PokemonCollectors acts of kindness/member and mod appreciate thread!

(I wish there was a tag listed as "storytime" or something since I enjoy posting these, and it seems like alot of other people enjoy posting on them^^ For now, I'll just use the "questions" tag...)

Anyhow, this round of storytime is a little different.... Everytime there's a huge modpost, like yesterday, warning us about some members who ended up being some bad apples, it's like it puts a damper on things.... It really is a downer when you hear things like that! And the thing is, I never want it to create trust issues with the Community... I'll be honest here, part of the reason I didn't do GAs in the past (besides the fact that I know there can be lots of fees involves), was because I'd find out later on people who ran it ended up on the banned members list! But, I did participate in one GA, and because of the people who ran it (this was back when doing Community GAs were allowed) I felt good in doing so, and trusted them because I knew they were nice people running it :) The thing is, I don't want other people to have trust issues, especially after a modpost mentioning multiple people!

So, I thought I'd lighting things up, and have everyone share stories of their awesome experiences! I got the inspiration from the modpost itself, when people replied to a post I made in it, and some people were saying things like "someone accidently sent me money and I sent it back to them. I didn't feel right in keeping it..."

So, maybe there was something someone did that went above and beyond for you? Maybe you got freebies in your purchase that you weren't expecting? Or, maybe you just wanted to thank a certain person or mod just for always doing a great job, or for always doing great GAs, or SOMETHING! Perhaps it's something you did yourself that you feel proud of doing a kind act?

As for me, I'm not nearly as active as others with purchases and sales, so I don't have too many stories to share... But it is nice when you buy something, and out of nowhere a bunch of stickers fall out! Always a nice surprise^^ As for myself, as I said in the modpost, I myself, try to be as honest and reliable as possible! I even refunded people money because I overestimated shipping by like $1. But even with that extra $1 I never felt right in just keeping it >_> Also, everyone I HAVE delt with in all my sales and purchases have been AWESOME!! I've guess I've been picking some great people to buy from, because I've had zero issues. Same thing with all my buyers :)
Also, thank you mods, ALL OF YOUS for your hard work in keeping this place a clean, and happy place (and I hope you'll allow this post of mine which is... a little different than the normal question posts, as I've said). I just really wanted a post to help brighten people's spirits, and not shy away thinking that everyone here is a scammer.
