Reminder: Share Your Thoughts on 10 Years of TSTO!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just putting out a little reminder that TOMORROW, Thursday February 24th, we’ll be recording our very special Addicts live where YOU get to join us and talk about TSTO!

Over the last few weeks, Safi and I have been recording some awesome episodes of Addicts Live with a few very special guests, to take a look back at 10 years of TSTO! (you can view the first one here, and another will air on Saturday)  We’ve been having a blast doing this and taking a look back at the fun history of TSTO with those who’ve been part of running TSTO communities over the years, and now we want to hear from YOU!  Those of you who have been a part of the TSTO Community!

We put this out there last Friday, and a few of you have signed up, but we wanted to just put up another reminder for those that may have missed it! We want you to join us on a very special episode of Addicts Live to talk about all this TSTO!  We’ll be recording this episode on Thursday February 24th at 9pm Eastern US Time (so 8pm Central, 7pm Mountain, 6pm Pacific…and 2am in the UK).  If you would like to join us (you can show your face if you’d like, but if you’re shy you can also just lend your voice), fill out the form below and make sure you’re available on Thursday February 24th at 9pm Eastern time. (note we record over Skype, so that’s the only software you’d need)

A direct link to the form can be found here

I’ll be sending out an email later tonight to everyone who signed up with more details.  So if you’ve signed up, be on the lookout for that email tonight!

Too shy to join Addicts Live in person?  Well you can still participate by sharing your favorite TSTO event, moments, or other fond memories on this post, from a few weeks ago.  We’ll be reading all of those comments on this episode as well!

Thanks!

Join Addicts Live to Celebrate 10 Years of TSTO!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Over the last few weeks, Safi and I have been working on something REALLY fun.  We’ve been recording some awesome episodes of Addicts Live with a few very special guests, to take a look back at 10 years of TSTO! (look for the first of those episodes to air tomorrow)  We’ve been having a blast doing this and taking a look back at the fun history of TSTO with those who’ve been part of running TSTO communities over the years.

But now we want to hear from YOU!  Those of you who have been a part of the TSTO Community!

A couple of weeks ago we asked for your input on your favorite events in TSTO history (you can find that post here), and while we’re going to read your comments on Addicts Live, we thought it would also be fun to hear it straight from your mouth!

So, we want you to join us on a very special episode of Addicts Live to talk about all this TSTO!  We’ll be recording this episode on Thursday February 24th at 9pm Eastern US Time (so 8pm Central, 7pm Mountain, 6pm Pacific…and 2am in the UK).  If you would like to join us (you can show your face if you’d like, but if you’re shy you can also just lend your voice), fill out the form below and make sure you’re available on Thursday February 24th at 9pm Eastern time.

A direct link to the form can be found here

Be sure to check your emails early next week for more details about recording the show, and we really hope to see you there!

Merry Christmas!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Christmas!  It’s Christmas! Santa was here!!! Woo-hoo!!!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find the latest on the Christmas Update here), as the Addicts celebrate Christmas with our families.

Basically, we are pre-occupied today and hope YOU are too. I think all of us need a day to step away and just relax, unwind and enjoy those around us. So you won’t see much going on here. Your comments will likely sit in moderation for a bit. Pretty much it is going to be a quiet day on the Addicts sites while we….BRACE YOURSELVES…take a day off. SHOCKING I KNOW!!!

No worries, we promise all won’t be lost in a day. We always have our eyes and ears open. Even if you do not see or hear from us, does not mean we aren’t watching out for you. We will return after the holiday with any changes and more info about the Christmas Event.  So for today….ENJOY THE SILENCE!

Act 3 is slated to hit on Sunday, so you have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the day.  So, enjoy Christmas. Even if you don’t celebrate it.  Enjoy the peace and quiet and stillness of the day.  If you don’t tap today you’ll still do just fine with the prize track.  Slow down, and enjoy the day! It only comes around once a year! 🙂

Well, that’s it from us.  But we want to take a moment to wish you and your families a VERY Merry Christmas!  Have a great day everyone and be safe!

Merry Christmas from the Addicts

P.S. If you want to see how the Little Addicts spent Christmas Eve and today..check out instagram. 🙂

I’m Back And A Little Update…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Feels like it’s been a while since I’ve said that, two weeks to be exact.  Did you miss me? I missed you guys.

Safi did an AMAZING job filling in for me while I was away, with his busy travel/work schedule I know it wasn’t easy for him but he knocked it out of the park in my absence!  And, for the most part, you all were extremely respectful and helpful!  And for both of those things, I am extremely grateful to Safi and this amazing community!

So where have I been?  What took me away for two weeks? Contrary to popular belief…I was not in fact on vacation.  Sorry CJ Disney was, unfortunately, not where I spent the last two weeks. 

I’ve been keeping a secret from you guys for quite a while now, and it’s finally time to let the cat out of the bag….

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US!  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants, and insane sales at the mall!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Northward Bound Event here, as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.  Although…..Super Safi will likely be around, as Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month.  So like a lot of you, Safi will be working today too!

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Wookiee, Safi and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

And I (Alissa) am extremely grateful for Safi for covering this event so well and allowing me to take my first true break from the site in 8 years. Sure I’ve taken vacations before but I’ve always has posts in “the hopper” for my time away, this time I left Safi with nothing…because the event hadn’t hit when I left…and he really stepped up! I’ll be back in a few more days…so try not to miss me too much! 😉

Here at Addicts, we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too! Although it’s been a crazy couple of years all around the world, I encourage you to take a moment to remember you are not alone and, despite what the world may be telling you, you have a lot to be thankful for…even if it doesn’t always seem that way. 

Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!
