Larry thanks for creating this post. Having been around Pickle since Week 2, I guess I have not always been present around Discord, but always try to catch up on good conversation. In no particular order here are some of the community members that I think have always been there and contributed for the good of Pickle. I am sure I missed a some contributors, and hope other community members catch everyone that has been great for the Pickle ecosystem in this thread!
All community moderators, I don’t know each one of them, but every one that I have had a conversation with have always been helpful. Massive thanks to all of you for being there day in day out and helping out the newbs and also providing value in Discord conversations.!
@jjdubs - I have to credit him with my Pickle journey and actually educating me on DeFI basics with some cool ELI5 stories. Great understanding of DeFI concepts and can explain them in a newbie friendly way! I have not seen him around lately but really hope that he still believes and sticks around PICKLE!
@scotty - Great medium articles - Again brilliant at explaining stuff and writing coherent and persuasive articles. Always there to help and committed.!!
@Mah_Dills - Good understanding of the project, always involved in the critical conversations on Discord and provides valuable feedback.
@0xBoxer - Introduced me to Dune Analytics. Super cool dashboards and again always involved and provides value to critical conversations on Discord.
@picklegohan - Hilarious memes, keeps twitter lively and is our mascot. Always creates content that sparks conversation and brings in some big guns like Bobby ong to discord. This guy is just cool to have around!
@IrrI - Again great initiative. Talks the talk and walks the walk, follows through - can see that in the Pickle forum.

@leekuanjew - Always great contribution on the forums, writes really well and puts their point across in an easy to read narrative.
@chimaera - Always there to answer questions within his realm and also always see him contributing on the Forum.
---------- EDIT - MVP - @yyctrader wow… this dude is just plain explosive. Just finished reading his feedback ([RFC] Curve Vote-locking Proposal) on the vision for pickle, what he sees for the future as a community member and how he has dissected the current situation. This is just golden. Its almost every question I had in my mind which he had either solutions for or some work around. Truly amazed at the quality of the post and the feel proud to be involved in a project that has community members like this!
The best part about each one of the above tagged is that every time there is a conversation on a new strategy, governance or anything else that really matters, these guys are always there to provide feedback and reading through Discord conversations that involve them educates others. That’s the best about each of these users tagged above!
