So Far nothing :-[

Yomagic gave me my first yoyo. Still have it, a YYF Northstar. A TON of stuff from TheRyanFace and advice that really kept me from being an ignorant person who knows nothing about yoyos

I think just offering and answer to any question I’ve had to ask is enough. Somebody also helped promote my blog which I’m really thankful for. :slight_smile:


#5

Just teaching me tricks and letting me try different yoyos ;D.Everyone is just so friendly,to bad not everyone in this world is that nice. :’(


#6

Many members have been generous with their time in regard to my reviews. I am very thankful for the amazing support I have gotten for all the reviews I have done so far. Every time I write one up my inbox gets flooded with thank you’s and questions. Many times I gets messages just asking for more reviews and compliments which are nice to receive.

I have also had the pleasure of dealing with some great people on the BST. Everyone has been great and gone above and beyond!


#7

Well, I got a free 3-1 Tom Kuhn No Jive from the guy that inspired me, great input, support, and great experiences!


#8

I recieved a Badass Hatrick and Badass Ministar from a guy. IT was because he knew I loved general-yos. What a nice thing to do, and what a cool guy.


#9

Well, jrodriguez has been more than generous. He sent me spacers for my SPYY Radian Mk II, and made me a real spiffy set of caps for my Journey and HM, as well as sent me a really nice Legacy.

YoMike gave me a ton of stuff over the years, and I have beautiful KC Jewel No-Jive from John Rollins.

Well any question I have gets answered. People take their own time to organize contests. And the list just goes on and on.


#11

Julius of proyo fame hosts a free class 4 times a week that I try to go to at least once a week. I would say that Andre was pretty generous making this website free.


#12

deeman103 sent out a yoyo before he got the $ for it. And everyone who helps coordinate contests and giveaways. Honestly the best community ever, I run track and x-country those guys are vicous!


#13

I’ve received a No Jive 3-1 from yoyo408 (Dana) on another forum that I am eternally grateful for. I still have it and play it regulary. Lately it has me wanting more.

I’ve also received a DMII from King Felix for winning a short story contest, a raw, polished Battosai from a christmas exchange I took part in last christmas, and recently a ton of cool stuff from azznboyaz (Wilson).

I love the yoyo community. I give back where I can often as well.

When I first started a generous stranger sent me a care package while I was stationed in Iraq. This was the beginning of my yoyo career and I wish I knew who sent me that package. While the yoyo’s i received were nothing special (Duncan Reflex, Spintastics Tornado II, Fireball) they remain special to me for sentimental value alone.


#14

Thats who gave me my Hatrick and MiniStar. What an awesome guy!


(SR) #15

Got a couple of amazing deals on some General Yo’s, this forum helped me alot too when I was first starting out.


(DOGS) #16

And I gave you the other MiniStar <3 .

I also received a yoyo from Dana, that I passed on to a little kid at NER through a rock-paper-scissors contest with all the little kids who didn’t have metals yet. I’ve also had some fantastic deals with Dana.

No good deed goes unnoticed. I bought a Goose Bay Campfire and sent it to his address without him knowing, as a thanks for what he has done for Jim and myself.


#17
