This weekend, Bearville Rainy Days had a contest asking members to share why they loved BRD, and I’m happy to announce that the grand prizewinner was Princess! 🙂
Princess won a raspberry HPT for her entry, which the judges both thought was amazingly written! Here it is:
“I love BRD for many reasons, the one of the most important being the fact that it has allowed me to grow. I used to be a real dunce at trading, and I guess I still am now, but certainly not as much. Everyone here, especially the well-versed TPs have helped me in my journey to rarity. I guess my English has, in a way, improved as well. I used colloquial speech much too often when I first joined. But because I joined a forum, I began to feel self-conscious and didn’t want to end up a laughingstock, so I felt an urge to change the way I typed. And I did.
Another reason I love BRD is because I actually have responsibilities. Being a moderator, I have to make sure the forum doesn’t go all drama like BVC and other BV forums. In the eleven months I’ve been here, I’ve already been promoted three times – one of the greatest achievements of my life. I get this proud, tingly feeling every time I lock a topic. Just knowing that the admins trust me enough to make me a moderator makes me feel honoured.
Lastly, the most significant reason I love BRD is because I’ve made many new friends. Some of the members on the forum make much better listeners than other people I know IRL. They’ve always been there for me. Whenever I’m whining about something, or seeking advice – they never turn down the opportunity to listen to my rambling. I know I have flaws, and I appreciate that everyone here accepts me despite that fact.”
Please stay tuned for more contests on BRD! Our posting contest is also nearing its end date – help us get to 25,000 posts before the end of November!
