Taking a quick break from the endless piles of mashed potatoes, gravy, and cranberry sauce that every Thanksgiving Day brings, I noticed something peculiar when I checked ZeldaInformer’s e-mail account: dozens of letters from fans thanking us simply for being so awesome. I guess I assumed we we’re like escalators or the Internet—totally taken for granted. Sure, the Lions got massacred earlier, but after reading these, I think this year’s Thanksgiving won’t be so bad after all. Figured I’d share a few of the ones that stuck out with you guys.
“ZI RULES!!!!” from EvilDarkFireLink12:
“HI ZELDA INFORMER, I JUST WANT TO SAY YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST ZELDA SITE IN EXISTANCE! I CHECK THE SITE EVERY DAY SO I CAN GET ALL OF THE ZELDA NEWS. YOU’RE ARTICLES ARE ALSO VERY GOOD SO GOOD JOB WRITERS! KEEP BEING THE BEST ZELDA SITE! LATER”
“I Love You Guys :)” from ZeldaChick69:
“Hello ZeldaInformer! I You guys are just so awesome! Every year on Thanksgiving I try to thank everyone and everything that’s important to me, so, uh, thanks! I can’t wait to play Spirit Tracks! I know you’ll have the best coverage of it ever! PS: Nick is my favorite. I bet he’s such a cutie IRL! Forget Team Edward, I’m Team Nick! Byez!
“Untitled” from SephirothMaster:
“As a rather austere theorist of all things Zelda and Zelda-related, I am all but required to say that in the unfortunate, hypothetical event that your website ceased to exist, not only would my knowledge of the series surely decrease, but the passion I hold in regards to discussing all of Link’s adventures would wholeheartedly vanish. I have only under rare occasions pronounced my gratitude to others; but I am left with no choice other than acknowledging just how much I appreciate your site and its efforts to truly being the only Zelda site one could designate as nonpareil.”
“Thank You, ZI” from CitizenChuck:
“A little cheesy, yeah, but whatever: I just want to say thanks to everybody at ZeldaInformer. I’ve seen a lot of Zelda sites in my time, but, for some reason, yours sticks out the most. It could be the design, the articles, the Bombers, the frequency of the news posts, or maybe even the forums—hell, it’s probably all of those things. ZeldaInformer really is the whole package. And you guys are only getting started. It’s hard to believe you’ve only been around a few years. It’s scary to think where you guys will be in a few more years. Probably on top of the world, heh. I’m rambling, but yeah, thanks and all that. Make sure everyone at ZI sees this.”
“zeldainformer the best” from elzeldamaestro:
“the zeldainformer is always the best place of zelda. it is definitively my favorite place of zelda in existence. especially, i hope that the members of the place should keep on doing his best work of bringing to us all the news of zelda. i know that the thanksgiving is an american holiday, but i rarely want to say that I am grateful to the zeldainformer anyhow. thank you zeldainformer. zeldainformer the best!”
Crazy stuff. On behalf of ZeldaInformer the best, I’d just like to thank you guys. Without y’all, we’d be nothing. So, loyal readers, what are you thankful for?
