In the spirit of Christmas, I wanted to start a thread that would allow people to express their appreciation to the members that made ATS both memorable and enjoyable for them over the last year. Be it friend or foe, take this time to let your appreciation be known to those that inspire, challenge and open our eyes to help us see things in a new light.

To start proceedings, I would like to thank:

internos (FSME)
Your knowledge, attention to detail and gentle nature never ceases to inspire me! You are a true gentleman and a fine friend! One of ATS's finest!

An intelligent and articulate lassy from Down Under. A little bit of naughtiness goes a long way with me! Thanks for all the laughs and for being a truly great mate!

The best from the west. Thanks for keeping it real and speaking your mind! Your skepticism, logic and demeanor serve you well mate!

OzWeatherman (FSME)
Keep hitting them with logic bombs and facts. You own the climate debate mate! Hope your holidays are full of sunshine sans chemtrails!

You are a sweetheart! Thanks for your friendship, trust, all the U2U's and fantastic DVD's.

jkrog08 (FSME)
You bring dignity back to the field of UFOlogy. No mean feat! ATS needs more people like you my friend! A true star in anyone's universe!

My mate from across the pond. I always enjoy reading your posts. Sometimes volatile (like myself)... but always insightful! You are one passionate aussie and you rock!

Barmy Army... Barmy Army! Bluppers... your measured responses, kindness and vast array of knowledge is admirable. I'm proud to call you friend!

My feline friend! No one deserved a promotion more than you... and I cheered aloud! Thanks for your sense of fair play (and keeping us all in check). ATS is safe in your hands! A model Mod!

Intelligence, beauty and 'oh so cool'. You are always making valuable and enlightening contributions on ATS and I look forward to each post! I'm proud to call you friend! See you on MySpace... Besos & Besitos XxXx

Last But By No Means Least:
Finally... To Springer, SkepticOverlord and Co. Thanks for making ATS the best place to be on the Internet. May 2010 see ATS grow to even greater heights!

Seasons Greetings To Everyone!

Wow, I don't know what to say my friend, I am truly humbled. Thank you so much for the kind words and I am glad I can do what little part I do to help ufology and contribute to ATS. I really don't like narrowing down all the great members on ATS but for the sake of the thread I will give ten in no particular order:

  • internos- What can I say, he is synonymous with UFOs on ATS. His great knowledge and dedication make him the "godfather" of ATS ufology in my opinion. Truly someone I look up to.

  • phage- Surprise, I bet phage would never think I would select him but his knowledge in such a wide range of fields keeps ATS legitimacy in check, I am thankful for having such a knowledgeable member around.

  • ArMaP- Always the gentleman, ArMaP never loses his cool and always has something of substance to contribute. He is a great asset to the UFO forum with his imaging skills, cool headiness, and logic.

  • Skyfloating- Some of the most classic ATS threads come from this guy, if there was a "ancient extraterrestrial expert" then he would be it. His threads and posts beam of professionalism and his research is second to none, as is his open-mindedness. You always know when you see a Skyfloating UFO thread that it is going to be epic, all of his have been memorable. Truly an asset...

  • ravenshadow13- She has almost single handily brought back dignity to the cryptozoology forum. Her knowledge is scientific and she is most definitely a "go to person" on anything cryptozoological or zoological.

  • TheMythLives- Truly a myth, his "Case Reviewed" threads are a staple of ATS now, in my opinion. His research and passion is extreme, I can't wait till he gets some time off from college to come back and make some more epic threads in the GenCon forum.

  • schrodingers dog- This guy is EVERYWHERE and always has something witty, philosophical, and productive to add to any conversation.

  • zazzafraz- A truly kind heart, very insightful, smart, and all around caring. She has started to post A LOT more on ATS, and I will tell you the quality of ATS has only gone UP. I am thankful that I have gotten to know her in the last few months.

  • zorgon- The true manifestation of ATS in my humble opinion. Zorgon's dedication to the pursuit of truth (as seen by postings on here and his website) is second to none. Some truly astounding finds have been made by him and his team. Zorgon always makes sure the exciting and unknown side of ufology and conspiracy theory stay in sight.

  • OzWeatherman - ATS's very own meteorologist, and a witty one at that. Oz is on the forefront of all climate issues and conspiracies and quick to apply witty logic to the poor people who cross his path with bunk UFO threads, Nibiru, or chemtrails to name a few. Oz has made QUITE a few memorable posts on the boards and I for one am glad he is a member and my friend.


    I am sure I missed quite a few so I am sorry if I did, those are just some that came to mind first and foremost. Of course every member of ATS has an important contribution and part to play in one form or another. Everyone is great in my books.

    And what would ATS be without our very own InfaRedMan?!? I can NOT imagine ATS without you, your cool avatars, and witty comments my friend. You are definitely a staple member on here.

    Of course ATS wouldn't be what it is today without SO, Springer, and the whole staff. So a BIG THANK YOU to you guys. ATS AND ALL OF IT'S MEMBERS ARE GREAT!.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone!

    For his Hilarity and sarcastic/dry responses... kinda like myself in that respect... and i like sarcasm and dry wit and also his no-holds-barred attitude and great knowledge and also the ability to spot a BS'er too.

    Helps a lot on here.

    We're alike in that respect.


    For the random hilarity and also the sarcasm and fun he brings to the boards.

    A great BIG thank you to all ATS members.

    Without you ATS wouldn't be the #1 Conspiracy Site on the net.

    We ROCK !!!!

    posted on Dec, 9 2009 @ 12:03 AM
    Thankyou so much for the mention IRM, it means a lot to me that you consider me a mate and take the time to read my posts. Likewise mate, I take a special portion of my daily time on ATS to peruse any posts you have made and 9 times out of 10 I don't bother replying because you have said exactly what I was going to say!

    I was thinking of also creating a list of specific people to thank, but honestly there are way too many to count. I will, however, focus a little on all Aussie members of ATS. I would like to give a big WELL DONE and a pat on the back for all of you Aussies who have come to ATS and helped make a little niche for us here. I honestly don't think I have felt more at home on an International Site. So well done Aussies, keep up the good work!

    And to everyone else on ATS, Friends AND Foes - although I may seem to come across harshly sometimes, and can be a little "in your face", I would like to thank each and every single one of you for helping me to open my eyes and to Deny Ignorance. Without you all, ATS would never be as big, far-reaching and contain as wide a variety of topics as it does.

    I couldn't think of a better way to complete this post than to leave you with some insightful, and some funny, quotes about Christmas....

    Mail your packages early so the post office can lose them in time for Christmas. ~Johnny Carson

    Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.
    ~Author unknown, attributed to a 7-year-old named Bobby

    ....and what better way to finish off but with a quote from the immortal Benny Hill....

    Roses are reddish
    Violets are bluish
    If it weren't for Christmas
    We'd all be Jewish.

    ~Benny Hill

    Hehe, my pleasure mate. You were one of the first people I befriended here on ATS and I do not regret it one little bit

    Also, I couldn't think of a better way to spread a little Chrissy cheer than to provide a little humour for everyone
    To make people smile is the best pressie I could think of!

    posted on Dec, 9 2009 @ 05:30 AM
    What a great idea IRM!

    So we'll start off with you!

    You always post with a level head but still manage to say what needs to be said, even if it's calling a spade a spade.
    Your humour is also a welcome and well timed addition to many a thread.

    Another spade is a spade kinda guy (What's with us Aussies and our spades?), also a guy who knows his stuff, from sundogs to Iridescence in pileus cloud to keeping those chemtrailers on their toes, couldn't do it without you!

    Words can't describe how much respect I have for him.
    Thorough, intelligent and likes the F1

    What's awesome is that he's just a U2U away for any of those head scratching UFO threads.

    Sassy, smart, funny and Aussie, is there anything better?
    Even if she did recently spam me with dozens of (crappy) UFO vids

    Stay snazzy zazzy!

    Always love chatting to you, great sense of humour, smart, sexy and has good taste in avatars!
    Hope the new year improves for you!

    Love chatting to you too, another smart and funny female (I'm seeing a theme here
    Thanks for all the support and avatars, you rock!

    My mutter mate!
    Another switched on fellow and from what I've heard a helleva security guard!
    Bring on the new year mate and hopefully we'll have that beer!

    ANOTHER smart lass, tremendous respect for you, love the music videos you send me, sorry I haven't sent many your way lately, work has been a nightmare!

    Have a good chrissy you!

    A boy in a dress
    Another mutter mate, you crack me up big time buddy, a vivid imagination, I swear you need to write a book or something, it's a wasted talent on mutter.

    Another mutter mate, very dry sense of humour and that works to perfection dude

    Keep it up mate!

    There are no doubt others but I forgot, but if you're on my friends list, you're there for a reason, whatever it is you do...Keep doing it!

    posted on Dec, 9 2009 @ 08:25 AM
    Oh, oh, can I go next?

    In no particular order:

    A Boy in a Dress
    Thanks mate for the avatar, for the long chat sessions and epic tale-telling on Mutter. I am looking forward to your first book release, which I am sure will come sooner than later!

    Yo' tha man King Karl! KARLABUNGAAA!!!
    Mutter just ain't the same without you. You sir crack me up!

    Not only an original Mutterfuggah, but also one of the main contributors to ATS/BTS when it comes to valid inputs and level-headed aspects. I have much respect for you and your oppinion always matters to me.

    And now for the Mods:

    Long time, no see. I hope you are alright out there, where ever you are.
    Things you wrote to me made me feel very happy. I am very thankful.

    Do you ever sleep? Is there one event or discovery that you won't know of within 10 seconds of it's public release? How do you do it?
    Anyhow, ATS is happy to have you!

    All time favourite
    Wishing you all the best!

    Crackeur, SkepticOverlord and the rest of "the best staff on the internet"
    Please, keep ATS alive and healthy for all eternity.
    This place is by far the best forum on the net, not a doubt in my mind.
    Thank you so very, very much!

    If any one else feels neglected right now, I am deeply sorry for that. Don't take it too seriously, it's just a stupid list. These things tend to be very sensetive to some...I know it is to me at least

    You know I love each and every one of you, from the depth of my Swedish heart!)

    posted on Dec, 9 2009 @ 09:52 AM
    This is a difficult thread to post in.
    For without all of you, there would be no ATS, no place to come and make friends and do all we do here.
    I knew this place was for me day 1....
    Though many friends have come and gone there will always be those who stick out in my mind.
    We all come here for various reasons, and it's sad when you lose contact with someone here and you don't know why and you hope they are ok.
    There are those of you whom I follow for your intellect, your wit, or just because you make me smile when I need it.
    Without all of you..It would be a lonely life.

    So to my BTS Ladies....I love you all..we support each other amongst the testosterone that drives this board. A toast to you my dears....

    For the all know which ones are the most special to me and I need not openly post it.
    For the hugs and the tears throughout the years, and being the shoulder I needed whenever...and for just being my best friend, yes you know who you are...I can't make it through a day without you. Ya'll are the best man.
