AW Birthdays...

Mar 29, 2004, 3:45pm
Hi everyone......mj's bday showing was MY LAST ONE....I was in charge for the
last 3 months and now Im done.... I would like to thank all of you for all the
help and for been sooooo nice to me. In these last 3 months I have been
humiliated, agravated, ignored and hurt.......But all was worthed when the Bday
person was happy and like a child looking all his (hers) presents ....I will
remember these 3 months forever...cause was when I discover real good souls and
how ppl can be so hurtfull sometimes. I like once again to thank tunablues for
the help with some bdays sites (without you a could never make it)....Thanks and
I will be here for help in case of an emergency comes
along.......LOL.....NOT:)))))) J/K ....Hugs Vera:))))

Hi Lady are a great GZ bday builder:))))) And I agree with
everything you wrote here... At the end its worthed..... And thanks soooo much
for the kind words....BTW i will still doing my bday buildings..... And about
the *in charge* was not a so nice way to say what i was trying to say......but
you know my english is not so good.....Well the torch was passed and im sure the
burning will be reward at the end with someone as nice as you saying the same
words to you......Hugs and have fun until June:))))

[View Quote] > I hear ya Vera! You've done a fantastic job and you are appreciated by those

The "one object" I won was graciously increased to several sets of objects that I asked to have added. They are in Alphaworld now. You're already using my prize. :-) The curved glass walls, glass door, spheres and trees. Those are what I requested to be added as my "single object" prize. ;) Thanks to Mindseye (previously aka Nomad), tunablues and dreamer2 for making them, to Andras for submitting them for me, and to Rick for accepting them. At the same time, OneSummer and NightRaven independently also submitted some objects - the media "sign" objects.

AFantasy World's 2004 Building Contest & Halloween Party!!!!

Sep 11, 2004, 4:22am
There you go!!!! Thanks SW Comit:))) And Ferrrrrrrrrrrrr you dont need to enter
anymore contenst YOU ARE A MASTER BUILDER ALREADY and leave the contest for the
beginers....... Or for the ones that likes to copy others buildings and show
up........ At least if they are complaining about your (laggy area) you dont
have to worry about ppl stealing your buildings......LOL.......I still think you
should go slow on the coronas and the lights anyway....But then my puter is 10
years old do't mind me:)))

[View Quote] > Two tips for perforrmance:
