It was just over a year ago that our current head editor, genericIntent, joined the team and started helping with the editing for End Online. He has possibly been the greatest help in turning my horrendous grammar, half asleep sentences, and changing my mind in the middle of a paragraph, into a much more readable format.
I often made jokes about him taking a hammer to my writing in the process, and to be honest… No, I’m right, he really did take the metaphorical hammer to it. His well placed Monty Python jokes while editing were also always amusing.

Most people probably wouldn’t say it but you have my utmost gratitude, in the end you have helped me create a much better piece that more people are going to enjoy, maybe some of you who had difficulty with it originally will find it more pleasing to read.
