[ Edited ]

Just to mention that @jonsie  also received an #O2surprise.

What I liked about that, it showed they were 'personalised'. For instance , he was travelling to Germany and there were a few things to help him with the journey. So good on O2 (and our Admin staff) for picking up on that

 

I also loved the discussions Music Festivals, Music: Nature v Nurture.

 

On a personal note, I would like to thank @Mi-Amigo  for his Beatles quizzes. An amazing amount of work for him and great enjoyment for a lot of us. wink

 

Not forgetting @pgn  for the 'invention' of The Naughty Step joy

Re: Community Recap: March 2019

Thanks for sharing your favourite threads @TallTrees! I'm really pleased the word search puzzles have been so popular and we'll certainly be posting more. wink

 

Of course thanks for the reminder @Cleoriff  and apologies for missing you on that shout out @jonsie!

 

The naughty step really made my day joy I think it will be a permanent part of the community for the foreseeable future. 

 

That's what the recaps for @liggerz87  so you can catch up on anything you've missed. wink

Re: Community Recap: March 2019

It seems appropriate now to thank admin and O2 again for the wonderful surprise I received, it was a shock but was very welcome indeed.

So, having said that, let's now recap on a great March but hope that the many problems with the community website are dealt with promptly by Lithium in April. They are detailed elsewhere so I won't list them here atm relieved

Re: Community Recap: March 2019

I`d like to say it was great to read that @jonsie and @Cleoriff had both, deservedly, received 02 surprise boxes.

The topics on music and festivals brought back many happy memories and was a great opportunity to share experiences with others.

I was flattered to have been chlosen to be the subject for the Community Spotlight and hope you know a little bit more about me.

I`d like to thank @Cleoriff for her kind comments about the Beatles` Challenges which I have set and run. These have been a true labour of love for me and I would like to thank all the members who took part in the last one - which was to find names of people in the lyrics of Beatles songs. Between them the seven members found a staggering 101 names - more than listed on a Beatles fan website, which goes to show the knowledge of the 02 Community members. The new Challenge is up and running and any member s welcome to come and take part.

I`d also like to thank @pgn for creating the Naughty Step as extension of Alice`s Tea Party - yes, folks these do exist on "off topic".

All in all, a great month for me in the Community and hope that all the members found something of interest.

I cannot end this post without thanking the great admin - @Martin-O2 ; @Marjo ; and @EmilieT - who do a brilliant job on this Community.

Re: Community Recap: March 2019

I regret hat I may have recapped March elsewhere and stepped on a few toes....

Ah well, sometimes, when things aren't going too well,  you just don't care and want to share
