And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.

With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Q3: I'm kind of glad I wasn't on last night at all, because I have absolutely no recollection of this at all. Was this in the chat, or some thread I'm not remembering? Which pweb incarnation?

Q4: OSC made the inaugural post, as I recall. It was damn long, too.

Nomi, Fred, Ed: You've officially crossed the finish line, so if you so choose, you may skip the next two questions and wait for the bonus. You may also feel free to continue.

I don't feel like searching and since I already finished the boardgame, I'm going to make an educated guess:

Jan, welcome to the other side (it's like the Dark Side, only less awesome); you may answer the last question tomorrow but you do not need the points. Bonus question is still recommended, however.

Isn't Steve the only one (except Jan) with kids? I sure hope so, since that's my guess.

Steve is the only one I know of who has kids (except Jan, but i'm pretty sure I would have remembered if Jan put up a pic like that, it's awesome.)

So i'm guessing Steve.

Isn't Ami still a mod? She's got at least a couple kids too. That's actually the other one I considered, other than Steve.

Woo Hoo!

I will likely answer tomorrow anyway, but for the bonus, here's my answer:
***Warning: Mushy***
I love pweb because I love having friends scattered all over the map - friends that I have known longer then the majority of my meatspace friends. I love that I can take you guys with me whereever I go, and especially next year when I'm struggling with loneliness in a brand new place, you all will be there.

Ali, wave hello and goodbye to the final task; you only have the bonus left to do, if you so wish.





Bonito, Catherine, I sent PMs but I'm not sure you sign in often; may I get email addresses? I hunted down everyone else's, I think.

I really want to say Orange, so i'm going to : P

Also, for the bonus point:

The thing I love most about pweb is probably the connections. I mean, I've met some of my favorite people in the world just because of this site that I stumbled across while I was bored. It's not just my connections too, I love to see that other people have met (and even got married!)
