So, I decided that I was going to start a thread to serve two purposes. A nod to helpful people, and hopefully a place where people can share stories about those who took a bit of their time in an attempt to reach out a supportive hand and make this server a better place for all of us by setting up positive examples.
So here is how this works. This thread will be a place where you can give credit to someone's good deeds. They don't need to know about this post, they don't even need to know the forums exist.
The only rule is that it can't be a fellow guild member. Lets try to avoid girlfriends/boyfriends too if possible.
I'm not sure if this type of thread will function on our server's forums but I wanted to give it an honest effort to helpfully show how much we all appreciate those who take the time to be a little better than we ourselves sometimes can be.
I'll open this up by giving a nod to Bludru, an alliance side feral druid. He actually inspired me to create this thread by his extremely patient demeanor whenever I've had the pleasure of dealing with him. One of those people that tends to be calm in situations where you want to rage at people, and never has a negative or harsh word to say about someone when it comes to raiding or grouping.
Hopefully there are more people out there that have stories or people they'd like to give a nod. I hope that when we voice our opinions about these people who seem to be positive influences on the server we can take a good look at our own attitudes and improve them. I have a feeling blade's edge is a much better place to be than we sometimes give it credit for if we just change outlook a tiny bit!
