    Default Kudos Thread - Some Really TOP NOTCH stuff on the Board Lately!

    Hey Guys, I just wanted to note that I have observed, and participated in some great on-going conversations on the board lately, and its been alot of fun. Kudos!

    I will occasionally go check out the other Raptors Boards to spy and just see what they've got going on, and I tell you what; the solid, and positive, contributions we get from SO many people is unmatched.
    And its all done without an OUNCE of disrespect ... toward anyone directly on the board anyway. hah
    Really an impressive feat.

    Have seen alot of new 'faces' around the board, which has only contributed massively to an already stellar forum.
    I know we say it all the time, but I just wanted to say it again - this Board is TOP NOTCH.
    Keep up the good work Fellas!

    (cue corny compliment) We couldn't do it without people like yourself Joey. In all sincerity, we just couldn't. So thank you and thank the majority of you for making the staff's job here easy.

    This forum would be a lot more fun if JV turns out to be a dominant perennial all star... make it happen Doc.

    In all seriousness, I am a member on maybe half a dozen other sports forums, and this one is hands down the best. A few weeks back, Apollo asked people to brainstorm ideas to make the forum better, I wrote a response (to have a chat for the draft), and the next time I checked the "everything raptors" section, I saw the newest thread was the draft thread (that pretty much was exactly what I was asking for). I do not even think anyone even saw that post I had written yet, it was just the people on this forum were thinking ahead. That is something that rarely happens other places.

    You all are doing a solid job.

    there's a staff here!? Holy fuck!

    seriously, though you guys do do a great job of like blending it all together. I mean there's never any difference in conversation towards different users.

    i guess what I mean to say is...ah, what the hell! take it away, aretha!!

    Man I love this place *sniff*

    I came here from the Raptors Clubhouse on ESPN not expecting much, but man was I wrong!

    Although I can't say the same about the comment section in the articles... needs some moderators... a lot of "characters" down there... *vomits*

    Ya, that's watched by a different group of fellas. None of the staff from the forums with the exception of Arsenalist.

    Thanks for coming to join here Tesla. Glad to have you aboard. Spread the word.

    The day I googled "Toronto Raptors Blog" and clicked the RR link has been a game changer for me in terms of connecting with other basketball enthusiasts and learning a lot more about the NBA game. If it wasn't for the raptors republic I wouldn't know anything about advanced metrics, nor would I have found other useful sites like ESPN Trademachine, hoopshype, basketball-reference.com or 82games.com as well as a wealth of nba news.

    This really is one of the best fan sites around. No that I'm officially an OKC fanboy (raps are still my number 1 love), I've been trying to find a forum like this one on the Thunder to keep me in the loop. Haven't found anything close.

    My only disappointment is the lack of PhD Steve's podcasts... used to really look forward to them every week (on Wednesday's?). Well that and jokes, we can always use more jokes!

    I've been remiss in not jumping onto this thread earlier. Thank God for RR and the online crew of brainiacs who moderate, post and contribute. Makes the Dog Days liveable and really makes sense of the season.

    And yeah, I forgive everyone for the crazy trade suggestions.
