The A Lotta Moms Appreciation Thread

Post by Snowth Poogle on Thu Jan 29, 2015 8:38 pm

Once upon a time, there was an ARTHUR fan forum called Elwood City Central, and at Elwood City Central, there was a fellow by the name of November.

One day, November woke up in the middle of December and decided to multiple into a lot of moms in January.

When Elwood City Central began to fizzle into the sunset, A Lotta Moms took it upon himself to keep the Arthur fan community coralled together in one place, and launched the next chapter in Elwood City Central's history... enter, the Slums of Elwood, otherwise known as the Red Sky era of Elwood City Central (for those of you who don't get it, look up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1987 cartoon).

A Lotta Moms has dedicated as much time as he can to help keep the fandom and the forum alive, even though a hectic work life sometimes swamps him away from the Slums for extended periods of time, which weighs on him when it doesn't have to.

This thread is show A Lotta Moms the appreciation he deserves for putting so much time, effort, and dedication into the Slums, even when he doesn't have the time to. So thanks A Lotta Moms for this forum you've given us, and for those periods of time where you find yourself caught up in everyday life, just remember this little insentive that always awaits you whenever you return:

Aw, shucks.  I...I don't know what to say!  The Moms are in tears!   Very Happy

The Slums wouldn't have been able to make it without everyone's support and enthusiasm, so in return, I'd like to give everybody a great big painful group hug!  Everyone who migrated over from other sites and newcomers alike - we've all worked together to make this cozy little place what it is today.  I've been away for about a week due to work, but fear not!  I have every intention of sticking around here until the bitter end.  It takes more real life to stop a Moms!  

And I must say, lovely snapshot you've managed to capture of Molly.  I have to hand it to you, the last time I tried to get that close to her she tore off three of my arms and four of my tentacles (only two of which have managed to grow back).  I'm printing it out to tape over my desk as I type this.  Razz

Thanks again for everything!

The Arthur fandom would be a lot less fun without the Slums. Here, we can talk about anything. We can be as funny, crazy, and strange as we want. There are no boundaries, and we can go to all extremes, as long as we're respectful, promoting all our fan theories and even garnering quite a bit of support for them. I watched this forum grow. We've experienced our hardships, good days and bad days, but it's just made it stronger.
I'm proud of that.
And who better deserves an appreciation thread than the guy who made it all possible? We have a great admin who's put so much effort into this forum and stuck by us for all this time. Hell, if I were to make a forum it'd probably go to crap within seconds. But that's because Lotta persevered and reached out to all the sites he could in the quest to draw all Arthur fans to this safe haven. And, as our member count shows, word has spread. We have a group on DeviantArt, we're promoted on Tumblr. The dedication Lotta has to the fandom is admirable, at the very least.
If it weren't for the Slums, I would have never even have joined the fandom. I feared criticism for my ideas, and spent 2 years completely alone, keeping everything to myself. Once I saw just how crazy this place was, it was only natural that I joined the community and began to interact with everyone. Everything fell in place, and I have Lotta to thank for everything. Even if I get caught up in my studies, or if life whisks me away, I always make sure to check this forum at least a few times a week. It's become a part of me.
This thread was needed. Necessary, actually, and it should have been made sooner. Because most of us take what Lotta does for granted. At least, I sometimes do. Sad We just need an occasional reminder that this place would be nothing, NOTHING without him. And, quite honestly, the Arthur fandom would be terrifying if not for the Slums of Elwood.

I love you I love you THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH LOTTA, FOR EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE, AND LONG LIVE THE SLUMS!!!!!!! I love you I love you

BTW: Amazing Molly fanart, Snowth. affraid

It really means a lot to me, Meg.  I love you  Thank you.  

Suffice it to say that I wouldn't have been able to stick it out without your support and friendship all this time.  Whether our long discussions of the show and its nuances, your help in dealing with past trolls, or all of the countless other things.  Without you, I'd probably still honestly believe that Arthur and Buster are just best friends forever and nothing else.  Imagine that!  Wink  Your presence is always missed while you're busy with life priorities (which is always totally understandable), but it goes without saying that you'll always have a home here.

*Very Big Hug*

Be nice, Kerry. Kroger isn't responsible for everything in the world, though it would probably be a better planet if it was. bounce

The Slums are everything to the online Arthur fandom, Lotta. Ranging from fun to silly to thought-provoking while not taking itself too seriously. In addition, how many forums can say that they've gotten the actual people who work on the show to post on it? (Well, even if one of them was... Laughing ) Anyways, I as well appreciate you for making it all happen. *hugs* I love you

Thanks, Grebe!  Smile   Glad you could swing by - hopefully everything's going well with college and life.  Your contributions to the Slums have likewise helped make this place what it is, whether it's been your many creative ideas or murderous clown sprees!

Once again, a big thanks to everyone for helping make this place what it is.  I think we all deserve a great deal of appreciation and applause.
