Every once in a while, you may have seen topics highlighting a random box of goodies people received in the mail that included a letter thanking them for being a “Community Hero”. We’ve seen a few requests from other community members asking how they, too, can be considered Community Heroes.
We absolutely value each and every person that visits the forums. We see many, many fans who are active and friendly contributors, and we are extremely grateful to all of them. We here at DC Universe work hard to maintain a fun, engaging environment for everyone to feel like they can relax and have a good time, and watching everyone hang out is its own reward for us.
But often, we see people in the community go above and beyond. Below are a just a few reasons some have been thanked for their contributions:
They start unique initiatives within the forums that give people a reason to come together and celebrate DC in unique, elevated ways.
They start external programs in their schools or personal communities that share the DC love.
They handled a challenging scenario on the forums with maturity, patience, compassion and good humor, and actively turned a negative situation into a positive one.
They have consistently and constructively offered help to other members, welcomed new members, and provided meaningful resources to those who ask.
From everyone on the DCU Team, thanks for celebrating your heroic DC fandom with us!
Because of how highly manual the process is, we are unfortunately only able to select a few people every couple months; so you better believe we have a waitlist of people we can’t wait to thank!
