Congratulations and thanks to those (Greg and friends) who built PF and keep it running so well. It's an exceptionally warm lively community for learning and sharing all kinds of science---having watched PF over the years I have to say the obvious: it's an amazing success! Want to express special appreciation to Insight authors (e.g. Mfb and Brian Powell to name just two of many) who made the Insight feature a valuable new dimension to the site.

Than you so much for the award. Thanks to those who voted for me and, of course, to Greg and the Mods who make it all happen.
I am hoping to avoid the award for the grumpiest SA next year - I will try to be more positive and helpful and avoid the gut reaction to some of the hilarious questions and comments that I have read. I must start my replies with "Now that's very interesting . . . ."
I know who I shall be voting for next year. [Edit: I misplaced that sentence but, on second thoughts, I will let it stand where it is]

One year ago, I came here merely in order to ask certain problem I encounter in the middle of self-study with no intention at all of becoming an active member to the extent of obtaining three official recognitions after one year. As I came here again a few weeks later I realized that some of the posted questions were actually within the scope of my knowledge, tried to answer them, got positive response, and became more and more addicted to write answers. Eventually, answering problems has helped me prop up faster in my self-studies.
So, thanks to those who voted for me, and the mentors for the support. Congratulations to the other winners as well!

Oh wow, I didn't expect that. Thanks :).

@Greg Bernhardt: "Results are only viewable after voting" - as we cannot vote any more, can you make the results visible to everyone? I didn't vote for the insights polls but I would be interested in the results.

I am hoping to avoid the award for the grumpiest SA next year
Don't worry, 2015 award winners are not listed for 2016 awards.

This is awesome! With so many excellent Insights articles, it is an absolute honor to be granted this award. Thanks to Greg and all those who voted and read my posts! Incidentally, this will help motivate me to finally finish the next installment in my Poor Man's CMB Primer... :wink:

Thanks for the award and congratulations to the other winners. A special thanks to the biologists, chemists, and others who contribute to our "other sciences" community here. Despite its focus on math and physics, PF has always had some of the best biology discussion forums on the web.
