May of WTFs Appreciation Post

Hi All,

Now that the end of the month is fast approaching, I just wanted to take a quick moment to say thank you very much to @DHH @Betsy_Haibel @avdi and everyone else involved in making this happen. I can only imagine just how much work has been involved in the moderation, coordination and all the things that have gone into making this a smooth process.

This initiative was something that I know I and many others have really appreciated and I think it has built a huge amount of good will with the community at large. Hopefully one day I’ll have the chance to buy you all a drink and say thank you in person but until then this will have to do.


adding to this, this is basically the first programming forum i’ve felt comfortable browsing in & talking in for more than, like, one post. i’m not exactly sure why but i feel like the more relaxed-but-still-moderated atmosphere helped me contribute without a fear of like i guess flamewars/personal attacks/general unpleasantness which i’ve seen happen a lot on other forums?

i didn’t post that much, but i really enjoyed reading this little part of the rails forums for May and i hope similar things happen in the future :slight_smile:
