Aw I miss you guys too
Great thread Adam. It makes me feel all fuzzy inside to hear what this site has done for you and everyone else. I am so thankful for everyone who has posted here. Without the ongoing input of passion, humour and energy from you guys this place would not be around today.
I had a big hopes when starting this site, but I still could not have imagined so many people buying into it like you guys have. It's exactly the message Tom was shouting from the beginning, don't let anyone tell you what you can or can't do, really can achieve almost anything if you have enough passion.
I am such a better person because of the people of this site and the response we've received. You all gave me a reason to learn how to design a website and forum, and then rebuild a better one. You helped me become better at writing posts, debating, managing trouble, being more respectful. You've given me the confidence to trust myself, trust my decisions, and trust that there are brilliant people out there. I really wonder whether I would be able to do my current job and grow like I am if it wasn't for you all.
I think ultimately the future activity of the site depends on the output from AVA. We've got a new album coming up so we can expect a lot of old and new faces popping up soon. Yay.
I'm going to push for a closer relationship with official site. Can't promise anything but I think both the fans and the band could benefit from this. I am prepared to put the effort in.
Thank you guys.
*English accent* I want to kiss you all on the bum cheeks.
It's so great hearing from you again Matty!
