Questioners are good too

Thanks for the mention Shirley

Whilst I can't think of any specific names off the top of my head, those who just ask questions are important to the site as well. When I see a particularly intriguing question it inspires me to research the subject and I end up better informed as a result.

Definitely Euan McLennan for his answers and Steve Collings for his articles which have helped me over this past year.

Can I add my thanks

I do agree with UKtaxpal.  Having started working for myself this year, I do find Aweb a really useful resource.  So I would also like to add a heartfelt thanks to those who regularly take the time to post articles and answer questions.  A happy and prosperous 2012 to you all.

I am flattered by the fact I have stuck in your memory as a useful contributor, though I feel the vast majority of my posts have been non-technical :)

uktaxpal - happy new year to you also

I tend to remember the people who ask the questions more than the people who answer.

I have to say the one person that sticks out for me this year is First Tab.

Some of his questions were highly amusing although some people did suggest that he was making some of them up and they were a work of fiction. I say, no matter, he still went to the trouble of writing it all down.

He did seem to wind one or two people up, but you have to admire his persistence in the face of adversity.


As regards some of the answers, there have been quite a few helpful comments from a large number of people. The answers they have given have been based on personal experience, rather than cutting and pasting from a text book or should I say web page.

Well done to those for taking the time to answer.


Also there are people who give general replies to queries. I probably fall into this category myself.  Maybe none of these people deserve an award this year, but maybe next year.

There are further categories of people eg people who give unhelpful replies and your self-promotional type.

There is another category of questioner/answerer, but their postings get deleted fairly quickly. These people are commonly known as your internet trolling type, and they are to be found on all types of message boards, so it is no surprise that they sometimes surface on accountingweb.

Whichever category you fall into, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year.

Not forgetting the staff & moderation parties who work behind the scenes, a Happy New Year to you also.

Is isthisi an anagram of me? If so, thanks for the mention... good to know I have been helpful :)  I try my best to help others, but most of my knowledge lies with corporation tax, which is only a small subset of the questions asked on AW...

Many Thanks for the kind comments. I'd like to thank everyone who takes part in this site because it is all the questions and answers that make this site work.   I use it a lot to read up on answers that don,t come from a book . 

2011 was a really tough year for everyone with so many natural disasters and unrest in the world last year, so may lives lost it was impossible to take in , Japan , Turkey, Christchurch, USA tornadoes , Famine.  There were so many business effected by the riots and people who lost their businesses and homes it was heartbreaking.  It makes you appreciate your family , friends and your home.

I know none of us can change any of above , but it is good to know that we all help each other to make our businesses better as it is a tough market.  I hope 2012 will be a better year for everyone and I look forward to a very productive year on the AWeb and would like to thank John and the AWeb team and everyone.


Kindest Regards Sarah Douglas . Douglas Accountancy and Bookkeeping Services Glasgow.
