The Mike Sullivan Appreciation Thread

    It's been pointed out many times, not least by Kier himself, that Mike often misses out on a lot of the credit, both for the brilliance that was vB3 and now for the even greater brilliance that is XenForo.

    Kier does tend to get all the glory, his name seems to be "out there" more than Mike's, not sure why that is, but I know Kier will agree that Mike deserves equal recognition.

    Mike's not really an unsung hero, but he's certainly a lesser sung hero!

    So this thread is my slightly cheesy attempt to redress that balance and say "thanks" to Mike for the amazing work he does, both the work he did on vB before he left and of course for the sheer amazingness of what's on here.

    Here's to someone who, along with Kier, is a true internet phenomenon!

    Thanks, Mike!!

    Kier who? :p

    Seriously, from my time at vB, I know of Mike's accomplishments and skill, and they are second to none. xenForo has one hell of a team.

    He's more of a behind the scenes kind of guy and i appreciate that. Doesn't get caught up in the drama that is the public eye.

    Yep he has said himself that he is a more behind-the-scenes kind of person, but I'm sure that he does appreciate the occasional acknowledgement.

    So here's to you Mike! [​IMG]
