As the 2 year anniversary approaches, I was thinking about the community members who really make this game great, and onepoppa came straight to mind. Poppa not only hosts amazing casual gamerooms daily, he also finds time to make quality mods, karts and tracks frequently. And above that, he is always organising events, and always ready to try out your latest track and give you a bit of feedback, or give you some tips on creating. I know first hand that when I started this game, poppa was quick to offer feedback when I requested it and he was my first friend I made in modspot. It is people like onepoppa who make me want to play this game whenever I turn on my PS3, and he completely deserves to be recognised for all of the great work he does in this game. It makes me wonder how the hell 'onepoppa' is sometimes censored lol!
Inspired by this thread where mini_schnauzer67 openly thanks OnePoppa for his efforts on keeping the game alive, who else do you think deserves kudos for their acts that keep this game alive? I myself would like to thank two people:

Hmm, good question. Let's see:
Laidbackcat - He's been a great friend since I met him online in summer 2010, he's offered so much helpful advice along the way and is always willing to test tracks with me, plus he's a hell of a nice bloke!
prob_alex - Constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in game and creating excellent tutorial for newcomers to devour.
Biver_ - Has always tried to create incredibly complex tracks that, again, push the boundaries of what can be done with the editor to try and ensure no two laps are ever the same!
Mr_Dufus - For discovering a great deal of the glitches in the track editor that have helped to enhance the game and also
ArgorokX - For that one glitch to help place objects where they don't want to go. Absolutely invaluable.
jmg/POULTRY_GOD - Never fails to make me laugh in casual game rooms, he's a stand up guy who gets a lot of flack because he hates cheating of ANY kind and is very vocal about it. I respect that immensely.
ModnationSD - Since he came onboard in early 2011 he's done so much to try and keep the community thriving despite getting practically zero support from the game developers. He's also been a great advocator of my tracks which has helped me become more widely known throughout the nation. Also (controversial choice here perhaps)...
puppethand666 - In the early stages was extremely encouraging and supportive of my work and I learned a lot from him, just a shame he left the game in 2011 and has NEVER returned.
abc123y - For taking the time to record timetrials on ALL of the Project: Timeship tracks and upload them to youtube to help publicise our first group collaboration project, who of course we have OnePoppa to thank for. Roll on Project: Cinema!

I haven't met most of the people listed so far in the game to much, so I can't contribute too much, but there is someone that I do know and that is my man Freshwick! WHAT! He can host GP's and other events and still have time to record and upload the vids to youtube! (I would know because I'm a suscriber!) And that's not including his other vids and whatever else he does! Who else is this dedicated to the game?

I would like to openly thank:
Assyrion: Thanks for being on top of your game at all times.
Freshwick: Being a good host during Import Nights or any other day.
Dr. Diabolical: For just being a friend, even if I haven't raced with him. (Not as far as I remember.)
This list is for my friends on the forums. -Exobud
