Hey all So I'm writing my acknowledgments in the thesis and after the obvious recognition shout outs, advisers, colleagues, collaborators, grants, family, I feel like I should at least mention the faceless internet help. I'm not talking about wikipedia, but discussion forums like this one or physics stackexchange. I wanted to mention the sites and the userbase in general. Is this too weird? I am not going to use usernames like "My sincere thanks to mushroomeater38" Should I PM specific users asking for real names and thank them by name individually? Anyone did something similar before?
