    Thumbs up June 2012 Winner MOTM at OrchidTalk

    Every month I get the pleasure of reading all the wonderful comments our members enter about each other as they nominate one another for the honor of Member of the Month. This month, you folks made the decision very difficult. There were so many great members nominated and so much participation in the nomination process. (I was truly overwhelmed.) Ultimately, your votes choose the winner for June and I am thrilled to announce that Opaline (Matt) from the UK is the Member of the Month for June 2012!! Congratulations Matt. You truly embody our community mission of 'Bringing people together to grow orchids better'. Almost every single person that nominated Matt commented on how helpful he was to the members posting in this community. Matt - you are a winner through and though. Thanks for participating here with us and for being a kind and helpful person.

    Here are a few comments typical of what our members had to say when nominating Matt:
    "Opaline always answers E1's questions. He is caring and helpful."

    "Always, Always! Helpful."


    "He is a helpful and generous person who has helped me out on many occasions."

    "... people deserve this honor, but Matt [opaline] is a champ. He should know how helpful he is here in OTF. Next ..."


    It is easy to see why Matt has been chosen as our Member of the Month! Please help me congratulate him.

    cheers,
    BD

    Thank you so much to all of you for the acknowlegement also all of OT aswell. Lovely suprize! Forums never survive or even maintain a good standard or reputation without unity 50/50 give & take often with a high turnover of people and distorted continuity who come and then go. Very important to reciprocate as a social duty and courtesy because of one thing I know for sure - its been a very useful resource for me and saved lots of pennies which go on new plant purchases and not down the drain!
