I just wanted to say to everyone on the board. As much as we complain about this and that, the fact that we keep showing up at Marriott's around the world as well as spending time on here means there must be at least a few positives. Sure the CM's most likely are paid huge salaries to assist, but we should stop for a minute and give them a virtual hug for at least putting up with all of us and helping now and then as well.
Let's see the love folks - tomorrow's the day!
Thanks for all you do!!!! I visit often, because I have been a big fan of Marriott for nearly 30 years, continue to be loyal to the brand, because Marriott has treated me pretty well over the years, because I enjoy the discussions, shared experiences, recommendations with fellow travelers - and because the CMs make sure we have a voice - and our voices are heard. Can't expect everything we ask for to be implemented, but some things have - and if you have had a bad experience or concern or question, they work directly with you to seek resolution. By the way, this is a hug.
I have huge respect for NathalieF, carat, and all the others on the moderation team. I had the pleasure of meeting Nathalie not long after she took over as the Community Manager. I hope other Insiders get the same opportunity some day. She is a lovely person.
The team does a great job of maintaining this forum. They also go well beyond their moderation responsibilities by helping folks here resolve all manner of customer service issues.
Thank you for everything you do, every day.
BEST DAY EVER!!!
You are all so sweet!! We're pretty lucky to have such a great group of Insiders. Your contributions, whether they be questions or concerns, have truly made this site what it is today. Jumping into this role, I never thought my love of travel would grow as much as it has, not to mention the length of my bucket list. There is still so much to contribute and much more to learn from experienced travelers like yourselves. Cheers!!
Hugs to NathalieF and her Mod Squad!
You all are truly the best!
