I’ve received an amazing response within the community and I wanted to share some of those things with everyone.  Here is a list of awards and notable mentions that I’ve been fortunate enough to receive both personally and for the site.

It has been a wonderful experience so far.  I’m thankful for all the personal awards, accomplishments and experiences.  I’m so very appreciative of the fact that so many gamers have enjoyed themselves here.  I’m giving everyone a virtual pat on the back with this.  Just imagine me patting you on the back as you read this.

Below you’ll find the link to the accomplishment and then next to it, the person/company/group responsible or related to it.
