Join us for Administrator Appreciation Day!
Once, when the School of Dragons first opened, Hiccup realized there was a problem. The problem was that there were more students than teachers. He decided to go to a group of six ordinary Vikings and asked them to help keep the school from falling to chaos.
He chose Brynjolf and Siren to help the Headmaster, their wit and strong spirits guiding them.
Snod he put in charge of the secrets. He trusted him to not leak them.
Brush was to make the campus more lively and less dreary, she grabbed her painting smock, painting supplies, dragons, and creativity and set to work.
Hyuckster volunteered to make the students' day easier with a quick joke, and an easy laugh, so Hiccup let him do his thing.
Brunhilde was a gamble. Hiccup met her by chance and she had a set of lungs on her that almost scared him and Toothless stiff. Once she calmed down, they realized she would be perfect for the position of "Enforcer" so he asked if she was looking for a job. She said she was and he hired her on the spot.
This team, this group of six, was chosen to defend out forum and our school from ne'er-do-wells and enemies, even from within our own ranks.
And so, on this, the 28th day of August, the year 2015, we come together to Honor these brave men and women who everyday put their reputations on the line in the name of justice, order, and honesty. Let's give them a big Hooray! as a small way of saying thanks for everything they have done.

Come one! Come all! Today is a very special day for us vikings! Today has been declared a holiday. A holiday to just say thanks for what the administrators here do for us.
A time to stop complaining, and just say a great big, "Thanks!"
We are all super excited! Let's get this party started!!
Me, and catidragons created some posters that you, and the administrators can use in your signatures, and other places. The ones not marked are made by me.

Thanks everyone who helped make these banners!!
If you have any stories of ways the administrators have helped you, or just want to say thanks, PLEASE DO!!
Please, keep this positive. This is a holiday, not a funeral.
Here is a little interview from the administrators themselves!
1- How long have you guys been admins?
Well- We have been the School of Dragons admins since day 1, back in July of 2013. We love every minute of it.
2- What is the most challenging about being an admin?
While we would love to give everything the Vikings want in and out of game, we unfortuantely cannot. The hardest part is seeing and hearing all of these great ideas, and trust me when I say we report every single one to the teams back here, and not being able to do all of it.
The second hardest thing is seeing amazing ideas being shared and posted BUT we are already working on it and we can't tell you. ;) And this one does happen quite a bit, a few are in the works as we speak.
3- What is your favorite thing about being an admin?
Our favorite part of being an admin are 2 specific things
1- Being able to interact every day with you Vikings who play the game. We love that we can deliver specific requests from you guys and you all appreciate that. We take everything you say, bugs, account issues, ideas, dragons you want, etc. and make sure they get done on our team's end. We work with everyone and we have the amazing voice of the Community on our side.
2- The second thing is we love the 'Thank You' stuff for the admins. We try and do our best and help everyone on the forum, even at times it might not seem like that too everyone. A lot of private messages and behind the scene stuff go on. We love seeing that our Vikings appreciate what we do for them. To this day, one of our favorite videos (and we played it for the entire company) is a video a Viking fan made on our first birthday. The music, the beat, the text, all amazing- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95Lkz3DzR1I
This video inspired our Shoutout Sundays.
4- Who is your favorite HTTYD character?
Well we all have favorite characters. Mine is Astrid, Brynjolf's is Hiccup, Brush is Fishlegs, Snod the Sneak's is Snotlout, Hyuckster is Ruff and Tuff, and Brunhilde is Phlegma.
5- Have you ever met any of the actors?
We have met a few of the actors (they stopped by our booth at Comic Con) as well as the director. All amazing people!
6- What are some ways we can help you?
If there is one thing we would want from the Community is to keep being awesome and support each other. We hate seeing people gang up on other people just because of word of mouth. We need to all support each other and keep remembering we are Vikings, there is a greater evil to come that we need to prepare to fight alongside each other (yes I am talking about a very very VERY future release).
Thank you for reading everyone! I hope you will take the time to share these posters, and make our gratitude known!
thanks for EVERYTHINK!!!!!!!!!! :D
Thanks for everything!
This is just so... inspirational!!! Thank you, Dear Admins!!! Thank you! :')
Big Shout out to Admin:
We might grumble and complain alot about different things, but we do appreciate what you are doing for the School of Dragons.
Thanks Queen for remind us to say positive things besides our complains because they are trying their best in what they do.
All of the Phantoms says thank you Admin for being the dedicated team you are.
As the others have said, thank you, Admins. I really hope this doesn't turn into a "But they didn't do this, that, and the other thing!" post...
Thank you, Admins! Y'all are truly awesome! :)
I'm glad that somebody made a post like this :) The Admins don't get enough credit for what they do. And way too many people blame them for things that are beyond their control.
Thank you, Admins. We really do appreciate everything you do for us, even though it may not seem like it at times.
THANK YOU! YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST! :D

Thank you guys so much!
You keep the spam off the forums, at least as much as you can.
You let us have an idea of what's comeing so we can get super excited about it and have all the fun of anticipation, without revealing so much there's no surprise when it comes.
You tell the developers about our ideas, and many of them get implimented.
You tell the developers about our bugs, so they can get fixed.
Thank you so much! You guys are the best!
Yes, thank you admins for a wonderful two years!
seems like this is a little late but better late than never!
