" thread.

    Look please don't blame all members Just because of a few bad apples on the tree, You all have been pretty cool or nice to me and yes The titles like memeber,.com member and Elite member and the Vertain are a somewhat of a climb. but other then that I like it here

    Look take if from Some who has a checkerd past on boards look i have been helpful to a lot of the staff on other boards and many of the mods on other saw it different On Some boards I got Banned for life and on some boards I am still posting So hey not all memember think you (the staff) is bad, Alest on the board I dont have to question the rules or the ranks because they are there lay out before me. so hey all of you are cool in my book..

    And I should Know i have been "Boarding" for 10 years on a lot of different board, and the climb is just part of the mountain of ranks.

    Well, I thought that one was kinda clever and light hearted actually.

    And my suggestion wasn't made strictly for the sake of staff. But.... I said that like 32 million times in this thread. The impression I am getting is that staff prefers to only recognize the bad apples. Maybe you're comfortable with perceiving the member population as a group of ungratefuls. I can do a search and pull up a dozen staff made comments about how they feel disliked. But finding a staff comment and say they feel appreciated, or proud of a member? Much harder to find.

    I figured a solution would have been for yah'll to have a place to see that isn't the case for many of us.

    Maybe I should have been fishing for a member appreciation thread... but that wouldn't mean staff would take the time to recognize the do-gooders there either.

    I don't think that's true. While there would undoubtedly be some posts like that, I think the majority of the thank yous' would be genuine. Of course, at the same time, I can see how the idea was rejected. Some people might use the thread simply as a means to increase thier post count, and that would fall into the spam catagory in my opinion. But maybe that's just me. Still, it's not an all bad idea though.
    What? You've never seen a talking cabbage before? Well, if you were a bit more open minded, then maybe you WOULD have.
