In no particular order:
To the AAMS, Alliance Branch and Horde Branch, for their support, advertising, and translations during the Ashenvale Rebuilding Event. In particular I want to thank Vasilia, Andelia and Verogoth for promoting this and our server in the World's End Tavern forums.
To Pia Presidium, most especially Gentyl and Crayautchin, for putting together their events and aiding me in running mine.
To Genevra, in all her forms, for showing up to every event, as well as hosting two of her own. Your support was not lost on me.
To Alisma, for throwing together a last minute Alliance Pride Parade, and ending the Spring Festival in a successful bang.
Also to the Ishnu Por Ah, Da Doctas, and Homeland for their contributions to the Horde Spring Festival earlier in the year.
And finally, to everyone who in some way participated! Running an event is one thing, but no event could exist without your presence.
We had more than 100 people show up throughout the Alliance Festival week, and the turnouts of individual events ranged from 10 to 25 individual players. At least 5 new applications to my guild (AAMS) alone, 3 non-RPers and around 7 casual RPer/raiders who stopped to give us their time of day, and as much as 10 new people to the server, all attracted by the events. It got to the point I could no longer keep track of all the new faces I was seeing! Now our server is in the top three for preferred RP servers for the USA, because of some hard work put in by a dedicated few, and the participation of many.
I'm proud to be a part of this community. Give yourselves a pat on your back, and have my most sincere thanks!
