One of the great things about the Collective is that, particularly I think with the addition of Discord and real-time conversations, it's given many of our veteran members who, perhaps, way back when had a tendency to come and go intermittently (myself included to an extent), the opportunity to form some real, solid roots as part of our community. There are so many members who have been around for just as long as I have but that I've only been lucky enough to really get to know over the course of the last year or so. The Member of the Month we have chosen to kick off 2018 is one such member.
So, where do I begin? Usually, I would start with a nice spiel about the member as a person but with this particular Member of the Month, I know that's going to give the game away too soon! So, their RP contributions! This member is a pretty prolific RP'er indeed and is currently involved in a number of RPs including but not limited to: Dead Days, A Journey Through Time and Space and Wizarding World at War to name just a few.
However, this member is, perhaps, best known for being very friendly, something that is quite clearly demonstrated not only by their frequent appearance in the Introductions board making sure that our new members feel immediately welcomed to the forum but also in the way that they handle themselves in Discord on a more day-to-day basis. This member is lovely, engaging, funny (though not always intentionally) and, what they lack in geography skills, they more than make up for with countless other endearing qualities that have all culminated in this member becoming an absolute key pillar of our little RPGC community. I honestly cannot imagine a Collective without her.
Perhaps most importantly of all, she is a key player in the quest to take down the boys over in the Games board. I'm not actually just slowly handing out Member of the Month titles to my ladies-in-arms, I promise. Pure coincidence!
And, if all of that hasn't quite clearly given it away, it's with a great deal of pleasure that I announce and congratulate our January/February Member of the Month...
