Share your most memorable moments on the O2 community

[ Edited ]

Memories

 

Hey everyone, 

 

Continuing this week's theme of celebrating the O2 community 5th Birthday we'd like to hear about your most memorable moments from your time on the O2 community! It could be a time when you or another member really made a difference helping a newbie, a friendship that started on the forums or just a hilarious thread that made you smile. Smiley Happy

 

Memorable moments from the community team:

 

For me it was my first ever thread where I introduced myself to the community. I was quite nervous coming on board to such a well established community but I received a lovely warm welcome and was made to feel at home right away. - Martin 

 

There are so many memories! All the times that I've noticed new members getting the help they need, having a fun discussion in off topic, getting inspired by someone here talking about specific things they have been doing... even little things like starting to watch Star Trek (I'm a Trekkie now because of our off topic thread!), building some cool stuff from LEGOs and even getting back to some mobile games again with renewed enthusiasm. Smiley Happy  - Marjo

 

The most memorable moment for me was when I introduced myself to the community and the forum login system broke down so I couldn’t even reply!  Crazy Well, that was ‘a good start’ for the new Head of Community.... what can I say.... Destroy - Mercedes

 

So please let us know your fondest memories from the O2 community below. Smiley Wink

Mine would be "hardware of the cable"

Either that or the bloke caught out by swear filter saying how he'd been stuck on phone for hours and had this and that issue and o2 were ****!
My reply:
Wow, If I'd have been treated like that, I wouldn't have given them 4 stars tbh.


the above Gold badge is not official and as such does not represent O2 community's officially sanctioned winners badges. They are blue, I made this gold myself, because I wanted to, after 4 years of writing the best reviews seen on these here forums, I decided to take that status, and adopt it into my own coloured badge.
To clarify. I changed the colour and added the years, O2 community admin, did not. Please don't be confused.

Re: Share your most memorable moments on the O2 community

Being sent a phone that wouldn't work. I panicked - first of all, I didn't want to make @Martin-O2 cry. Secondly, what would I do about my 100% reviewed rate?!

Re: Share your most memorable moments on the O2 community

My fondest moment doing 'In the Spotlight'. Very nervous on how my answers would be received but everyone was very kind. I feel like an old hand now but, of course, am still a newbie and still making mistakes.

Re: Share your most memorable moments on the O2 community

I couldn't honestly pick out one moment...so allow me to be a bit gushy. 4 years ago Cleo crept on to this forum. I had been given my first 'not so' smartphone and was desperate for help. The first few people to help were @jonsie @perksie @Bambino @MI5

Thank god the phone was a Samsung. (for obvious reasons) After 4 years I am no techy whiz but I know a lot more than ever before. So I came for help and because of the friendship support and encouragement I got from those mentioned and a lot of others since then...I stayed. I have made many friends....and hope to make more. Can't really think of a better long term moment....( Back to normal now.... time for gushing over ) Cat

Oh thanks to@viridis ....who once made me a Purple Rain cocktail in Wantys Smiley Tongue
