One year on...A Clap for the Rootschat Founders and The Moderators!!!
« on: Tuesday 23 March 21 11:02 GMT (UK) »
I would just like to say what a godsend Rootschat has been during this very difficult and testing time for us all. This is my go to place when time hangs heavy with the necessary restrictions in place. We are all experiencing Social Deprivation the likes of which has never been seen in our lifetime, and are all missing Family and friends.
So please put your hands together for the people behind the scenes who keep this show on the road for us all to enjoy. Long may it continue  :D

Thank You Trystan & Sarah  :-*

Take Care  ;)

Nicely said Carol. Rootschat has been a haven for many. the diary threads have been a particularly good place to vent frustrations and also have a laugh.

Yes, I do think it's been helpful. I tend to "drop in" most days, mid afternoon, another little ritual to get through the days, keep your mind off bad news,  and reduce the boredom that surrounds those of us who try to obey all the restrictions, even whilst grinding their teeth.
Thank you.

I second, third etc all of the above. Let's hope a record number of family history queries have been solved in the past year, as well as many laughs had, rants diffused and feline deeds related. Thank you all.

Oh Treetotal -- thank you for supplying this thread. I couldn't agree more -- it's been a mind-saver and such a good 'place' to visit every day.

Thank you so much Trystan and Sarah and everyone else behind the scenes.

Also to fellow Rootschatters - I honestly don't know what I would have done without you all.

Thank You, Thank You.
