Sheila was elected as most helpful contributer to this website, and it's true, Sheila is even helpful where other members sigh and click away. She deserves this special honour.

Congratulations Sheila!

When did that election take place? I never heard about it.

I think it was all over the site a couple of months ago and lasted for naggingly too long, I'm surprised you've never heard about it.
I had its banners on top of ProZ homepage almost all the time, even though I have ads switched off, and Adblock on top of that.

That aside, congratulations to you, Sheila! I'm merely a silent reader of ProZ forums, and I know how much time and effort you contribute to the community. It's really wonderful to have you with us.

Edit: caught a preposition trying to escape

Oh, wow! Aug 24, 2017

That's really nice of you, Gerard. Thank you and thanks to everyone for your congratulations. It's great to feel so appreciated by other members of the site. To be honest, I do sometimes wonder whether people here don't get sick of the sound of my 'voice', and I'm sure it must happen icon_wink.gif.

But you know, even without the award I get a lot back from my contributions. There are too many freelancers being manipulated by unprincipled outsourcers who rely on the fact that they're isolated and therefore potentially weak. If just one person avoids falling for a scam, gets paid for their labour, or simply makes their profile here work better for them, then the time spent is worthwhile. It beats watching another repeat on the TV.

Thanks again icon_biggrin.gif and congratulation to the award winners in all the other categories!
