There is no better season than this to express appreciation for all the people who make this community so lovely! Feel free to add your own posts to this thread! I will be posting things as I think of them throughout the month.
One thing I wanted to start with is the people who host shows. I love entering shows, and the show ring wouldn't exist without people to hold them! I keep records of all the my petz' show wins so tabulating this formidable count was simple but eye-opening! Since May, my petz have placed in 167 shows held by paranoiapaige, 165 held by Arie, 101 by commander, 53 by Alex@Gotham, 48 by Thor and 40 by Kayota.
Thank you all for hosting so many shows!!! I appreciate you!

;_; This is so sweet.
There's so many people I appreciate in the community, including Arie for always keeping things fun and funky, Thor for always being so friendly, smonikkims for always hosting unique and fun shows, Bec and Nostalgic for being breeding bosses and always pumping out unique babes, CatCreature for always making the best show off threads, and Rho , zan , gingerade , and Voncile for keeping my shows full!! Also commander and paige@rattlesnake for always running shows!!
And as always, thankful for Alex@Gotham and Ratqueen for keeping this place a float!!! I feel like i'm forgetting people but all in all, I appreciate all of you!! And it wouldn't be a community without you guys <3
What a great idea for a thread! I'm definitely also grateful for everyone who hosts shows, both formal and fun! It's been a real creative outlet for me in many ways, which has been super helpful during this terrible year <3
I've recently been very lucky to adopt so many gorgeous pups from lovely users in the community, either as freebies, trades, on TFM or through the current WW Advent. This is a forever growing collection but I'd love to share this little group pic of just some of them!! Being able to send files is also something I really appreciate about being a part of the PC!
So massive thank yous to Bunni , Rho , Willow , Kel , Lee @ December , Thor , Bec , Arie and to many more I've adopted from in the months I've been here! Playing with these beauties has been a lot of fun ^o^ and hopefully I'll eventually get them all listed on my crew site :3
Wow that's so many shows...! I've been slacking a bit in hosting (and judging) shows-- but I'm feeling appreciative.
I totally appreciate all those who have hosted shows AND those who enter too. Its a lot of work to keep track of points (bahahaha)-- and I find it overwhelming at times so I'm impressed by all ya'll who do it :) thank you!
And all those that breed adoption freebies here on RKC-- you are extremely generous for sharing these petz. And those that supply TFM/etc-- you keep these sites exciting and alive <3
And I love reading show offs and naturally raising threads. Thank you for taking the time to show off your petz and tag me when its someone I've bred 😭 it means so much to me.
This is such a great idea! I am thankful for a lot of people on here. Actually I'd say I'm thankful for everyone on here for keeping the petz community fun and active! I'm especially thankful for CatCreature for being such an amazing, fun, caring, awesome friend and for always being there for me. You also breed and hex the cutest things so that's great too! I also wanna thank Arie, Nostalgic, Gingerade, Thor, Rho, Bunni, smonikkims, paranoiapaige, commander, lee@december, Pinto, zan, and pretty much everyone really for everything they've done and for all the petz I've adopted from each of them! If I wrote why I am thankful for each and every one of you, it would take forever to read lol So thank you everyone for keeping the petz community alive and I hope you all have a merry Christmas and a happy new year! -Bec-
This is such a coincidence, because I've been meaning to make a 'daily gratitude' thread on here for everyone to post the things that they are grateful for each day or whenever the mood strikes them. I wanted to do this because there are so many times that I log on here and I just feel so overwhelmed with gratitude that this forum and community still exists. It's really been a heartwarming and fun escape for me. I always have the urge to post about it and thank everyone, but wasn't sure if it would be weird because I'm still getting a feel for the social norms etc for this place, haha. So when I logged on and saw this thread, I was like, "WOW! PERFECT! Clearly I'm not the only one feeling this way!" ^^
To begin, I really want to thank those of you who have tagged me already. I'm very surprised that you thought of me and I've had an impact on you. Especially because I only rejoined this community and found RKC a few weeks ago! It hasn't even been a month yet. So, wow, I'm very shocked and it has definitely inspired me to continue to help make this forum and community and fun and happy place to be ♡
So now, I'd like to give a few individual shoutouts:
Rho : Thank you Rho for always being so active and friendly in this community. Your petz website was the first one I saw when I rejoined and it just filled me with joy to see all the hard work you put into the content and design of it. Oberon is also the first pet I adopted from someone since 2002. It's so nice of you to have such lovely petz up for freebies on your site. It really encouraged me so send in an adoption form because the process seemed so easy and open to anyone. Also, thank you for always chiming in with lovely replies on threads, entering and creating shows to keep this community fun, and for adopting lots of petz from me. It's all so encouraging and inspiring. I can tell that you really want to keep this community fun and active for everyone! Thank you!!! ♡
gingerade : You have been so kind to me, Gin ♡ Thank you for being so helpful in emails, adopting petz from me, and allowing me to adopt your lovely sodapups and the new gingerbread variety. I get so excited to see your new layouts, ideas, graphics, and hexies. You've very much inspired me to get back into hexing and to think of some cute and fun exclusive breeds for my new website, Funfetti, that I'm currently working on right now. You're always active and always so helpful to everyone. Thanks for being an amazing example for this community! ♡
Thor : Thank you Thor for always being so joyful and adopting so many petz from me! It also meant a lot to me that you complimented my graphics ^^ I'm always so happy to see how active you are and it inspires me to continue to post and make content for the community. Thank youuuuuu ♡♡♡
Arie : When I came across your Persian giveaway post, I absolutely fell in love with your March Persian hexies. I was a little reluctant to apply, because I figured you'd never choose me because I was so new to the community. Well, I went ahead and applied anyway, and you ended up choosing me! Thank you so much for that. It really made my day and encouraged me to stick around ^^ I also find your site SO inspiring. It's wonderful to see how many content you have on there! Amazing!!
stancymckatt : STANCY! I can't believe after almost 2 decades we reconnected on here. It still blows my mind. I'm also still recovering from the shock that you have my hexed Cremelo breed file and sent it over to me. I never dreamed I'd ever see that again! It honestly means SO much to me to have that important piece of my past from the old days in the pc. It's such a special childhood memory for me, so thank you SO much for preserving it for 18 years. That's insane. I will forever be grateful to you for it. So I just want to thank you, for 1) being such a wonderful friend to me back when we were kids and 2) for still being here, reaching out to me, and STILL being such a LOVELY person after all this time! ♡
Lee @ December : Thank you Lee, for rejoining the petz community again. I'm so happy to see another person rejoin again around the time I did. Visiting your site is so fun and I'm so inspired by you to continue working on my site as well. Thank you for being so creative and friendly to everyone!
CatCreature : LILYYYY thank you so much for being such a lovely friend to me! You're always so kind and thoughtful. Thanks for including me in things (hehe) and for supporting my breeding/adoptions. I love how chatty you are, it's always so fun to read your messages. Thanks for putting so much time and effort into making this community such a wonderful place for everyone ♡
smonikkims : I'm so happy to read posts from you! They are always so positive and keep me coming back to RKC. I love how active and kind you are. You're such a gem to have here in the PC ♡ Thank you for all the fun and creative shows you come up with! They're so fun to enter! I'm also excited for the Christmas Cards... it was one of the very first threads I posted in when I joined ^^ It made me feel so happy and welcome to be a part of something so fun right when I joined!
Bec : Thanks for keeping the community active with all your posts. I'm also happy to see 'likes' on here from you, and I'm very grateful to have you adopt from me. You keep this community so FUN and you're an inspiration to us all! ♡
paranoiapaige : Huuuuge thank you for all the shows that you run! You're such a big part of keeping this community fun for everyone, so THANK YOU so much for that!
pinto: All of your content is such an inspiration to me! Thank you for sharing so many fantastic hexing resources. I am in love and obsessed with the gorgeous hexies you create! I'm hopeful to own one someday, hehe. Also, thank you for running the advent over on WW. I can tell that you've put a TON of hardwork into it and it's making SO many peoples holidays a whole lot better ^^
Ratqueen : THANK YOU FOR RUNNING THIS AMAZING FORUM! You're really making so many peoples lives a whole lot better and happier because of it ^^
I barely even know how to reply to this thread because I have so much appreciation for so many people...I hardly know where to start! xD It's why I always made such crazy showoffs, because people are always super nice about sharing and letting me adopt, and there's so little I can do in return...I just wanted a way to show people how much I care about what they do! (Even though I've had to drastically tone it down with showoffs lately to spare some sanity...I worked on those things almost non-stop every single day, and it really drains you after a while!)
But Bec , I really think you're one of the longest standing friends I've had here...you and midnightwolf ! (And Heather even if she's never around anymore. x'DD) You all mean a lot to me, and are some of the first people I think of when I think of the Petz Community, because you were just always there!
Bec, I love that we have a lot in common, and that we're the kinds of people who don't really care about amounts...we can just email casually and drop a bombshell of breeding leftovers in each others' inboxes and be all "You want any? Take whoever you like!" xDD I have thousands from you, I know you must have thousands from me, and it seems like every other pet I bring out in-game is from you, to the point it's just getting hilariously ridiculous! xD It's been fun knowing you, and I've said this before, but I hope it just keeps on going!
MidnightWolf has honestly taught me a lot, and made me a much stronger person. I'm very shy and anxious, and little things people did could -really- mess me up bad for at least a full day. I'd talk to him when I felt like I was falling apart over nothing, and he'd talk me through it, and tell me how to not let it get to me. Over the years, I still reference the things he told me, and I still use his advice to remind myself how to stay strong. And it's actually -working- and that's not something many people have successfully been able to teach me. Any sign of strength I show where I would have crumbled before is all thanks to him.
Nostalgic I've loved having as my personal Pokemon buddy, who I can go to with anything Pokemon and either gush about or get help/advice with. And even if I want to talk about movies, she's got some pretty great opinions there too! And let's not even get into her breeding skills...I don't know how EVERY PET she breeds is magically unique and beautiful, but I literally want everything she breeds. xDD
Thor We may not talk on a regular basis, but it seems like we keep coming up with things to say, and we just pick right up where we left off, and we just...talk and laugh so easily together, it feels like we've been friends longer than we actually have! And even if it's something simple like sharing pictures or stories of our Petz, we always have a good time whenever we talk!
paranoiapaige , We don't seem to talk as often as I do with some of the other people on this list...but just like Nostalgic, you've always bred AMAZING Petz, and have been super sweet about letting me take in as many as I want...and well, you've been really sweet about pretty much whatever we have talked about! xD I guess I'd describe my current relationship with you as, "I don't know her too well, but I definitely like her!" xDDD
Which also brings me to Bunni ! xD We only just recently met, but I have a similar frame of mind with you! Any time we -have- spoken, you just seem so sweet and I find myself liking you a lot already, and hopefully we can become friends! I've had fun with the minor exchanges we've had so far, and look forward to chatting some more! <3
smonikkims and Magica , I love your showoffs a lot! You guys have a way of focusing on certain Petz to the point where I feel like I'm getting to know them too, and...I dunno, it just feels like you're welcoming us into your homes and letting us be a part of your family in a way. Something about it is very inviting, and it's never a dull read when one of you posts! And you've both been really nice and fun to talk to...and Magica, I -still- owe poor Magnus a playdate at my house!! xDD
Ratqueen I also appreciate you a lot more than you probably know. xDD I know I asked about a thousand mini questions when I was temporarily part of the mod team here, but you never got impatient. You were always so kind and understanding, and never gave me the feeling I was being as annoying as I felt like I probably -would- have been. xDD I consider you a friend, and I'm so, so grateful for all the help, kindness and patience you've given me. I really do feel safe and welcome here, and a lot of that is because of you!
There's...so many more people, but...as you can see, I'm a chatterbox. x'DDD I need to stop before I make my way around to -everybody- on RKC. LOL
But I'm definitely full of love and appreciation for so many of you...otherwise I definitely wouldn't have stuck around as long as I have! <3
You are all so kind! Thank you all for helping to keep the Petz community alive and thriving! I'm sure I don't have to remind everyone how crummy this year has been, but Petz has been a welcome distraction for me--but it wouldn't be even half as much fun without the wonderful community surrounding it. So huge thanks and appreciation to ALL of you who keep this community vibrant and fun!
Today I want to thank Alexzander for helping me on discord when I was having trouble posing my labs. The lab king came to my rescue! And I also want to thank leashykitty for her sweet presence. Leash you are always so quick to offer a supportive word and you are such an encouragement. ❤️❤️❤️!
inkpaw: just joined, hi everyone! c: it's really cool to see the petz community still strong here

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha
Mar 28, 2021 13:28:37 GMT -5
Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.
Mar 30, 2021 14:37:35 GMT -5
Thor: Ooo thank you Arie! I'ma try this and also welcome new folks!! Nice to meet you

Ratqueen: moonkiddo, please post your Petz questions in the Petz Talk & Help board. Also read the rules to use the Shoutbox (this is not a chatroom, as it's very limited and only shows 20 posts).
