Awards Assigned, February 2021
In this thread I'd like to take a moment and thank all of the contributors on this forum. While my own activity has been waning over the last few weeks, I've seen an uptick of constructive discussions. This is an achievement we should all be proud of. So today I'm now coming to you with a new feature. Repeating earlier thoughts I'd like to remark again that the self support section continues to be an outstanding example of community self service. Not only do people help eachother, members are actively on the lookout for questions and to help others as swiftly as possible.
I've also particularly enjoyed the submissions from fellow motorists in the Rides subsection. A gentle reminder for everyone that if you have images to show off of your vehicle, the Rides section is the place to be. In addition I'll continue to dish out the "Wheel of Riding" award for every contributor at this stage.
Wishing you all continued health, prosperity and a swift ending to COVID restrictions.
A rising star in our community who has accumulated over a 100 posts in the past few weeks. We highlight Stefan because he highlights the positive, constructive and sometimes critical spirit of the MRA Community Forum. Stefan is active mostly in the Self Service area, to either aid other users or to pitch in on ongoing discussions. While hearing what could be better about MRA is never the favored activity of the staff, reading the respectful and constructive comments of people like Stefan is a nice change and inspires us all to work harder.
Reinhard can be found mostly aiding the German speaking community with answers in the Self Service area. Many German members have found their questions or ideas commented on by Reinhard. While saying that he's solely a member of the German speaking community would be selling him short. Reinhard can be found anywhere on the forum, actively taking part in lively discussions.
Drabslab is one of the earliest members of our forum and has retained a steady stream of positive contributions. While he's one of the first to sign up on the forum, Drab has been posting under the default avatar for months. It's great to see that there's now a unique profile picture for such an outstanding member of our community. What I find particularly great about Drabslab's contributions on the forum is that he's always quick to respond, shares his thoughts and treats all members of the community fairly.
Having become not only one of the two Seniors in the RouteXpert team, Nick continues to be an active member of the community. Regularly signalling questions of import to the MRA team and aiding members of the community with his unlimited pools of wisdom in articulate comments with flawless grammar. It comes as no surprise that Nick still holds the position as the member with the most reputation points (myself not included, as that'd be cheating).
The last but not least member of our community. Hans is one of the two Seniors in the RouteXpert team and a well known name in the Dutch community. Hans is widely known for his activities on and off the forum and his unbridled enthusiasm for planning amazing routes. Hans takes his time to help everyone, boasting the largest post count on the forum.
A new name that we see popping up in the Self Service section helping others in the Dutch and English Self Service Areas. Thank you Jack!
Posted a great topic in the Rides section about his nice convertible BMW. As an avid BMW fan myself, I liked this one particularly. In addition this brought a nice discussion about the perks of driving a convertible to the Forum.
Posted a topic about his beautiful little Miata on the forum. Great car and beautiful shots!
An active and enthusiastic member of the community who posted some great pictures of his dreamy Porsche to the RIdes section.

Ooops, I did not know that I was watched so closely, and you even noticed I changed my avatar.
Thank you for the kind words, it is fun contributing where possible. Actually, considering the strong user base of MRA, I think that the forum is underused by the MRA users but that is another issue perhaps.

@Timo-Martosatiman-MRA, wow, never knew MRA did these kinds of awards hahaha! Nice. Thanks for the honours but offcourse, like is mentioned by yourself, it all is to help other members appreciate MRA. I'll keep on assisting here on the forum whenever and wherever I can.
Thanks for these awards!
