You know what I love most about the tank? The people. How many threads have you seen where somebody needed something and other members stepped right up to help out. Many not asking anything in return. I've never seen an online community that is like this one. I just wanted to take the time to point out a few people here who make it great for me. If I left you off the list don't worry I'll add you later. But I just think we should take the time to personally and publicly acknowledge those here who make this place the most awesome online community ever.
GI Eddie, you have helped me out time and again... thanks bro.
Darthbrett. Another great one who has helped without question or asking anything in return.
Golobulous You are one sick processed meat loving freak but nobody has a bigger heart than you here bro.
Eopie Herder Man your talent knows no end and in time everybody will know just how cool you are
Money B you are one of the people here I respect the most... even if you are dull and dry
Amberbratt There has yet to be a day that you have not made me laugh
DarthZartan my favorite drunk.
CharIJoe there isn't a person in the Florida sightings thread who doesn't owe you big time. other areas could take pointers from how you organized things there.
VIPER 48 Can't say enough about you bro
Shin Densetsu Supermod? no, try Superman! You have no idea of how much I've learned from you.
Shogi just all around cool guy.
C.I.A.D. You are as wise as Master Yoda and as powerful as Master Windu. You are the master... I just hope the day never comes that you have to cut off my limbs and leave me for dead on some hot lava rocks!
and the most important is saved for last
Destro without you none of this would be here.
I challenge everybody who reads this to stand up, take a step back from your computer and give a hand to these people and whoever else has made this place what it is not only for you but for everybody here. Then set back down and testify as well. Tell about somebody who has made your time on the tank that much better. Come on people, don't be shy. There is so much bad in this world every time you turn on the news, or read a paper or even just walk outside....... lets focus on the good for a change. I named a few here but my hat is off to every last member here who has contributed and made our time wasted on line worth it.

When I was a newbie here, Stygian hooked me up with a Snow Job from wave 5!
He didn't even want anything in return!
Now if echo7solo would be kind enough to do the same thing with all those goodies he got I would really be stoked!

I would like to add the following people as well:
Xerofall: Only dealt with him once but he made a great impression on me. A total class act!
RikkiTikki: Looking out for me as far as finding Joes. Another great one to deal with!
heatviper: Only dealt with once but he is a one cool guy!
I agree with everyone on your list although (excluding Money-B) I have never dealt with anyone else but I can tell they are terrific people by the way they conduct themselves on hisstank.
And yes I gotta agree I have never seen such a close knit group willing to help others out as much as I have seen people here do. Kudos to everyone!

I love all of you guys. I'm drinking right now, so be forewarned, this is going to be brutally long! LOL!
Everyone knows that I came from Cobra Island. But ever since I started coming here, this has been my second home. In the last year that I've been here, it's become one side of my life. What's great is that all my friends from over there are members here, so I still get to see them. I'm not just saying this...so forget I'm staff for a minute. I say this as a fan & collector. This board is the future of the online G.I.Joe community. So many guys my age and/or older are considered "the old schoolers". Whereas we will move on, it's you, the members here, who will carry the torch on for many years to come. I'm happy to have been a part of it and to have interacted with so many of you bums!
If I had to thank anyone in particular, I'd thank DESTRO first and foremost. He gave us this place, he gave me this opportunity and most of all, he's been an absolutely outstanding friend (awe!). I wish there were more that I could do for him, but like a true friend and stand up individual, he never asks. During my recent break up with my fiance, he's called me to see how I was doing before my own family has, man. That right there will always mean a lot to me. My mug is tipped to you, Big Guy. Thank You.
Next up is Echo, who must be feeling his feminine side with this thread, LOL! Echo has become one of the greatest friends I've never met. There are very few that I put in that category (apacolypse, Hydro-Viper & TheWyseOne to name a few). Tim, thanks for being there for me buddy and thanks for the wise words. I am not as wise as you would think, as your words have taught me a lot. Give yourself some credit there, Paesan.
That said, all the staff here are awesome. Shin, Razer, all of you guys. Thanks for being there for me and for this board. We all owe you one big time (which is why DeeFuzz can confirm, I will get you DRUNK! )
Damn dude, this can go on all day, LOL. I "love" all of you guys. My Michigan Network (with first and absolute credit going to Mr. Focus), and know what? Even the guys that I don't see eye to eye with here. You guys teach me something every day...patience! LOL, nah, I'm fudgin' with ya. or am I? dun Dun DUUUUUUUN.
So yeah...this as sappy as you'll ever see me. So copy and paste this schnit as it's INTERNET-FRIGGIN'-GOLD. Promise, you can sell it for at least $5 on eBay.
Now, I must finish my single man dinner & beer. ENOUGH OF THIS SAP-FEST.

first guy i have to thank, OUTBACK (who i never see anymore)...when i first came on the Hisstank scene, and was crying "Nooobuuuddy knooows the trouble iiiiiiiiiii see...." about not being able to find any product in stores, he sent me a welcome to the neighborhood gift hooded CC (who at the time was impossible for me to find) free of charge...that right there let me know i had come to the right place...and so many of you awesome fell'as have never let me forget why i love this place...
i can't even begin to list the names of you all who are constantly making me literally LOL...i think really, maybe, that is what i love the most...seems most dudes here have a GREAT sense of humor, and thats what makes it so fun...
and like you said Echo, so much selflessness...so many people willing to help others they've never met...a lot of trust here...
so i won't name names, cause even if you haven't helped me out directly, you've made me laugh, gave me advice, shared your thoughts, your work, and genuinely kept me entertained...
thanks to all, and to those i've helped, inspired, entertained, and been a friend too, you are welcome...
love (heh heh), eddie

I am still a newbie to a certain point, I still have a lot to prove to people on this board. I have never been this active in my other passion, star wars and I probilly never will. I too have been through a break up with my fiance and even though people really do not know me, being a part of this community has helped a lot. I would like to thank Echo for just asking how I was doing and YOUNGNJ1 for giving me my first "kill" in the gijoe game. There has been others such as Golob and Flint who was the joe leader for a round. I look forward to getting to know all you guys and I am proud to be a member of this site.

Well, i guess it is my turn to sound off. First off, i would like to thank the Mods and Administrators for making this site what it is today and for keeping it going. Without C.I.A.D., Destro, Shogi, Echo, Shin Densetsu, and all of the others, we would not be here today...
Also, i want to thank a few people individually...
First up, is Echo. What can i say. We were friends before we both became Mods, and we are still friends today. I can always count on him to help me out and he is always there to talk to. Although sometimes it is just pointless babbling...lol Just kidding ...
Another great friend i have met here would be Reznor. We have met up a few times and we throw alot of figures and vehicles eachothers way. Without him, i wouldn't have figured out my sig and alot of other things. He is truly one of my best friends...
BOMBSHELLMIKE... Well what can i say. This is one great tanker. After our first deal together, we have been keeping in contact and have been great friends. He even created a custom figure for my son when he was born. Now that is more than just a good deal between 2 hisstank members, that is friendship at it's best.
I also want to thank the many of you i have done business with, whether it be buying or selling...
Elite Force Cobra
You guys have shown me that it is possible to buy and sell here without the hassle of getting the short end of the stick...
Real quick, i want to thank the friends i have made on the GI Joe game thread. Money B, Golobulous, darthZartan, and GI Joanne. You guys still make the game fun...
Selling my entire collection... Check it out...
My feedback thread...
I have won over $500 worth of Amazon gift cards. This link will show you how...I have also won 4 $20 Target cards...
