Default Community Pride

I'm a member of a lot of online forums for all kinds of different things. I just wanted to take a minute to commend this community in particular. Of all the boards I belong to, this is the only one with such a rich sense of community pride and camaraderie. For the most part, this community is patient and respectful (something most others lack) as well as extremely informative and helpful.

The 'Elite' status is especially telling. Near as I can tell, there are no functional perks or incentives to becoming an elite, yet many have donated and become elites anyway; simply to help improve and support the community they love.

In a world that provides us a digital smoke screen to let us do any say whatever rude, immature and disrespectful things we may be thinking or feeling about other people, HookahPro rises above that and functions, in many ways, like a real-life community that helps and cares for one another.

So, I just wanted to say kudos to HookahPro and its members for helping to make a really enjoyable place to interact online. Kudos especially to Sam and the mods for not abusing their position simply because they can, but rather engaging like everyone else, helping and being helped daily.

Very cool. I feel privileged to be a member here.

That is all.

Yeah, I have tried other forums and things, but when it comes down to disagreements it seems like it explodes into slamming each other with creative, but vulgar insults. I think part of what makes this a great community is that most people who smoke hookah have a fairly laid back personality, but like you said i think a big thing is that the Mods/Samb actively participate in the forums and they try to fairly and quickly diffuse problems so it doesn't take away from the community.

Very nice of you guys to say. I decided on making Hookah Pro my home site for everything hookah after a short comparison. The members of this community are much more helpful and friendly than those I found elsewhere. I was honored when I was asked to be a Moderator. Being a Moderator is not a thankless job. Sometimes members make a thoughtful post like this that make dealing with a few rulebreakers seem not so bad. LOL

It really is nice to hear such compliments. I have been to other forums and none compare to Hookah Pro. I was very honored to have been asked to become a Moderator and let me tell you its a lot of responsiblity!
Sometimes people might not understand at first why things are done and they get upset and question our actions but eventually its shown that its done for the benefit of the community. Praise such as this really does make our work worthwhile! But dont forget, you all deserve as much praise too, you are Hookah Pro, and WE are the BEST Hookah community out there!

I totally agree. My wife is a member of another forum. When she saw I did an intro post in the Introduction area she laughed. She said on her boards a person posted an intro, just an intro and got banned for it,because the main members are so jaded they think their lame.

I also wanna give a big kudos to their being no grammar Nazis. My writing skills are poor and has kept me from posting to their boards. I really appreciate that I am not being corrected after every post.

I think I am going to throw up. That was too much brown nosing in too many words.

I come here for the vile comments, outright honest commentary whether good or bad, and general asshattery that makes HP fun.

/end sarcasm

You and Kalutika(sp?) are doing a damn good job at it! I raise my hose to you and all the other mods and Sam tonight. Cheers!

Well really its a reflection of how calm and peaceful the hookah community is as a whole. Honestly, why join a forum for the mere point of connecting with others if you're gonna be disrespectful. I don't know any of you personally but i would be happy to share my hookah with you and have a chat. When you find a place full of people that you fit in with, there's no reason to be rude. no matter our hobbies, interests, occupations we all have thing in common, and it holds us together. I'm very proud to be apart of this community :]
