    Can be something major such as meeting a good friend on here or something small as gaining a new gem :teehee:

    For me, the biggest would be meeting new friends. I have a few friends on here I talk to daily and have been close to over the last few years and I actually met my best friend on here we've met in person numerous times, text and snapchat every day, she's going to my wedding and is a really important person in my life if it weren't for TSR, I probably wouldn't have met her or other good friends I've made on here :yep:

    Reaching 11 gems and becoming a CT member (soon to be ST ) was cool too :teehee:

    This might sound really lame, but there was one year where I was voted Member of the Year for the whole website in the TSR Awards! :king1: I was quite chuffed at that, given there were over a million TSR accounts at the time but enough people had nominated and voted for little old me. I was very touched

    Another positive experience I had was when I finally plucked up the college to make formal complaints against my former uni. I wouldn't have had the guts to go through with it were it not for several members of GOG Soc encouraging me and helping me draft the complaint letters, etc. So many people went out of their way by reading over drafts of the letters etc. They were tremendously supportive and it still means a lot to me that people would do that for me

    Meeting many great people at a few meets and results day, knowing I contributed to helping a few people get into university and when I ve needed support or just a bit of a moan the teams always been there for me in my time on the support team
    Having my team mates vote for me to have the special snowflake award and getting nominated and 3rd place for a tsr award meant a lot to me too.
