It's been a while, but I remember with great fondness the epic discussions we had in Contribute, and on the old ideas board. Those discussions delivered so much that has improved giffgaff over the years, and the way in which you encouraged members to join in with their views and ideas made the forum what it was.
Many lament that the forum isn't the same these days, and that maybe so, but your time on the community side was one of those rare occasions in life where all the planets align and the experience was mutually beneficial to all concerned, to all the members that were here at the time, to the development of the giffgaff community and to yourself. A true definition of giffgaff if there ever was one.
I know you'll be brilliant in whatever you do, so enjoy Expedia, they're lucky to get you. It's a shame that some of the old members don't visit very often, but as seems to be the way these days I'll @ mention a few. I'm sure they'd wish to send their best wishes.
Hopefully others are still lurking and will pop in.
Hi Hazel , I'm sad to hear that giffgaff ( and the community ) is losing you , but I know that you'll be an asset to Expedia ( as you have been to giffgaff ) , They'e lucky to get you ...... Thank you for all the encouragement and help you gave me ( and many others ) , You'll be missed .
You say that the members of the giffgaff community helped you through a low period in your life , it's really nice of you to say so , I think there were times when you did the same for many community members .... You helped to make the giffgaff community what is and that is something to be proud of ,
With Timo gone , Mike going and now you giffgaff is losing some brilliant members of the old team ..... I feel sure that those who are at ' the new gaff ' will remember you all and wish you all well in whatever ventures you take on.
All the best to you and good luck with Expedia ..... don't be a stranger pop in whenever you can .
