Wabbott has left the building!

Level 15

My dear THWACKsters,

I knew this day would come eventually, but it doesn’t make leaving any easier.

I have been at SolarWinds almost exactly 5 years to the day, and half of that time I have spent devoted to you as your community manager. I want to thank you for being a part of my day every day for the past 2+ years and for letting me be a part of yours. When I joined THWACK I was a self-proclaimed nerd, but I’m leaving here a geek. I’ll never forget the dozens of missions we’ve been through, the SWUGs I’ve traveled to, the inside jokes that come up in every live chat (#DarkThemeForever), and the endless messages I’ve received from all of you. Thank you.

Before I sign off, I also need to publicly thank Danielle Higgins and Ben Garves. These two have been the best team members a wabbott could ever ask for. I could never thank Danielle enough for taking a chance on me and offering me my dream job. She trusted me with her former role and I hope I made her proud. To Ben, I want to express my gratitude for your humor, your willingness to always lend a helping hand, and for planning the most epic brainstorm meetings I’ve ever been a part of. Thank you both for everything, truly.

Fear not THWACKsters, I leave you in very capable hands.

That’s all folks!

wabbott​ I don’t think this question is right I can’t see a poll or anything how many points do we get. The link doesn’t work, I think this page is wrong.

noooooo.. all the best in everything you do thanks for everything you have done for this community it really is the best!!

I will sorely miss your polite responses to all the point hungry thwacksters, when things go astray, your presence at SWUGS and other outings, but mostly seeing your name often appear in the community.   I vote for a THWACK hall of Fame and you should be in it.   Good luck, you will be missed wabbott  . 

wabbott​ we will all miss you.

Safe travels and good luck on your future endeavors!.

Well dang it...

wabbott​, you will certainly be missed. If any of the other Thwacksters have not had the opportunity to meet or work with you then it is certainly a loss for them.  I will count myself lucky in that regard.

Do take care and don't forget, Once a Thwackster, Always a Thwackster.  You can visit still...well at least I hope you can.

Do take care and please keep in touch.

Level 14

Thank you wabbott​ for everything you have done for Thwack....

You will be greatly missed.... Best wishes

Wendy, you've been a shining light in our darkness, you have proven to be the pinnacle of patience, and your excellent efforts and achievements have been recognized and appreciated by us all.  May your future adventures be even more fun and rewarding to you and to your new peers and audiences.

You're already missed.

If you should find a need for a reference from a Thwackster, please feel free to count on me to provide a great one!

Good luck with your future employment wabbott​! You thanked Danielle for landing your dream job for you. There must be some motivation to do whatever it is you will be doing strong enough to leave your dream job. Come along often dream jobs do not do. Take care in your new adventure. Rejoice we will, when you return.

Thank you for your service and commitment here in the community, it's been splendid ridding with you since I met you. This time comes multiple times in a Man's carer journey as we cannot run away from progress except we want to remain where we are.

As you move up on the carer ladder, we wish you a smooth ride in your future endeavors.

Good luck and we will miss you.

But I am curious to whom we are to contact for some of our unfinished business?????

Are you kidding me? Why? What happened?

You endeared yourself as a good teacher who always got along well with her students since I joined the community. We all appreciate your service to the community and I join everyone to wish you all the best of luck as you exit the community, although you are still a part of the community.

We will miss your very inspiring and educative posts.

Love & Friendship always
