Thank you guys, SO MUCH, for being willing to deal with what some chat channels can often devolve into. 

I would find that the most odius and thankless task in the world.  "Herding Cats" doesn't even begin to describe it.

 

I have, in fact, moderated chat channels before.  I'll pass on doing it ever again.  Kudos to anyone who knows the grief involved and steps up to do it anyway.

While I don't know what things look like from their side right now, it's certainly seems to my perspective that the Devs and GMs have been getting quite a workout lately on the forums.

Keep on keeping on, you [insert appropriate and acceptable euphemistic personal title noun here]!

 

Also; special thanks to @GM Miss.  We should have thrown you a little party in honour of your past work, now that you're taking a break for a bit.   

Then again; it's not too late!  Is there anything you'd like from us?

To everyone on the Homecoming team THANK YOU! for everything you have done and are doing.  I love this game.  I have been hooked on MMO's since my brother got me started on EQ back in 2000 and this game is still one of my favorites.  I was crushed when they closed down and I monitored all of the projects and COH Titan Forums (mainly the Hail Mary thread) hoping like crazy that somehow some way this game or something very much like it could be brought back.  It wasn't looking good.  For years...

 

Then HOMECOMING!  

 

I am and will be forever grateful to you all for everything you have done.  As volunteers you have not only brought back CoX but have also done it incredibly professionally.  It's been very impressive and amazing to me.  I was a senior software engineer at a major worldwide software company for a long time and I know how much work and time goes into even making minor changes and  just day to day maintenance.  On top of that you are all so very helpful in game and on the forums.

 

I'm probably babbling on but really really you guys are the best!  Just the fact that I can play this wonderful game again is nothing short of a miracle.  I'd like to buy you all a beer and shake your hand in person and say "thanks!".

 

THANK YOU!

Jim

I felt like I didn’t need to say anything; anything I would have said was already said. I was going to just read this thread and then go back to browsing the forum.

 

Then it hit me: I’m browsing this forum, which wouldn’t be here if City of Heroes weren’t back. That mere fact kind of floored me. After years being gone, my favorite game truly is here.

 

CoH was a refuge for me during difficult times, and when it was gone, that left a gaping hole. I’m now going through the hardest time of my life; the fact that City of Heroes and its community is back means more than words can say.

 

So thank you to all the GMs, for everything you do - both publicly and behind the scenes - to keep things up and running here at Homecoming. You’re all heroes to me.

Special thanks to @GM Impervium and everyone else on the Homecoming Team for being mature, cool, level-headed, and respectful in regard to that recent topic.

I appreciate your approach on that particular matter, as it's such a potential powder keg.  I realize the community is not really able to openly discuss that topic in depth, so seeing that thread being allowed to remain open as long as it did was really encouraging to me.

   Ok first off, thank you @TemporalVileTerror for creating this post. One should always appreciate what one gets in life, as it could always be worse then it is. So expressing yourself with simple gratitude, even if its just a simple "thanks", should always be done. And you started this thread, so good job. 🙂

   With that said, I just wanted to post a few things here in relation to giving thanks to all the GM's and other people who have put so much time, effort, and yes love into bringing back this amazing game. So without further adu... some poems for you GM's (and players too)... 😃

 

      A Day Will Come
      Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

A day will come in every life,
When appreciation is rendered.
And this should be taken seriously,
And given with love and tender.

 

Anyone who deserves appreciation,
Must have done something great.
So share with them the way you feel,
And always treat them right.

 

But keep in mind that appreciation,
Should be given again and again.
If you truly appreciate,
You'll remind them how great they've been.

 

Do something special to thank the ones,
Who've made a difference to you.
But don't forget to thank them again,
For everything they do.

------------------------------------

 

Volunteers have Hearts of gold,
Helping people, Young and old.
Always giving, Always sharing,
Volunteers... Are always caring.

------------------------------------

 

Valuable is the work you do.
Outstanding is how you always come through.
Loyal, sincere and full of good cheer,
Untiring in your efforts throughout the year...
Notable are the contributions you make.
Trustworthy in every project you take.
Eager to reach you're every goal.
Effective in the way you fulfill your role.
Ready with a smile like a shining star,
Special and wonderful, that's what you are.

-------------------------------------

 

You Did...
You didn’t have to do all that you did
But you did...
You didn’t have to give up so much time
But you did...
You didn’t have to put yourself out like you did
But you did...
You did when I didn’t expect you to
You did what no one else could
Thank you
For doing what you did...

--------------------------------------

 

And this one is especially for everyone here and in game... 🙂

 

Who You Are...
You are not your age,
Nor the size of clothes you wear,
You are not a weight,
Or the color of your hair.
You are not your name,
Or the dimples in your cheeks,
You are all the books you read,
And all the words you speak,
You are your croaky morning voice,
And the smiles you try to hide,
You're the sweetness in your laughter,
And every tear you've cried,
You're the songs you sing so loudly,
When you know you're all alone,
You're the places that you've been to,
And the one that you call home,
You're the things that you believe in,
And the people that you love,
You're the photos in your bedroom,
And the future you dream of,
You're made of so much beauty,
But it seems that you forgot,
When you decided that you were defined,
By all the things you're not.

----------------------------------------

 

   Anywho, thank you GM's from all my heart for what you do on a daily basis, and the gift that you have given all of us. City of Heroes and yes, these forums too, are a blessing in many ways. Often times we can forget that; the simple little things in life that are given to us without so much as knowing it happened. As a new (old) CoH player, I don't know you GM's really, or in truth you players as well. But I am thankful for all of you, especially the GM's (like GM Kaiju for example) who give and participate in something very special here. When I heard years after that NCSoft had shut down the game, I shed a tear of saddness for that which was lost. Now those tears are of joy that some people like the GM's decided to bring this game back. Homecoming is a very appt name for these forms folks, because I am sure that none of us... NONE of us ever expected CoH to be back. So thank you again GM's for all that you do, and all that we don't see or even know about "behind the scenes". You all rock, so keep on keeping on...

 

   Peace...

 

  P.S: Yeah this was a bit sappy I admit, but hey... I like poetry and giving thanks lol.

Now go hunt... kill Skulls (I mean arrest them... yeah, that's the ticket lol)...

When I got the game in March 2005 I couldn't sleep for the first 2 weeks; that's a good thing. But at shut down it's losing so much more than "just a game."  I met some of the SG mates IRL too.

 

Anyway. From an outlet for creativity to the comradery, From the seldom-player to those writing guides, From the financial donators and especiallly the incredible & talented staff making this all possible again, Thank You Everyone!

 

CoX, there is no substitute.
