    • Donating is beneficial but not required for promotions.
    • Forum Crew work is beneficial but not required for promotions.
    It has been a long time since the last promotions. We have a lot of catching up to do. Now that the functionality for promotions is available, this promotion round is just the first of many.

    After review of the following accounts, I am happy congratulate these members with their deserved upgrade to Palladium membership:
    Please congratulate these members with their accomplishment.

    If you did not make it this promotion, then don't worry. There are a large number of members who are very close to promotion and who almost make the requirements. It will not be long until the next promotion. Just take a look at the above requirements and especially the trophies that you can gather.

    Well I'll be damned! Thank you, Alfa, I came to check the list to see where congratulations were in order and found my own name on the list.
    I'm quite honored, as being just a member of DF has brought me so much fulfillment. Being a member of standing brings me even greater pride. I promise to use the super powers that come with this promotion for good... wait, no super powers?! Ok then, I guess I'll settle for continuing to help those I can and do what I can to keep DF the best informational drug site on the internet.
    Congratulations to everyone else on this list. All are deserved and I always look forward to reading your posts and following your examples.

    Gosh darn, thank you for the honor. I will try to do everything I can do to live up to your expectations for me and the rest of us. Congratulations to the other people who advanced along with me. There are names missing who have made notable contributions, and I'm sure they will be similarly honored soon.

    I'm reminded of the Girl Scout Code of Honor:

    "On my honor, I will try
    To do my duty to (Drugs-Forum) and my country
    To help other people at all times,
    And obey the (Drugs-Forum) laws."

    Don't ask me how I remember that, when I have been looking for my car keys for hours!

    I'd just like to add that if this is the group I have been promoted with, then I am in good company indeed. Diverboone, I always keep an eye out for your informative posts, as I do Name goes here and hookedonhelping. Cwb, ladywolf, and Waiting for the Fall, you always have compassionate and experienced perspectives to share, and I'm lucky to consider you friends. Emelita has shown so much patience for members in need. Everyone on that list is a member I aspire to be like in some way. Way to go, everyone.

    Thank you.

    I'm surprised my name turned up, but, thank you!

    Congratulations to everyone on the list, I hope you give yourself a pat on the back for all your effort. Sadly, a few good members are missing. Can't wait to see the next roll of promotions come through.

    Don't think this will sway my opinion Alfa! I still think you're an alien.

    Grats to everyone on the list. It's nice to be recognized for the contributions made to this great board.

    I'm honored. My goal here is just to give back to a community that's been supportive of me though my ups and downs.
    The real thanks goes to the staff here who keep this forum running smooth as silk. A lot of work keeping everyone and everything in order.
    However, thank you for the promotion.

    I forgot to say that this Forum and the people in it are responsible for my relatively good mental health these days. Thank you all for your support.

    I first heard of this news yesterday. I have been busily in deep thought with what I should post. What could I say that would that would be effective in explaining my complete gratitude for such an honor. What I have come to realize, I’m speechless. Very few things in life have left me speechless. This honor joins the ranks of those very few. Congratulations to all the members who appear in the promotion list.
