From the newbies to the Vets!

Ok, so there have been a few posts lately about newbie's on here, and all comments have been completely fair I admit!

But I would just like to say, as a newbie, that we only ask cos we want to be a part of this, and we love you vets! You are like mentors to us.

So I want to start this thread so that us noobs, or anyone I guess, has the chance to say Thanks to anyone who has particularly been helpful to us!

I would personally like to say thanks to JessTheMess and Helloitsio (sorry if I have spellings wrong!). You guys helped me when I started, and I've noticed you helping a lot of others with a lot of patience!

Plus, Del, Rudeee and whatshercurl should get a mention cos they crack me up!

And KathyMack, Jillipoo you always share your infinite wisdom!

There are of course others, but this is already too long now and I hate long posts!! (Now I know why oscar speeches go on and on, I could thank lots more ppl, so hopefully other newbies will get in here!!)

:notwo rthy:: notworthy:

So THANK YOU to everyone!!

Everyone on here has been helpful and nice to me and I appreciate that so much! But I'd like to give a special shout out to CurlyClaudia for going out of her way to help me out! In my eyes she's the bomb diggity!
What a nice post. We all really love this place, that's why we're here. Know one minds giving advice and helping those who show they want to learn. As I told one young lady who asked me for advice, I wanted her (and everyone else) to love her curls each and everyday.

DITTO the thank you! The pictures in signatures and info on what you're using are SO helpful, often I don't even have to ask newb questions, I just check the pic, check the sig, and write it down.

I think it's hysterical that in the 15 years I've been online, this is the first board I've seen where y'all show the back of your head in the avatars.
