    This has to be one of the best and most polite forums I've ever joined. Everyone has been so helpful and the maturity lever is far above some other forums I belong to. So good work and thanks to all the moderators and members!

    That's what Android Forums is all about. It's about people helping one another in their time of need, or just having a friendly chat. Even though AF is pretty laid back, just about everyone follows the rules here, so that's a win-win for both members and staff.

    Therefore, I've been on these forums longer than anywhere else, and I plan to remain here for many years more. :)

    Its the members that make this place so great. With out you there would be no forum. We strive to have a fun clean family atmosphere and you all make that happen. Being on staff has taught me just how important your job is. As a member of the Best Android Forum in the World we have maintained a maturity level that rivals all else. You the member make that happen. Me the member makes that happen. This is my internet home and just like my real home I keep it clean and bug free (bugs in this case is spam) I stayed here because of members like you who opened up and was willing to help.

    I agree with argedion. It's all about the members. These forums are filled with the most friendly members I've found on the internet. If not for the great people that make up AF we'd all have moved on long ago.

    What they said. :)

    Really, with 1,260,846 members we are just a drop in the comprehensive ocean of Android Forums.

    (Sorry, Mr. Dickens.)

    I wholeheartedly share your feelings. Earlier this year I went through a really hard time (my mom died), and I just can't say enough about how supportive and caring fellow AF members were. They listened patiently and offered comfort and support, and advice from their own personal experiences of losing loved ones, and it was such an oasis for me. I love this place. And I'm glad to see you do, too. :D

    As our resident frog (Argedion) said, it's the members who make this the place it is. :thumb:

    I'd like to say, thank you as well, to all my AF members here. You all have created an atmosphere of hospitality and knowledge of pretty much any mobile device out there. If you can't find help here, then your pretty much out of luck. God bless you all.

    I've felt the same way since joining this forum. The qualify of information is fantastic, and it's definitely one of the friendlier forums I've been on.

    Thanks to everyone who helps out :)

    Hey Jerk! What's your problem???? ;) :D

    Seriously, I fully agree. People here can disagree, while still being civil.

    Yes that's true and one of the major problems I've found on other forums is that the "being civil" part goes out the window. Sometimes people treat disagreements as if they are a life or death matter!

    That's because, here, if they disagree with us, we kill them. ;)

    Many people take everything much too seriously. There is one thing that NOBODY takes seriously ...

    Is this a test? :D

    Respectfully... that's what it's all about. There will always be a different view for no two people are alike. Some respect for another's view makes all the difference. We, here at AF, pull that respect out of the reply bag with most every post. That's what makes you the member special and these forums enjoyable.

    I've tried 'hanging out' at 'real' social sites and it's like trying to simultaneously keep track of all the conversations at Union Station. This one is very comfortable; mostly about droids but with plenty of other topics... like this.

    I have a Macbook ipad and an iphone! :eek::secruity:

    I bought my Mom a Kindle and a phone last year and was lurking for info to set it up for her! I guess that says it all:D


    Don't shoot Don't shoot!! TM Stinky:)

    The apple stuff was given to me to test out..

    Hubby works in techy tech.. he had a Blackberry then a Windows phone and I just convinced him to get an android:D and he loves it!

    think his tablet and laptop are google...I know they are not apple..

    hey...on a side note I just tried google glass!!!! My opinion is...
    it's annoying and over rated!! sorry

    carry on:)

    ok I have to edit because hubby always tells me he doesn't work in the nitty gritty techy tech programmer stuff... per say...it's more innovation and connected ...blah blah....look a squirrel!!

    my point is ..dexter is here:);)
    no my point is I don't even own an android device! and this is by far my favorite social network forum
