    $\begingroup$ There has been dancing in the streets here.... well, I was dancing in the streets until a traffic warden reminded me that a) I was still in my pyjamas and b) I was a traffic hazard. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Chatroom theme update is up. Please let me know if there are any tweaks to be made. It's my first time and I'm a <s>doctor, not an escalator</s> developer, not a designer. :) $\endgroup$

Thank you to everyone that has made this graduation possible.

For all of the avid askers, answerers, editors, voters, flaggers, etc., my hat's off to you.

For the especially avid members (you know who you are), we literally could not have done this without you!

Not making any promises, but there may be some rewards to be had at some point. If not, I will fight for them.

    $\begingroup$ I nominate @Martin-マーチン for the 'our favorite member' award. And by 'our' I mean 'mine' but I'm certain there are others who feel the same. $\endgroup$ May 14, 2015 at 17:53

    $\begingroup$ I would love at least stickers or other promotional material. If I had enough, I'd be happy to post them around ACS meetings, etc. $\endgroup$ May 14, 2015 at 19:39

  • $\begingroup$ @Geoff Kurtis teased us with "swag" in his initial presentation. I guess this could be happening ;) See this picture. $\endgroup$ May 15, 2015 at 3:25

Something else needs to be mentioned - kudos to our moderators!

I came to a beta site yesterday to ask my first question.

I came somewhere else to receive my answer.

And the somewhere else is AWESOME!

Maybe my good question forced the system to launch this site ;)

Congratulations to everyone who put up a good job in the development and designing of this site.


I just wanted to say that I'm really, really happy to have had my small part in making Chemistry.SE what it is today. During my time here I've learned an amazing amount, interacted with some great people, and had fun trying to help whomever I could to the best of my ability. It's been one of my most rewarding experiences ever. When I look back at the day I joined two years ago, after coming home from a tiring shift in the lab but still deciding to join and spend an hour writing an answer, I'm very glad my past self put in the effort and took that first step.

Pride is something I rarely experience, but being here for this graduation definitely makes me feel proud. It means a lot.

Thank you so much, everyone!

    $\begingroup$ I have to disagree with one thing you said: "small". It's people like you who've made this whole crazy thing work. you should feel proud. Keep it up. You're making a difference to an incredible number of people. $\endgroup$
