I would just like to thank all the Compendium members who went to the trouble of saving the Gym for us. I started playing pokemon when the Jungle Expansion came out so I've been here through all the Hype. I remeber spending recess trading cards and trading cards behind the cafateria when my school made Pokemon contraband. But, sadly, I didn't find the Gym until its second reincarnation. When the TCG started too lose popularity at school I spent more and more time at WizPoG perfecting my Dark Muk deck. When I moved to a new, small town that was totally void of the card play I took refuge in the electronic gaming forum. The people there were helpful and patient with me and I evantualy became so capable that I rose to the position of MOD on the Ruins gaming fourm. The Gym has become a sort of electronic home to me, and even when I slack off on my posting I still feel welcome when I come back to full activity. In sort, I am very gratefull to all the work you people have put forth in order to save the Gym for all of us, and for all the work you will put forth to keep it up and running and up-to-date. And I encourage any others who feel the way I do to post their thankyous here as a sort of "Organized Thank-You."
