Where Is The Love?

Okay so I've noticed the site has been lacking in good vibes recently so I've compiled a list of 101 users I like and why I like them. Althought Sputnik can be a den of ravenous wolves sometimes, every now and then I'm reminded why I keep coming back here. Stuff like the outpouring of grief over the news about Daniel Davis' recent passing (RIP hard man) and the support for Gyro during dire times helped me keep faith in the community. If your name doesn't appear it's probably just 'cause I haven't interacted with you very much but you prob rule anyways. List is not ranked.
1Pink Floyd
The Dark Side of the Moon

Evilford - This guy loves his DM which automatically puts him in my good books plus he's pretty cool for an old guy.
2Sachiko M
Bar Sachiko

Nimb (SachikoM/LivingThrowaway) - So yeah sometimes (very often) you can be annoying with your constant attempts to be ejjy as phuck but you actually bring something interesting to the site taste wise and you're a good dude once you get passed the bullshit.
3Sweet Trip
Velocity : Design : Comfort

Cygnatti - Well what can I say about Dearest Cyg that hasn't already been said? This guy brings the love no matter what.

Dannyboy - This guy is the biggest goob on the site but he's a loveable goob who's always up for a chat.

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

Just Got Back from the Discomfort

Yaknips - So yeah you're kind of a fuckin weirdo but I'll let that slide because you're alright once people get to know you never change~
