I just wanted to point out to everyone that Zaid has reached a point milestone! He has garnered 10,000 points! Everyone please take a moment and congratulate him! :D
I'd like to thank all of you for the compliments - I certainly wasn't expecting a Meta post about me :)
But it shouldn't stop with me
We need more people with five-digit rep in order to grow this site more and more.
How does one get into five-digits, one might ask. Nothing too complicated:
Do you have a question about repair, maintenance or something vehicle-related? Ask away! (Remember that some questions will be flagged as off-topic).
Don't have time? Post in the the Questions Sandbox for later reference :)
StackExchange policy demands that. The newcomers need it too. Especially to the newcomers, since chances are that they'll be used to the the old-fashioned PHP BB forums.
Vote on others' answers.
Because that is how this site rolls. No rep, no growth, the site stagnates.
And I don't mean just upvotes; downvotes are just as valuable.
Make a difference; be a legend
This site comes up among top hits on web searches.
Think about that for a moment.
Imagine the impact you can make to someone's life by contributing your knowledge here:
- A person whose AC doesn't work in the summer
- That lady who doesn't want to sink her savings into a fuel pump that wasn't the problem to begin with
- That DIY-er who wants to learn the right way to service their carburetor
- The dad who needs to get his daily driver back on the road as soon as possible
- The motorhead who wants to know if a cold air-intake is really the performance mod it's made out to be
This is what makes me tick; the rep is merely a small token of the community's appreciation.
Congrats Zaid! It seems like only yesterday you were at 9950 points. You blink, and before you know it, they're all grown up...
Congrats Zaid. Your mother and I are both very proud of you! Love your next level answers and attention to detail. Also, thanks for being a source and let me pest you about everything all the time. You've been very beneficial in helping me navigate this virtual world. I appreciate it. You've certainly earned your 10K with a lot of commitment. Congrats!
Simply put, YOU ARE THE MAN!
Congratulations and thanks for your thoughtful answers (which, of course, is why we're here :-)
Congratulations Zaid! You don't know me, but I spend a lot of time on this site, and one of the things I like best is how much your community truly cares for each other. The way that you people express that care by voting is an example to all other SE sites!
10K is a huge achievement, and another 10k between January and July is even more impressive! Thanks for all your dedication and great contributions!
