    This was such a fix. This worse than a FIFA world cup bid! I should have won!

    And my dad told me I'd never amount to anything! Just wait till I tell him that a small number of people whom I've never met voted me member of the year of a rather niche hobby internet forum, primarily based on a guide I wrote two years ago for one very specific, and possibly superfluous aspect of said hobby.

    Of course I'll have to explain to him what a forum is so that he can appreciate the magnitude of this achievement, but once I do he'll finally have something to be proud of.

    When my wife hears about this she'll finally recognise that all those hours spent brewing, all the money spent, the new Grainfather, the damage to the kitchen, the wort spilled on the floor, bottles broken and liver damage, have in fact all been worthwhile and leading up to this moment.

    Of everything I've accomplished in 2019 so far, this is by a long way my proudest moment so thanks to all those who voted for me and I eagerly await my award. Presumably there's a monetary award of some sort, maybe one of those giant cheques you see on TV?

    :p

    I just looked up "member" in my viz profanisaurus and I'm surprised I didn't place higher.

    The number of votes says how much we appreciate the constant responses to question, after question, after question on water. By far the most read thread on the forum. Cheers sir

    One of these cheques maybe? What number is that
