Topic: Member Appreciation Day

Posts 1 to 20 of 33

So after reading about one of our dear friends taking a leave of absence from the forums, I started thinking about what we can do to help make our fellow members feel more at home here. I myself, as well as many others, have taken a break from the forums due to similar reasons and I want to help end this trend. So let's create a Member Appreciation Day, where every day is Member Appreciation Day (literally)!

Here's the point of this thread: I want you to dedicate a post to a member here where you write some comments about why you appreciate that person. It could be as short as a couple of sentences or a long paragraph, it's up to you. You choose one person for each post but you can come back here each day to write a new post about one other member. Mind you that I'm not expecting people to return here every day, the rule is simply there just so we can make each individual feel more appreciated rather than if we grouped all members in one post.

I want this thread to help make us feel closer as a community and remind us that while there will be comments that may bring us down, whether it be on this site or in other parts of the internet in general, you should still know that there are people here that appreciate you. So let's inject some more positivity to this site!


The person I want to dedicate this post to is @nessisonett. I used to only see you post here every once in a while, but lately your activity on the forums has skyrocketed and it's been great too see. I really enjoy reading you posts as you seem to be an avid gamer with a wide range of tastes in video games. Our conversations have been interesting and I feel like we share similar affections for a lot of games, most notably the Kingdom Hearts series. It's fun having you here, so I hope that we'll keep seeing you here in the future!

What a nice idea for a thread! I suppose I’ll give a shoutout to @KALofKRYPTON. Lord knows we’ve had our differences over the years in comment sections, forums or whatever but you always present your arguments in reasonable, balanced terms and it’s nice to have somebody to sh*t on the latest Who with 😉

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Really nice idea. I'd like to share my appreciation for @RogerRoger, who has contributed much to the forums since he first joined a couple of years ago and is always very respectful and considerate towards other users. He is passionate about his interests with a positivity that I feel is sadly lacking in most corners of the internet. I particularly enjoy his contributions to the user impressions and reviews thread as well as his incredible screenshots. He also doesn't hesitate to help other users when they have a problem and is always interested in reading the views of others across a broad range of topics. We both enjoy Bond films and his passion for Hitman got me into the reboot, which I have massively enjoyed playing and would have probably overlooked if not for his recommendation. In all a top guy and a valuable member of the Push Square community!

Thank you NHS

@KratosMD Bravo!

@nessisonett Me, reasonable and balanced? You take that back!! ;-p

My shout is absolutely to @RogerRoger , whether he gets to read it or not. I love it that stuff he likes are treated like passions, and that he buys tons of tat and articulates himself in a thoughtful, considered and incredibly articulate manner to which we should all aspire (I say all, I mean me - all fast and loose and not checking my typing and such).

Great idea @KratosMD!

I'm not great at dishing out compliments, as they always seem to come out like I'm insulting them or something lol!

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There are so many users that I would like to recognize. I count you all as comrades and fellow soul brothers and sisters. I think it’s a good idea to give a shout out to people whose comments either make us smile, or whose wisdom and experience have helped me in some way, shape, or form. Several come to mind. Actually many, many do. I can always come back on another day to give a virtual fist bump to someone else, but I’d start with @themcnoisy . I’ve given him the title of The Legend, The Grandmaster, The Maestro. He’s been a rock on the forums since I’ve been here and his polls are legendary. He’s always been kind and a brother to us all, and I know if I met him in real life he’d be that cool guy at the party that everybody gravitates toward because he makes them feel important and part of the crew. Noisy, here’s to you, brother 🍻.

@Th3solution Bloody hell Sol I've got a tear in my eye here. Thanks man that's a great post and I'm lost for words.

OK so if we are only picking one, I don't know how that is possible. @Th3solution has always been one of my favourite commentors, open minded about games and a boss to boot. He even tried Fez one time. Ive never seen Sol have a crossed word and has even stood up for me, being wise and knowledgeable. Top head, great gamer, legend. Hopefully Sol can run the next megapoll, passing the baton on to someone we can all trust.


There are so many top heads in the forums I have met on Pushsquare. People who immediately stand out are @BAMozzy @LieutenantFatman @kyleforrester87 @KratosMD @AdamNovice @RogerRoger @hego @Fight_Sora_Fight @Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy @DerMeister @Frigate @johnnycide @JoeBlogs @kidfried @Kyroki @KALofKRYPTON @Gamer83 @Knuckles-Fajita @Gremio108 @Thrillho @Throb @ApostateMage @JohnnyShoulder @leucocyte @KratosMD @kreativekontroll @mookysam @Neolit @Octane @playstation1995 @Quintumply @RogerRoger @Ralizah @Rudy_Manchego @splat @Tasuki @Wesker @mookysam @ZeD @belmont @nessisonett @Heavyarms55 @Simon_Fitzgerald @anchorsam_9 @andreoni79 @WanderingBullet everyone a boss.

However there are 2 legends right up there as Pushsquare legends. @FullbringIchigo and @Jaz007 they should both scoop multiple awards. Bringo for running the final fantasy thread and Jaz for helping me get into full metal alchemist. I salute the pair of you.

Great thread and the last 5 years have been fun. Thanks for the memories and sharing a common interest and hearing everyones opinions and recommendations has been a big part of my life. Keep it going and keep pushing square.

@themcnoisy
Thanks matey I appreciate that. There is a great community here and I do feel lucky to be a part of it.
There is such a strong show of empathy, compassion, kindness and wisdom shown by the members here, while also having a great sense of fun and the ability to politely disagree on subjects without descending into silly arguments.
You are all awesome, hopefully some of us can meet up one day.

Shout out to @donjorginho who joined recently. You still have 4 hours to make a move in our chess game, or just start another one. Or don't. I won't be offended.

Thanks @themcnoisy for the mention. I'm not as regular as a lot though I do try and dip in and out. Push Square and the community are a big part of why I got back into gaming when I bough my PS4 in early 2015 and I have had some great recommendations, some fun and lots of debates. I have an odd sense of humour so appreciate the acceptance of that. Or you have all ignored me and I'm in blissful ignorance.

As for my shout out, well it has to go to @kyleforrester87 as the one who (I think) recommended Hyper Light Drifter and for regularyl making me chuckle on the forums and especially news posts with some rather exquisite responses.

With regards to setting up forum events, polls and generally keeping up the community spirit then @themcnoisy is the grandmaster. Huge props.

I'll also give a shout out to @Gremio108 because he never really seems too serious and is often witty in his posts.

@Rudy_Manchego Thanks mate that's nice, I know I'm as annoying as I am funny. I appreciate the kudos though, I make it look so easy but it's really not and when I get home after a long day busting chops it's people like you that make it all worthwhile. I'll give @Gremio108 a shout out too, he's dropped a few zingers in the comments section and I'm usually left kicking myself for not getting there first.

@kyleforrester87 I always assumed at the start of the day you state ‘it’s time to bust chops and chew bubblegum... and I’m all outta gum.’
