Dear Mata,

I'm writing this just to say 'thank you' for everything that you've done. As we've all said so many times, this forum really is a family and it couldn't have existed without you. I can't put in words how happy i am that i'm part of a forum like this. This place is the 'home-away-from-home' of sorts for so many people (including me). I've met so many great people here that i couldn't even begin to list all of you. And i would never have met any of you were it not for you, your amazing animations, and the forum itself.

You're an animating genius, an amazing person in so many ways, and i can't even begin to thank you enough for this forum and how well you've run it. Merry Christmas, Mata! smile.gif

Happy Holidays, Mata. Hope you have a great winter season with those you care about most deeply. Plus everything that gerbil said. I know I'm only a noob here, but I already feel like I'm part of the Matazone family, and it's a really nice place to be.

i was going to write mata a thank you email. i guess you beat me to it.

ok, well there is so much i owe to mata. for one, i basically owe him my life, for without his forums i would never have met anyone who cared, and without that i probably wouldnt have gone on.
also, i owe him my current joy. without your forums, mata, i would never have met any of these truly wonderful and awesome people. This really is my family, and i love you all so very much.

and there is so much more i could say! but for now ill just cut it short, for lack of knowing how to put my gratitude into words, if it is at all possible.

thank you mata. we love you.

Aye!

I'm not stylish enough to write it in email, but I owe Mata one of the biggest thankyous ever. Always patiently returning my silly PMs, offering some of the kindest words when Dayan went away.. it's been one rough year, but being around the people of this forum has eased it so perfectly.

You're a genius an' you know it, so clap your hands. Nyeh?

Merry Crim'my(Easier and funner to say), Mata. And condomwrapperhearts! <333333333333

I wish there was some way I could say my gratitude in words for giving me all of this, Mata, but i've never really been good at these things, so i'll end it quickly:

Thank you. For the family, love, and curation of boredom. tongue.gif

I know you already said that the love and respect we feel for you is mutual, Mata, and I'm gonna say "thank you" for that right now, too. smile.gif

Were it not for us, these forums wouldn't be what they are. If not for you, these forums wouldn't even be here, nor would we have incredibly cool mods to run them, or the freedom of expression and sense of security that comes from you and those mods meting out fair justice to those who threaten the safety and sanity of these forums.

So thanks not only to Mata, but to everyone who's made these forums the great place they are!!!!

Thank you, Mata. I'm not good at putting thoughts into words, but because of this place I have become a better person and met so many great people. Despite having been here only, well whaddaya know, exactly one month, I think wouldn't be who I am today had I never come here. Again, I thank you. I truly hope that the Matazone community lasts longer than I do. Happy holidays, everyone.

You're all very lovely for saying so, and you've made a slightly tipsy web-designing person very happy. I wouldn't be able to run this place without my mod team, who are all great and utterly deserving of loads of respect and in turn we wouldn't have half as much fun running this place if you all weren't so wonderful. I may have put this place together but they are the ones that help it stay that way and you all are the people that keep it that keep it there.

Season's happiness to you all. Thanks for taking you time out to write in this thread. I look forward to a great year with you all in 2004.

As usual, I'm rather late on the draw, but you know I love and appreciate you as well, Mata. Thank you for your crazy animations, and, most of all, this place. It's really become a part of me. Hope you had a pleasant holiday! happy.gif

Don't worry Sarah I'm late as well. laugh.gif

Dear Mata,
Thanks for being such a great guy as well as a talented individual who creates series of entertainment on the internet for us to enjoy. The animations only make up a little of what makes you special. They brought the majority of us here together, and they are true animated genius.

But you also created this wonderful forum for us to gather on and make new friends through. Never before have I been in a place that let me feel like I could be truly me without having to worry about too many people having problems with it. This place is like no other place on the internet or on the planet if you ask me. And without you and your own open and accepting ways, I don't think this place could have become even 1/1000 of the way that it is.

Thank you Mata for creating this place, your animations, and the opportunity to get to know so many great individuals.

I'm not feeling particularly eloquent right now, so I'll just say thank you for making this place. Without it I wouldn't have met some of the best people I've ever known...and I would have missed out on many laughs caused by your animations. smile.gif

Buh. It's well past Christmas, but as I haven't been here (oh woe is me, nailed high upon the Cross of Retail), I feel the need to throw in my twopenn'orth.

Mata, you are truly a solid gold, A-grade geezer. Your site is tremendous, you keep a tightly-run yet friendly forum, and you are one of the kindest, most interesting and truly awe-inspiring people I've ever met.

Hope your Christmas was a good one, and here's to an excellent new year for you and your loved ones.

Word.
